KUALA LUMPUR: There is "no way" Gerakan Tanah Air (GTA) will work with Umno, says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic).
The GTA chairman and former prime minister said this in response to questions on whether his movement would welcome Umno and Barisan Nasional in the absence of Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
Dr Mahathir said that while GTA is unwilling to work with Umno as a party, there are good and bad individuals in Umno.
On whether Umno could change its image with the incarceration of Najib, Dr Mahathir said the party’s image is already marred by corruption and money politics.
"When we ask for support, the question they ask is how much are you going to give? They ask for money," he said.
"It doesn’t matter (what happens to the country) as long as they get the money. That is Umno now, this is not the old Umno that I left," he said.
