I can ‘come back to life’, says Tajuddin

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, who has been suspended for six years from Umno, has dropped a broad hint that he will be back.

The controversial Pasir Salak MP said he was unperturbed by the suspension from Umno, saying it was not “a death sentence”.

“I am still Umno, no problem. That gantung (suspension) does not mean being hanged to death, what’s the problem?

“If you want to gantung (hang someone), gantung until they are dead. If they don’t die, they might come back to life,” he said in the Dewan Rakyat yesterday.

On Friday, Umno suspended Tajudddin and Alor Setar division chief Datuk Mohd Yusof Ismail, both of whom have been been critical of Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, for six years.

Mohd Yusof said he did not know why he was suspended.

The party’s supreme council also sacked blogger and former Bandar Tun Razak Umno division secretary Datuk Zaharin Mohd Yasin, another vociferous critic.

In June, Tajuddin was removed from the Umno supreme council after calling Ahmad Zahid a liability, demanding the party president resign from his post.

Tajuddin’s name was also dropped as Malaysia’s likely candidate for ambassador to Indonesia.
