KUALA SELANGOR: Tan Sri Noh Omar says he feels he has been "cast aside" despite serving as Tanjong Karang Umno chief for 30 years.

"I led the Tanjong Karang Umno division for six terms, almost 30 years.

"If you want to throw me out, do it properly. Don't treat me like trash," said the six-term Tanjong Karang MP.

Noh said since his "old house" had burned down, he had no choice but to look for a "new umbrella".

"They want to break Tanjong Karang Umno apart. But let's stand up together and support Perikatan," he said.

Noh was expected to make an announcement of his political direction at Perikatan Nasional's maiden mega ceramah, themed The New Selangor Journey (Jelajah Selangor Baharu) in Tanjong Karang on Sunday (June 4) night.

However, he only repeated that he would work hard to ensure Tanjong Karang becomes a Perikatan stronghold and help the coalition win the upcoming Selangor state polls.

Selangor Perikatan chairman Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, I his speech, said Noh Omar been attending several coalition programmes to lend his support.

"Tan Sri, what are you waiting for? A few days ago, you were at Sungai Besar (Perikatan event), and tonight you are here in Tanjong Karang.

"The daughter has joined (Perikatan). What is the father waiting for?" he said at the event attended by over 2,000 people that was dubbed as the launch of the "green wave" in Selangor.

It was reported that Noh's daughter, Nurul Syazwani, who is Tanjung Karang Bersatu Srikandi chief, would contest a state seat within the Tanjong Karang parliamentary constituency.

Also present at the event were other Perikatan leaders such as the coalition's election director Datuk Seri Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor, Arau MP Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, Selangor PAS commissioner Datuk Dr Mohd Yunus Hairi and others.
