Ahmad Zahid’s visit to Cameron Highlands to benefit the people, says Wan Rosdy

KUANTAN: There is nothing to support the allegations made by a blogger about Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's visit to Cameron Highlands, says Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail (pic).

Wan Rosdy said the Deputy Prime Minister visited the Sungai Ruil Orang Asli village on Saturday (January 6) to evaluate the situation following a landslide in October.

"Due to the visit, some important decisions that benefit the people have been made.

"It was followed up with the Umno president's grassroots tour programme with the Cameron Highlands Umno division. The programme was attended by Umno leaders at the state and division levels," said Wan Rosdy in a statement on Monday (Jan 8).

He said the accusation made by blogger Raja Petra that the Umno president had ordered all Barisan Nasional MPs to gather in Cameron Highlands to express their support for the Prime Minister was incorrect and simply defamatory.

"These defamatory accusations are only made to sensationalise the Dubai Move issue. In fact, it was made by a veteran blogger who enslaved himself abroad out of fear of action being taken against him for the slander made almost every day.

"So I advise Malaysians not to believe such cheap defamation. The Umno party will continue to uphold the decree of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who used his authority to propose that this unity government be established.

"Full focus and attention will be given to the country and the people, not to play cheap politics that is detrimental," said Wan Rosdy, who is an Umno vice president.
