Najib explains to Umno division heads over controversial issues during luncheon
PETALING JAYA: Umno division heads who attended a lunch with the Prime Minister in Sri Perdana in Putrajaya were in upbeat mood.
According to several Umno division heads who attended the luncheon ahead of the party's 69th anniversary celebrations on Monday, members were happy with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's explanation on issues confronting his leadership.
“The mood among members is very good. There's strong support for PM," said Umno supreme council member Dr Puad Zarkashi, who is also the Batu Pahat Umno division chief.
A Sabah Umno division head said the Umno president reiterated what he had said in a solidarity gathering in Tawau on Sunday.
"He said that no one could tell him to step down as Prime Minister as long as the people supported him," said the Sabah politician who did not want to be identified.
"Najib also said he never brought anyone down to go up in politics. (Tun) Dr Mahathir Mohamad had his problems when he was in power but he (Najib) supported him."
The Prime Minister, said the Sabah division head, also talked about 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), explaining that critics should wait for the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to complete its investigation into the state-owned investment fund.
"Najib said if there was any wrongdoing, the person responsible must be held accountable," he said. "Nobody questioned him after he explained about 1MDB, they merely nodded their heads."
The Sabah politician said one of the division heads asked Najib to explain about the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
"Najib answered that the rakyat have to wait to see the benefits of GST. He also said he has been in politics for 40 years and he was in politics to help the rakyat."
The division head said that the Umno president also spoke about Tabung Haji.
"Najib said that Tabung Haji was a business deal.
"And the profits from the deal would have gone to the depositors,” he said. “Najib said Tabung Haji had to back out of the deal as the purchase was twisted and people had the wrong interpretation."
Another Sabah division head said that they were told by Najib to be patient and that the truth would prevail.
According to him, Najib said, “If there was any wrongdoing, no one will be protected.
(Note: I wish the two Sabah division heads who were quoted had given their name to the The Star reporters so that the story can have more "umph".)
This statement should be highlighted "Nobody questioned him after he explained about 1MDB, they merely nodded their heads". Ketua Umno oh Ketua Umno.ReplyDelete

I agreed with the comments from Sabahan UMNO leaders that " they were satisfied with Najib's explanation on the range of issues raised by Tun Mahathir, including GST. Yes as Najib says we need to be patient in order to see the results of his transformation programs for the last 5-6 years.ReplyDelete
