Someone behind Deepak’s media explosion – Husam

Someone behind Deepak’s media explosion – Husam
For Deepak Jaikishan to come out in the open and drop bombshell on prime minister Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor ahead of UMNO’s 66th Annual General Assembly, he must have received assurance of his safety discreetly, claims PAS vice president Husam Musa.
“I am convinced, Deepak will not make statement if he did not receive any guarantee from anyone. This means, there’s internal party behind Deepak’s movement,” said Husam in a statement today published in his blog today.
Over the past two days, Deepak had went into a media blitz, baring details on his relationship with Najib’s family and his involvement in private investigator P Balasubramaniam’s saga.
Bala, who was the private detective hired by Abdul Razak Baginda, the former aide of Najib who was acquitted by the court of murdering Altantuya, issued a statutory declaration on July 3, 2008, before retracting it the next day.
Not long after, he fled the country, saying he feared for his life and his family's safety.
In 2009, Bala claimed he had been paid RM5 million by Deepak to retract his first statutory declaration.
Husam, who is also a Kelantan state exco member, said Deepak is a businessman not a politician per say, so the damaging statement made ahead of UMNO AGM must be a calculated move.
Against the backdrop, Husam said UMNO has a better chance of surviving in the election if they could let go Najib.
“Letting go of Najib before election can raise some hope on UMNO to continue its survival, under a new premise of a prime minister, it usually brings a new hope,” said Husam.
Hishamuddin suffers the similar fate
Besides Najib, UMNO vice president Hishamuddin Hussein, who is also the Home Minister is also facing similar situation.
Former inspector general of police Musa Hassan had accused Hishamuddin of meddling in the police’s affairs and investigation yesterday.
Musa said Hishammuddin had violated police protocols by giving instructions directly to junior police officers and a district police chief without his knowledge.
“So, I highlighted to him (Hishammuddin) Section 4 (1) of the Police Act (1967, which says) that the command and control of the police is by the IGP and not the minister.
“Of course, I cannot be rude to him as (he is) a minister. I talked to him nicely. He didn’t like it,” said Musa as quoted by Malaysiakini.
UMNO has postponed its party election again this year to avoid rocking the boat ahead of what perceived as the most challenging general election for the party in history.
Should UMNO party election has taken place, Najib and Hishamuddin will be both seen as an obstacle and a threat to deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin if he decides to take on Najib as UMNO president or retain his party position.
Meanwhile, PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar said UMNO delegates should take the opportunity to ask Najib to come clean on Deepak’s allegation.
“Najib must explain whether Deepak and Musa is part of Muhyiddin’s game to pressure him to quit, or is it the truth?” said the Pokok Sena member of parliament.
