ZAHID THE NEW DPM? Pro-Najib site pits Muhyiddin against 'brave' Zahid

ZAHID THE NEW DPM? Pro-Najib site pits Muhyiddin against 'brave' Zahid
PETALING JAYA - A pro-Umno website today criticised Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin for his apparent reluctance to defend Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak against attacks by former premier Mahathir Mohamad.
In an editorial posted today, MyKMU.net contrasted Muhyiddin’s silence with Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s “courage” in defending Najib.
“It’s a wonder why Muhyiddin is so careful when there’s no reason for him to take that attitude,” the anonymous writer said.
“After all, it should be easy to respond to Mahathir’s criticisms – which are nearly all lies – without hurting his feelings, if it’s true that Muhyiddin is trying to preserve Mahathir’s feelings.”
MyKMU said Najib himself had responded to Mahathir in a manner that avoided mentioning the former prime minister by name.
It said it was “not right” for Muhyiddin, as Najib’s deputy, to maintain his current attitude because it was affecting Umno’s and Barisan Nasional’s image. “That’s why this writer says Zahid’s attitude is better.”
The writer said it was not his intention to provoke Muhyiddin against anyone, but rather to persuade him to be more responsive to Mahathir’s “baseless” criticisms. He said it was necessary for Muhyiddin to speak up because Pakatan Rakyat was exploiting the situation on the Rompin and Permatang Pauh campaign trails. - FMT
