Tajuddin moots Umno-PAS pact as 'race, religion under threat'

Tajuddin Abdul Rahman is confident that if Umno and PAS joined hands to form a new political bloc, it would be a formidable opponent to Pakatan Harapan.
The Umno supreme council member said while the two parties have different political approaches, there were similarities between them with regard to championing the rights of the Malays and Islam.
According to a Sinar Harian report, Tajudddin said this collaboration would present a strong challenge to the Harapan government and its supporters, whom he claimed were now making demands which insulted the race and religion.
“The issues and demands made in the last week or two threaten the survival of Islam. This is dangerous for us.
“I think even those in PAS have realised, the grassroots are willing to cooperate. If we want to continue showing our respective greatness, we won't be able to face our foe's attack,” he added.
The Pasir Salak MP was speaking to reporters after chairing a Umno division meeting in his constituency in Perak last night.
Tajuddin said based on the seats won by both Umno and PAS in the 14th general election, the two parties can become a strong coalition.
Meanwhile, the veteran politician also announced that he would be contesting one of the top Umno posts in the coming party polls.

Tajuddin, who has been an Umno member for more than four decades, is hoping that his experience would contribute to reviving the party.
The former deputy minister said he would reveal which post he would be contesting at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur on June. -Mkini
