Don’t let me fight alone, Najib tells Umno members

KUALA LUMPUR: Former Umno president Najib Razak has urged party members to join him in his fight against injustices by the government and not let him carry out the struggle alone.
He said he was not asking the members to demonstrate, adding that they could take their fight to the social media instead.
“We must oppose the injustices of the government. Do not be afraid because we are on the right side.
“Do not let me fight the battle alone. I am not asking you to demonstrate on the streets … taking the fight to the social media is enough,” he said when opening the Gombak Umno delegates meeting today.
The former prime minister said that since Barisan Nasional lost in the 14th general election, he no longer had “cybertroopers” to defend his previous government’s policies.
“I have no cybertroopers now. I only have people who support what I do.
“If the people are with us, the future looks bright. What more, we have friends with ‘green shirts’ with us,” the Pekan MP said, referring to PAS.
He also said Umno was a mature party and the members should decide what kind of party leadership they wanted.
Malaysia Airlines
Later, speaking to reporters, Najib said Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAB) should be run by the government instead of “marrying” it with AirAsia.
He said the previous BN government had a turnaround plan for MAB.
“We had a recovery plan, the airline should be managed by the government,” he said when asked to comment on veteran journalist Kadir Jasin’s statement that AirAsia was seen as a successful aviation operator which could save Malaysia Airlines from “dying”.
Kadir had suggested on his Facebook post last Friday that “it is better for MAB to be ‘married’ to AirAsia than to wantonly allow the iconic brand to die”.
He also said AirAsia had an element similar to MAB – its long-haul airline, AirAsia X Bhd.
Speculation on the future of MAB has been rife since Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said in March that Malaysia was willing to sell the airline if there was a good offer for the company.
Mahathir, who is also the chairman of Khazanah Nasional, which owns MAB, said other options included closing or restructuring the airline. - FMT
