Don’t be hypocritical on unity, Umno’s Puad tells PPBM


Umno Supreme Council member Mohd Puad Zarkashi (left) has reminded PPBM information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan that it was his party that worked with DAP and PKR in the last elections.

PETALING JAYA: An Umno Supreme Council member has hit out at a PPBM leader for saying a split in Malay votes would only benefit DAP and PKR.

In a Facebook post, Mohd Puad Zarkashi pointed out that it was PPBM that worked with DAP and PKR in the last general election (GE14) to topple Umno.

“At the time, did they not think who would benefit or lose out?

“What did PPBM do when Tabung Haji, Felda and Khazanah assets were sold? Until today, the Perikatan Nasional-led government does not dare to set up a royal commission of inquiry into Tabung Haji. Why?”

He said PPBM’s courting of MPs to switch sides was also bad for unity.

After GE14, some 16 Umno MPs quit the party to join PPBM. Umno has repeatedly said it wants to take back the 16 seats in the next general election.

Puad was responding to PPBM information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan’s statement that it was important to protect Malay political unity and that if the community was divided, it was DAP and PKR that would benefit.

Over the weekend, the Umno general assembly decided against cooperation with PPBM in GE15.

Puad said PPBM should feel embarrassed talking about Malay unity when two of its former leaders set up splinter parties, in the form of Pejuang and MUDA, in a short span of time. - FMT
