Umno infested with 'crocs and sharks'

Source : Malaysiakini

Former Umno vice-president Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah did not mince his words today in his all-out attack against the party leadership in his speech at his Gua Musang division's special meeting.
  • it has become a party of 'Malay fanatics' and that its leaders are corrupt
  • lack of commitment in Umno to defend the dignity and sovereignty of the Malay royal institution
  • Umno is seen as a party made up of ‘Malay fanatics’ who, for unknown reasons, like to brandish the keris when scolding other races
  • A party which is corrupt, infested with ‘buaya darat’ (land dwelling crocodiles) and ‘yu-yu laut’ (sharks) who have no qualms about sweeping up and swallowing projects and government contracts as well as the rights of the poor of all races
  • This image is hated by all races, not only the Malays
  • Why (did the Indians & Chinese supported PAS)? Have they been put under a spell or Islamicised by PAS people? No. They did it because they believe that PAS, based on Islamic principles, is fairer than Umno to non-Malays
