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

Dr M: The baffling thing is why Umno leaders so afraid of this kid

Following report appeared on Malaysiakini today. Below are some excerpts , you can read the full text here.
  • Umno was thrashed in the general election because of poor selection of candidates by ‘Sultan’ Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and ‘Kid’ Khairy Jamaluddin
  • Umno has been turned into a “family party” where power is concentrated in the hands of Abdullah and his son-in-law.
  • “Of course, everyone knows that the list of candidates is chosen and submitted to 'Sultan' Abdullah (Ahmad Badawi) by state leaders but once it reached to the party president, somebody else takes over,” he said.
  • Saying that this nexus is destroying Umno, Mahathir told his audience with trademark sarcasm: “But this is just a rumour, don’t listen to my bad mouth!”
  • “The baffling thing is why Umno leaders so afraid of this kid. The ministers should have no problem to tenyeh (smash) this kid, but it seems that they are too afraid and I don’t know why,” Mahathir said.
  • “This leader is the country’s only prime minister to ever come from an opposition state (Penang)...,” said Mahathir.

MIC branch dissolved, members become PAS supporters

News from The Star

TAIPING: The Kampung Jebong MIC branch in Simpang here was officially dissolved when 110 of its members quit the party to become members of "Kelab Penyokong PAS" (PAS Supporters Club).
Branch chairman M. Muninathan, accompanied by committee members, submitted their application forms to Bukit Gantang MP Roslan Shaharom at a village temple here on Saturday night.
Roslan said the welfare of the former MIC branch members and members of the Indian community would be taken care of.
"We will take care of you because any problems affecting the Indian community will also affect members of the other communities," he said.
Roslan said he was indebted to the Indian community here as more than 95% of Indian voters within the Bukit Gantang parliamentary constituency had voted for him in the recently-concluded general election.
He said members of the community had every reason to rejoice as two of the three state seats in the constituency had been won by Barisan Rakyat, and the victors -- Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu (Changkat Jering) and Tai Sing Ng (Kuala Sepetang) -- had been appointed exco members of the new Perak state government.
