Deputy Umno president aspirant and also internantional Trade and Industry Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin was unhappy over Datuk Zaid Ibrahim presence at Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s
national congress in Shah Alam yesterday.
Muhyiddin, who is also International Trade and Industry Minister, said Zaid’s presence at the congress yesterday was not the first time he had attended a gathering by the opposition and this proved his disloyalty to Umno reported Bernama.
“It doesn’t make sense that he attended a gathering by the opposition. This (Zaid’s presence) is seen as giving moral support to the opposition.
“He must explain why he went to the congress. He has to be responsible for his actions,” he told reporters during a meeting with editors-in-chief and bureau chiefs of national and local media in Sabah here, Sunday.
Zaid also said his presence at the congress showed that he was still interested in politics and did not expect to be sacked from Umno.
