Najib Slams Musa For Holding Press Conference Against UMNO

Kuala Lumpur: Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak slammed former Barisan Nasional (BN) secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa for making the various allegations during his yesterday’s press conference.

According to the Chairman of the BN Advisory Board, Annuar Musa’s action only aggravated the situation.

Writing on Facebook, the former Prime Minister said that Musa should not have held a press conference to escalate the tension among the various people of the party.

“UMNO is the party that puts the voice of the grassroots in the most important place. If you are not satisfied because you have to be fired or do not agree with the voices of the grassroots and almost the entire UMNO Division Head who rejects PPBM, do not hold a special press conference” he wrote.

If there is no UMNO root, even those who jump will not succeed to be representatives of the People to be collected by PPBM, he further said in his post.

At the same time, the Pekan Member of Parliament also questioned Musa’s action, which allegedly accused UMNO of collaborating with DAP.

“Why does UMNO want to work with DAP if the majority of the grassroots and the Division Head reject DAP ?,” he added.

Earlier, Musa had claimed that UMNO and DAP are working together to form the new government.
