ALOR SETAR – A senior Kedah Wanita UMNO leader described the political situation in Kedah as ‘a storm in a cup’ created by those seeking attention.
Baling Wanita UMNO division chief Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim said the Kedah UMNO leadership is under the control of Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir.
“Demanding others to quit is an old game. Actually those who disagree should quit and not demand others to quit,” she told reporters after the launch of ‘Skuad Annur’ of Kedah Wanita UMNO’s Religious Affairs Bureau here, today.
Mashitah said full support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Mukhriz is crucial as they are influential figures at national and state level.
“We fully support Mukhriz because he is very special. I think the Prime Minister knows this,” she added.
Bukit Lada State Assemblyman Datuk Ahmad Lebai Sudin had urged Mukhriz, who is also Kedah UMNO chairman, to quit as Kedah Menteri Besar if he failed to voice support for Najib. – BERNAMA
