SERI MANJUNG – Former Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is not involved in the plot to topple the government, said UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
The deputy prime minister said he had to reveal the matter as he and Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir were close with the UMNO deputy president.
“I have to reveal this in Lumut because personally I and Zambry are close with Tan Sri Muhyiddin.
“We (Ahmad Zahid dan Zambry) used to fall together (in politics). We understand how it feels, so we don’t step or stamp on people who fall,” he said when opening the Lumut UMNO divisional delegates meeting here tonight.
Also present were Zambry, who is Perak UMNO liaison committee chairman and Lumut UMNO division leader and Perak UMNO liaison secretary Datuk Saarani Mohammad. – BERNAMA
