Don’t toy with Umno, LDP warned

LDP leaders deliberately turning a deaf ear to all the assistance given to them by Umno Sabah, says Sabah Puteri Umno.

(Free Malaysia Today) – Criticising Sabah Chief Minister Musa Aman is as good as criticising Umno and the Barisan Nasional (BN) as a whole, Puteri Umno Sabah said yesterday.

Sabah Umno Puteri chief Musliati Moslimin said its BN ally, the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), was behaving like an opposition, making its existence in the ruling coalition unjustifiable.

She said LDP was behaving as if the party no longer subscribed to the BN’s spirit of camaraderie and did not have the sense of belonging in the coalition.

She said no one had a right to openly demand for the resignation of the chief minister.

“They (LDP leaders) seem to have lost direction in their political struggle and also going against the BN’s concept and principle,” she said when commenting on statements made by LDP deputy president Senator Chin Su Phin and women’s wing chief Nancy Lim at the party’s Youth and Wanita joint congress in Sandakan over the weekend.

Musliati said asking Musa to resign showed a lack of respect for Umno and its president Najib Tun Razak who, she claimed, has full trust and confidence in Musa to lead the state.
