PM describes a former national leader as ‘quarrelsome’


(Bernama) – Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today described a former national leader who served for 22 years as quarrelsome.

Najib, who is also the Umno president, said the leader often criticised former and present leaders as being incorrect in whatever they did.

“Some people have said that Malaysia is a failed nation, what more when this is said by a former leader whom we praised all this while. Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob and I were among the loyal supporters for 22 years.

“We defended him, but today he is prepared to sit together with the opposition. We all understand that this quarrelsome person will always look for someone to quarrel with.

“First, it was with Tunku Abdul Rahman (whom he said) was wrong, Tun Hussein Onn…was wrong, Tun Musa Hitam…was wrong, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi..was wrong and the latest, the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Almarhum Sultan Iskandar was also wrong,” he said when opening the Cameron Highlands UMNO divisional delegates meeting, here today.
