Najib repeated his claim that he and the youth wing were the ones who made UMNO Baru to exist with great success in 1988. It was UMNO youth wing under his leadership’s contribution that UMNO Baru successfully formed which brought all the UMNO members to migrate to UMNO that was organized by Dr Mahathir Mohammed. He claims that without him and the youth wing the new party would have been a still born party. At that point of time (1988) the original UMNO was outlawed by the high court presided by judge Harun Hashim.
Najib was speaking at a function to commemorate his 40 years involvement in politics in Kuala Lumpur yesterday. Now the embattled PM is resting his laurels on his involvements and contributions in the formation of the UMNO Baru to an extent that he should be showered with praises and should just close all eyes to all his mischiefs to the nation. Najib is implying that his contribution to the successful formation of UMNO Baru in place of the outlawed UMNO (lama) justifies his act to do to anything he pleases to the country.
Najib wants everybody to freely allow him to take the power mandated to him as personal business capital for him to build unlimited personal wealth for his family and close exclusive buddies and associates including Jho Lo and his likes. He is claiming to legitimize and legalize his wrong doings in return for his important role in the formation of this illegitimate UMNO.
Mahathir should give Najib a big thank you for his role to help the formation of UMNO Baru but Mahathir still has his commitment to save the nation from being devastated by this man.
After all Najib has received high dividend for his role to help Dr Mahathir in forming UMNO Baru. He has become the PM. He has been perceived to gain huge ‘duit luar’ while he’s in power. Najib must remember that there were hundreds of thousand other Malays and leaders who helped Mahathir in forming UMNO Baru and they have got nothing out of it. Ghaffar Baba, Anwar Ibrahim and many other more important figures that played more important role than you did Mr PM. Mahathir gave Najib much more favors than Najib’s contribution to Dr Mahathir. Or else he wouldn’t have been the PM which most Malaysians realize that he does not at all deserve to be one (PM).
