Another simple example for "Perintah Tuanku, patik junjung"?.

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 9 (Bernama) -- Umno Information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Taib Wednesday called on all quarters to allow Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to administer the country in his own way.

He said the people should not listen to incorrect information being disseminated about the Prime Minister's administration as this would only frustrate national development efforts.

"I hope the people will continue to extend their support to the current administration because the accusations being circulated are only aimed at undermining the Prime Minister's leadership," he told reporters after opening a seminar on the Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) for senior officers of the Rubber Industry Smallholders Development Authority (Risda), here.

Muhammad also urged these quarters, whom he clarified to be the people close to former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to cease instigating Dr Mahathir by giving him incorrect information about Abdullah.

"Tun (Dr Mahathir) is a dynamic leader who has been successful in developing the country. Now, allow Datuk Seri Abdullah to develop the country in his own way," he said.

Muhammad said the situation became worse when the incorrect information was conveyed by Dr Mahathir to the people at the functions that he attended.

"Although the statement is incorrect, it can upset the national development process because it (the statement) is made by Tun."

Muhammad also urged Umno members nationwide to ignore the allegations made by irresponsible people against the Prime Minister and focus instead on efforts to strengthen solidarity in the party.
