Umno And The Leadership Never Shamed Dr Mahathir

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 21 (Bernama) -- Umno Thursday denied that the party and its leadership had lately taken action to put former Umno president Dr Mahathir Mohamad to shame as alleged by PAS.

Umno information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhamad Taib said party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had never been involved in any action which paved the way for Dr Mahathir to be put to shame.

"Some quarters have tried to exploit Dr Mahathir's failure to be elected as a Kubang Pasu delegate at the party's general assembly by all sorts of negative allegations," he said when commenting on the statement by PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang Wednesday that Dr Mahathir was shamed in several ways.

He said Umno believed that Dr Mahathir had a more important role to play in view of his vast experience and should not be just a delegate to the general assembly.

Muhammad said the PAS allegation was hypocritical because PAS itself had often tried to ridicule Dr Mahathir by criticising all development efforts he had made.
