In January, Abdul Kadir was reported to have claimed that the BN gave between RM200 to RM1,000 to buy votes in the last general election.
This week, Abdul Kadir, who is also Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah) deputy president, stood by his allegations but said the vote-buying did not apply to his former constituency in Kedah.
(The frist time I met Kadir was on a bus ride from Jalan Ipon (Million Settlement) in the mid-60s and then much later on when he officiated at the opening of an outlet at the new Bintang Walk)
just wondering what is given and taken.
Abdul Kadir should think before making any statement which can affect the image and good name of Umno, said party secretary-general, Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
(I knew Tengku Adnan, also in the mid-60s when he was just a carpet salesman for Carpet International. We did things together I tell you. We lost touch when he met Vincent Tan. We met up again but briefly during the by-elections at Kuala Terengganu. He tried his darndest to remember me. I don’t blame him. I was no more the teacher he was used to.)
Tengku Adnan, who is Putrajaya member of parliament, stressed that the BN and Umno never had and need not pay money for votes whether during party polls or general elections.
SO WHAT WAS UMNO’S DECISION TO DISALLOW ISA SAMAD AND ALI RUSTAM FROM STANDING FOR UMNO ELECTIONS?
Can or not think before you make any statement?
