Umno's disciplinary board may act against Abdul Kadir

The Umno's disciplinary board is in the process of gathering evidence on alleged negative statements made by veteran leader Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir for further action by the party's supreme council.

NONEIn January, Abdul Kadir (right) 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.
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.

He said the ex-information minister was still the Kulim-Bandar Baharu Umno division treasurer and should exercise caution when making statements.

"I hope Abdul Kadir will think first before saying something. Don't just follow your heart's desire. Maybe he is unhappy with something.

“He can talk to us, discuss with us. Don't just follow your heart and lash out," he told reporters after opening the Putrajaya Parliament Family Day, Putrajaya, today.

"Why doesn't he resign first if he doesn't feel Umno is right?"

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.

He said the people were wise enough to pick people's representatives and government, during every general election, to head the country.
