ISKANDAR PUTERI: Khairy Jamaluddin today exposed to the media that he still support and like Umno, but he cannot trust Umno the party President Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
“I have a trust issue with the president. I can’t trust this president,” the Minister of Science, Technology, and Innovation told reporters when visiting a proposed vaccination centre at the Iskandar Malaysia Studios in here today.
According to NST, Kairy, who is also the Coordinating Minister for the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (NIP), said he no longer trust Zahid for several reasons:
First, last October, when Zahid, the Umno president submitted a letter to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, stating that all Umno members of parliament are supporting PKR’s Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to become the next Prime Minister.
Secondly, “the recording of the conversation between the president and the opposition leader (Anwar), which he (Zahid) first denied and wanted to lodge a police report, only to later admit that it was genuine,” said Rembau member of Parliament, Khairy.
“I am still loyal to Umno so let me do my job, namely the vaccination programme. This is a question of people’s lives so, as long as there is no vote, let me do my job,” he said.
