It is Definitely Our Business

I wholeheartedly supported my colleagues in PKR and PAS for lodging a report against DAR in MACC.

And I totally disagree with Kota Melaka Umno Youth's banners with the words “PKR Jangan Ganggu Tepi Kain Orang (PKR Stay Out Of Other People’s Business)” as the Ketua Menteri position is definitely the people's business and not exclusive only to UMNO.

Yes he was barred from contesting the Deputy Presidency as he is found guilty by the Disciplinary Board and that is an UMNO matter BUT as the law is no respector of anybody and that there is an element of corruption then he should be investigated by the police or MACC and until he is cleared by the police or MACC, DAR should step down as Ketua Menteri Melaka.

Shouting match at state MACC office (Taken from the Star)

MALACCA: Umno and opposition youth members faced off outside the state Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) office after a group from PKR and PAS arrived to lodge a report against Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.

Six from the group of 20, including complainant Hairiz Nordin, 26, entered the office at noon yesterday to lodge a report against the Umno vice-president for alleged involvement in money politics as the others waited outside.

Thirty minutes later, some 30 youths from Kota Melaka Umno Youth arrived and unfurled Barisan Nasional banners with the words “PKR Jangan Ganggu Tepi Kain Orang (PKR Stay Out Of Other People’s Business)”.

A shouting match ensued between the two groups with more Umno Youth members arriving later.

The situation grew tense with both sides hurling abuse at each other, prompting intervention by about 20 policemen from the Melaka Tengah station, who kept the groups apart until the PKR and PAS youth members exited the building about an hour later.

The groups then dispersed without any untoward incident.

When met later, Hairiz called on the MACC to investigate Mohd Ali based on the findings of the Umno disciplinary board and to determine if he had used public funds during his party election campaign.

He added that the chief minister should relinquish his post if found to have done so.

Meanwhile, Kota Melaka Umno Youth vice-chief Shadan Othman issued a warning to the Opposition not to involve itself in Umno matters.
