Dr M calls Umno Youth corrupt for electing Khairy

Dr M, written on his blog post, said that he did not attend the opening of the Umno general assembly because Umno Youth openly sanctioned money politics by electing Khairy.

"They picked as their leader someone who was found guilty of using money and other inducements in his effort to get elected as the head of Umno Youth…Never before has a person who has been acknowledged as corrupt by the party disciplinary board, by the party and the public being elected and hailed as the leader.

"Pemuda has sullied the image of the party and the Malays. It appears that money is more important than one's race and country, '' said the former party president, who wondered whether the rest of Malaysia would accept a leader like Khairy.

Dr Mahathir also added an element of conspiracy into the youth elections, questioning why it took six hours to count 790 votes.

"Didn't they know how to count? Or was there an attempt to ensure victory for the son-in-law of the Prime Minister?


KENAPA SAYA TIDAK HADIR


1. Ramai kenalan saya yang fikir saya tidak hadir pembukaan mesyuarat Perhimpunan Agung UMNO kerana anak saya Mukhriz kalah pertandingan Ketua Pemuda.

2. Memanglah saya terasa sedih kerananya.

3. Tetapi sebab yang sebenar saya tidak hadir ialah oleh kerana Pemuda UMNO secara langsung dan terbuka merestui politik rasuah.

4. Mereka memilih sebagai ketua mereka seorang yang telah didapati bersalah menggunakan wang dan sogokan dalam usahanya untuk dipilih sebagai Ketua Pemuda. Samada dia dibenar bertanding atau tidak, tidak menidakkan dianya adalah perasuah.

5. Hukuman yang dijatuhkan kepada orang ini tidak setimpal dan adil kerana orang lain yang didapati bersalah sama sepertinya tidak dibenar bertanding.

6. Tidak pernah terjadi orang yang dikenali dan diakui umum sebagai perasuah oleh Lembaga Disiplin, oleh parti dan oleh orang ramai dipilih dan dijunjung tinggi sebagai ketua. Tetapi inilah yang dilakukan oleh Pemuda UMNO yang dahulu terkenal sebagai barisan hadapan dalam perjuangan UMNO.

7. Pemuda telah merosakkan imej UMNO dan imej orang Melayu sendiri. Rupa-rupanya duit lebih utama daripada bangsa dan negara. Apakah rakyat akan terima dipimpin oleh tokoh rasuah yang terkenal? Perbuatan merestui rasuah adalah satu pengkhianatan kepada bangsa Melayu dan negara Malaysia.

8. Juga saya hairan kenapa untuk mengira hanya 790 undi mengambil masa lebih dari enam jam?

9. Apakah pengira undi tidak tahu kira? Atau apakah sesuatu sudah diusahakan untuk menjayakan menantu Perdana Menteri. Ini menjadi soalan bukan daripada saya seorang tetapi oleh semua orang ramai. Tak usahlah Perdana Menteri bercakap berkenaan dengan menolak rasuah kerana menantu yang perasuah diberi keistimewaan luar biasa.

10. Ini juga menghakiskan lagi kepercayaan rakyat kepada UMNO.

11. Inilah sebab-sebabnya saya tidak hadir. Saya rasa diri saya akan tercemar jika saya berada dalam majlis yang disertai oleh orang yang mendukung amalan rasuah.

Meanwhile, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said he is happy with Khairy Jamaluddin's election as the new Umno Youth chief, saying the Rembau member of Parliament had worked hard for the victory.

"He (Khairy) worked very hard, he really worked very hard, that is the truth, I know... because when I went to see my grandchildren and asked Nori (Abdullah's daughter) where is Khairy, she said he had gone campaigning and meeting the Umno Youth.

"So I said, he must be working very hard and she herself agreed that he did work hard... everyday going around.

"I think he deserves it after working so hard,"

On the other hand, Khairy Jamaluddin, the Son in law is no stranger to controversy and has become used to it. And now that he has been elected to Umno Youth's highest position, the detractors are making sure he is kept on his toes.

He has much to do to clear his name over the money politics controversy surrounding the contest for the wing’s top post.

After all, the disciplinary board found him guilty of involvement in money politics by association, but decided to just issue him a warning.

Asked to comment on allegations of money politics being leveled against him, Khairy said: "It’s just the usual stuff, usual expression of views during the debates."

"I’m used to it, this is my ….I can’t remember how many general assemblies I have been to," he said.

"It does not unfazed me at all; it’s something I have to deal with. I’ve been having to deal with this for quite a while now, so I just continue with my work and continue with the by-elections that are coming up where I can reach out to more party members and the public as well."
