Who were Datuk Zahid and Datuk Adenan referring to?
Last month at a function in Sabah, when declaring that he would not resign, he had said that “ obviously one voice (Dr Mahathir) cannot be greater than the voices heard from the crowd here, in Kota Belud and the mandate given by the people" .
Why would Najib embark on a national road show to seek and show support if it is only Dr Mahathir who is calling for his resignation?
Obviously, Najib is facing pressures from more people from Umno, including his Cabinet Ministers!Yesterday, Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid said that anyone who had lost faith in the Prime Minister should resign and not wait to be sacked when he was asked to comment on the 1 MDB controversy.
“If there are ministers who lost faith in the PM, or are questioning his decisions, even more so when they have made open statements, the honourable thing to do is to step down.
“I do not think they should wait for the PM to sack them,” he was quoted as saying.
Yesterday, Sarawak chief minister Datuk Seri Adenan while declaring his support for Najib at the Sarawak for Najib event was quoted to say the following:
“He ( Najib) is being seiged left and right by those who are ungrateful, in the peninsula including those in Umno itself, who do not know how to be thankful, but only know how to stab in the back. We in Sarawak are sincere. If we support you, we say so”.
From the remarks made by Zahid and Adenan, it is obvious that Mahathir is not the only Umno voice that Najib has been worried about.
Since Zahid is courageous enough to say that Ministers who have lost faith in the Prime Minister should resign honarnbaly, and given the fact that no Minister has given any indication of resigning, is Zahid prepared to reveal who he was referring to?
Was he referring to Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin? Or Rural and regional development Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal? Or both?
Is Adenan prepared to reveal who in Umno are stabbing Najib in the back?
