Najib vs Muhyiddin – UMNO trouble
UMNO sources tell me that Muhyiddin Yasin has struck a deal with his old foe and ex Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib aka Mike Tyson.
In the new equation Muhammad will throw his support behind Muhyiddin to ensure that Selangor does not cross over to the BN in the next elections.
That loss of the state for the second time will be attributed to Najib’s poor leadership, and the Shah Alam and Klang Hospitals will be at the centre of the whole issue.
The state of the Klang Hospital and the reluctance of the Ministry of Health and the Central Government to step in to provide the funds and take all remedial action to ensure the hospital in Klang is upgraded as recommended by the Hospitals authorities, and the stalled Shah Alam Hospital is completed as soon as possible to ease the terrible congestion in Klang GH , will be the central issues in exposing Najib’s inability to deal with big fish to put things right.
All information towards this end is being fed to PAS, PKR and the DAP by supporters of the two men. Muhammad in the meantime is marshaling his resources by gathering his supporters in Selangor UMNO to join him in this quest.
This will leave a huge opportunity for Muhammad to come back for the position of Deputy at the next UMNO General Assembly and most probably take on Hishamuddin Hussein whilst Muhyiddin will remove Najib or “very reluctantly stand against Najib.”
In the process Muhyiddin will endorse Muhammad as his running mate.
The gap in UMNO and the distrust amongst the leadership is getting wider. Whilst Sharizat has been given a lot of assurances from Najib, she is still wondering if this is only for him to buy time as other UMNO sources tell her she is to be sidelined at the next elections, she has become too big a baggage for Najib who is now fighting for political survival.
Whislt Najib is trying his best to assure the Indian and Chinese voters that he is making changes for the better, “others” and it is not very clear who these “others” are, are doing everything to destroy Najib’s credibility, and making him look bad in the eyes of both UMNO and the non Malays whose support he is desperately trying to garner.
The recent attack on members of a Hindu organisation who were to attend an ABU (anything but UMNO) meeting is said to have been arranged by persons who want Najib out.
In an immediate response, to try and mend the fences Najib came out with a statement asking Tamil educationist to come out with a blueprint on how to take Tamil schools forward. That is all there is to it, it is yet another government blueprint, a blueprint that will be left somewhere in the PM’s files when ulterior motives are met.
Najib seems to be staying clear off Mahathir Mohammed as the Proton issue hots up, and as the ex PM is tryign to “guide” him on how to deal with Sharizat, after all Sharizat is his (Mahathir’s) protege, and has now fallen out of favour and is a nuisance to Najib’s future plans.
The fall of Selangor is a foregone conclusion, it is said that some of the strongest BN seats are now very shakey, the Malays are fed up and with so much at stake, FELDA, corruption – which they now can see clearly took away funds that were supposed to uplift them and instead landed in the pockets of a few elite in UMNO.
If you go down to the ground and listen there is this talk of a huge PETRONAS scandal that is said to have placed billions in the pockets of one or at most two people. These billions will not be detected by any audit because it involves an oil field which no longer belongs to us, and the people of Sarawak are left empty because of this. How true this is, only time will tell. This talk has taken huge proportions in Selangor and it is reported that the news comes from within UMNO.
The PKR coalition are working overtime I am told to uncover this story, it has a lot to do with Najib’s ascendency to power that is all we managed to get. If there is a story and it is true, then the East will fall at the next General Elections.
There are scandals galore, the Scorpene issue will be surfaced with the whispers in UMNO getting louder by the day by the opposing factions it is not the opposition that is using it now it is the rival UMNO factions, why even now Sharizat supporters are askign what’s so big about “Cowgate” when Scorpene was bigger, if Najib could cover that and why can’t he cover this up as well.
Whilst Najib is in dire straits the ex PM – Mahathir Mohammed is wondering where he should park his son Mukhriz’ interests, if you notice Mukhriz has been rather quiet, very quiet for anyone’s liking, there is trouble brewing in the party, he has ambitions, his father has plans to nuture that ambition but where he parks himself in this controversy and this power struggle in UMNO will determine his future in the party and both him and his father know that and are worried sick on how to solve this power equation.
Muhyddin has no place in the equation and he knows it, Mahathir never liked the fellow anyway, his position as Deputy was because Mahathir decided to place him there and back him and even threaten Najib that Muhyddin would be President if Najib did not go for Badawi.
Once Najib took the position the young guard had moved in, it was time to begin the process of growing Mukhriz, a few stop gap personalities had to be put in place and the first was Muhyddin of course who would play a Ghaffar Baba type role, then Hishamuddin would come in to unseat him and Mukhriz would move for the Vice President’s slot as a measure towards Presidency.
Najib would be asked to make way for Hisham or face the possibility of an investigation and probable sacking by the opening of the Altantya Sharibu scandal, the Port Dickson khalwat case and a lot more of which Mahathir has a complete dossier will be used as threats to get Najib out.
Once Najib moves aside Hisham will take over and appoint Mukhriz his deputy just like Hussein Onn did Mahathir, and the stage will set for Mukhriz to close the curtain on Hishamuddin and take over the PM’s post.
If anyone for a moment thought UMNO was united they can forget it.
The United Malays National Organsiation is no more, it has long gone, it was deemed illegal and was closed down by the court.
The present day UMNO is not the UMNO of old it is UMNO Baru.
UMNO Bary is far from being Malay anymore, and it is far from united.
