Umno’s action of accepting those accused of corruption will tarnish the party’s image, former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.
However, the two assemblymen – Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (Behrang) and Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu (Changkat Jering) – have not announced that they would join Umno, only that they were leaving PKR to become Independent members of the Perak State Assembly.
Dr Mahathir: “Is Umno so desperate?”
Dr Mahathir, in the posting on his blog, asked if Umno was so desperate that the party could not wait for the court to decide on the charges against the two before accepting them.
