Abdullah: Umno is not a bully

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said, “Umno is not a ‘bully’ party, there is no such thing as bully, we are all friends.”

Abdullah said in reply to a point raised by outgoing MCA president Ong Ka Ting in the 55th MCA General Assembly. “

If that is our way (being a bully), many component parties would have left BN by now.”

“People say Umno is a party that likes to bully. I actually have no idea how to bully people,” the BN chairman said when opening the 55th MCA General Assembly.

“This is the strategy used by the opposition to destabilize BN. The issue of Umno bullying components does not start from component parties.

“There is no such thing as bullying. Ask these people in the front,” the Umno president said referring to the MCA leaders on stage.

“If that is our way, a lot of components would have left. You think Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting or Tan Sri Koh Tsu Koon want to be bullied?” he said, referring to the MCA and Gerakan presidents respectively.

“Ong is not a weak leader. He is strong and effective. Do not have the impression after he retires that he was a weak leader,” he added.

The prime minister also accused Hindraf of being a group that sought to discredit the MIC and its president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

“That is their work, to give rise to dissatisfaction with our leaders.”
