A news portal reported recently that a school in Putrajaya flew Umno flags and made Umno-themed edibles for an event. — Picture by Yusof Mat IsaThere is no issue with the usage of Umno flags in an event at a primary school in Putrajaya, Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said today.

The Umno supreme council member was quoted by national newswire Bernama as saying that the event featuring Umno flags in Sekolah Kebangsaan Presint 14 was not political in nature and just a homage to the political parties that helped to achieve independence for Malaysia.

“Our country is independent because of Umno’s struggle that was aided by MCA and MIC. This can be seen when Tunku Abdul Rahman, who was Umno president at that time, visited London to gain independence,” Mahdzir said today.

The minister added that independence day was being politicised by the Opposition.

News portal Malaysiakini reported recently that the school in Putrajaya flew Umno flags and even made Umno-themed edibles for the event.

The event was brushed off by the principal and Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor — who officiated the event — as a normal occurrence.

  1. BN must be confused over which is the dominant party in Pakatan Harapan, said Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

    In a blog post today, the former prime minister said while Umno leaders, such as information chief Annuar Musa, claimed that DAP was dominating the opposition pact, MCA, however, had accused DAP leader Lim Kit Siang of selling himself to Bersatu.

    “So, BN must decide who bought who, whether Kit Siang has bought me or I have bought Kit Siang ,” he said on chedet.cc.

    Dr Mahathir also chided Annuar for not responding to the opposition’s questions on the RM2.6 billion in Prime Minister Najib Razak’s account.

    • Logic and coherence are no longer valid in the new Umno/BN regime. In order to get mass appeal, one must use emotion, propaganda, fear and stupid arguments to convince the uneducated Rakyat.

  3. It’s a pity our PM the MO1 and Almighty powerful Cash King still do not know civil servants are paid with taxpayers’ money and they work for the people not for a party’s corrupted leader who can be kicked out anytime by the very civil servants and MPs.

    • Melayu mudah lupa indeed.

      The entire fleet of UMNO’s leaders has now been overwhelmed with and consumed by ‘dedak’ that they have forgotten the deeds of their own leaders who fought tooth and nail that brought them what they are today. Annuar Musa as UMNO’s Information Chief is now making a mockery out of DrMahathir’s effort in unifying the people of this country which has been so shamelessly divided through race and religious issues propogated through UMNO’s mass media. Making a tasteless claim of Mahathir now working under the directions of LKS will not bring Annuar or UMNO any credit as the party members know that he is denouncing and shaming their own party head who brought them glory and respect.

  5. The morons in UMNO Baru should create history by having the president of either MCA, Gerakan and MIC to be the first non Malay DPM .
