Netizens urge Muhyiddin to stay strong, urge former DPM to go on a roadshow.
PETALING JAYA: Muhyiddin Yassin, who was earlier this evening suspended as Umno’s deputy president, should go on a nationwide roadshow and reveal everything about the RM2.6 billion donation.
This was among the flurry of comments that flooded Twitter after news about the former deputy prime minister hit the web.
“Feel free to speak your own mind TS (Tan Sri) since you’ve just being rested,” Twitter user Naqiuddin Nazrin (@naqiuddinazrin) said, alluding to the controversy surrounding the RM2.6 billion banked into Prime Minister Najib Razak’s personal account.
Usop ([email protected]) wondered if the decision to suspend Muhyiddin would spell Umno’s downfall, especially since it came right after Mukhriz Mahathir was removed as the Kedah Menteri Besar earlier this month.
Amshar Aziz (@Amshar_Aziz) said being sacked for questioning a leader was ridiculous.
“For someone to be fired just because he questions the leader is ludicrous. Mukhriz, Muhyiddin and Shafie Afdal were fired for questioning.”
Meanwhile, Mr Saufi (@SaufiBoy) and Ariff (@ariffzani) told Muhyiddin to stay strong as the truth would be revealed one day.
However, one Muhd Shamil said the former minister’s suspension was the nail in the coffin for Muhyiddin’s political career.
“TS Muhyiddin is not and never was a fighter, he is the Abdullah Badawi (former prime minister) kind of politician, so I guess this is the end of his political career.”
The Umno Supreme Council suspended Muhyiddin from the party with immediate effect until the next party elections in 2018, for failing to carry out his responsibilities as a deputy president.
Vice-President Ahmad Zahid Hamidi will now take over the reins as the party’s number two.
