PETALING JAYA: DAP’s Zaid Ibrahim has told Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Yunos to go ahead and burn more of his photos.
Speaking to FMT, the former de facto law minister said he expected as much from Sungai Besar Umno division chief Jamal Yunos, adding that all Umno leaders were the same.
“They want attention and publicity. They do not know how to beat Pakatan Harapan in Selangor so they have these gimmicks.
“They have about three to four days left, they should do more. They can burn more photos, it is okay,” Zaid said, adding that he did not want to comment further.
Today, two life-sized effigies of Zaid were burnt in front of the entrance of the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) by a group led by Jamal.
Jamal held a press conference outside the Umno headquarters here to hit out at Zaid over the latter’s “advice” to the Selangor sultan on Twitter.
Zaid had tweeted: “The Selangor sultan should be careful with his words. No one is immune when the country burns.”
Zaid was apparently referring to an interview the sultan gave The Star in which the ruler claimed PPBM chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s political agenda was motivated by “deep hatred” and that “his anger will burn the whole country”.
