Malaysiakini reported today that UMNO did have a muzakarah (discussions) with PAS on a possibility of a merger in Selangor so that UMNO through BN and PAS could control the Selangor State government while UMNO had offered the post of Menteri Besar to PAS. But since PAS had smelt a 'threat', this meeting failed. The details of this meeting was reconfirmed by former Selangor Menteri Besar and UMNO Supreme Council member, Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo. Now, UMNO seems to use this 'casual meeting' to create a rift between the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) partners by claiming that PAS is going to break-up from PR.
UMNO President and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi revealed on Sunday that UMNO had held three talks with PAS leaders to discuss matters pertaining to Islam and the Malays but this seem to be a cover-up on the embarrassment in their failed merger talks and now seem to be using this vital information to create a rift between their PR partners.
Just taking a closer look, one would realise that UMNO dominates BN and what UMNO says only goes. Even MCA or MIC (big brothers of BN together with UMNO) are unable to question UMNO on any of their actions although BN claims every coalition partner has a equal say and rights.
The time has come for Malaysians to discard UMNO or BN by toppling them, so that Malaysians can live in peace and harmony among one another and have a prosperous future ahead.
