KLANG: Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob yesterday denied that he is rejected by majority of Selangor Umno division chiefs.
The Selangor Umno Liaison Committee chairman claimed that the issue was deliberately played out by the Pakatan Harapan to undermine Selangor Umno especially during the Sungai Kandis state by-election campaign.
“This issue arose when we are campaigning for the Sungai Kandis by-election whereas my appointment was before the by-election. I also had a meeting with all the divisional leaders here and the issue on my appointment did not arise,” he told reporters at a programme with voters in Kampung Jawa here.
Also present was Wanita Umno chief Datuk Noraini Ahmad. — Bernama
