PUTRAJAYA — Sept. 21, 2018: Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad confirmed today that several Umno leaders had met him recently, adding that anyone is free to see him.
The chairman of Pakatan Harapan and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Pribumi) then sarcastically remarked thus: “They came to see me; I see everybody. After seeing me they see PAS.
“We are free, not like before. Before, if you see ‘wrong’ people, the income tax people will come after you,” he said after a meeting of the Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption.
Asked if former Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein had stated his desire to join Pribumi at a recent meeting with him, Mahathir said the matter was not discussed.
“He came to see (me), nothing about joining PPBM. He has his own ideas…. you’d better ask him.” — Bernama
