ALOR STAR: Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob was left speechless at a dinner meeting after several leaders started questioning him on his call for Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir to step down as Sepang International Circuit (SIC) chairman.
The youths, most of them Umno and Belia 4B members, were at a meeting held in Sungai Petani on Friday night.
Ismail had said that it was only proper that Mohkzani relinquished his post, as he was no longer an Umno member.
Jalan Badlishah Umno Youth branch chief Ridzuan Omar questioned Ismail’s authority for making such a call.
“Who are you (Ismail) to ask Datuk Mokhzani to step down? We, the 4B Youth members, had benefited tremendously from the motoring activities mooted by Datuk Mokhzani.
“What have you (Ismail) done for the youth? We have hardly heard your name until two months ago,” he said.
Umno Kulim Hi-Tech branch Youth chief Faizal Mansor questioned why national Umno leaders were quick to jump every time former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his son Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz made hard-hitting statements.
“Why don’t you all listen to their constructive criticism?” he said.
Ismail left the dinner without responding to the questions. [ forwarded by ROZAN – AMK Batu ]
