Umno purge will silence reformists in party, says KJ
PETALING JAYA: The purge being carried out by Umno will silence reformists in the party, warns Khairy Jamaluddin.
The former Umno Youth chief, who was recently sacked from the party, said reformists would be hesitant to speak up as they would fear the repercussions.
“If they are too vocal, they will end up like me,” he said in an interview with Astro Awani tonight.
Khairy, who was given the boot for breaching party discipline during the 15th general election, had openly criticised party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in the past.
