Umno supreme council member Lokman Noor Adam tonight lashed out at Khairy Jamaluddin and revealed what went on behind the scenes shortly after BN conceded defeat in the 14th general election.
Lokman claimed that Khairy, who was the Umno Youth chief at the time, had gone to party president Najib Abdul Razak’s house on the same night to demand his resignation.
He added that if it were not for Khairy’s pressure, BN could have continued on as a “caretaker government” for another three months despite losing the general election, while Najib worked to form an alliance with other parties.
“If Najib did not have such a foolish and hasty Youth chief, it would not have been impossible for him to remain as the chairperson of BN which still had the most seats (under one name) and continue on as a caretaker government for another three months after May 9.
“In those three months, Najib might have succeeded in convincing other parties to form a unity government and Khairy might still have remained as the youth and sports minister – instead of a child who likes to take selfies in bathtubs,” he said in a statement
