UMNO youth man turns up at Najib residence to express support and discuss party status

Dato’ Nur Aliff Mohammad Tafid came to Najib’s home on Jalan Langgak Duta this afternoon to discuss the status of UMNO.

The Bandar Bukit Jalil Umno division chief was also there to express his support for the former premier.

KUALA LUMPUR: Despite the ongoing police search, a local Umno Youth leader turned up at Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s house today to seek clarification from the latter over the party’s legal status.

Bandar Bukit Jalil Umno division chief Datuk Nur Aliff Mohammad Tafid came to Najib’s home on Jalan Langgak Duta this afternoon, after hearing rumours that the party could be made illegal soon.

Nur Aliff said he was hoping to meet Najib to get the former PM’s views on his future as well as that of 2,000 Umno youth members in Bandar Bukit Jalil.

“This morning I heard Umno was going to be made illegal, but I don’t know if this is true or not,” Nur Aliff told reporters outside Najib’s home here today.

“We don’t want to leave the party. But I came here to get Datuk Seri Najib’s opinion on whether my members and I should stay in Umno or go our separate ways.

“At the same time, I also want to express my support for him.”

Nur Aliff said he and his members had already received offers to join other parties, but refused to specify the parties.

He said police had told him that he would not been able to meet the former premier now, as investigations were still ongoing.

“I heard the best time to see him would be during sahur,” Nur Aliff said.
