Earlier at a press conference with the Malaysian Media, Dr Mahathir was asked why he was being disloyal to UMNO.
"If we look back at history, Tun Razak did not agree with Dato Onn Jaafar to open up UMNO to other races. To Tun Razak, his disagreement did not mean he was being disloyal to UMNO.
"The same goes when in 1969, the Alliance did not perform well in the elections and many criticised Tunku Abdul Rahman. Razak was clearly sympathetic towards his critics, including me.
"He also said that when Tengku Razaleigh, Tun Musa Hitam and Abdullah challenged him when he was UMNO president in 1987, he never accused them being disloyal.
Asked if he was willing to meet UMNO deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Dr Mahathir only had one question to ask najib.
"I want to ask him whether he is loyal to the part or president? I just want him to remind him of the one in Tunku cases where his father was clearly disloyal to the party leader.
"If Najib wants to say those who are not loyal to the he president is also against the party, i want to remind Najib of what his father did back then," he said.
p/s: People are jumping with ridiculous comments against Tun, but why they never care to think the reasons behind Tun's action.
