PETALING JAYA: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said he still remembers the warning Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad gave him about “not throwing a stone at a glasshouse.”
He said he was then the Umno Youth chief and the glasshouse depicted Umno while Dr Mahathir had referred to the stone as criticisms he (Ahmad Zahid) had made against the party.
“But now Dr Mahathir is the one using a bigger stone to throw at the glasshouse not only to destroy the ‘walls’ but to totally destroy the whole glasshouse.
“Will it not be better if a leader like Dr Mahathir use a better method to criticise the leadership and not the way of the Opposition?
“The Opposition will use his criticisms to destroy Umno, as Dr Mahathir is wrecking Umno from the inside while the Opposition is trying to destroy it from the outside,” he said.
