Hisham: It was not a threat

MARAN: Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said his statement on what Gerakan Youth deputy chief S. Paranjothy said was not a threat.

“I was not threatening anyone nor being emotional,” he told reporters after taking a look at the flood situation here yesterday.

He was commenting on the remark by Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon who said that Hishammuddin should not have threatened the party by giving it an ultimatum to clarify matters following a statement made by Paranjothy on the social issues of Indians in the country.

Hishammuddin had earlier expressed regret over the remark made by Paranjothy, and demanded that Gerakan explain itself.

He said there were people, especially the Opposition, who would take advantage of the issue.

Hishammuddin added that Umno Youth would not hesitate to suspend any member if he had been found to have made statements which could hurt the feelings of other Barisan Nasional component parties.

Meanwhile, Paranjothy said he would wait for the outcome of the party’s disciplinary committee’s meeting on the statement he made before deciding on the next course of action.
