Will Abdullah bump into Mahathir in Nekkei Conference?

TUN Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he will continue his efforts to "cure" Umno even though he has quit the party.

He claimed the party was now concentrated on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's "struggles, no longer that of Umno".

"Those not loyal to Abdullah are deemed disloyal to the party," he said.

The former prime minister and party president was commenting on the barrage of criticism against his political ploy of leaving Umno to force Abdullah from office.

"Some people don't understand... because you go against the president, that doesn't mean you are going against the party," he told Malaysian newsmen here where he is attending the Nikkei Conference.
