SMILING JOYOUSLY, EX MB KHALID IBRAHIM ATTENDS UMNO MEET: BUT AIDE QUICK TO SAY ‘HE WAS INVITED TO GIVE INSIGHTS, NOT JOIN UMNO’

FORMER Selangor menteri besar Khalid Ibrahim made an appearance at the opening of the Selangor Umno convention today.

However, Khalid’s aide told The Malaysian Insight that the former PKR leader was not joining Umno.

“He was only invited to give insights on the event. He is not here to join Umno,” Khalid’s aide, Mustapha Mohd Talib, said at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC).

The event is said to be closed-door briefing on Umno’s strategy to wrest Selangor from the Pakatan Harapan opposition bloc, and Khalid and another former menteri besar, Muhammad Muhd Taib, are believed to be key figures in this effort.

Khalid was seen walking with Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi into the hall.
