Dr M: Leaders mustn’t take credit for Umno’s success

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 10 — Umno’s successes are attributable to the party and not its leaders, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today.

The former prime minister, who was mobbed by supporters and reporters upon exiting Dewan Merdeka where the party is holding its general assembly, said Umno’s achievements were the results of efforts by the entire party rather than individuals.

“Umno is successful, but do not take credit for Umno’s success as your own success. I have never taken credit for Umno’s success,” he said.

Dr Mahathir was surrounded by supporters who sang “Inilah Barisan Kita”, as he was escorted out by his bodyguards.
