The tiff between Najib Abdul Razak and Lim Kit Siang has resumed, with the former premier inviting the DAP veteran to join Umno.
He even filled up Lim’s name in an Umno membership form and named himself as the proposer.
However, the former Umno president did not mention if he would push for the party to amend its constitution to admit non-bumiputera members.
Najib was responding to Lim’s statement earlier regarding Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi returning to lead the party after a protracted leave.
The DAP veteran had asked if Zahid would serve as a proxy for Najib.
Najib claimed that less than two months ago, Lim accused him of being the “grand mastermind” in Umno, but is now claiming otherwise.
Previously, Lim pulled out of the debate, citing how numerous quarters expressed concern that it would be used to stir up racial and religious sentiments.
