SHAH ALAM - Sembrong MP Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein has criticised the Unity Government’s decision for holding the National Convention at Dewan Merdeka, World Trade Centre last Saturday (May 14) dubbing it as "strange".

He also alluded to the notion that Umno’s top leadership had disrespected former party leaders by removing their portraits.

Stating that he understood the convention was important, he found it strange that it had to be held at the Umno headquarters.

The former Umno vice-president said these were some other issues that were expressed by the grassroots members of the party.

"I understand the convention is needed for the coalition comprising many parties to come together as one for the sake of the government and the nation's stability.

"But there are a few things that seem strange and need to be explained as to why the portraits of former Umno leaders who fought for the party and its struggles were removed," he said in a video posted on his Instagram account.

Former Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin also commented on the posting, saying: "Good statement".

The convention, the first of its kind, involved all parties in the Unity Government and was held at Dewan Merdeka, World Trade Centre KL on May 14.
