SHAH ALAM - Former Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman refuses to campaign for the party in the state polls that will be held on Aug 12 after it failed to respond to his appeal to lift the suspension of his membership until now.

According to a report by online news portal Free Malaysia Today (FMT), the former Pasir Salak MP claimed that he submitted four appeals against his six-year suspension, but it fell on deaf ears.

He added that he was not going to submit and appeal for a fifth time.

"Give me back my 'keris' that is my membership. Why is there no response on the suspension of my membership? If you want me to campaign, lift my suspension.

"How am I supposed to do my job if my hands and feet are tied?," Tajuddin was reported saying.

He said this when asked to comment on his preparations for the state elections campaign and on the status of his appeal against his suspension.

It was reported that previously, Tajuddin urged Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to reinstate his membership so he could help the party campaign in the state elections.

In October last year, Tajuddin was suspended from the party and was not chosen to defend his Pasir Salak seat in the 15th General Election (GE15).
