SUBANG, Oct 5— Selangor Umno chief Tan Sri Noh Omar today repeated his party’s denial of any involvement in rumoured defections of eight Pakatan Harapan (PH) state assemblymen to Umno.
Former Selangor mentri besar Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib’s already denied this last week, after a news portal alleged that his return to Umno was meant to be accompanied by defectors who would have caused the Selangor government to collapse.
“If he doesn’t know, then how would I know. How would I have known?” Noh said at a press conference here today, after officiating the 20th National Housing and Property Summit 2017.
Muhammad, also known as Mat Taib, returned to Umno on September 17 after his sojourn with Opposition parties.
