Khairy: Dr M is wrong in saying Umno is not open to criticism

Umno Youth chief, Khairy Jamaluddin said that former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was wrong to say that Umno needed to be open to criticism.

A news portal reported on Tuesday that Khairy said that Umno had always accepted criticism and party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak also accepted dissenting views.

Khairy said Umno had never prohibited anyone from speaking out against the party leadership, as he claimed that delegates were always allowed to express their views during party meetings.

Dr Mahathir in his blog post stated that Umno was a party that practiced self censorship, where silencing opposing views and instilling fear of speaking out was accepted.

He also added that the administration of the current Prime Minister and its policies reflected the 'yes-men' culture.

Open to criticism but not responding or reacting to it is just like `not open to criticism`.
