Kelantan Umno liaison committee chairman Mustapa Mohamed said only the Umno Supreme Council could determine he action to be taken against Gua Musang division chief Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who had stated a stand contrary to the federal government’s on the payment of oil royalty to Kelantan.

“It (the decision) is not within the jurisdiction of the Kelantan Umno. Only the Supreme Council can decide on the action to be taken against Tengku Razaleigh,” he said.

NONEMustapa (right), who is International Trade and Industry Minister, was asked whether Kelantan Umno would act against Tengku Razaleigh for having said on Thursday that the Kelantan state government should be given oil royalty instead of a
compassionate fund.

Following that statement, Prime Minister and Umno president Najib Abdul Razak said the party leadership would scrutinise Tengku Razaleigh’s speech made to a gathering at the Sultan Mohammed IV Stadium in Kota Baharu.

At a special meeting with the Pasir Puteh Umno Division in Pasir Puteh last night, Mustapa said the Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee would meet Najib to discuss and propose projects to be implemented for the people of Kelantan with the compassionate fund.

Mustapa had said recently that the federal government would provide RM20 million in compassionate fund to Kelantan, which was five per cent of the revenue from oil and gas production offshore Kelantan in 2008.
