I hear an Umno Division Chief from Pulau Pinang has tendered his resignation via a letter to Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
I hear the Divison Chief's drastic move is linked to the controversial redevelopment project of the Butterworth RMAF base.
I hear the grassroots leader and elected representative is upset that the federal government has refused to put a stop to the mega redevelopment project, that was reportedly approved during Pak Lah's reign as PM.
The project is also said to be linked to some of Pak Lah's men but I hear the main point of contention was the risk of relocating 'military votes' out of a certain constituency.
I hear most Umno grassroots leaders and elected representatives in Penang were against the mega relocation of military personnel and their families of the famous Butterworth Airforce base but only a sole people's representative was willing to put his neck on the line. The rest, I hear, have put Ringgit Malaysia signs around their neck.
The fact that his fellow 'fighters' have sold their soul could have triggered the Division Chief's drastic action. I may be wrong, but this is what I heard.
Forgive me if I'm wrong but if this is indeed true then the act of a Ketua Bahagian openly announcing his resignation during the Umno General Assembly would leave a bad taste and a long tale.
