I'm Ready To Answer Slander, Says Khairy
KOTA BAHARU, Aug 4 (Bernama) -- Umno Youth vice chief Khairy Jamaluddin said Friday that the time had come for him to answer all allegations and slander levelled at him including a claim that he had gotten married to a popular actress.
He said the attacks against him had become very personal, and as a person with dignity, the slander must be answered quickly especially to members of the party.
Khairy dismissed an allegation that he had two wives, one of them was actress Maya Karin, and wanted people who made the claim to provide proof that he had married another.
"In the name of God, I only have one wife, she is Nori binti Abdullah and I hold to the principle of TTP -- Tak Teringin Pun (not interested in getting a second wife).
"I will use the opportunity of opening over 30 Youth divisional meetings nationwide to explain all the slander and now is the most appropriate time," he told reporters after opening the Pengkalan Chepa Umno Youth Delegates Conference here.
Khairy said he had kept silence all the while not because of fear but he had felt that the time was not right to answer the allegations.
He said if he did not explain when opening the meetings, all the slander would be perceived as true by certain quarters and provided more opportunities for them to blow up the issues.
"I have obligations to the party and when I answer, it does not mean I want to wage war but the objective is to speak the truth," he said.
Khairy has been criticised especially by the opposition and former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and is said to have a large influence over Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in decision-making.
