KUALA LUMPUR: Selangor UMNO Liaison Committee chairman Tan Sri Noh Omar says he has no intention to become Selangor Menteri Besar if Barisan Nasional (BN) wrests the state in the coming 14th general election.

He said all efforts by him and BN in assisting Selangor residents all this while were implemented sincerely as a responsibility to the people in the state.

"A leader should not harbour the ambition to hold posts as it could lead to disappointment and when not chosen, it could also cause a split in the party.
"The post is up to the leadership to give, our priority is to win Selangor first. Whoever is eligible can become the Menteri Besar," he told reporters after launching a fire safety campaign with residents of Taman Seri Aman Flats in Petaling Jaya, near here, today.

Selangor has been ruled by an opposition party coalition led by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) since 2008.

At the event, Noh who is Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Minister, announced an allocation of RM300,000 to repair and upgrade the fire-prevention system of the flats.

Noh also urged strata housing resident committees and associations to set up their respective community fire-fighting unit.

"This is an additional measure to prevent any fire outbreak at their residence," he added.
