A reminder to members to uphold Umno’s struggles
KOTA KINABALU: The upcoming 71st anniversary of Umno’s formation will serve as a significant reminder for members to uphold the party’s struggles for the nation.
Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin said the party had facilitated vast changes for the country since its formation.
“All these years, the party has placed national development as its focus.
“It has remained true to its struggle to serve the people.”
Rosnah said the party’s membership had grown by leaps and bounds, and there were more than one million members in Sabah.
“Umno has members who are farmers, decision-makers, housewives, community leaders and entrepreneurs.”
She said the party’s emphasis on protecting the people’s interests had touched the lives of many.
Rosnah said she was fortunate to have served the party in different capacities since becoming a member in 2001.
“I have seen the party’s trials and tribulations, faced obstacles and savoured the fruits of the party’s labour.
“For me, what matters most is that I belong to an organisation that allows me to serve my constituents, fellow members and coalition partners that hold true to the same principles of helping fellow Malaysians.”
