SOME 300 par­tic­i­pants took part in the Se­lan­gor leg of the Umno 71st an­niver­sary flag run yes­ter­day, which kicked off from the Se­lan­gor Umno Build­ing here.

The par­tic­i­pants com­prised mem­bers from the Ka­par, Kota Raja, Shah Alam and Subang Umno di­vi­sions.

Se­lan­gor Umno li­ai­son com­mit­tee chief Tan Sri Noh Omar, who flagged off the par­tic­i­pants, said: “I am glad to see the strong dis­play of unity among mem­bers and hope it con­tin­ues un­til the gen­eral elec­tion.”

Noh said the run­ners would carry the Sang Saka Bangsa flags to Kuala Lumpur.

The flags were handed over to Umno’s Fed­eral Ter­ri­to­ries rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

The event also saw former Se­lan­gor men­teri be­sar Tan Sri Abu Has­san Omar and former na­tional unity and so­cial devel­op­ment min­is­ter Tan Sri Zaleha Is­mail be­ing awarded the Anugerah Tokoh Umno Ter­bilang Se­lan­gor for their con­tri­bu­tions.

Zaleha re­minded party mem­bers to sup­port its pres­i­dent, Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak.

She also said if Umno mem­bers wished to re­main strong so that Barisan Na­sional could win the next elec­tion, they must stay united.

“Umno mem­bers are the back­bone of the party and it is vi­tal to sup­port the top lead­er­ship,” she said.
