New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Wanita Umno is ready to go all-out to face the 14th Gen­eral Elec­tion (GE14), said its chief, Tan Sri Shahrizat Ab­dul Jalil.

She said the wing was con­fi­dent as its mem­bers had been work­ing with the peo­ple at the grass­roots and had be­come the

“eyes and ears” of the gov­ern­ment.

“Any­time the elec­tion is called, we are ready to go.

“All this while, we have been do­ing ev­ery­thing that we can for the peo­ple,” Shahrizat said af­ter hand­ing over med­i­cal aid from Yayasan Ke­ba­jikan Ne­gara (YKN) to a dial­y­sis pa­tient, S. Subamah, 70.

Shahrizat also agreed with Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak, say­ing the rea­son Umno re­mained rel­e­vant was be­cause it had never strayed from its path in fight­ing for the peo­ple.

“We have con­stantly fought for the bet­ter­ment of the peo­ple, like what our party pres­i­dent (Na­jib Razak) said in his speech last night at the Umno 71st an­niver­sary.”

Last night, Na­jib, in ad­dress­ing about 150,000 Umno mem­bers, said the party strug­gled not only for its mem­bers, but the whole pop­u­la­tion re­gard­less of race, re­li­gion and back­ground.

Mean­while, Petaling Jaya South Umno Divi­sion deputy chief Datuk Ab­dul Mu­talif Ab­dul Rahim said the party grass­roots mem­bers were work­ing hard to en­sure that Umno and Barisan Nasional would re­cap­ture Se­lan­gor from Pakatan Hara­pan come GE14.

“We are 100 per cent pos­i­tive that we can win back Se­lan­gor if this mo­men­tum is kept up and we al­ways put the peo­ple first,” he said. Ber­nama
