TELUK INTAN – Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) should view seriously and come up with the best strategies to face the possibility of one-on-one fights the coming 14th general election (GE14), said Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.
Tajuddin, who also Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister, said there was a possibility of this taking place because the opposition had long dreamed of toppling the government.
But, he said, it was impossible for the opposition parties to form a stable government because each had their own agenda.
“Umno and BN leaders must make early preparations to counter the people propaganda and slander spread by the opposition.
“The people must be told that the policies of the opposition parties, if they succeed in forming the government, will not guarantee the future of the nation and its multi-racial people, and the Malays,” he told reporters here today.
The Pasir Salak Member of Parliament also said that former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who was an Umno leader in the past, was now spreading all kinds of propaganda in his effort to topple Umno and BN.
“As such, I urge all Umno leaders and members to be wary of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) which is trumpeting his propaganda,” he said.
He said Umno members and supporters must realise this and take the needed action to ensure what Dr Mahathir planned did not succeed.
Dr Mahathir, who resigned from Umno last year, was behind the formation of PPBM which received approval in principle from the Registrar of Societies. Its pro-tem president is former deputy prime minister and former Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who was sacked from Umno earlier this year.
