KUALA LUMPUR – Khairy Jamaluddin today warned Umno not to underestimate the Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad-led Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) ahead of the coming General Election (GE).
The Umno Youth chief said the party must be wary that PPBM would continue to dip from the same pool of supporters as Umno’s, and that it was pertinent that members pledge their solidarity with the party.
“Do not take lightly the challenges posed by that Umno splinter party. Though we are certain Umno is stronger and greater, do not forget that this ‘flower’ party will dip from our supporters.
“So let there be more no more cracks and fissures in Umno. The more fractured we are, the more supporters we will lose to them (PPBM),” he said in his policy speech at the Umno Youth general assembly, here, yesterday. – The Sun
