KUALA LUMPUR – Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin calls for movement members not to be apologetic in speaking for the future of the Malays.
â€œDon’t be ashamed of being Malay. We donâ€™t have to be shy when speaking about the direction and future of our own people. We do not have to be apologetic to others because this is all about us.â€
He also said â€œit has been long overdue for us to come together and rejuvenate Umno.â€
â€œThe Umno Youth has become an easy punching bag. If there is anything wrong in the party, any mistakes when carrying out our duties, it is always us who will be blamed,â€ he said.
Khairy added that movement members remained committed in fighting for partyâ€™s struggle due to their undivided love for Umno.
He said partyâ€™s rejuvenation has to be of utmost importance.
â€œAll can understand that it is truly our desire to rejuvenate Umno,â€ he said.
Khairy said while Umno do not lack in youth support, why there are young people who still support the opposition – even more worrying are those who joined the chauvinistic party?
He said the answer was simple – that party is seen giving opportunities to the young.
â€œIt is situations like these that form the perception that they are ready to uplift the youngâ€, he said. – NST Online
