HULU TERENGGANU:Umno leaders at the grassroots levelÂ should organise more programmes which will bring them closer to the people andÂ understand their problems, said Deputy Communications and Multimedia MinisterÂ Datuk Jailani Johari.
Jailani, who is the member of parliament for Hulu Terengganu, said theseÂ leaders should increase their programmes by going to meet the people all theÂ time and not just before elections.
“What is important is that we in Hulu Terengganu Umno must strengthen allÂ activities held at the grassroots level so as to protect the party.
“We must also be prepared to face current issues which are brought up byÂ certain parties and be united in protecting the party,” he said in his speech atÂ the breaking-of-fast dinner with 300 Umno Hulu Terengganu leaders, hereÂ yesterday.
Also present at the dinner, organised by Hulu Terengganu Umno, were ChairmanÂ of the Youth, Sports and Human Resource Committee, Datuk Rozi Mamat who is alsoÂ the state assemblyman for Telemong, and Terengganu Wanita Umno head DatukÂ Fatimah Hamat.
The event was also attended by 15 media practitioners from the MalaysianÂ National News Agency (Bernama), Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM), Astro Awani andÂ the Terengganu Communications Unit.–BERNAMA
