HULU TERENGGANU – All UMNO leaders from the divisional to the grassroots level were today reminded to get out of their comfort zone and not be carried away by their position to the extent of forgetting their obligations to the party.
UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Zahid Hamidi said leaders who had been chosen by the grassroots should realise that their big responsibility after the UMNO elections last year was to ensure that Barisan Nasional (BN) remained in power after the 14th General Election.
“We need to reflect on the mistakes we have made. Allah wants to test us as we are in a too-comfortable zone. We have forgotten the promises we made before we became division leaders, elected representatives or ministers. We don’t care for the people who had helped us before…let’s return to the right path.”
The deputy prime minister said this when opening the Hulu Terengganu UMNO division delegates’ meeting at the Akademi Binaan Malaysia hall, here.
Also present were Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman, who is also the Terengganu UMNO Liaison Committee chairman, and Communications and Multimedia Deputy Minister Datuk Jailani Johari, who is also Hulu Terengganu UMNO chief.
Ahmad Zahid said the failure of a party or organisation was because the entrusted individuals failed to carry out their responsibilities. – BERNAMA
