(Plainly PN needs to see UMNO divided additional. Because the Youth Chief, you need to be defending the occasion and the chief as a substitute of including salt to the injuries.
(Take the instance of PPBM Wan Ahmad Fayhsal, who passionately defends his president at any time when political opponents attempt to undermine the occasion and its president. This isn’t about flattery; it’s about safeguarding the occasion and president. The UMNO Youth Chief ought to study from Wan about learn how to shield the occasion and president.
(And right here’s another query for the UMNO Youth Chief: Is your allegiance now with UMNO and the UMNO president, or is it with PN and the PN President?
(In case your coronary heart is with UMNO and the President, beginning immediately, attempt to discover ways to defend them. In case your coronary heart leans in the direction of PN, then fill out the varieties and be part of it. UMNO doesn’t want somebody who can’t defend the occasion and its president.) – Aug 19, 2023
