Strengthen Party, Shafie Tells UMNO Members

LIPIS, Aug 15 (Bernama) -- Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal has called on party members to consolidate the party in the wake of the latest attempts by the opposition to undermine Islam and Umno.

He said that party members should be aware of the attempts to erode Umno's strength.

"We should regroup and be united because the people rely on us, not the opposition parties," he said when opening the Lipis Umno delegates' meeting here today.

He said that the opposition parties' ever-changing stance on certain issues showed that they did not have a strong conviction to fight for the people.

This is the time for Umno to rise and restore the people's confidence in the party, he said.

He also took certain leaders of opposition parties for hurling insults at Islam.

"What is more saddening is that the act is condoned by religious figures," he said.

Meanwhile, Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman described PAS as a party which was being used by others in the attempts to gain power in the country.

Speaking when opening the Kluang Umno delegates' meeting in Kluang, he said, PAS was capable of disuniting the Malays if nothing was done to counter its political agenda. -- BERNAMA
