Stay loyal to party, Sabah Umno members told

July 15, 2012

Sabah Umno deputy chief Salleh Said Keruak also wants party members to take a proactive step to uphold the good reputation of Umno.

KOTA BELUD: Sabah Umno deputy chief Salleh Said Keruak has called on Umno members to prioritise loyalty and solidarity to ensure the continuity of the party’s struggle.

In making the call, he said this was vital because it was the party which would form the government and not individuals.

“We must be loyal to our struggle and will not betray the party. Loyalty has to be maintained at all times to ensure the party’s strength,” he said in his speech when officiating Umno Kota Belud division’s annual delegates meeting, here today.

Salleh, who is Umno Kota Belud division head, said members must show total loyalty to the party and not just half-hearted struggle for self interest.

“We don’t want any two-faced members in our party,” he said adding that their struggle for the party should be consistent and placed the party’s interest above all.

Salleh also urged party members to take a proactive step to uphold the good reputation of Umno.

“We want them to adopt a people-friendly approach, casting egoism and the practice of self interest. We must also show moderation so that the party is always seen by the people to be associated with goodness or good deeds.

“We should not underestimate the intelligence and knowledge of our voters. We must be versatile, sensible and professional in our approach without being emotional, especially in explaining the party’s mission and policy,” he said.

Salleh, who is also Sabah Legislative Assembly Speaker, also wanted Umno members to be more aggressive in their efforts to win the hearts and minds of the people ahead of the 13th general election.

He said Sabah had enjoyed rapid economic development under the leadership of Chief Minister Musa Aman, noted for taking the state’s financial status to greater heights with a record state’s reserve of more than RM3 billion as well as was instrumental in putting in place state’s blueprint development agenda and the Sabah Corridor Development (SDC).
