Umno does not know meaning of defeat, says Salleh


IPOH: There is no such term as ‘defeat’ in Umno’s vocabulary as the party is working hard to win the 14th General Election (GE14), says Umno treasurer Salleh Said Keruak.

Salleh, who is also Communication and Multimedia Minister, said Umno members should not be afraid but take on a ‘winning mentality’ and continue to strive for the party and Barisan Nasional (BN).

“We think we will win because we have been working hard in giving clarification to the people. In the last general election there were some who were confused by the accusations and empty promises, so we must explain the truth to them so that they will come back to us.

“Sometimes we need to attack. We cannot just defend ourselves because the enemies do not wait for us and will find ways to eliminate us, so it is our responsibility to attack,” he said at the opening ceremony of the Gopeng Umno division delegates conference, here, today.

Salleh said leaders were not the prime measure in the party’s struggle because they would come and go, but the objectives of the party’s struggles were the priority.

Salleh also said Umno members should be careful about the challenges they faced regarding content posted on social media.

“There is fake information every day spread by the enemies, who aim to erode the people’s trust about the party’s leaders. It is only to disunite us. We must be careful,” he said.
