Forget Chinese Votes, Don’t Waste Time On Them, Says Perak Umno Man
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 28 – Don’t waste time on the Chinese as they don’t offer the Malays any benefits, said an Umno delegate today. Datuk Mohamad Razi Manan, a party delegate from Perak, said Umno should “return to the Malays and stop focusing on other races as the Malays are the basis of the party”. “The Chinese will only vote for their own kind. We can forget about their votes.
“Helping them is akin to watering the Saharan desert — no matter how much you water, it will go missing,” said Razi while debating at the Umno general assembly in Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) here today. He said that Umno should not forget that only the Malays would understand the party’s struggles. “The Chinese don’t trust Umno any more and they don’t benefit us in any way too,” he said.
The general assembly, which goes on until tomorrow, has thus far seen its fair share of Chinese bashing. Just two days ago, Baling Wanita Umno chief Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim had alleged that a Chinese in Kuala Kedah had burned a copy of the Quran during a prayer session, and urged delegates to speak up. In reply, DAP lambasted Mashitah for generalising the act of one man, as the whole race, and would lodge a police report against her on the matter.
