TANJONG KARANG, Jul 30 – The Selangor Barisan Nasional (BN) is seen as capable of winning back the state in the 14th general election. Umno treasurer Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Salleh Said Keruak said this was based on his observation where the Selangor BN only needed nine percent votes from the fence sitters to win back the state.
“I see that we already have signs of winning in the state. What is important is for us not to have doubts in our struggle. We have to unite, be confident and loyal to our leaders. With this spirit, there is no reason for us not to win,” he told reporters after opening the Tanjong Karang Umno delegates conference here today.
Also present was Selangor BN chairman Tan Sri Noh Omar, who is also Tanjong Karang Umno division leader. Salleh, who is Communications and Multimedia Minister, said the Selangor BN should resolve issues in the state wisely, including those involving quit rent, garbage collection and cleanliness, to continue to get the people’s support. “We form a government not because we are power crazy, but as a responsibility to fight for the people’s interests,” he said. — Bernama
