Umno members have been told to take the opposition's 'Malay tsunami' seriously and were also reminded of the dangers of a DAP-led government, according to a news report.
"Umno members should not take (a GE14 victory as a given) by saying there is no problem and that the party can easily emerge victorious.
"They have to provide explanations to those who do not have a clear understanding about the country's politics.
"Prime Minister Najib Razak had previously said that Malays and bumiputeras have to choose whether they want to be ruled by an Umno-led government or a DAP-led alternative government, which will pose a threat (to them)," Tajuddin Abdul Rahman told reporters after opening the Kuala Krau Umno division Youth wing meeting near Temerloh yesterday.
According to New Straits Times (NST), Tajuddin said party members should not feel too comfortable with past successes or remain complacent.
A fortnight ago, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) president Muhyiddin Yassin warned that Umno would not be able to withstand the “Malay tsunami” that is now sweeping through the heartlands that used to be its strongholds.
Muhyiddin, the former Umno deputy president and deputy prime minister, was sacked from the party after raising the 1MDB scandal.
