Barisan Nasional (BN) is more realistic with its voters as compared with other parties who choose to play hate-based politics, Prime Minister Najib Razak said today.
In his message to the party’s Puteri wing today, Najib said “that side” – believed to be in reference to Opposition parties, including the newly-formed Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) – was only talking politics.
This, he said, was in contrast to Umno who carried an agenda that was accepted by the people.
“We have transcended poltics and are being more realistic in trying to get votes,” Najib said at the Young Women’s Carnival at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) here, today.
“We must think, putting others down will not carry us anywhere. If our agenda is good for the country, then the country will succeed.”
Building on the strength of BN’s big win in the recent Sarawak elections, and the twin by-elections in the peninsula (Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar), Najib said the challenge now was to prepare BN’s young activists with the skill sets needed to face future challenges.
“This will include knowledge on harmony, soft skills, leadership and networking,” he said.
