KUALA LUMPUR: Umno’s “Juara Rakyat” programme next year may face tough competition as Pas is gearing up for a “Umno Pengkhianat Rakyat” campaign from Jan 9.
Pas vice-president Salahuddin Ayub said Umno always accused Pas of betraying the Malays by cooperating with DAP in Pakatan Rakyat.
“We want to list down everything about Umno. We have proof and will reveal them in pamphlets and at ceramah,” Salahuddin said yesterday.
On Monday, Pas information chief Idris Ahmad said Pas branches, including those in Umno strongholds, had been directed to prepare for the campaign to pinpoint Umno’s weaknesses.
On Monday, Deputy Prime Minister and Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that Umno would launch the “Juara Rakyat” programme to win back the support of the Malays.
