BUTTERWORTH: Wanita Umno has declared its campaign in the Permatang Pauh by-election as jihad or a holy war.
Its deputy chief, Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, said the movement would act as a bastion to stop an ambitious individual from achieving his dream and personal glory.
Strength in numbers: Shahrizat (front row, fifth left) cheering alongside Barisan Nasional component party members after the meeting in Seberang Jaya yesterday.
Without naming the person, she said he would do everything possible to become the Prime Minister at the expense of the people’s welfare and the country’s stability.
“The wing views the by-election as a critical election not just for Barisan Nasional but also for the whole country and its people.
“It is a jihad because this individual should not be given the chance to destroy the country’s political stability and prosperity.
