KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Youth’s team in the Kajang by-election will tackle lies spread in cyberspace apart from organising talks, forums and other activities for the young.
The movement has set up a 100-man strong force to help in the Barisan Nasional campaigning, said its chairman Chong Sin Woon.
“We will also oversee the progress at the polling and counting centres,” he said after chairing the Youth central committee meeting yesterday.
He said that although the movement still felt that the by-election was unnecessary and a waste of public funds, it would go all out to win the seat.
Chong said they are all set to face the challenging by-election in which the MCA candidate – to be announced soon – would face PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
He added that Anwar was a “flip-flop leader” who had misused the democratic system and lied to the people.
Chong said many of the Youth leaders were candidates in the general election and they could share their experiences and help in the campaign.
He also condemned Selangor DAP for organising the “From Kajang to Putrajaya” fundraising event in Kajang on March 21.
As a member of the state government, the party should utilise its resources and funds to help the people and solve their problems, and not ask them to fork out money.
He said the Chinese slogan for the event “Safeguard Kajang, Stabilise Selangor, Move towards Putrajaya” should be changed to “Abandon Kajang, Causing havoc in Selangor, Dream about Putrajaya” due to the many controversial issues caused by the Pakatan Rakyat coalition.
