KUALA LUMPUR: MCA members should be looking into their own contributions to the rakyat and not harp on the faults of the Opposition parties, says Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.
“We cannot take the people’s welfare for granted,” said the party president. “I hope all grassroots leaders will care for the people and set a time frame to settle their problems,” he added at the opening of the 45th Selangor MCA Youth AGM here yesterday.
Liow said the MCA’s political struggle was a long and challenging journey. “It is easy to give up, but we must strive to survive in the predicament and learn from the failures,” he said, emphasising the party’s principle to fight for the rights and betterment of the rakyat and the country.
He encouraged the members to have confidence in themselves and the party, adding that he did not wish to hear that there was nothing more they could do to revive the party.
“We must believe we will be able to regain the people’s support if we continue to contribute sincerely,” he said.
However, Liow added that he was pleased to see some divisions had regained their strength and had hit the ground to prove their worth.
Liow also expressed his wish to see more fresh faces, particularly from the Youth wing, at the next general election. “MCA will choose the best and capable candidates to represent the party.”
