Leaders play host at Umno Hari Raya open house

KUALA LUMPUR: After hosting a “sell-out” Hari Raya open house at Seri Perdana last month, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was back to play gracious host again, this time at a Umno do.

The Barisan Nasional chairman and Umno president welcomed thousands of people of all races at the Umno Adilfitri open house 2017 held at PWTC here yesterday.

Najib and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor arrived at 11.50am at the Tun Razak 1 Hall.

They were joined by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, party vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, Wanita Umno chief Tan Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, other senior par­­ty leaders, Cabinet ministers and leaders of Barisan component parties.

Guests were feted to various delicacies from every state such as soto Bangi, rendang Arau, mee bandung Muar, laksa Kedah and nasi kandar Penang, with entertainment by local artistes and cultural performers.

Muliandy Goppan, 54, from Jalan Masjid India here, said he was pleased to attend the event.

“Although Umno is a party for the Malays, we see people of all races here. This is really good for racial harmony,” he added.

Beatrice Chong, 25, a private university student, said she was happy and thrilled to meet the Prime Minister.

The open house ended at 3pm. — Bernama
