KUALA LUMPUR: Umno's strategy to attract more members by going on a motorised convoy on a membership drive tour across the peninsula has been successful with more than 100,000 recruitments. 

The party's Youth chief Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein said the number had exceeded the 50,000 target made at the beginning of the drive which was spearheaded by the Youth and Puteri wings. 

“This shows that Umno is still relevant and able to attract new members, especially the younger generation,” he said at a ceremony to welcome the convoy here at Putra World Trade Centre last night. 

Also present were Puteri chief Azalina Othman Said and Umno executive secretary Datuk Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor. 

The convoy, which consisted of 42 cars and 40 super bikes carrying 220 Youth and Puteri members, passed through 12 states in the peninsula, covering 2,800km. 

Hishammuddin said the party would continue to find innovative ways to attract new members, adding that the convoy was a successful venture. 

The event was held in conjunction with Umno's 57th anniversary which was celebrated on May 11.
