No party betrayal issue in Puteri Umno

MARAN: The issue of betrayal against the party has not surfaced in Puteri Umno as the movement is relatively new, said its chief Datuk Azalina Othman Said. 

However, she reminded members that in joining the party they should not think that they would be repaid with wealth or other benefits. 

Puteri Umno members were constantly reminded they were in the party for the benefit of the Malay community. 

“We have been taught that we join the party because we are thankful for the benefits that we have gained through Umno, and we want to repay Umno by working for the party and the people,” she said, commenting on recent reminders by acting party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and vice-president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak that acts of betrayal can destroy the party. 

“The reminder is timely because the problem of betrayal among the members will destroy the party in the long run,” Azalina told reporters after attending a meeting with Pahang Puteri Umno at Pekan Tajau, near here, on Sunday. 

Azalina said she was happy that Puteri Umno members were not involved in revenge campaigns or protests just because they were not selected as leaders or committee members. 

“I ask Puteri members who have lost their bids for seats in the pro tem committees to continue to work for Puteri and the party,” she added.
