PAGOH: MCA is an important member of Barisan Nasional and the Chinese community should continue to support the party, said Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The Deputy Prime Minister said he was aware that MCA members, including party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek, were working hard to build its image.

“MCA has and will always be part of Barisan through thick and thin. I do not want the Chinese papers to misquote my statement like they did the other day when they quoted me as saying that MCA did not understand the sentiments of the Chinese.

“In fact, I only said everyone should understand our voters and if Umno can do it, others including MCA, should also do it,” Muhyiddin said when launching the Pagoh MCA division meeting in Lenga here yesterday.

He said he had explained the issue to MCA deputy president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai during the Cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

Muhyiddin said that going into an election was like going to battle and Barisan needed to know its opponents.

“You cannot go to war blindly. You need to know the art of war,” he said, referring to Sun Tzu's book.

Muhyiddin hoped that voters would continue to support Barisan as a party that had delivered on its promises unlike Pakatan Rakyat.
