KUALA LUMPUR: Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi will engage with the party’s 13 state liaison committee chairmen and three representatives of the Umno Overseas Club through video conferencing on Monday.

Party secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said the event was being held to mark Umno’s 74th anniversary.

He said Ahmad Zahid would also present Umno awards to frontliner agencies addressing the Covid-19 pandemic in appreciation of their services and commitment.

“The plaque and certificate of appreciation to the agencies will be presented at a date to be announced later,” he added.

Ahmad said the anniversary celebration would be held in moderation, taking into account the ongoing movement control order (MCO).

He urged all Umno members to raise the party flag at their homes as a sign of gratitude to the party’s struggles over the past seven decades.

“Let us celebrate this 74th anniversary of Umno, which coincidentally falls in the month of Ramadan which is a time for us to strengthen our resolve to continue fighting for the party’s dignity and the future of the people,” he added. — Bernama
