PUTRAJAYA: Umno and Barisan Nasional can only return to its “glory days” if members unite and close ranks, says Datuk Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah (pic).
The Umno supreme council member, who is also Barisan’s communication director, said while differences in opinions are natural, it should not be to the detriment of the party.
“It is alright to have different views. Openness has always been a practice in this party. However, such openness means nothing if it causes damage to the party.
“Freedom of speech should not mean that we are free to say anything to the detriment of the party.
“Make sure that all actions taken are for the benefit of Umno and Barisan, ” said Shamsul Anuar in a Facebook post Monday (Jan 25).
The Energy and Natural Resources Minister said Umno members needed to place their own personal interests aside and focus on the party.
“I believe all leaders, members and supporters of Umno and Barisan want the party to return to its glory days.
“I am confident this can happen, but, there are conditions.
“All leaders, including myself, as well as party members, must close ranks, unite and focus on strengthening the party. Put this as a priority.
“Focus on defending and safeguarding the interests of the rakyat.
“We must bring the party closer to the people so they will be with us, ” he said.
