"We want a win for Barisan, and we don't want people to continue to be incited.

"They (Opposition) can have large gatherings, but we don't need large gatherings, we have bigger spirits and if a such high spirit is translated into the GE, we will win," Ahmad Zahid said on Saturday (Sept 17) at Stadium Titiwangsa at the launch of the Barisan Youth election machinery.
