SUNGAI PETANI: Umno leaders must put aside past conflicts and work together for the future, said Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic).
The Umno vice-president said with years of infighting and “camps” being set up, the party was at a losing end.
He said it was important that party members come together as a united front to face the upcoming general election.
Dr Ahmad Zahid, who was speaking before launching the Umno delegates meeting here, then called on Pantai Merdeka assemblyman Datuk Ali Yahaya and Sungai Petani division chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Saad to hug each other and put an end any rivalry.
“If they can work together, then both will have a place in the next general election. But if they refuse to get along or hold grudges, then both will not stand a chance,” Zahid told the crowd at the Municipal Council complex here Friday.
There was thunderous applause as Ali and Abdul Rahim hugged each other on stage.
