DISCONTENT ROCKS BN: SURELY AS UMNO PRESIDENT, NAJIB CAN STOP JAMAL ONCE & FOR ALL – GERAKAN LEADER
Gerakan Youth has urged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to put an end to red shirts leader Jamal Md Yunos’ plans once and for all.
The wing’s deputy chief Andy Yong said although Jamal and some Umno leaders have claimed the movement is not linked to Umno, the fact is that Jamal is the Sungai Besar Umno division chief.
“Surely, being the president of Umno, Najib can take action as Jamal is the Sungai Besar division chief.
“Not to mention the other Umno members who are clearly involved,” he told Malaysiakini today.
Yong pointed out that Najib’s 1Malaysia concept is about unity in diversity and inclusiveness as well as accepting and celebrating differences, not mere tolerance or respect.
“The PM also has been advocating moderation, which should be the way to move forward. He is the PM for all Malaysians,” he added.
Though conceding that it is the right of any group to assemble and protest lawfully, Yong cited the violent acts the red shirts have perpetrated.
Yesterday, Yong led a Gerakan Youth delegation to lodge a police report on a Facebook post allegedly made by Jamal, by threatening a repeat of the May 13, 1969, incident.
He said while Jamal had claimed the post was from a fake account, the police must investigate whether or not it had actually come from him.
Apart from this, Yong also urged the police to take action on the fracas that took place recently, such as the ones in Teluk Intan, Sabak Bernam and Gurney Drive, where the red shirts confronted participants of the Bersih 5 convoy.
