JELI, Oct 15 2016 : Kelantan Umno is reviving the ‘Jelajah Gelombang Merah’ programme by making it more people-friendly in anticipation of the 14th General Election, said its liaison chief Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.
He said the programme, first introduced by Kelantan Umno in the last general election, would be redesigned with a new format to include the participation of Umno state, division and branch leaders.
“We will improve on the programme to make it more relaxed and people-friendly as we believe this concept will boost the people’s spirit to support Barisan Nasional in ensuring the coalition’s victory in Kelantan in the 14th general election,” he added.
He told this to reporters after launching the programme for Jeli divisional level here yesterday.
Mustapa said the programme would include ‘gotong royong’ to clean public facilities, community sports, cultural performances, health screening, exhibition, sale carnival and briefings on current issues.
He said the programme would be carried out in all the 14 Umno divisions in the state as a run up to the 14th general election. – Bernama
I doubt that BN or to be more exact Umno can capture Kelantan from Pas in the next general election, but I think this "relaxed and people-friendly" Jelajah Gelombang Merah will help improve Umno's image throughout the country.
It's much better than the Red Shirts, who are on a collision course with the Bersih people next month.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, I dislike the Red Shirts and Bersih for their troublesome antics of wanting to impose their presence on the streets.
If Tok Pa and his people in Kelantan can come up with peaceful and beneficial programme to highlight their initiatives for the people, why can't Bersih and Red Shirts do the same?
Why must they threatened to brawl on our streets?
I know that some people love to see the fighting and are goading them to go at each others' throat in their blogs, etc, but I hope it will not happen.
As I stated previously, I will even support the authorities if they intervene to stop both the Bersih and Red Shirts rallies.
Enough of their nonsense, okay.
We got better things to do than being bothered by them, such as improving our lives and caring for the ones we love.
We all really should just do things peacefully without disturbing others and wait for the general election to settle our political differences.
Just be patient for the time being. It's not that long from now.
If we need to campaign, we can do so the nice way like Tok Pa and his people.
I always like Tok Pa.
I first met him many years ago when he was the Entrepreneur Development Minister.
He was nice then and he is still nice now.
I even once hung out quite a bit with one of his daughters.
She was also nice to me like her father.
Some people say nice guys don't win wars, but I disagree.
As far as I'm concerned Tok Pa is a winner because of his nice ways.
I hope everyone can learn from him and his people in Kelantan.
It's not a contest of who are more "gedebe" (gangster-like). It's actually a contest of who are the ones the people like more.
Who do you all like more? Ambiga, Jamal or Tok Pa?
