ALOR SETAR, Saturday 19 June 2010 (Bernama) -- Umno leaders in Kedah who fail to perform or carry out their duties will be referred to the party headquarters for action since their attitude gives the opposition a foothold to attack Barisan Nasional (BN).
Kedah Umno deputy liaison chief Datuk Paduka Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah said there were leaders who were selfish and failed to fulfill their responsibilities with dedication, thus tarnishing the credibility of Umno.
"I know that some leaders in the grassroots raise all sorts of issues but they themselves do not perform at their own areas or implement programmes that have been planned.
"We will report such leaders to the party headquarters so that necessary action can be taken against them," he told reporters after opening Alor Setar Umno Division's Delegates Meeting here today.
He added that such issues should not arise if they wanted to see Umno grow stronger.
"If we do not nip such issues in the bud, it will weaken Umno and give the opposition an opportunity to strengthen their position in Kedah. We do not want to see it happen," he said.
Meanwhile, Ahmad Bashah also urged the government to not continue with its decision to legalize football betting as it would only bring about a negative impact to families, the people and community.
tunku : kedah umno should get rid of the outdated leaders and not well accepted by the people any longer like mahadzir khalid,johari baharom etc.kedah umno needs new team or new set of leaders to charge up the party or else forget about taking over the state from pas.perhaps ahmad bashah should bring out the potential new leaders of the states and start experimenting them with the people on the ground as there's not much time left.
