BN not feeling threatened by opposition’s strategies, says Rais

(Bernama) – Barisan Nasional (BN) does not feel threatened by the various calls and strategies mounted by the opposition as the ruling coalition continues to strive at winning the people’s hearts.

Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said: “They can say out whatever big dream they have but ultimately, it’s the people who will decide.

“We in BN will not sit still. We will work hard, and let’s see who will get the smiles of approval and be accepted by the people.

On DAP’s “middle path” strategy, he said: “As far as I know, the DAP has not done anything yet except being like ‘pungguk rindukan bulan’ (the owl pining for the moon) and the moon will not drop unless if Allah wills it.”

Rais, who is also Information Communication and Culture Minister, said this to reporters after receiving a courtesy visit from Sarawak Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr George Chan Hong Nam, who is also state Tourism and Heritage Minister, at his office in the Sultan Abdul Samad building, here, today.

The DAP’s “middle path” strategy, also named “Middle Malaysia”, was announced by party secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, at the party’s 15th national conference last weekend.
