PM tells MCA to curb its communal tendencies

“Serve the people, not just the Chinese community but all races. If you see a poor Malay or Indian, go and help him.

“I encourage Umno to do it, too. During the fasting month, I gave aid to the poor Chinese and the Indians too… so what is wrong?” he said in his 48-minute speech.
