Don't Allow Opposition To Thrive On Slander - Ismail Sabri

Last update: 13/08/2017

SEPANG, Aug 13 (Bernama) -- UMNO members should be more aggressive when responding to slander hurled at the party, UMNO Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said today.

He said the lackadaisical attitude of UMNO members in responding to the accusations promptly allowed the opposition to thrive on the situation and expressed the need for them to understand issues behind every slander raised by the oppositions.

"Currently, the opposition parties are thriving on their slander to survive, when we could put an end to it by responding with facts on the accusations hurled at UMNO.

"I believe, if every level in UMNO is concerned and make efforts to obtain the right information on the slander, such as on the issue of 1MDB or GST, iit could be used to counter the false information or at least erase their own doubts on the matter," he told a media conference after opening the Sepang UMNO delegates conference here today.

Also present were Sepang UMNO leader Datuk Marsum Paing and his deputy, Shahrum Mohd Sharif, who is Dengkil assemblyman.....
