UMNO leaders deaf?

Leaders ‘still not listening’

MUAR: Umno branch members are surprised that party leaders still refused to listen to the grassroots before deciding on party matters, such as making pledges to support the top leadership.

Several Umno branch leaders here, represented by Datuk Kadar Shah Tun Sulaiman Ninam Shah, said division leaders in Johor had not consulted the grassroots before openly pledging Johor Umno’s support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on Friday.

“It seems that Johor division leaders have forgotten their recent pledge to go back to the grassroots and to listen to their voices before making any big decision,” he said yesterday. - the star online
