Avoiding wastage, price hikes touched on at delegates' briefing

Bernama (5/11/2007): Avoiding wastage, hikes in the prices of essential goods and fuel and efforts to make the economy more resilient were among the issues touched on by Umno President Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the presidential briefing for delegates prior to this year's Umno general assembly.

Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Radzi Sheikh Ahmad said Abdullah also asked party members to exercise restraint when debating sensitive issues as it could affect racial harmony.

Asked whether Abdullah asked members against raising any sensitive issues, Radzi said the president did not stop them from doing so but merely asked them to be more careful when deliberating on issues which could be deemed sensitive by other races.

Radzi was asked to comment on the closed-door presidential briefing for Umno delegates attending the party's general assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre here beginning today.

A Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said Abdullah reminded the delegates on the need for the people to brace themselves against the pressures of price hikes.

Mohamad, who is also Negeri Sembilan Menteri Besar, said Abdullah stated that at times the government had to make unpopular decisions.

The Prime Minister said that the government had given a lot of subsidies to the people to ease their burden, he said.

"So the Prime Minister reminded the people to be wise in their spending," said Mohamad.

Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the delegates were reminded to exercise caution when debating on religious and racial issues.

Umno Youth vice chief Khairy Jamaluddin said the briefing reminded the delegates on the need to preserve harmonious relations among the races.

"A lot of critical issues were raised by the president. The delegates wore a worried look when the challenges were laid before them," he said.

Umno information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhamad Taib said Abdullah told the delegates to strengthen the party and bolster its unity.
