Beware of opposition's psychological warfare: Khairy

YAN (Nov 2, 2013): Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said he hoped that Sungai Limau voters are not influenced by the psychological warfare carried out by the opposition towards the end of the campaign period which ends at midnight tomorrow.

He said it was normal for the opposition to employ various tactics and provocations at the last minute, which includes allegations of phantom voters which they have yet to prove until now.

"The opposition hurled all kinds of accusations during the general election which they cannot prove. They said 40,000 foreign voters were brought from Sabah and Sarawak and other areas, but they have not proved this in court," he told reporters after presenting sports equipment to several constituent groups at Sekolah Kebangsaan Dulang, near here today.

Commenting on PAS' action of presenting Ustaz Azhar Idrus in their ceramah programme tomorrow, Khairy, who is also Youth and Sports Minister, said voters need to evaluate what is being delivered by the independent speaker before accepting the information.

"There are political messages embedded in his ceramahs, so there is a possibility for biasness. He does not give religious talks focused on religion but political ceramahs that are one-sided," he said.

Commenting on the campaigning done by BN's machinery, Khairy said they were carried out peacefully without any interference and momentum had increased through support from the local community.

"I find that the response for our programmes for youths so far to be encouraging. Although we don't know who or how they will vote on Monday, things look good," he said.

Meanwhile, Umno supreme council member Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan said voters in the Sungai Limau must pick their elected representative not by following their emotions but by thinking of the future of the younger generation.

"Dont't let two seconds of voting result in five years of suffering," he said at a gathering with 50 security guards of schools in Sungai Limau here today.

He said the federal government had a good policy to help the people and as such, the people of Sungai Limau must choose correctly so that development could be in line with the planning of the federal government.

Touching on the request of security guards at schools for insurance coverage when manning crossings for pupils, Abdul Rahman, who is also Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local government, said it would be forwarded to the Education Ministry. – Bernama
