ALOR STAR, Sept 19 (Bernama) -- Umno Youth vice-head Khairy Jamaluddin has outlined three aspects of camaraderie in strengthening the movement besides forging closer relations with the Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth wing.
He said the first aspect of camaraderie involved the Youth movement at the branch and national levels which must emphasise the close relationship so that there was no gap between them in championing the party's cause.
"The second aspect involves the Umno Youth movement and the BN Youth itself. This needs to be strengthened and relations between the two entities should be improved.
"There needs to be a new agreement on how to overcome crises within the BN," he said at a breaking of the fast organised by the Kuala Kedah Umno Youth at the Hidayatul Solihin Mosque at Jalan Gunung Keriang, near here Friday.
Khairy said the third aspect was to develop a good relationship with the young generation (non-Umno members) especially with the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) involving youths.Earlier in his speech, Khairy said Umno Youth must attract more people from the younger generation to join the movement in an effort to further strengthen Umno and the BN.
Khairy also appealed to the Umno Youth members to nominate him to contest the Umno Youth head post in the party election in December.-- BERNAMA
