KUCHING, Oct 21: Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties were so frustrated with the general election campaign materials as well as the backdrop of the meeting that some just walked out of the BN meeting which is presently taking place in Kuala Lumpur.
According to an insider attending the meeting, a few MCA members left the meeting, whether by coincidence or on purpose has yet to be confirmed.
The BN leader attending the function said the meeting was more like an UMNO meeting rather than a BN meeting where the backdrop display consisted only of images of UMNO top guns.
Even the campaign materials also showed only these UMNO leaders and none of BN leaders.
“It’s more like an UMNO meeting than BN meeting. Many of us are very unhappy.
“It says on the backdrop ‘Pemukiman Tentera BN’. I think it’s more accurate to say ‘Pemukiman Tentera UMNO,” the source told DayakDaily.
This meeting had been scheduled for sometime, and there were speculations that it would be about the 14th General Election.
However, the source said as of 11.00am, there was no mention about the date of the election as well as other concrete details. — DayakDaily
