KUALA LUMPUR, 20 Feb 2009: Youths who want to express their anger and frustration on the political crisis in Perak should be given room to do so but under watchful eyes so not to disturb the peace, said Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth chairperson Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein.
Hishammuddin, who is also Umno Youth chief and Education Minister, said if they did not have an outlet to voice out their frustrations, it could lead to undesirable outcomes.
“At least we are not in the streets throwing stones and such,” he told reporters after attending a BN Youth gathering in support of royalty, held at Dewan Tun Abdul Razak, Putra World World Trade Centre last night.
He said this when commenting on the noise generated by some 3,000 youths from throughout the country who were gathered in the hall.
Many of them were very emotional that there were people showing disrespect to the monarchy of late and pledged their undivided loyalty to the Malay Rulers.
Also present were newly-appointed Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, and Umno Youth chief aspirants Khairy Jamaluddin, Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir and Datuk Seri Mohd Khir Toyo. — Bernama
