Khairy: I’ll not let Malays be social outcasts

(The Star) KUALA SELANGOR: It is Umno Youth's responsibility to protect the party from internal threats as well as to ensure that Malay youths do not succumb to social ills.

Umno Youth deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin said the onus was also on the Youth wing to bring young Malays into the party fold.

Khairy said there were certain quarters which undermined Malay youths by saying that they were social outcasts for being involved in unhealthy activities like illegal racing, drugs and promiscuity, among others.

“I will personally not let that happen,” Khairy said in his speech after opening the Kuala Selangor Umno Youth delegates meeting last night.

He also said it was not necessary to apologise for protecting the party, religion, race and country.

Khairy said that Umno Youth would fight to ensure that the Malays were not left behind when the country becomes a developed nation by the year 2020.
