Khairy Says BN Fighting 'Wind'

RAUB, Jan 16 (Bernama) -- Umno Youth vice-chief Khairy Jamaluddin has described the straight fight between Barisan Nasional (BN) and an independent candidate in the Batu Talam state by-election as the BN "fighting with wind".

He said that though the independent candidate, Ng Chee Pang, did not have a political background, the BN should not look down on him and be complacent.

"We are like fighting with wind because we do not know where he comes from, and what are his strategies and agenda," he said at a Putera Umno function here Tuesday.

Khairy said Ng who would be celebrating his 22nd birthday this coming Monday, was probably supported by the Opposition, especially DAP.

For the Jan 28 polls, the BN candidate is Abdul Aziz Mat Kiram, 47, who is Raub Umno division secretary.
