KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 17): The Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth machinery will be ready to provide assistance in flood-hit areas during the upcoming monsoon season, BN chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said. 

He said that should the 15th general election (GE15) happen to be held at year end, BN Youth will ensure help is provided in all areas affected by floods. 

“We will face constraints because at the end of the year, there will be heavy rains. There is the Northeast Monsoon. but even if Prime Minister [Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob] dissolves Parliament during the floods, we are ready to wade through floodwaters,” Zahid said when launching the BN Youth machinery at the Titiwangsa Stadium here on Saturday (Sept 17). 

Also present were BN deputy chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong and MIC president Tan Sri S A Vigneswaran.

Separately, Zahid, who is also the Umno president, expressed confidence that based on current sentiments and high spirits displayed by BN Youth, as well as the Wanita and Puteri wings, the coalition will be able to win the GE15. 

“We have to take a hybrid approach. Do not target youths alone. We have to work together to ensure all of our machinery is mobilised when our candidates are introduced,” Zahid said.
