DENGKIL, 20 June (Bernama) - Twenty PAS and PKR members from Kampung Dato
Abu Bakar Baginda in Dengkil returned to UMNO after losing faith in the
opposition coalition, Pakatan Rakyat.
Former PAS member, Akhiah Samidin, 57, said Pakatan Rakyat leaders made
empty promises to deceive the voters during the 12th General Election but did
not fulfill any of them for the villagers.
"We were deceived by the opposition''s political propaganda at the time. We
have returned to UMNO willingly. We realise that Pakatan Rakyat has no clear
plans for the people and only Barisan Nasional can ensure the future of our
younger generations," he told reporters last night.
The group of former PAS and PKR members handed their UMNO membership forms
to Dengkil state assemblyman Datuk Marsum Paing, who reminded voters not to fall
for the opposition''s short-term plans at every general election.
"Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak''s leadership places "People
First, Performance Now". BN fulfills all its promises and we only promise what
can be delivered. We don''t promise the moon and the stars," he added.
