Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said the People's Uprising Rally (KL112) was "no big deal" as his party has gathered more people before.
He said the total number of people who attended Umno's 66th anniversary celebration last year, which lasted 13 days, surpassed those who attended the rally.
"So to us, it's no big deal. If we (take account of) all our crowd (numbers), it's much more than theirs," said the Khairy.
Khairy, who is also the Rembau MP, said this during a press conference in Kuala Lumpur today.
On turnout, Khairy said that Pakatan Rakyat had failed to gather one million people as targeted and that they knew of this before hand.
He said this was the reason why Pakatan refused to use an offer by the 100,000 capacity Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil to use their venue.
"With the amount that they have, Bukit Jalil would hardly be full... the field alone (can accomodate) 30,000. So the field will be empty if they went to Bukit Jalil," he said.
