PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil will use her opening speech at the Wanita Umno general assembly tomorrow to silence her critics over the “cows and condos” issue.
“Although it has nothing to do with me, I have one or two messages to deliver,” the Wanita Umno chief said at a press conference yesterday.
Shahrizat has been embroiled in the National Feedlot Centre controversy, accused of cronyism involving her family.
Women power: Shahrizat, her deputy Datuk Kemilia Ibrahim (front row, third from left) and Wanita Umno exco members showing their solidarity for the wing in Petaling Jaya yesterday.
She also stressed that the wing had not imposed a gag order on the issue and delegates were free to discuss it when taking part in the debates.
Shahrizat said she was prepared to tackle the matter head on to clear the air once and for all. “I am not going to flip. I am very clear on this.
“The Opposition is afraid of Wanita Umno’s strength. We are effective on the ground, serving the rakyat, and the Opposition is nervous about it,” she said.
Shahrizat said the “cows and condos” issue would not distract her from her main objective of heading Wanita’s machinery for the coming general election.
“We will not let politically-motivated criticism divert our attention.
“The spirit of comradeship is crucial in fighting the war against the Opposition,” she said
Akhbar The Star telah mengutarakan tajuk berita yang menarik "Wanita Umno chief to tackle ‘cows and condos’ issue head on" seolah-olah Pergerakan Wanita UMNO Malaysia tidak ada isu lain untuk dibawa dalam perhimpunan agung UMNO yang diadakan setahun sekali.
Shahrizat telah terbawa-bawa dengan isu ini sehingga diseret ke dalam kandang lembu oleh pihak pembangkang.
Inilah akibatnya jika pemimpin yang berkuasa terbabit dengan projek Kerajaan, isu-isu sebegini cukup mudah diputar belitkan oleh golongan-golongan pemutar alam.
Hakikatnya isu ini tidak mudah terhakis dalam pemikiran pengundi-pengundi di akar umbi kecuali Shahrizat "pusin satu Melaya" (meminjam kata-kata Ahmad Nisfu) memberi penjelasan.
Sejarah telah mengukir ramai pemimpin-pemimpin besar lelaki yang jatuh kerana wanita dan semoga sejarah tidak terpahat ada pemimpin wanita yang jatuh kerana lembu.
