MUAR, Malaysia April 30 (NNN-Bernama) — Warding off slanders and fake news in the social media by irresponsible quarters is among the challenges faced by Barisan Nasional in its 14th general election (GE14) campaign.
UMNO vice-president Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said candidates and machinery should harness their resources to meet voters direct to inform them of the real stories especially to the younger group.
“The war in the social media gave various perceptions of the BN government. So it is is better for us to meet as many voters as possible.
“Make them understand the issues. The message must go down. This is our challenge,” he said after a ‘Jalinan Kasih’ programme at Muar UMNO building here today.
About 1,000 members of People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela), Civil Defence Force (APM) and National Service Volunteer Brigade (BSKN) attended the ceremony.
Also present were Muar parliamentary seat incumbent, Razali Ibrahim, BN Maharani state seat candidate Ashari Md Sarip and Sungai Balang assemblyman, Zaiton Ismail.–NNN-BERNAMA
