KUALA LUMPUR: The Indian Progressive Front (IPF) need to continue supporting Barisan Nasional (BN) because the party is on the right track to bring about development to the country by 2020.
Umno Secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the BN government under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has not only promised transformation and changes but fulfilled such promises.
"Since BN has always kept its promises, the mandate must be given to the Prime Minister to continue bringing about transformation and changes to the country and the people," he said after launching IPF's election machinery here today.
Also present were IPF President Datuk M. Sambanthan and BN executive secretary Datuk Abu Khamis.
Tengku Adnan said for BN to get a strong mandate from the people, members in IPF, an associate member of BN, themselves must be united.
"Stop the existing internal conflicts (if any) in the party. IPF was formed by the late Tan Sri M.G. Pandithan to champion the struggles of the Indian community.
"To those who are still in conflict, unite, resolve the problems for the benefit of the Indian community...if the party (IPF) is strong, it can do many good things for the Indian community," he said, urging the members to continue supporting the president.
Meanwhile, Sambanthan said the programme was the fourth organised by IPF this year.
"IPF has 112,000 members in eight states. During the election, all 80 branches of IPF will start working," he said. -- BERNAMA
