IPF would not budge from supporting BN in 13th GE
ALOR GAJAH: Despite being criticised and insulted by the opposition the Indian Progressive Front (IPF) would not budge from giving its undivided support to the Barisan Nasional in the coming 13th general elections.
Making this pledge, State IPF chairman V. Nagayah said that the insult, criticism and also the labelling of the party as no longer being relevant has made its members to be more determined in ensuring the success of the ruling coalition.
“Our support for the BN and its candidates in the coming general elections has not been derailed by even an inch by all those derogatory remarks by the opposition.
“In fact, it has made us much stronger than before and we have been moving actively to the ground meeting all the voters and helping the BN counter all the lies and slander spread by the opposition.
“Our mission is to ensure that Malacca would continue to remain a BN stronghold. We would fight till the end to see that the ruling coalition wins in all the State and Parliamentary constituencies, including in the ones which is currently held by the DAP,” he said.
Nagayah said this to reporters after a briefing to all its members at its operations centre, here, last night.
Nagayah also stressed that the IPF, despite not being considered as a component party of the BN, has for the past 24-years been 'close friends' with the ruling coalition.
“We have our full faith in the BN and that it would continue to lead the Indian community in the country to greater heights,” he said.
