The Umno president said in his opening speech at the party’s annual general assembly here that minority voters have been misled by such “lies”, which also managed to turn the public against the Barisan Nasional government even as it was “genuinely” serving public interests.

“This is what we call the war on perception, a game that nearly defeated us… even if the government was on the right path and genuinely fighting for the people, compared to the Opposition that only knows intrigues and theatrics,” he said.

“Another thing that I must explain is, Umno is not a racist party. If we were, how could we accept and work with component parties of other races in harmony for decades?

“I must also stress that Umno is not anti-Chinese. But it is obvious that the Chinese and some of the Indians were also dragged, trapped and victimised by the Opposition’s perception (war) and lies”.
