I am in support of what Tengku Ahmad Rithauddeen said on Wednesday, that Putera and Puteri Umno should be disbanded. Why? To check on money politics and to ensure that our younger generation will pay more attention towards nation-building and not to be engrossed in politics.
Umno should look into this. As too many party positions are at stake, money politics get more rampant.
What's the purpose of having Putera and Puteri, anyway if their role is merely put to subjudice? Some described Puteri and Putera Umno members as 'GROs' to the seniors, having to become 'chaperons' at all party functions.
Now that there was a call for Barisan Nasional to become a Malaysian party instead of its each and every single component to fly their own flags and banners each time a general elections or a by-election takes place, Umno should also forego its Wanita wing.
Just make it Umno. All levels of position should be open to contest, both to men and women and youth. Those with high popularity and positive charismatic leadership talent will find out that money politics wont take a hand no more.
Less wings means lesser positions for contest. Money politics would be easier to monitor. Only then will the party regain its altitude.
