Manek Urai. Nothing differs in BN approach. My personal observation, its not between Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat. Its more about Umno and Pas vendetta.
No doubt that there were sweet words about 'Pas-Umno unity talks', the atmosphere here is rather sombre. No issue, except the bag of goodies brought by some Federal leaders to woo voters.
Umno approach is still the same. They never learnt from the defeat in Kuala Terengganu. Too many goodies, so many promises. As usual, the parade of luxury cars has begun. Pemuda and Puteri, especially, were turning this landlocked area as their arena to gain personal mileage.
They were quite okay in Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau, keeping their heads low as possible.
However in Manek Urai, they were up to their galore again. I dont think it will augur well for Umno. The folks of Manek Urai are 70 per cent Pas supporter. Irrespective of how much money and how many projects you flush them, their domain will remain.
Perhaps Tan Sri Muhyiddin should call a briefing among those involved in Manek Urai. With just two more days to polling, they should concentrate more on talking sense. The Manek Urai people do respect Umno but after living under Pas for so many years, they know how to survive.
Please tell a few of Umno/BN speakers to leave Manek Urai. Carpet bombings are normal things in 'ceramahs' but personal assassination is not the kind of thing the people like to hear.
I doubt Umno will win this time (although I want them to).
