If Najib claim it can mobilise 3mil -apparently refering to its 3mil members, to a public assembly-why not? But that is not a reason to stop others from organising a 300k rally! Or is it a case of blowing hot air to suppress the citizens’ right to peaceful assembly Najib claim that assemblying his 3mil army will be `irresponsible’ -why? Does he think that they can then take the laws into their own hands? So far the UMNO assemblies have been lacking attendants-so the only way they can do it is to loan people from the civil servants and pay people to become rent-a-mob. Looking back at the million youth assembly the highest concentration of attendants were only 2000 at 1 time. The organiser claim that the people who come and go during the entire event could come to 1 mil. So much for UMNO’s hot air which depend on abusing government’s expenditures and personnel.
Worst it is not sure if the 3mil members of UMNO are real. Ex-UMNO VP Ghafar Baba exposed that the actual members of UMNo could be no more than 600-700k, because a big part of UMNO’s purported membership are `volunteered’ by the branch and division chiefs who sign and pay for their membership. Addresses are changed from the `member’s’ actual address so that the `member’ will never find out if they were actually UMNo members. Other BN parties are also suspected to practice the same `membership’ system!
