Umno is in fact afraid of Anwar’s shadow

Referring to Federal Territory Umno Secretary, Datuk Seri Syed Ali Alhabshee’s remark that Anwar’s influence was long gone as soon as he stepped into the Sungai Buloh Prison, was a statement made by someone who is very afraid of Anwar’s influence.
Anwar’s influence is only getting stronger, in fact it is spreading further as soon as he was detained. Only those who are afraid of him would say that his influence is wavering, but the fact is, every supporter who carries the struggle for a better Malaysia is actually carrying his influence and spirit.
Even the former Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as a Pakatan Harapan leader acknowledges that Anwar is an influential person, and so chose to meet and discuss with him in Court although Anwar was restraint by time and movement.
In fact, this is not the first time that Tun Mahathir had gone to Court to meet Anwar. That is enough to show how relevant he is in oppositions’ struggles although he is behind bars.
A poll conducted by the Institut Darul Ehsan (IDE) on October 26 until August 26 found that the Keadilan General Leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim is still a preferred candidate from the opposition to lead Malaysia.
In that poll, Anwar received 30% support while the former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir got only 24% and PAS President, Tn. Guru Hj. Abd Hadi Awang 14%.
Therefore, I conclude that it is not Datuk Seri Syed Ali Alhabshee alone who is afraid of Anwar’s influence, in fact the whole of Umno and Barisan Nasional are also increasingly shaky when Anwar was jailed but his spirit and his name continue to be raised and propagated.
In fact, it is the strength from there that I am certain will cause the fall of Barisan Nasional in the coming general election.
