KUANTAN: RM20,000 in cash awaits the Mat Rempit who ride the slowest.
The state government is organising a special "race" for more than 1,600 youths it had identified as Mat Rempit.
Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob said all of them would be invited to take part in the race.
The race would be divided into several categories where riders have to ride for about 50 metres.
"They can ride just any way they like.
"But they have to use their skills to be the last to reach the finishing line without falling to become the winner," he said at the joint opening of the Umno delegates' meeting for Kuantan and Indera Mahkota divisions here yesterday.
Adnan said "this first of its kind" race was part of the state government's effort to get closer to the public, especially those involved in social problems.
He said Umno leaders must organise more programmes that the public and grassroots leaders can participate in.
"We must work hard as if the general election will be held tomorrow," he said.
To ensure victory, he said Umno must ensure that its members remained with the party.
At the same time, they must also try to woo fence-sitters and counter allegations hurled by opposition parties.
How stupid a minister can be? I wonder what is the benefits out of one race?
Making side income for the next GE?
Maybe he is trying to follow suit the king of Rempits, Khairy Jamaluddin (KJ) in idolising the Mat Rempits on the pretext of 'trying' to help them to take a good course in life.
It's a joke.
An obvious show of stupidity.
