Day Two: Najib's 1Malaysia Walk
Day Two: PM Najib Tun Razak hit the streets of the capital with a visit to Chinatown in Jalan Petaling, Kampung Kerinchi and Brickfields. The walkabout is to emphasise his One Malaysia Agenda. The visits caught many by surprise as even the press was not informed of the walkabout but enough reporters caught wind of the visits.
Earlier, Najib met Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his family members where they announced their return to Umno. It is an important gesture as his return would mean reuniting Umno and more importantly, an endorsement of Najib's administration.
He has already scored an important point when Abdullah Ahmad Badawi assured him of his support of the leadership. Najib, in return, said he would seek the advice of the two former prime ministers.
