For the next three days, Kedah will be experiencing a carnival-like atmosphere as various events have been lined-up in conjunction with the launch of the state-level Juara Rakyat programme by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on Saturday.
Fifteen Kedah Umno "godfathers" - comprising three vice-presidents and members of the party's Supreme Council - will also flock to the state to participate in the various events.
The programme will start with the launch of Umno Youth's electoral roll by Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, who is also Kedah Umno Liaison Committee chairman, at Pekan Simpang Empat, Kerpan at 5pm on Friday.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, on the other hand, is scheduled to attend a "leader-meets-the people" programme at Sekolah Menengah Hutan Kampung the same evening.
According to the programme itinerary issued by Kedah Umno Thursday, Muhyiddin, who is also Deputy Umno President, will launch the Juara Rakyat programme at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sanglang at about 11am.
In the evening, Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, is scheduled to meet up with teachers in Kubang Pasu and the local community in Kota Siputeh.
