People now enjoying changes made by BN government, says Najib
MALACCA, June 23 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the people are now beginning to enjoy the benefits from the transformation programmes carried out by the Barisan Nasional government in the past three years.
The prime minister said the promises made by the BN government in developing the country and helping the people had been fulfilled through the various programmes implemented during the period.
“Within the last three years alone, people are saying real change is taking place... imagine if we have another five years, certainly we can make more changes, thus believe in our promises, promises which are fulfilled,” Najib (picture) said in his speech at the launching of the Malacca UTC (Urban Transformation Centre) and “Jelajah Janji Ditepati” in Jalan Hang Tuah here today.
He said the implementation capability of the BN government had been proven all this while.
He said the implementation of programmes including the 1 Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M), 1 Malaysia Public Housing (PR1MA), 1 Malaysia Clinic and the UTC and Rural Transformation Centre (RTC) proved that the government had succeeded in implementing all that it had planned.
“We must have the intellectual capacity to think of new ideas because in the 21st century, anyone with better ideas will get the support of the people, so we have ideas to help the rakyat. Not only did we implement BR1M, PR1MA, we also have the idea so that in the centre of this town we also implement urban transformation,” he said.
On the other hand, Najib said the opposition made many promises that it could not fulfil that the people in the states it ruled were facing difficulties.
“We cannot accept people who make promises but don’t fulfil them, people who lie... we as a government must fulfil our promises,” he said.
Najib said the government planned to implement PR1MA in Malacca to enable people in the state to buy houses at prices 20 to 30 per cent cheaper than market prices. — Bernama
