KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 (Bernama) — The government is committed to deliver all its promises to the Indian community, and had been doing just that over the last three years, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The prime minister said the results were clear and the impact was positive with longstanding problems having been overcome whilst new issues were being addressed.
“In looking to the future and in celebrating new beginnings which a new year offers, let us build a partnership based on trust so that, together, we can uplift the community.
“I cannot do this alone and so, I need each and every one of you to walk with me in this journey to bring transformation and the light of hope to all Malaysians,” he said.
Najib said this in his latest entry entitled, ‘Ugadi 2012’, in his blog www.1Malaysia.com in conjunction with the celebration of New Year or ‘Ugadi’ for the Malaysian Telugu community tomorrow.
In realising the 1Malaysia concept, Najib said the Telugus played an important role in working with the government to address issues faced by the people.
He said the government was constantly engaging directly with the people and implementing various programmes to transform the country.
“In all our efforts, we are firmly committed to the principle that under the Malaysian sky, no community will be left out,” he said.
He said in Malaysia, ‘Ugadi’ was a major celebration in the Telugu community and was a time for families to come together to mark a new beginning.
“As the Malaysian Telugu community celebrates its New Year or ‘Ugadi’, we are all once again, reminded of the richness of our country s heritage.
“I take this opportunity to wish ‘Ugadi Shubhakanshalu’ to all Malaysian Telugus,” he said.
