KOTA BAHARU, July 2 (Bernama) — Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today that Kelantan has “enough ingredients” to be an advanced state.

However, Kelantan must have the right direction and a government capable of realising developed state status, the Prime Minister added.

“We believe that this state is blessed and it can go forward not just in football but in the socio-economic field,” he said at a meeting with about 100 facebook friends here which was also attended by Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen.

“We do not want any state to be left out and not benefiting from the transformation of the nation. We have prepared a road map for bringing the entire country to the developed nation era,” Najib said.

This was the sixth meeting Najib had held with online friends. The previous sessions were in Penang, Sarawak, Johor, Terengganu and Sabah.

Najib said he now had 760,000 facebook friends and interacted with 160,000 others through twitter.

He expressed happiness with his visit to Kelantan where he was received by more than 20,000 people in Pasir Puteh and not less than 15,000 in Machang.
