JELI (Kelantan), March 2 (Bernama) — Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today asked the people of PAS-led Kelantan to give Barisan Nasional (BN) the mandate in the next general election, and pledged to solve all the problems they faced under the PAS administration.
The prime minister said a BN government would be able to solve the problems associated with clean water supply, people’s estates, infrastructure facilities and housing.
“The Barisan Nasional government, if given the mandate, pledges to solve the state’s woes related to clean water supply, people’s estates, infrastructure facilities and housing,” he said, inviting applause from about 20,000 people at a gathering at the Jeli campus of Universiti Malaysia Kelantan, here.
Najib, who was on a day-long visit to Kelantan, urged the people to support the “Red Wave” movement to enable the BN to recapture the state.
He said a BN government would transform the landscape of the state through various forms of development and make Kelantan progressive.
“God willing, the Kelantan landscape will transform, but we will be driven by Islam and will safeguard moral knowledge,” he said.
Najib said it is evident that PAS is incapable of solving the people’s problems despite administrating the state for more than 20 years.
PAS does not have an agenda to bring development for the people and the state as its leaders are obsessed with merely winning the elections, he said.
“We want Kelantan to be progressive. Many people of Kelantan are intellectuals. This is the place where we want to bring advancement to Muslims,” he said, urging the people to support Jeli MP and International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed in bringing transformation to Kelantan.
Najib also showered praises on Mustapa, whom he addressed as “Datuk Pa”, and said the Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee chairman was honest and hardworking and had brought much investment to Malaysia, amounting to RM105.6 billion in the manufacturing, services and primary sectors last year.
At the event, the prime minister handed out 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) to people in the parliamentary constituency of Jeli.
