BUKIT GANTANG, Jan 14 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said public confidence in the Barisan Nasional (BN) leadership at the federal and state levels is growing because the coalition fulfills its pledges according to its capability.

He said the people realised that the BN was not a government that liked to play politics that was populist in nature nor made promises that were unrealistic.

“What we are capable of doing, we will do and what we promise, we will implement as the government,” he said when launching the nationwide BN State Assemblymen’s Retreat Programme at Jalan Simpang, here Friday.

He said the promises were proven through the various aid given to the people such as the 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M), the existence of the 1Malaysia People’s Shop (KR1M) and the 1Malaysia People’s Menu, the granting of subsidies in the various sectors such as the petrol subsidy.

In addition, Najib also hinted that he would announce a ‘windfall’ for the settler community soon as well as several other incentives for the people.

“The quantum I will not disclose yet, when the time comes I will make the announcement. Let there be a little suspense,” he said.

However, he said there were quarters that tried to deny the efforts of the government in helping the people.

He said the BN government constantly strived for the prosperity of the people and ‘did not know how to spin’.

“That is their (opposition’s) politics, always spinning, everything (that we do) is wrong. What we are doing for the people, they want to destroy it,” he said.

He said that under the BN government since the country’s independence, a son of a fisherman had succeeded to become a Menteri Besar to lead a state.

“Don’t insult the Menteri Besar (MB). During his childhood days, he used to go to sea. We should be proud that the son of a fisherman has become a MB,” he said referring to Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir.

Najib also expressed his commitment to continue to work hard as the Prime Minister for the sake of the people.

“I have told my wife that my days are getting longer and my nights shorter. But it is alright for the sake of the people,” he added.
