'Express feelings of pride and love for the country'
KUALA LUMPUR -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak urged the people to express their feelings of pride and love for the country, which he described as peaceful and prosperous, in conjunction with the 49th anniversary of Malaysia Day today.
"Long Live Malaysia, Selamat Hari Malaysia and Salam 1Malaysia," he said in his latest post on his 1Malaysia blog.
He said the Malaysia Day celebration this year was most significant because, for the first time, the meaningful and historic day was being celebrated on a large scale in Sarawak.
The celebration, scheduled to be held at the site of the old Bintulu airport, will be launched by Sarawak Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Abang Muhammad Salahuddin Abang Barieng.
Najib, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud are scheduled to attend the celebration. -- Bernama
