WE DELIVER: BN has introduced many initiatives which helped people, says Najib
SHAH ALAM: The Pakatan Rakyat-led Selangor state government had consistently failed to live up to its promises like reducing assessment rates and providing allowances to single mothers.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the people of Selangor had been taken in by the opposition's lies and promises, during the 2008 general election, and were now paying the price.
"Today, we ask where are the allowances (the opposition) promised? Why have the assessment rates not been lowered and why have so many businesses here suffered?" asked Najib at the launch of youth organisation Waris Malaya and Sahabat Barisan Nasional (Friends of Barisan Nasional), near here, yesterday.
In contrast, Najib said, the BN had introduced many initiatives which have changed the people's lives for the better.
This included 1Malaysia Housing Programme (Pr1ma), the Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia (Kr1m) and 1Malaysia health clinics, while 300,000 employment opportunities had been created under the government's various transformation programmes.
Addressing the 2,000-strong crowd, Najib also said Selangor was now heading towards a water crisis, after the state government blocked the building of the Langat 2 water treatment plant.
"This is an issue which should not have been politicised, even though the state and the federal governments are led by different parties.
"How can Selangor become a developed state if the people's water supply is constantly interrupted?"
Najib said Malaysia was heading towards the era of transformation, not reformation, referring to the opposition's slogan of reformasi (reformation).
Reformasi, he said, had brought nothing but trouble and unfulfilled promises for the people.
"Transformation has given the people development, employment, and raised the country to greater heights.
"Everything the government has done has been to help the people."
On the programme, Najib said Waris Malaya proved that the youths still supported the BN government.
"Who says youths do not support the BN? Isn't Waris Malaya made up of youths?"
