LIPIS – The Barisan Nasional government must be given the mandate to continue its unfinished rural development agenda, said Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The Prime Minister said the agenda was close to his heart because it was initiated by his late father and second prime minister Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, and he wanted a fresh mandate to continue the agenda.
“It is pointless to talk until one froths at the mouth or sheds tears of blood because it will be too late if Putrajaya falls into the hands of another party.
“I sit in Putrajaya but I am aware that it is due to people here in Lipis. This is our political base, and the No.1 rule in politics is to look after your political base,” he said at a meet-the-people session at Dewan Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah here today.
Also present were Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob, Lipis UMNO Division chief Datuk Abdul Rahman Mohamad, who was the Lipis MP in the 13th parliament, and the Lipis BN leadership. – BERNAMA
