KOTA KINABALU – Communication and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak today called on the public to fly the Jalur Gemilang, no matter where they are, to show their love for the country, especially during this National Month celebration.
“In other countries, people are fighting to have a sovereign state. In Malaysia, we are lucky that we have gained Independence. This must be
appreciated,” he said at the get-together event with the ministry’s staff at the Communication and Multimedia Ministry Complex here today.
Salleh said the theme for the National Month celebration this year, ‘Sehati Sejiwa’, was also apt as it called for all quarters to stay united with mutual respect to prevent disputes, misunderstandings and allegations for sake of the nation.
Meanwhile, the minister also called on all departments and agencies under the ministry in Sabah to review their programmes to ensure that the implementation was suitable with the local situation.
For example, he said the approach taken to disseminate information about government policies to people in the rural areas must be different from the approach taken to reach out to people in other areas, so that it would be understood well by the targeted groups. – BERNAMA
