KUALA LUMPUR: The young generation (Gen Y) nationwideÂ will have an opportunity to meet with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun RazakÂ and other national leaders on Nov 9.
A ‘Karnival Genexter Bakti 2014’, organised by Welfare Organisation of WivesÂ of Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti), is to be held on that day at DataranÂ Putrajaya.
About 30,000 youths are expected to gather at the two-day carnival whichÂ will begin on Nov 8, in conjunction with the annual programme of the Wives ofÂ Barisan Nasional Elected Representatives.
Bakti president Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor said the event would enable the GenÂ Y to interact and get to know the prime minister and national leaders better.
“There will be no VIP table at the event, where we will have our meal withÂ the Gen Y in a relaxed environment … we’ll be mingling with them. There willÂ be no formalities,” she told Bernama.
She said the carnival would be a platform for the Gen Y to engage inÂ positive activities that could enhance their leadership ability, lifestyle,Â talent and potential, and to become an informed generation.
Rosmah, who is the prime minister’s wife, said such a programme could spurÂ the Gen Y towards self-empowerment, and prepare them for their role as theÂ country’s next echelon of leaders.
“Besides that, we want to strengthen the spirit of camaraderie andÂ volunteerism between Bakti and the Gen Y,” she said.
