New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Pres­i­dent of the Char­ity and Wel­fare Body of Wives of Min­is­ters and Deputy Min­is­ters (Bakti), Datin Seri Ros­mah Man­sor, has called on wives of the na­tion’s lead­ers to go down to the ground to meet the peo­ple in con­stituen­cies served by their hus­bands.

Ros­mah said in pre­par­ing for the up­com­ing 14th Gen­eral Elec­tion (GE14), it was cru­cial for lead­ers’ wives to see and hear for them­selves the prob­lems faced by the peo­ple.

“To pro­vide ap­pro­pri­ate as­sis­tance to the peo­ple, we must go down and meet them per­son­ally.

“And while go­ing down to the ground, al­ways re­mem­ber to be sin­cere to the peo­ple,” Ros­mah said in her speech at the open­ing of Bakti’s 40th an­nual gen­eral meet­ing (AGM) at Ban­gu­nan Bakti Siti Has­mah here yes­ter­day.

The AGM was opened by Deputy Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Datuk Dr Mary Yap Kain Ching.

Ros­mah called for Bakti mem­bers to strengthen the sol­i­dar­ity among them­selves.

“I also hope that Bakti mem­bers will im­prove them­selves and keep abreast of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy, such as so­cial me­dia.”
