PETALING JAYA: Barisan Na­sional (BN) has ful­filled more than 80% of the prom­ises made in its 2013 gen­eral elec­tion man­i­festo, said its sec­re­tary­gen­eral Datuk Seri Tengku Ad­nan Tengku Man­sor ( pix).

Stress­ing that BN had al­ways kept its prom­ises, Tengku Ad­nan said the ques­tion was whether the rakyat re­alised the rul­ing coali­tion had worked hard to ful­fil its man­i­festo.

“We are a re­spon­si­ble gov­ern­ment and will try to com­plete what we promised,” he said.

“Only 18% to 19% is left to be ful­filled, but I be­lieve what­ever we said in our man­i­festo will be ac­com­plished,” he said in a video posted on Umno On­line.

Tengku Ad­nan, who is also Fed­eral Ter­ri­to­ries min­is­ter, said BN would co­op­er­ate with the Im­ple­men­ta­tion Co­or­di­na­tion Unit, which is un­der the Prime Min­is­ter’s Depart­ment, to in­form Malaysians on the work done by the coali­tion since win­ning the last elec­tion.

He also crit­i­cised the Op­po­si­tion for fre­quently deny­ing BN’s ef­forts in de­vel­op­ing the na­tion.

“They will only talk but do not do their work,” Tengku Ad­nan said.

He also urged Malaysians not be swayed by the Op­po­si­tion’s prom­ises.

“We hope the rakyat will re­alise that they are all talk. They only want to top­ple the gov­ern­ment and be in power,” he said.

Cit­ing op­po­si­tion-held Se­lan­gor as an ex­am­ple, Tengku Ad­nan said the state gov­ern­ment could not re­solve its wa­ter woes even af­ter be­ing in power for so long.

“Al­though the fed­eral ter­ri­tory (Kuala Lumpur) does not have its own wa­ter depart­ment, we solved the wa­ter prob­lem by send­ing wa­ter tanks to res­i­den­tial ar­eas,” he said.
