Govt’s promises made good
> More than 80% of Barisan Nasional manifesto fulfilled, says Ku Nan
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.
