PH manifesto contains unrealisti­c promises – Maslan


SANDAKAN: Pakatan Harapan's (PH) manifesto contains unrealisti­c promises, said Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Ahmad Maslan.

Ahmad said the PH manifesto is unrealisti­c, and took as an example one of the key points: To abolish the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

“They (PH) want to abolish GST and go back to SST (Sales Services Tax). Why would they want to go from six percent of GST to ten percent of SST? For imported fruits, dried fish and anchovies, GST imposes zero percent tax while SST had five percent tax? Why would they want to go from zero percent to five percent?

“That is a stupid move (itu kerja bodoh). Wait until you hear the Barisan Nasional's manifesto. It is far better than PH's manifesto. BN's manifesto will include youth, women, and each state in Malaysia,” he said to Umno Kinabatang­an members during the Umno Informatio­n Technology Bureau Chairman Malaysia programme here yesterday.

The programme was held nationwide in 191 districts, and it ended in Beluran, yesterday.

Ahmad also encouraged those who wish to become a candidate in the next election to be active in social media, and make full use of the platform to get close to the people, especially the younger generation.

He said the social media should also be utilised by Umno members to read and correct fake news about Barisan Nasional, especially fake news and allegation­s that were spread by the opposition.

Also present were Umno Kinabatang­an deputy chief Pg Abdul Azis Pg Damsah, Umno Kinabatang­an secretary Wan Daut Kahar, Umno Kinabatang­an Women deputy chief Sapariah Radin and Umno Kinabatang­an Youth deputy chief Khairuniss­a Abd Aziz.
