Selangor Voters Can’t Wait To Change Govt, Says Muhyiddin
KLANG, Sept 23 – Voters in Selangor are hoping that the next state election will be called soon so that they can vote out the PKR-DAP-Pas state government, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Muhyiddin, who is also Barisan Nasional (BN) deputy chairman and UMNO deputy president, said Selangor voters now knew the difference of having an alternative coalition in power and were asking him when the next election would be held.
“Asked why, they said they could no longer stand the Pakatan Rakyat (PKR-DAP-Pas) government,” he said when closing a three-day retreat for BN assemblymen from throughout the country here today.
Muhyiddin said the approach taken by the assemblymen in living with constituents in 73 voting centres throughout Selangor had given the BN leadership a better picture on the actual situation on the ground and that this would help the coalition to formulate effective strategies in facing the next election.
He also said although Selangor was now under the opposition, the BN under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would not neglect the welfare of the people of Selangor.
The Federal government would continue to look after the needs of the less fortunate and those who lacked basic amenities, provide job opportunities and focus on socio-economic issues, he said.
At the function, Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, announced a RM29 allocation for the building of a new school to be called Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bukit Kapar which will replace Sek Men Keb Meru here. SMK Meru is overcrowded with some 5,000 students.
He also presented aid totalling RM6.68 million to 34 religious schools in Selangor.
Earlier, he had presented aid amounting to RM200,000 to the Kampung Budiman mosque here.
