TUMPAT: The Federal government does not sideline Opposition-held states when in comes to education because it is far too valuable to be made a political pawn, said the Prime Minister.
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said eventhough Kelantan has been under the opposition PAS rule for more than 20 years, students in the state enjoy similar benefits as their counterpart elsewhere.
"We may have differing views in politics and we may argue when it comes to issues.
"But we realise that education is far to valuable to be politicised.
"My presence here today is to reiterate this government's stand," he said during his day-long visit to Kelantan on Sunday.
Najib pointed out that because of the similar attention given to the state, Kelantan has emerged second best in the last UPSR examination.
Najib was speaking at the presentation of the RM100 school aid to 3,274 students from three schools here.
He also launched the Janji di Tepati programme and had a walk-about at Pasir Siti Khadijah.
