KAJANG: Voters should not fall for PKR’s promises in its manifesto for the Kajang by-election because the Pakatan Rakyat state government has failed to solve the rakyat’s problems, said the Urban Wellbeing, Housing, and Local Government Minister.
Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan said the state government had promised many things, including solving water problems.
“But the Federal Government has to cooperate to end the water woes in the state. If they cannot do that, why should they come up with a separate manifesto (from the state manifesto)?” he told reporters at a meet-and-greet session with Kajang Fire and Rescue Department officers here yesterday.
Urging voters not to cast their ballots based on their emotions, Abdul Rahman said they should instead choose the best person to work for the rakyat.
He pointed out that although a win by Barisan Nasional candidate Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun in Sunday’s polls would not change the state government, this would allow her to show how the Federal Government could better serve the Kajang folk.
Abdul Rahman also gave his assurance that the Federal Government would bring development and adopt Kajang as its “foster child” should the people choose Barisan.
“There are a lot of issues that need to be solved, including traffic, security and cleanliness, which is linked to high number of dengue cases in the area,” he said.
Meanwhile, consumers, including people in Kajang, can look forward to cheaper essential food items – by up to 50% – at the Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia under a collaboration between the Domestic Trade, Consumerism and Co-operative and Agriculture and Agro-based ministries.
