PUTRAJAYA: Civil servants have been advised not to put themselves in any position that can cause their integrity to be questioned by the people. 

The advice came from Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi at the Prime Minister’s Department Hari Raya open house here yesterday. 

“What is most important in civil service is that everyone work together as a team. However, this does not mean that civil servants can shift their responsibility to someone else. 

“Don’t pass the buck,” he said. 

The Prime Minister said civil servants should always improve their performance and be proud of their contribution. 

On the open house, he said, such occasion could foster close relations between civil servants. 

NO PROBLEM AT ALL: Abdullah leaving in heavy rain after attending the Hari Raya gathering organised by the Prime Minister's Department at Putrajaya, Wednesday.

“In this country Hari Raya is not only for the Muslims, but is also celebrated by people of all races,” he said. 

Heavy rain did not dampen the spirit of the PM’s Department staff who came in droves to visit the various stalls set up for the occasion.
