IPOH: Barisan Nasional must deliver on its promises because it is accountable to the rakyat, Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said Sunday.

He said the people who voted for the Barisan-led government expected it to keep its promises.

"The Government Transformation Plan and Economic Transformation Plan introduced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak are our commitment to the people," he said.

"We are sincere in developing the nation as a whole and bringing positive changes to the lives of the people," he said, adding that these were not the coalition's tactics to fish for votes.

He said Opposition could promise the moon to voters but was not obliged to fulfill its promises.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 24th Ipoh Timur Umno division delegates' meeting at the state Umno building here Sunday, the party vice-president said Umno did not adopt an extreme approach to ensure its interests were protected.

"We do not simply use our power to implement fatwa that dictates what people can or cannot do," he said.
