MACHANG: Barisan Nasional will make good on all the pledges listed in its election manifesto, vowed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
He said this was in contrast with the Opposition, which felt that there was no need to fulfil pledges in their own election manifesto.
Although the Selangor Mentri Besar had stated that an election manifesto was not a “promise” to the rakyat, Najib said that for Barisan, this was not the case.
“Barisan will fulfil pledges made in our election manifesto. The manifesto is our promise and we will deliver. I ask you, the people of Kelantan, what are the things that you want for yourselves and the state.
“We will include these in the election manifesto and we will deliver if Barisan wins in Kelantan. I want to see changes in the state and we will bring the changes,” he said during a Hari Raya gathering at SMK Hamzah here yesterday.
The Prime Minister also teased the huge crowd, which had turned up for the gathering, by saying that judging by their size and enthusiasm, he might as well “call for the general election tomorrow”.
The people, he added, had begun to realise who they could depend on for their betterment and the future of their children.
“Everywhere I go, I can feel the winds of change. The people now know they cannot depend on the Opposition for their future,” he said.
