KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional has proven itself to be a government that has contributed vastly to the people’s welfare, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (pic).
Najib, who is Barisan chairman, said there is no other Government like Barisan which has managed the economy well.
He said the recent billion-dollar investments from Germany and China were a reflection of a well-managed economy by the Umno-led Government.
“But there are those who are not happy with what we do. When there are no investments coming in, they said we failed.
“When we bring in investments, they said we pawned off the country,” said Najib, who is Umno president.
Najib's fiercest critic, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, had previously said Malaysia’s sovereignty was at stake following China’s RM144bil investment in Malaysia as it seeks territorial claims over South China Sea.
Najib also debunked claims by several Opposition parties of Malaysia heading towards bankruptcy.
He said Malaysia’s track record had been acknowledged by international bodies and agencies.
“Are we a cruel government if we are concerned about the people’s wellbeing, where we provided Urban Transformation Centres (UTC) that operates seven days a week, from 8am to 10pm?
“Moreover, for healthcare, everything is almost free at Government hospitals.
“I would like to ask you, what other governments provide such services?"Where? No other than Barisan Nasional and Umno-led Government,” said Najib in his presidential address at the Umno general assembly.
