The BN government is not perfect but it is willing to change and correct whatever mistakes made in the past, said Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
“Yes, we are not a perfect government. I agree with you that there is no government in this world which is perfect. We made mistakes.
“But, believe me, with the present leadership of Prime Minister Najib (Abdul Razak)… he is a leader who is willing to change and correct whatever mistakes we have done, so all of us can move forward.
“So, I don’t understand why the rakyat still doubtful about what we have done,” he told some 100 voters and coalition members from Kepong and Segambut after officiating a RM23.38 million road bridge at Bulatan Mergastua in Kepong.
Tengku Adnan also urged the people to open their eyes and be grateful for the peace and prosperity in the country.
“I hope they, more or less, will open their eyes to see what the government had done because most Malaysians are not grateful that the country is peaceful and prosperous, (thus) they can earn a living and lead a comfortable live.
“They just simply want the country to fall. I advise them to think twice as they will suffer losses if they follow their hearts,” he told the media later.
Earlier, Tengku Adnan asked those present to spread the word on the development brought about by the government, and also the “rubbish talks” by the opposition.
“Wake up. Don’t listen to the opposition who spread slander as it has become a game of perception lately,” he added.
The BN secretary-general reminded the people to continue to ensure the country remains united.
“If you love Malaysia, please tell other citizens who have forgotten or tend to forget that the achievements were due to proper planning by the government. It is our duty as citizens to protect this country. Please, let us unite and without unity, we will fall,” Tengku Adnan stressed.
Kepong Umno division chief Rizuan Abdul Hamid, who attended the ceremony, urged the voters to support BN in the coming general election.
“I urge the voters (in Kepong) to ‘give face’ to the government and express their gratitude for its sacrifices,” he said, adding that he was hopeful part of the voters in the constituency would swing back to BN.
Meanwhile, Tengku Adnan declined to comment on Umno deputy minister Tajuddin Abdul Rahman’s son who was only charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955, where a RM100 would be imposed.
“Why you ask me? Don’t ask me, I don’t know,” he said, adding that this has nothing to do with Umno.
Tengku Adnan also declined to talk about Umno’s advice to minister Nazri Abdul Aziz who was denied by the police to debate with former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
“I don’t like and I don’t want to say Malaysiakini,” he snapped before leaving in his official vehicle.
