Prime Minister completes two-day visit to Kelantan where he opened new hospital.
KUALA LUMPUR: The actions of a former leader who punished the Kelantan people by reducing the state’s budget allocation is not the way for Prime Minister Najib Razak.
In his latest entry in his blog NajibRazak.com titled “Development of Kelantan”, Najib said as a leader he must be fair to all as demanded by religion.
“A former leader punished the people of Kelantan for not supporting him by reducing the allocation. For me, the people of Kelantan need help, just like other Malaysians.
Certain parties have questioned why he often visited Kelantan and had given so many projects to the state. Najib just ended a two-day visit to Kelantan.
Najib opened a new hospital in Bachok costing RM140 million and announced the construction of the Kuala Krai Hospital costing RM300 million.
He also announced the construction of the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) from Gombak (Kuala Lumpur) to Wakaf Baru (Tumpat, Kelantan).
“When completed, the ECRL will cut travel time to only four hours, and will bring multiplier effects to the lives of the people, provide jobs and improve the standard of living.”
Najib also visited the homes of Mek Nab Awang, 72, Rohana Che Ali, 52, and Aliza – three poor families who live in dilapidated houses.
“As part of the Jom Bantu Rakyat campaign, the three women will get new houses that are more comfortable.
“As prime minister, I want to bring change to the country, and this includes the state of Kelantan,” he added.
