Fourth Prime Minister and Third BN Chairman Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad will be campaigning in Jerlun tonight. The venue is Dataran Pak Su Ma’Yeh, Padang Sera, Kodiang, Kedah. Present will also be BN candidate for P005 Jerlun Dato’ Othman Aziz, N03 Kota Siputeh Dato’ Abu Hassan Shariff and N04 Ayer Hitam Dato’ Mukhriz Mahathir.
Majority of Kedahans are tired of five years lackluster attitude and behaviour of the Kedah State Government under PAS and stagnant growth. That is not withstanding the fact Kedah Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Azizan Abdul Razak is having difficult time with some of the Kedah PAS leaders, which include some of the Excos and this inadvertently affected the policies, decisions and operations of the Kedah State Government.
Kedah State Government income grew, but only two sector recorded growth; increase by 100% from entertainment and timber. The state now in debt in excess of RM 3 billion.
Barisan Nasional Kedah is bringing the message of ‘Transformation’ and is confident of growing the economic cake for more opportunities to be tapped by more quarters. Two mega projects have been identified if they manage to wrest the state from PAS, which is the Hydrocarbon Hub and Rubber Hub.
The aspiration of the winds of change is evidently clear.
Kedahans want a better deal from the 13GE.
