Reject BN’s Putrajaya, PKR urges youth

May 29, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR, May 29 — Young voters should push for true political reforms by rejecting Barisan Nasional (BN) and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s “false transformations,” PKR has charged.

PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar(picture) said today that the only way corruption and power abuse in this country could be stopped was through the ballot box — by voting for a change in the federal government.

“Now what the youth must defend is not the Putrajaya of political and economic pirates but real change in Putrajaya that starts with political reforms. While BN continues to offer fool’s gold, we in Pakatan Rakyat (PR) offer real hope and real prosperity for a Better Malaysia for all.

The youth must unite for a new Putrajaya,” she said in a statement, in response to Najib’s call to youths yesterday to defend Putrajaya from the opposition if they wished to see Malaysia transformed into a developed country.

Nurul Izzah dismissed Najib’s remarks as a “sure sign of desperation” which was a meaningless call for the country’s transformation as BN had failed to address many other matters relating to power abuse, corruption, economic mismanagement, broken scholarship promises and overpriced water concessionaire debt bail-out.

“Needless to say, the list goes on beyond belief,” she added.

The Lembah Pantai MP questioned why the government could not invest in local and overseas scholarships for all SPM top scorers if they could bail out Selangor’s water debts and continue to subsidise Independent Power Producers (IPPs).

“Is it because the other payments go into their own pockets, while scholarships go into the pockets of our deserving students who need not pay commissions to anyone?” she asked.
