KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 31 — Information Communication and Culture Minister, Datuk Seri Rais Yatim described the people’s support in facing all challenges as proof that they were “warriors” who loved independence and peace.
“One mind, one direction, one spirit, one goal. That’s why each seat in this stadium is filled by a ‘warrior’,” he said during his speech at the 55th Merdeka Gathering: Promises Fulfilled in conjunction with the Independence Day celebrations at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium here tonight.
Rais attributed the success of each government programme, including this year’s dynamic Independence Day celebrations throughout the month, to these “warriors”.
“This morning’s parade successfully portrayed the National Key Results Area and tonight we display the young generation’s independence spirit by supporting and appreciating the government.
“I wish to record my appreciation and gratitude to all parties, be they non-governmental or voluntary who participated throughout this Merdeka Day programme,” he said.
An estimated 150,000 Malaysians of all races packed every inch of the stadium to rejoice in tonight’s celebrations, which included various patriotic programmes. — Bernama
