BN promises racing circuit for Kedah youngsters

Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak says the project will be included in the BN manifesto.
ALOR SETAR: The construction of a racing circuit for youngsters in Kedah will be inserted in the Barisan Nasional manifesto for the 13th general election, particularly for this state, said Najib
Tun Razak.
The prime minister said the current PAS-led state government had promised a racing circuit for the youngsters but had done nothing over the last five years.
“Where is the circuit? I want to promise that we will insert the construction of the racing circuit in Kedah in the manifesto. Our promises are fulfilled, unlike the opposition’s,” he said at a gathering of youngsters in Kedah at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium in Suka Menanti, here.
Najib said there was also a proposal from the Kedah Youth Council for the government to help youngsters who wanted to get married, with the pre-marriage course.
“We will also insert in the manifesto to bear the RM100 cost for each course, on condition that it is for the first marriage and a one-off aid. I will approve the allocation.
“There’s much more that we want to do. Wait for the manifesto that we will launch specially for Kedah. We will show the people. The time has come. Five years is enough [under opposition rule]. The time for change has come,” he said.
The prime minister said the Barisan Nasional government listened to the voice of the youngsters and their lot would be better off in the future under a BN government.
Najib said the BN government had policies compatible to youngsters and the government transformation programme was aimed at providing a legacy for youngsters.
He said the BN government did not tell the youngsters to resort to doing things detrimental to the country.
“I just returned from Gaza, Palestine. I was able to see the destruction of a country, but brought about by their enemy. Let’s not damage our own country. We will become a developed nation in seven years. This is our promise,” he said.
Among others present were Housing and Local Government Minister Chor Chee Heung, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Jamil Khir Baharom, Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin, Kedah Umno liaison committee chairman Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah and Kedah Umno liaison committee deputy chairman Mukhriz Mahathir.
The gathering of youngsters, which will be on from today to Saturday, consists of various programmes, such as the BN Youth Job Fair with 83 companies offering more than 4,500 jobs, exhibitions by government and private agencies, and trading stalls.
