BN machinery must step up game for bigger victory in GE14: Najib

KANGAR: The Barisan Nasional (BN) machinery must up its game to ensure a bigger victory for the coalition in the 14th General Election (GE14), said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said with a bigger mandate, he was confident the country would achieve greater progress, the fruits of which would be enjoyed by the people.

"We can win but we want a strong government. We cannot take anything for granted and that is why we must work doubly hard.

"With BN's clear-cut policies, capability and ability to deliver, we can assure victory (for the coalition in GE14)," he said when launching the Perlis BN 2018 machinery at Dewan 2020 here today.

Also present were Perlis BN chairman Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim, Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man, Perlis MCA chairman Datuk Chua Tee Yong and Perlis MIC chairman S. Vengadasamy.

He said Perlis which is a BN stronghold was never neglected and was always given attention in all aspects including development.

"Never before in the history of Perlis the state was given 100% allocation for People’s Housing Projects (PPR) in its three parliamentary constituencies. Not even Pahang (Najib’s home state) got 100%,” he said.

This morning Najib had announced that 1,400 units of new PPR houses would be built throughout Perlis.

Najib then announced an allocation of RM9 million for minor projects in the three parliamentary constituencies, which are Padang Besar, Kangar and Arau. — Bernama
