SHAH ALAM, 23 Nov: The State Government has stressed that almost the entire Selangor Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Manifesto made during the 12th General Elections (GE-12) has been accomplished by focusing on the people’s welfare.
Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid said that it is estimated that more than 80 percent of the manifesto, which includes social programs that the State Government, has been implemented gradually since 2008 until now.
He firmly said that the state’s economic growth has been the focus to ensure that all promises made in the manifesto can be implemented as soon as possible and that the results of the state development can be felt by every citizen of this state.
“In fact the whole manifesto or rather all programs that have promised by PR during the 2008 general election can be wholly realised to benefit the people.”
“From the figures we have already implemented more than 80 percent. In fact, if we look at and examine the Umno-BN manifesto in GE 2008; include fighting corruption, till now, such activities are still prevalent.”
“The implementation of this manifesto has taken place, but it will take time to be fully realised,” he said during his winding up speech of the debate on the 2013 Budget during the State Assembly (DNS) sitting today.
Earlier, DNS Opposition Leader , Datuk Mohamad Satim Diman claimed that the State Government had failed in fulfilling the GE-12 and that in fact, new issues have risen highlighting the shortcomings of the Selangor PR government administration.
Besides characterising the 2013 Selangor Budget as described by Abdul Khalid in his retort, Satim said that there are still many issues that have not been answered involving the welfare of the people in Selangor.
