Publication of the book on Najib to refute slanders against government

(Bernama) – The publication of the book on the trials and tribulations faced by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak during his first year as the sixth Malaysian Prime Minister is seen to be able to refute the various slanders made by certain groups against the government and national leaders.

Describing the launching of the book as timely, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the book entitled “Najib Tun Razak Melakar Transformasi Malaysia” (Najib Tun Razak Draws Up Malaysia’s Transformation) was capable of changing the mindset and misperception of certain groups who had doubted the Prime Minister’s sincerity in turning Malaysia into a developed nation.

“I congratulate the Malaysian Information Department for its constant endeavours in publishing books carrying the theme of nationhood which give clarifications to the people on government policies. This is important because without the people’s support, any policy or programme implemented by the government will not succeed even if it has noble objectives and aims to bring prosperity to the people. It is worse still when any government policy or programme is manipulated by certain groups purely for personal political gains,” he said at the launching of the book on Najib, here today.  
Also present at the function were Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim, secretary-general of the ministry Datuk Wira Kamaruddin Siaraf and director-general of information Datuk Abdullah Morad.

Muhyiddin said the book clearly analysed the topics on the 1Malaysia Concept, New Economic Model (NEM), National Key Result Areas (NKRA), and Key Performance Indicators (KPI) which were not clearly understood by the people previously.

He said all the policies introduced by the prime minister aimed at bringing development to the country and to enable the people to live in greater prosperity and to be united in facing challenges that came with globalisation.

The 293-page book was published by the Ministry of Information Communication and Culture and sold at RM98 each.
