Najib begins meeting with 135 Barisan Nasional MPs

(The Straits Times) – THE Prime Minister held his marathon meeting with 135 Barisan Nasional MPs on Saturday, where he was given briefings and viewpoints by the elected representatives on the situation in their constituencies.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had earlier indicated that he wanted to know first-hand the situation on the ground and issue directives to them to prepare the coalition for the next general election.

The meeting kicked off at 9.30am at the Putra World Trade Centre, with Datuk Najib having a heart-to-heart talk with Sarawak MPs Datuk Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar (Santubong), Datuk Dr Tiki Lafe (Mas Gading) and Datuk Fadillah Yusof (Petra Jaya).

While some MPs were tight-lipped on what had transpired with their talks with the Barisan chairman, Batang Sadong MP Nancy Shukri said Datuk Najib asked them on what high-impact projects that should be carried out for the benefit of the people.
