Opposition pledges can never be fulfilled, says CM

(Daily Express) – Sabahans have been advised not to be easily influenced by empty promises made by the opposition.

“It is the norm for opposition parties to make all kinds of promises because they know they are not the ruling party and all their promises remain false promises,” said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman after attending the MCA Chinese New Year Open House here, Tuesday.

He said this in response to the promises made by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim here, recently, that PKR will increase the oil royalty to 20 per cent if they gain support from the people of Sabah.

Musa said he believes the people of Sabah, know and understand that the promises made by the opposition are promises which are never fulfilled.

“I believe the people in Sabah know that unlike the opposition, Barisan Nasional (BN) makes and keeps their promises,” he said.

He cited the RM100 assistance to school students and the RM500 BR1M for households earning below RM3,000 a month as proof that BN keeps its promises.

Meanwhile, Musa also applauded the encouraging response from the public who attended the Chinese New Year Open house.

“This is a good sign for us in Sabah and throughout Malaysia, where people in this country show mutual respect by visiting open houses of various festivals held here.

“This makes it possible to bring about development, to our country Malaysia, especially Sabah because of the warmth and unity that exists between communities of different races and religions in the nation.

The open house was graced by Head of State Datuk Juhar Mahiruddin and also attended by Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and Datuk Peter Pang En Yin among others.
