Teachers urged to support BN in Kuala Besut


(Bernama) – Teachers have been urged to support the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the Kuala Besut state by-election in gratitude to the government for championing their welfare.

Second Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said there was no reason why teachers should turn their back on the government at a time when their help was needed most.

“And the time has come for them to help ensure that the BN retains the seat, as gratitude to the government,” he told reporters during a meet-the-people session in Kampung Kemunting near Kuala Besut in Terengganu yesterday.

He said the BN has set the campaign slogan as, “Kuala Besut getting Bluer” and is targeting to increase the majority from 2,434 votes to 4,000 by getting closer to the people through house-to-house campaign.

Idris, who is also Kuala Besut deputy election director, reminded voters there that the opposition will not be able to bring them prosperity.
