Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan has said that there's no denying Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's contribution to the Chinese community in the country
According to Borneo Post, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Rahman praised Najib in his speech at the Chinese New Year celebration organised by MCA Kota Kinabalu and City Hall at Foh Sang Luyang, Sabah on Saturday, 3 March.
Rahman also assured the Chinese community that they are a part of the country.
"I can tell you all that Najib has done more for the Chinese community compared to all the prime ministers before him combined."
As reported by Free Malaysia Today, the Kota Belud MP said Najib will help the Chinese in any way that he could because of his love and appreciation for the community.
He added, "Najib has never called Chinese ‘pendatang’ (migrants) or made light of their contributions."
According to Rahman, Najib has always looked into suggestions and recommendations from MCA as well as Gerakan that will benefit the community
He continued, "Any policies which are deemed not beneficial to the Chinese community and objected by these two parties, Najib will immediately cancel them."
Referring to the recent controversy between Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz and billionaire businessman Robert Kuok, Rahman said people should only pay attention to what Najib said on the issue and not listen to remarks made by others
He said, "Some ministers have the tendency to speak without thinking, but the people should only be concerned if the prime minister jumps on the bandwagon of the criticisms.
"I would like to advise Malaysians to just listen to the prime minister because prime minister Najib Razak loves the Chinese community."
With the general elections (GE14) looming ever closer, Rahman reminded the rakyat that only the BN government can guarantee peace and security which the country has enjoyed since independence
According to Borneo Post, he said, "Election is coming and some people say BN will win. I agree that we will win big in Peninsular Malaysia. I tell my friends and family that BN is not worried of losing because it will not happen.
"BN is worried about winning – what I mean is we do not want to win the next election only based on the support of one race. We want everybody to be part of the government so that we can build a better future for your family and future generation. Together we can assure that the country will move forward."
