Guan Eng: Pahang should boot out BN

DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng urged the people of Pahang to vote out the BN-led government for failing to safeguard their interests.

"Pahang must punish BN for breaking its promises of building an independent Chinese school in Kuantan, protecting the people's health in the Lynas Rare Earth Plant in Kuantan and the use of cyanide by the Raub Australian Gold Mining Sdn Bhd (RAGM) in Bukit Koman before the general elections," he said in a statement today.

He said that BN had has become overconfident of defending Pahang that it thought it could openly mislead Pahang voters, who had also put several MCA cabinet ministers in office.

NONE"Being a cabinet minister does not give one the right to betray their voter's interests and break their promises for the benefit of the few at the expense of ordinary people of Pahang.

"What is the use of having Tourism Minister Ng Yen Yen (left) who spends more time travelling overseas than resolving the problems in her constituency?

"What is the point of having a health minister (Liow Tiong Lai) that supports the establishment of Lynas rare earth plant and RAGM that harms our health?" he said.

Lim, who is also the Penang chief minister, said Pakatan Rakyat would close down Lynas and RAGB if it came into power, approve a Chinese independent school in Kuantan, and give an annual allocation to all schools.

In addition, he said a Pakatan Rakyat-led government would be more transparent and accountable to slash debts and end the state's decade long budget deficits.

He also promised to introduce a new automatic land lease renewal policy, where landowners would also enjoy a 90 percent discount when expired leases are renewed.
