Najib promises Indians more if given ‘nambikei’


Feature-Najib-2KUALA LUMPUR:  Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak gave his assurance that more could be done for the Indians  with unity and continued ‘nambikei’ between the government and the community.

He called on  the Indian community to stay united and focused on achieving the best outcome through the various initiatives that the government was delivering to the community.

He said through a strong commitment and trust, or ‘nambikei’ between the government and the Indian community, they had been able to bring much improvement and transformation to the community as a whole.


“With this unity and the continued ‘nambikei’ between us, I can assure you that we can do much more and reach out to every deserving Indian family, thereby ensuring that the progress of our nation is shared by all Malaysians alike,” he said in his message posted on his www.1Malaysia.com.my blog in conjunction with the Ponggal celebration tomorrow.

He described the arrival of the auspicious month of ‘Thai’ in the Indian calendar,  marked by the celebration of ‘Ponggal’ (harvest festival),  as symbolic of  a new beginning.

“As our friends signify the bountiful harvest by their  tradition of boiling milk and rice, we are reminded of the rapid growth of our country’s transformation agenda that has brought much success and continued development for the benefit of all Malaysians,” he said.

Najib said Malaysia was a country full of opportunities and by strengthening unity as well as working hard together, all Malaysians would share the country’s harvest, as the nation progresses towards a developed and high-income nation status by 2020.

The prime minister also wished all Malaysian Indians “Ponggal Vaalthukal” and a very happy Ponggal.

“Let us all come together in the spirit of 1Malaysia to join our friends and celebrate this festival with renewed hope that this festival of new beginnings will bring Malaysia more progress and success,” he said.
