Najib Quashes Rumour Of Differences Between Him And PM

It's just a "myth" rumour??

PEKAN, March 17 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak refuted rumour in the internet that there are differences between him and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Describing the rumour as a "myth", he said his relationship with the Prime Minister was very close and strong in steering the country's development.

"Being the number two in the country, I always strive to assist the Prime Minister in the country's administration and so on for the good of the country.

"Don't listen to the stories in the internet...they are all a myth," he said in his speech at the Pekan Village Development and Security Committee (JKKK) gathering and lunch, here.

Najib said efforts by certain groups in holding ceramah to criticise him including in the Pekan parliamentay constituency were aimed at poisoning the mind of the people against him.

"We should not react hastily, we must stick to principles and the truth...what is important is that we understand and know who will help us," he said.

The Deputy Prime Minister said the people were now capable of evaluating the country's leadership and had the right to choose the best and most suitable leader.

"This year, we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the country's independence, and we should be thankful for being citizens of Malaysia which is developed and strong compared to some other countries.

"This achievement can be attributed to several factors and one of them is effective leadership because we have had leaders with vision, dedication and well planned programs for the good of the people," he said.

As such, the people must be together with the government to remain united in continuing the country's development agenda, Najib said.
