BETONG (Sarawak), April 13 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Wednesday that the Barisan Nasional (BN) has succeeded in regaining the support of the people ahead of Saturday's state election in Sarawak, particularly in areas deemed "grey".
He said the "grey" constituencies now were deemed "white" following the presence of the "blue wave" (BN campaigners) in these places.
"We (BN) are getting this sign from the ground reports filed from time to time and also during my meetings with the people at the grassroot level. This development augurs well for the BN to achieve a good result on Saturday (polling day," he told a press conference after attending a meet-the-people session at Sekolah Kebangsaan Maludam near here, about 450 kilometres from Kuching.
He said the hard work put in by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Sarawak BN leaders, federal ministers and other BN leaders had produced positive results in regaining the people's support for the BN in these "grey" areas.
He said the people now understood better the BN's struggle and its manifesto compared to the hollow manifesto of the Opposition.
However, Muhyiddin declined to reveal the number of "grey" seats that had been whitened.
He also said that campaigning was being intensified in the other seats towards ensuring a better than two-thirds victory for BN come Saturday.
At the function, Muhyiddin announced allocations of RM3 million for construction of the Jalan Kampung Seberang Maludam road, RM1.5 million for upgrading SK Maludam and several other projects for the Lingga constituency under the 10th Malaysia Plan, worth RM26.7 million overall.
tunku : the aim now is to make the black area into grey ,the grey area into white and the white remains white.BN should work harder to ensure this.give BN your votes and Sarawak still needs the federal to bring in more developments.
