SUNGAI PETANI, May 26 (Bernama) -- Kedah Umno will formulate a comprehensive strategic plan to understand and address people's problems in the state in hopes of gaining their support towards wresting Kedah back from the opposition in the next general election.
State Umno deputy liaison chief Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir admitted that the initiative may not solve all their problems.
"But we hope that they would be appreciative of our effort," he told reporters after presenting 10 computers to Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil Mahajothi here Thursday.
Mukhriz, who is Deputy International Trade and Industry Minister, said the Kedah PAS government had failed to bring prosperity and development to the people of Kedah after three years at the helm.
"They have been trumpeting the slogan 'Kedah Sejahtera' 'Peaceful and Prosperous Kedah' for three years. The truth is, they have let Kedahans down," he said.
Mukhriz said the state government had also failed to respond to queries in the state legislative assembly with regard to its claim that it had delivered 80.7 per cent of its electoral promises in Kedah.
"They're playing around with figures, and this is not enough to substantiate claims that they have brought about development and transformation to the state," he added.
