Ahmad Bashah can bring more progress to Kedah, says Najib
The Prime Minister added that he believes Ahmad Bashah can carry out his duties effectively for the welfare and betterment of the people.
"My colleagues and I (in the Federal Government) extend our congratulations to Ahmad Bashah as the new Mentri Besar and wish him well in carrying out his duties," he said at the outset of his speech when opening SJK Tamil Paya Besar in Lunas, here, on Friday.
Ahmad Bashah, Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, Health Minister and MIC president Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam and Deputy Education Minister Datuk P. Kamalanathan were also present at the event.
Ahmad Bashah, 66, who is the state assemblyman for Bakar Bata, was sworn in on Thursday as the 12th Kedah Mentri Besar at Istana Anak Bukit in Alor Setar, replacing Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, who resigned a day earlier citing loss of majority support in the state legislative assembly.
