Hold Membership Campaign, Tun M Urges Kopeks

Posted: 17 Mar 2013 03:56 AM PDT

KOTA KINABALU, March 17 – Former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has urged the Sabah Government Employees Cooperative Society Bhd (Kopeks) to hold large-scale membership promotions among the state’s civil servants.

Dr Mahathir said cooperatives could increase their contribution to the nation’s gross domestic product from the present three per cent, and a bigger membership would give them the capital to diversify their business.

Although coperatives have been around for some time in Malaysia, many people are not yet members and a membership campaign could attract more civil servants to join Kopeks, he said at a Kopeks-organised talk here today.

Kopeks has clearly benefited its members in the state especially those who owe money to illegal money lenders, while members of a cooperative enjoy lower prices and a share of the profits from its sales, he added.

Also present were Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman, his deputy Datuk Seri Yahya Hussin and Kopeks chairman Datuk Maznah Abdul Ghani.

“As a mover of various activities, the 1Malaysia Perwani Community can promote healthcare, family welfare, skill training, entrepreneurship and tuition.

“They can become the eyes and ears of the government in combating crimes and threats to national security,” he said when launching the initiative in conjunction with the ’1 Million Women Purple Walk 2013′ here, today.

The 1Malaysia Perwani Community comprises residents’ associations, the Malaysian Association of Wives of Civil Servants and Women Civil Servants (Puspanita), the Police Family Association (Perkep), the Malaysian Armed Forces Family Welfare Association (Bakat), Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia (AIM), non-governmental organisations (NGOs), single mothers, and women.

The 1Malaysia Perwani Community will act as a conduit between the community and the authorities or to provide feedback on infrastructure or public amenities facilities that needed attention or improvements.

At the event, Najib also launched the Purplelicious Mobile Café, the latest project initiated by the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry to help single mothers earn a living.

Under the programme, nine single mothers from various races run a mobile cafe using two trucks which will make pit stops at selected locations in the Klang Valley and Putrajaya.

Ahmad Maslan Nafi Penglibatan UMNO Dalam Video Aksi Songsang

Posted: 17 Mar 2013 03:52 AM PDT

MELAKA, 17 Mac – Ketua Penerangan Umno Datuk Ahmad Maslan menafikan penglibatan Umno dalam video aksi songsang memaparkan individu yang didakwa mirip seorang tokoh politik dengan pasangan lelakinya di sebuah hotel.

Beliau berkata pembangkang sememangnya akan menyalahkan Umno berhubung video itu yang dimuat naik sebuah blog, dan kemudiannya turut dipaparkan di beberapa blog lain.

“Sebagaimana fikiran pembangkang segalanya kerja Umno termasuk insiden (pencerobohan pengganas Sulu di) Lahad Datu tetapi Umno tidak sehebat itu untuk mengatur segalanya.

“Tak kan orang dalam bilik pun kita yang mengatur, kita tak ada masa nak pasang kamera dalam bilik orang,” katanya kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan Taklimat Penceramah Penerangan Negeri Melaka di sini, hari ini.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas kenyataan Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dalam akhbar The Star hari ini yang menafikan individu dalam video itu adalah dirinya sambil mendakwa ia perbuatan Umno.

Ahmad yang juga Timbalan Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri berkata rakyat boleh menilai sendiri siapa tokoh politik yang didakwa dalam video itu.

“Tengok sendiri dan buat keputusan, jangan bantai (kutuk) sebelum tengok, tapi tengok dulu…kita serah kepada mereka untuk menilai sendiri,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Ahmad menyeru semua anggota Umno dan Barisan Nasional (BN) agar menanam keyakinan bahawa parti itu mampu mencapai kemenangan serta memperoleh majoriti dua pertiga pada pilihan raya Umum ke-13.

Beliau berkata keyakinan itu harus disandarkan pada kejayaan program dan dasar yang dilaksanakan kerajaan di bawah kepimpinan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak pada masa ini.

Malah, katanya pembangkang tidak mempunyai sebarang kekuatan kerana gagal melaksanakan janji selain mempunyai pemimpin yang didakwanya terlibat dalam pelbagai skandal.

BN Sentiasa Iktiraf Golongan Muda, Kata MB Perlis

Posted: 17 Mar 2013 03:49 AM PDT

KANGAR, 17 Mac – Barisan Nasional (BN) sentiasa mengiktiraf golongan muda kerana mereka juga bakal menjadi penentu masa depan negara, kata Menteri Besar Perlis Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu.

Pengerusi BN Perlis itu berkata golongan muda akan terus diberi pengiktirafan dan menikmati pelbagai kemudahan kerana kerajaan yang diterajui BN sentiasa mengotakan janji.

Berucap pada majlis pelancaran kempen keamanan Puteri Umno Perlis di Dataran Tasik Melati hari ini, beliau berkata golongan muda juga bertanggungjawab mengekalkan keamanan negara.

Md Isa, yang juga Pengerusi Perhubungan Umno Perlis, berkata langkah Puteri Umno menganjurkan kempen itu dengan slogan ‘Bersatu Pertahan Kedaulatan Negara’ menggambarkan keprihatinan golongan muda terhadap keamanan negara.

Sempena pelancaran itu, Md Isa turut melepaskan konvoi bermotosikal membabitkan ratusan anggota Puteri Umno menjelajah Perlis sambil membawa mesej keamanan.

Ketua Puteri Umno Perlis Asmaiza Ahmad berkata kempen keamanan itu bertujuan memupuk semangat patriotisme di kalangan generasi muda selain menzahirkan simpati kepada anggota keluarga perwira negara yang terkorban ketika mempertahan kedaulatan negara di Lahad Datu, Sabah.

Beliau berkata semangat perwira negara seharusnya diteladani generasi muda untuk sama-sama berkongsi semangat untuk mempertahan negara daripada sebarang bentuk pencerobohan.

Katanya, nilai keamanan adalah amat tinggi kerana negara tidak aman akan menyingkir keharmonian yang selama ini dinikmati rakyat negara ini.

Turut hadir Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani Perlis Sabry Ahmad, yang juga anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri Santan.

Hasrat Tanding 15 Kerusi Parlimen Di Johor Bukti DAP Dominasi Pakatan Pembangkang

Posted: 17 Mar 2013 03:47 AM PDT

MUAR, 17 Mac – Hasrat DAP mahu bertanding 15 daripada 26 kerusi Parlimen di Johor pada pilihan raya umum ke-13 (PRU-13) membuktikan sikap dominasi parti itu ke atas PAS dan Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) dalam pakatan pembangkang.

Naib Ketua Pemuda Umno Datuk Razali Ibrahim berkata ia juga menyerlahkan lagi andaian bahawa tiada kesepakatan di kalangan pemimpin pakatan pembangkang dalam menentukan kerusi yang akan mereka tandingi.

“Setiap pemimpin parti dalam pakatan pembangkang membuat kenyataan sendiri, tidak seperti Barisan Nasional (BN) hanya seorang sahaja yang akan mengeluarkan kenyataan berhubung sesuatu keputusan yang dibuat,” katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian kepada pemberita selepas menghadiri majlis penerangan anjuran Jabatan Hal Ehwal Khas (JASA) Johor di Dewan Serbaguna Kuarters Polis Diraja Malaysia Muar di Kampung Kelantan di sini hari ini.

Mengenai hasrat tokoh veteran DAP Lim Kit Siang yang ingin bertanding di Johor, Razali berkata DAP memberi tumpuan di Johor, Sarawak dan Sabah kerana BN menguasai lebih banyak kerusi di ketiga-tiga negeri itu.

Beliau berkata Lim tahu pakatan pembangkang perlu memenangi lebih kerusi Parlimen pada PRU-13 untuk memenuhi impiannya untuk menawan Putrajaya kerana itu memberi tumpuan pada negeri yang dikuasai BN.

Terdahulu dalam ucapannya, Razali berkata rakyat atau pengundi di negara ini adalah golongan yang bijaksana dan tahu menilai antara persepsi dengan prestasi.

Beliau yakin, mereka akan memberi penilaian lebih tinggi terhadap prestasi kerajaan BN sekarang berbanding persepsi tidak baik yang cuba dicanangkan oleh pembangkang.

Ini kerana katanya, Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak sendiri sentiasa memberi penekanan kepada kebajikan rakyat berbanding pemimpin pembangkang yang didakwanya mengutamakan kuasa dan kedudukan diri sendiri.

Pengundi Wanita Sandaran Kemenangan BN Di T’ganu

Posted: 17 Mar 2013 03:44 AM PDT

KUALA TERENGGANU, 17 Mac – Pengundi wanita di Terengganu yang seramai 52 peratus dilihat akan menjadi sandaran kepada kemenangan Barisan Nasional (BN) pada pilihan raya umum ke-13 kali ini.

Oleh itu usaha dilakukan untuk menggerakkan mereka dengan lebih giat semasa pilihan raya nanti termasuk berperanan sebagai perayu undi.

“Kita telah melakukan pelbagai strategi untuk memastikan kemenangan menjadi milik BN termasuk meramaikan peraih undi wanita, memperbanyakkan program wanita dan jentera wanita, memandangkan jumlah pengundi wanita negeri ini lebih ramai.

“Justeru jentera wanita BN akan kita kerahkan sebagai perayu undi untuk memastikan semua pengundi wanita turun untuk mengundi,” kata Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said kepada pemberita selepas majlis pelancaran 1Million Women Purple Walk di Dataran Shahbandar di sini hari ini.

Mengenai peluang BN untuk mengekalkan pemerintahan, beliau yang juga Pengerusi BN Negeri berkata iklim perubahan rakyat untuk menyokong kerajaan adalah lebih baik berbanding pilihan raya sebelum ini.

“Ini dapat dilihat dengan usaha murni kerajaan untuk memajukan dan menjaga kebajikan rakyat melalui program serta pelbagai bantuan yang telahpun disalurkan kepada rakyat,” katanya.

Ahmad berkata pada pilihan raya umum 2008, hampir 84 peratus rakyat Terengganu keluar mengundi dan kali ini 85 peratus dijangka keluar mengundi.

Mengenai senarai calon, beliau berkata ia telah diserahkan kepada pucuk pimpinan parti.
