Najib, ministers to distribute flags for Merdeka month

Malaysiakini | Jul 20, 11

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin and cabinet ministers will distribute Jalur Gemilang to the public in conjunction with the upcoming independence month celebration.

Information Communication and Culture Minister Rais Yatim said the flag distribution would be carried out at KL Sentral after the weekly cabinet meeting on Wednesday.

“The prime minister and cabinet ministers will take a ride on the ERL from here to KL Sentral,” he told reporters in Putrajaya.

Earlier, Rais accompanied Muhyiddin who were shown the batik shirt to be worn by cabinet ministers at the launch of the flag-raising campaign.

The specially-designed batik incorporates multi-ethnic motifs in line with the 1Malaysia concept.

Muhyiddin later chaired the cabinet meeting.

    In Malusia Umnoputra will Forever using hidden disguise Spin Malay Muslim propaganda to distract Rakyat to feed their masses whe attention away as well they need a scapegoat whom to blame for their financial woes and shortcomings. You cannot say it is a true Muslim country. A true Muslim country upholds every single commandment in the Quran. In this worlds, it is easier to find lies than truths. Most people are speculating the things they had seen or heard or read about. Is what they thought the truth? not necessarily. People tend to generalize things that they don’t know much about. I always done that and it had backfired on me with rebuke and criticism what Malaysia really is. So typical.

    These were the ‘false’ part they say:

    1. and one man died of a heart attack..

    2. The march itself was then banned, although the authorities offered Bersih a stadium to meet in—and then withdrew the offer.

    3. The heavy-handed police tactics have provoked a lot of anger; the government has conceded an official investigation into claims of police brutality. In one instance (caught on film), police seemed to fire tear gas and water cannon into a hospital where protesters were sheltering from a baton charge.

    LOL!! Real jokers….

    Make sure they pay for their ride like everyone else. And also no special favours for boarding. They must join the crowd and jostle to get on board so that they can get a taste of what the rakyat has to suffer daily.

    The actions of BN really show how detached they are from reality. They are supposed to manage the nation with the sole objective of making the nation progress. Instead they not only wantonly wasted and stole from the treasury, they stooped below human’s dignity to conquer those silly things. And they think they can repeat the same sloganeering exercise by their predecessors to hookwink Malaysians; forgetting that in spite their corrupted and wicked aim in the national educational policy, Malaysians, especially the younger ones have awaken from their sleep. Now without any plan for the nation; as their main concern has been how to bleed the nation, they start to organize all silly time wasting gathering1 Maybe they should be allowed to enjoy their last few months!
