KUALA SELANGOR - Malaysians should be happy and not worry as the country is doing well, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

"If Malaysia was a failed or bankrupt country as alleged by the Opposition, do you think our candidates could ask for allocations?" said Najib in his speech at SMK Puncak Alam here Tuesday (May 2).

Najib was referring to Kuala Selangor MP Datuk Seri Dr Irmohizam Ibrahim's request for more clinics to be built in the district.

Irmohizam also wanted the Federal Government to put up a new district education  department building in Kuala Selangor.

Najib said the RM1bil request could not be met if the country had gone bust as alleged, adding that the government would be unable to build facilities such as these.

He also said that Barisan has managed the country well and that is why development projects such as this could be carried out.

Najib also promised that Barisan will settle Selangor's water woes if the coalition re-takes Selangor, as stipulated in the state's election manifesto.

On this, Najib said that many problems will arise when the Federal and state governments differ in opinion.

He added Selangor's water problem was a good example as it cannot be settled because the state government wanted to do it in a different way.

Najib advised the people to vote wisely and not be influenced by emotions and the allegations made on social media.

"Give me a mandate for five more years, we have big plans for the country to also bring the country to TN50 (National Transformation 2050)," said Najib.
