KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has again emphasised that the government under his leadership does not adopt the populist approach in the administration but always endeavoured to expand the national economy.
He said the government must ensure that the national revenue continued to increase and grow before deciding to make ‘sweet promises’ to the people.
“I believe all of you are aware of this reality. That is why we administer the country in a prudent manner, our way is not the populist way.
“I can become a Prime Minister that stands on the populist platform, but this way, I will destroy the future of our beloved nation,” he said when opening the 26th triennial convention of the Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs), here Tuesday.
Also present were the Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, Director-General of Public Service Tan Sri Mohamad Zabidi Zainal and Cuepacs president Datuk Omar Osman.
