The government will return the favour to the people for the mandate given to Pakatan Harapan to govern the country during the last general election.

Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said despite the allegation that nothing has been achieved after Harapan took over the country’s administration, the facts proved otherwise.

“We have solved many problems left by the previous ruling party and we believe that our country will recover soon.

“We have promised to share the country’s wealth and we have introduced a new policy of shared prosperity... we will make sure that no one will be left behind,” he said at a Bersatu Aidilfitri open house in Kulim last night.

Mahathir said the new policy could be realised as long as the people continue to support all the plans lined up by the government.

He said in the agricultural sector which involves mostly the poor, for example, many new approaches would be introduced so that the people in rural areas will be able to enjoy the benefit of shared prosperity as enjoyed by the people in urban areas.

Meanwhile, Mahathir said after Harapan took over the country’s administration, all quarters are no longer afraid but instead were free to criticise the government.

“The new government, despite being called inefficient, is actually more efficient than the previous one, and with the eradication of corruption, the country will be further developed and the people will be able to live a better life,” he said.

About 20,000 people attended the open house held at the MBI Desaku Convention Hall.

Also present were Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin and Kedah Menteri Besar Mukhriz Mahathir.
