That familiar school of thought in Bagan Pinang

Some people apparently still believe that it’s appropriate and kosher to hand over ‘gifts’ to the ordinary folks prior to a by-election. And so we have no less than the Deputy Prime Minister promising two new schools in the state constituency near Port Dickson.

An excerpt from The Malaysian Insider:

PORT DICKSON, Sept 28 – Less than 24 hours before the announcement of the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Bagan Pinang by-election, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the construction of two new schools in the state constituency.

One new primary school, costing RM18 million, will be built at Taman Intan Perdana, situated some 15 kilometres from Port Dickson town centre.

The deputy prime minister said in his speech at the new school’s ground-breaking ceremony cum Hari Raya open house that he has been receiving requests from the locals for a new secondary school.

Muhyiddin added that a new secondary school costing RM20 million will also be built once a suitable site is found.
