Bintulu MP’s National Day wish …

Date:

KUCHING: Bintulu MP Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing has a National Day wish – to see the government coming together and putting the people first, and see an end to the Covid-19 scourge.

He said the fight against the coronavirus had dragged on for more than a year and life was even more uncertain now, what with the people faced with a double whammy – the pandemic and political turmoil.

“The people sometimes feel like passengers on a listless ship, gradually losing confidence and determination to lead active lives.

“But with our National Day, I pray that our beautiful country will once again inspire a government of wisdom and courage following a big change.

“The wisdom to put the people first, and the courage to shoulder greater responsibility so that our people may feel the warmth again after the night’s storm,” he said in a Facebook post today.

Tiong is hoping and praying for an end to the pandemic with blessings for growth and renewal again.

“We all deserve some respite from an unprecedented struggle and to receive cheer again in our hearts,” he said.

On the National Day, he said the Jalur Gemilang was soaring with the Negaraku playing in the air, bringing back memories of the nation’s proud history as Malaysia enjoyed rapid development from a little known colony into one of Southeast Asia’s leading economies with foreign trade and investments bringing economic growth.

“This history is surely imprinted in the hearts of every Malaysian and they yearn for the bounty that we can receive from this beautiful land,” he added.
