PM to pilgrims: Don't worry about date of GE
SEPANG: Do not worry about the date of the 13th general election, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said to Haj pilgrims on Saturday.
"Fulfil your worship duties over there, pray fervently, and do not think about the elections.
"What is more important is that you fulfil the requirements of the Haj completely," Najib said in his speech to 447 pilgrims at the KLIA departure hall, where the second batch of pilgrims will take off to Mecca later on Saturday.
The speech was read out by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, who represented Najib.
