Volunteer work is satisfying, says Najib
KANGAR: Youths are urged to be involved in volunteering as this will provide them with lasting satisfaction.
Volunteer work also provides a training ground for youths aspiring to be future leaders for it instils good moral values, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
“The smiles of appreciation from those they have helped will last for days," he said at the 1Malaysia Youth Volunteers gathering here.
Earlier, in his speech during the Jelajah Janji Ditepati' programme, Najib questioned Pakatan Rakyat's general election manifesto since the coalition had failed to deliver on its 2008 election promises.
“Have they fulfilled the promises they made in 2008 in states under their control? How about the allowance to single mothers, to housewives who take care of their own children?
”They make promises but how many of the promises have they fulfilled?” he said.
Najib said Pakatan could not be trusted since they have different paths and agendas.
“They contest under different party symbols. That is why we can question their capability to deliver their manifesto,” he said.
Najib is in Perlis for a day-long visit.
