MARA continues to be pride of Malays under BN: PM

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) – Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said MARA will continue to be an institution that is the pride of the Malays and Bumiputeras for as long as the government is led by the Barisan Nasional (BN).

The Prime Minister said the existence of MARA yesterday was because of the policies and struggles of the government that continuously looked after the welfare and affairs of the institution for the sake of the future of the Malays and Bumiputeras.

“The existence of MARA is close to my heart because the founder of MARA itself was my father, the late Tun Abdul Razak. To me, the continuity of the previous struggles is necessary and will be continued,” he said.

He said this in his speech in conjunction with an event, ‘Himpunan Saya Anak Mara’ at UniKL MIAT, Subang, yesterday. Also present were MARA chairman Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin, MUAFAKAT President Datuk Rizal Mansor and Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar.
