Najib's 100 days in office but he fails to address people's issues !


At the gathering to mark his 100 days in office, PM Najib has announced a slew of " goodies" .


People like " goodies" and he can expect his approval ratings to go higher than the 65% achieved recently.


But if Najib wants to truly bring about changes, he has to implement more and real changes and not just populist measures or goodies.


For example, I did not see his promise that a Royal Commission of Inquiry will be set up into the PKFZ issue. Should the people be satisfied with just the release of the recent PKFZ Report?


Neither did he promise that he will permanently solve the highway toll rate problem. Should the people be happy with the discount announced? Is this all his government can do ?


There was no promise that his government will abolish draconian laws like the ISA, OSA and the Printing and Press Act.


There are many more promises which the PM has not addressed.


The " what he did not promise"list can go on but what is important is that the people who have voted for change in the last general election must be able to see what the PM did not promise rather than what he has promised.


The nation and the people definitely deserve more than the slew of goodies announced.
