BESUT, July 6 (Bernama) -- Teachers have been urged to support the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the Kuala Besut state by-election as a gratitude to the government in championing their welfare.
Second Education Minister Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said there was no reason why teachers should turn their back on the government at the time when their help were needed most.
"And the time has come for them to help ensure that the BN retain the seat as a gratitude to the government," he told reporters during meet-the-people session in Kampung Kemunting near Kuala Besut here today.
He said the BN had set the slogan 'Kuala Besut getting Bluer' and targeted to increase the majority from 2,434 votes to 4,000 by getting closer to the people through house-to-house campaign.
Idris, who is also Kuala Besut deputy election director, reminded voters in Kuala Besut that the opposition would not be able to bring prosperity to them.
