BACHOK: Kelantan Barisan Nasional’s manifesto for the 14th General Election will include tourism and generations-old cultural arts inherited by the people of the state.
The chairman of the committee that is planning the manifesto, Datuk Awang Adek Hussin, said the document is near completion and contains well-balanced elements.
Kelantan, he said, could become a leading tourist attraction for its appealing beaches, especially in Bachok and Pasir Puteh.
“Kelantanese cultural arts such as the mak yong dance, dikir barat and the traditional game of gasing (top spinning) will also be promoted,” he told reporters after the Back-to-School 2 programme organised by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) at its Bachok office here.
Also present was TNB general manager Datuk Md Yuslan Md Yusoff.
Awang Adek, who was formerly TNB chairman and is currently Mara chairman, said the manifesto would also include a call for better roads and more job opportunities.
Under the Back-to-School programme, 200 students from underprivileged families, comprising children of fishermen, labourers and farmers, received school supplies worth RM40,000. — Bernama
