Najib berbasikal pula...


Senyum... tak perlu kata apa-apa...

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak hari ini menyertai kira-kira 5,000 pelajar sekolah mengayuh basikal sejauh tujuh kilometer dalam program Kayuhan Amal 1Malaysia Untuk Pelajaran di Straits Quay, Tanjong Tokong di sini.


Najib yang tiba di tempat permulaan di sini pada jam 7.25 pagi, disambut oleh kira-kira 20,000 pelajar sekolah serta Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang,Lim Guan Eng, Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri,Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon dan Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan UMNO negeri,Datuk Zainal Abidin Osman.

Nampak tak gambar Guan Eng kat atas tu? dia tersegih bukan tersenyum lagi..

Sebenarnya projek ini adalah usaha sebuah penerbitan surat khabar berbahasa Cina yang aku terlupa namanya tujuannya adalah untuk membantu mengumpul dana bagi membantu pembelajaran di Sekolah sekolah Cina.Mereka bercadang untuk mengumpulkan RM15Juta untuk 15 sekolah rendah..

Cadangan telah dikemukakan kepada Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, Lim Guan Eng dengan penyertaan hampir mencecah 5000 peserta dan beliau telah diminta untuk 'flag-off' peserta.

Apabila terpandang jumlah penyertaan yang begitu besar dan dana yang mahu dikumpul juga besar, Guan Eng telah telah memanjangkan permintaan tersebut kepada Najib.. kan Najib gila publisiti.. mesti dia terima punyalah..

Dengan syarat sumbangan datang atau diusahakan oleh Najib.

Bagai dijangka.. Najib menerima dan menjanjikan sumbangan, lalu program dinamakan Kayuhan Amal 1Malaysia Untuk Pelajaran.

Pasal itulah Guan Eng tersengih... tak perlu pening kepala mana nak tolong cari RM15Juta tu.. Najib kan ada..

Mahal harganya yang Najib perlu bayar untuk berbasikal tu sebenarnya..



Najib cycles with 5,000 students, gives RM15m to Penang Chinese schools

GEORGE TOWN, Sept 25 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak cycled seven kilometres with 5,000 Penang schoolchildren and handed RM1 million each to 15 Chinese schools here under the “1 Malaysia Charity Ride for Education 2011” today.

Some 20,000 schoolchildren greeted the prime minister on his arrival at the Straits Quay in Tanjong Tokong here, Bernama Online reported.



Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon and Penang Umno Liaison Committee chairman Datuk Zainal Abidin Osman were present.



Najib recounted before flag-off that the programme reminded him that he last rode a bike when he was a child fifty years ago, when he rode from the prime minister’s residence (his father was prime minister then) at Perdana Lake Gardens to the National Mosque to buy nasi lemak.

The prime minister said lightheartedly he practiced for the event by riding in the hotel lobby he was at. He said the hotel staff thought he was a little “crazy” riding the bicycle in the corridors.

Najib said the cycling programme meant a lot to him since it was in line with his 1 Malaysia concept, which cut across race and religious lines, bringing families together.

He said it was a noble cause that the programme set to collect RM15 million for 15 Chinese secondary schools, five of them private. The money came from the public and 1MDB.

The cheques were handed to SMJK Chung Ling Butterworth, SMJK Jit Sin, SMJK Chung Ling, SMJK Heng Ee, SMJK Phor Tay, SMJK Perempuan Cina, SMJK Union, SMJK Convent Dato Keramat, SMJK Chung Hwa Confucian, SMJK Sacred Heart, Chung Ling (Private) High School, Jit Sin Independent High School, Penang Chinese Girls High School (Private), Phor Tay (Private) High School and Han Chiang High School.

The event was organised by Kwong Wah Yit Poh and sponsored by 1MDB.

The prime minister also presented 5,000 bicycles at the participating students.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen, Dr Koh, Lim, Kwong Wah Yit Poh chairman Datuk Ong Gim Huat and Penang state executive councillors, were in attendance.

Koh, who is also Penang Barisan Nasional chairman, was unfortunately involved in a minor accident at Pantai Molek during the event.

Koh said he was not able to brake and avoid collision with two bikes which had knocked into each other in front of him.
