KUALA LUMPUR: – Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah today urged the people to avoid sensitive issues which are in the interests of any political party.

His Majesty said, every citizen has been promised the rights and freedom based on the Federal Constitution but the freedom should not go beyond the values that uphold the unity of the nation.

“The same applies to political agenda; there must be a limit and boundary that should not be crossed.

“If the political polemic is left prolonged , sooner or later the impact will be on the people.

“Believe me, the unity and the peacefulness of the country that has been built for these 62 years if ever we lose it, it will be difficult to get it back.

“My advice is, let bygones be bygones, forgive and forget past disputes so that the broken relationship can be fixed and restored, ” Sultan Abdullah said when gracing the investiture ceremony of federal awards and honours held in conjunction with the official birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong at Istana Negara here Monday (Sept 9).

His Majesty also lauded all efforts taken by the government in facing the increasingly challenging economic and geopolitical environment, and welcomed various other measures to be taken by the government to strengthen the country’s economy and finances, while addressing the cost of living and eradicating poverty.

“In this regard, the government should always strive to also improve the services provided to the people.

“I hope that those in need, such as the poor, persons with disabilities and the B40 group, be given equal attention and assistance so that they are not left out of mainstream development, ” Sultan Abdullah added.

Apart from that, the development and practice of good and noble values in every aspect of life should also be the responsibility of the government and all Malaysians, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong said.-Malaysia World News
