ALOR SETAR: New Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah has pledged to proceed with the development projects planned by his
predecessor Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Mahathir so long as they are beneficial for the people.
He said there was no reason for him to discontinue any beneficial development project.
“If the development project is sound, we will proceed with the implementation. We have proceeded with development projects planned by non-Barisan Nasional leadership, what more by Datuk Seri Mukhriz who is a BN assemblyman,” he said.
Ahmad Bashah spoke to reporters after attending an investiture in conjunction with the 88th birthday of the Sultan of Kedah, Sultan Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, at Istana Anak Bukit here today.
Earlier, he was sworn in as the 12th menteri besar of Kedah before three members of the Kedah Council of Regency led by its chairman, Tan Sri Tunku Sallehuddin Sultan Badlishah.-BERNAMA
