PETALING JAYA, July 10 — The federal government spent a whopping 71 per cent of funds for its Government Transformation Programme (GTP) on public relations exercises this year instead of using it to fight crime, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said today.
The PKR president highlighted the Najib administration’s decision to spend a large slice of its 2012 Budget to boost public perception towards the police instead of helping Malaysians feel safer on the streets.
“Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s Government Transformation Programme based on the 2012 Budget showed a greater focus on how to manage public perception than overcoming the problem of crime,” she told a news conference here.
