Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun totally disagreed that having three Deputy Chief Ministers in the State Cabinet is not a reflection of Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s 1Malaysia concept.
Responding to the statement of UPKO Youth Chief Arthur Sen yesterday, Masidi said that it is good to have three DCMs as it reflected the State unique community groups.
“The 3 DCMs reflect that we have our own local community representatives” he said, adding that all three DCMs have their own responsibility in serving their communities.
“So the question of wasting the taxpayer’s money does not arise,” he said during launching of Craft Exotica 2009 at the Sabah Museum here.
Yahya when asked to comment on the statement, he said it was Arthur’s opinion.
“In this democratic country, we are all entitled to voice our own opinions or comments. I do not make any comment” he said after launching the FAMA Induction Course at the National Public Administration Campus here.
