The 13th general election is the best time for Kedah to return to BN as the PAS state government had not carried out their responsibility for the past five years, caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said today.

He said the Kedah government was only eligible for a Grade E as their report card was not impressive at all and they had failed to develop the state.

"The next five years are critical as we want to make Malaysia a high-income nation. It's going to be hard work," he said at the foundation laying ceremony for the Jerlun Sports Centre in Sanglang, Jitra. 

He added that it was not wise to maintain the opposition coalition as the government because they were not capable of developing the state.
Serious matter
Muhyiddin further remarked that after five years a government should be able to present their achievements and deliver what was promised when they took over.

"They should have kept their promises. The Kedah state government has failed. Forming a government is a very serious matter and a huge responsibility.
"People should choose the party which can be trusted and able to fulfill their needs," he said.

On the other hand, BN has carried on the tradition of providing for the well-being of the people, he added.

"By 2020 we also want Kedah to be a developed and successful state. Can we rely on PAS to achieve this if they continue to rule?
"This is our future we're talking about," he said.

He emphasised that these goals could be achieved if people of Kedah decided to give BN the mandate at both state and federal levels.
