CHAIRMAN – SOCIAL CARE FOUNDATION
Reference is made to the news article in Free Malaysia Today dated 16th August 2017, titled “NAVARATNAM SLAMS ZAID OVER GRATITUDEPLEA”, where Tan Sri Ramon has highlighted DPM Ahmad Zahid calling for gratitude to the ruling government in addressing to pensioners and retiring civil servants.
It is time, if I may say notwithstanding the civil servants to give gratitude to God, king and country, and not to political parties of any kind. Notwithstanding and a good point to note, currently there will be quite a number of government servants will be retiring soon. As Zahid call on pensioners not to bite the hand that feeds them was in the eyes of 1.6 million government servants is inappropriate as because of the fact that the civil services is to be free of political influences.
I appeal to all Politicians and NGOs to be very careful or mindful of speeches – it should try to avoid on factors which can erode the integrity and professionalism of the public service.
