The Barisan Nasional (BN) is going all out to get the Chinese votes to keep Johor in Election 2013, with Datuk Seri Najib Razak approving another Foon Yew High School to be built in Pasir Gudang here.
The BN chairman said the school is to cater to the growing student population in the state and reflected the coalition’s concern for all races in the country.
Some 10,000 students are now enrolled at the main Foon Yew campus in Stulang and branch campus in Kulaijaya.
Earlier in Pontian, Najib expressed confidence that Johor BN would be returned to power with a thumping victory, securing more seats than in the 2008 general election.
The caretaker prime minister (picture) said the BN’s election machinery has been working on increased momentum across the country over the last few days than the opposition which appears to be mired in opposing views.
He said their misunderstanding and lack of consensus were visible when the allies in the opposition pact were often seen having differences in opinion on core issues.
“I’m not denying the BN has problems but a major part of our problems have been resolved unlike the opposition pact which is facing more problems and they are in a state of disarray.
“If we have problems, the opposition has even more problems. If I say the BN has no problems, that’s not right,” he was quoted as saying by state news agency Bernama.
