BN / UMNO's Blatant Unmitigated Bribery:
The Education Ministry is providing free school uniforms and bags to 6,142 primary, secondary and religious school students in Manek Urai.
Kelantan UMNO liaison chief Mustapa Mohamed said he was informed of the aid allocation for the students by DPM and Education Minister Muhyiddin Yassin several days ago.
“This gesture by the ministry is to lighten the burden of the people here,” he told a news conference at the Manek Urai Barisan Nasional operations centre yesterday.
While 300 students received the free school uniforms and bags yesterday, Mustapa said the rest would be handed out in stages.
He had earlier presented the uniforms and bags to the pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan Manek Urai Baru on behalf of Muhyiddin.
There are 10 primary and 12 secondary schools as well as an Arabic-medium school in the town.

Muhyiddin's UMNO Blackmail Attempt Disguised or is it Blatant Unashamed Bribery again?
DPM Muhyiddin Yassin gave voters in Manek Urai a simple choice - either choose PAS or choose BN / UMNO and then get a new bridge for the Manek Urai State constituency.
“We can build it (the bridge), insya’allah, but there is a condition."
"It is easy - all you need to do is to ‘pangkah’ (vote), but you must vote for BN."
"If not, there would not be any new bridge."
"If you want the bridge, vote BN,”
Muhyiddin Yassin said Manek Urai will become a new development area in Kelantan , but only if the Barisan Nasional (BN) wins the constituency’s by election.
"If that (development) is what they want, we are ready to help but they must also be ready to help us," he told reporters after launching the Kelantan state Teachers’ Day celebration at the Manek Urai Baru National School.
