Go Down To The Ground More Often, Rosmah Advises Women Leaders | 21/03/2010
Untitled document KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 2010 (Bernama) -- Women leaders must go down to the ground more often to find out the people's needs, wife of the prime minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, said on Sunday.

"I am sure that with the God-given advantages that we have, such as being more sensitive and rational, we can work with the men to help realise the 1Malaysia concept of 'People First, Performance Now'," she said.

Rosmah spoke at a meet-the-people programme at the Taman Wahyu 2 People's Housing Project (PPR) in the Batu parliamentary constituency, here. Also present at the event were Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat and Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.

Rosmah said women leaders should also give attention to the development of the younger generation from an early age because the future of the country depended on these young people.

"They (the young generation) are vital assets of the future. If leaders are close to them, they will realise they are being guided and will respect our leadership. On the contrary, if we keep away from them, then they (the people) will also isolate themselves from us.

"It is in times such as these that we see how our women and women leaders can play a role by showing, with their motherly qualities, to ensure that the people are not only accorded priority but are also taken care of all the time," she said.

Rosmah said the contents of the meet-the-people programmes should be constantly improved to maintain and prioritise the people's welfare.

"The programme such as today's should be continual. We must not merely utter the slogan 'People First' but make it meaningful with programmes which benefit the people," she said.
