No need to change FT anthem, say MPs

Source: (2/10/2010)

FOUR DAP MPs from Kuala Lumpur said there was no necessity to change the Federal Territories anthem Maju dan Sejahtera (Progressive and Prosperity).

The MPs also said students should have been consulted since they sang the anthem almost every week.

Lim Lip Eng (Segambut), Fong Kui Lun (Bukit Bintang), Tan Kok Wai (Cheras) and Dr Tan Seng Giaw, who held a joint press conference yesterday, said anthems were not a fashion statement that could be changed according to time.

The MPs said there were more important issues under the FT Ministry that needs to be looked into such as the Plaza Rakyat, the Greater KL projects as well as the public transportation.

They said the existing anthem could have been modified to a faster tempo instead of introducing a new anthem.
