SEBERANG JAYA: Penang Barisan Nasional (BN) today launched its state manifesto, themed “Save Penang: Penang BN Pledges” for the 14th general election (GE14).

Over 3,000 members from the coalition’s component parties were on hand to welcome party leaders â€" including state BN chairman Teng Chang Yeow â€" for the launch ceremony at The Light Hotel here.

The manifesto outlines six core pledges, with 60 initiatives to be implemented if BN were to wrest Penang from the opposition.

In his speech at the launch, Teng blasted the opposition’s manifesto as being filled with empty promises aimed at seeking popularity.

“They made promises like there is no tomorrow. Fifty-one promises made, yet none (will be) implemented.
