Tuanku Abdul Halim's passing a huge loss to the nation, says Zahid

ALOR SETAR: Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah's passing is a huge loss to the country, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic).
Dr Ahmad Zahid, who represented Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who is away in the United States, arrived at 12.20pm Tuesday at Istana Anak Bukit here.
He told reporters that the late Sultan was a very disciplined, punctual, kind-hearted and a down-to-earth person who always had the rakyat in his heart and mind.
"I have known Tuanku since I was the Defence Minister and organised two LIMA (Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition) and also met Tuanku on many official visits during his time as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
"His punctuality and discipline is an example to many of us. He was a personality who always wanted the best for the nation and the people.
"I also remember his advice to me when he returned to Kedah after serving as the Agong, when Tuanku told me to always be by the Prime Minister's side and assist him.
"I will not forget that advice and will do the best that I can to always be by the PM's side and to assist him," he said.
