"Use more dignified ways"

Pak Lah: Broom not dignified.

Pak Lah do not agree with Khir Toyo on Brooms. He said brooms are not dignified and he prefers the use of more effective methods to enhance the performance of these agencies.

Abdullah said state governments should consider a “dignified” formula to discipline under-performing government agencies rather than use demeaning methods as the broom had slighted the feelings of the officers.

The officers felt humiliated and PM said the award should be scrapped. Abdullah said awards which are considered unnecessary or not well accepted by the majority should be avoided.

It is suggested that those underperformers should be given gold or diamond broom which is less demeaning. This way, the officers will not be humiliated and instead they would be far motivated.
