PUTRAJAYA - Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today attended the 2017 Warriors' Day celebration which was held in full military ceremony at Dataran Pahlawan Negara here.
Najib, who arrived with wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor at 9 am, was welcomed by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, as well as Armed Forces Chief General Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor and Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun.
After taking the salute from 606 members and former members of the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), the prime minister inspected a guard-of-honour mounted by the police, led by DSP Mohd Farid Padzillah.
This was then followed by the Rouse (bugle call), with the lowering of the Jalur Gemilang and poetry recitals.
It was then followed by a pantomine performance of the fight against the communists, especially on Ops Kelisa by the F Team or PDRM F-Team in its operation against the communist insurgents in Mentakab, Pahang, in 1986.
The Rouse was then sounded again with the Jalur gemilang then raised, symbolising the rise of the spirit of the security forces and the ceremony ended with the reading of the doa (prayer).
