We Must Also Walk Our Talk April 8, 2009

The just-concluded tri-elections in Bukit Gantang, Bukit Selambau and Batang Ai has one message for Barisan Nasional, the Government, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and his team – you have to work doubly hard from now.

And it has to be espoused, practiced and translated into the language spoken by the ordinary rakyat or failure is doomed for them.

As expected, we did not hear any complaints, condemnation or denunciation from the Opposition parties over the results of the tri-elections.

They are very happy and pleased with the results as they won in two of the three by-elections. They would have sung a different song had Barisan won in all the by-elections. Well, that is the mentality of the Opposition. We cannot blame them as they will just oppose anything the government does, even though deep inside them they know it is something good but they will oppose just for the sake of opposing.

An enormous task awaits Najib ahead as his words are just not enough to re-convince the people. They have yet to see if those words are really put into practice and actions.

Tomorrow, Najib will announce his new Cabinet line-up. The rakyat will once again put Najib on “trial” to see if he walks his talks.

Some of the big names in Umno that are likely to be excluded from the line up include Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar, Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed, Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib, Information Minister Datuk Shabery Chik and Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Azalina Othman.

Minister in Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Nazri Tan Sri Aziz may also be dropped despite his good showing in Parliament as he does not hold any important position in Umno now.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin maybe moved to Johor as the new Mentri Besar replacing Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman who lost his supreme council seat in the last Umno general election.

Whoever Najib appoints, what matters most now is the people as they are the ones who will determine the future of this country and who should lead them.

“Today, I ask you to join me in this task of renewing Malaysia. I urge you to rise to the challenge of building a 1Malaysia. People First. Performance Now,” Najib said in his first public address as the Prime Minister.

But let’s remember that Najib cannot do it alone without our support. As much as we want Najib to walk his talk, we must also play our role to help him.

We must also walk our talk if we wish to see a prosperous and peaceful Malaysia in our quest to build 1Malaysia.

1Malaysia by UMNO? You got to be joking! It’s just rhetoric as was “Bersih, Cekap, Amanah” and the ultimate crap ‘ work with me, not for me’. After 50 years and Billions of Petronas monies spent, rakyat are still scraping a living while UMNOputras became instant millionaire…1Malaysia? Yeah, right! Its RM1forMalaysian and Billions RM for UMNO and UMNOputras…Still trying to dupe the people, huh? Unbelievable! You guys don’t have a conscience at all, yes?

Dear Hamba (Slave), I would agree with you on your view of 1Malaysia vision at this current time because there are many people like you do not believe in it. If you were to think deeply enough you will find that the policies made at the national level is fair and just, its only when these policies are interpreted badly by the executives that become distorted. For example there has never been a policy that all participation in open tenders MUST be bumiputera companies but the executives impose such a rule! I strongly support Datuk Seri Najib’s vision of 1Malaysia, nevertheless YAM PM MUST look into its implementation so that the pen pushers behind the desk and little Napoleons in the ministries does not derail this good virtue.
