ARE YOU DEAF AND DUMB? Can’t you hear that the people are screaming for your attention? What’s wrong with you guys (in MIC, MCA, PPP and Gerakan)?
I am flabbergasted when I think how dumb and smug you all can be. While Najib is making his walkabouts, walking his talk and meeting the people, I do not understand what are you guys still waiting for.
Do you know that Anwar Ibrahim has mobilised his supporters, charting his political plans and future and activated his machinery to achieve his 1Dream of becoming Prime Minister after the 13th GE?
Are you all still in your slumber? Have you not learned your lessons well after losing five states in the last general election? I don’t know if there is other earth-shattering moment that can awaken you from your slumber?
In short, what I am trying to say here is that none of the component parties in the Barisan Nasional coalition has not done anything to match what Anwar is doing now.
Tell me a programme, if any, that BN members have embarked on to regain the people’s confidence, win their hearts and minds and restore BN’s battered image after the last GE.
Except jabbering on reforms and changes, none has been put into action. Tell me if you guys have achieved any results in your so-called reforms and changes.
Three years, to the next GE, is not too long and if this culture of complacency still persists among BN leaders, they can kiss good-bye to their hope of winning in the next GE.
Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau by-elections, both won by PAS and PKR, should be a barometer for them to plot strategies, plug loopholes and tighten nuts and bolts in their battle against PR.
The least they could do is to make their presence felt in each constituency. But what have they done? Nothing.
They come in droves and amass at coffee shops, restaurants, operation centres and hotels whenever there is a by-election.
They also wait for ang pow packets and meet old buddies. How many of them really work and make efforts to woo voters to support their candidate (BN)? Only a handful of them I guess.
While Anwar and his machinery are working extra hard to exterminate BN in the 13th GE, his nemesis, particularly in Umno, seem to be unperturbed over the looming threat.
The people are beginning to have confidence in Najib over his 1Malaysia aspirations, the PM for all races, People’s First and Performance Now slogan, his Walkabout sessions to be close to the rakyat and listen to their problems, his no-frills functions for Cabinet Ministers etc, etc, etc.
Soon, the confidence will fizzle out if these leaders are still dozing and snoozing.
