The Kedai 1Malaysia (1Malaysia Shop) video clip is saying that the increase in prices of consumers goods is owing to DAP businessmen arbitrarily increasing the prices of goods for two reasons. One, to make a tidy profit. Two, to blame the government and thereby to gain politically from it.
The clip goes on to say that as the result of the price increases, the government has to start the Kedai 1Malaysia or 1Malaysia Shop where prices of goods are much lower to help out the rakyat.
To put the blame on DAP for the increasing prices of consumer goods and to praise the government for helping the rakyat by opening the Kedai 1Malaysia is not only disingenuous but also really bordering on the ridiculous and bizarre.
One must remember that increase in the prices of consumer goods is surely something not within the purview of the DAP.
For example, the increase in the price of petrol which has largely led to increases in the price of other consumer goods, is solely within the purview of the cabinet with the Prime Minister as its head.
Also, essential goods like cooking oil, flour, rice and others are considered controlled items and only the government of the day can decide on any increase in their prices.
Much of the blame in fact should be placed on the Barisan led government which has failed to prudently manage the Malaysian economy.
No wonder the DAP is incensed by this blatant insinuation that they are to blame for the price increases of consumer goods.
DAP is planning to lodge a police report on the matter, claiming that the Kedai 1Malaysia video clip is seditious. They are also planning to write to You-Tube to withdraw the video from circulation.
The Kedai 1Malaysia video clip can fool a lot of kampung folks on whom the ruling Barisan coalition government relies for much of their support.
