Pm Najib is at it again! In his speech in Batu Pahat, Johore, he repeated his claim, first made in Cambodia where he had attended the recent Asean Summit, that his administration has fulfilled the promises he had given the Malaysian voters.
Now he is asking the people to give him another five years to do more for them.
Dear Pm, if you have done all that you have said that you have done for Malaysians don't worry lah. We will not only give you and your administration another five years, we will be willing to give you another 100 years if you could live that long!
That is the least we grateful Malaysians could do for you for what you have claimed you have done for us.
But are you certain that you have done all that you had promised?
Many of us Malaysians have not felt any salubrious effect from any of the ETPs you said have done wonders. By the way, what are those ETPs? Sound more like ETs to me and many of us poor Malaysians?
We think you have failed miserably.
Not only has the Malaysian economy not done well, your administration had to revise downwards your once optimistic projection of a 6% growth this year to 4.5% and I am not even certain that this revised projection can be achieved.
Public debt has shot to a dangerous level to 53% of GDP and your administration even had the gumption to ask for a further supplementary budget of another Rm10 billion recently. What is this supplementary budget really for?
Corruption is still not being tackled and tackled well. You know the cow gate scandal has many Malaysians horrified at all the unsavoury revelations.
And what had you done when first the scandal surfaced? We Malaysians did not see any firm leadership from you that would have demonstrated to us that you were serious about eradicating corruption.
Instead you were vacillating and only with the constant revelations from the opposition of more and more unsavoury dealings including the purchase of high-end condominiums both here and across the causeway in Singapore including the one in Kazakhstan and even a supermarket in Singapore that finally some belated action were taken to charge the man in charge of the National Feedlot Project.
And what has happened to your 1Malaysia call? Very early on your deputy had much put paid to your pet project when he came out to publicly state he was first a Malay and only then a Malaysian and all you could was to justify for him?
If you are thinking the races are becoming more harmonious because of your 1Malaysia slogan please think again.
Despite attempts by certain quarters to constantly cause strive between the races, Malaysians have by and large remained sane. This is largely thanks to a better informed and savvy populace with access to the cyber world.
During your short tenure of 3 + years, churches had been burned and some mosques desecrated. This had never happened in Malaysia before.
And the Christians continue to be demonised with accusations that they are trying to proselytise the Malays and Muslims when there is little or no credible evidence to go on. Don't you think this is a dangerous game by some irresponsible parties that should be put a stop to?
What have you done about it?
And what about you yourself honourable sir when you yourself had made a speech wherein you had allegedly said that you would protect Putrajaya at all cost even if this involved crushed bodies? Was this meant to inspire the people or to cause fear so that they will continue to vote you and Barisan?
Was that responsible of you as the prime minister of the country responsible to every Malaysian?
All that we Malaysians ask of you is to ensure that the electoral roll is clean and the electoral process a fair one and that there is no gerrymandering of whatsoever nature and then to call a general election soon to enable the rakyat to choose whom they want to form the next government.
