Najib: Umno looks after the welfare of all Malaysians
PUTRAJAYA: The time has come for Umno to be the main political party looking after the interests of all Malaysians, and not only the Malays and bumiputra, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.
This, he added, was in line with the 1Malaysia concept of “People First, Performance Now” that was gaining acceptance from all the races.
“I think we have come to a stage where Umno is seen as a party which looks after the welfare and well-being of all Malaysians,” he said.
Nice words, Prime Minister. Let’s see if there is any proof in the pudding.
Let’s look at how the previous 2 prime minister did when compared to their slogans.
Dr. Mahathir – Bersih, Cekap dan Amanah
Prominant legacy of Mahathir's time is:
* 1988 Judicial Crises
* Lingam Gate
* Perwaja scandal
* Declining university ranking
* Proton car that is complacent, uncompetetive, inefficient, overcharging and passing on all that to debt-bearing and interest paying Malaysians (while the Thais cruise intheir Toyotas)
* Declining strength of the Malaysian Ringgit
Badawi – “Work with me and not work for me”
The most memorable results from his premiership is probably
*Siti Nurhaliza’s wedding,
*an expensive space tourist
*even more money splashed on a certain port facility near Bak Kut Tech Country
*his rushed legacy that created MACC of Teoh Beng Hock fame.
I certainly did not work for the above!
I hope the new Prime Minister buck the trend and can live up to the nice words. Here is a gentle reminder of his priority:-
Malays to remain government’s priority, says DPM
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 10 — The government will give priority to Malays in whatever programme it carries out, assures Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Hope the big 2 decision makers can clear the air for us tax payers because I am fed up of all these contradictions
