KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 30, 2009) : Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yesterday said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak will review and have the final say on the next course of action to solve the leadership crisis in MCA on his return from overseas.
MCA peace plan subject to UMNO approval...in future how do they "fight for Chinese" as they always claim as their primary objective? What is MCA's problem? Greed? Face? Lust? or disagreements in really solving "Chinese" problem?
Also, does this make MCA as much as a puppet of UMNO as Nizar a puppet of DAP as claimed ?
Just after GE, some quarters in MCA claimed that it was UMNO's antics resulted in BN's (actually MCA, MIC and Gerakan) defeat in the polls. Yes, UMNO won and won well in its fight in rural areas. Since the little voices was raised, there were no more keris brandishing in the annual bash.
Since then, we notice how calm Koh Tsu Koon was when his photo was torned apart by some small UMNO local leaders and subsequent kiss and make up between Gerakan and UMNO in Penang.
Now, from unprecedent open air grumble by MCA on UMNO's antics, MCA now meekly accept peace plan to be approved by UMNO? Imagine the following 2 scenario:
- in 1988, when Mahathir and Razaleigh fought and resulted in de-registration of UMNO, Ling Liong Sik or Samy Vellu stepped in before that happen and order them to accept peace plan formulated by MCA or MIC (gulp)
- in 2009, as PAS's pro-and anti unity fraction bicker and threaten to break up the party, DAP step in and tell them how to stop the bickering, kiss up and make up.
