Let the next general election be a total triumph for Pakatan Rakyat.



Speech by M Kula Segaran, DAP National Vice Chairman and MP for Ipoh Barat at DAP Ipoh Barat Deepavali Open House held at Buntung, Ipoh  on Friday, November 09, 2012

Let the next general election be a total triumph for Pakatan Rakyat.

In the 2008 general election, BN suffered its worst ever electoral debacle due to the 308 political tsunami.

With the next general election fast approaching, the question that Malaysian should ponder is whether the BN government has learned its lessons? Has BN government changed? Has it become competent?

More importantly, is it the government that the voters should trust and support?

I shall say that despite introduction of some changes, BN is still the same old incompetent government.

BN government is not the hope for Malaysia and it cannot bring about A Better Malaysia for All.

The BN government leaders talk a lot about transformation, but the country is rampant with corruption.

Najib likes to talk about “You help me, I help you” but has he listened to what is the talk on the ground? Why only RM 500 cash handout in 55 years?

BN government has recently launched the Education Blue Print but where is the commitment that there will be fair and just treatment for vernacular schools?

The government boasts that the nation’s unemployment rate is low but many of our nurses and pilots who have graduated cannot find employment.

Is the government competent, fair and just? The answer is a Big NO!

And the BN government is still arrogant.

The Prime Minister said a few years ago that the era where the government knows best is over but the AES issue simply shows how arrogant is the government.

Despite the obvious weaknesses that the AES has, the government continues to ignore calls from the Opposition as well as some BN MPs for review of the system.

The Indians had played their Kingmaker role at the last general election and helped bring about the 308 political tsunami which opened up a new chapter in Malaysian politics.

Undoubtedly, BN has tried to make some efforts to woo Indian support.

 But has the BN government done enough despite all the praises MIC sings for BN? 

Till today, so many long issues faced by the Indian community remain unresolved, whether they are stateless Indians, high unemployment, high suicide rates, lack of Tamil schools in towns etc.

Come the next general election, the Indian community should once again rise to the occasion and join hands with other Malaysians who have been yearning for change to vote for total change.

Deepavali signifies the triumph of light over darkness. 

Let the next election be a victory for light over darkness. Let the next election bring about a bright future for Malaysians.

Let the next general election be a total triumph for Pakatan Rakyat.
