It is time the voters must give themselves and Malaysia a chance.

It is time the voters must give themselves and Malaysia a chance.  

Sensing the growing voter support for Pakatan Rakyat and realising that a recent survey has put Anwar Ibrahim running neck and neck with Datuk Seri Najib as Prime Minister candidates, BN leaders have in recent weeks been warning  the voters the dangers of changing government.

This has proven that BN leaders are accepting the fact that Pakatan Rakyat could win Federal government at the next general election. 

In fact, the Johore Mentri Besar, Datuk Ghani Othman had recently told Kulai Chinese organizations that Pakatan Rakyat could win Putrajaya in the 13th general election  although he warned that the most the PR could win would be a slim majority of 5% to 10% of the parliamentary seats – i.e. a majority from 12 to 22 parliamentary seats.

In the coming weeks, we can expect BN leaders to try to frighten the voters by playing the line  that a political change will bring political disaster to the nation and people.
And the BN leader who will play such fear tactic to the maximum will be the former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad. 

Mahathir has actually warned the voters that handing over Putrajaya to the Pakatan Rakyat, even for just five years, would be dangerous.

Many things can be destroyed in five years—he was quoted as saying.

He also said that the promises offered by Pakatan to change the nation into a welfare state by waiving various fees and increasing petrol subsidy, would lead Malaysia onto the footsteps of Greece.

Does Mahathir know why there has been growing voter support for the Pakatan Rakyat? 

The people have eyes to see and they know the PR state governments created by the 308 political tsunami have performed well. 

Pakatan Rakyat not only can rule this nation, we definitely can do much better than the BN government. 

55 years of BN rule has done much ruin to this nation. BN does not deserve any more chance. 

It is time the voters must give themselves and Malaysia a chance.  

 The political change brought about by the 308 general election is a clear and concrete proof that change can bring betterment for the people.

The Indian community has played a significant role in creating the 308 political tsunami. 

Come the next general election, the Indian voters must help create a bigger political tsunami so as to bring about a new Putrajaya government and A Better Malaysia for All.
