MalaysiaKini Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak made a plea to the Chinese and Indian communities in Permatang Pauh - come back to the Barisan Nasional's fold.
He told them to reject the opposition and vote for Umno's Arif Shah Omar Shah in the Aug 26 by-election.
And he had one more word of counsel - do not gamble with your children's future by supporting the opposition candidate who had been making false promises.
"Do not be easily hoodwinked by the opposition promises and fall for their trickery because if we were to believe them, we will be quarrelling with each other," he told members of these two communities in Permatang Pauh yesterday. Read more here....
Good try, Najib. But i definitely beg to differ. If you looked back into history, the Opposition never had any chance to govern this country. Even when the Opposition came close enough in 1969, some smart arses came out with that idea of a racial riot.
Howevr, your 'counselling' statement is very much welcome at a critical time like this. At least , you help to remind the Indians, Chinese and the Malay not to gamble away their children's future by continuing to support BN who had been making empty promises for the past 40 years. The Opposition never had the chance to govern so there is no track record of them making empty promises. And what the Opposition had done with the 5 states since March 8th despite all the sabotages is enough to put BN to shame.
Yes right, some of our parents made that mistake by gambling away our future but, enough is enough. Many of us took the gamble during March 8th and will continue to do so and this time it is for our own future and those of our children.
It all boils down to one simple truth... BN had failed the Country and her Rakyat Miserably.
