New MCA? So What's Their Plan Next?

MCA Youth has proposed for the creation of a second Barisan Nasional deputy chairman’s post, the post will be held by MCA itself. Its understood MCA need prove whether is UMNO realy pratising the power sharing concept among BN component parties. Our PM, Pak Lah has agreed to discuss the matter at the BN convention next year. Lets we see whether MIC will make decision to propose it for Malaysian Indian or not?

Back to the party election, MCA reformed within, I can say that it will be the turning point of MCA's struggle for Malaysian Chinese betterment. Even history created when first women, Dr Ng Yen Yen make into the MCA top posts after being elected as one of the four Vice Presidents. In my opinion, MCA should emphasis on the abolishment of racial politics and voice out to merge the all component party into one BN, rather than fighting for BN's deputy chairman post. It's important to create a competent Malaysia that lead us to the political stability and unite us Malaysian with the slogan "Anak Bangsa Malaysia".

I hope MCA not only bravely voice out before the party election to gain support from its members but continues the pressure on UMNO to reform Barisan Nasional into a multi-racial party. Lastly I wish congratulation to all elected MCA reps.

You May Stop HINDRAF, But Not Our Struggle!


Why????? Why there is no room for democracy in Malaysia? We struggled for our rights; we are not terrorists as you have classified us so far. We, Malaysian Indian have fundamental rights too to defend our temples, schools, cultures, language and so on. Rather than banning HINDRAF, our problems should be addressed and proper action must be taken. Banning is not the only solution; you can ban our HINDRAF, but not our struggle to Malaysian Indian betterment. The fires of 25 Nov 2007 still burning with flames in every Malaysian Indians heart. Even our beloved Prime Minister will cry if he sit with us sincerely listen to our problem.


It is about the wish to be treated equally and to be given a fair share of opportunities in the civil, business and education sectors as well as the need to respect our places of worship in terms of indiscriminate demolitions. We did not ask for Prime Minister Post, we did not even touch “Malays special rights”, but we demand for our rights. Why you can’t fulfill this simple demand? Is that we are making baseless demand that until you need to suffer the lost of your 2/3 parliamentary majority and five states in the general election? You may have won comfortably if you deal with our problems professionally and efficiently.

Yes, we were brought to Malaysia by colonial British as normal estate labours, but we have contributed and currently still contributing to Malaysia in every sector until today. From rubber estates, oil palm estates to the construction works we shed our tear and blood. We have a great numbers of Malaysian Indian that making Malaysia to proud of them- communication tycoon Anandakrishnan, former “Asia Sprint King” Dr M Jegathesan, Air Asia owner Tony Fernandes, Mount Everest climber Mahendran, and Mohandas, 1998 Commonwealth gold medalist S.Saravanan and I have a long list here. They are “Anak Bangsa Malaysia”; the patriotism in between their heart inspired them to create history for beloved Malaysia definitely.

We contributed in every sector including economy, sports and education along with other races in Malaysia. Why we are not recognised as a rightful citizen? Aren’t we Malay, Chinese, and Indian are under umbrella of Malaysia flag? Is it too hard to treat us equally? There are a lot of organisations which race based and struggling for their race betterments. We as well have HINDRAF to hope on; you banned HINDRAF without dealing our problems. You detained our our heroes in ISA. If you are the true leaders you should brave to meet our heroes face to face and lay out the problems decently with integrity.

The raise of HINDRAF is because of the failure of MIC to care for Malaysian Indian. We need a safe place for our children, grand children, great grand children….. Again, I would like state that you may stop HINDRAF, but not our struggle! We will struggle to the end till our demand fulfilled!

Offline For Few Days..... Sorry

Awaited Parliament Session

The first-day sitting of the Dewan Rakyat today after Hari Raya Puasa will probably set new politics rating records in Malaysia. The session right after 16th of September pledge by Anwar Ibrahim to topple Barisan Nasional government that lead by premier Datuk seri Abdullah Ahmad badawi is something awaited by all Malaysian.


Anyhow, the session will start with the debate on 2009 budget. Anwar will the first to speak on the budget than followed by Lim Guan Eng. Most of the opposition leaders think that with the current economic crisis, firmly believe that the government, especially Finance minister, Datuk Seri Naib Tun Razak should revise or restructure brand new budget for all Malaysian to avoid huge economic disaster.

At the sam time, history may created in the next sessions if Pakatan Rakyat final attack to seize the federal government from Barisan Nasional succeeded. As Anwar promised previously, 31 lawmakers defecting to PR from BN helps to form the brand new federal government and it could be the last round for PR in debut to take over the premierships.

The most awaited parliament session is just few hours to go. We wait and witness what will take place in the parliament tomorrow.

Towards Two-Party System

The formation of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) helps to transform our nation’s political arena. Malaysia’s politics has been dominated by a single coalition for more than 50 years, the formation of PR coalition make it as the alternative to Barisan Nasional (BN). Vote for BN or PR enable one of them to rule for 5 years. In the duration, people will make decision on whom to vote, this guarantee the nations progress. I am not talking in favor of supporting any party, but it reflects the real democracy in our nation. Let people decide which coalition qualified to lead and rule. I believe that every citizen expect the changes from the new ruling government. Of course, the commitment surely to the coalition that fulfill people’s expectations and who kept their promises.


Such two-coalition party system, which allows voters to choose two viable parties. Developed nations who practice this system such as the United States, Britain, and Canada, has proven system's effectiveness. This situation also happens in developing countries like Jamaica, and India. There are very clear move by most of the developing nations towards the form of two-party system; hence I optimist that the PR coalition will stay on track to compete with BN. Not like the circumstances in 1999, which the Barisan Alternatif (BA) coalition shattered because of their ideology dissimilarity. DAP, PAS, KeADILan and PRM made their debut in the 10th general election. After the election, DAP decided to leave the coalition and remain as a coalition-free party after the lost of the DAP hardcore-Lim Kit Siang and Karpal Singh and the conflict of ideologies. PAS and KeADILan as Barisan Alternatif (BA) continued their struggle in 2004 general election.


Now in 2008, after 50 years of independent, the coalition becomes stronger with a different story. They emerged at the end, right after few months of general election. This time with a new identity as Pakatan Rakyat. The joint of three parties- DAP,PAS and PKR has agreed to give emphasis on the national issue rather than struggling their party's ideology. The win in 5 states and the denial of the 2/3 majority in parliament will create a new dimension of Malaysia. Both coalitions must work all out to fulfill election's manifesto.

I hope the coalition never destroyed like happened after 10th general election, ruling party must makes it clear that peoples interest comes first before party ideology.
