Tun Mahathir – Pakatan Harapan Has Lost It. Johor Sultan, Singapore Water, ECRL, Flying Cars Are Not Bread And Butter.
If a By Election is held in Jalan Masjid India tomorrow, the Pakatan Harapan will also get kicked out.
If a By Election is held in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman tomorrow, the PH will get kicked out as well.
If there are By Elections held in Kedah or the Felda areas tomorrow, the PH will get kicked out.
The decades of extreme hardwork and lifelong commitment of the Jalan Masjid India and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman business people are being trampled upon in favour of unknown hawkers and illegal warong traders who are essential components of the DBKL’s corrupted ‘street hawker’ scam. This was going on under the BN. It is still going on now under the PH.
That River of Life project is being worked at a dead snail’s pace – messing up the area for two years now, roads have been closed, sidewalks ripped up, traffic heavily disrupted resulting in heavy loss of business.
And get this – the hawkers and illegal warong operators do not even live there or vote there. Many, many of them come from as far away as Indonesia. They are NOT your voters.
Your voters are the business community who have spent their whole lives building up Jalan Masjid India and Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman to be what it is today. They are being trampled upon. These folks will also not vote for the PH anymore.
Just like in Rantau.
Before I analyse Rantau a little, here is some really, extremely very important feedback from some citizens of Rantau on what is NOT happeming in Rantau.
This is from The Star :
Chinese, 18.5% voters in Rantau, want economic, job opportunities for locals
Wong, a resident said town was very robust in 70s.
lots of people on the main road. Now sleepy town,” he said
Due to lack of opportunities, young had no choice but to leave to look for jobs
no idea what to do here
no one would leave hometown, family if they could make decent living
many friends, relatives work in Singapore, my daughter, sister, her husband, niece
Salaries higher in S’pore but hectic and more stressful working there
if there were more development, economic activities, locals would not leave
son worked in KL selling computers. salary RM2,000.
After rental, food, transport, not much left
came back to help me operate this food stall,” she said.
retail chain wanted to open branch in Kuala Sawah but could not find decent shop
Lim Wei Ling, a hawker said not much changes over past few years
I have been operating this stall for 20 years. Not much changes here.
20,926 voters in Rantau.
55% or 11,615 voters Malay
26% or 5,441 voters Indian
My comments : Well you folks are Chinese. So no one cares about you.
N’theless these comments exactly reflect the weak attitudes of the governments – before (ie the BN) and now PH.
The government is not focussing on developing the entire community.
Development has been selective, chunky, often one time only type of investment.
And often localised ‘white elephants’ that miss the target.
(Just count the number of giant sized dewan serbaguna in the country.)
Build up the peoples’ resilience to progress themselves.
The trick is to grow the people – such that the people can develop the economy by themselves and do not need the government anymore. All the people.
This is not happening.
From Teluk Datai in Langkawi to Tanjong Labian in Sabah we have wonderful towns and villages which have unlimited potential to sustain ALL our people – independent of the government.
We really do not need government except to run the schools well, the hospitals, police, the airports, ports, provide power, water and pick up the garbage. Otherwise stay out of the peoples’ way. This was the government did – but a long time ago. Maybe in the 1970s.
Given the right education, training and attitude the people will flourish.
This is not happening.
Government is standing in the way.
The government is a hindrance.
Like what is going on in Jalan Masjid India, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and in so many other places. The government is a damned hindrance.
That is why the people voted out the BN.
Now they are voting out the PH
If the BN wins again and does not perform – the people will vote them out again.
But at what cost? So much wasted time.
It will be a see-saw between the BN and the PH.
Peoples’ lives will be over before anything real can happen.
Now here are some thoughts on not just Rantau but the SEVEN by elections that have been held so far.
1. Sg Kandis in Selangor was the first PRK (Pilihanraya Kecil) which was held on 4th Aug 2018. It was less than THREE months after the 14th GE on May 9th, 2018.
4. Then there was Brader Anwar’s Port Dickson move. The Port Dickson PRK took place on 13th October 2018. (I say Brader Anwar what happened to your ‘mee segera’ PD Master Plan? Which you unveiled in a world record time of just FOUR DAYS?)
In Port Dickson the voter turnout at 58% was higher than the FOUR previous PRK’s. The PH (Anwar Ibrahim) won but still the total votes for PH decreased from 36,000 (during the 14th GE) down to 31,000. Higher turnout but less votes for PH. The votes for the BN increased.
(Note : In the FOUR previous By Elections (Sg Kandis, Sri Setia, Balakong, PD) which were all won by the PH, the vote majority for the PH was decreasing in all four seats.
But at the Cameron Highland’s PRK, the first win for the BN, the BN secured a higher vote tally than during the 14th GE. The people were really getting tired of the Pakatan Harapan – in just NINE months.
PAKATAN HARAPAN MENANG EMPAT PRK TETAPI JUMLAH UNDI BERKURANGAN.
BILA BN MENANG PRK, JUMLAH UNDI UNTUK BN BERTAMBAH PULA! )
6. Then it was the PRK in Semenyih, held on 2nd March 2019. The voter turnout was even higher at 73%. More people were coming out to vote to show their displeasure at the Pakatan Putus Harapan.
Not only did the BN win easily BUT the votes for the BN INCREASED again – from 14,000 achieved during the 14th GE to 19,000. An extra 5,000 votes.
And get this, this was formerly a PH seat – belonging to Parti Bersatu (my party!!)
7. Now the PRK Rantau has been held yesterday 13th April 2019. The voter turnout was even higher at 79%. Yes the SPR is doing a better job at getting the voters to come out to vote but the truth is the people want to show their displeasure at the PH.
The BN has won again – now its THREE PRKs in a row.
The BN / UMNO’s Mohamed Hassan defeated PH’s Dr S. Streram by a majority of 4,510 votes to win the Rantau state seat, which he has held for the past 15 years anyway. Mohamad garnered 10,397 votes to Streram’s 5,887.
There is something else to note here. The PH’s director of operations for the Rantau By Elections was none other than the Guinness Book of World Record’s “Port Dickson Master Plan In Four Days”Brader Anwar Ibrahim. The PKR’s wannabe Prime Minister.
Just SIX months ago (Oct 13th, 2018) Brader Anwar won the Port Dickson By Election. Now, despite him singing and dancing with the Indians, he has lost Rantau to the UMNO kleptocrats. Mohamed Hassan is famous for that RM10 million ‘money transfer’ case. Despite all that he still won.
THERE IS NO FREE MARKET IN MALAYSIA. THE ECONOMY IS CLOSER TO A FAILED SOCIALIST AND COMMUNIST MODEL.
Objective : take the car prices DOWN to match world market prices.
Something is seriously wrong with car prices in this country.
SPECIAL BRANCH PLEASE GO AND ‘ABDUCT’ ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY SOCIALISTS AND COMMUNISTS.
THEY ARE A THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY.
The APs INCREASE the selling price of imported goods.
The APs DO NOT ADD any value at all to the imported goods.
It has upset too many people.
