Kalu satu lawan satu,Najib dah lama lari malam...


Kata orang, untuk menang dan mencapai kejayaan, rintangan dan halangan memang selalu mendatang dan tidak dapat dielakkan.

Ia adalah lumrah, tetapi sebenarnya itulah kunci kejayaan dan menguatkan lagi semangat untuk terus berjuang.

Dalam hal ini, Pakatan Harapan juga tidak terkecuali. Satu demi cabaran yang datang, namun sehingga ini ia tidak menghalang usaha gabungan itu untuk menuju kejayaan menumbangkan UMNO, BN dan seterusnya menyelamatkan negara ini daripada kerosakan yang berpanjangan yang diakibatkan oleh Najib Razak.

Meskipun jika melalui pertandingan satu lawan satu, Najib sudah lama lari malam, namun dengan pelbagai sumber, termasuk kuasa wang tanpa had yang dimilikinya, beliau akhirnya berjaya melunakkan hati Hadi Awang dan Pas untuk menjauhi Pakatan Harapan.

Berdasarkan pelbagai petunjuk dan kecenderungan Hadi dan Pas sekarang, pertandingan tiga penjuru memang tidak dapat dielakkan.

Tetapi, berdasarkan perkembangan terkini, perlawanan tiga penjuru pun tidak banyak menjejaskan peluang Pakatan Harapan. Kuncinya ialah rakyat secara majoritinya sudah terlalu bosan dan meluat dengan Najib, UMNO dan BN.

Pelbagai tindak-tanduk dan skandal yang melingkari Najib membuatkan rakyat semakin sukar untuk terus memilihnya mentadbir negara ini. 

Jika sehingga pilihanraya akan datang pun sudah ramai yang tidak sanggup berketuakannya, apatah lagi untuk tempoh lima tahun seterusnya.

Rakyat mahu mengakhiri eranya bersama UMNO dan BN daripada terus berkuasa kerana tidak sanggup lagi menanggung derita disamping lakonannya yang menyakitkan hati rakyat seolah-olah beliaulah yang terbaik mentadbir negara ini.

Untuk itu, tiga penjuru tidak akan mampu menyelamatkan Najib, malah Pas yang mahu jadi penyelamat itu pun akan dihanyutkan sekali oleh kuasa perubahan yang sentiasa membuak-buak di dada rakyat.

Selepas Najib berjaya melunakkan Pas untuk menjadikan pertandingan tiga penjuru dan langkah itu pula dilihat tidak lagi berkesan, kini urusan pendaftaran Pakatan Harapan adalah sasaran seterusnya.

Najib tahu jika Pakatan Harapan berjaya bertanding menggunakan satu logo untuk menyaingi BN dalam PRU 14 nanti, peluangnya untuk kekal berkuasa adalah semakin tipis. Baca seterusnya...

Civil servants are also the Rakyat of Malaysia. They're working for the government, not for BN/UMNO. BN is just a party (elected unscrupulously) to form the government for the day.

Dear Minister, please show the rule/regulation/order that prohibits teachers from supporting the opposition. They are citizens, taxpayers and voters. Do you mean to say they have no right to vote according to their conscience? That they have no right to choose, but to "menurut perintah" and vote for the BN? For those who may not be aware, there are about 500,000 teachers, not including their spouses and other family members. It is a big vote bank - the biggest group of civil servants, even more than the combined armed forces. By threats or blackmail, as many of them as possible must be intimidated not to bite the hand that feeds them. - Ravinder

What happens when Opposition wins GE14? Should all those supporting Najib resign? Such a stupid statement. - Awang Top

Judiciary thinks ‘govt can do no wrong’...

Former Federal Court judge Gopal Sri Ram today rapped the judiciary for repeatedly striking out lawsuits involving the prime minister and acting as if 'the government can do no wrong'.

“The present crop of judges […] find it a terrible nuisance to bother the government with all these suits.

“And therefore they (see these suits as being) vexatious and frivolous and should not have been brought to court in the first place.

“The old maxim now lives but in different words, ‘the king can do no wrong’ has now become ‘the government can do no wrong’. It’s sad,” said Sri Ram.

He said this in his keynote address entitled 'Challenging the constitutionality of pre-Merdeka law' at the opening of the Selangor Bar’s new auditorium in Shah Alam.

He said he based his criticism on how statements of claims which named Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak or his wife Rosmah Mansor as defendants were often thrown out of court.

“Even if the statement of claim says RM42 million went into (the PM’s personal bank) account from SRC International,” he said.



Former law minister Zaid Ibrahim's suit against Najib and troubled state investment firm 1MDB in the Kuala Lumpur High Court was previously struck out after judicial commissioner Rohani Ismail considered the suit 'frivolous and vexatious'.

Suits by Pakatan Harapan chairperson Dr Mahathir Mohamad and DAP lawmaker Tony Pua against 1MDB and Najib were also similarly struck out.

Based on publicly available documents, money from SRC International - a former 1MDB subsidiary - was allegedly deposited into Najib's personal account in two transactions - on Dec 26, 2014, and on Feb 10, 2015.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is presently conducting an investigation into SRC International.

Sri Ram added that while he had his disagreements with court judgements in the past, him and former judges then were defending a government that was honest and cared for the people.

“They were not defending kleptocrats,” he said.

Najib has repeatedly claimed he was unaware of the money from SRC International and Attorney-General Mohamed Apandi Ali has cleared him of any wrongdoing.

'Kleptocrat' has been the label used by Pakatan Harapan supporters to describe Najib. - mk

Sir, the judiciary is being crucified systematically and yet we continue to hear sermons that seem to prop up the fast falling judiciary of 'examplary independence' from some quartets including the powers that be. Something must be done. It calls for leaders and professionals with a clear conscience to come together to rescue the spine of a nation's future. I pray, being an ordinary senior citizen, that salvation will appear soon. - J. D. Lovrenciear

Most of our Malaysian judges have become the worst boot-lickers of UMNO 's political leaders, leave alone the EC, police, MACC and civil servants. They are all living in fear and treated like slaves under Najib's rule.  If only they can can realize that they are true Muslims and that God has created them to live freely without fear and be slaves, they can easily change the ruling Govt in GE14. - Anonymous Hotplate

The judges think they duties are to protect the Government of the day irregardless if they have committed crimes. - goldee

This is the boundary that SPR is proposing for N25 Kajang in Selangor. They have not solved the issue of gerrymandering and breaking of local ties. The Kajang town is being split into several different DUNs. Not sure if it looks more like a bird or a roti canai. We need 100,000 voters in Selangor to object to the unconstitutional redelineation. If not, SPR will bulldoze it through in parliament in March.

Karton dalam FELDA...


1. Bila kita tonton cerita kartun dalam TV, kita kena sedia lihat kisah-kisah temberang..contohnya watak tertentu  dah kena hempap dengan sesuatu yang berat, badan dah hancur berkecai, lepas tu boleh hidup balik. Itulah misteri kartun.

2. Bila lihat isu tanah Felda di Jalan Semarak , saya  sorang lah, rasa mcm tonton cerita kartun juga. Mana taknya? Mula-mula kata tanah Felda bernilai jutaan ringgit dah kena pindahmilik kpd sebuah syarikat.

3. Lepas tu, keluar kenyataan Felda tak dapat sesen pun drp transaksi bernilai juta tu.

4. Lepas tu, ada laporan polis. Lepas tu , polis ambil keterangan gn dan keterangan mantan Pengerusi Felda yang diambil paling last diambil sebab katanya dia di luar negara. Tu tak termasuk sebelum ni yang meskipun ada tuduhan skandal lain yang dikaitkan dengan beliau , dia masih dihantar ke SPAD oleh "orang tu".

5. Lepas tu, timbul berita kata mantan Pengerusi Felda tu sebenarnya dah balik dan ada di Malaya - siap boleh pengerusikan mesyuarat UMNO lagi. Wartawan nampak dia kat Malaya..polis mcm tak nampak je atau sengaja tak nampak..wallahu 'alam.

6. Ya beliau akhirnya dipanggil juga..isunya bukan dia dipanggil juga akhirnya, tapi kenapa dia boleh tak dipanggil lebih awal dari tu dalam keadaan dia ada kat dlm negara..itu isunya , tapi itulah kartunnya.



7. Yang terbaru kata tanah tu dah dipindahmilik semula kpd Felda semula tanpa kos..ini lagi kartun. 

8 Yang lagi best kartunnya , meskipun dlm Akta kata transaksi yang "dubious" tu perlu dapat persetujuan menteri yang jaga Felda- MO1 lah , Pengerusi Felda yang sekarang kata PM tak terlibat ( ikut laporan media lah)

9.Meskipun dikatakan MO1 tak terlibat ,tapi itu bukan bermakna dia tak perlu bertanggungjawab. Bila melibatkan kuasa dia utk "approve" ( termasuk kuasa utk tak approve lah ), isu dia terlibat atau tidak , bagi saya, dah tak relevan.

10. Jika dia approve pun dia bertanggungjawab, jika dia tak approve pun dia kena juga bertanggungjawab. Sebab macam mana dlm keadaan dia tak approve benda tu boleh diteruskan juga..awat dia tak tahu? Dia buat apa selama ni?  Patutnya polis kena juga panggil dia untuk bagi keterangan. Tapi dlm cerita kartun saya rasa bukan polis yang akan panggil dia , silap haribulan polis pula yang kena dipanggil oleh dia.. Kan cerita kartun.mesti ada unsur humour!

11. Lagi satu MO1 yang lantik mantan Pengerusi Felda tu..so dia tak boleh lari daripada tanggungjawab juga. Jika tak dari segi legal sekalipun, paling kurang dari segi politik atau moral.Kalau dia masih ada moral lagi lah. 

Tu lah cerita kartun..saya harap isu Felda ni bukan cerita kartun lah YB JB.

Arab Saudi ikut Malaysia 
perkenal GST, kata Najib...

Arab Saudi mengikut jejak Malaysia dengan memperkenalkan Cukai Barangan dan Perkhidmatan (GST), dakwa Perdana Menteri Najib Razak hari ini.

Katanya, walaupun rakyat merungut mengenai sistem percukaian baru yang didakwa membebankan itu, negara lain pula mahu mengikut tindakan Malaysia.

“Saya baru habiskan lawatan kerja ke Arab Saudi. Mereka ikut model ekonomi kita.


“Kita laksanakan GST, mereka pun buat. Orang sana tak merungut bila kena bayar GST. (Tetapi) Rungutan banyak di Malaysia,” kata Najib hari ini pada majlis bersama pesara polis.


Arab Saudi memperkenalkan Cukai Tambah Nilai (VAT), sejenis GST bermula pada Januari 2018.


“Orang merungut bila kita naikkan harga minyak hanya tiga sen. Di sana (Saudi), harga minyak naik 126%,” kata Najib.


Katanya, rakyat Malaysia juga menerima banyak bantuan kerajaan yang tidak seperti negara lain, bantuan itu termasuklah Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M).


Najib kata rakyat di Saudi tak kisah pun dengan GST dan harga minyak. Rakyat Malaysia saja kecoh.

Najib hanya nampak bab harga minyak dan GST sahaja. Dia tak bandingkan berapa pendapatan warga Saudi  dan kos hidup di Saudi berbanding Malaysia. 

Saya ambil contoh mudah, gaji jururawat dari Malaysia yang bekerja di Saudi puratanya 3 kali ganda berbanding di Malaysia. Jururawat gred 1 menerima gaji sekitar RM8 ribu, gred 2 RM10 ribu dan gred 3 RM14 ribu. Ini baru satu contoh.

Di Saudi tak ada tol dan tak ada cukai jalan. Sebab itu mereka tak kisah pakai kereta besar. Kereta saiz  seperti di Saudi kalau digunakan di Malaysia, pemiliknya akan termenung panjang bila nak bayar cukai jalan. 

Rakyat Saudi juga menikmati pendidikan percuma. Rakyat Malaysia terpaksa bergolok bergadai bila nak masuk universiti. Di Saudi tak ada PTPTN. Di Malaysia PTPTN dah jadi jembalang yang menakutkan dan mengejar para graduan.

Kos perubatan di Saudi sangat murah untuk warga Saudi. Di Malaysia, kalau kita kemalangan dan ada bahagian tulang yang patah, paling kurang sekitar RM2 ribu perlu disediakan secara tunai sebelum pembedahan dilakukan. Belum lagi caj item-item lain. Ini cerita di hospital kerajaan, bukan hospital swasta.

Harga kereta juga usah bandingkan antara Saudi dan Malaysia. Jauh lebih murah di sana. Tentunya ada sebab dan alasan boleh dikemukakan kenapa harga kereta di Malaysia lebih mahal. Tapi hakikatnya memang ia mahal!

Begitu juga kos perkhidmatan telekomunikasi yang boleh dinikmati dengan kos yang jauh lebih murah di Saudi berbanding Malaysia.

Malah harga air mineral di Malaysia lebih mahal dari Saudi.

Sebab itu bila Najib nak bercakap tentang GST dan harga minyak di Saudi, Najib juga perlu bercakap dalam bab pendapatan dan kos hidup di negara sendiri. - Dr Azman Ibrahim. 

Why Mahathir’s leadership of the 
opposition confuses Kedah voters...

It has been an eventful past two weeks in the Pakatan Harapan (PH) calendar. With seat allocations settled and Dr Mahathir Mohamed and Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail named candidates for prime minister and deputy prime minister respectively, pundits are flooding the media with predictions and projections. Last week, Ibrahim Suffian of Merdeka Centre called the next general election for UMNO given PAS’s plans to contest 40 parliamentary seats across Malaysia.

The theory is PAS contesting in three-cornered fights would be instrumental in splitting votes going to the opposition, especially the Malay vote. Experts say this plays into the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN)’s hand and contributes to their chances of scoring a much desired goal of a two-thirds majority in parliament. PAS is losing its appeal. A survey commissioned by ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute in Johor showed that PAS received only lukewarm responses from Malay respondents.

My research in rural areas in a few states including Kedah which PAS wrestled from the BN in 2008 corroborates these views – questions about PAS often elicit a noncommittal, even wholly uninterested response. It seems PAS has become the “no other choice so PAS is my second choice” vote simply because its conservative Muslim credentials hold some appeal for Malay voters.

How credible then is their ability to retake Kedah?

MOST YOUNGER KEDAH VOTERS SUPPORT THE OPPOSITION

The home state of Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Kedah has been a relatively loyal UMNO supporter, with the exception of the 2008 election when PAS’s Azizan Abdul Razak became chief minister. It has since returned to the UMNO fold, after the BN won the state by a small margin in 2013. The occasional oversized PAS flag can be seen on a drive through picturesque rural Kedah villages today. Yet conversations with the people do not seem to elicit much enthusiasm for the party.

Instead there has been simmering excitement about the potential of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), better known locally as Parti Raya given images of Malaysia’s national flower, the hibiscus (bunga raya), on its party flag. Support for the opposition finds roots in younger Kedah residents. In multiple focus group sessions and informal conversations that I’ve had with Malay Kedah voters in November 2017, the responses were clearly split by age.

The fervour of those aged 35 and below seemed near the point of boiling over. They were clearly excited about the elections and impatient to vote. They were also unabashed in their support of Parti Raya and claimed that most of their peers were on board. These younger rural voters consumed the latest political news and viewpoints through their smartphones and social media. Most declared that they had already decided who they would vote for.

Like other parts of Malaysia, economic concerns continue to loom large in most voters’ political calculus. Across all ages, the biggest issues for rural Kedah residents were the high cost of living, especially that of petrol and daily goods, stagnant salaries, and what they say is the near impossibility of affording homes.

While they all acknowledged that they benefited from the social assistance scheme BR1M and had no trouble accessing the handouts, those below 35 said that the current government took back much more than what it gave.

The most common word heard at my focus groups with young Kedah residents was kecewa – disappointment with the ruling party. Youths said they were eager and willing to give the opposition a shot, regardless of their families’ political loyalty.

OLDER VOTERS NOSTALGIC FOR BETTER TIMES

On the other hand, older respondents seemed nostalgic for better times under Dr Mahathir when prices were stable and the Ringgit was under control. Yet, his return to politics to work with the opposition has created some uncertainty for them, when he has decided to work with the “Chinese DAP”.

Still, most older respondents in my study said they remained loyal to UMNO – primarily because UMNO has upheld Malay rights and because their family had always voted for UMNO. This is despite some frustration over the lack of progress and stalled improvement projects over the past year, after Mukhriz Mahathir was ousted from his post as chief minister and expelled from UMNO.

Most older voters explain away their discomfort by placing the blame squarely on corrupt and self-serving middle-level party members from UMNO. To them, the UMNO senior leadership remained committed to the betterment of its citizenry but the country seemed to be facing a plague of dishonest officers such as those investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.

Whether these voters will match their words with deeds will only be known at the ballot box, in a culture where people keep up with appearances in outwardly pledging loyalty to UMNO. All things considered, before last weekend, my guess would be that Kedah would waver in its support for UMNO.

But now, younger voters who had hoped that the opposition would shake up Malaysian politics with younger political leaders like Mukhriz Mahathir and Azmin Ali may be stumped at the prospect of voting for a face inextricably linked to old UMNO politics. At the same time, with Mahathir at the helm, older voters have to decide whether to remain with UMNO or vote for the leader they’ve credited for many years of economic growth.

While some pundits have said that Mahathir’s candidacy for prime minister has clearly strengthened the opposition’s hand against UMNO, perhaps the story in swing state Kedah is less clear. - Serina Rahman,,channelnewsasia.com

Sapa terima RM270 juta bila tanah Felda dipindah milik...


Polis dan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) perlu menyiasat penglibatan Datuk Seri Najib Razak dalam isu pertukaran hakmilik tanah Felda.

“Perdana Menteri adalah menteri yang bertangungjawab ke atas Felda dan pelupusan aset Felda yang mana memerlukan kelulusan Perdana Menteri.

“Seksyen 3(3)(C) dan 3(3)(C)(a) Akta Pembangunan Tanah 1956 memerlukan Felda mendapatkan kelulusan menteri yang bertanggungjawab untuk memasuki apa apa perjanjian dengan pemaju, termasuklah projek usaha sama.

Pengerusi Felda Tan Sri Shahrir Samad mempertahankan Najib yang kononnya tidak tahu menahu bahawa tanah Felda ditukar hak milik.

Shahrir dalam sidang media semalam mengumumkan Felda mendapat kembali hak tanah di Jalan Semarak selepas ia dipindah milik kepada Synergy Promenade Sdn Bhd, pemaju projek Kuala Lumpur Vertical City, melalui transaksi meragukan sejak 2015.



Beliau turut menegaskan bahawa proses mendapatkan semula hak milik itu dibuat tanpa sebarang kos, namun ia tetap menimbulkan persoalan yang lain.

“Persoalan yang timbul adakah benar-benar penyerahan semula hakmilik tanah tersebut dibuat tanpa sebarang balasan sedangkan Tan Sri Shahrir Samad sebelum ini mendakwa Felda tidak menerima bayaran RM270 juta untuk penjualan tanah tersebut. 

“Ini adalah kerana adalah tidak logik untuk syarikat tersebut menyerahkan semula tanah tersebut tanpa sebarang balasan. Untuk apa mereka perlu menanggung kerugian sebanyak RM270 juta.

“Maka, persoalan seterusnya, siapakah sebenarnya yang menerima bayaran RM270 juta untuk pindah milik tanah Felda tersebut?” soal mereka.



Timbul persoalan sama ada ia ada berkait rapat pengumuman Shahrir bahawa projek Kuala Lumpur Vertical City akan diteruskan kerana berbeza dengan kenyataan yang dibuat beliau sebelum ini.

“Pengerusi Felda Tan Sri Shahrir Samad pada 21 Disember 2017 mengumumkan bahawa Lembaga Pengarah Felda yang bermesyuarat pada 15 Disember 2017 memutuskan untuk tidak lagi meneruskan projek Kuala Lumpur Vertical City.

“Namun, Tan Sri Shahrir Samad semalam menyatakan sebaliknya apabila bersetuju membenarkan syarikat tersebut meneruskan projek pembangunan tersebut,” ujar mereka.

Sehubungan itu polis dan SPRM perlu meneruskan siasatan berhubung isu pindah milik tanah tersebut kerana Shahrir sendiri mengakui bahawa ia meragukan.

“Penyerahan semula hakmilik tanah tersebut tidak membersihkan nama dan perbuatan jenayah mereka yang terlibat,” tegas mereka. – Roketkini.com

Hindraf's "zero votes for BN"and 
the Indian vote in 31 marginal seats...

Many people are not aware that in the last elections, the Barisan Nasional (mostly UMNO) has won 31 Parliamentary seats in rural areas with razor thin majorities. These are the "marginal seats".  There are another 59 State seats (DUN) which were also won by the BN with slim majorities.

Hence Rafizi Ramli's calculation that a 2% swing in the Malay vote alone can mean that the BN/UMNO can lose these 31 Parliamentary and 59 State seats.

There is however another factor.  In many of these seats, the number of Indian voters far outnumbers the slim majorities by which the BN won those marginal seats.  Here are some numbers. My comments in blue.

Kerjasama antara Pakatan Harapan dan HINDRAF akan tumbangkan BN

PERAK -

1. Parlimen – Bagan Datoh (2013)
Majoriti  - 2,108  (UMNO Zahid Hamidi)
Undi India – 9,423
(ostb : This is Zahid Hamidi's seat. The number of Indian voters is 4.5 times Zahid Hamidi's slim majority of 2,108.  If just 1054 Indians switch over, Zahid Hamidi is history.) 

2. Parlimen – Bukit Gantang (2013)
Majoriti – 986
Undi India – 6,978
(ostb : In Bukit Gantang, the Indian voters are SEVEN TIMES more than the thin margin of 986 votes. If only 493 Indians switch their votes, the BN will lose Bukit Gantang.)

3.  Parlimen - Teluk Intan (2013)   
Majoriti -  238
Undi India – 11,491
(ostb :  Indian voters are 48 TIMES more than the razor thin majority of 238 votes. If only 119 Indians switch over, the BN will lose Teluk Intan too.)

JOHOR

4.  Parlimen – Labis (2013)
Majority -  353
Undi India – 5,698
(ostb : Woi, siapa MP Labis ah? Itu Cina MCA kah? Indian voters are 16 TIMES more than the slim majority of 353 votes. Only 178 Indians need to swing away for the BN to lose Labis as well.)

5. Parliament – Tebrau (2013)
Majority – 1767
Undi India – 5,818
(ostb : Indian voters are THREE TIMES more than the 1767 majority. If only 884 Indians switch votes, the BN will lose Tebrau also.)  

6. Parliment – Pulai (2013)
Majoriti – 3226
Undi India – 11,090
(ostb : Indians are 3.4 TIMES the slim majority of 3226 votes. 1613 Indians can send the BN packing in Pulai as well.)

KEDAH

7. Parlimen – Jerai (2013)
Majoriti – 1,196
Undi India – 4,688
(ostb : Indian voters are almost FOUR TIMES the winning margin of 1196 votes. Only 598 Indians need to switch votes and the BN will lose Parlimen Jerai as well.)

8.  Parlimen – Merbok (2013)
Majority – 4,122
Undi India – 15,033
(ostb : This is my favorite.  Indian voters are 3.64 times the slim margin of 4,122 votes. If 2061 Indians switch votes, the BN will lose Merbok as well.)

9. Parlimen – Kulim Bandar Baru
Majoriti -  1891
Undi India – 7,857
(ostb :  Indians are FOUR TIMES the winning margin of 1891 votes. If 946 Indians switch votes, ten the BN will lose Kulim Bandar Baru too.)

Di atas adalah contoh bagaimana gabungan antara PH dan HINDRAF boleh mengalahkan BN.

The question is "Can Mr P Waythamoorthy and his Hindraf boys swing the Indian vote?"

Lets look at some facts and real numbers. 

During the 12th GE  (GE12 in 2008) – which was held AFTER that famous Hindraf demonstration  
Total Indian votes in GE12 was  660,340 votes.
Indian votes for Pakatan Rakyat was 470,954 (71.32%)
Indian votes for BN was  189,385 (28.68%)

Do take note that 2008 was the great watershed year in Malaysian politics when the BN (under Slumberjack) first lost the 2/3 majority in Parliament. This was also due in some part to the Hindraf campaigning AGAINST the BN in 2008.

Then at the 13th General Elections (GE13) things switched around. Najib  signed a pact with the Hindraf and Waythamoorthy.  The BN would provide hundreds of millions of Ringgit for Indian development and put Waythamoorthy in charge of the Indian programs.

In return the Hindraf would campaign for the BN, which Hindraf and Mr Waythamoorthy did quite successfully. The result was that in the GE13 in 2013, while the BN actually lost more votes, when they lost the popular vote and when the BN lost even more Parliamentary seats, the ONLY consolation for the BN was that the Indian vote had swung back to the BN.  Here are the numbers. For GE13 in 2013 :
Total Indian votes in GE13  - 859,993 votes.
Indian votes for BN – 425,165 (49.44%)
India votes for the Pakatan Rakyat  – 434,828 (50.56%)

Note carefully :
In GE12 the Indian vote for the BN was 189,000 (Hindraf anti BN)
In GE13 the Indian vote for the BN was 425,000 (Hindraf pro BN)

Hindraf had made the Indian vote increase by 2.24 TIMES from GE12 to GE13. And this was at a time when the BN lost the popular vote, lost more seats in Parliament and almost lost the GE13. 

AND THE MIC WAS ONLY ABLE TO WIN FOUR PARLIAMENTARY SEATS !!!

Clearly Hindraf's campaigning and the Indian vote had helped to save the BN's backside.

And now for the GE14 the HINDRAF, along with PPBM  is very active in the States and 'luar bandar' areas.

The Hindraf has launched their 'Zero Votes For BN' campaign (“Undi Sifar Untuk BN”) which is gaining traction in the rural areas, especially among the Indians. Hindraf is also working on the ground with PPBM, Amanah, PKR and the DAP.  

Hindraf launched the "Zero Votes for BN" campaign in Seremban recently which saw a good Indian turnout in excess of 3,500 people.  (This is a huge number for Indians). Also in attendance was DAP's P Ramasamy, Deputy Chief Minister of Penang.

Hindraf is also cooperating closely with PPBM which will be contesting many of those marginal UMNO/BN seats in the rural or "luar bandar" areas in Johor, Kedah, Perak and other such seats. 

The Gabungan between the Hindraf and the PPBM can and will break the UMNO/BN hold in those marginal seats. - ostb

Dr.M : Aneh Parlimen bersidang 
sampai 6 penggal...

Pengerusi Pakatan Harapan, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad menyifatkan Parlimen yang akan bersidang buat kali keenam bermula 5 Mac hingga 5 April nanti sebagai aneh.

Ini kerana menurut beliau Parlimen kebiasaannya bersidang hanya selama lima penggal.

“Biasanya diadakan lima kali sesi parlimen. Tetapi kali ini kita akan ada enam kali.

“Ini juga kita nak tahu dari segi undang-undang (sama ada dibenarkan atau tidak),” ujarnya dalam sidang media di Ibu Pejabat PPBM di Petaling Jaya, hari ini.

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak dijangka membubarkan Parlimen dan mengadakan pilihan raya selepas persidangan penggal keenam tamat.

Antara agenda utama persidangan tersebut adalah mengenai persempadan semula yang didakwa ramai pihak dibuat untuk memberi kemenangan selesa kepada Najib dan UMNO. – Roketkini.com


Silap mata tanah Felda 
kejap hilang,kejap dapat balik...

Apakah penyelesaian skandal “kehilangan” hak milik tanah Felda di Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur, semudah itu? Adakah kes itu dikira selesai semata-mata hanya kerana hak milik ke atas 16 lot tanah yang dikatakan hilang itu sudah dipulangkan?

Kalau itulah caranya, nampak sangat bahawa ada silap mata dalam “kehilangan” dan “perolehan balik” tanah bernilai tinggi itu. Hanya orang betul bendul dan tidak tahu apa-apa sahaja akan percaya penyelesaian ajaib ala wayang kulit itu.

Jadi elok sangatlah audit forensik dan siasatan polis ke atas bagaimana sebuah syarikat persendirian berjaya mengambil alih pemilikan tanah itu diteruskan seperti yang dikatakan oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Abdul Razak.

Dalam satu pesanan “Tweet” hari ini yang dilaporkan oleh New Straits Times atas talian, Najib berkata dia bersyukur 16 lot tanah itu dipulangkan tanpa sebarang kos. Inilah yang menakjubkan. Bagaimanakah tanah yang dianggarkan bernilai RM270 juta, dengan nilai terbangun kasar (gross development value) melebihi RM1 billion, boleh dipulangkan tanpa kos?

Kalau pemindahan hak milik tanah itu dilakukan dengan telus mengikut undang-undang, tentulah ada perjanjian dan pembayaran. Bila ada perjanjian dan pembayaran, maka pemindahan balik hak milik kepada Felda pun mesti ada perjanjian dan pembayaran.

Tetapi macam Najib sendiri akui, pemulangan hak milik tanah itu kepada Felda tidak melibatkan sebarang bayaran atau kos? Jadi apakah jenis urusan jual-beli yang menyebabkan tanah itu terlepas daripada tangan Felda dan kemudiannya dimajukan menjadi Kuala Lumpur Vertical City?

Apakah sebenarnya syarikat Synergy Promenade Sdn Bhd yang memulangkan 16 lot tanah itu kepada Felda dan siapakah di belakangnya? Apa kita ketahui daripada laporan media ialah ia diwakili oleh seorang ahli lembaga pengarahnya bernama (Datuk) Marina Hashim.

Carian Internet mendapati Synergy Promenade ini adalah syarikat kontraktor dan peniagaan umum yang ditubuhkan pada tahun 2000. Kalau Marina Hashim (pix,bawah) itu sama dengan wanita yang dipersembahkan oleh majalah Nona pada 18 September tahun lalu, maka dia adalah seorang jelitawan dan ibu dalam usia 40-an.



Dalam laporan itu, majalah tersebut memetik salah seorang anaknya, Muhammad Nuraiman Rayyan Erwazri, sebagai berkata ibunya “bekerjasama rapat dengan pengurusan Lembaga Kemajuan Tanah Persekutuan (Felda).” Sesiapa yang berminat boleh baca DI SINI.

Jadi audit forensik dan penyiasatan polis yang Najib sebutkan itu perlulah memastikan apakah bentuk kerjasama rapat di antara wanita itu dengan pengurusan Felda.

Memandangkan banyaknya kejadian berbentuk skandal dan rasuah yang berlaku dalam Felda dan Felda Global Ventures (FGV) yang kesemuanya mengancam kepentingan peneroka Felda serta generasi kedua Felda, maka wajiblah skandal tanah Jalan Semarak ini disiasat hingga ke akar umbi.

Manalah tahu mungkin benar-benar wujud apa yang dipanggil “FGVMafia” dalam FGV dan Felda yang menjadi dalang menghisap darah peneroka.- A Kadir Jasin

Saving The Best For Last...

Like everyone else I looked forward to some welcoming news ahead of 2018, as I am a true believer that good things only happen at the end of the show. But it was one disappointment after another as 2017 came to a close. Topping my list of disappointments was the unravelling of the scandal behind Felda’s Jalan Semerak land deal. It was clearly a fraud committed by those responsible for the wellbeing of the many settlers of the once-promising land development scheme. Today Felda (Federal Land Development Authority) is fast becoming a farce with billions of the rakyat’s hard-earned money being siphoned off by crooked officials and politicians.

The scandal involves the transfer of four pieces of prime land belonging to the agency, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, by the appointed developer to an entity which the developer has an interest in. The current market value of the land is in excess of RM2 billion. However, it was “sold” for RM270 million, a fraction of what it is on the market. Felda, unfortunately, did not receive a single sen from the transaction although it was finalised in December 2015.        



Incidentally, scandal-ridden Felda is embroiled in many other financial fiascos that have surfaced over the last few years. What many find puzzling is the silence on the part of the Prime Minister’s Department who is responsible for the agency’s management. Was there complicity or perhaps a hidden hand behind the numerous “dubious dealings” that had incurred considerable loss to the government and the settlers? Obviously, those entrusted to manage and administer the agency are not what they are but wolves in sheep’s clothing. To pacify the settlers they, from time to time, are given handouts worth pittance in exchange for their loyalty, patience and trust. This sucks.

Newly-appointed Felda chairman, Sharir Samad, is at a loss trying to untangle the mystery. Although the Police and the anti-corruption commission are hard on the heels of the culprits, a solution is impossible with the present hierarchy. Meanwhile, the crooks are spending their ill-gotten gains without an iota of guilt. The country’s pride and credibility are being badly affected by these irresponsible people.



I thought Felda’s problem would be the finale of a tumultuous 2017 only to be jolted by another shocker nearer home. The notice on the door of Ipoh City Council’s Perak Tourism Information Centre adjacent to iconic Ipoh Padang had many in stitches. The centre was closed on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day. Its closure on a significant public holiday was not the issue here but the hastily written notice in English was. The Menteri Besar had attributed the blooper to oversight and had faulted the writer for having used the popular online application Google Translate to create his “masterpiece”. The notice was full of grammatical and spelling mistakes. It would make any sane visitor to the centre that day squeamish.

In 2012 when the first Visit Perak Year was introduced I dropped by the centre to have a first-hand look at things on display there. I was told that captions of posters and written illustrations were poorly worded. This would reflect badly on Ipoh City Council. I offered to correct the mistakes, pro bono, thus saving the Council money and time. My well-meaning gesture was never taken seriously, as those responsible persisted in doing what they felt was right. So whatever happened came as no surprise to me. But the fact that the glitch had gone viral on social media had everyone, from mayor to Menteri Besar, on their toes, speaks volumes of the importance of the English language.



If we want foreign tourists to continue coming Ipoh’s way, good spoken and written English is a must. In this instance, the fault lies with the department head not the poor counter staff who took it upon himself to write something which he is ill-trained for.

However, on hindsight, the capacity of senior government officers is also suspect. How many of them can write and converse in English? I have come across many who simply cannot string a simple sentence in English let alone write anything legible. Our education system has degenerated to what it is today thanks to the many nationalistic leaders who insist that English is the language of the penjajah (colonials). 



Notwithstanding the gloom, there was one event that helped brighten the tail end of 2017. It happened at Ipoh’s airport on Thursday, December 28. A young man went out of his way to win the hands of his beau. His elaborate marriage proposal plan cost him a whopping RM10,000 to execute but it was worth every sen. He got the girl of his dreams and the couple walked happily into the aircraft that took them to Singapore and back.

So, what is in stock for us in 2018? There are five official long weekends (one has already gone) and 11 public holidays to contend with. The icing is of course the much-anticipated GE 14. No definite dates are in the offing yet but, rest assured, the mother of all elections is set to rock the nation to its foundation. I am not making any predictions but remain optimistic of an upset given the current political climate. - Fathol Zaman Bukhari,Ipoh Echo
