My friend of 20 years Jeguk, a Bidayuh who was once in the forefront of all DAP protests is today a successful businessman. He was very happy when he was alerted with news from Malaysiakini portal that Teresa Kok http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/90038 was released. He was exceptionally happy that all will be well soon as the country needs to be back on track and carry on with all the economic reforms and stability. He told the group of Dayak graduates who sat down having coffee and their ‘kolo mee” that we have to fight for our rights but we need it to do the right way by using the right platform.
Don’t just be in the forefront of shouting and hurling the party’s slogan,”DAP,DAP or PRS,PRS” referring to most of us who just join politics. Of course there must be soldiers and also some are lieutenants or Generals.
He showed this to us through his cell phone internet which opened up another avenue for politiking in which Teresa said,” (There is) no reason at all to put me under ISA… What have I done? What have I said?” she asked.” Well,this is exactly what I am driving home as when I was younger I thought by just joining a political party I can change peoples lives. No,no,no its education and gaining more knowledge and having a grip to understand the constitution and your rights which will make you politically matured.
So where is this getting to as our economy is facing inflation and like a doctor will say,”You’re not in the bests of health. I’m prescribing you some medicine” My point he said is that we are all involve in how the economy is heading. We just cannot blame the PM for our country falling in this “quagmire.” we have to blame the whole of Malaysian Parliamentarians.
That’s why Jeguk always profess that
- If we are teachers we must make sure that we teach our students to the best of our abilities to prepare them well to handle the future.
- If we are doctors we must prescribe the patients with the right medicines in order for them to be well and also man hours is not lost.
- If we are businessman we must ensure that what we do and how we earn are done in the bests interests of ourselves and the country.
- If we are politicians he said hmmm,hmmm i leave it to them now
I tell you one good advice is Do Business,Do Business and leave the politicians to portray their own parties and which I used to shout,”DAP,DAP” Today I thank DAP for being a good opposition in which I was part of it 20 years ago and without a good opposition there would not be a good government. For a Bidayuh( Sarawak ethnic origin) to say this it just shows how far Malaysia has progress politically. Teresa Kok’s release is a plus point for the country as it pushes herself forward.
Take Penang,Pakatan is government and BN has to be a good opposition. Jeguk says he would agree to PM Abdullah running the country and Anwar to be a good opposition leader. But at the moment the country is facing a rather unique position which was different 20 years ago. This statement he says from Malaysiakini says it all,” They said the public, already unhappy with the sinking economic conditions, was losing patience and it was now up to the two camps to put up or shut up.’ Do you agree that MALAYSIABOLEHLAND is heading towards that showdown………at the end of the day we all need to also,”CHO SENG LEE”-(Do business)
