Under attack What..? This Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/90484
from the Federal Capital Kuala Lumpur headlines two Molotov cocktails were thrown into the family home of Seputeh member of parliament Teresa Kok
. Yesterday the focus was on UMNO’s transition of power and subsequently the “Special Supreme Council” meeting. For better or for worse the country held its breadth and it turn out to be just the postponement of the UMNO AGM. Today the attention focusses back to Teresa who had the whole nation in suspense as she was taken in under the ISA. Seems it has been solved but her VOCAL
strains must have upset not just a few.
Bugi Wijaya in Sabah things has been equally interesting. The sms that flew around in Sarawak had a “Gravitational Pull” and it has made its presence felt in Sabah too. Arrangements are also being made to flock to Kuala Lumpur for visitations and also to make their way in numbers to the Parliament on October 13th. Another “SOAP OPERA..?” one LDP member asked. Seems that Pakatan have enough members to wrestle the Federal Government as they are flying them all in to K.L to visit the PM in Waiting. Everyone will expect Anwar to do a coup d’etat on 13/10 and thats why all the arrangements are being done says a PBS Youth exco who requests anonymity.
Meanwhile SAPP internal readjustments are picking up momentum. It seems that the official media news has been playing the story of an internal crisis resulting from the withdrawal from BN, but this is far from the truth.It seems that the gang of three (Hakiman who I met in Telipok said ‘kenapa selalu nya mesti tiga orang?) comprising of ‘self-proclaimed out of SAPP but yet to submit his resignation letter’ Raymond Tan,
ex-vice president Jimmy Wong Chee Kiong and ex-youth chief Au Kam Wah has not made any serious impact to SAPP.
Credit must be given to all of them for resigning from their government post except for Jimmy Wong who did not resign from his post as political secretary to the chief minister.One would expect when a former founder member/deputy president Datuk Tham Nyip Shyen combined with the three ‘heavyweight’ quit the party there would be a mass exodus. Until today, there was none.
Ironically, when former LDP Vice President Datuk Liew Yun Fah was drop as a candidate in the last election, there was a crowd of more than 2,000 to welcome him compare to a crowd of a mere 200 welcoming Datuk Raymond Tan at the Sandakan airport.A quick survey done on the ground shows that SAPP are gaining support. This is especially felt in the kadazandusun area.
A strong PBS grassroot supporter who declined to be named said,”SAPP did the right thing for the rakyat. Without them fighting KL would not even hear us or acede to our request. I just wish our leaders would have the courage to act like Datuk Yong Teck Lee.”
A youth leader of UPKO confessed that members at the grassroot are getting impatient with their party stand. This has made the option of throwing their support behind PKR or SAPP getting attractive b the days.On UPKO, as if reading the feelings from the ground,deputy president Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Bumburing has said that UPKO would review its position in BN due the incident of illegals gaining citizenship while local loses theirs.This is in response to Resource Development and Information Technology Assistant Minister, Donald Peter Mojuntin highlighting the case of 78-year-old Sino-Kadazan Yong Lee Hua @ Piang Lin.
Yong holding a Bumiputra Native Certificate has seen her status as full-fledged Malaysian being reduced to that of a Permanent Resident by the National Registration Department (NRD), and with the latter showing no remorse or urgency in reverting to her original status. This happen when she went to make a new identity card after hers was lost.Donald in sharing her fears saying her children’s citizenship could also be withdrawn.There has never been a case like this before when genuine Malaysians had their citizenship cancelled. If this can happen to her,it can happen to anybody(Malaysians),” he said.
Is this the start of a move by UPKO to also withdraw from BN? Whatever it is, people and even existing leaders of BN in Sabah and Sarawak are reaping what SAPP has sown over these few short months. If previously the Federal Government could take a laid back attitude towards these two founding partners of Malaysia, today the situation is different.
What ever you ask, most likely you will get. This is generally what all the small time hawkers are saying. So whatever the reasons one has to thank SAPP for being BRAVE or rather FOOLISH. They have tilted the balance somewhat and BN will be on their toes. The Rakyat will not just sit back and accept whatever comes their way but they will make noises and their voices will be heard LOUD and CLEAR………….The DRUM ROLLS from Sarawak and Sabah are for real…”13/10 NEW GOVERNMENT…???
