Letter to Editor
SINCE the collapse of the Barisan Nasional (BN) government of sixty years, the dynamics of politics have changed for the better and worst. We hear “moves” being mentioned, from the Sheraton Move to the Dubai and Chow Kit Moves.
Why should we have these “moves” to topple the existing government? It has become glaringly clear that there are groups of people who do not like the current government to continue providing growth and stability to Malaysians.
These individuals definitely have huge amounts of money to buy over our MPs who seem to be for sale to the highest bidder, though there are many among them who are real statesman who want to serve the rakyat.
Why are the ringleaders interested in changing the government is anybody’s guess. Is their intention only to save their skins from the onslaught of pending corruption charges, or do they feel and think that they are better politicians than those who are currently serving the government?
The past governments had only brought the country to the threshold of having RM1.5 trillion of debts, which also mean that every Malaysian and future Malaysians are debtors until these debts are paid off.
In term of various indices, national nor international, we are lacking behind many countries. Domestically, our racial and religious indices are not healthy. Malaysians are suffering with the rise in prices of goods and services. We are, in other words, suffering from an extreme “bread and butter” crisis.
Internationally, our corruption index and finances had also plummeted. What are the politicians trying to proof by making attempts to topple the current government?
No way did the past governments take Malaysia along healthy trajectories in terms of race and religious harmony, financial management of the country’s wealth or in any other dimensions.
Are they saying they will bring Malaysia back to the good old days or alleviate the country to a first-world country status? Malaysians have lost the respect for politicians though they may carry the title Yang Berhormat!
Please stop these antics! Malaysians want a stable government to move forward to bring peace, stability and growth for the future of our children, and let not our children curse at the current politicians for their abhorrent antics.
It is clear that those who want to topple government after government are doing so due to the fragility in term of the “numbers” of MPs and have pre-meditated agendas to achieve in order to protect themselves and their cronies.
No politicians or their ringleaders can guarantee that their actions are for the peace, security and wellbeing of Malaysia and Malaysians.
We are blessed with a constitutional monarch who steps in from time to time to direct the country’s affairs from intoxicated politicians who are greedy for power.
The Agong along with the Conference of Rulers play a vital role in being a check and balance to the volatile current political dynamic.
It is high time the past glory and power – which was removed by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s BN administration – be restored.
At the end of the day, the trajectories of the past as well as the actions and inactions since independence speak volumes of our out-of-control politicians who are for sale all the time and how they have put the country’s economic, social, racial and religious health at risk.
The antics of politicians are entertaining but in term of peace, unity, development and growth, there is no doubt that it is extremely destructive. – Jan 4, 2024
