UMNO bukan lagi pilihan anak muda


This is the cry of a young UMNO activist in Penang over the summary and ignomious removal of Mukhriz Mahathir as Kedah Mentri Besar:

“Selepas TSMY dan DS Shafie Apdal, Kini giliran Mukriz pulak.

Sibodoh yang tak faham politik pun bijak menilai kenapa.

Benar bahawa pemimpin datang silih berganti.

Kepentingan parti perlu diutamakan.

Tetapi atas kesalahan apakah Mukhriz Mahathir perlu dihukum sebegini rupa?

Hanya kerana Mukhriz Mahathir lantang bersuara?

Pemimpin kami diatas dah kurang mendengar.

Di pekakkan telinga, dibutakan mata dan masih dalam sindrom penafian.

‘Menjaga’ pemimpin Bahagian dengan beri habuan semata-mata untuk mengekalkan kuasa.

Kami bukan pekak.

Juga bukan tuli yang hanya terima segala perbuatan kepimpinan atasan.

Kami lihat, kami dengar, kami baca, kami berbual, kami rasa dan kami cari jawapan.

Tetapi kami tahu, suara kami tidak akan kemana.

Tidak akan didengar.

Apabila Mukhriz letak jawatan, bukan sahaja rakyat Kedah merasa kesannya.

Kami di Pulau Pinang juga terkena tempiasnya.

Maka, telah tanam hasrat sejak dari awal lagi, jika Mukhriz turun dari jawatan MB Kedah, UMNO bukan lagi pilihan kami.

Kami terpaksa.

Kerana kami kesal..

Bukan UMNO ini yang kami mahukan…”

I believe this is not only the cry of an UMNO youth activist in Penang, but represents the cry of the young generation of Malaysians, whether in UMNO or outside, whether in Penang or in the rest of Malaysia.

The question not only UMNO youths, but all Malaysian youngsters, are seeking has not been answered by the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who made his first official visit to Kedah yesterday.

What the youths of Malaysia want is not the Prime Minister’s on-the-spot RM15 million approval of a project requested by the new Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Bashah Md Hanapiah when launching the Sungai Petani Urban Transformation Centre, but his full and satisfactory accountability in the world-class twin mega scandals – RM2.6 billion “donation” and RM55 billion 1MDB – which have brought such shame and humiliation to Malaysia’s international image as well as damage to national and international confidence about the future of Malaysia.

When will Najib give full and satisfactory accountability for his role in the twin mega scandals and not hide behind the exoneration of his Attorney-General, Tan Sri Mohamad Apandi Ali, who is going down in Malaysian annals as the Attorney-General with least credibility, trust and public confidence in the nation’s history.

Is Najib prepared to convene a Special Parliament in February to clear himself of any impropriety, abuse of power or malpractices in the twin mega scandals or is he prepared finally to agree to the establishment of a Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into the twin mega scandals, with the RCI membership arrived at by consensus by Parliament and the civil society?
