UMNO leaders in Federal Government should not play with fire and mortgage credibility and success of 1Malaysia GTP Roadmap and Malaysia 2.0 new economic model

UMNO leaders in the Federal Government, from the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to Cabinet and sub-Cabinet levels should not play with fire and mortgage the credibility and success of the 1Malaysia Government Transformation Programme (GTP) Roadmap and Malaysia 2.0 new economic model yet to be announced by Najib.

They should be mindful that Malaysians and the world are watching whether they could separate their responsibilities as Federal Government officials from those of Umno leaders, which would have a great bearing on the credibility, trustworthiness and success of of Najib’s 1Malaysia GTP Roadmap and Malaysia 2.0 new economic model which is to be the basis for the Tenth Malaysia Plan to be presented to Parliament in June.

For instance, national and international credibility in the system of governance which plays a very important role in a country’s international competitiveness, would suffer grievously if Malaysians and the international community believe that the Najib premiership is unable to rise above narrow political party considerations to give top priority to national interests as to continue to compromise the independence, professionalism and integrity of national law enforcement agencies.

There is for instance growing national and international concern about double standards in government where irresponsible elements provoking sensitive racial and religious outbursts are given immunity and leeway if they are aimed at destabilizing Pakatan Rakyat state governments, even when these demonstrations are founded on baseless allegations or half-truths, like the outrage of the cowhead demonstration against the Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim in Selangor in August last year and the demonstration against the Penang Chief Minister, Lim Guan Eng last Friday.

Malaysians are witnessing a reversal of role of mainstream media (msm). Since more than a decade ago from the outset of the Anwar Ibrahim reformasi movement in 1998, mainstream media will play down the crowds at demonstrations by dividing them with a factor of 10. Now, we have mainstream media magnifying the crowd at anti-Pakatan Rakyat demonstrations by multiplying it by a factor of ten – which explains Bernama reporting a demonstration of 3,000 against the Penang Chief Minister last Friday.

The 1Malaysias GTP Roadmap makes many proposals about promoting “a truly 1Malaysia government” and an “all-inclusive 1Malaysia media” but they will have neither credibility nor public confidence if “a truly 1Malaysia government” and “an all-inclusive 1Malaysia media” fail the daily test of actual day-to-day governance in the eyes of Malaysians and the world.

    Serious matter, forget abt NEM n GTP, try 2 save true democracy n rule of law first

    2 expect change fr Umno B/BN is akin 2 bagai tikus baiki labu

    Malaysia 2.0 new economic model = NEP version 2
    = another 50 years of goodies for umnoputras
    = another 50 years of hell on earth for the pendatangs

    Looks like the NEP will only end in year 3030, when all the pendatangs have migrated

    Ku Li has said it all. UMNO is beyond redemption and it will not be able to restore democracy.

    This post brings up an interesting question. Would the ultras in UMNO rather destroy everything rather than hand the country over to someone else (i.e.,PR) to run?

    Its clear they rather hold everything and everyone back rather than give up their way..The issue is are they dumb enough to destroy everything rather than give it up. The church and mosque bombing, the protest shows they are willing to go very far. They still think they suceeded in fooling everyone with May 13, 1969 lies and people can be scared or tricked to succumb to them.

    I think its not impossible they will destroy much before they give up simply because they are out of control. They actually have never been much self-control in the first place. All it takes is some crazies to go out there and spend some money and a lot of people will get hurt and damage done.

    I insist that We have gone too far already. The damage to come is inevitable..

    Hey bigjoe,umnoputras,warlords and cronies are now enjoying mega huge luxury far far beyond their imagination,hence how on earth you expect these greedy guys to give up their life style. No matter what at all cost,whatever it takes,they would defend it.I think they would burn everything to the ground rather than giving it up for decent loving and caring malaysians. Sorry bigjoe,the damage is already done,and it’s up to us now to prevent further damages.

    GTP, KPI, NKRA – all these buzzwords have been converted to crap used by BN to stay in power. frankyapp is right in his above comment. The damage is already done, if we don’t prevent further damage now, we are finished.

    Malaysia is not a computer generated country in a computer generated reality like the ‘Matrix’. But then, followers & supporters of the old doctor must have been very much taken in by the old man’s recent statement which implies that the 9/11 terrorist attacks are like scenes from a film with computer generated special effects like ‘Avatar’…

    I think he needs to change the motherboard and quarantine all the viruses too. Not just reboot.

    Rebooting with an old CPU and virus laden OS is not going to help.

    You need to have intel-i7 core now.
