After over a half century of independence, is this what the people can AND will expect from oppositions’ rule in 4 states? Will the historic May 13th, 1969 racial clashes repeat itself? Surely, the coalition’s project such as the NCER [Northern Region Economic Region] will be conducted by the coalition for the time being in three states until the next general election. But, PM Pak Lah says : I shall [NOT I will] soldier on with my move to promote Islam Hadhari to three states currently under the green-and-moon rule. Surely, the coalition can AND will wrest all 5 opposition-led states including its overdue battle for Kelantan in the next general elections. Next time [I DO mean election], don’t give oppositions a chance to (re)rule the states and the country. While PM’s call to vote for his coalition went unheeded, I’m sure that is about and is going to change sometime.
For instance, Kelantan, my birth state. Being born 10 years before the green-and-moon rule, it enjoyed tremendous development [I can’t recall what the developments in the state were] under coalition. But, with the opposition ruling the state for the fifth time in a row, do expect another indevelopment for this state. The would-be Kelantan MB under coalition, ex-TNB CEO, Datuk Awang Adek Hussin has lost his task of recapturing Kelantan from the opposition. If Kelantan were to be reruled by the coalition under him right now, Kelantan would have its projects such as 2nd bridge in Palekbang and the inland port in Kuala Krai resumed. For the time being, only 2 seats in the state were recaptured by the coalition. Tan Sri Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah or known by his pun Cool Lee was pronounced the MP for Gua Musang. Unlike its neighbouring state, Terengganu, which was brought back by coalition in two last elections [including this election], it enjoyed more development compared to Terengganu’s dark years under the opposition’s rule between 1999 and 2004. With the theme ‘Islam Hadhari, Terengganu Bestari’, it has created millions of job opportunites in the state without having to migrate elsewhere. I am sure that the same will go in Kelantan, Insya-Allah[God willing] if AND when the coalition is voted back into power in the state with the theme “Islam Hadhari, Kelantan Mithali”. Are Kelantanese singing to the same old tune? Do they NOT want to see their state [AND mine as well] progress for the next four years or so?
Finally, I would like to say that it is the people’s [voter’s] fault of voting against coalition’s leadership. Just because the opposition’s strongest attraction ever like a magnet in this year’s election to me doesn’t mean the central coalition government does not want to help the people. Like it or not, we have to accept the fact that parts of Malaysia are now opposition parties’ territory. But, be assured, the police will continue to monitor the peace and stability in 5 states from unwanted incidents. But the opposition will still make up stories on police’s integrity in their election campaign. We shall [NOT We will] wait and see if the situation improves after the next general election.
