DS Najib - Hopes & Aspirations - If there's any Part 1
Managing a beautiful nation like ours is not as easy as ABC, and DS Najib is certainly the man the nation and the world are focusing on with full watchfulness.
A leader cannot be called a leader by just being able to provide scholarships to the poor students or just by supplying electricity and water supply to the remote areas, the issue which is popular to the campaigners in any election.
We are still not considered to be leaders just by building infrastructures, first class motorways, high and impressive skyscrapers, high class Mariners, International Tournament standard Golf Courses, having lists of International Convention Centers and witnessing rows and lines of Rolls Royce and Daimlers running through our highways and city centers.
History has proven to us that many great governments and nations went into oblivion, like the Ottoman Empire and numerous other kingdoms and nations do not even inherit their remnants of their existence and we only find them in history books.
These are the points that many sons of the soil are worried as the conduct of leaders of today will determine the future fate of the nation and more so about our race.
Don’t take things for granted, as many races in history, has lost their existence because of poor leadership and spiky attitude and values of live.
The Red Indians is disposed as an ugly creature in cowboy films; exceedingly unintelligent, dim, obtuse and brainless being. They were the legitimate indigenous race of North America but because of their loose character of their leaders and the people made them look what they are today.
Being Malay I am personally worried, that my race will be in oblivion in this world like the Red Indians and the indigenous in Australia.
The race has come to a point where nobody recognizes and being looked as a parasite to the modern race and society of migrant in origin.
In United States the migrant are truly in power to the extent of controlling both the hemispheres politically and more so economically.
The trend seem so obviously looming and intimidating in our country and the indigenous Malay and Bumiputras, especially the leaders are becoming to be items of trade by businessmen and big taukehs and profiteeriees.
Once political leaders are in deep love with big businessmen nothing can go right anymore and we only have to wait for one thing, i.e. a total caving-in of our political and governing system.
From that very moment no leader big or small can ever make proper and fitting decision for the country anymore.
To my mind, UMNO which was formed to be a nationalist party has gone way ward as an exclusive party for the few so-called astute beneficiaries with massive number of membership. The millions of ordinary members are made-believed that they are up there for Malay struggles.
Whoever takes the mantle, he would first come out with imposing and inspiring slogans some which we can still remember; ‘Bersih, Cekap dan Amanah’, ‘Don’t work for me, just work with me’ and the newly talked about ‘1Malaysia’ which DS Najib professes.
In the end as I have said once, there were no Bersih, no Cekap and no Amanah. For the other slogan, people just couldn’t work with him as he didn’t have sufficient work to do.
The ordinary members are slowly beginning to believe that they are deceived by their leaders and no one should blame them as they are just as human as their leaders with differences in thinking and perceptions.
The difficulties DS Najib is going to face are not at all small with 1Malaysia slogan that he designed.
BN has not been careful enough to maintain the affable and splendid inter-racial interaction created by the New Economic Policy (NEP) as the leaders since 2 decades ago were more focused on physical development less other important ingredients of nation building with 1 ultimate that is National Unity.
The past 2 administrations have totally ignored this important issue that currently in place. We only start discussing about the issue when everything is already decrypted, and left with thin insulation to maintain racial harmony.
Rukun Negara for instance is history as no one talks about it anywhere anymore, but one must remember that is the best ever result of years of soul searching by our fore fathers we never care to give regards to.
I still say that the dismantling of NEP prematurely was the sure cause of what is happening today and we can’t listen to the persons who ignored this issue to do the corrective exercise if there is one.
We truly hope DS Najib would manage the nation by consultation and reduce intra-party move within UMNO as that would derail the effort to arrive at the point which we used to rejoice immensely.
DS Najib’s effort for amicable solutions is highly expected and he has to work double the effort than his effort to be the Prime Minister.
I shall continue this article, maybe late on the weekend.
