Najib on track to achieve Vision 2020, says Dr M

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is on track in bringing Malaysia to achieve Vision 2020, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
"He (Najib) is trying. I cannot say he is able to (bring the nation) achieve Vision 2020 but lots of people said Malaysia is already a developed country," he said.
However, Dr Mahathir said Najib was having a "hard time" following the smaller majority in Parliament and was dealing with crises.
"He doesn't have the majority that I had. I had (bigger) majority that I was able to handle a lot of opposition.
"So, he has a hard time," he told reporters after hosting a luncheon for delegates attending the International Forum on 'Politics of Economic and Social Transformation in the Era of Global Crisis.'
Earlier, when opening the forum, Najib said: "I told Dr Mahathir, 'You did the easy part, you did the 'what' part, but I have to do the 'how' part."
On Umno, Dr Mahathir said the party was progressing and "it is better than in 2008".
"In 2008, I know lots of Umno members voted for the opposition, not because they are 'less Umno' but they did not like the leadership at that time," he said. BERNAMA

tunku : najib is doing his best for the party and most important is doing his best for the nation and its people.so malaysian from all walk of life should support him and make sure this country won't get in the hand of the evils from the pakatan. if Dr M is confident in Najib, that is a good sign for all of us.Najib is doing well in the hard time and that is a very big credit to him.

Azmin: PKR will break down jail walls to keep Anwar free

JOHOR BARU: PKR will do anything, even break down the prison walls, to ensure that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim be the next prime minister, said PKR deputy president Azmin Ali.
"This is a strong reminder to Umno that we, the Youth and Wanita, pledge to rise and break down the prison walls to free him.
"Pakatan (Rakyat) leaders are together that Anwar should be the next prime minister," Azmin said when opening the PKR Wanita and Youth congress here.
"We will bring down any conspirancy to put him behind bars," he said.
Azmin said PKR hoped to make inroads into Johor to ensure that the state was no longer Umno's 'fixed deposit'.
To achieve this, he said, PKR would avoid three-cornered fights involving its Pakatan Rakyat partners.

tunku : this is what you called a gangster party. malaysia does not need gangsters to rule the country.by the way,azmin is admitting that anwar is guilty as they had accepted that he will be going to jail soon.again, malaysia does not need a sodomizer to be the prime minister.pity pakatan, they dont have any capable leader to be a pm candidate as they can only look at a prisoner to be their leader.

No directive to serve only halal food in Chinese and Tamil schools

KUALA LUMPUR: There is no directive from the Education Ministry that only halal food be sold at all Chinese and Tamil primary schools, said its Deputy Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.
He said while under the ministry's guidelines, canteen operators must provide halal food if there was a sufficient number of Muslim students in the school concerned, Chinese and Tamil school canteen operators could also offer non-halal food to their non-Muslim students.
"However, in practice, school canteen operators usually offer pork-free food," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby Wednesday.
Dr Wee was responding to a vernacular news report stating that a circular was recently issued by the Negri Sembilan Education Department to schools in the state that only halal food be sold by canteen operators.
Based on initial feedback, he said Negri Sembilan's Education Director had confirmed that no such directive had been issued.

tunku : there should be a directive that only halal food in all schools in malaysia. there are also muslims in chinese schools or some in tamil school.

DAP and PAS continue to squabble over hudud

GEORGE TOWN: DAP has maintained that there is no consensus among Pakatan Rakyat members on the implementation of hudud law in the country despite PAS' push for the policy.

Its chairman Karpal Singh said that implementing hudud law would be problematic besides posing a dangerous threat to the country.

“This is totally not workable as Malaysia is a secular state as set out under the Federal Constitution,” said Karpal, who is also Bukit Gelugor MP, at a press conference in Air Itam here yesterday.

He said both DAP and PKR had taken a firm stand against hudud law in Malaysia.

Karpal was commenting on a statement by Kedah Islamic Religious, Education and Cooperative Committee chairman Datuk Mohamed Taulan Mat Rasul during a state assembly meeting that it would implement hudud law after Kelantan.

On Kedah MCA chairman Datuk Chong Itt Chew's criticisms against DAP and PKR for keeping silent over the issue, he said MCA should not criticise DAP because its stand had been clear all the time.

Chong had said that as both DAP and PKR had campaigned for PAS, they would indirectly contribute towards the removal of non-Muslims' rights and opportunities under hudud law.

He claimed that although the Syariah Criminal Enactment, which had been passed in Kelantan, was yet to be officially adopted in Kedah, there was already some semblance of an ultra-conservative ideology enforced by local authorities.

Chong had also questioned why Kedah was copying Kelantan, which already earned brickbats from the public over its policy.

At a separate press conference in Tanjung Bungah yesterday, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the implementation of hudud law was not a consensus among Pakatan's parties.

“Different parties may have different stands but hudud law is definitely not Pakatan Rakyat's common policy,” said Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general.

tunku : the melodrama keeps playing it's play again and again. everyone is trying to fool the people. the people should not trust these jokers.

Muhyiddin Questions Need For Third Link To Penang Island Now

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 16 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin questioned the rationale for the proposal to build a third link in the form of an sea tunnel between the mainland and Penang island when the second bridge project has yet to be completed.
"What's the purpose of (Chief Minister Lim) Guan Eng building the tunnel? Is he implying that the traffic congestion is so bad that the second bridge now under construction cannot solve the congestion in George Town.
"Rightly, we should let the second bridge project to be completed. Perhaps the second bridge will be enough to handle the congestion. So, what's the point of spending so much money, said to be around RM8 billion, for the tunnel," he told a news conference after a meeting with Federal Territory youths in conjunction with his day-long walkabout in Kuala Lumpur today.
Muhyiddin said the second bridge project, expected to be completed in 2013, had taken into account the projection of use for the long term.
"Only years after the first bridge was built has the federal government decided to build the second. Now, the second bridge has yet to be completed and its projected use is for 10 to 20 years to come.
On Monday, the Penang government reportedly announced an RM8-billion plan to construct four major road and tunnel projects to reduce traffic congestion in the state.
Chief Minister Lim was quoted as saying that the projects will allow greater access between the island and the mainland.
The proposed projects are a third (tunnel) link connecting Gurney Drive to Seberang Perai North District, a by-pass connecting Gurney Drive to the Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Expressway, a link between Bandar Baru Air Itam to the same expressway, as well as a paired road to the existing coastal road from Tanjung Bungah to Teluk Bahang.

tunku : these are the people ( the oppositions) who had opposed to the construction of the first bridge. they said government is wasting money etc. now suddenly they want to build a tunnel, why? it is just to fish for votes and empty promises because general election is around the corner. lim guan eng is the biggest liar in dap's camp.

Malays Will Become A Minority If They Are Divided, Says Mahathir

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 10 (Bernama) -- The Malays will become a minority group who are incapable of championing their rights if they continue to be divided, said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
He said the Malays were now divided into three factions and that only through unity could they become an effective majority group to protect their interest.
"Previously, the Malays were united into one party to the extent that they succeeded in opposing (the proposed establishment of) the Malayan Union," he said when responding to a question from a participant at the premier lecture by him, entitled "The Development of the Civilisation and Culture of the Malaysian Community Towards the Formation of a Progressive Nation", here today.
Dr Mahathir, 85, said the voice of the Malays would be drowned if they were divided into several minority groups and needed the support of other groups to achieve the objectives of their struggles to preserve their own race.
Regarding the group who championed the individual's fundamental rights, the fourth Malaysian prime minister said the original democratic principle that emphasised on the rights of the majority had now turned to the aspects of the individual's fundamental rights.
He said if the freedom of the individuals was allowed without any restriction, this would create tension in the community.
Dr Mahathir said demonstrations were allowed in a democracy but if they were carried out on a large scale without restriction, this could bring about negative results such as jeopardising business activities.
He said it was also important to develop positive personal values from the young age so that this would continue to be upheld by the people as they grew older.

tunku : to me malays today are the minority in their own land. they are divided in 3 groups generally.each group will be a minority group with less say.the malays should realize this before it's too late.there is still time to reconcile.do not be fools.
