With this week newspaper headlines debating hotly on Tun Mahathir outburst on the current reign of government under Pak Lah, I cannot help myself to view and to voice myself as a citizen of Malaysia. To a certain extent, I do agree with Tun Mahathir, we all do have the right to voice ourselves out. Not many people dare to do that as we might be caught and integorrated by the police under the ISA rules, in this case many people rather keep their mouth zip all the time but nevertheless in the coffee shop, cafe, kopitiam, this issues is freely debated during their quick breakfast time.
Current government, I cannot help but to critisize. Our living costs have increase in a rate where many working level people felt the pinch. 30cents price hike on petrol per litre and 15% increase on electricity tariff, nothing have been good since Pak Lah took over. Lots and lots of news or policies announced by the government left the public complaining of the ever increasing living costs. At least during Tun Mahathir reign as PM, we do have many many good news that made Malaysian proud to a certain extent. The KLCC, the Commonwealth Games, the KLIA airport, this are few landmarks which put Malaysia on the world map.
So many doubts and uncertainties are not answered by current government. There is this AP issue which cool off after the NAP was announced. And there is this investigation on the MRR2 bridge which also cool down and latest on the Matrade building which took extra cost to get it done. Have they ever think where all this money from? What is the reason we pay taxes? Why do we always saying discrimination remark about government servants? Government department who is offering public services for eg : passports, identity cards, etc, I believe out of 10 citizens, at least 8 citizens are experiencing bad services or rude replies. And yet all this people who is government servant continuously getting increment out of nothing? On what based is their increment on?
The government announces there will be no further increment on petrol for 2006, what if in 2007, they announce another 30cent increase, what should we do? With petrol price increases, living costs will increase. And half year already gone, I wonder what further bad news or policies the government will announce for the coming another 6 months before 2007.
I never have this bad negative feelings about the government during Tun M's time as PM but the current situation sometimes make me think of migrating or getting out of Malaysia sometimes. I am a Malaysian born Chinese and yet I do not enjoy privileges like my fellow MALAY-sians. Am I in the right country? How long more can we survive in this country which is going to bankruptcy?
I dontknow whether it is appropriate to condemn and critisize my government here or not. I take the risk, I do not mind. Just like our former PM, I just want to voice myself out. To the current BN lead government under Pak Lah, you guys sucks!!! Please improve.
Malaysia BOLEH? Talk only lar... DAMN!!!
