Do You Agree With This Najib Claim? - "Not The Practice In BN To Violate Laws!"

That is the incredulous headline in Bernama today!

There has been no directive nor is it the practice among Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties to violate the laws and what more to create disturbance, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said here Friday.

Najib who is also BN deputy chairman, said the coalition front had always reminded its members to respect the country's laws.

"Those who were involved in the scuffle recently had also stated that they were terribly provoked by the DAP supporters who insulted and hurt their feelings," he told reporters after launching the district-level Maulidur Rasul celebration and Tun Ghafar Felda scheme in Bukit Bulat, near here.

Najib was commenting on the police reports lodged by two Negeri Sembilan DAP members who alleged that they were attacked by a group of MIC members while leaving the Machap state seat by-election nomination centre at the Japerun complex in Bukit Bulat last Tuesday.

Technician K. Kannis, 42, and transport worker A. Vijayan, 24, were reported to have been slightly injured in the scuffle and were sent to the Alor Gajah Hospital for treatment.

A Malaysia Nanban reporter and Makal Osai photographer also made police reports on the incident. Police have arrested a 28-year-old man.

BN candidate Lai Meng Chong, 56, is facing DAP's Liou Chen Kuang, 33, in the April 12 by-election following the death of its assemblyman and state Housing, Local Government, Environment and Transport Committee chairman Datuk Wira Poh Ah Tiam on March 15.

"Since the incident has become a police case, let the police investigate," said Najib.

On the DAP's allegation that the BN candidate was abusing his power and misusing funds to campaign, Najib said the DAP had run out of issues to harp on. "They're groping hard for issues that they could even make such an accusation against our candidate," he added.

"As a candidate, he (Lai) has no power but when they (Machap Baru residents) have problems like they need housing meant for the poor, he would get the forms and submit them to the Chief Minister for consideration. This is not against the law."

The DAP had claimed that Lai had promised a state government allocation to rebuild five houses in the Machap Baru New Village.

Najib however dismissed it as a desperate tactic by the DAP.

****** PAS must definitely be thanking its lucky stars that it does not have any Indian members to turn an election campaign into a gangster brawl. As for the claim by our DPM that the BN has never encouraged the practice of breaking laws I leave it to you to decide. I suppose that when Umno Youth a few years ago disrupted a properly organized meeting, it doesn't count as showing disrespect for the law. Or for that matter when elements of Umno, along with PAS and others, hijacked a meeting on the discussion of Article 11. Any other examples you can think of are welcome to be noted here.

BN tries to cultivate the "respectable" outlook, being the ruling party. But make no mistake about it, UMNO, MCA and MIC all have their Gangster squads, which can be swung into action when necessary. We have just seen them in action in Machap.

BN doesn't violate laws?! He's lying through his teeth!

Wasn't there an article about some UMNO division that illegally occupied land to set up their office, and refused to move despite the local majlis perbandaran's repeated requests?

Awarding of the APs to friends & family? Using public lorries & facilities to campaign? Not arresting a SINGLE PERSON of the mob that broke up the Inter-faith discussion in Penang? All those violate lawa, DOH!!

hahaha...how true! Naj, u r damn right! for the benefit of those who still doubt, didn't u learn that all laws are made for non-UMNOputras, non-BNites only? Naj is telling the truth. So, BN can do whatever u think it's not right, why r u complaining? Didn't u give BN the fullest support? And Naj knows u r going to continue to support BN again and again, so what?

sounds like BN is sanctioning such thuggery behaviour. can provocation justify such kind of behaviour? if so, whats the law for? in the name of provocation, violent behaviour is sanctioned. that is from the DPM! goodness gracious, coming from someone who is the PM in waiting.

UMNO has this funny attitude towards the non-Malays. This was observed by a writer from the FEER magazine back in 1986 when the tussle for the UMNO presidency was heating up between Mahathir and Tengku Razaleigh - when you step on the foot of an UMNO malay, you are wrong; and when he steps on your foot, you are also wrong. And he is so right! Now you can understand why UMNO can do no wrong and the sooner the Machap people wake up, the better it is for them.

Will Najib explain that UMNO does not violate the law regarding the commisions paid for the submarine and fighter aircraft deals? Does he understand and know the meaning of "truth?"

I was told a joke that unscrupulous politicians (unfortunately majority in BN) are capable of "lying even during their sleep". Another joked that it is difficult to believe their spoken claims AND those unspoken ones too existing as thoughts in their self deceptive minds. Over the years, it has proven true. BN not the practice to violate laws....best joke. Look at all these BN politicians seemingly above the law. BN is not interested in justice. Are they? Look at the "MCA's "chair-throwing incident" and other UMNO crises. How many of these culprits were charged in court? In MCA's case, none, to date. The case just evaporated into thin air. These BN parties have "locked up" their party constitutions to mean their incumbent leadership's word is final...so no cases can ever land in court. You call this natural justice!! So why worry about violating Laws! They are the laws unto themselves.
