Survey Shows Malaysians Happy With Present Govt Administration - PM. Is This Claim True?
"If that is what the survey shows, then I am happy. We will continue to administer the country like we are doing now. If someone wants to criticise, then it is fine as long as it is constructive criticism and we will try to do whatever possible to overcome the problems we face.
"The important thing is that we will do everything possible to ensure success of the national vision to uplift all Malaysians. To those who supported the current government, I wish to say thank you.
"To those who criticise, I would also say thank you but please ensure the criticisms are fair and not overboard, do not make your own conclusions without knowing the truth," he told Malaysian journalists at the end of his two-day visit to Egypt.
Abdullah, who turns 68 today, when asked what was his birthday wish, he said: "I just want to stay healthy and be happy".
To a question on the Opposition's ploy to feed false information to Malaysian students in local and foreign universities, the Prime Minister said the Opposition would do that to whoever listens to them. "The important thing is that we should be ever vigilant and disseminate the correct information. Our students at universities can think and can evaluate what is good for them now and in the future.
"We care for our students...we want them to be successful, get good grades, get good jobs and help in nation-building. We don't get involved in provoking them, feeding them with wrong information. We are always positive," he added. (Bernama)
***** Sometimes I do wonder if the PM is fully informed about what is actually happening in the country. At a time when our national unity is at its worst in five decades, he seems to be happy! By the way who are the people behind this 'coalition of organisations' which gave our government the semuanya ok findings? What axes have they to grind? Many, I'm sure.
While I applaud him for his determination to ensure the success of the so-called 'national vision to uplift all Malaysians', unfortunately what we have seen thus far is plain empty talk and the poor are becoming poorer and the marginalised are being pushed further back and relegated more to the periphery. The Hindraf rally was but just one example of the deep dissatisfaction among Malaysian citizens.
Right now the disillusionment of the average Joe with the present government is patent. While Pak Lah has allowed more freedom of expression when compared to his predecessor, it does not compensate for the misdeeds being committed on a daily basis by his colleagues in government, especially those from Umno.
Much had been expected by the public from Pak Lah's administration, especially by the long suffering victims of the Never Ending Policy. Unfortunately things have gone from bad to worse under his watch. The increasing 'arabisation' of the country is also another point of contention and indeed very worrying for many. These are but a few instances from the litany of complaints against this government. When will the PM wake up from his reverie?
