BN Must Reform Says Najib. The Reality Is Najib & Umno Should Drastically Change
Barisan Nasional has to change to meet the aspirations of the people or be prepared for the people to change the coalition, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.***** It's easy for Najib to speak without showing any proof or intention of changing. He is an umnoputera first, second and last. The truth of the matter is that it's only Umno which has to make the biggest reforms as they have been the biggest culprit in ruining a peaceful country with their racist policies. The other component parties are merely appendages who've had absolutely no clout in the past. Their main fault and weakness was to kowtow to Umno day in and day out, a task which they did to perfection.
The March general election showed that the coalition must make reforms and implement policies to meet the expectations of the people, he said.
“It is a clear message that Barisan needs to be proactive to meet the people’s needs and reforms are already taking place as announced by the Prime Minister,” Najib told a Sabah Barisan Hari Raya gathering last night.
“We will continue to be sensitive and open to the needs of the people,” he said, adding that Barisan was still relevant and could deliver the change the people expected.
“If we don’t have the courage to change then people will change us,” he said.
Najib said that among steps needed to be taken were to ensure that the country’s wealth was distributed fairly to all regions and people and to plant seeds of a value system whereby all communities irrespective of religion would work together.
Taking Sabah as an example, he said that despite its multi-ethnic and multi-religious society, the people were relaxed and open to each other’s cultures.
“I feel that we will not have a problem and the proposed Race Relations Act is not necessary. What is needed is a value system and not a legal system,” he said.
It is however the average Malaysian who has forced people like Najib to at least talk about 'reform,' knowing full well that this time around there will be no easy path to victory for Umno if they plan to cling on to that catchphrase of the past, 'demi bangsa,agama dan negara'.
Not many would be convinced by Najib that Umno is capable of reform. It would be better if they just disappear from the scene once and for all. Then we can get down to governing our country properly and peacefully.
