IS THERE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KG BUAH PALA RESIDENTS & FELDA/FELCRA SETTLERS IN PAKATAN RAKYAT STATES?
I refer to the inaction of the DAP Penang government to prevent the demolishment of the houses and ranches at Kampung Buah Pala yesterday.
1. Last week on 21 April 2010, it was announced by the PAS Kedah state government that settlers of seven Felda schemes and nine Felcra schemes in Kedah who have worked their land for more than 20 years will be given titles soon.
2. Whatever the intentions of the Kedah PAS state government in giving out the land titles may be, I believe any move that may benefit Malaysians must be supported.
3. As Penang is also part of the states controlled by Pakatan Rakyat, there should be uniform policies to be adhered by the administration of ALL Pakatan Rakyat states.
4. The examples set out by Kedah PAS state government should be followed by Penang DAP state government in assisting all Malaysians in the state.
5. As such, the Penang DAP state government should grant appropriate assistance to the resident of Kampung Buah Pala.
6. There is no difference between Felda or Felcra settlers in Kedah with the settlers at Kampung Buah Pala in Penang.
7. The failure of Penang DAP state government to grant appropriate assistance to the Kampung Buah Pala settlers would show the continued inconsistent policies in ALL Pakatan Rakyat states.

I refer to Zaid Ibrahim’s statement today that he intends to launch his campaign “Get to know your leaders” and expose the alleged hypocrisy in Barisan Nasional leaders and ministers.
It is unfortunate that Zaid Ibrahim would resort to such action after the loss of the election at Hulu Selangor parliamentary seat. It would be better if he would spend his time to serve Malaysians at the Hulu Selangor constituency more constructively and get to know them matter.
On fair principles, Zaid Ibrahim must name and provide evidence of his allegation of hypocrisy in Barisan Nasional leaders and ministers without any delay.
His proposed campaign would unfairly smear the names of all Barisan Nasional leaders and ministers indefinitely. To this date, there is no concrete evidence provided by him on all his allegations hurled at Barisan Nasional leaders and ministers.
As such, I would pose a challenge to Zaid Ibrahim to provide the name and evidence of the allegation of hypocrisy against Barisan Nasional leaders and minister within seven (7) days from today.
The seven (7) days are meant to give Zaid Ibrahim a benefit of doubt.
Failing to do so, it is only fair for Malaysian to assume that the allegation by Zaid Ibrahim is unfounded and risk PKR’s credibility.
This would then mark the repeated trend of PKR leaders’ making unfounded allegations and statements, including Anwar Ibrahim’s previous takeover plan of Parliament in 16 September, 2008.
Such political tactics are unhealthy for our country’s development.

Yang Berhormat LIM KIT SIANG,
(via Email: email@example.com)
Date: 2nd April, 2010
c.c Media Representatives
Dear Yang Berhormat,
OPEN QUESTION TO PAKATAN RAKYAT LEADERS ON
“MALAYSIAN FIRST OR MALAY FIRST”
1. I refer to the question and challenge posed by Yang Berhormat to our Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, whether he is a Malay or Malaysian first. It was also reported in the media that Yang Berhormat suggested that our Deputy Prime Minister should step down if he considers himself as a Malay first rather than a Malaysian.
2. It would be important to see whether Yang Berhormat would act fairly in the interest of all Malaysians to pose the same question to the heads of your respective partners in PKR and PAS, being Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim and YB Dato Seri Hadi Awang, whether they are Malay or Malaysian first.
3. The same question should also be posed to all “Malay” Menteri Besar of all states under the administration of Pakatan Rakyat (i.e. Kedah, Kelantan & Selangor), whether they are Malay or Malaysian first.
4. I believe that the Chief Minister of Penang, Yang Berhormat Lim Guan Eng would certainly able to proclaim himself as a Malaysian first and not his Chinese origin race, based on DAP’s idealogy.
5. In the event you are unable to obtain a public confirmation from the heads of your respective partners in PKR and PAS as well as from the “Malay” Menteri Besar of all states under the administration of Pakatan Rakyat that they are Malaysian first and not Malay first, then it would be fair to imply the rejection of DAP’s Middle Malaysia concept by Pakatan Rakyat.
6. In such situation, Yang Berhormat should also request these Menteri Besar to step down if they do not consider themselves as Malaysian first.
7. There should not be any double standard in the aims of DAP to promote the principles of Malaysian first.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.

I refer to the question and challenge posed by YB Lim Kit Siang to our deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, whether he is a Malay or Malaysian first. It was also reported that YB Lim Kit Siang also suggested our deputy Prime Minister to step down if he considers himself as a Malay first rather than a Malaysian.
It was unfortunate and disappointing to read the reported reply by our Deputy Prime Minister that he considers himself a Malay first, a Malaysian as second. The appointment of the Deputy Prime Minister is to represent all Malaysians and not to prioritize any single race.
However, it would also be important to see whether YB Lim Kit Siang would be a fair politician to pose the same question to the heads of his respective partners in PKR and PAS, being YB Anwar Ibrahim and YB Hadi Awang, whether they are Malaysian first and Malay second.
YB Lim Kit Siang has failed to acknowledge the reality of DAP’s partnership with PAS and PKR.
To date, neither PKR or PAS has pledged their support for DAP’s Middle Malaysia concept. PAS has not openly pledge to discontinue their objective to create Islamic state and implementation of Hudud law.
In fact, ALL Pakatan Rakyat states are not implementing all of DAP’s Middle Malaysia concept.
DAP’s Middle Malaysia concept are now mere rhetoric policies for DAP’s own members’ consumption.
The failure of YB Lim Kit Siang to obtain a public confirmation from the heads of his respective partners in PKR and PAS that they are Malaysian first and Malay second would be an implied rejection of DAP’s Middle Malaysia concept by Pakatan Rakyat.
p/s: The logo above will be straighten only when DAP's Middle Malaysia is adopted by Pakatan Rakyat in ALL Pakatan Rakyat states!
