Doing "Congak" on Transformational Cabinet


A Kadir Jasin

[NO anonymous comments. Please use Google Account, OpenID or Name/URL. Pseudonym accepted. Thank you]

WHEN I came across a Star newspaper report of May 16 headlined “A well-balanced Cabinet of 32 ministers” my brain went into rewind mode, taking me back to my Malay school days in the 1950’s when “congak” and “ujian akal” were both loved and loathed by the pupils.

Congak” was mental arithmetic and a regular subject. We would be given, in quick succession, questions concerning addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We would have to answer them without the aid of any instrument – not even pencil. We had to do the calculation in our mind and answer verbally.

The “ujian akal” was a general knowledge test. We were asked on subjects that were not often taught in the classroom. Only if we did extra reading and observed everyday events would we be able to answer them.

Using the basic principle of “congak” and knowledge of general affairs, for which I did not fair badly, and applying them to The Star “well-balanced Cabinet” labelling, I came up with the following mathematics:

1. The Indians, who account for 7.1% of the population according to the 2010 Census, are represented by two Ministers. In addition they have four Deputy Ministers.

2. The Chinese, who account for 22.9% of the population, are, by choice and by their dismal contribution to the BN election victory in the May 5 polls, are not represented. There is, however a nominated Chinese in the transformational Cabinet.

3. There are 32 Cabinet Ministers and 24 Ministries, including the Prime Minister’s Department (PMD). In the PMD, there are eight Ministers. Deputy Ministers are not Cabinet members.

4. Sarawak with the population of 2,506,500, where the state BN won 25 out of 31 seats, was awarded six Cabinet posts, not counting Senator Idris Jala who is from the old Cabinet. It works out to one Minister for every 417,750 Sarawakians. Counting Deputy Ministers, the Bumi Kenyalang (Land of the Hornbills) has 10 federal posts.

5. Sabah with the population of 3,214,200, where the BN won 22 out of 25 seats, was also given six Cabinet jobs working out to one Minister for every 535,700. Counting Deputy Ministers, the “Negeri Di Bawah Bayu” (Land Below the Wind) has 10 federal posts.

6. On the contrary, Johor, which has the population of 3,305, 900 and contributing 21 parliamentary seats (out of 25) has only three full Ministers working out to one Minister for every 1,101,966 proud Johorians.

7. But the Johorians can spare their handkerchiefs. They are not the ultimate victims of Mohd Najib’s “congak”. The real “anak tiri” are the Selangorians of whom I am one. There are 5,037,600 of us and five BN MPs but not a single Minister. Talk about “congak” and about regaining Selangor in future elections! (I am not counting Paul Low Seng Kuan because I am not sure who he represents.) This is perhaps the Prime Minister’s way of teaching the Selangorians a lesson.

8. But the Selangorians need not shed tears. The two million Kedahans are no better. After returning the state to the BN and contributing 10 Dewan Rakyat seats (out of 15), they get only one Minister post.

9. Perakians are luckier. They gave 12 out of 24 parliamentary seats to the BN and got three Ministers in return. The people of Perlis, Kelantan, Pahang and Negeri Sembilan can count themselves lucky. They have more Menteris despite having fewer MPs.

10. Perlis (3 seats 1 Minister), Kedah (10/1), Kelantan (5/1), Terengganu (4/2), Pahang (10/2), Penang (3/0), Perak (12/3), Selangor (5/0), Wilayah Persekutuan (4/1), Negeri Sembilan (5/2), Malacca (4/0), Johor (21/3), Sabah (22/6) and Sarawak (25/6). [Note: Bro. Jalaluddin Bahaudin and Sis. Hardev Kaur, please correct me if I am wrong.]

11. Women who make up 49% of Malaysia’s population and a rising force in the economy are represented by only two Ministers and both of them are from Sarawak.

12. And Wanita Umno members, the backbone of Umno’s campaign machinery and the most loyal to the party, are the ultimate losers. They were left out in the cold for the first time in decades. They have no representative in the Cabinet.

In short, the “congak” does not quite add up and the mathematical logic is lost in what appears to be a haphazard arrangement that disregards the key elements of our demography and in the distribution of seats won by the BN. And the Cabinet could only become larger and unruly despite the BN winning proportionally fewer seats in the House of Representatives since the 1969 General Elections.

Then again, who are we to complain? Our peasant way of looking at things counts for nothing against the brilliance and cleverness of the people who make up the Prime Minister’s council of advisers - the political secretaries, the special advisers, the special officers and the Blue Ocean consultants. Wallahualam.

Thank you for your illuminating analysis. It just don't add up, and don't make much sense to me.Sadly it forebodes our failures again in the near the future.

Masih ada peluang untuk membuat pembetulan pada oktober nanti tetapi harganya terlalu mahal.

Ujian akal. Is Zahid Hamidi truly brave enough to tell Najib to migrate to Pekan during the UMNO GA end of the year?

Assalamualaikum,

YBhg Dato dan Pembahas yang saya hormati. Rakyat telah memilih wakil mereka di Parlimen dan YAB PM telah membentuk Kabinetnya. Kerajaan Persekutuan yang dibentuk hendaklah berfungsi sebagai sebuah Kerajaan yang adil kepada semua negeri dan rakyat Malaysia.

Sebelum menjalankan tugas eloklah Menteri melihat sendiri bidang tanggungjawab mereka dan sasarannya. Bagi Menteri Pertanian saya cadangkan beliau melawat setiap Pertubuhan Peladang Kawasan. Pengerusi PPK hendaklah menjemput petani dan penternak berkenal-kenalan dengan Menteri dan mendengar sendiri dari Menteri program transformasi pertanian yang akan meningkat pendapatan mereka.Dengan pendedahan seperti ini akan terjalin hubungan rakyat desa dengan kerajaan. Ini adalah kerana ahli peladang terdiri dari semua sektor rakyat tidak kira parti politik mereka.

Insyaallah dengan adanya hubungan terus secara terbuka ini akan menjalin hubungan baik antara rakyat dan Kerajaan untuk menentukan kesejahteraan Negara.

Raja Abdul Rahman bin Raja Mohammad Dain,

Salam Datuk AKJ

Pilihanraya umum dan pemilihan parti adalah dua perkara berbeza. Ada yang tidak pernah menang pemilihan parti tetapi tidak pernah kalah pilihanraya umum. Contoh termudah adalah Datuk Paduka Mukhriz Mahathir. Dia kalah bertanding Ketua Pemuda Umno Kubang Pasu dan Ketua Pergerakan Pemuda Umno Malaysia. Dia juga menang di Jerlun pada 2008 dan sekali lagi di Ayer Hitam pada 2013.

DS Najib menjadi Perdana Menteri atas kedudukan sebagai Presiden Umno. Pada tahun ini akan dadakan pemilihan Umno. Kaedah pemilihan pada tahun ini juga berbeza dengan pada masa sebelumnya. Bukan lagi hanya 2200 orang perwakilan di PWTC yang menentukan kedudukan jawatan dalam parti. Pemilihan kali ini lebih terbuka melibatkan ratusan ribu perwakilan di setiap peringkat parti. Persaingan akan lebih terbuka dan kedudukan DS Najib sendiri tidaklah selamat jika dia berterusan tidak menggembirakan ahli partinya.

Congak yang dibuat menunjukkan kegagalan nyata kabinet yang dibentuk mewakili kumpulan berkepentingan. Jika Umno kurang senang dengan keputusan DS Najib dan mahu menunjukkannya pada pemilihan kali ini, kedudukan DS Najib pasti terancam.

Itu baru berkisar tentang keahlian kabinet. Pelbagai pihak di kalangan pengundi yang memberikan mandat kepada DS Najib pada pilihanraya lepas juga sedang menantikan program transformasi yang mampu memberikan kesan langsung kepada mereka. Kedudukan ekonomi Bumiputera yang semakin tenggelam dikuasai Cina juga perlu ditangani oleh kerajaan secara jelas dan bersungguh-sungguh. Jika DS Najib mampu membentangkan satu bentuk transformasi ekonomi yang boleh mengubah lanskap ekonomi negara supaya lebih saksama, dia mungkin boleh selamat daripada tsunami dalam partinya.

Hardware yang terhasil dalam bentuk kabinet DS Najib dilihat tidak begitu menggembirakaan. Sama ada DS Najib berkesempatan menawarkan software yang menggembirakan sebelum pemilihan parti bakal mempengaruhi kedudukannya dalam parti dan kerajaan.

I think you are a bit olskool. What we need to see is these appointed ministers to perform as expected by rakyat and Najib.


Doesnt mean you are from selangor your rep is better than those from Sarawak or Sabah.

Grow old Dato. Enough of complaining.

Marmar said...

Those who excel at 'congak' are the ones with brains. If you don't have much of it you would remain peasant-like in your analysis. The physical strength of 10 people are additive. One person cannot carry a big piece of log but 10 people can. Unfortunately the mental strength of 10 people are not additive. One man with enough brains can carry the mental log by himself.

Our PM has the brains to easily surpass you at 'congak'. His eyes see what yours do not. The council of mortals surrounding him are there to coach him, to cheerlead him and give him comfort. But it's him who has to play the game. The mortals sitting before him around the table is another matter, which matters more than your analysis of seat distribution. You didn't comment at all on his selection. Please do. But then again, your eyes will never see what his eyes do. The only hope would be that your analysis would not induce some form of paralysis. 'Tis not thee who wears the crown.

Salam Datuk,

Saya teringat istilah Tun Mamak Bendahara gunakan beberapa tahun lalu..."half-past-six" ministers.

Rasanya yang diumumkan pada hari rabu lepas satu contoh yg sangat tepat, tahniah Tun.

Masa memandu dekat tol Sungai Besi, nampak billboard gergasi tunjuk potret PM. Teringat gambar besar bekas PM dekat Jalan Syed Putra tahun 2008 dulu. Rasanya, Tun M pernah tegur, gambar besar pembesar ni buatkan orang meluat. Tapi sesetengah orang memang tak makan saman dan tak mahu belajar daripada kesilapan silam. Ini agaknya dipanggil bodoh sombong. Tak tahulah kalau pasang gambar besar ni boleh dianggap satu perbuatan orang yang bersederhana. Satu lagi, nama Kabinet Transformasi ni rasanya tak lengkap, macam tergantung. Untuk lengkapkannya, elok dinamakan Kabinet Transformasi Negatif, barulah tepat. Btw, agaknya sudah sampai masanya seseorang perlu dibersarakan selepas pemilihan UMNO nanti. Congakannya, tak susah nak dibuat sebab kita pernah ada pengalaman tak berapa lama dulu.

Salam Dato,

1.As much as we wish to provide valuable inputs and suggestions,i believe DS Najib has given serious thoughts and due considerations on hopefully the right candidates for the job this time regardless of which Malaysian states they come from as long as they are not from Timbaktu or aliens from other planets.

2. DS Najib has five years to deliver and walk the talk until the next PRU else we vote him out.We have seen his four years various TRANSFORMASIONS never seen before that work.We ought to give him the chance.My only regret is that the chinese community is not well represented so to speak out of the community choice for whatever reasons. Economically,they are far ahead and appear least concerned.All of us are for good governance after all.

3.'Chongak 'and 'ujian akal' are things of the past in the absent of calculators (The only little chinaman shop in my kampung use Chempua- the chinese traditional calculator), computers,books and other reading materials.Talking about books i still remember sharing my brother and sister few books and still can recall this small pantun in one of the books that read:

Buai laju laju sampai pokok sena.
Beli baju baru dekat kedai cina...

For baju baru then we use to go to Chortimal, Globe Silk Store and Robinsons along Batu Road(now Jln Tuanku Abd Rahman named after our first Agong) just about the best shopping malls for our baju baru for our hari raya.All the way from Melaka.Gossh...

Also this one little primary school book that has a story of "Ini pasu bunga.Pasu ini ibu punya..." where the whole family shared in the Sekolah Melayu then change to Sekolah Umum (Now Sekolah Kebangsaan if you can still recall).Life in the kampung was easy and fun and we were happy as children.Mine was a fishing village in Melaka something like Beserah in Pahang (Ref:Geograhy book by Longmans) and also a History book -by Joginder Singh Jessy we memorised mostly as we progress into the secondary School. Mine was from the elite school for kampung boys STAR, Ipoh not MCKK without which I would be a fisherman like others in the kampung today.Why all these tales ?.This is another form of transformation too of environment change except that the challenges are different with no dirty politics then.

4.Some of us do suffer from SUPERIORITY COMPLEXS.By virtue of of their experience,seniority, educational background and exposures they want to be heard and their suggestions followed and taken into considerations and hence all these comments and suggestions here and everywhere.I believe DS Najib is receptive and is listening. We take it that he meant well and has put the national interest first and utmost.I have full faith in the MAN to lead.Lets put dirty politics behind and move on. Hopefully Din Melaka will be more kind after the PRU 13 that saw BN winning and was given the mandate to govern and he tow the line.I am not bothered where the Menteris come from.We want them to work for us Malaysians and deliver. Have a good weekend all and thank you sir.

Salam Dato’ Kadir Jasin

Hamba rasa eloklah tuan hamba jangan bercakap tentang para penasihat PM lagi. Tersinggung perasaan hati mereka. Terutama bila Dato’ sentiasa asyik menyalahkan mereka beberapa minggu ini. Hari ini pula, Tan Sri Sanusi pula mengatakan benda yg sama. Tak baiklah macam tu. Tuan hamba berdua ni berpakat ke? Eloklah kalau kita bersantun sesama Islam dan janganlah kita menyakiti hati sesiapa.

Sabda Rasulullah SAW; “Sayangilah saudara kamu sepertimana kamu menyayangi dirimu sendiri.” Apa kata kalau kita sama-sama menghayati hadith tersebut sepenuh hati. Mudah-mudahan kita semua diberkati dan hidup di dalam suasana harmoni. Janganlah kita jadi ‘firestone’. Biarlah YAB Dato’ Seri presiden sendiri yg menentukan kerana hamba percaya di sudut hati YAB Dato’ Seri berkata “hanya jauhari mengenal manikam”. Sekian TQ.

Assalam, Datuk

Maybe your 'congak' is not the same as the PM. But I always believe that if you are a minister in the cabinet, you should be serving the nation, not the state. I cannot see Datuk Sri Nazri Aziz concentrating the tourism industry just in Perak alone, but the whole nation. Whatever, we hope for the best to happen.

But again, perhaps the PM should be concerned over the support of the govt servants. From the results of the PRU 13, shows that a big proportion of the govt servants are not supporting the government. This is a serious matter as we know that they are supposed to carry out the govt agenda to serve the nation. If this issue is not handled, the government effort and policies can easily be sabotaged!

Salam Dato,





NI sikit `congak' saya..




Saya tinggal ditaman perumahan,ada lebih kurang 2,000 orang,dan 400-450 orang melayu dan 100-150 orang tamil.




PM KENA buat transformasi besar untuk penduduk minority bumiputra/melayu di bandar,pekan dan taman taman perumahan...




Walaupun majoriti penduduk malaysia ialah bumiputra,ditaman taman perumahan,pekan dan bandar..BUMIPUTRA/melayu/tamil ADALAH MINORITI.





Kebetulan,semakin ramai,walaupun bukan terbanyak, kumpulan minoriti ini adalah dari kumpulan berpendapatan `sederhana' dan `tinggi' ,dan adalah majoriti orang bumiputra/melayu kelas menengah dan sedikit `elite' dimalaysia....




Bumiputra minoriti ini SAMPAI KIAMAT PUN TIDAK DAPAT menang untuk dapatkan wakil rakyat UMONO/BN melalui pilihanraya.




Saya fikir sudah sampai masanya wakil orang orang bumiputra minoriti ini dipilih wakil diluar pilihan raya dan di tempatkan: katakan 1-2 tahun(satu wakil sekali sahaja!) di majlis tempatan,majlis perbandaran,majlis daerah,pejabat daerah, exco dun,di pejabat PM,dan bolih juga dipilih sebagai senator,menteri,setiausaha politik,setiauasa peribadi menteri dlll....




JIKA dibiarkan berterusan,minoriti
bumiputra ditaman taman perumahan, pekan dan bandar akan menjadi MANGSA URBANISASI komuniti
dinegara ini...walaupun memilih kerajaan BN/UMNO, saya PASTI ITU
tinggal ilusi dan impian sahaja, sebab TAK MUNGKIN MENANG PILIHAN RAYA untuk pilih wakil UMNO/BN di kawasan perumahan,pekan dan bandar terutamanya di KL,Selangor,Melaka, Pulau Pinang dan bandar bandar/pekan lain lawan DAP....




SAMPAI BILA BUMIPUTRA MINORITI DI taman perumahan,pekan dan bandar dilayan begini?.




Tuan PM, tolong ubahkan...

Salam DKJ,

Chonggak is about figures only.It does not talk about "value". When we deal with human beings, we have to consider their strengths and weaknesses and relate the same to the jobs they are supposed to do.

DS Najib , in his wisdom, has made his choice in the Cabinet line-up.Give him the trust and see the performances of his Ministers in the next 5 years.

Use our wisdom in PRU14.

Tentu lepas ni Air Asia menggigil takut dsn cepat2 minta maaf pd utusan.

Silap2 hari bulan Air Asia boleh bungkus, maklunlah org Melayu UMNO kan kaya2 dan merekalah yg selama ni yg sokong kuat Air Asia.

Orang cerdik tak akan melangkah perang kalau tak yakin menang. Kalau dah spisis tak cerdik dari muda apalagi dah tua.

Kalau memang Utusan ,Perkasa dan vateran hebat kenapa tak tarik lesen Air Asia atau arah mereka buang Azran.

Dengan Bank Islam bolehlah engkau buli dan pecat pakar ekonomi Melayu tu.

Terbukti MELAYU UMNO HANYA BERANI BELASAH SESAMA MELAYU JE.

Waktu nak menjatuhkan Dolah, Mahadir, Najib dan Muhyidin satu regu

Tapi oleh kerana Mahadir pernah belakangkan NAJIB dalam perlantikan TPM, dgn melantik DOLAH maka NAJIB rasanya tak begitu terhutang budi pd MAHADIR.

Rasanya kalau MAHADIR. nak tenguk anaknya ada peluang naik jadi TPM DAN SETERUSNYA JADI PM MAKA MAHADIR KENA PAKAT DGN MUHYIDIN PADA PEMILIHAN UMNO HUJUNG TAHUN INI

Mustapha Ong said...

Salam bro DAKJ,

I beg to disagree some of your facts, figures and of course your argument , even if it come from your heart, the truth nothing but the truth. Political power is not a number game, as the sum total some times do not tally. It's yet another political illusion and not a perception.

In a nutshell, there is one prime minister and he is entitled
To seek advice, views and opinion from anyone, including Tun Mahathir, but ultimately he makes the decision, right or wrong is his prerogative. You and I are not the PM and my simple message is "let the PM decides and make his choice of whom he wishes to be in his Cabinet". Najib may have a hundred and one reasons, that we do not know,not even our distinguished former PM Mahathir or even his "war room team of advisers". Let us avoid confrontation and move the country forward!

Assalamualaikum Dato'

Hati-hati congak Dato'!

Nantikan kena boikot macam Azran AirAsia!

Azran to tweet skit je, tu pun sentuh Utusan Malaysia, bukan Barisan Menteri Kabinet!

So, kalau nak kira "dosa" Dato' dengan Azran, Dato' nampak lagi besar lah. Kalau Azran 1 guni, Dato' 1 Tan.

Kesian Azran! Tweet hanya beberapa patah perkataan kena hentam kiri kanan oleh bendahara,temenggong, panglima UMNO.

Azran cakap tu betui lah, dah ramai orang tak baca utusan. Jualan merudum merosot. Alasan Azran, 1. Utusan tu secara sindirnya dikatakan bersifat rasis. 2. Pengarang Utusan tu dikatakan berfikiran sempit. 3. Tambahnya, Utusan itu tidak mewakili suara Melayu Malaysia.

Ha ha ha,

Utusan langsung tak boleh ditegur gamaknya. Itu satu budaya KHUSUS dalam kepimpinan UMNO. Pemimpin UMNO pantang ditegur oleh ahli. Tegur sikit, dikatakan menentang arus, langsung dicantas!

Utusan Malaysia yang berkali-kali kalah di mahkamah kena saman tu MAKSUM barangkali. Suaranya tiada lain adalah suara kebenaran!!!

Sebenarnya, Utusan Malaysia tidak sama dengan Utusan Melayu. Utusan Melayu adalah Penyebar Fikiran Rakyat. Utusan Malaysia Penyebar Propaganda UMNO. Bezanya langit dengan bumi!

Siapa nama ekonomist bank Islam dulu tu Dato'. Lupa saya! Apa perkembangan beliau ye. Nampak gaya Azran pun akan ikut langkah dia lah.

Dato' tak pa lah kerja sendiri, rezeki Dato, ALLAH SWT yang beri. REZEKI semua orang Melayu tu UMNO yang bagi gamaknya! Itulah propaganda UMNO kepada Melayu, tiada UMNO tiada Melayu.

SEBAB TU PASCA PRU 13 UMNO DAN UTUSAN MALAYSIA MEROYAN SAKAN GUNA ISU PERKAUMAN.

ps Dato tolong habaq la kepada KPN baru tu, udah-udah la dok tangkap pelajar-pelajar Melayu, pemimpin pembangkang Melayu, pengkritik Melayu. BERANI DENGAN MELAYU SAJA KE?????

AMBILLAH iktibar, no 2 Kastam pun maut ditembak di PUTRAJAYA. Nuuuh...pi la siasat mana depa dapat senjata api? Akhir-akhir ni, tembak bermotosikal dah menjadi-jadi.......tolonglah KPN prihati keselamatan dan kebimbangan rakyat. Banyak lagi kerja polis!!!!

Sdr Mustapha Ong, among other things said:

"In a nutshell, there is one prime minister and he is entitled
To seek advice, views and opinion from anyone, including Tun Mahathir, but ultimately he makes the decision, right or wrong is his prerogative."

1. It is exactly for that reason that I am critical of the so-called advisers, special officers and consultants. In my 44 years as a journalist and having covered all PMs, I have not come across anyone who had as many advisers than the current PM. If they are inept and gave the wrong advice, the PM, despite his prerogative, could be making wrong decisions based on bad advice.

2. This is not about confrontation. I have no personal confrontation with the PM. He hardly sees me and I made only one request to see him (in the presence of other editors) a long time ago over the "Allah" issue. It was not granted despite promise by one of his top media advisers. I met him twice and on both occasions the appointments were sought by others - one by Proton and the other by Pemandu (I wrote a book on Proton and Malaysian Business did a cover story on ETP and needed the PM's comments).

3. The last true private meeting I had with the PM was a few days before he became PM in 2009. Even then I wasn't alone. I was accompanied by Ahmad A Talib, Rocky's Bru and historian Abdul Malek Munip.

4. Disagreement? Maybe. I advised him years before he became PM to make sure that his family members do not become a liability to him, the government and the party. Then again I gave the same advice to other leaders, including (Tun) Dr Mahathir and Pak Lah.

5. Of course being leaders, they can choose to ignore and to forget my two sen worth of advice.

6. So I have to disagree with Mustapha's concluding remark "Let us avoid confrontation and move the country forward!"

7. This is not a confrontation. In any case the PM has enough advisers to answer me if they find anything wanting in this humble blog.

Thank you.

For Zahid to tell Najib...Its Impossible as to ask the sun to leave the sky..

The rakyat has 'congak' and BN passed the 'ujian' for GE 13.

Soon UMNO will have their GE when the reps can 'congak' and 'uji' Najib. Perhaps the Wanita and the Puteri can 'persuade' the lelaki of UMNO to tell off Najib..uh?

Salam bro AKJ,

Thanks for clarifications and certainly we all are entitled to our two cents worth of public opinion circulating in the public domain. Nothing personal and we are not the privilege ears and eyes of PM Najib.

Yes, I agree that Anwar should abandon his ambition to overthrow Najib and the BN government democratically elected in the PRU13. Malaysia's parliamentary democracy is not based on popular votes, but on the majority number of elected sets, both MPs and DUNs to form the federal and state governments respectively.

Better for Anwar to quit or form another party PKA which will groom our favorite Nurul Izzah into power in the next two party system of governance. Nurul is of prime minister material but unfortunately Anwar is racing against time. On the other side of the political divide, we have to promote up and coming future PM Khairy Jamaludin. There are many young and up coming capable politicians in both sides of the political divide in supporting Nurul and Khairy!

Apa yg benci sgt kat utusan... Siapa yg menyebarkan budaya tak boleh tegur? Siapa yang menyaman? Apakah racist dengan menyatakan "apa lagi cina mau".. Itu hanya soalan mudah dr pengarang. Jadi jika org cina terasa hendaklah mereka menyatakan tdk keputusan hati mereka.. Tiada salah utusan ingin menjadi suara umno.. Kerana harakah dan suara x keadilan pun adalah suara parti pembbngkang.. Yg penting kita membaca dgn lapang dada dan sedar bahawa berita ini dr sumber siapa.. Maka cari berita dr sumber lain pula jika kita rasa sangsi dgn berita tersebut.. Agaknya siapa x boleh kritik siapa?.. Perangai hasad dengki. kebencian. dan pessimistic mcm saudara lah yg menjatuhkn bangsa.. Sepatutnya kita tahu batas berpolitik yg mana tdk elok utk masa depan bangsa.. Yg mana perlu kita sokong.. Tiada salah untuk membeli dr peniaga melayu.. Bantu peniaga melayu walaupun mahal sedikit kerana kita tahu mereka tdk dpt lwn dgn peniaga cina kerena pembekal cina mengamalkan diskriminasi harga borong berbeza utk bukan bangsa mereka.. Kita ada kuasa pembeli.. Mengapa tidak kita guna kuasa kita utj membeli di kedai seagama dan sebangsa kita dulu.. Tolak lh pendirian politik kepartian tu.. Bukan kerana kamu pr maka kamu kena tolong dap dan peniaga cina dan boikot syed mokhtar dan peniaga melayu dan merendahkan usaha utk membantu sama bangsa.. Ini sy katakan ada batas dlm berpolitik.. Dan minda spt kamu dan pengarang ni lh bagi sy dikeluarkan atas dasar kepartian bukan atas kepentingan bangsa
