‘Enough politics and power plays!

Tit for tats! I am aware of the local guidelines and by-laws on banners and portraits but there are exceptions and here was the exception brother Ronnie – it was the PM of Malaysia visiting a district within the nation at a time of religious celebrations to show the world that despite our diversity we are all 1MALAYSIANS! – Dr Jacob George

Ini kerja bodoh!

This is absolutely stupid thing to do!

I cannot understand why a cloth banner with the portrait of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, put up to welcome him for the Chinese New Year celebrations, was taken down by the local council staff!

I am advised that the said celebration was set to be held in Pandamaran and the banner was put up by restaurateurs and traders who also had buntings close to their premises.

According to reliable sources the act was undertaken by Klang Municipal Council (MPK) who undertook this and others which include posters, banners and buntings around the township, meant to welcome Najib, without notice.

It was a surprise ‘thingy’ of appreciation!

I am also surprised at this as it had no political slogans.

Politicians from all divides should learn to accommodate and be cordial more so, during these festivities!

We need political maturity all around and that goes to the BN fellas as well!

If everything becomes ‘politics’ we will divide the nation at each and every corner and we cannot go forth as a nation!

After all the poster was of the Prime minister of Malaysia who was visiting the Pandamaran New Village!

So my politicians of all divides – please stop playing politics at each and every corner of our lives!

And my dear friend State exco for local government, Ronnie Liu should know better than to say that the removal of the banner with Najib’s portrait had to be done as there was no permit approval from the local council.

He is right on cue of course but brother this is different!

I am aware of the local guidelines and by-laws on banners and portraits but there are exceptions and here was the exception brother Ronnie – it was the PM of Malaysia visiting a district within the nation at a time of religious celebrations to show the world that despite our diversity we are all 1MALAYSIANS!

 Our campaign against RACISM of all forms!
