Recently the call for UMNO party leaders like PM Abdullah Badawi, Education minister Hishamuddin and Federal Territory Minister Zulhasnan Rafique to step down. Shows how much of turmoil is brewing in the party. Coalition MCA leaders and party member are fighting among themselves to survive.
But MIC has been so quiet. This is truly the arena where MIC Chairman Samy Vellu is the champion. This is why he has been a Senior Minister for so many years. A legend. He could have won his last election seat. But he was caught off guard, he wasn't ready for Malaysia's new generation of politics. Especially the indians who became matured all of a sudden like instant Maggi. Malaysians actually started maturing after the BERSIH and HINDRAF rallies. Which took place late last year. Bringing forward the election was a wrong strategy by BN. Seeing them perform poorly at the elections.
But the issue now is not Samy Vellu but BN. DR Mahathir who started the initial calling for Abdullah Badawi to step down has now picked up momentum and UMNO members all around Malaysia are have started to join the bandwagon but not just to oust Badawi but many other party section leaders. This might be a genuine effort reform or just dirty politics at it's best.
Even Tengku Razaleigh has given a statement saying that Anwar probably be the next PM. Even tough Tengku Razaleigh himself is eying for the PM seat under the BN ruling. Anwar was the one who help build UMNO Sabah. So he has many strong allies over there. So getting a mere 30 parliamentary members to cross over might not be too far fetch as majority of BN seats are from Sabah and Sarawak. To be exact 54 out of 142 total BN seats won. And I'm very sure there is many in the Peninsular Malaysia who would be interested in jumping over as well.
So all this explains the outburst of UMNO members calling for immediate reform because people have lost hope in UMNO and Anwars growing power has given BN the shivers. I predict that UMNO will have it's party election before September. In this coming months we will be seeing many prominent faces being taken out. So let's watch what BN can come up with to win back their popularity. But my vote is against Race Based Politics. RBP is a sickness that Malaysia needs to recover from. The Malays in Malaysia are worried that their survival is being threatened and their future sold to the non-Malays by Anwar. Why do the Malays need to worry? If this makes you worried. Then Imagine all this years how the non-Malays would have felt. Put your feet in their shoes and see how their insecurity and deprivation has affected their lives. In Equality there is no master or slave. Those who need help is given help. We are all children's of this land. I wouldn't hurt my siblings and they wouldn't hurt me back either if we were all treated the same. What is there to quarrel or fight about if everyone is treated fairly and equally.
