Malaysia witnessed for the first time in 51 years after independence the emergence of a glimpse of hope to break off from the politics along communal line on March 8 when the rakyat let their votes to speak louder than words their message to the whole nation that it was time to change.
When our system of administration became corrupted with malpractices, all races joined hands on March 8 to burst out their extreme discontent. Together they voted in the alternative front.
The political shock gave out a ray of hope of political maturity which was heartening to the rakyat.
But lately, UMNO intensified with the gearing up of the long-time communal politicking. The UMNO-PAS meet on Malay unity (when we should be chanting national unity), the frenzied protests over call to open up UITM, etc were disappointing developments.
Perhaps the electorate of Permatang Pauh should exercise their votes to get across a strong message of aspiring for national unity!
The picture shows DSAI with an Indian voter.
