WILL THE BN WIN BIG IN BAGAN PINANG?

Recent events does not look good for the BN alliance; with the MCA divided between Chua Soi Lek and Ong Tee Keat and the MIC aiming its missiles at Tun Mahathir who is accused by Samy Vellu of interfering in the affairs of his party. Samy claims that the “Indian comunity is upset with the BN, and not with him”. Don't Samy know that when he mentions the BN, it also comprised of the MIC of which he is the boss; hence he is equally to be blame? This is the usual Samy's antics; blame others except himself.

I just wonder whether Samy realises that he does not command the entire Indian community in this country any more, but rather he only commands those in the MIC. If he had the command of the entire Indian community, he would not have lost the Sg. Siput constituency during the 2008 General Elections, which he had won for umpteenth time. Had he contested anywhere else, he would have lost any way. Is he now going to say that it was BN's fault that he lost? The Indian community is so divided now, especially after the Hindref 'uprising' where most are said to be angry with Samy.

What Tun Mahathir commented was the obvious, that the Indian community has had enough of Samy; his arrogance, loud and boastful language. He proudly claim his 30 years as a politician, oblivious to the fact that as a Minister he was merely apple polishing his BN bosses; and have ignored the plight of the many poor Indians; especially those living in the estates. Who does he blame in this instant; the BN or himself?

I think as a soldier, I have visited the families of the poor estate workers more than Samy does. Some don't even know that Samy existed; let alone see his face because most cannot afford to buy the Indian daily.

The 'all the president's men' that won the Saturday's MIC party elections, and the lost of Datuk S. Sothinathan for the Deputy Presidency may not be good for the BN in the up-coming Bagan Pinang by-election. Sothinathan is from Negeri Sembilan and his lost can have a negative impact on the Indian voters, who may not be pleased with the MIC. The Indians comprised about 20% of the total 5171 voters in Bagan Pinang.

The Chinese voters that comprised almost 10% is another cause of concern for the BN with the MCA leaders in tatters. Which MCA leader would lend support for the BN during the campaigning is going to matter very much to the Chinese voters. Remember that former Health Minister Chua Joi Meng is now with the PR pack. I am not surprise that if Ong Tee Keat is bent on demonising Chua Soi Lek, the latter might gang up with Chua Joi Meng, to campaign for the opposition. If this happens, this signals the eventual demise of the MCA.

Now what about the Malay voters. Of the 5171 total eligible voters, the Malays makes up almost 66% of the voters, and out of this, 37% are postal voters who are military voters. This is an exceptionally high percentage that can easily influence either a win or a lost for the BN. Being a former servicemen, it would be difficult for the opposition to sway the support of the soldiers, who traditionally have been supporting the government of the day.

There is also the perception that postal voting is not transparent and flawed, especially having to cast their votes a few days ahead of the actual polling date. Actually, there is no reason to do this, especially if the postal voter is located in the same constituency where the voting is held. The voter can cast his vote like anybody else, and his name checked against the nominal roll usually prepared by the Armed Forces Record & Pension Directorate. If this is done, transparency is upheld and there will not be any accusation that absent voters ballot papers are marked and place in the polling bags.

Now, if one were to ask me to assess the wining chance of the BN in the Bagan Pinang by-election, I would say that the BN should concentrate more on the Malay and Indian voters to ensure a win because the two races forms the majority. The Indians and Chinese community are clearly divided now and have lost confidence in the MIC and MCA. I think they are more incline to vote for the PR candidate, regardless of who it would be, and this have been the case in the previous by-elections.

And if the PR comes in convincingly during the campaigning, and if Isa Samad is the BN's candidate, I then foresee a situation similar to the Permatang Pasir developing during the campaigning. While many have confidence that Isa Samad can produce the result, my intution tells me that if Isa Samad's does win, it can spell trouble to the present MB leadership of Negeri Sembilan. If at all UMNO wants to see the removal of the present MB who is said to be a non performer, then Isa Samad would be their best choice.

In the case of the PR, losing the by-election does not matter much for the PR in Negeri Sembilan state assembly, as the status quo would remain. But to win is a major setback for the BN, and a clear indication that the PR is gaining ground in Negeri Sembilan. This would then be BN's greatest fear during the next General Elections.

Dato',
No matter who wins in Bagan Pinang, the problems faced by the locals i.e. lack of uniterrupted water supply to domestic users, haphazard development of beach frontage areas leading to virtual closure of access to beaches, untreated sewage polluting the beaches will continue unabated.

If the meaning of this by-election is that the people of Bagan Pinang who have been living under BN have to wait until their wakil rakyat is dead to get a replacement of a better BN's wakil rakyat who can overcome their woes as posted by abdulhalimshah, then all other people who have voted for a BN's wakil rakyat better pray that all those no good BN's wakil rakyat will die so we can have a replacement.

"tentera bersama rakyat" turun padang untuk laksana projek jiwa murni di mana ada pilihanraya kecil, atas perintah menteri. kini dikenali dengan "projek mi segera".

see how low the generals have brought down the armed forces, especially the army, to the level of mee maggi - cepat dimasak, sedap dimakan?

how unit commanding officers voted for his personnel hence the 100% voted for umno/bn is no secret. is this still happening?

SAUDARA LIM, MAYBE I CAN HELP REPLY TO YOUR QUESTION

written by penangboi, September 16, 2009 01:07:44
I have already mentioned how the modus operandi is for UMNOputras and other corrupt BN sycophants steal billions from the rakyat.

For those who missed it, here is how it works:

1. First, think of a project which is super-sensitive and stip in patriotic, religious and economic overtures so that when the project is proposed no one would dare to object to it. The best types are for example mosques, hospitals, schools etc.

2. Approach a minister to submit a paper addressed to the PM. Don't bother about anyone lower.

3. PM will then endorse on the submitted paper with 'saya setuju dengan cadangan' or 'saya sokong cadangan diberikan kepada syarikat XXX' or words to that effect.

4. The endorsed letter is then taken to the Ministry of Finance where the project is tabled and funds allocated. A letter from the Ministry will then be sent to the Ministry under which the project falls under.

5. The ministry in charge of the project will then issue a letter of Intent (L.I.) to the company to start preparation of the project.

6. After weeks and months of negotiating and 'top-ups' to the contract sum, the ministry then issues a Letter of Award to the 'successful' company.

7. The awarded contract sum will be many many times inflated to cover all those who are part of the chain of command - from runners to politicians to the political secretaries, to the ministers etc.

Yes, at the end of the day we do get the school, mosque, hospital etc built; if we are lucky they won't be many defects, but you can bet your bottom dollar that if the project was done in a transparent manner we would be paying only a fraction of what it actually cost. Most of the money will go to non-productive intermediary agents who are mostly UMNOputras, BN politicians and their cronies. This is how the rakyat's money is robbed by those who walk the corridors of power.

Now that you know how it works, are you still going to vote for BN/UMNO? Are you such a masochist to receive more of these massive abuse of power?

“Mengenai kejayaan Malaysia yang disebut oleh Tan Sri KSN, saya setuju bahawa pada suatu masa dulu perkhidmatan awam kita adalah antara yang terbaik. Inilah yang menjadi pembina pembangunan negara. Tapi pada masa itu, perkhidmatan awam kita lebih profesional dan tak takut kepada Menteri. Mereka mempunyai takrif yang sebenar tentang apa itu “profesionalisme” dan apa itu “integriti”. Dulu, yang terbaik dari perkhidmatan awam lah yang naik pangkat. Mereka lebih berupaya memberi sumbangan kepada negara dengan pendekatan yang sedemikian. Budaya mengampu amat kurang sekali. Tak perlu main golf dengan Menteri . Kini keadaan berubah.Usah lah kita bandingkan dengan Singapura. Di sana mereka lebih berjaya membantu negara membangun walau pun tak ada minyak, kelapa sawit, balak, getah dan sebagainya. Kerana perkhidmatan awam di sana tahu membezakan kepentingan negara dengan kepentingan parti memerintah. Di Malaysia, kepentingan negara dan UMNO dianggap sama.

Saya amat bimbang dengan gejala ini kerana pada suatu masa dulu, regim komunis dan fasis telah pun menggunakan pendekatan yang sama, iaitu kepentingan parti komunis dan fasis dianggap sama dengan kepentingan negara. Jadi berlakulah keadaan di mana syarat utama untuk mendapat pekerjaan atau naik pangkat adalah berasaskan keahlian dalam parti dan lobi dalam parti. Dengan itu, banyak negara komunis dan fasis runtuh kerana negara gagal dibangunkan oleh perkhidmatan awam mereka yang lebih mementingkan parti, dan bukannya rakyat.”

Good institutions will curb the excesses of our politicians. No more stalled investigations by police on abuse, silent Lingam case, stalled internal affairs dept to investigate police, PKFZ, unresolved cases, missing witnesses, etc. Today, the internet can only highlight wrongdoings…..but it is the government institutions that can and must take action.

"but it is the government instituions that can and must take action", which government? whose system is corrupt to the core? Beyond Economical Repair (BER)!

Apa yang telah berlaku di Port Dickson boleh berlaku di Bagan Pinang dan kali ini mungkin kesemua 4 ribu lebih Undi Pos warga tentera mungkin akan masuk ke kantung BN sekiranya dilaksanankan. Bererti BN cuma perlu menang tak lebih 3 ribu dari 9 ribu lebih undi biasa bagi mengekalkan kerusi tersebut. BN pasti akan tentukan undi pos di boloti semuanya bagi memudahkan percaturan mereka untuk menang semula di Bagan Pinang.

Apa yang berlaku di Port Dickson dalam PRU yang lalu ialah undi pos tidak membantu kemenangan BN dan kalau kali ini undi pos juga mahu dijadikan alasan yang sama, maka caranya ialah cara yang sama juga, dan kali ini ialah dengan seruan kepada semua pengundi pos untuk "BOIKOT UNDI POS" dan biarkan kemenangan ditentukan oleh kuasa undian rakyat biasa, kerana undi pos boleh dimanipulasi dan atas sebab itu undi pos adalah undi luarbiasa.

Biar undi biasa yang terdiri dari 60% Melayu, 20% India, 10% Cina, 10% Lain2 menentukan suara rakyat di Bagan Pinang.

Jangan biarkan BN menang kerana undi pos. BOIKOT UNDI POS.

more reasons for 'crusade against corruption' to deny umno/bn a win in bagan pinang by-election. the incident in tldm lumut is a message to postal voters (military personnel) of bagan pinang that they are worth about rm70.00 of kueh raya and dua kampit beras. i cannot believe how military commanders can put their men so low, very much lower than the cost a lembu? anda ada harga diri, anda ada janji. pertahankan kedaulatan negara, tolak umno/bn, undi pas/pr!

Sdr Hussin,

This blog has not been blessed with contribution from many readers and if you care to check the most a thread had hit up to 50 or 60 comments and that also from few and handful same bloggers.

Well as crusaders, we just do our part when we have point to write so we contribute to this blog. We do our job and you do your job and we post the thing we know what is it all about. Please do not come hard on us if we don't contribute to your wish as everyone is doing it at their own free will, no force.

Now don't start chiding other crusaders for not coming up to give their piece of mind while you are so pumped up with lots of adrenalin. Why don't you just do your job and go on contributing even if you are alone for I believe we maybe alone here but out there, readers are reading us. I see you are very vigorous in your writing despite being a newcomer and to me you have posted interestingly enough in here.

I too have been wondering like you do but I learnt this is a blog of a military people where only those who have the will to fight will write here. The will of many others especially the serving military personnel are "captive" to their work regime for the obvious reason - writing here is inviting certain disaster to their career.

If you want to be a crusader and become one of our family, remember our common enemy is corruption. You'll be lucky to see a brave who can name names in this blog for the moment we start naming people in here, we must be right about it and be ready for their retaliation. Have you any name to post in here? So go on do what job is best you can do to contribute in whatever ways you can for Crusade Against Corruption.

It takes all sorts to make a world.

Selamat menyambut Aidil Fitri to you and all my muslim brothers of Mind No Evil.

bro FMZam,

thanks for your piece. corruption is in the system. maf is part of that system. corruption has become a norm. from the top to the lowest levels, involving the powers that be, where opportunities exist. what we see is the lack of actions, selective punishment as well as scapegoating indicating the weakness in the system.

you can be the greatest culprit but if you walk with those in the corridors of power, you need not worry. if action is necessary, it is a political decision, a scapegoat is identified and brought to court and 'found' guilty. period. the important thing is to have the rakyat to believe that the system is 'serious' in eliminating corruption.

patriotism should continue to live after retirement. bagan pinang, with over 4,600 postal voters (military personnel) is the right place to start. let us 'educate' our brothers in "patriotism" coz "the serving military personnel are "captive" to their work regime for the obvious reason - writing here is inviting certain disaster to their career."

salam aidilfitri, maaf zahir batin
