DPM Muhyiddin was reported to have announced that in conjunction with the upcoming Merdeka Day, government leaders will be taking a ride on the ERL (I think it’s a free ride)from Putrajaya to KL Sentral, and will be distributing the Jalur Gemilang (wonder who is footing the bill for the flags) to whosoever wants the flag. Besides distributing the Jalur Gemilang, these government leaders will be adorning a specially designed batik shirt (don’t know who is paying for it) proudly depicting the 1 Malaysia theme (minus the word BERSIH, of course).
I just wonder how much the government will be spending on this ‘extravaganza’ just to give away the Jalur Gemilang to unsuspecting Malaysians at KL Sentral, all for free. It would be most honourable and befitting if all the costs incurred be shared among all government leaders taking part. What is a few ringgit among them; a noble cause to honour our Merdeka Day. Anyway, when else can Malaysians get something free from their leaders? Besides the flag, I would also recommend that a sumptuous feast be given to all Malaysians at KL Sentral, also for free and also to be shared by our government leaders. Honestly speaking, if Muhyiddin takes this cue from me, I am quite certain; he will get the extra votes during the next GE. And hasn’t our government leaders been so generous to voters during all previous GE, and I suggest they should maintain this sense of true generosity.
I do not know how such an ‘idealistic’ idea could come out from Muhyiddin and his gang? I hope this wasn’t the idea of my forefather’s kampung folk from Jelebu i.e. Rais Yatim, because I know he loves to wear some fancy shirts, and this specially designed batik shirt would be adorable to him.
And finally, to add to what our leaders have planned for the upcoming Merdeka Day, I suggest too that PM Najib announce a ‘Merdeka Day bonus’, like how he plans to put more food on the table of Malaysians, and put the brakes of corruption.
