Weird as it seems, but prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is going around the country rallying for support.
The PM was in Sarawak recently where he attended the Gawai Dayak celebrations there. Tan Sri Adenan Satem, the Chief Minister of Sarawak said that the state supported Najib because it was the ‘right thing to do’.
To that, Najib said that he and his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor can sleep well. Referring to Adenan’s support, Najib said that he is glad he is not alone and that he and Rosmah can now sleep in the same pillow and dream the same dream.
He added that he can read people’s faces when he shake their hands and he got that from Adenan who said that Najib had done more for the state than all the past 5 prime ministers put together before him.
Najib said that he has approved development allocations of more than RM1 billion since he became the prime minister.
That has always been the case isn’t it? Each time, it is the East Malaysian states which come out to show their support for the government so much so that Sabah and Sarawak are known as the ‘fixed deposits of BN’.
If it is anything to go by, Sabah and Sarawak have been most unconditional when it comes to support.
When you need support, look east.
When you lack support, look east.
There are so much we can learn from Sabah and Sarawak. That’s what 1Malaysia is all about, but it seems that those in power thinks otherwise. The PM talks about moderation and toleration. The people of Sabah and Sarawak are the best examples.
They give unconditionally. Perhaps there should be more East Malaysian ministers in the cabinet since those over ‘here’ don’t seem to appreciate. Food for thought?
