I am very disappointed. Many things have been hijacked by Pakatan Rakyat.
At first, we read that PKR wants to restore immunity of monarchy. Then this happened.
Then, we see a new shout-it-out: 'Ketuanan Rakyat'. To me, it is more like a Ketuanan Pakatan Rakyat.
Of course all of a sudden we had claims from Kedah ADUNs and Perak ADUNs about bribery. Read: Najib Bankrupt.
As always, before any investigations, the Ketuanan Pakatan Rakyat judged Barisan Nasional as corrupt.
Perhaps some members or leaders of BN are corrupted, but it is very wrong to generalise the whole party as a bad apple.
The United States Democrats continue to govern the country, although there was a scandal in Illinois that involved the former Governor who was replaced recently.
Americans are more mature when it comes to political mentality.
One bad apple does not make the whole basket of apples unwanted.
I understand that Keshvinder Singh (DAP-Malim Nawar) and Abdul Yunus Jamsari (PKR-Kuala Kurau) lodged a report with MACC.
I wonder if there were concrete evidences presented. If they did not have any concrete proof, then I am very confident that when MACC throws the case out, Ketuanan Pakatan Rakyat will say "See ... they are bias".
According to Pakatan reps tell of attempts to buy them over, Keshvinder claimed that he was offered RM 10 million, Perak MIC Chief Post and a State Exco post.
But if we compare with Pakatan Perak reps: We were offered millions to quit, Keshvinder claimed that he was offered RM 20 million, Perak MIC Chief Post and a State Exco post.
Benefit of doubt exists, Keshvinder. RM 20 million and RM 10 million is a big figure. Don't just mention some random numbers to sensationalize issues.
I think Keshvinder also made a very big mistake as a lawyer, politician and DAP member. I suggest he reads Karpal questions MACC's motive.
Karpal said "A person is presumed innocent until proven guilty, that’s elementary".
But Keshvinder made a big mistake when he said "I urge Najib to come forward and explain the matter because this shows that the federal government is corrupt and desperate". [Malaysiakini]
How do you know about that even before MACC investigates or the Attorney General files a case in the Court, YB Keshvinder?
Innocent until proven guilty. That's elementary.
