- MCA and DAP can talk to Chinese educationist groups, chambers of commerce, various clans and associations as well as other Chinese based parties.
- MIC can talk to parties like IPF and Hindraf for a united Malaysian Indian community
- PKR can shake hands with Malay and Malaysian Indian rights groups, professional lawyers and doctors who are mainly non Bumiputeras
But UMNO cannot talk to PAS about Unity Government concept just because it means Malay unity ?
Are you not racists yourself to fear the unity of Malays ? Is it justified to see a united non Malay community but it is totally acceptable to see the Malay community split ?
This must end and Yang Berhormat Ipoh Timur Lim Kit Siang must be given a better and proper briefing about reality of politics today.
As time passes by, so is his political career - merely fading away like the sunset.
Read : Kit Siang - Unity talk IS against 1 Malaysia
1 Malaysia means a united Malaysia. It does not mean that the rest can unite while Malays are encouraged to be divided and segmented.
UMNO-PAS Unity Government talks were never about a merger of two political parties. It was just UMNO inviting their brothers and sisters in Islam to a table talk for good governance.
DAP and PKR knows that if PAS, being a strong Opposition party with 1 million members, participates in a BN Government, they can no longer scream the words of INJUSTICE, TRANSPARENCY and INTEGRITY.
Having a strong critic and Opposition on board the Government, there will no longer be stories like this and the Opposition political parties can no longer spin stories they are good at.
That is why, DAP and PKR are totally against PAS-UMNO talks.
As for the fear of Malay Unity, I would like to remind all quarters that UMNO has never said that they will leave Barisan Nasional to team up with PAS.
The spirit of Barisan Nasional remains and unity in 1 Malaysia includes everyone who holds a Malaysian identity card.
1 Malaysia, Uncle Lim.
