The partnership among PKR, DAP, PPBM and Amanah is looking like a ramshackle cottage hounded by political runaways from the past and present
By the day, the opposition pact Pakatan Harapan is looking more cluttered and disarrayed. Their inconsistencies in making a simple yet critical decision on who should lead the pact is indeed getting onto the nerves of voters.
Their top leadership radiate one common trait – and that is they are all power hungry and selfish to the brim so much so that they tend to forget that the public is scrutinising their every fumble and excuse.
Come on, after nearly five years since the last general election, these bunch of politicians in Pakatan Harapan instead of becoming more matured in addressing public concerns, they are more self engrossed in trying to untangle their own mess.
How can we ever trust them in running the country?
While they denounce, rundown, humiliate and even go on international platforms criticising Prime Minister Najib Razak and his BN government, Pakatan Harapan should first look into their own backyard that is no more impressive.
Running a couple of states does not mean one can manage the country as well. And if they think they have done well like in Penang and Selangor, it may be an opportune time to revisit their own ”success”.
Penang is nothing short of another Singapore in the making. Race wise it is so tilted and the cost of everything from food to housing has hit the roof.
The DAP-run state and in specific the island itself is fast becoming a rich man’s paradise, for even holidaying there can be deemed a steep luxury these days.
DAP has wiped the beauty off what Penang was by transforming it into a concrete jungle that has within eight years of their iron-fisted rule pushed the poor further down the economic scales.
Likewise in Selangor, there is more concentration being paid to intra-party political tussles than to solve the real problems of the ordinary folks.
Till today almost every road in the Selangor state is riddled with potholes, with some the size that could easily get a car trapped if not noticed.
There has not been any improvement in road congestion despite the multiple road dispersal systems initiated and enforced in a foolhardy manner.
Flaws in policy making
Just drive around Petaling Jaya and some parts of Shah Alam during peak hours and one would not be human if he does not land up cursing the state government for the mess that it has delivered to the users.
Many more flaws in policy making and areas of infrastructural developments but the list is pretty long to be mentioned here as yet.
But does the state government care? No. They are more interested to listen to their own consultants and crony builders and developers.
After all Pakatan Harapan leaders feel they are the best and as such they are now ready to take on Putrajaya.
Mind you, that is just two states and already peaking on their stupidity.
How are they ever to handle Sabah and Sarawak? Two large states that play such pivotal role in deciding the federal government through their parliamentary seats.
Pakatan Harapan has zilch in terms of an outstanding leader to helm the coalition in the Borneo states. And yet they build castles in the air and try to hoodwink the voters during their public talks, forums and live Facebook streams that the coalition is capable of winning the Putrajaya trophy?
Malaysians in general may be pretty unhappy with BN and Najib on many fronts but in order to take that gigantic paradigm shifting leap and handing over the baton to Pakatan Harapan, it may not be their cup of tea just yet.
One commits suicide when all options are closed and pressure-cooked to decomposing point but that has and may not even materialise for voters to justify running into the arms of Pakatan Harapan.
As of now the partnership between PKR, DAP, PPBM and Amanah is looking nothing short of a ramshackle cottage being hounded by people like Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Rafizi Ramli, Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng and even Anwar Ibrahim.
The bottom line is Pakatan Harapan with the assistance of the highly ”experienced” and unrivaled Mahathir is working diligently in handing a two-third majority in parliament to Najib come the 14th general election.
