D N41 T -2 : M & M's services and reminders...(terjemahan Bahasa Malaysia disediakan)

"Kalau beri pitih, ambi; kalau beri gula, kacau; kalau beri kain, pakai; tapi hak mengundi nanti, pangkah bulan." (If given money, take it; if given sugar, stir it; if given clothing, wear it. However, come election day, vote for the moon),” said Nik Aziz (Kelantan MB)
Weekend is the time to catch up with mainstream news. Nested within the news is Manek Urai. This time it's M & M's time. No, it's not the sugar coated chocolate but Muhyiddin & Murugiah...:)

11th July 2009 carry the news of T Murugiah, deputy minister in PM's department, setting up one stop centre booth in Manek Urai. What's interesting is T Murugiah is still in the centre of PPP's "who's the actual President" debate. Remember that M Kayveas has expelled T Murugiah from the party. So, the logocal question is - why is Murugiah still in Najib's government? A minor slap in the face for Kayveas, perhaps?

From the news, I will say that Murugiah's booth is not popular in Manek Urai. Only a handful turn up with their problems. Why? Late announcement? Poor PR? Bad political gimmick? I leave it to the readers to fill in the blanks...

12th July 2009, TV3 carried news about Muhyiddin claiming that BN has poured money in Kuala Krai by building schools and teachers quarters. As I have said many times before, the federal government is obliged to provide the needed basic necessities and that includes education. Education comes hand in hand with schools and schools need quarters to house their staffs. In short, Muhyiddin cannot claim credit of building schools to BN. It is their job and responsibility to provide the necessity so why harped on something that they need to provide? If PR is the government of the day, PR needs to provide these too. Based on that, BN's claims of bringing development to Manek Urai is a non-issue.

Malaysiakini postdated 12th July 2009 reported a "sweetener" offered by Muhyiddin Yassin. Muhyiddin's offering a new RM 10 M 300 m bridge connecting Manek Urai baru and Manek Urai lama, provided the voters give BN their much needed win come 14th July 2009. It is now clear that BN never learns - Is that RM 10 M BN's money or our money? Win or lose, BN should provide the bridge, using the rakyat's money. There is a hint of threat here. Either vote for BN or pay the price. Is this practise acceptable? What a pity! This is a desperate move from BN.

Just food for thought. If BN wins, who do you think will get the contract? My answer - most probably one of UMNO's cronies will get the project. Is this what we want? To enrich BN cronies? Is this how much Muhyiddin is rating 12,292 voters of Manek Urai? How much is the average cost per voter? RM 813! That's the cost of RM 10 M bridge equally shared by 12,292 voters...Is that the price of a vote in Manek Urai??? Do Muhyiddin thinks Manek Urai will fall for the bait? He might think so, but I am confident manek Urai will reject his advances.

TV3 on Buletin 1:30 on 12th July 2009 also play a small role in doing its part to belittle PAS. By subtly showing the sacrifice made by their on-site reporters, TV3 "accidentally" indicated that the water supply for Manek Urai is wanting. The treated water supplied by the state government has problems in pressure and also frequent disruption. As an alternative, the villagers has to resort to using gravitational pull to gravitate collected untreated water from their hilltop reservoir to their homes. TV3 has done their job in subtly potraying that the state government has failed in providing the basic necessities to Manek Urai.

These issues does not blow away Kelantan oil royalty which Muhyiddin has directed Petronas to respond within 48 hours. That 48 hours has passed on 11th July 2009. No response from Petronas. Either Petronas accept that Kelantan is entitled to oil royalty money or Petronas did not heed to Muhyiddin's direction.

Issues raised by Muhyiddin and TV3 coupled with Murugiah's booth could not overwhelmed Kelantan oil royalty issue. PAS also deliver another TKO punch to BN when they bring out Nasharuddin to dispel BN's claims that Nasharuddin has been sidelined in PAS. In short, BN is still lagging in Manek Urai.

"Demo bawoklah gapo-gapo pun, Manek Urai tok larie mano doh...kekal ngan bule..."

meaning : You can come with whatever you wants, Manek Urai will not be swayed...they will stay with the "moon"...


Translation (terjemahan Bahasa Malaysia)


Hujung minggu merupakan masa untuk mengikuti berita dari akhbar dan TV. Terselit didalam ialah berita mengenai Manek Urai.

Pada 11hb Julai 2009, berita meliput tentang T Murugiah, timbalan menteri diJabatan Perdana Menteri, membuka satu pusat serenti di Manek Urai.. T Murugiah kini sedang berada ditengah-tengah kemelut "siapa Presiden PPP yang sebenar". Ingat bahwa M Kayveas telah memecat T Murugiah dari parti. Secara logiknya persoalannya sekarang - mengapakah Murigiah masih berada didalam kabinet Najib? Mungkinkah ini satu tamparan yang halus dimuka Kayveas?

Dari berita, bolehdikatakan bahwa pondok Murugiah tidak begitu popular di Manek Urai. Hanya segelintir kecil saja yang datang dengan masaalah mereka. Kenapa? Pengumuman lewat? Masaalah hubungan awam? Gimik politik yang teruk? Biarlah pembaca mengisi ruang kosong...

Pada 12hb Julai 2009, TV3 membawa berita mengenai tuntutan Muhyiddin yang mengatakan nahwa BN telah mencurahkan duit di Kuala Krai dengan membina sekolah dan penempatan guru. Sebaigamana yang telah dikatakan beberapa kali dulu, kerajaan persekutuan diperlukan untuk menyediakan keperluan asas dan itu termasuk pendidikan. Pendidikan datang beriringan dengan sekolah dan sekolah memerlukan tempat penginapan bagi pekerja-pekerja. Secara ringkasnya, Muhyiddin tidak boleh mengatakan BN menyediakan sekolah-sekolah. Itu adalah tugas dan tanggungjawab mereka untukmenyediakan keperluan tersebut jadi kenapa memperbesar-besarkan sesuatu yang semamngnya tugas mereka? Seandainya PR menjadi kerajaan pun, mereka juga perlu menyediakan asas ini. Berdasarkan itu, akuan BN bahwa mereka membawa kemajuan ke Manek Urai bukalah satu isu.

Lapuran Malaysiakini keluaran 12hb Julai 2009 melapurkan gula-gula yang ditawarkan oleh Muhyiddin Yassin. Muhyiddin menawarkan sebuah jambatan sepanjang 300 m yng akan menghubungkan Manek Urai Lama dan Manek Urai baru bernilai RM 10J, dengan syarat pengundi memberi kemenagan yang amat-amat diperlukan BN pada 14hb Julai 2009 nanti. Ia menjadi terang sekarang bahwa BN tidak pernah belajar - Apakah RM 10J itu wang persendrian BN atau wang rakyat? Menang atau kalah, BN harus menyediakan jambatan tersebut dengan menggunakan wang rakyat. Ada unsur ancaman disini. Undi BN atau menderita. Adakah ini dapat diterima? Kesian! Ini merupakan langkah desperado BN.


Dalam Buletin 1:30 pm pda 12hb Julai 2009, TV3 juga memainkan peranan kecil untuk memperkecilkan PAS. Dengan cara halus, TV3 menunjukkan pengorbanan wartawan mereka di Manek Urai. TV3 dengan cara "tidak sengaja" mengambarkan perihal masaalah air. Air yang telah diwat yang disediakan oleh kerajaan negeri mempunyai masaalah tekanan rendah dan pembekalan selalu terganggu. Sebagai pilihan, orang kampung menggunakan rangkaian paip yang bersandarkan kepada tarikan graviti untuk membawa air yang ditakung diatas bukit ke rumah mereka. TV3 telah menjalan tugas mereka fengan mengambarkan kerajaan negeri gagal untuk memberi keperluan asas di Manek Urai.

Isu-isu ini tidak melenyapkan isu wang royalti minyak yang mana Muhyiddin telah mengarahkan Petronas untuk memberi jawapan dalam masa 48 jam. Tempoh itu telah berlalu pada 11hb Julai 2009. Tiada respons dari Petronas. Samada Petronas mengakui bahwa Kelantan berhak untukwang royalti minyak atau Petronas tidak mendengar arahan Muhyiddin.

Isu-isu yang ditimbulkan oleh Muhyiddin dan TV3 diganding pula dengan pondok Murugiah tidak dapat melenyapkan isu wang royalti minyak Kelantan. PAS juga telah memberi pukulan TKO kepada BN apabila mereka membawa Nasharuddin untuk menolak tuntutan BN bahwa Nasharuddin telah dipinggirkan di dalam PAS. Ringkasnya, BN masih ketinggalan di Manek Urai.

"Demo bawoklah gapo-gapo pun, Manek Urai tok larie mano doh...kekal ngan bule..."


Till then...G'nite M'sia...wherever u are...

It is just too little too late ! The people of MU will show the ruling regime that playing with fire with get their hands burnt. They are so idiotic to treat people like children. You do this and that, mum & dad will buy you sweet ah, sound so much like a parent sweet talking their child.

Just watch out for the result and this may just be another battle of waterloo for bn and the beginning of bigger things to come in GE13.

nightcaller said...

Ahoo

Let me put it this way...PAS will retain Manek Urai with reduced majority.

Bn will claim that the Malays are returning to BN's fold..wishful thinking.

Najib will be announcing more and more populist goodies...
