PAS DAKWA PEMUDA UMNO LEMBAB


Ekoran kempen bagi memastikan hak pengguna jalanraya mendapat pembelaan, PAS dan PR Perak misalnya telah melaksanakan bantuan memberikan bantuan guman kepada pengguna jalanraya yang di saman "ekor" dalam operasi yang dianggap sebagai untuk mencari wang dengan menekan penguna jalanraya khasnya rakyat.

Ekoran dari kempen tersebut, kerajaan telah mula mengendur dengan cuba menilai semula kes saman ekor. Dalam untuk mencari satu publisiti murahan, pemuda umno cuba menjadi juara dengan turut menyertai kempen dan hanya kedengaran selepas Pakatan mula mempersoalkan tindakan kerajaan. Ini seperti cuba menangguk di air keruh dari apa yang di jelaskan oleh Datuk Mahfuz Omar.

Beliau seterusnya mendakwa bahawa pemuda Umno berkempen hanya setelah PAS dan PR menyuarakan isu tersebut sejak sebulan lalu dan menyatakan bahawa tindakan pemuda Umno begitu lembab dan berkepentingan politik hanya untuk meraih simpati rakyat, padahal PAS telah memulakannya sebulan lalu lagi.Mungkin menyedari bahawa kempen ini berkesan , maka pemuda umno yang kekurangan idea mula melihat ianya sebagai satu isu yang harus diketengahkan walau pun meniru idea Pakatan Rakyat yang kehadapan dalam membantu rakyat.

Ramai yang terkejut dengan kes saman ekor, ekoran ada mangsa yang dikenakan saman ekor sehingga rm3000 ke rm 5000 walau didapati bahawa had kelajuan yang di lepasi ketika memandu boleh dimaafkan dan di pertimbangkan.

Ekoran isu tersebut, Datuk Mahfuz menjelaskan bahawa Pakatan Rakyat khasnya PAS akan meneruskan kempen dan tidak akan bekerjasama dengan kempen dari pemuda Umno.Ekoran pengguna jalanraya yang tidak mampu untuk menghidupkan cukai jalanraya kerana terlalu banyak beban kewangan yang perlu di bayar, ramai penguna jalanraya tidak memperbahrui cukai jalan dan menurut beliau lagi tindakan ini memberikan kesan yang nyata kepada pendapatan kerajaan sendiri.

"Saya difahamkan oleh peguam, insurans masih boleh diperbaharui walaupun tanpa cukai jalan," kata beliau yang juga pengerusi Kempen anti-Saman Ekor (KASE).

"Kenapa kerajaan jadi agensi penolak rezeki sedangkan pihak swasta mendapat wang daripada rakyat," soalnya.

Mahfuz berkata demikian dalam satu sidang media selepas menyerahkan memorandum membantah saman jenis itu kepada Menteri Pengangkutan Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha di Putrajaya pagi ini.

Are the police sabotaging the BN?

Ordinary Malaysians are not naive: they see the difference between the police treatment of the pro-ISA group and the anti-ISA activists and they understand the biased treatment. The police action only makes the people turn against the BN, observes P Ramakrishnan.

Sunday, 1 August 2010, marked the 50th Anniversary of the ISA. It was a milestone that had to be observed by every caring Malaysian. It was an occasion that deserved to be commemorated.

This evil Act has been with us for 50 years serving as a convenient and useful political tool to keep the ruling elite in power. For 50 years, this Act has terrorised innocent people. Some 10,000 people lost their freedom because they were detained under the ISA which gives them no recourse to the courts.

Their detention is at the pleasure of the Minister of Home Affairs. He is legally empowered to detain any Malaysian indefinitely by simply extending their detention orders every two years. No court of law can question the Minister’s detention orders. As long as he is of the opinion that an individual is a threat to national security, he can order the detention.

Such an unjust law has to be opposed. It was only logical that on the 50th Anniversary of the existence of this obnoxious legislation, peaceful Malaysians should commemorate this important occasion. In this instance, they planned to hold candle light vigil in eight states on 1 August 2010, the 50th anniversary of the enactment of this Act.

This candle light vigil would have taken place peacefully without any incidence – if only those gathered had been allowed to do so. Surely Malaysians are entitled to the freedom to light a candle, sing a few songs, deliver a few speeches and go home.

NGO events such as this don’t normally attract a mammoth crowd. At most only a few hundred people turn up. There was no public urging for Malaysians to turn up in their thousands.

So why was this peaceful gathering stopped? What was achieved?

The police action only made those present even angrier with the Barisan Nasional – not with the police. They were aware that the police only act on the orders of the BN – more implicitly on the instructions of the Umno ministers.

In Penang, when I arrived at around 8.50 pm I witnessed some activists being herded into a truck and carted away even before the event could take place at 9.00 pm. There were more police personnel present than people who had come to attend the function. They outnumbered those present by almost two to one. The police were ordering the people to disperse but they lingered on. What was inspiring was the fact that there was no fear among the people. No one ran helter-skelter. They stayed put.

At about 9.30 pm, my wife and I went to the Jelutong Police Station, where the four detainees were taken to. There were at least 50 Malaysians holding up lit candles and moving to an advantage position to attract the attention of passers-by. We bought a packet of candles and joined the group.

Motorists passing us on both sides honked their horns expressing their support. As more and more cars and motorbikes passed, their honking grew louder and more persistent. One cyclist even rang his bell!

When it became evident that the people were in support of the cause that we represented, that was when the police moved in and dispersed us. Even then, some did not go home. They stayed on at nearby coffee shops until it was time to free the detainees. Four of those still hanging around went into the police station to bail them out.

The people have a right to be angry with the BN. The police were tolerant of the pro-Umno group who came there to be unruly. They were provocative and were a nuisance. They came to cause mischief and disrupt the peaceful event to mark the 50th anniversary of the ISA. They supported the ISA. They could have held their own function elsewhere to express their support for the ISA. But why come here to wreck a peaceful event?

Why were they not apprehended? Why were the police tolerant of this group?

According to a Malaysiakini report:

“When asked if the police knew about a group of pro-ISA members believed to be Umno representatives gathering at the Square, Georgetown OCPD Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng conceded, saying 'Yes, they tried to create trouble and agitate”.

They tried to “create trouble and agitate” and how were they treated in comparison to those who were arrested? It was clearly a case of double standards.

Ordinary Malaysians are not naive. They see the difference and they understand the biased treatment.

This conduct is not a plus sign for the BN. It is definitely a minus sign. The police action only makes the people turn against the BN.

The BN must realise that the police action is only sabotaging the BN.
