Dear YB Nga

Posted on December 9, 2020


Malaysiakini on 7th December, 2020, reported that, in trying to explain the move by DAP to open negotiations with UMNO to form the new Perak state government, said the following :

“It will create a strong and stable government”, resolving the issue of defections and enable a new UMNO-PH government to command a 2/3 majority in the state legislature.

You know, I can imagine the very same thing being said some almost 50 years ago.

By Tun Abdul Razak as he tried to entice the opposition parties into the then mooted Barisan Nasional.

Most took the bait.

One stood like the proverbial rock of Gibraltar and resisted the seduction.

The Democratic Action Party.


The DAP of then.

After Anwar’s infamous announcement in September that he had the numbers to form a new government, on 25th September, 2020, Malaysiakini reported Guan Eng as categorically stating that “DAP will not cooperate with an Umno that is under the leadership of (Umno president) Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and (Pekan MP) Najib Abdul Razak. Absolutely not”.


UMNO at federal and state level two different creatures?

One corrupt to the core, the other an unblemished lamb?

You are also reported to have said that “any cooperation with Umno would be conditional and must be based on justice, good governance and multiculturalism”.

Hmmm, sounds so much like what you chappies were saying whilst you were then wearing your Pakatan Rakyat caps and seeking to justify getting into bed with Dr M.

YB, going into the 12th, 13th and 14th GE, was not the clarion call by you to the rakyat to bring down UMNO / BN?

And did not the rakyat finally do just that on 9th May, 2018?

Now you would have us believe that an UMNO-Harapan collaboration would be good for the people of Perak?
