I wonder how long non-UMNO component parties in BN can tolerate UMNO any longer.
In an inaugural BN Selangor convention held in Shah Alam, UMNO, the dominant parties in BN arrange their leaders only to sit on the stage and address the convention.
Though representatives and senior leaders from MCA, MIC, PPP and Gerakan are invited to the stage later when PM arrived in the afternoon, representatives from MCA Kapar could not stay any longer and leave the convention when Tanjong Karang MP, Noh Omar said that non-Malays should be grateful that they were granted Malaysian citizenship.
Is Noh Omar in the spirit of 1Malaysia?
Not even MCA, MIC, PPP and Gerakan are not invited to sit on the stage and to address the convention, their senior leaders were asked to sit together with the crowds.
Is this how UMNO respect their friends in BN?
And about the speakers...Utusan Malaysia Chief Editor Zaini Hassan and Chinese Muslim scholars Riduan Tee Abdullah spoke and presented their views and findings.
They are connected to UMNO or UMNO-linked circle. Why MCA, MIC, Gerakan and PPP-linked scholars and thinkers are not invited?
Why was the whole convention dominated by UMNO? Why MCA, MIC, Gerakan and PPP are ot invited to participate in organizing the event?
I had the privilege of being involved in two PR conventions. First, the national PR convention and second, the Selangor PR convention, held not so long ago.
All component parties in PR were involved. Not one party was sidelined.
How could MCA, MIC, Gerakan and PPP's grassroot hold their heads high when their leaders are not respected by UMNO?
How could MCA, MIC, Gerakan and PPP expect to win back Selangor when their leaders are not respected at all?
It is the right time to STOP BN taking over from taking over Selangor.
