Kit Siang depicting Ghani as himself

Just two  days after Ghani Wins Praise From Kit Siang, the Johor Barisan Nasional chairman and outgoing Menteri Besar has suddenly found himself under a very personal attack by the DAP supremo who is his rival for the Gelang Patah seat.

I am of the opinion that Kit Siang is trying to portray Ghani as a racial extremist so that he could neutralize Ghani's most important appeal among especially the Gelang Patah Chinese electorates - a moderate Malay leader who enjoys good relations with the Chinese and other non-Malay communities and has proven himself to be an effective menteri besar for the good of all Johoreans.

This I believe is Lim's tactic for the battle of Gelang Patah. Accuse his rival to be a Malay extremist so that the Chinese majority in the constituency will forget what Ghani had done to develop the place, and at the same time deflect his own racialist tactics and personality by accusing his rival of doing and being exactly that.

The following is the story of Lim's attack yesterday -

Ghani: Kit Siang is getting desperate

CHEAP SHOT: Gelang Patah BN candidate blasts opponent for insinuating he was a racist

 JOHOR BARU: JOHOR Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman has expressed disappointment that his opponent for the Gelang Patah seat, DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang, had accused him of playing the race card.
  Ghani said Lim should not resort to  insinuating that he is racist just to gain support from the Chinese voters who made up the majority of constituents in Gelang Patah.
  "I believe that he (Lim) is getting desperate. Everyone knows that I am not racist, and that is why I think he is trying to paint a picture of me being  one," said Ghani to the New Straits Times yesterday.
   Earlier in the day, Lim had called for a press conference where he, among others, had accused Ghani of waging a campaign based on racial sentiments.
  Lim had quoted reports by pro-opposition news portals which suggested that Ghani had tried to scare Gelang Patah voters about the consequences of voting along racial lines.
  "Ghani is sounding more like Perkasa leaders Ibrahim Ali and Zulkifli Noordin as what he said (as reported by the news portals) is contrary to his image as a moderate, rational and level-headed leader."
  Lim, who was reading a prepared statement, claimed Ghani's rhetorics also indicated that if BN loses in Gelang Patah, the coalition would also lose the Federal Government.
  Ghani in his response stressed that it had never been his intention to scare the Chinese voters as suggested by the pro-opposition news portals.  The websites quoted him as saying that there was a possibility that Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang may become the prime minister of the country in the event the opposition pact wins the general election.
  "All I said was that I have read news reports that the opposition is considering Hadi as a possible prime minister. Just because I said that, does it mean I'm racist?
  "What I actually pointed out was that Malaysians have a choice between someone such as Hadi and Datuk Seri Najib Razak as their prime minister and I believe they should choose the latter.
  "I was not trying to scare the Chinese by saying that. I think that Johoreans whether Chinese, Malays or of other races should reject Hadi because having him as prime minister will be bad for our moderate Johor ways."
  Ghani also believed that Lim's attempt at equating him with leaders of the Malay-rights group Perkasa was aimed at portraying him as a Malay extremist and therefore should be rejected by the Chinese voters in Gelang Patah. DAP leaders are known to use Perkasa as the Malay bogeymen in getting support from especially the Chinese electorate.
   The outgoing Johor Menteri Besar had on nomination day on Saturday stated that he chose to contest in the Chinese-majority Gelang Patah constituency because he did  not want the country to be more racially polarised.
    "I want to defend Johor's moderate ways. That is why I want to contest in Gelang Patah. I don't want these people to bring new things which will divide us."
  Gelang Patah has 106,864 voters comprising 52.4 per cent Chinese, 34.3 per cent Malays, 12.5 per cent Indians and 0.8 per cent others.

  1. When you read a script during a press conference which you yourself called, you have actually prepared what you are going to say. A sincere person usually says it from his heart and is not afraid of fumbling on his own words.

    If you are giving a speech then is okay to read from scripts, but not during a press conference.

    People who are not sincere always have something to hide. Anyway, did he barred other reporters from his PC?

    You know la, the DAP never actually practice democracy. 753 of their own members also, not invited for CEC nomination.


    1. Poor citizen have to pay 10% extra for my low cost home whereas rich bumis have 10% discount for million dollar house. what demo cracy?

    2. You should ask the DAP that question. They can't even practice democracy in their own leadership elections. Same problem with PKR. What democracy?

  2. UMNO = Ghani = Rasuah = UMNO

  3. Hahaha... anon 16:04 also is getting desperate.

  4. Do people still read NST?
    You're using their reporting as basis for analysis and intelligence?

    Every day i check out a couple of 7-11s and newsvendors stands, the huge pile of unsold NST always the same. I asked the clerks and they always said "biasalah tiap2 malam kena buat return checklist, buat lenguh tangan je..." Haha

    ~ Klaung girl

  5. To Anon 16:04, there might be corruption in the ruling party/gov. It is not a surprise as corruption comes with power. But the willingness of the ruling party/gov to transform and undertake the responsibility to root out corruption are commendable and should be supported. Unlike the opposition who are swelled with immoral practices and lack of governance/transparency, the ruling party/gov does not impose a gag order and continue to transform.

    1. Willingness? WHen Taib said those MACC boys are naughty boys and Najib kept quiet, you know what's the determination of najib to curb corruption. Najib is impotent when face the warlords.

  6. To this gutless, balless" Anonymous23 April 2013 16:04" what are you insinuating actually. Spill your guts out will ya.? You wanna play hardball? Dont hide behind annony"mouse" nick will you.

Heard term called " kow tim" . In their vocab, everything is kowtimable. Dap is the mother of all corruption n racicst
