UMNO Baru Founder Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad may not want the Chinese Chauvinist DAP to rule, although they are riding on him in the process to cripple BN by the success of the Malays turning their back against UMNO.
The Fourth Prime Minister is obsessed going around demonising against UMNO President Prime Minister Dato’ Srì Mohd. Najib Tun Razak with manipulation of facts, slanders and lies. It also at the expense of UMNO.
Dr. Mahathir proclaimed that “DAP assured me that if they are in power, they would adhere to the Federal Constitution”.
What he is naively trying to insinuate is that the Chauvinist Chinese DAP would adhere and respect Special Malay Rights provisions in the Federal Constitution, like Article 153.
However, it is doubtful that DAP leaders would leave alone institution for benefits of Bumiputera such as MARA, UiTM, PNB, FELDA, RISDA, FELCRA, TH and various Zakat Boards.
UMNO President Prime Minister Dato’ Srì Mohd. Najib Tun Razak was mindful enough when this was specifically mentioned in this year’s UMNO General Assembly keynote address.
After 2008, it is apparent that DAP was the culprits behind who wanted Selangor State Govt to interfere and dip into the zakat monies collected in the Baitulmal for development purposes.
Let us be reminded for the brief 11 months DAP ruled through puppet MB Perak Nizar Jamaluddin, land parcels of 999 years lease were rampantly issued to Non Malays, particularly their supporters.
In the eight years DAP ruled Penang, many Malay petty traders have suffered. This is not withstanding the many corruption involving key State Govt officials.
Even the Chief Minister and family are rampantly involved in corruption and at the moment being charged.
DAP is the party with 37 MPs in Dewan Rakyat. That makes them the most powerful Opposition compared to PKR, PAN, PAS and the new kid on the block, Dr Mahathir’s Pribumi Bersatu.
Dr. Mahathir is DAP’s Trojan Horse into the traditional Malay voters. Inadvertently, this would destroy UMNO when DAP comes to power and the struggle for the Malay Agenda is gone.
Then again as a animal being riden on, it does not the same perks when the journey ends. The rider would be in the warmth and comfort of the abode where as the ride, remains outside with the elements.
Maybe DAP sincerity of providing fair and progressive leadership is something Dr. Mahathir trying to hoodwink voters, especially the Malays.
However, the Malays would never be the mule that Dr Mahathir allowed himself to be.
