MCA Predicted Kedah will return to BN in GE13 which I agree.

Kedah under PAS is more islamization and also stagnant in its economic development. I agree with Chua that more Chinese in Kedah will vote BN in the state level, but still vote PR for MP seat.

Chinese support in Kedah returning to BN: Soi Lek

SUNGAI PETANI, Aug 5 (Bernama) — Support of the Chinese Community in Kedah towards Barisan Nasional (BN) has improved following a number of issues involving the state government said MCA President Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

He said the community was beginning to have confidence with BN after finding policies of the state government under the PAS leadership, not favourable to non-Muslims.

“Based on the feedback we have received, the Chinese are generally not happy with the state government. Their disappointment has worsened following the introduction of regulations over the interests of non-Muslims like the directive to close entertainment centres during the month of Ramadan.

“They are also aware that supporting Umno and BN was better than supporting PAS and DAP which has not brought any development to Kedah,” Soi Lek told reporters after officiating the state MCA Convention here today.

He was confident that the Chinese community in Kedah would continue to support BN and ensure the party regained control of Kedah from the opposition in the next General Election.

“The sentiments of the Chinese voters show their rejection towards the government of the day because they have failed to fulfill their promises made during the last general election. These are voices we are hearing,” he said.

I went to Kedah recently.
The people as very happy with pakatan.
Most of the Chinese and Indians do not want the son of Tun apanama as their MB, so they will reject BN.

Jitra Kid says:

Kedah people will support PAS because voting for BN may end up having Mukhriz a/l Apanama as Menteri Besar. That’s the risk people do not want to take.

Fredie Yong says:

MCA’s position in BN is a marriage of convenience, not one of love and respect. MCA has outlived its usefulness, and are no longer attractive and appealing to the loose connons. Umno has uttered more than the talak tiga. Salvage whatever pride and dignity that you still cling so tenacious to and leave amicably.

CSL is a good target for Nazri, because he is politically a very lethargic character evading addressing his party’s loss of Chinese support issue and had confessed that many leaders of his party are lazy but he ain’t gonna doing anything about it but leaving it to the rakyat to kick them out.

MCA still claims it has the Chinese support? Then all the MCA candidates must contest in Chinese majorioty areas, instead of contesting in non-Chinese majority areas.

馬華以”下屆大選成績若不如2008年大選將不入閣”威脅華裔選民, 不尊重華社.

事實上馬華已失靈,創黨至今已不知發生了多少大大小小的黨內糾紛,某些馬華領袖只視私利為重,常因利益衝突鬧分裂,搞派系,搞貪污,使到基層黨員不知何去何從.

馬華靠嘴巴是沒有用的,應該去”荷蘭”逆向思考!!

Elina says:

If MCA is good in prediction, they should try their luck on Sportstoto or Magnum Jackport as their priority is to make money and serving people is secondary. That’s why Nazri has hinted that BN might dump MCA in its effort to court DAP.

Hasri says:

You are living in Johor and not Kedah, so you may not know the ground well enough.

What have BN done to Kedah in the past?

Enough said.

Don Anamalai says:

Time stood still in Kedah since the BN times, and PAS is helping to preserve the serenity for old time sake.

If you are tired of expensive city living in KL or Penang or JB, then come and stay in Kedah to stretch your retirement ringgit.

nkkhoo says:

Sungai Petani was developed progressively in 90s and early 2010s under BN. Kulim High Tech park is one of the landmark projects under BN.

What PAS did for Kedah development for last three years? None.

Langkawi tourism is also heading south under PR government.

Don Anamalai says:

You forgot to mention the following BN’s accomplishment in Kedah:

1) Perwaja Steel at Gurun
(one that brought down Eric Chia)
2) Padi Museum (gajah putih)
3) roof-top padi planting (Sanusi’s grand plan)

nkkhoo says:

I visited padi museum, the murals are great except its RM30 million billing is too exorbitant.

Sam Utd says:

You mentioned “developed progressively in the 90’s”. True but nothing from BN for Kedah after Tun M stepped down with a legacy in Menara Telekom Alor Star. Ask yourself how high tech is Kulim Park? Like Perwaja, lots of promises but little in delivery.

RM30 million for the padi museum could have been used to elevate the livelihood of kampong folks in Kedah. Now the museum is deserted in depilated condition.

Cannot blame Pakatan for “Langkawi tourism is also heading south”. BN has made it an overpriced destination. Langkawi only benefited BN cronies as tourism dollar did not trickle to Kedahans on mainland. Somehow the planned Singapore-Alor Star Firefly flight was canceled when PR came to power, thus depriving Alor Star folks the tourism dollar.

BN should have not have built international airport in Langkawi but made Alor Star airport an international one, thus ‘forcing’ tourists to visit Alor Star (thus stimulate the hotel & F&B business) on their way to Langkawi via Kuala Kedah on ferry. Of course they do not do so as it does not help the cronies as they want to funnel earnings directly in Langkawi island.

By the way, Langkawi folks are forever indebted for the duty free liquor. Beer for the price of todi! Cheers!

国阵已执政了超过半世纪,吵着种族课题,贪污变本加历,政府机关越来越腐烂和无效,甚至动不动就动武伤害人民。吉州更是因为国阵浪费了几十年光阴导致吉州现在那么落后,连国际机场也没!!!

民联政府自308吉州执政以来实施了不少惠民的政策,只是在宣传政策方面有必要在加强.

民联政府执政后,并没有影响各族的文化和生活习惯。华人餐馆啤酒照卖照喝,就算是在公开场合也一样。民联政府一上台便宣布降低土地税,接下来是资助20万令吉给华堂在华人主要商业区唐人街,成功主办盛大的第25届全国华人文化节,然后就是批准及资助5万令吉让吉华堂在马来由街桥头建立一座全马最大的永久性铁架牌楼,这凸显中华文化风格的牌楼耗资13万令吉,另加12万令吉作为维修费。州政府也每年拨出好几万元来让华裔庆祝中秋节,今年更轮到在双溪大年举办.

民联执政第二年就开始拨款给每一间独中各5万令吉,第3年更提高至6万令吉,以往国阵执政时从来未给予分文资助. 州政府也拨款20万令吉协助解决州内69所半津贴华小在去年6月开始所拖欠的水电费,州政府也拨款1万令吉资助吉打佛学院建新会所.

农历新年期间州政府也在大臣官邸举行新春施赠贫老活动,共有650人受惠,每人分获价值110令吉的施赠品,包括50令吉红包及芦柑,这是属于乐龄人士的.

教育方面政府也曾拨地3.65英亩价值250万令吉的土地给滂滂华小迁校之用.

政府拨款500令吉福利金给贫穷的逝世者家属,24小时内批准小贩营业执照,拨150万令吉活动基金给3个非土著团体即华裔,印裔及泰裔,贫寒子弟升读大学获得400令吉奖励金,进入学院则获200令吉,至于教育用途的土地税,州政府只象征式收每年10令吉,这惠及私立学校及非营利慈善机构.

Jika BN masih terus memerintah Kedah selepas pilihanraya umum ke 12 lalu sehingga ke saat ini, mungkinkah seluruh penduduk Jelapang Padi ini menjadi rakyat yang sangat bertuah dan kaya raya atas wawasan BN ‘Kedah Maju 2010’ ciptaan Menteri Besar terdahulu, Dato’ Seri Syed Razak Syed Zain? Patut diingatkan Najib mencanang 1Malaysia atas inspirasi ini.

Semua program kerajaan negeri pada masa itu diarahkan untuk mencapai wawasan Kedah Maju 2010. Dari papan iklan gergasi, hingga kepala surat slogan ‘Kedah Maju 2010’ menjadi paparan wajib. Dengan latarbelakang sosioekonomi Kedah yang masih ketinggalan pada masa itu, slogan pemimpin BN itu sangat tidak realistik. Semua pegawai kerajaan sedar hal tersebut. Tetapi itulah kelebihan seorang pemimpin apabila kuasa ada di tangan. Ia boleh menggagaskan sesuatu yang mengikut kehendaknya sekalipun tidak logik atau menyusahkan semua orang. Orang bijak pandai di keliling kelalang terpaksa mengikut saja.

Menteri Besar sebelum Syed Razak, Tan Sri Sanusi Junid lebih hebat dan canggih ideanya. Macam-macam ‘perkara pelik’ diperkenalkan kepada rakyat. Tapi semua tahu bahawa idea tanam padi atas bumbung, program jalan air Langkasuka, kelab bola masjid, University of Tomorrow , pusat lembu korban; semuanya malang menemui jalan buntu.

Dato’ Seri Mahdzir Khalid Menteri Besar yang bersikap realistik. Dia tidak minat dengan slogan bohong, lalu menghapuskan terus ‘Kedah Maju 2010’. Mana tidaknya, sewaktu beliau berkuasa, empat tahun menjelang tahun 2010, hutang Kedah hampir mencecah 2 Billion. Ditakdirkan Mahdzir dan BN rebah terguling sebelum 2010 dan hutang sejumlah melebihi RM2 Billion itu yang dihadiahkan kepada kerajaan Pakatan.

Persoalannya adalah orang Kedah mahu balik ke zaman kerajaan BN atas kiraan MCA? Lu pikirlah sendiri.

Anak Darul Aman says:

Apakah “jasa” yang ditinggalkan oleh Barisan Nasional kepada Kedah?

Menurut laporan dari Pusat Maklumat Negeri Kedah bertarikh 21 Oktober 2008, kerajaan negeri Kedah pimpinan BN mempunyai hutang kepada kerajaan Persekutuan yang berjumlah RM2.09 bilion.

Maklumat dari Utusan Malaysia bertarikh 2 Oktober 2005, Kedah mempunyai tunggakan hutang kepada kerajaan Persekutuan sebanyak RM450.96 juta, kedua tertinggi selepas negeri Johor.

Berbalik kepada laporan sama dari Pusat Maklumat Negeri Kedah, dalam masa 7 bulan pertama memerintah negeri Kedah, kerajaan negeri Kedah telah membayar sejumlah RM1.5 bilion hutang tersebut, dan baki yang ada kini hanyalah RM509 juta yang saya pasti sudah dilangsaikan setakat ini.

51 tahun di bawah BN, rakyat Kedah ketinggalan dengan negeri lain termasuk Kelantan walaupun 2 orang Perdana Menteri berasal dari Kedah. Tunku Abdul Rahman memerintah selama 13 tahun, dari 1957 hingga 1970. Manakala Dr. Mahathir Mohamad memerintah selama 22 tahun, dari 1981 hingga 2003.

Kesimpulannya, BN akan bawa Kedah hutang keliling pinggang, dan muflis bersama ekonomi Greece!!!

MCA mudah lupa.

nkkhoo says:

PR will lose some Chinese and Indian votes in the state seats with such a bad publicity against PAS-led state government.

Do you accept a record breaking 1.5 hour long state assembly meeting called up by PR?
