Zainuddin Protests To BBC Over Air Time For Rejected Leaders
KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 (Bernama) -- Information Minister Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin has lodged a protest with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for giving air time on television for leaders of opposition political parties rejected by the Malaysian people to express their views on the country's political and current affairs. He said the BBC move did not help to enhance relations between

In every election on record the BN has abused the government machineries and facilities and use them in furthering the interest of BN. The use of airtime in the electronic media has once again been abused in this Ijok By-election. On Monday, 23rd April 2007 in the 5pm Berita Negeri News Bulletin, Samy Vellu in his capacity as the President of MIC was caught red handed , reading the BN "manifesto" (recorded for U-Tube; but why should we load it and watch him repeating his lies and boasts (a new highway from Selayang to Ijok; Ijok to Assam Jawa) he doesn’t deserved it and the following captured images of his 3 minute 5.39s campaign) would be sufficient proof of this abuse.
RTM1 made it appeared as if it was a "lintas langssng dari Ijok, Selangor" and insert the campaign into the start News. What a shame!. They should give back PKR an equivalent time slot for this unfair advantage

KUALA SELANGOR, April 24 (Bernama) -- MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, Tuesday described the action by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in distributing fliers containing various allegations against the government and Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders as "world class dirty politics". He said the action would only be self-destructive as it made it clear to the people of how low their leaders were willing to stoop in their campaigning, he told reporters here. "If we want, we can distribute thousands of pictures of their leaders and adviser but we're not going to do it because what happened in the past, we will not raise it again." The BN was not interested in emulating the opposition party's immoral action, said Samy Vellu who was among the victims of slander during the Ijok by-election which is seeing a straight contest between K. Parthiban of the BN and PKR candidate Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim. He said the PKR leaders should know that if they wanted to be true leaders of the people, they should not do things that were not beneficial including to themselves. "The dirtier they play, they will lose in the end," said Samy Vellu who earlier visited two houses in Taman Purnama, Batang Berjuntai, that caught fire, Monday.

Ijok Malay Interests Taken Care Of, Says Muhyiddin
KUALA SELANGOR, April 24 (Bernama) -- Umno Vice-President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has assured Malays in the Ijok constituency here that their interests will be taken care of even if their elected representative is an Indian. Therefore, he advised the Malay constituents to discard any apprehension they might have and vote for K. Parthiban of the Barisan Nasional (BN) on polling day on Saturday in the by-election. Parthiban, 38, is facing Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, 61, of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in a straight fight in the by-election, necessitated by the death of BN Assemblyman Datuk K. Sivalingam, 59, on April 4. Muhyiddin said the interests of the Malays, who make up the majority of the constituents, would always have the attention of Umno, which is the principal partner in the BN coalition, as well as Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo.
"There is no reason for the Malay community to feel apprehensive that they are represented by a member of the Indian community. Although the BN candidate is an Indian, there is no racial sentiment because the elected representative stands for the BN which represents all the communities. This is the spirit and concept of the BN consensus," he said at a "ceramah" (talk) here Monday night. Muhyiddin said the Ijok constituents were a privileged lot because the constituency even had a representative of the menteri besar, apart from an elected representative, and the Malays can channel their grievances directly to the menteri besar.
He also said that the federal government always made sure that the people were well looked after by channelling sufficient funds for development in their areas, including in Ijok which has seen the implementation of many development projects of late. "In some places, development is expedited, in others it may get delayed a little, but no place is ignored," he said. On a claim by PKR that the opposition party can bring about more development through its elected representative, Muhyiddin said that would be impossible because the BN government was the best for the people.
"The opposition must not assume that development means only infrastructure development because it also encompasses economic, social and cultural development, all of which require millions of ringgit in funds to implement," he said. He said the renewal that Khalid of the PKR promises to bring to Ijok cannot materialise because he is only one voice and development required commitment from all quarters which can only be implemented by the BN coalition of parties now administrating the country.

Najib Asks Malay, Chinese Voters To Reciprocate Indians' Contributions
KUALA SELANGOR, April 23 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has asked the Malay and Chinese voters to reciprocate the contributions of the Indian community who have strongly supported Barisan Nasional (BN). They should do so by supporting K. Parthiban in the Ijok by-election this Saturday, said the deputy prime minister at a function in Taman Pancaran, Batang Berjuntai, attended by over 1,000 people of various races tonight. He said that of 56 state seats in Selangor, the Indian community had three, thus the Malay and Chinese voters should support the BN candidate from the MIC. He said supporting BN candidates irrespective of their races had been the party's practice and this had been shown when they won the Batu Talam and Machap by-elections as a result of joint supports. "So, the time has come when the MIC is contesting, the Malays and Umno and the Chinese reciprocate the contributions of the Indians by supporting the MIC candidate," he said. In the Ijok state by-election, Parthiban, 38, is facing Parti Keadilan Rakyat's Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, 61.
Najib said the Malays should not worry because voting the MIC candidate did not mean they would lose power because Umno was still the backbone of the BN and would remain the thrust of power of the Malays. "It's not a question of deciding between a mosque and a temple; some say if one wants a mosque, vote for Keadilan... wants a temple, vote for the BN. They (the opposition) are harping on this. Why? because to the Malays, they talk one thing and when meeting the Chinese, talk another thing and meeting the Indians, they talk a different thing. "That's Keadilan. But, the BN says the same thing to all races," he said. He also reminded the voters not to be confused by thinking that the by-election was held to change the government or set up a new one, instead it was to fill a vacancy and elect a representative who could bring development.
"Don't be confused... this election is not the time to cast a protest vote," he said. The deputy prime minister also advised the Ijok voters not to vote for the opposition now thinking that they could turn to the BN in the next general election. They would lose out if they thought that way because if the opposition became an elected representative even for a short while, he would not be able to bring development or solve the people's problems. For example, if Abdul Khalid was elected and wanted to develop a housing project, he had to seek a land approval from the Selangor government. Only a candidate representing a party wielded with power like the BN could bring development and reform in line with the people's aspirations, he said. At the function, Najib announced a RM200,000 allocation for the construction of "Balai Islam" in the area as requested by the Muslims there.= = == = == = == = == = == = = =Extra Bonus Satellite Pic from Penang
