What we are witnessing is a desperate attempt by BN not to allow Ijok to be another Lunas in the making. The 482 families who received their windfall Land titles could be translated to over 1000 votes for the BN and with the roping in of the sick Indian Progressive Party (IPF), Datuk M. G. Pandithan, another 1000 votes can be added and yet the Selangor menteri Besar Datuk Dr Mohd Toyo has the cheek to say the issue of titles “is not a bribe to garner votes

Even the Education Minister Datuk Hishamuddin challenged the opposition to bring these “bribery issues to court.

Opposition Bankrupt Of Issues In Ijok - Najib

KUALA SELANGOR, April 21 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the opposition no longer have any issues to raise in the by-election for the Ijok state seat and are resorting to issues which have nothing to do with the locals, including the murder of the Mongolian woman, Altantuya Shaariibuu. "What is the relationship between the Mongolian woman and the people of Ijok? There is no relationship, it has nothing to do with me too. It has nothing to do with me, yet it is being raised up here as an election issue," said the Deputy Prime Minister when opening the new SRJK (Tamil) Bestari Jaya building, here today.

“BN has its own strategy and not dance to the opposition tune. The most important thing in Ijok is to win the support and trust of the people. We don’t want to follow the opposition tune”

Yesterday, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim pressed Najib to clarify whether he knew about the involvement of his senior officer in the killing of the Mongolian woman as it had received wide media coverage internationally. Najib was earlier reported to have said that he would reply all the allegations made against him by the opposition who continuously linked him to the Altantuya case in the Ijok by-election. In his speech, Najib also criticised the opposition who claimed that they were capable of championing the cause of the estate workers when the candidate they were fielding to contest against the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate was a corporate man (Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim) who had always been `at the top' and did not know of the problems of the grassroots.

“They raised issues not connected here. What connection has the Mongolian woman with the people Ijok? What connection has Altantuya with the people here? There is no connection at all even with me, but it has been made into an issue. The allegations are baseless"
"I don't have to sue him, but I have the option to sue him

"Who knows better about the problems of the estate workers other than people who were born in the estate such as the BN candidate, K. Parthiban?" he said. On education, the Deputy Prime Minister said the government would certainly give consideration to and look after the Tamil and Chinese national type schools in the country and if one were to look within the South-east Asian region, no other country except Malaysia had allowed the setting up of vernacular schools. This was because the leaders in this country strictly maintained the understanding that existed under Malaysia's social contract.

What was decided by the country's founders had always been upheld by the government until today and this was reflected in the by-election for Ijok where the BN was fielding a candidate from the MIC although more than 50 percent of the registered voters in the constituency were Malays, he said. This was because the majority of the Indian community was strong supporters of the BN as proven all this while, he said.

Najib also announced that the Education Ministry would build an additional block for the SRJK (Tamil) Bestari Jaya, here soon and would solve the problem of transport for students going to school, as requested by the school to achieve the single session schooling system. At a separate function earlier, the Deputy Prime Minister announced an allocation of RM800,000 for the construction of a hall for SRKJ (C) Yuk Chih, here.

Najib To Reply Allegations Made Against Him Within The Law

BATANG BERJUNTAI, April 19 (Bernama) -- Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said today he would reply, within the law, to all the allegations made against him by the opposition political parties, including the claims linking him to the case of a murdered Mongolian woman. The deputy prime minister and defence minister said he had already begun replying to the allegations. “I will reply to the claims raised. I began to give my replies last night," he said when asked by reporters about the personal verbal attacks allegedly made against him by the supporters of the opposition parties outside the Ijok state by-election nomination centre at the Batang Berjuntai Community Hall, here.

During the process of nomination, from 9 am to noon, supporters of the opposition political parties, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), PAS and the DAP, were heard shouting "Altantuya" and "Mongolia". Altantuya Shaaribuu is the name of the Mongolian woman who was murdered and her body blown to bits with explosives at a secondary forest near the Subang Dam in Puncak Alam, Shah Alam, last October. Two policemen, Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, 30, and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, have been charged with her murder while political analyst Abdul Razak Abdullah Baginda, 46, has been charged with abetment in the murder. The trial is set to begin on June 4. Najib, when launching the Barisan Nasional (BN) election machinery for the by-election last night, had hit out at the attitude of the opposition parties which preferred to use the strategy of personal attacks.

Today, after the announcement of the candidates contesting the by-election, Najib told reporters he would do everything necessary within the law to counter the allegations.

"I will do what I feel is right in the context of the country's laws because we cannot do something that contravenes the law," he said. He said it was important to allow the process of law to proceed unimpeded. Najib described the opposition tactic as personal attacks but expressed confidence that the voters of Ijok would dismiss the allegations.

"It is the same as in the case of Machap (the recent by-election in Melaka). The people of Machap dismissed them," he said. Najib said the opposition would raise similar issues during the campaign in the Ijok by-election, polling for which is on April 28. "Of course ... it is okay, we will give the replies. We are not afraid of that," he reiterated. Asked whether he would take legal action against whoever it was who had made the allegations, Najib said he held that option.

"I don't have to sue him, but I have the option to sue him," he said. The Ijok by-election will be a straight fight between BN candidate K. Parthiban, 38, and Tan Sri Abdul Khalib Ibrahim, 61, of the PKR. The by-election is being held following the death of BN State Assemblyman Datuk K. Sivalingam, 59, on April 4.
Sivalingam had won the seat by beating Abdul Rahman Moharam of the PKR by a majority of 1,649 votes in the general election in 2004.

And AG, Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail responding to queries from newsmen on the impending court case: “Don’t’ Assume. This is the trouble with you. I keep on telling you people, be fair, just look at the facts. I am siding with anybody. Side with the makamah or side with the government. It doesn’t mater to me. I look at hard facts whether there is evidence. I have not actually confirm these exact words were spoken”

Samy Vellu, Pandithan On Same Stage Sunday After Eight Years

KUALA SELANGOR, April 21 (Bernama) -- The small Batang Berjuntai town will see a history being made tomorrow as MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu and his counterpart from the Indian Progressive Party (IPF), Datuk M. G. Pandithan, will share the same stage after eight years. Samy Vellu is expected to attend and speak at a function hosted by the IPF at 2.30pm at the party's operations room in Taman Sri Cahaya as part of Barisan Nasional (BN)'s campaign in the Ijok by-election. The presence of two Indian community leaders who at one time were political foes is expected to boost the spirits of workers from both parties to ensure a bigger victory for the BN. In the 2004 general election, K. Sivalingam of the MIC won the seat with a 1,649-vote majority. He died on April 4.

IPF deputy president V. Senggutuan told Bernama that Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo and Penang Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon were also expected to attend the function. The function was expected to draw 1,500 people, he said. "The IPF has strength of 1,087 votes in the Ijok state constituency and will work hard to ensure they are given to BN candidate K. Parthiban of the MIC in the straight contest against Parti Keadilan Rakyat's Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim," Senggutuan said. The last time Pandithan and Samy Vellu appeared on the same political stage was during the Teluk Kemang by-election that was won by the BN, about eight years ago. Pandithan was an MIC vice president but was sacked from the party in 1989 and became Samy Vellu's political foe.

Despite that, the IPF has always supported the MIC and other BN candidates though it is not part of the BN components. Several months ago when Pandithan fell sick and was hospitalised, Samy Vellu visited him several times?????????????. Pandithan has also said that the clash between them has ended and he wants to work with Samy Vellu in the interest and for the sake of unity of the Indian community.

Welfare Of Malays In Ijok Will Be Well Taken Care Of, Says Ahmad Zahid

KUALA SELANGOR, April 21 (Bernama) -- The Malay community in Ijok will be well taken care of although the Barisan Nasional (BN) is fielding a candidate from the MIC, said Deputy Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi. "Athough the Malay community had wanted a Malay candidate to be fielded in Ijok this time, it needs to realise that the BN practises a power-sharing concept," he told Bernama after campaigning in Kampung Jaya Setia here today. He said the Malays need not worry that their welfare will be neglected as the state's leaders would ensure this will not happen.

He also took to task the opposition for engaging in personal attacks on BN leaders saying the opposition parties were resorting to that because they were bankrupt of issues.

The Ijok by-election is being held following the death of BN Assemblyman Datuk K. Sivalingam on April 4. The BN is fielding K. Parthiban while the Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Polling is on April 28.

Provocations In Elections Doesn't Promise Victory - Abdullah

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said “I hope it will not be a trend” - on the violence?

From Amer Hamzah Md Sap
WINDHOEK, April 21 (Bernama) -- Political parties resorting to provocative actions in election campaigns, like what happened during nomination for the Ijok by-election on Thursday, did not mean victory for the parties, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.

The prime minister said such actions should not happen during election campaigns and must be avoided. "Provocative action approach should not be adopted in election campaigns. It's important for political parties to abide by the election laws. If one wants to campaign, do it properly," he told Malaysian journalists covering his three-day visit to Namibia which ended today. The prime minister was asked on party supporters hurling plastic bottles and pieces of wood at each other during the nomination process for the April 28 by-election.

Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim and several others sustained minor injuries in the incident. Abdullah, who is also Internal Security Minister, said his reminder was for both Barisan Nasional (BN) and Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) contesting in the by-election. He also said personal attacks were also not a good approach to be used in any election, hoping that it would not become a trend as it was unhealthy. Abdullah, who is also BN chairman, said he had never issued a directive to the BN machinery to get prepared for the general election.

"I don't have to tell (anybody to be prepared for elections), everybody seems to know," he said, adding that three or four years after a general election is held, all parties would talk about another election. Nevertheless, the government had a responsibility to implement projects that had been planned so that they were not disrupted or stalled because that was what people wanted, he said. Namibia is the last leg of Abdullah's eight-day three-nation tour of Africa. Earlier, he visited Sudan and Kenya.
