More 'drop outs' join PAS

Its confirmed that former Bukit Aman CID chief Fauzi Shaari has joined PAS, being among the first big names who joined the Islamic party.

It was about a month ago when rumors and 'political indicators' named him together with Bukit Aman Crimes Investigation chief Ramli Yusoff and ex-Umno Cabinet minister Kadir Sheikh Fadzir on the probable 'major line-up' in the Islamic party.

However, Ramli and Kadir have yet to make any decision.

No surprise at all.

PAS has been busy recruiting political 'drop outs' and ex-senior government officials who turned their back on Umno and Barisan Nasional over unknown reasons or for failing to get to the top seat. And while continue to receive government pension until the day they die, the switch camp and support the Opposition.

They were once good government servants. Never had they criticised the ruling party and the Cabinet while still in service. Except for Ramli who won his legal battle in court, the others had to wait until they retire to join PAS or PKR or DAP.

No. Don't blame them. Its their personal rights to join any party the wish. However, the question that remains - why did they decide so only after they retired from the public service or after leaving the Cabinet? What 'light' have they seen at the end of the tunnel?

Ooo... there must be a good reason. They must complete their service in order to get the lifetime pension and other perks, is it so? Or grab whatever opportunity to make big bucks before bidding farewell to the service? A good reason, right?

Nevertheless, something crossed my mind. What is wrong with Umno and Barisan Nasional that prompted these people to crossover to the Opposition? Is it the system, the style of administration or something else?

Who should conduct a study and take up this matter seriously?

Any answer?

I think the money to condemn UMNO and the top post must be very GOOD.

Plus the sky high praises heaped upon you.

Only thing is - you must TOE their line.

yup!

no point commenting on who joins pas and the opposition.

bn and umno must do a 'muhasabah' as to why members are leaving.

its time to blame others. we must improve ourselves, instead

salam tn,

tak jadi soal mereka hendak masuk pembangkang. mereka ini jenis baling batu sembunyi tangan. ketika dalam perkhidmatan lagi mereka sepatutnya dah sertai pembangkang dan tak perlu tunggu sampai pencen baru nak berbuat demikian.

apa pun, pas memang suka manusia jenis ni, mereka yg sudah hilang jwatan dan tidak mempunyai rekod kerja yang cemerlang.

biarkanlah!

lantak diorang la.

mereka ni memang dah tak boleh pakai punya worang.

macam kadir, kalau nak join dap pun boleh. kita pun dah tau perangai hodoh dia.

tak rugi pun kita.

i like your line 'What is wrong with umno and barisan nasional that prompted these people to crossover to the opposition...'.

u have a good point of argument there.

yes, what is wrong? for people like kadir to make stinging statements about umno and the govt was something for us to ponder.

if more and more people are leaving the ruling party and join the opposition, there must be something not very right about umno, mca and bn as a whole.

what kind of people are they?

ungrateful lot!

more malays are joining the opposition.

why?

because umno is getting irrelevant.

so, let's join pakatan!

ada baiknya kita kaji kelemahan BN daripada menghentam mereka yang meninggalkannya.

apa yg sdr persoalkan, iaitu apa silap umno dan BN memang ada benarnya.

pemimpin perlu cari punca masalah dan selesaikannya terlebih dahulu bagi memperbaiki imej dan kedudukan parti.

This kind of switching of party loyalties happen all the time all over the world.

In America you find Democrats crossing over to join the Republicans, and vice versa.

This is quite normal and can be expected because after all isn't it true that all political parties say (or claim) that all they really want to do is serve the nation and the people. Therefore, if that's the case then any party will be acceptable the only consideration being that it, the party, is really sincere in its promises and possesses the ability and competence to bring progress to the nation and the rakyat.

pas dah takda orang lain nak ajak. maka dia pun carilah orang yang gagal dapat tempat tertinggi dalam kerajaan dan kabinet. mereka ni, yang hidup atas pencen kerajaan, ibarat meludah ke langit dan terkena muka sendiri. mereka ingin merobohkan tembok umno dan barisan nasional atas sebab peribadi, bukan atas faktor perjuangan. hati2lah dengan mereka ni.

no reason to criticise them.

as u said, umno and bn should digest its position.

Jai,

Choice of political party is what democracy is all about. Whether they have been in public service or cabinet representatives previously is immaterial. They were previously employed by the government of the day. We should be mature enough to differentiate between government and political parties. Therefore it is not wrong to be in the opposition while still enjoying your pension which is your entitlement for the years of service to the government.

kenapa makin ramai orang melayu keluar umno dan masuk dap, pas dan pkr?

umno perlu muhasabah diri untuk kaji kelemahan dan kepincangannya.

dah banyak kali ia disuarakan tetapi tidak diendahkan oleh pemimpin atasan.

Simple maaa.. this OLD GUARD dah terbiasa menerima perhatian/tabik hormat/di panggil TUAN tiap-tiap hari.. oleh itu apabila dah pencen suddenly semua itu hilang dalam sekelip mata..tiada perhatian tiada apa-apa.. biala tiada apa-apa maka kebiasaan that OLD GUARD perlukan perhatian maka dicari mereka dimana atau siapa yg boleh memberi perhatian..

maka... habis kan ayat ini sendir

Baguslah tu.. yang drop out biarkan joint PAS atau pakatan rakyat. Janganlah dok bising2 pulak. UMNO fokuskan kepada yang bagus2 dan berpotensi tu....

Dear Just Read,

I like these 2 pieces - which make yr argument sound like kidstuff.

1. And while continue to receive government pension until the day they die, the switch camp and support the Opposition.

2. They were once good government servants. Never had they criticised the ruling party and the Cabinet while still in service.

Allow me to try to argue (on their behalf).

1. The pension they receive is from the Govt - not from Umno.
2. While in service, they were loyal to the govt of the day - they were not loyal to Umno.

Are you insinuating that the pensions pensioners received are from Umno's coffers? And govertment servants are free to criticise the government while in service?

Come on la. Don't be so naive.
