LKS: Why harass Bersih if people are fed up with it?
PETALING JAYA: The DAP’s Lim Kit Siang has questioned the need for five weeks of effort to intimidate Bersih organisers and supporters if it was true that the people were fed up with Bersih, as claimed yesterday by the Prime Minister, Najib Razak.
He said today: “If Najib was confident that Malaysians have become fed up with Bersih or feel that its rallies do not bring benefit to the country, why was it necessary for Najib’s strategists to launch a six-week high-powered campaign to demonise, frustrate and thwart it?”
“Najib’s government should have just left the proposed Bersih 5 rally alone, and not abused state resources and powers to sabotage it.”
Lim said that if it was true that Malaysians were fed up with Bersih, then yesterday’s Bersih 5 rally would have been a dismal failure. Najib could have then credibly pointed to the futility of Bersih’s efforts.
Najib is going into Denial - contradicting himself. The very fact that universities are putting up notices threatening their students from attending have contributed to the reduced number of participants , also the civil servants being warned have also affected the Bersih attendance. It is TIME for Najib to flee the country! How long can he LAST??? Time foe Umno/BN rule to END as well!
