Battle of <b>Gelang Patah</b> to fulfil the Malaysian Dream of an united <b>...</b>

Posted: 08 Apr 2013 01:17 AM PDT

The battle of Gelang Patah is not just a battle for Lim Kit Siang, DAP or Pakatan Rakyat.

It is a battle for all Malaysians, the nation as well as future generations, with two portentous, unprecedented and far-reaching meaning and significance.

Firstly, the battle of Gelang Patah is to launch off a political tsunami in the 13th general elections from the south spreading all over the country, crossing the South China Sea to Sabah and Sarawak, to complete the unfinished business of the "political tsunami" of the 2008 general elections which saw the fall of Umno/Barisan Nasional in five states and the deprivation of the UMNO/BN two-thirds parliamentary majority for the first time in Malaysian history.

The 2008 "political tsunami" emanated from the north in Penang, Kedah and Kelantan coming down south to Perak (although in less than a year there was an undemocratic, illegal and unconstitutional "power grab" orchestrated by Datuk Seri Najib Razak and which await a restoration of Pakatan Rakyat Perak State government in the 13GE) and Selangor, fizzling out in Negri Sembilan and leaving the three fixed deposit states of Johore, Sabah and Sarawak virtually untouched.

However, the 2008 "political tsunami" has brought about a tectonic shift in the political landscape, as only five years ago it was completely unthinkable and impossible for anyone to hope or dream that there could be a change of federal government through the ballot box.

Now, such a democratic alternation of power, first time in the 56-year history of Malaysia, is not only thinkable, possible but even probable, which is why the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had agonised for the past four years as to when to dissolve Parliament to hold the 13GE, as for the first time in Malaysian electoral history, the incumbent UMNO/BN government could be voted out of office and replaced by Pakatan Rakyat.

However, if the "political tsunami" of 2008 has yet to reach its full capacity to climax with the first peaceful and democratic change of Federal government in the 13th general elections, Pakatan Rakyat must make a significant breakthrough in the three "fixed deposits states" of Johore, Sabah and Sarawak which have a total of 83 parliamentary seats by winning more than a third of the seats – or better still, some 40 per cent of the total number of parliamentary seats in the three states, i.e. 33 parliamentary constituencies.

Then Pakatan Rakyat will be on the way to Pakatan Rakyat to form a new Federal Government and appoint the seventh Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

However, there is also a second unique significance of the Battle of Gelang Patah – the fulfilment of the Malaysian Dream.

I have a Malaysian Dream, which I am sure, is shared by Malaysians regardless of race, religion, region or time.

The Malaysian Dream envisions a plural society where all her citizens are united as one people, rising above their ethnic, religious, cultural and linguistic differences as the common grounds binding them as one citizenship exceed the differences that divide them because of their ethnic, religious, linguistic and cultural divisions .

In this Malaysian Dream, we all owe undivided loyalty to the country, we share in one motherland and we come together as one people to develop the greatness of the country deriving from the best from the diverse races, religions and cultures which have made a home in Malaysia so that Malaysia can become one of the leading nations of the world in all fields of human endeavour.

This Malaysian Dream does not exist only today. It had existed even before the founding of Malaya and Malaysia.

Let the Battle of Gelang Patah fulfil the Malaysian Dream of a united multiracial Malaysian people rising above race which was envisioned by the great Johore Malay leader and founding UMNO President Datuk Onn Jaffar six decades ago

Although Onn was founder President of UMNO, he became increasingly dissatisfied with UMNO's racist and communalist polices, leading him in 1951 to call on UMNO to open up membership to all Malayans as well as proposing that UMNO should be renamed as the United Malayans National Organisation.

When his recommendations went unheeded, Onn Jafaar left UMNO on August 26, 1951 to form the Independence of Malaya Party (IMP).

Onn's son, Tun Hussein Onn, shared in this Malaysian Dream, although I do not know whether Onn's grandon, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, the current Home Minister, agreed with his father and grandfather in this Malaysian Dream.

Sixty-two years after Onn's call for the opening up of UMNO to non-Malay members and to change UMNO to mean United Malayans National Organisation, it is most fitting and proper that the banner of a Malaysian Dream of all visionary and patriotic Malaysians down the ages be re-hoisted to seek support and endorsement from the people of Gelang Patah, Johore and Malaysia in the 13th general elections.

Kerana Takbur, Telur Mahathir Kini Diuji <b>Di Gelang Patah</b>

Kit Siang: Saya tunggu Dr M di Gelang Patah

Pertarungan antara Barisan Nasional (BN) dan Pakatan Rakyat (PR) untuk meneruskan survival politik di Johor semakin sengit apabila veteran DAP, Lim Kit Siang hari ini mencabar Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad untuk melawannya di Gelang Patah.

"Saya yakin tiada pihak akan kata 'Tidak' .... lagipun beliau lebih berkuasa dengan berselindung 'dibalik tabir' apabila sama sibuk semasa menjadi perdana menteri selama 22 tahun lalu dengan kenyataan-kenyataan hariannya kepada pemimpin Umno dan BN," kata Kit Siang ketika berucap di Taman Molek, Johor Jaya, di sini.

Jelas Ketua Parlimen DAP itu lagi, dengan bertanding di Gelang Patah juga, kedua-dua seteru politik itu bakal membuktikan "siapa yang akan terkubur" apabila mempertaruhkan nasib mereka kepada pengundi di kawasan yang menjadi milik BN sejak sekian lama.

Menurut Kit Siang lagi, beliau berani meninggalkan kerusi Ipoh Timor yang ditandinginya dan memiliki kedudukan selesa berbanding untung nasib yang belum diketahui di Gelang Patah, serta mempersoalkan keberanian Dr Mahathir untuk melakukan tindakan sama dengan bertanding menentangnya di kerusi yang kini menjadi milik Tan Ah Heng, yang merupakan Ketua Wanita MCA Johor.

"Saya menjemput Dr Mahathir untuk bertanding di Gelang Patah dan biarkan pengundi menentukan hayat politik siapa akan berakhir, sama ada kuburkan saya atau beliau.

"Saya bersedia menyerahkan nasib kepada penduduk Gelang Patah yang memiliki 53 peratus pengundi Cina, 33 peratus Melayu, dan 12 peratus pengundi India," tegasnya.

Gelang Patah menjadi perhatian apabila Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mengumumkan Kit Siang akan bertanding di kawasan berkenaan, sekaligus menamatkan konflik perebutan kerusi berkenaan antara Pengerusi DAP Johor Dr Boo Cheng Hau, dan Pengerusi PKR Johor, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Jui Meng.

"Adakah Dr Mahathir sedia menyerahkan hayat politiknya kepada pengundi Gelang Patah,?" soal Kit Siang dalam ucapannya.

Gelang Patah yang dimenangi parti komponen BN daripada MCA menunjukkan majoriti besar apabila menewaskan calon PKR dalam Pilihan Raya 2008, 9,000 undi.

"Meninggalkan Ipoh Timor yang saya menangi dengan majoriti 21,000 undi pada PRU 2008 untuk Gelang Patah, saya diibaratkan 'menggantung diri'.

"Berdasarkan sejarah Gelang Patah yang sering memihak kepada BN, Dr Mahathir seharusnya akan menang selesa dengan majoriti besar," kata Kit Siang.

"Saya tunggu Mahathir di Gelang Patah."

Dr Mahathir malam tadi menyeru rakyat Johor untuk menamatkan karier politik Kit Siang di Gelang Patah dalam Pilihan Raya 2013 dalam rangka untuk membantu BN mempertahankan kubu kuat mereka daripada kemaraan pembangkang.

"Sekarang ni Lim Kit Siang nak datang ke Johor, mudahlah, boleh menang bila-bila jam. Orang Johor mesti ganyang dia habis-habis ... biar itu jadi hari terakhir dia dalam bidang politik," kata Dr Mahathir dihadapan ribuan orang di projek perumahan rakyat anjuran Umno Pulai di luar Hospital Pulai di sini.

Kedatangan beliau di sini selepas ceramah Pekatan Rakyat (PR) hampir setiap malam dan yakin akan menang beberapa kerusi parlimen dan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) di negeri kelahiran Umno itu.

Bekas presiden Umno dan pengerusi BN itu mengkhususkan kepada Kit Siang, musuh politiknya semenjak beliau masih perdana menteri bermula 1982, sehingga bersara pada 2003.

"Kalau dia nak bertanding di Penang, Melaka kita faham, tapi nak serang kubu Umno di Johor ini perbuatan bodoh, tak masuk akal," Dr Mahathir memperlekehkan Lim, pemimpin veteran DAP yang merupakan anak kelahiran Johor.

Beliau mengatakan pemimpin DAP itu seharusnya memikirkan persaraannya oleh kerana sudah lama berada dalam politik dan partinya sering bercakap soal perubahan.

Ada agenda tertentu bertanding <b>di Gelang Patah</b> | ISMAWeb

Posted: 20 Mar 2013 09:15 PM PDT

BANGI 20 Mac - Setiausaha Biro Politik ISMA, Ustaz Mohd Hazizi Abdul Rahman menyifatkan hasrat pemimpin DAP, Lim Kit Siang untuk bertanding di Gelang Patah, Johor adalah untuk menjayakan agenda tertentu dan bukanlah suatu perkara yang mengejutkan.

Katanya, langkah yang diambil oleh Lim Kit Siang ini adalah satu langkah yang sudah dijangka sebenarnya. Itu merupakan strategi DAP untuk menambah kerusi Parlimen bagi pihak mereka.

Beliau berkata demikian kerana pernah mendapat maklumat daripada sumber yang dipercayai yang mengatakan orang-orang Cina telah mengatur dan memindahkan pengundi mereka dari kawasan yang sedia sudah kuat seperti Ipoh Timur, Siputeh dan beberapa kawasan lain  ke kawasan yang mereka sasarkan.

"Jadi antara kawasan yang mereka sasarkan seperti yang diberitahu sumber ialah di Johor iaitu Gelang Patah dan juga Pontian.

"Maka oleh sebab itu, tindakan mereka perlu diberi perhatian terutamanya oleh orang Melayu dalam menjaga kepentingan dan hak orang Melayu sendiri dari sudut bilangan kerusi yang akan dimiliki kelak," ujarnya.

Jelas Ustaz Hazizi lagi, meskipun Gelang Patah sebelum ini dikuasai oleh MCA, tapi mereka telah mengatur langkah bagaimana untuk menang di situ sebaliknya orang Melayu masih lagi dengan politik menang sorak kampong tergadai iaitu tiada langkah strategik yang diambil seperti mana kaum Cina.

Beliau berkata demikian bagi mengulas laporan media mengenai Lim Kit Siang yang diumumkan sebagai calon DAP bagi kerusi Parlimen Gelang Patah pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU-13) dalam sambutan ulangtahun parti  DAP ke-47 di Skudai baru-baru ini.
