TTF: It’s all Barisan Nasional’s fault, forget the #UndiRosak campaign (see news item below).
In Mahathir’s books, Barisan will pull every trick in the book to ensure victory during the 14th general election (GE14). Yes, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak has already negotiated the entry of 80,000 Banglas who will be given citizenship immediately upon arrival.
Next, the Prime Minister is planning to import 10,000 Ultramen from Japan to fly to and fro voting centres to see that everything runs smoothly. The minute a Pakatun decides to ‘buat kacau’, he or she will be zapped into smoke by one of these Ultramen. So don’t play play one…
Once the Ultramen are in, we will have checkpoints all over Malaysia to ensure that the Keralans Mahathir intends to import from his ancestral village of Hangnibetuika don’t make it within ten-foot pole distances from our polling booths. Instead of getting them to sing Negaraku, we will get them to tell us the exact number of floors there are in Plaza Rakyat. Anyone who gets it right gotta go…
Yes, Barisan is quite ready to face the general election.
HULU KELANG: Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan downplayed Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s claim that Barisan Nasional(BN) was behind the #UndiRosak campaign.
The #UndiRosak movement on social media is a campaign for young voters to spoil their ballot papers.
“A lot of people are disillusioned, those who do not come out to vote are not BN supporters,” he said at an economic discourse with music and creative industry players today.
“We want people to come out and vote, but if they do not vote that is their right.”
“I don’t like it; I want them to vote for BN, but I cannot drag them out of their beds in the morning,” he said.
On Jan 23, Dr Mahathir alleged that BN supporters were behind the campaign and that it was a “reverse psychology” tactic by BN to gain votes in the upcoming GE14.
Separately, when asked about Dr Mahathir’s claim that highly educated youths were forced to be nasi lemak sellers or Uber drivers due to unemployment, Rahman said “I don’t want to reply to a melodramatic 93-year-old.”
On Jan 17, the Pakatan Harapan’s candidate for prime minister said tertiary graduates were resorting to such jobs to earn a living, adding that Malaysia is still not considered a country with high-income jobs.
