Days ago people had been sharing the picture of Malaysia’s Father of Modernisation, Tun Dr Mahathir alongside what had he done to our country. It was a long list and I have to say that in 22 years of ruling Malaysia, he had shown the obvious results: Lanskap Malaysia yang Maju

Well, here’s an interesting part for us to ponder upon dear Malaysians. When he was the PM people would constantly say that he is corrupt and gila kuasa kind of guy. Numerous corruption accusations were mentioned by the people.
But, why, why now? why are we only starting to list down his past achievements now when in fact most didn’t agree with him when the KLCC, Putrajaya and Langkawi were proposed at all let alone the LRTs and Monorail tht time. I mean people are trying to say Najib isn’t doing his job as well as Mahathir but the thing is Mahathir did that in 22 years whilst Najib had just entered his 7th year in the office.
Plus the people who are saying that Mahathir is the best are those of the new generation, those who only learn to know the term Perdana Menteri in 2003 when Mahathir stepped down. They don’t know the struggle of the country when Mahathir was working so hard.
What if I tell you: when Mahathir was building Putrajaya, the previous generations are having the same thing as we are now namely the economic situation, national debt, corruption scandals etc.
What if I tell you: Mahathir built things such as public transport network and transnational highways but Najib is doing the same now.
- Extension of LRTs Kelana Jaya Line and Sri Petaling Line
- Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), allow me to say, Singapore doesn’t have this kind of transport.
- Soon the LRT3 and MRT.
- Lebuhraya Pantai Timur (LPT) and soon LPT2
- Lebuhraya Pantai Barat (In construction)
What if I tell you: Bandar Malaysia is the next Putrajaya, Bukit Jalil Sports Complex will evolved into Bukit Jalil Sports City and there will be another significant tower in the future that will leave KLCC on the ground? What if I told you after a few years Malaysia’s infrastructure evolves significantly?
What if I tell you: When najib dies and god knows who’s the next PM takes over and people aren’t happy with his/ possibly her job then they list down Najib’s Achievements?
What I am trying to say is not Najib is better than Mahathir or Najib will be better than Mahathir let alone what Mahathir had done wasn’t enough.
What I am trying to say here is that our people loves to point out the achievement after the achiever’s time has gone and then go to an easy conclusion like
Najib isn’t as good as Mahathir hence vote for the Opposition
It’s all stucked in a time loop. i heard people would say Mahathir punya corrupt pun ada lah jugak KLCC, now the scariest fact: Najib’s projects are already showing progress.
Will people say the same next? Corruption, Scandals, tapi ada lah jugak MRT siap, LPT settle.
In the end it’s just the matter of time that people’s eyes would be closed towards how corrupt would a person be. ini mcm pukul budak 8 tahun esok bg dia iPad. wht would the kid say?
Kalau nak ukur achievement, semua boleh achieve tak kira lah siapa kau, Mahathir atau Najib, kemampuan itu tetap ada, Negara tetap ada sesuatu utk rakyat. tapi kita sebagai rakyat kena sedar, statement
Corruption, Scandals, tapi ada lah jugak MRT siap, LPT settle.
Mahathir punya corrupt pun ada lah jugak KLCC
cuma lah satu alasan untuk menghalalkan skandal2 dan ketidak tulusan manusia dengan hanya menutup mata dengan projects.
Kita sebagai rakyat malaysia kena pandai tarik rambut dalam tepung, kena bijak, kena hati2, rambut dapat, tepung x sepah. infrastruktur ada, kerajaan pun bersih. Insyallah.
In conclusion hujah yng panjang2 list tu bukan x betul tapi x padu, smash x tajam lah katakan. kalau nak ckp psl list, tk lama lagi, najib will have his own list. haha tggu je.
DISCLAIMER: This post does not reflect that Najib reign is flawless (eg: scandal, staggering amount of debt, high cost of living, insignificant increment in wages) but this post is meant to open our eyes about the fact that we cannot directly compare Mahathir’s and Najib’s premiership. Because the people’s wants and needs had change and we live in 2 different time.
Contoh kalau nak compare dr segi bangunan Najib pun ada. maka kalau nak compare sekalipun bukan dengan cara compare bangunan secara terus.
