Bumi quotas set to go, says Najib
The above article appeared in today’s Malaysiakini Portal News and I believe many Malaysian would be please to know that Malaysian Government after so many years realized the need to do away with the quota.
If PM is going to walk the talk, it will be a blessing to Malaysia and at the same time no one would have the excuse of not working closely with all races to bring betterment in Malaysia. The proposal shows the mutuality of political leaders and the new political era in Malaysia.
However, some would worry that PM might give in to extremist pressure and views both inside and outside of UMNO making the proposal nothing but pie-in-the-sky.
Today’s Sin Chew reported that our Prime Minister clarified that he didn’t mean to remove 30% BUMI quota. That means there is no progressive step taken by Prime Minister and we are back to square one.
