PKR and PSM are our friends but we have to say sorry to Hamidi because
Arul is the best candidate. Don’t let your vote split, be focus and vote
the best candidate. Never vote for BN”. This was the advise from
comrade Lee Ban Chen, a columnist and Chinese Educationist.
He was one of the speaker at a talk organised by PSM. About 150 people attended.
from DEMA, who are supporting Arul in the current election campaign
played key role in organising the talk today. Maxwell Tan, the MC said
Arul is different from other candidates and we support Arul’s campaign
because ‘he is a simple person and not power crazy, he declare asset every year and importantly he is not corrupted’.
Ying Qian of DEMA said, “we as student are supporting Arul because we
think he is a good leader and clean (never heard of any allegations) and
we must choose people with such credibility to be our leader. I have
heard lot about Arul in the social movement circle – he has high
also mentioned that unlike other political parties, PSM is the only
party that has a condition for candidate – the candidate must have done
ground work at least 5 years in the location – other political parties
should have such policies too.
strong supporter of Arul, is another backbone of our campaign. She knew
Arul since the days they fought against the incinerator project in
Broga 7 years ago. She urged everyone to support Arul the same way he
supported the community in their anti- incinerator campaign. Arul also
obtained them their land title in the last 4 years – something they
waited for, for many years.
Kua Kia Soong, another social activist spoke about about the Unified
Examination Certificate issue (private secondary education certificate).
BN government wish not to recognise the cert when countries like
Singapore and Taiwan do. These has caused many students to pursue their
higher education in other countries. Is Malaysia progressing or
regressing under BN was his question. About Arul, Dr. Kua said “Arul is a
treasure and DUN Semenyih must grab him.
Bock Tai Hee (Chinese Educationist), also spoke. Among others, he
shared his view about BN government’s intention to close down all
vernacular school and how parents are blamed of causing disunity if they
send their children to Chinese school. Right to mother tongue language
was stressed. “I waited 56 years for this moment and finally the time
has arrived and we must grab it and bring change now”
Bersih Aunty Annie was also there and she encouraged Broga people to wear read next 2 week to show support to Arul. Red means prosperity.
Lee Ban Chen, our last guest speaker spoke much about our candidate
Arul who was active in social movement since his student days in UKM.
last Arul spoke. He thanked the Broga people for their fighting spirit
and stood their ground to pressure the BN government to cancel the
incinerator project in Broga. Because of them, Semenyih is saved. Thus,
we need to continue to protect Semenyih and Broga from encroachment and
Semenyih is a buzzing town with higher level of humidity, Broga is the
opposite and anyone will prefer Broga, the cooler place. The people
there are lovely and their continuous love and support is the driving
force for movement like PSM to exist.
what Arul said today at his speech after nomination, “we do not have
millionaires with us, but we have the love and support of the grass root
people to win this election”.
