12th MP a letdown, stop destroying our unity- Pradip

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1: United Malaysian Hindu Voice (UMHV) advisor for global advocacy, Datuk Pradip Kumar Kukreja has described the 12th Malaysia Plan as a letdown for its lack of allocation for the minorities.

“The government has failed to meet its objectives after 11 prior plans, the 12th Malaysia Plan, which intends to do so once again.

“The elites have ‘trapped’ us in this notion, and we’re all hunting for a needle in a haystack to discover what’s left for the impoverished minorities, Sabahans, Sarawakians, and worthy poor Malays,” he told The Hindu Press.

“Rather of finding genuine, legitimate answers to the issues faced by regular, hardworking Malaysians, the governing elite have suggested yet another controversial proposal, this time to steal 51% of the country’s wealth, enterprise, and resilience through sweat and blood through the decades,”

“How does grabbing this hard-earned equity from minorities help the economically poor Malays who have been arguably misled and mismanaged for decades by the governing elites?” he asked.

He added that: “Indeed, the term “Bumiputera” is undoubtedly a devious and malicious ploy that has divided Malaysians for decades, while the elites use it to enrich themselves.

“Is this the true meaning of the wonderful notion of ‘Keluarga Malaysia,’ or is it just a continuation of the scam we’ve been exposed to?” Pradip asked further.

“I believe it is time for us Malaysians to come together and end this insanity that is destroying our national unity, and to say no to malaysia plans,” he added.

On Monday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob tabled a new five-year economic plan, boosting infrastructure spending and committing to a carbon tax under climate change goals as the country looks to chart its way out of a pandemic-induced slump.

Launching the 12th Malaysia Plan in Parliament, Ismail said the country’s financial position was expected to improve in 2023, with the economy targeted to grow 4.5%-5.5% per annum in the next five years.
