CONGRATULATIONS, Deputy Minister of Education. You have had done a very CORRECT and wise move: that is urging MCA to have only one EGM (which was finally announced yesterday afternoon) and granting the MCA Youth members freedom to attend any talks they like to go. Yes, this is a democratic world; NO one has the right to decide for the others! You know very well that the MCA Youths are not the ones to be controlled by using irrational and illogical instructions. Take for instance, during the contest of the top post in MCA Youth years back, the youths did not follow the wish and blessing of all the MCA Youth state chairmen. They despised the blessing from the top liners of MCA main body and took their firm stand to support the contentious, argumentative and disputatious person. Subsequently, tremor happened in MCA Youth later. Our beloved Deputy Minister of Education, you had made a very wise move now, unlike the one from Subang Jaya. He had made himself a clown! How dared he ask the central representatives to withdraw the petition forms which had been signed and witnessed by qualified lawyers?
Another mockery happened in Kedah two days ago. 5 out of 15 Division chairmen attended a press conference to support the MCA president. The state chairman declared that Kedah fully supports (100 % ?) the MCA chief. What an irony is this? Doesn’t he know simple Mathematics? Is one third a majority? Is one third equivalent to 100 %? This is an absurd concept of Mathematics and anthropology one has ever heard of. Or is this a new discovery or finding in Mathematics that we Kampong Folks are outdated? Since you are a Deputy Minister of Education, I suggest that you recommend a good Mathematics teacher for him!!!
For the last couple of weeks, we have noticed that you have at least, I dare not use the word finally because you may recur your mistakes intentionally or unintentionally, tried to refrain from attending the road shows organized by the chief. You have made a very wise move. I iterate, your immediate boss is our beloved PM, and your bosses at large are the Rakyat of Malaysia!
You are still very young and if we are not mistaken, you are in the early 40s. You still have a very long way to go. You have a very bright political arena. It is full of blessings and joys. Please remember all these blessings are from the Rakyat and from your sifu Long PT in JB, not just from your subordinates or you blind disciples! He is a gentle and a very nice person. He never used dirty tactics to maliciously dismay and damage the image of his rivals. We strongly believe that you were with him for long, as such, you would have some how inherited the good practices from him! Keep it up! Please bear in mind, Rakyat are the main bosses!!!
You are a Deputy Minister of Education. You are sure to know and able to apprehend fully the KPIs set by our beloved PM, all the GOs, Rules & Regulations that govern all civil servants and cabinet members, apart from the DOs and DON’Ts, much more than other MCA Ministers and Deputy Ministers! You know very well that there are 3 categories of Corruption being defined in the Anti-Corruption Acts:
1. Corruption of Money / Monetary Gain - receiving rewards or anything similar or letting family members or close relatives having monetary gains in approving projects or giving preferences etc.
2. Corruption of Power - Abusing the power by giving projects or giving preferences to any one having relations or allowing the facilities or premises to be used for personal or any close relation's personal interest, demoting or expelling subordinates for personal gain / interest, promoting subordinates based on personal judgment or aiming to gain support etc.
3. Corruption of Time - late to work, leave working place early, use the official time for personal interest, not related to core work etc.
Consequently, it is impossible for you to support a person who openly abuses power and involves in wrong acts like conflict of interest, otherwise how are you going to face other educators and students? IT IS INDISPUTABLE THAT CORRUPTION IS A MORE NOXIOUS ACT THAN SEX SCANDAL!!!!!
Whether you like it or not, you have nothing else to say other than talking about EDUCATION, LEARNING, DELEARNING & RELEARNING, and TRAINING, DETRAINING & RETRAINING. So you may have to play the role as sifu in enabling your counterparts in MCA to have satisfactory grasping of these requirements set by our beloved PM!!!!
What the Rakyat want from the party is merely a small request: be free from corruptions (any form) and refrain from indulging in personal or party activities which do not bring benefit to Malaysians especially during this moment the Board of Governors of the Chinese primary schools are very agonized over the issue of proven 80 % fund in the LPS account before they can apply for buying land or build premises for school. On top of that, many Chinese-based primary and secondary schools are facing great difficulties in physical conditions and lack of fund to settle school utility bills! Please don’t forget, the issue of tendering school canteen is at the corner.
Look at the picture below, an extract from the front page of a local Chinese newspaper:
You did a good job to help the SJKC which you had spent 6 years of primary school life by giving a handsome sum some time last year. I am sure your family, your teachers (especially those from the Chinese primary school in the country side), your schoolmates and your village folks will feel extremely proud of you forever: the First Chinese Deputy Minister (an excellent and performing deputy minister NOT a non-performing deputy minister) produced by the village and the school! You had made those Chinese primary school teachers honoured. Their hardship of travelling from the town to a remote place to teach in a very small Chinese primary school had been greatly rewarded, not monetarily, but in the reward as the school has had produced a Deputy Minister of Education. This is the GREATEST achievement thus far attained by the school. We believe that the school, teachers, country folks are looking eagerly forward to the advent of a Minister to the school in near future, and that is you, Dr. Wee! Congratulations again, you had created an excellent RECORD in the village and the school for the younger generations to follow! You need to help them to stand upright in front of every one and be proud of you forever! Your good name will remain as a legacy in the village and the school forever!
We believe your road is still very long and you have a long way to go in the political arena. You can do much better than at present before you go further up in MCA! Prove yourself to be named as the BEST Deputy Minister of Education, thus bringing greatest pride and honour to your beloved primary school and your home town!
The Rakyat also want and have the right to know your KPIs: How many Chinese-based, Tamil and mission schools have you visited? How many of the deeply engrain Chinese school issues have you settled once and for all? We are looking forward to have a selfless and excellent Deputy Minister for the time being and a superb minister in near future!!!!!
May Buddha always be with you, blessing your conscientious contributions to the Rakyat and the nation!
