Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting, is this what you want to see? We Chinese Malaysians know that you had good intention initially to let MCA lead by younger leaders so as to make the party more energetic and progressive. Your noble intention is not wrong, but you were too eager to make the change quickly and abruptly in the party without thinking the deep implications and complicated adverse effects that might follow!
Datuk Seri, sorry to say that you had made two immense mistakes:
1. Too many young leaders without grass-root supports and contributions to MCA and the nation were chosen to contest in the General Election in 2008, contributing to one of the factors of the great defeat experienced by MCA.
2. After the 308 GE, you DID NOT keep experienced and good MCA leaders like Dr. Fong Chan Onn in the cabinet. Instead, you had chosen too many inexperienced MCA leaders in the Cabinet. By looking at their performances after holding the posts, please answer this question from your inner heart: Did you ever regret?
We do not mean to say that young leaders can’t perform well, but most often than not, experiences play paramount importance, especially in the cabinet. Dr. Fong had played his role well as the Minister of Labour and he is the BEST thus far holding this post, no one is comparable to him. That ministry post is of utmost importance to Chinese community, BUT YOU HAD CHOSEN TO DROP HIM FROM THE CABINET!!! NOW, WHAT HAS HAPPENED???
It is indisputable to say that the present MCA tremor and great crisis had been caused by power struggling between the experienced leaders with strong grass-root support and the younger leaders who are too eager to fight their way up by using dirty tactics!
Datuk Seri, You may think that it is inappropriate for you to utter any comment on the present MCA plight, but are you willing to see your beloved party in such a precarious situation now? Please say something Datuk Seri!
