In my speech in Ijok last night, I said the by-election offers a great hope in changing the political landscape in Selangor.
Allowing MIC to retain the seat means little or nothing to the people. But a victory for Khalid/PKR is a victory for the entire Opposition and it will serve as a booster for the real battles in the impending general elections. While BN is busy paving the roads in Ijok to please the voters (with taxpayers’ money), a win in Ijok for the Opposition will augurs well for Malaysian democracy.
I also stressed on the importance of opposition unity in deciding the fate of Malaysian people. The crowd was happy to learn that top leaders from the DAP will go all out to help PKR in Ijok.( Lim Guan Eng for Saturday and Sunday, Lim Kit Siang on Tuesday. And more on the pipeline)
Anwar Ibrahim spoke about the NEP, Najib, Submarines, Sukhoi, Altantuya, Corruption, Teaching of Math and Science in mother tongue education, Freedom of religion and Abuse of power to an attentive and responsive crowds.
Azizah explains why Khalid is a much better choice than Partiban for the voters of Ijok. She promises that Khalid wil speak up fearlessly for the people when elected.
Teresa Kok told the Ijok people that if Khalid wins the seat, the BN camp will have to spend even more money to wrest back the seat from the opposition from now until the coming general elections.
Ean Yong Hian Wah urged the Ijok people to give 100% support to Khalid to send a strong message to the arrogant BN government.
Others who spoke in the dinner ceramah in Ijok last night include Dr Lee Boon Chye, Tian Chua and Azmin Ali.
