Letís usher in the Lunar New Year with hope for a peaceful, stable and yet prosperous year.


Chinese New Year Message
By Chow Kon Yeow

(Penang, Friday):


Letís usher in the Lunar New Year with hope for a peaceful, stable and yet prosperous year.

There were no major natural disasters last year but many Malaysians were either killed violently in cold bloodedly crimes or lost their lives in road accidents.

Pak Lah has promised us a clean government with improved and efficient delivery system. He also wanted to hear the truth from the people.

But has he delivered on his promises so far? A little bit, maybe.

The general impression is the PM does not have enough support to carry through his reform pledge.

But we should not give up on his yet, hopefully this new year will give him strength to do what is good for the country.

Year 2006 is an important one as the Ninth Malaysia Plan will be launched in April.

Pak Lah has expressed that there would be a fairer distribution of the nationís wealth.

To achieve this objective, politics based on fair and just principles must be put in place.

The nationís wealth can be distributed justly without having to be pegged on racial or religious considerations.

Maybe in the year of the Dog, the government can be ďracial-blindĒ so that our progress towards a developed nation by 2020 would not be hindered by race-based policies.

Wishing Gong Xi Gong Xi for a peaceful and progressive year ahead.
