With less than a month to go until the 14th general election, Pakatan Harapan’s plan to capture Putrajaya by hook or by crook are unravelling like a cheap suite.
Pakatan Harapan tried to wrap their attempt at a coup d’etait as some noble gesture to save Malaysia. However, no one really bought into the whole ‘Save Malaysia’ idea; or at least how DAP-led Pakatan was trying to frame it.
Many people saw it as a euphemism for Tun Mahathir just wanting to save his son Mukhriz and along with that his (Tun Mahathir’s) waining legacy.
The People’s Congress did not fair any better as Malaysia’s rakyat was starting to see through the farce.
In fact, all attempts that DAP-led Pakatan before and after Tun Mahathir’s official joining of the coalition have never gained the momentum from Malaysians the wanted anticipated.
The lack of interest from Malays is especially troubling for DAP-led Pakatan as they were counting on their latest aquisitions (Amanah and PPBM) to bring about their Malay tsunami.
Amanah’s function was to pull the PAS supporters over and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) was tasked with pulling UMNO supporters.
But just like a cheap suite, there were and are problems with the material in which it is made up.
Malaysians started seeing that the coalition was not as equal as DAP-led Pakatan wanted Malaysians to believe.
Making things even worse for the DAP-led coalition was that Malaysians were beginning to see the DAP as the puppet masters and their Malay hirelings.
Lim Kit Siang and the DAP knew that by putting Malay faces out front and allow the old fellow refer to himself as the ‘Top dog’ then that would be enough to cause Malays to harken to their call.
Lim Kit Siang and the DAP also understand that it easy to get Malay to attack or sell out their own interest, if their is financial reward or positions of prestige involved.
However, not all Malays are motivated by financial gain, positions etc. That is why there were liable attacks made against PAS President Datuk Seri Hadi Awang.
Since Hadi Awang could not be bought, the only other recourse was to try and soil his reputation. Then wait for PAS members to rush over to Pakatan Harapan.
But that to started to unravel as Datuk Seri Hadi Awang has brought a lawsuit against Sarawak Report for the false claim.
The whole idea was to try and drive a wedge between PAS and UMNO as there is a fear on the part of the DAP of these to political parties working together for the good of the nation.
Fortunately, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Datuk Seri Hadi Abdul Awang are wise and see through this amaturish tactic(s) forged by the Pakatan opposition.
Pakatan’s attempt to make UMNO and PAS uncomfortably to work together for the good of Malaysia either officially or unofficially has failed. Just like the many fabrications they have made against the Prime Minister.
Pakatan has built their plans to win G14 and take Putrajaya with substandard ability and poor quality; so there is is little surprise for Malaysians to see those plans unravelling like a cheap suite!
