Politicians shouldn’t just chant slogans

In his maiden speech as the newly-appointed Prime Minister of Malaysia Dato Seri Ismail Sabri struck a conciliatory tone with his opponents by unveiling the ‘Keluarga Malaysia’ concept which is merely the ‘Bangsa Malaysia’ slogan of the opposition which was rehashed.

This slogan chanting by politicians across the divide has started to become dull and meaningless to most of us Malaysians. Don’t just chant slogans and engage in bantering rhetoric and semantics about it when there is no real, sincere intention to fulfill it.

Malaysians want a government that goes to the ground, politicians that roll up their sleeves and really do the hard work and sacrifice of raising the Quality-of-Life for all and for the inclusiveness of all races.

Right thinking Malaysians want to see transformation as advocated by the government or reformation as the mantra chanted by the opposition. Instead politicians are copying each other and hardly getting anything done.

Action speaks louder than words. The smallest deed done is better than the greatest intention, declaration or slogan. Our politicians should show their worth by proving themselves and yielding results.

As it stands now there is a great dichotomy between creed and deed. So many promises by our politicians have been broken and this has resulted in us Malaysians feeling despair and hopelessness.
