Kit Siang has apologized in a two-paragraph statement to the Perak Sultan and Regent.
This shows the new state-level ruling parties do listen to their bosses. They may make mistake but they are willing to correct it when the public show displeasure.
Kudos to Kit Siang and DAP for the change in stand.
Kudos to all Malaysians who responded to the development. With smart bosses, Malaysia will have good servants.
My hope now is that both the Selangor palace and Selangor new ruling coalition will also heed public opinion in the appointment of the state’s deputy chief executive.
It is sad that the Selangor Sultan’s private secretary Datuk Lela Bakti has said Selangor deputy MB should be a Malay too. I hope that was only his personal opinion.
Malay royalties have long evolved from the guardian of Malays to guardian of all Malaysians within their states.
Perak Sultan’s appointment of the first Indian deputy MB shows his sharp understanding and appreciation of the new political reality and signals all his subjects that there will be more political inclusion in Perak.
As a Perakian, may I proudly sing the state anthem: “Dilanjutkan Allah Usianya Sultan…”
p/s: does anyone have the Perak anthem in digital format? I will truly appreciate it.
