Is the BN in a scurry or would there be a tectonic shift in Hulu Selangor?
Tengku Razaleigh predicted grave portent for BN in Hulu Selangor and bad omen. He said majority of Malays wouldn't vote for BN candidate.
In wide contrast to Razaleigh's prophecy other political pundits including Malaysian Insider which had never had kind words for Najib, have taken different view of the probable outcome of the Hulu Selangor by-election.The groundswell seems to be shifting in favour of the BN, at least among Malays and Indians.
By rights, the BN candidate for Hulu Selangor should be a Malay. The fielding of an Indian candidate should be seen as a sacrifice by UMNO, in spite of it being a Malay majority area.PKR, more likely, would field a Malay candidate.
Lim Kit Siang should put his money where his mouth is.Who is Malaysian first in deeds and who is Malaysian first in lip service.He can only talk and ridicule 1 Malaysia. What has he done? He has done more to divide the races and heightened racial sentiments.At least, Najib practises what he preaches.
Malays formed over 50% of voters in the area while Indians comprises less than 20%.The Chinese votes at 26% will be comfortably Pakatan's main trust of support.
The constituents are fed up with all talk and no action.
