PRICE HIKE PROTEST: Is Umno so WEAK or is Zahid just STUPID?

PRICE HIKE PROTEST: Is Umno so WEAK or is Zahid just STUPID?
How a rally to protest price hike at Dataran Merdeka this coming December 31 have casted so much terror to UMNO-BN to the extent of being accused as an attempt to topple the government?
Is UMNO that weak?
Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in a statement to MCA daily The Star, had warned the organisers of the New Year’s eve rally to cancel their plans, and continued playing the drama of calling the demonstration as an attempt to topple the government.
Zahid also stressed that there would be “no concessions from authorities” on the event and urged the opposition to stop the “negative culture” of demonstrating.
“The Home Ministry will never allow a subversive political culture created by the opposition to continue spreading.
“Be a responsible opposition and do not try to take advantage of the situation,” the UMNO vice president was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, Malaysian Consultative Council for Islamic Organization president Azmi Abdul Hamid said it was illogical to accuse the people who want to protest against price hikes of attempting to overthrow the government.
“The rally aimed to voice out the people’s demands to the government to take action against rising cost of living should not be viewed wrongly.
We would like to remind the government if they continue with their denial syndrome on price hikes, and the government insists that the hikes are reasonable and cannot be avoided, then the people will only see them as irresponsible,” said Azmi in a statement to Harakahdaily.
Azmi said rising cost of living has affected more than 80 percent of the population, and as a responsible and ‘People’s first’ government, BN should take action to counter the economic situation and respect the people’s right to demonstrate to voice their grouses. - Harakahdaily
