I as a Malaysian living in Malaysia continue to be saddened by the uncivilized views of certain people in Malaysia when I learned that the staff of Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) had objected to to Madam Loh Siew Moi being appointed as Acting General Manager of PKNS because she is not a Malay, despite the fact that she has been with PKNS for about 30 years and she is also well-qualified for the top job.
What on earth is happening? As far as we all knew, PKNS is a state economic development corporation charged with promoting and developing Selangor’s economy and manufacturing sector. So what has it got to do with race? Furthermore, the people of Selangor comprises all races and the needs of races must be taken into account.
I would like to remind the PKNS staff to put the interest of the state and the people of Selangor above your selfish, racist reasons that Madam Loh did not have the ability to communicate with all staff and associations or to communicate with different levels of personnel. Is there a rule in PKNS or the Selangor state constitution saying that the general manager must be a Malay or bumiputra? PKNS is a state economic development corporation, why cordoned to such politically motivated racist nature of act?
Are these PKNS staff being instigated by Umno leaders who wanted to see the failure of Selangor’s continuous development implementation?
To the Selangor Mentri Besar, please stand firm against these racist cowards! Do what is right and good for the betterment of the state economy and infrastructure. If these PKNS staff cannot accept Madam Loh despite her outstanding credentials, then resign. PKNS is better off without such uncivilized people.
