Replacing SST Which Earns The Federal Government RM 16.4 Billion Annually With The 6% GST Which Will Earn Double At RM32 Billion Annually.
Malaysians want a brighter future for our children that they be given equal opportunities, treated with dignity and live a more prosperous and peaceful lives that were denied to their parents. Malaysians do not want to be divided and discriminated between Malays and non-Malays, Muslims and non-Muslims or PR and non-PR states.
Hindus also feel marginalised when their religious sensitivities are trampled upon in schools, temples torn down and appeals to boycott the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) next month in Colombo on human rights grounds in solidarity with the tens of thousands of Tamils massacred by the Sri Lankan government, not respected.
Instead of using fear and hate to cover up corruption and abuse of power, Malaysians want to be united around values of justice, freedom, democracy, integrity and truth. We want our problems of burgeoning national debt and deficit to be addressed and not impose new taxes or remove subsidies to the poor without removing subsidies for the rich.
