Azhar Ibrahim-The Sore Loser

.
For those who do not know who is Azhar Ibrahim, he is seen in the photo above wearing blue shirt standing quite in the middle. Next question is why do I say that he is a sore loser when he won his state seat in the last general election? The answer is very simple.
.
After the March 08 general election, which brought the then opposition (now the ruling party) into power and ousted the then ruling party (now the opposition) from power in Penang, the new Chief Minister, among others had announced the plan to replace the New Economic Plan, which was supposed to benefit the Malays with the new scheme. Azhar Ibrahim, being a sore loser together with few other UMNO leaders, which include the like of former deputy Chief Minister Abdul Rashid Abdullah, Kepala Batas Umno Youth deputy chief Reezal Merican Naina Merican, Bukit Mertajam Umno division chief Senator Musa Sheikh Fadzir, Tanjung Umno division chief Ahmad Ibnihajar and former Penanti assemblyman Abdul Jalil Abdul Majid and others protested against the remarks made by the new CM. They took their protest to the streets around Komtar. (Well, the report says that it was a street protest rather than "demonstration" as normally used to describe the street protest by the opposition). Do not be surprise, none of the UMNO big fish were arrested for illegal assembly. It shows that UMNO gib fish is above the law. Well, I described their action in organising the street protest, as they called it, as childish and do not walk the talk. They used to condemn the opposition everytime there was a street protest but when they feel the heat, they do the same.
.
.
Post general election, Azhar Ibrahim, being a sore loser had again tried very hard to be the hero (or perhaps he is the unsung hero) when he said that the state Umno will “persuade” the Federal Government to scrap all the mega projects in the state in view of the people’s clear rejection of Barisan Nasional. He was damn emotional and childish in that sense. He thought that only Barisan nasional can bring progress to the country. He forgot everything happen is with Allah's will. He was happy to see the penangites suffering for their rejection of BN. Though he said it was not a form of retaliation, it is obviously so. Only people with shallow minded like Azhar Ibrahim do not see it as a form of retaliation. Or perhaps he was suggesting that people should suffer if they reject BN. Is this what we call our leaders? Is this what we call our fighters?
.
.
If the above two (I believe there more other examples to show that Azhar Ibrahim is a sore loser) is not enough, in his debate on the motion of thanks on the Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas’s speech, he has accused the state government of embezzling the people's money of RM30million. In fact when I read the news report, I was a bit shock. Azhar Ibrahim must have something concrete for him to make the accusation. It was a serious accusation but then they have the privilege in the Dewan to say as they wish, as that whatever they said can't be used against them. But as I read further, what he meant by the "embezzle" was the state government's action after the election to write off all the fines issued by the local council prior to the general election. Perhaps Azhar Ibrahim does not know what word to use to describe the state government's action. Embezzle is when you take someone else's property and in thise case, the state government obviously did not take any single sen from the people's money. What they did was that they did not collect. Did not collect and take money is obviously two different things. If someone mentally retarded is thinking that way, I can understand, but Azhar Ibrahim? Another thing that puzzled me was that this is the first seating for the state assembly after the March 08 election, which means Azhar Ibrahim and the gang have roughly about four months to attack the present administration and I am sure that there are a lot of other things happening in Penang that they may raise in the state assembly. Unfortunately, Azhar Ibrahim, the opposition leader in Penang chose to ask really unuseful question. Only useless people ask unuseful question.
.
He said, “The state says that it is trying to save money by flying economy class and implementing austerity measures but it is actually embezzling the people’s money by not collecting the illegal hawking and parking compounds issued before March 8". I strongly advise Azhar Ibrahim to do a thorough homework before asking any question or before even open his big mouth. If what the state government did was wrong, what about discount given by the police on traffic offences? Do not forget that Si Bedol used to be a Home Minister (PDRM is under Home Minister) and that time the police used to give discount on traffic offences. So, what about that, Azhar Ibrahim? Do not ask something that may backfire you. In the end, siapa yang malu? Azhar In=brahaim dan konco-konconya.
.
Perhaps, there are nothing to complaint agaisnt the present administration. That as why Azhar Ibrahim was running out of idea and had to ask stupid question. Remember, our opposition, be it at the state level of federal level are not "working" together with the ruling party to help the people but rather they are there to criticise whatever action taken by the ruling party, whether it is good or otherwise.
