DAP National Deputy Chairman and MP for Kepong Dr Tan Seng Giaw calls on the Central Government to show leadership by example as part of the campaign to inculcate the values of Rukun Negara.
On 21.9.2010 Dr Tan notices that Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Rais Yatim announced the day before his intention to carry out widespread campaigns to spread the values of Rukun Negara which includes belief in God, king and country, politeness, the rule of law and national unity.
It is necessary to inculcate universal values continuously, starting from home and school. As Raise believes that Malaysians between the age of 20 to 40 are not knowledgeable about Rukun Negara, he intends to launch a big campaign to disseminate the principles of Rukun Negara. We hope that he does it well, making good use of the public fund.
One important factor in the above-stated values is leadership by example in all fields. For example, in economy the news of Port Klang Free Zone scandal, and the huge sum involved in Sime Darby, Khazanah and Pos Malaysia management have caused much concerned about the lack of these values.
The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has repeatedly talked about national unity and the need to avoid sensitive issues and to uphold integrity. He would have to lead by example like indicating that he is prepared to make important decision and to act in the interest of integrity and unity irrespective of race, religion and party.
We hope Rais can include leadership by example in his Rukun Negara campaign. This will show that he is serious.
Dr Tan Seng Giaw
