TJ: (Yang penting sahaja)
Pencapaian bumiputra setakat 19% sahaja berbanding sasaran 30% sejak
DEB dilancarkan pada 1970.
Pada 1970, melayu memegang 2.4%, bukan melayu 34.3% dan asing 63.3%.
Sasaran DEB ialah 30:40:30.
Para penganalisa politik berpendapat pucuk pemimpin negara ini masih
belum bersedia untuk mengorbankan 'lembu suci' (kroniputra keparat) .
Masalah sebenar ialah kerana pemuda umno sendiri tidak dapat
berfungsi. Ia hanya menjadi tukang sorak dan tukang ampu. Hasilnya
lembu tua jantan dan betina semakin liar dan rakus kerana pemuda umno
khususnya dan ahli umno amnya tidak sanggup menyebelih binatang-binatang
ini kerana terlalu hormat bak sami hindu penjaga lembu. Semuanya
dianggap suci sampai najis busuk pun ditelan dan dihidu.
Yang menarik mereka menyentuh bab pendidikkan. Malangnya hari ini
kos untuk menyara anak belajar ke institusi pengajian tinggi semakin
meningkat. Apabila pendidikkan dijadikan satu perniagaan yang lumayan,
ia akan melahirkan dua kelompok masyarakat yang tinggi jurang perbedaan.
Hasilnya lahirlah masyarakat yang 'haram' menjadi darah-daging mereka.
Siapakah yang berlumba haram jika anak-anak melayu juga. Maka
lahirlah ramai anak 'haram' hasil hubungan secara haram. Bayi-bayi ini
dibuang macam anak patung permainan - baik di tepi jalan, mahupun ke
dalam kolam. Yang jelas halal dan haram sudah tiada lagi perbedaan
di mata rakyat yang ternoda apabila gagalnya sistem pendidikkan.
Cuba bayangkan mengapa kerajaan beria-ria menukar pelbagai istilah yang
haram supaya menjadi 'lunak dan manis'. Kini sudah ada perkataan
'konsert amal' dan 'konsert derma'.
Pendekkata, semua dosa besar dah jadi kesalahan biasa dek lunaknya

Malays "still far from achieving 30% equity'
A senior Umno leader says the achievement by bumiputras in the economy
stands at only 19 per cent and a long term approach is needed
KUALA LUMPUR -- A senior Umno leader yesterday said that it was still a
long way to go before the Malays and the other bumiputra communities could
achieve the 30 per cent equity of the country's economy.
Datuk Mustapa Mohamed, who is Umno Information head, said that a long term
approach was required to help the community achieve its targets.
Bernama quoted him as saying that, to date, bumiputras' achievement in the
economic sector stood at only 19.8 per cent.
""To solve this problem, there should be focus on basic education right
from primary schools,'' he said.
He was speaking to reporters after officiating the discussion on ""Towards
Achievement of 30 per cent Bumiputra Equity'' organised by the Umno Youth
Academy here yesterday.
His views were supported by the academy's chief operating officer Dr Zambry
Abdul Kadir, who is also Umno Youth executive council member.
Dr Zambry said that the manner in which the bumiputra equity was
distributed should be re-examined.
He felt that if the implementation of a good policy was not well carried
out, it might not have the effect that it should have.
As such, the Umno Youth would monitor the implementation of this policy, Dr
He also said that the Umno Youth, which now comprises various professional
groups, is serious in achieving the party's objectives.
""We are now action-oriented and affirmative and reducing rhetoric,'' he
Touching on the 30 percent equity, he said that apart from education,
poverty also played a part where the Malays are still the hard core poor.
Another factor is bumiputras' attitude.
Dr Zambry said this should be changed in order to face globalisation.
Last week, Utusan Malaysia reported that the government would renew its
bumiputra policy -- the affirmative action programme to help Malays and
other indigenous groups -- for another 10 years when the second plan
expires later this year.
The Malay daily quoted unnamed sources as saying that the government will
continue to accord special treatment to the Malays and other bumiputras
under the fresh plan.
Malaysia implemented the New Economic Plan (NEP) in 1970 following the
racial riots on May 13, 1969.
The NEP had sought to redress the wealth imbalance in the country within 20
In 1970, Malays held just 2.4 per cent of the corporate wealth while
non-Malays had 34.3 per cent, and foreigners, 63.3 per cent.
The aim has been to achieve a more equitable 30-40-30 breakdown.
In 1990, the government renewed the bumiputra policy for another 10 years
and called it the National Development Policy.
Although bumiputra ownership in the economy has grown tremendously over the
years, it has yet to hit the 30 per cent mark.
The latest move to extend the bumiputra policy did not come as a surprise
as the government has sought feedback from various quarters earlier this
year under the second National Economic Consultative Committee (NECC).
Political analysts have said font color="#cc0000">the country is not ready to remove the sacred cow.
In the recent economic crisis, many bumiputra businessmen and other Malays
who had benefited from the NEP were badly hit.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the Malaysian government
would rebuild their wealth after currency speculators erased 30 years of
But he also said later that the government would withdraw some of the
privileges enjoyed by bumiputras, such as in share issues, education, the
award of government contracts and special mutual funds, once the 30 per
cent target was achieved.
