Chi­nese pa­tri­otic, want M’sia to de­velop rapidly — Liow

The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

KUALA LUMPUR: MCA pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the Chi­nese com­mu­nity had high hopes of see­ing Malaysia de­velop more rapidly and con­tinue to pros­per.

He said like the other com­mu­ni­ties, the Chi­nese want po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity and safety in the coun­try to be as­sured as well as an ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient gov­ern­ment ad­min­is­tra­tive sys­tem so that Malaysia can con­tinue to de­velop in the fu­ture.

“Af­ter the last gen­eral elec­tion, some peo­ple asked – what more do the Chi­nese want?

“The Chi­nese com­mu­nity works hard and has con­trib­uted like all races to en­sure the coun­try is sta­ble and pro­gres­sive, so they must be re­spected, recog­nised and ap­pre­ci­ated be­cause they too are pa­tri­otic to the na­tion,” he said at a pa­tri­otic gath­er­ing of the Chi­nese com­mu­nity held at the Pu­tra World Trade Cen­tre yes­ter­day.

Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Tun Razak, MCA deputy pres­i­dent Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong as well as other lead­ers of the Chi­nese com­mu­nity were among the 16,000 peo­ple who at­tended the gath­er­ing or­gan­ised by the MCA.

Liow, who is also Trans­port Min­is­ter, said the Chi­nese com­mu­nity never asked for any­thing more than what was right, but their feel­ings should also be con­sid­ered. - Ber­nama
