If only through the intervention of the wife of Prime Minister that a commonly known poverty case can be swiftly settled, I doubt very much on the capability, reliability, and competency of our civil service.
The head of the civil service must be made to be responsible for a poor performance like this.
I hope that this incident is only an isolated case which many said otherwise. If PM Najib really wanted to save the nation and BN from being disliked by its own people, he must put his feet down on the mismanagement or mis-administration on the part of the civil service.
Sometimes it may be unfair to single out the civil service for poor performance of the government, but for being a very important part of the government, they must upheld their charter and responsibility whom the people entrusted to administrate and govern.
Maybe the civil servants and the elected YBs should be continuously undergoing some sort of patriotic camp to get their mindset and spirit in the right track. They should know that their performance matters in our nation survival in the world, and they must not be complacent and become unrealistic.
But, who dares to work on them as we all know that they are so powerful now? They can only be made to be reasonable powerful by the party who made them extremely powerful. They should be powerful in their good administration and not powerful in slowing down the aspiration of the people.
From indecisiveness to now welcoming the foreign workers, the government move to legalize the foreigners is laudable but what about the social and security aspects which we are known to be very weak as compared to the developed countries, just take for example in Sabah, the presence of large numbers of illegal immigrants with its social and cultural impacts on our society, notably on medical services and policing; has all the strong basis for our doubts and concerns.
With or without legalization, the capability and competency of our authority, and our capacity, to take on 4 millions of foreigners in a total population of 28 millions, is really no easy task, and I really have doubts that we could handle it without problems.
As if our problems not enough, our human resources under the ever controversial education system has not been producing the right types of workers especially on their competency in work; how are we going to depend on these new generation of workers to sustain the economy, or improve the economy?
The various transformations will not work if we don't have the good quality and competent human resources, and that we simply don't have them in the country, they have all gone for greener pastures elsewhere, and it's not easy to attract them back once migrated.
Despite all that, do we have a better choice? Would higher pay will salvage the situation?
I think We are simply stuck in a dilemma, and the problem is largely of our governance which I think will be the only solution to overcome all the various issues arising from the efforts to resolve the country's woes.
This is an increasingly concern agenda from most people nowadays, and yet, our ministry of Science Technology and innovation has not been addressing this fear amicably.
The erection of lots of transmitting towers on top of most rooftops for example has been suspicious for its effects on human living or working near offices around the towers.
What about the Wi-Fi wireless radio signals in the office as well as houses? What about the wiMax radio signal waves? What about the Infra red signal and the bluetooth radio waves?
The cell phone radio waves are everywhere today, we seem to have completely submerged under the sea of radio bombardment, and therefore rightly said that we have been cooking by them frequently, and if excessively exposed, may have been a key causes of diseases like brain cancer.
Our universities should lead in this study of radiation to the people, and should have done research on this topic in order to advise the public of their findings to minimise the direct effects on the people living with the electromagnetic wave environment.
Why are we always have to passively wait for other countries to do the research and investigation while we have most of the academicians doing hardly anything significance to the society and in their field of study? Who knows that by going for the serious effort in studying on this topic, maybe Malaysian could be the one in the world to come out with some innovations on overcoming the impact of the pollution caused by electromagnetic radiation?
