Mudhalvan (CM) in Selangor
Mudhalvan, a movie that was a great mega hit for Indians. They liked the character Arjun cast in the movie. A chief minister who made extreme changes in his ruling state in India. Now looking at the way YB Azmin Ali is moving, it recalls back the movie. Especially his dressing. A humble Mentri Besar. Azmin Ali caught everyone’s attention especially Indian’s in Selangor. A doubt rose to all, will Azmin revenge against the ex MB or being purely a Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s puppet?
Azmin is moving his cards very swiftly in his own pace or we can say, he has is own style? This 10 days, Azmin is very much busy in carrying his task as a mentri besar. So far Azmin has not revealed any of his plans or blueprint in developing the state. It seems Azmin is doing a balance job without siding anybody.
His first move was to review the increase of the menteri besar, executive councillors, assembly speaker and deputy speaker’s allowances. Azmin is also looking into the water agreement deal with the federal government and demanded a full disclosure of the deal.
On top of it Azmin is working on the fields himself which really giving a good impression on him. There are a few groups waiting for a space for him to mislead but it is still early to judge him. Lets hear what has the public says about him:
“I am not very sure, but I feel this is the first time I’m seeing a mentri besar going directly to the public and looking into the issues himself. He is doing a great job. Sure we will support him if he can perform,” says Raja from Sri Muda, Shah Alam.
“We heard that he visited the open burning site. I got a shock. Mentri besar turun padang? I hope he uses the same method in order to solve many other problem the rakyat facing in Selangor,” said Anan, Kapar.
“Azmin, very interesting character. Never thought Azmin will transform in such away. I am very imperessed,” Haji Hassan.
“I”m in Selangor since I was born. I witnessed many MB’s. There were good ones and also the partially okay one’s. Azmin has started well. Just hope he is not like Coca-Cola, you know what I mean,” says Steven.
“This is all drama. We know very well that Pakatan Rakyat is good for that. This is just for a short term. We are going to see another spin in and turn-over in Selangor Government,” said Shahul from Meru.
“We don’t think Azmin is a puppet to Anwar. But at the other hand I feel there is no harm in Azmin seeking for Anwar’s advice. We all know that Anwar was Azmin’s ex boss and also a senior to him. So I don’t see there issue there,” says Pathmanaban, form Tengku Kelana.
He also added, “My question here, what has our new MB has for Indians in Selangor? We are curious to know that.”
“Can MB advice all his government staff to be polite when dealing with the public. This will be my only request to our new MB,”requested Shamini Kumaravel.
Rakyat Selangor has a big hope that our MB can deliver the best. Our 10 days old MB has a big responsibility to carry. Despite of sorting old and current issues, he has to look into new matters and also matters that matter to Indians.
