Minister Palanivel, you’re such a shame!

I’d always believe that it is by sheer luck and not so much of intellectual capability that some people became ministers in Malaysia. Alas, these are the rotten apples that made former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir and opposition leaders such as Lim Kit Siang to label the current cabinet as “half past six” and “a bunch of clowns”. One such person that certainly fits into this category is the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment, Datuk Seri G. Palanivel.

What a big joke and shame! A screenshot from the Parliament Hansard.
It is a big shame and insult to the current Sultan of Pahang that Minister Palanivel, a Member of Parliament for Cameron Highlands, under the state of Pahang do not remember His Highness’s name. During the question and answer sessions in Parliament of 23rd March, Palanivel had to be corrected that the current Sultan of Pahang is Sultan Ahmad Shah and not Sultan Abu Bakar. How can a MP and a minister get the name of the ruler of the state where his constituency is located wrongly unless this minister is totally unfit to be a minister at all!

Worse of all, this is also a minister who can’t even speak a proper sentence of the national language in the Parliament! Read the hansard from the Parliament and you’ll be mistaken that you are reading something produced by primary one student! Such is the standard of Malaysia’s minister. What a shame!

It was just a year ago that some Malay right wings NGOs asked for those who are not fluent in Bahasa Malaysia to be stripped of their citizenship. So, today, I am asking these NGOs, what do they have to say of Palanivel’s proficiency in Bahasa Malaysia? Should he be stripped of his citizenship? 

For goodness sake, I will urge Minister Palanivel to resign from his post with grace so that someone more capable can take over his place. Perhaps, it should be made mandatory for Ministers and Deputy Ministers to undergo a special Bahasa Malaysia, IQ and EQ test before being appointed to ensure that our country is governed by talented people and not a bunch of jokers.
