"Potong Jari saya kalau PAS Kelantan boleh" kata Muhyiddin

Kita mungkin biasa mengunakan perkataan atau ayat ‘ Potong jari saya kalau engkau boleh’ ini sebagai menunjukkan yang kita tidak langsung yakin akan kebolehan pihak lawan.

Tetapi bagaiman pula jika perkataan atau ayat tersebut di gunakan oleh seorang pemimpin tertinggi kerajaan yang dihormati?

Apa perspektif kita terhadap beliau? Adakah kita masih boleh mengormati seorang pemimpin yang melafazkan ayat tersebut? Yang menggambarkan seolah-olah beliau seorang Yakuza.

Adakah ini contoh yang baik yang ditunjukkan oleh seorang Pemimpin kepada rakyat terutamanya kanak-kanak?

Potong jari saya kalau kerajaan negeri Kelantan yang diterajui oleh PAS boleh mengatasi Kerajaan Barisan Nasional dalam menyediakan dana untuk pembangunan, itu kata-kata yang telah dilafazkan oleh Timbalan Perdana Menteri Malaysia, Muhyiddin Yassin atau Mat Sembab.

Adakah wajar seorang Timbalan Perdana Menteri berkata demikian?

Kata-kata yang mengandungi makna yang tidak sihat yang hanya digunakan oleh Yakuza iaitu gangster di Jepun ulas Lim Guan Eng.

Guan Eng scoffs at DPM’s ‘cut finger’ remark

By Syed Jaymal Zahiid

KUALA LUMPUR, April 5 — Penang DAP Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng took a swipe at the Deputy Prime Minister today over his “cut finger” remark which the latter likened to “Yakuza” behaviour.

Lim said Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was sending a negative message to the young when the DPM said he would “cut his finger” if the PAS-led Kelantan government could allocate more development funds for the state than the Barisan Nasional-led federal government.

“This is an unhealthy message. Only a Yakuza, who are Japanese gangsters, would say these things,” Lim told a press conference in Parliament here.

The DAP secretary-general lamented that such statements were impertinent especially since the younger generation in light of the widespread media coverage on Muhyiddin’s statement are reading it.

“He is the DPM. He shouldn’t be saying these things,” argued Lim.

Lim felt Muhyiddin should instead offer to resign should the Kelantan government match federal development funding.

Malaysia practices federalism, however a strong and long-standing federal government has been accused of ‘stifling’ funds to opposition-led states like Kelantan. The north-east state is one of the nation’s poorest despite being oil-rich.

The state is now in an on-going dispute with the federal government over oil royalty.

The opposition Pakatan Rakyat — which both PAS and Lim’s DAP are in — has been battling for greater financial autonomy for the states they administer, campaigning vigorously for public support.

Meanwhile Lim said Muhyiddin should not comment on state affairs and maintained that state fiscal-development policies are the rights of the states.

The statement was made in response to BN’s salvo on his Penang government’s cash-aid-for-senior citizen campaign which the ruling coalition criticised as “lame”.

Lim said though BN leaders question the novelty of his RM100 hand out to some 100,000 of the state’s senior citizens, he reassured voters that the initiative was never taken by the past BN Penang government.

Leaders from the ruling coalition boasted that it was giving Penang’s old RM200 more than what Lim’s administration had but for the CM, it wasn’t about competing but appreciation for the senior citizens.
