Xenophobia, selfishness and political showmanship prohibit the permanent residents from enjoying the fuel rebates

TQ Dr., for your kindness and consideration for us in writing this letter. But Xenophobia, selfishness and political showmanship of leaders here prohibit the permanent residents from enjoying the fuel rebates.

Nowadays racist politicians are so bankrupted of ideas as they could not show off any more to their races as the defender and champion of their race, by attacking other Malaysians after the wind of change that blew during the GE 2008.

So they all need to hit the foreigners, including the PR holders to showoff their own races as patriotic heroes. This is going on sadly on the both sides of the political divide. Both the Government and opposition leaders are shamelessly keep on hitting the soft spot to gain political mileage.

Please read this kind gentle Dr’s letter_

Let permanent residents enjoy fuel rebates too

The Star Online

DR A. SOORIAN, Seremban

I REFER to plight of numerous permanent residents who have been unjustly discriminated against by the ruling that they do-not qualify for petrol rebates.

The difference between a citizen of this country and a permanent resident is only a technicality; only a piece of paper (citizenship) divides them. In the United Kingdom, for example, permanent residents can vote.

Permanent residents have lived in this country for umpteen years and have contributed to the economy in much the same way as the citizens. So why could we ignore them now in their hour of need?

The cost to the government to include them in the petrol rebates is negligible considering the abuse by some of our citizens in smuggling the fuel to neighbouring countries etc.
