“Budak-budak baju merah” yang bantu kami, kata mangsa banjir

“I really salute ini budak-budak baju merah. Every time ada disaster you boleh nampak dia orang. They come in quietly, do their work, and then quietly they leave. No fanfare, no TV3,” komen seorang bukan Melayu yang kini tersebar luas dalam media sosial.

(Saya sangat tabik budak-budak baju merah ini. Setiap kali ada musibah, awak boleh nampak  mereka. Mereka datang senyap-senyap, buat kerja mereka, dan kemudiannya pergi senyap-senyap. Tanpa laporan media, tanpa TV3).

Budak-budak baju merah adalah anggota Unit Amal Dewan Pemuda PAS. Kini ribuan daripada mereka sedang membantu mangsa banjir khasnya di Kuantan dan Kemaman, kawasan yang paling teruk dilanda banjir.

Mereka bukan dari Pahang dan Terengganu sahaja bahkan datang dari seluruh negara. Bahkan untuk memudahkan urusan, mereka yang bukan anggota Unit Amal juga memakai baju merah Unit Amal ketika datang untuk menolong mangsa banjir. Dengan cara itu, semua orang tahu mereka sedia menjalankan apa saja tugas untuk membantu mangsa.

Selepas bertungkus lumus dengan kerja menyelamat dan membantu mangsa di pusat pemindahan kini mereka bertugas untuk membersih rumah mangsa banjir pula. Malah, mereka juga bersedia untuk menghadapi gelombang kedua banjir ini.

KUALA LUMPUR: A second wave of flooding has begun in Terengganu with more people affected by rising water while continuous rain in Pahang is putting the authorities and public on high alert over the next 24 hours.

However, both Kelantan and Johor saw a slight improvement after many flood evacuees were allowed to return home.

The Meteorological Department said that thunderstorms and heavy rain occurring over Pahang and Terengganu are expected to persist.

It added that the same weather conditions were expected to occur over Perak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Negeri Sembilan and Johor.

THE MISSING UMNO LEADERS

Malaysian Insider

For Umno, when it rains, it pours and floods

COMMENTARY BY THE MALAYSIAN INSIDER
December 06, 2013

Multimedia and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek checking the flood situation in Kemaman. - The Malaysian Insider pic, December 6, 2013.Multimedia and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek checking the flood situation in Kemaman. – The Malaysian Insider pic, December 6, 2013.

As it rains, pours and floods in the East Coast, several towns are being cut off and thousands are being evacuated to relief centres by civil defence and army personnel.

Yet in Malaysia, what is important is the politician for the photo-op either to inquire their well-being or to hand over aid. This time, none of that was happening in Terengganu or Pahang, which is Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s home state.

There is some disquiet why Umno politicians are not at the scene – perhaps due to the low numbers being evacuated compared to the more than 100,000 that sought shelter and relief in 2006 when Johor was inundated. Only Multimedia and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek has been on the ground to assist in relief works.

For Najib, the floods are hitting Pahang just as his Umno gathers for its annual general assembly. Thousands, including all leaders, are huddled in Umno’s Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) to listen to speeches, shop and enjoy the leaders’ hospitality at the various brunches, luncheons, teas and dinners.

None of them are in Kemaman or Kuantan, among the hardest hit towns where residents are appealing for help and wondering why Najib and his cohorts are crowing about popular votes and exhorting the party to represent the people when they are in dire need of help.

Banjir Kuantan: Detik Katrina Najib dan Muhyi – Sakmongkol

December 06, 2013

Other than the horrific loss of life and property which Hurricane Katrina wreaked on parts of America in 2005, the severity of the natural disaster was eclipsed by the monumental insensitivity of Bush Junior.

Najib dan Muhyidin dengan hanya terbang di ruang udara Kuantan tanpa singgah, melakukan monumental insensitivity seperti Bush. Seperti biasa Zahid Hamidi menunjukkan keangkuhan dan kedunguannya.

Saya hairan bagaimana pembelajaran yang tinggi sehingga peringkat PhD tidak sedikit pun mengukir kehalusan dalam conduct Zahid. Bila ditanya oleh pemberita adakah banjir di Kuantan akan mendedahkan penduduk Kuantan kepada Lynas – Zahid seperti biasa menunjukkan sikap membuli orang. Takkah dia tahu bagaimana hendak menjawab soalan?

Setelah satu hari Kuantan banjir saya mendapat sms daripada seorang mangsa banjir – Di SMK Bkt Ranging – air, letrik xda, mknan x cukup, yb xda.

Mana YB nak ada – mereka sibuk di Perhimpunan Agung Umno (PAU). Kepada Bani Umno, PAU adalah acara terpenting dalam kehidupan orang Melayu.

Bukan dia hendak jawab tapi cuba mengada-ngada berkhutbah kepada pemberita mengenai betapa baiknya Najib dan Muhyidin meruangkan masa terbang di udara Kuantan meninjau keseriusan keadaan.

Banjir, oh banjir, di mana parti “pembela rakyat”? – Soraya Salim

December 05, 2013

Ketika ini, sedang rakyat Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan dan Johor mengharungi derita banjir dengan kemusnahan tempat tinggal dan harta benda tanpa sumber makanan mencukupi, bekalan elektrik dan air yang terputus, selain anggota keselamatan dan sukarelawan yang bertungkus-lumus menyelamat mangsa dan menghulurkan bantuan, di mana parti yang sering mendabik dada sebagai “pembela rakyat”?

Sekadar melaungkan retorik di Perhimpunan Agung yang sedang berlangsung di dewan berhawa dingin sambil berbangga bahawa parti itulah penyelamat bangsa?

Atau sekadar meninjau dari helikopter tanpa turun padang mengalami sendiri penderitaan rakyat yang majoritinya berbangsa Melayu dari kawasan pedalaman (yang majoritinya telah memenangkan Barisan Nasional dalam Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13)?
