According to Karpal, Datuk Seri Najib's transformation programs only touches the surface of the real problem.
For Karpal, to get to the bottom of the issue, the first step that the PM has to take would be to 'restore the status of Bumiputera to every single citizen who was born during and after August 31, 1957, which was the Independence day for this country. The real intention behind that is simply to destroy Bumiputeras' rights. We are not surprised with Karpal's statement because it has been the DAP's main objective, which is to destroy all of Malay power in Malaysia.
To fulfil such an objective, the DAP often creates stories that Bumiputera rights are a form of discrimination against non-bumi citizens. As if they are not important and did not get any infrastructure and help from the government. The fact is, even with bumiputera rights, non-bumis have managed to drive out 18,000 bumis in Penang. So, how would it have been if bumis were not protected by the government? When bumis are all still fighting just to survive and non-bumis are all rich with money and power in controlling the nation's economy. Thus, how would it have been for bumis if their economy was not protected by the government?
