Let Deepavali 1999 usher in a new millennium where good triumphs over evil, starting with the restoration of justice, freedom, democracy and good governance in Malaysia.
On the occasion of the "Festival of Light", let Malaysians of all races
and faiths mark its spirit by joining hands to beat back the forces
of darkness to give space for the development of a moral, decent, ust,
equal and fair society where the backward, downtrodden and exploited have
first claim to national attention.
The 10th general election is not far off, most likely in the last week of January next year. Let all Malaysians make a Deepavali resolution to make the 10th general election a celebration of light rather than an enveloping of darkness - the cleanest rather than the dirtiest general election in the nationís history.
