KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians have to possess a developed mentality in order to achieve the status of a developed nation, pointed out DAP stalwart Lim Kit Siang.
He said in a statement yesterday that Malaysia has failed to achieve a developed nation status in line with Vision 2020 because Malaysians have not yet adopted a more matured mindset to aspire and become among the world’s leading nations.
The veteran politician also believes that only when we have the mentality of a developed nation we shall have a better life.
“To make life better for all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region, we must have the mentality of a developed nation,” Lim Kit Siang said.
A developed mentality, according to him, means understanding the importance of commitment and be matured in making decisions that would help the country achieve its goal of being recognised as a developed nation.
Beside possessing a developed mentality, Lim retreated that Malaysians have to unite in fighting kleptocracy and corruption.
“This is an important reason why Malaysians who care for a better life in the future for all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region, must unite to ensure that the war against kleptocracy and corruption is carried out to its logical conclusion.
