Potholes have long plagued roads in Malaysia, and Malaysians were frustrated at the authorities who failed to address this issue despite multiple complaints being lodged.
So much so that some members of the public tried to fix these potholes themselves. Nonetheless, it appears that some politicians had joined the game, especially when the 15th General Election (GE15) is right around the corner.
Recently, Perikatan Nasional (PN) candidate for Bukit Gelugor, P Thinagaranabhan took to his Facebook page to share how he fixes a pothole by filling it with stones before putting a car tyre around it.
“Today we found a pothole in the road and to prevent accidents for everyone, we filled what was there on the road.”
“The power of role models! Every ordinary person can change the world! Let’s change Malaysia together!” Thinagaranabhan wrote in the caption.
He then ended his post by signing off as the candidate for the Bukit Gelugor parliamentary seat.
Moral project passed!
The post had since gone viral online, with many netizens praising the candidate with much sarcasm.
“My baby nephew needs a clown for his birthday party. I find that you are quite funny. Can I have you over his party please?” a netizen asked.
“Life-changing solution. Thank you YB. The entire residents of Bukit Gelugor will vote for you!” another netizen said.
Meanwhile, many netizens also liken Thinagaranabhan’s act to making a folio, just like how Malaysian students did at school for their moral project.
“Okay. Your folio passed,” a netizen said.
