"Lazybones and Loiterers"

"Lazybones and Loiterers"

The Alliance government has planned intrigues and it resorted to slanders to cover its crimes against the rural youths. The Chief Minister of Malacca slandered them as lazybones, saying that they refused to stand on their own feet. The newspaper Utusan Melayu accused them of being loiterers and irresponsible persons and gave this as the reason for their being unemployed in large numbers. This ultra-reactionary paper went even further to humiliate them by calling upon them not to live by begging.
