Radio Host: Thank you so much for your time, YB.
YB: No problem. You bayar me later for it.
Radio Host: So YB, can you tell us a little about yourself.
YB: Owhh I like soalan camni. Sedap jawap. Okay I nih YB Sukhbir Cheema, lahir di kawasan parlimen Rasah and have been contesting situ ever since. I’m currently 47-years-young *laughs*
Radio Host: I heard you’re a Manchester City supporter and you apparently hold a season ticket pass to their matches. Is it true?
YB: Yes! I’ve been supporting Manchester City all my life!
Radio Host: Who’s your favorite player from the club then?
YB: Van Persie without a doubt!
Radio Host: Moving on to the next question. We also heard you’re a movie buff.
YB: That’s true! I suka citer Godfather, Pulp Fiction, The Usual Suspek, Reservoir Dog, Scarface, and my most favorite punyer filem, The Goodfellas.
Radio Host: Wow that’s quite a list. But it just struck me, those are movies about gangters.
Radio Host: Does this mean you have an affinity towards gangsterism?
YB: What’s your favorite punyer movies?
Radio Host: Err YB?
YB: Your favorite movies. Cakapler..
Radio Host: Okay, well.. I enjoyed Brokeback Mountain and A Single Man.
YB: Those are gay movies. Do you have affinity untuk gay people?
Radio Host: Ofcourse not! I’m straight!
YB: So just sebab I watch gangster punyer movie, I nih macam gangster ker?
Radio Host: Sorry YB but there has been numerous scandals listed under your name, from illegal citizenships to sex videos to gangsterism. Why?
YB: Why? You tanyer saya why? Because I’m the best la! That’s why. People jealous so buat fitnah camni.
Radio Host: You had failed to be present at court to face a few of these charges. Why so?
YB: I prefer when you ask me questions tentang my hobbies you know..
Radio Host: The public wants to know YB..
YB: *sighs* Because I was busy with my party work. Work comes first than anything else.
Radio Host: If they did, how come things like these emerge then?
YB: Because I work so hard that people cemburu la. So mereka nih fitnah I bukan-bukan. I thought I answer you already what?
Radio Host: If POKAI wins the GE, you’re touted to be the next Prime Minister. It’s the same with Malaysia’s Old Revolutionary Old National’s (MORON) chairman, Datuk Loo Kong Kek. What’s your thoughts on this?
YB: Loo can go kongkek la! He cakap jer besar but for two elections kalah teruk dengan i.
Radio Host: But apparently, according to statistics, he’s currently leading you in terms of support from the youths at your constituency.
YB: Where you saw the statistik? Have you seen mine?
Radio Host: No YB.
YB: Ahh then how can you tell mereka semua ni support dia? Maner tau statistik tu salah ker, kena sabotage ker?
Radio Host: What does your statistics say then?
YB: My one say all akan undi saya sebab I bagi mereka duit beli buku.
Radio Host: I see. Speaking of books, Rasah has the lowest number of students not scoring enough A’s in the country. What’s your thoughts on this.
YB: Budak-budak sekolah kenalah belajar to divide their time between aktiviti luar sekolah and dalam sekolah. That’s the problem when they spend too much time indulging in gangsterism activities. There should be a balance. Gangsterism and studying, barulah pandai!
Radio Host: Alright. Thank you so much for your time YB. For viewers at home who wish to pose questions to YB, kindly post your comments below as there will be a special webcast interview session with him tomorrow.
YB: Eh by the way, you mention Brokeback Mountain, want to watch later together?
Radio Host: Err YB we are still on air.
YB: *on impulse* Fitnah! Ini semua fitnah!
Reporter: Hello YB thank you for coming to our live webcast.
YB: Ohh thank you, thank you.
Reporter: YB, there was only one question asked by the public yesterday and lots of err.. “comments”. One user by the name Nawin Narayanan, says and I quote, “It’s a wonder he has won two elections before this,” What is your thoughts?
YB: Memang! It’s definitely a wonder. Seven wonder in the world *laughs*
Reporter: Another user, Lavanya Singham, asks “YB, u mentioned that there should be a balance between gangsterism and studying in order to have more students scoring more A’s as opposed to all of them running wild on the streets. As a member of the general public who is concerned for the well being of the community especially in Rasah, I would like to ask why isn’t it your goal to eradicate gangsterism completely; instead you seem to be accepting the violent culture as a normal means of recreation by our youth. How do you plan to safeguard the peace in Rasah and at the same time try to produce ‘pelajar mithali?'”
YB: Ahh ini soalan bagus! Okay, for me la, violence nih is everywhere. Ibu pukul anak, is violence. Anak pukul ibu is violence jugak. There should be balance la between gangsterism and pelajaran. If you’re a gangster but takde education, camner? If you’re educated, but not a gangster, camner? So you need two hands to tepuk la. Youths sekarang nih tak suka if you suruh mereka buat benda. You kena let them do what they like and also ajar mereka to balance la. It’s okay to be gangster, but be an educated gangster. Semua orang pun kalau boleh, nak jadik gangster. We have many educated gangsters in our country what. Take them as examples and emulate mereka la. Or if nothing works, we just give these gangsters a non-governmental organisation status and work closely dengan mereka for our politik punyer agenda la.
Reporter: Your schedule seems to be packed and we learnt that you just got back from a video shoot. How did it go?
YB: The video shoot tuh untuk my campaigning punyer period la. So I rekod video, pastu play kay tempat awam. Bus station la, tren stesen la, inside tren la, outside tren la, and everywhere la. If boleh play dalam toilet pun, bagus!
Reporter: And what will you be doing in the video YB?
YB: I will be singing a lagu la. Actually not me singing but we manage to dapat penyanyi terkenal to sing. I just miming jer. Pastu I dance dengan remaja dalam video to show that I’m youthful and then I tolong seorang si buta lintas jalan dalam video, and then I buat-buat main drum. Very fun and i’m sure many will love the video.
Reporter: Wow sounds like you had a good time!
YB: Ofcourse. And then esok i rekod another video. Ini remix of a popular song, Harlem Shake. In this one we poke fun at Datuk Loo Kong Kek punyer isteri. We got someone to dress like her and dance around in the tren. People love these kind of things. Once dah siap, we pelan to upload nih dalam youtube jer. This song will be spread on sosial media, while the other one in public punyer tempat. Macam tuh, maner-maner orang pergi pun, tak akan luper my face.
Reporter: Any other plans for you to approach the public?
YB: I heard sosial media play important punyer role in this election. So last week I dah set up Friendster punyer account then from there I get in touch with voters la.
Reporter: Interesting. So how many friend requests have you got?
YB: None so far but I dah ada dua friend. My PA and my deputy. So slowly and steady la.
Reporter: What about a blogsite, do you have one?
YB: That one I dah ader long time dah, but just recently I’m using it la to kutuk my opponent and upload video sek of him there.
Reporter: We also heard you’ll be bringing a famous artist to Rasah, your parliamentary seat, for one of your campaigning period.
YB: Yes, artis tuh memang terkenal. Instead of boring punyer ceramah, buat konsert lagi best.
Reporter: Amazing. Who’s this famous artist?
YB: Micheal Jackson.
Reporter: But YB he passed away almost four years ago.
YB: Ehh ye ker??
YB: Kalau camtu, no choice but I have to go on stage to mime to the lagu yang i rekod semalam jer la..
Reporter: YB the public is not happy with you increasing the public aid from RM700 to RM 2000 annually, many are saying it’s from tax payers money. What are your comments?
YB: Ahh this is the problem with rakyat Malaysia. Asyik-asyik komplen takder duit. Tapi bila bagi duit, they make noise saying this is tax payer punyer money la, aper la.
Reporter: Many are saying this is a form of bribe to garner more voters for your party. Your comments YB?
YB: Hello, if I bribe I bagi duit undertable. This one I siap tunjuk manifesto and bagi duit atas table. Maner bribe? Orang nak duit, I bagi duit la. Salah ker?
Reporter: In the manifesto, it’s also mentioned that petrol prices, freedom of press and free education will be given if POKAI wins the elections. All these pledges has led to the manifesto being labelled as a “populist manifesto” by certain quarters. What’s your response to that?
YB: Ofcourse la populist. We’re popular what! So orang popular kenala buat benda popular. You ni dari media mana?
Reporter: XY Media..
YB: Patut la soalan camni. Malaysia’s Old Revolutionary Old National’s (MORON) backed media.
Reporter: How and where would you find the resources for the public aid to give RM2000 to every Malaysian?
YB: Dengan senang. Lower petrol price and rise the sugar dengan flour price la.
Reporter: But wouldn’t that make the situation worst?
YB: Mereka nak the petrol price to be lowered, so i buat low untuk diorang la. Plus bagi aid lagi tuh.
Reporter: What if there’s a public backlash on this, resulting in many complaining the sugar and flour price as too high?
YB: Then we lower harga gula dengan tepung and make the petrol price high back la. Kan senang cerita?
Reporter: What is freedom of press to you?
YB: Simple. I bagi you freedom, you jadik press untuk saya la.
