我们永远怀念的 – 林敬益

当年,林敬益、林良实以及林吉祥号称“三林”,雄霸华人三大政党,为华社华教做出巨大贡献, 成为当时的一段佳话。

而林敬益的领袖风格,敢怒敢言,也常常在适当的时候以其独特的幽默笑话,四两拨千金把对手打得毫无还手之力。 在他的领导下, 民政党达到政治的最高峰,当时,林吉祥发起“丹绒三役”,却兵败如山倒的在升旗山国会选区败在谢宽泰手下,並在植物园州选区输给丁福南,以至林吉祥过后辞卸行动党秘书长职,改任党主席。

同年,林敬益提出虛擬大學的概念,创办宏愿大学,并在默默耕耘下,获得“2011年高教部評估制度"的五星级学术评价,是國內虛擬大学罕見的例子。

谈到林敬益,也不会忘记他出任部长时对国家做出的贡献。 尤其出任原产业部长期间成功开拓中国市场,引领我国种植业攀上高峰,至今仍为人津津乐道。林敬益多次访华,会见当时中国总理朱镕基,终于成功开拓中国市场,为我国种植原产业领域蓬勃发展奠定重要基础。

大马人民之声把正大光明送给敦林敬益,希望他的精神可以延续下去,成为民政党的模范,尽心尽力地服务人民。

PETALING JAYA: Former Gerakan president Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik passed away at his home in Tropicana here at 4.45pm on Saturday. He was 73.

He leaves behind his wife, Toh Puan Wong Yoon Chuan and three children.

After news of his demise was broadcast, media representatives began to fill up the area outside Lim’s residence to seek more information from members of his family.

His son, Gerakan Youth chief Datuk Lim Si Pin, when approached by reporters, declined to be interviewed.

Gerakan Youth secretary-general Dominic Lau, who was also present beside Si Pin, pleaded with the journalists to return to their offices.

“We will inform you tomorrow,” Lau said.

Dr Lim, a medical doctor-turned-politician, became the Gerakan president in 1980.

Born on April 8, 1939, Dr Lim began his political career in 1968 by joining the MCA. He subsequently contested in the Pekan Baru state seat in Perak in 1969 on an Alliance ticket, but lost.

In 1971, he became the chairman of Perak MCA but was expelled in 1973. In the same year, he joined Gerakan.

Dr Lim became the Ulu Kinta Gerakan division head the next year and moved up to become Perak Gerakan chief in 1974. In 1976, he became the party’s deputy president. In July 1978, Lim resigned as senator and contested in the general elections and won the Jalong state seat in Perak.

Dr Lim he contested and won the Beruas Parliament seat in 1986 with a handsome margin and had held the seat until the 2004 elections when he retired from politics.

Dr Lim first joined the Cabinet when he was made Minister with Special Functions dealing with New Villages and Emergency work in 1972.

He held many ministerial positions with the last being the Energy, Water and Communications portfolio in 2004.

On Sept 2, 2005, at the Gerakan annual national delegates conference dinner, Dr Lim announced that he would be retiring as party leader on April 8, 2007, which was also his 68th birthday.

Lim retired from his Cabinet post shortly before the 2008 general election.

敦林敬益 至情至性 为国为民

民政党前主席敦林敬益医生(1939-2012),外号“傻仔医生”,从政40余年,官拜州议员、行政议员、国会议员、部长。一生为国为民贡献良多,尤其出任原产业部长期间成功开拓中国市场,引领我国种植业攀上高峰,至今仍为人津津乐道。

最佳采访对象林敬益是一名至情至性的政治领袖,更是媒体记者眼中的最佳采访对象,有他在的场合,人们总被他的经典动作、名句逗得开怀大笑。大家如今仅可从一系列图片缅怀及追忆其庄谐并重、举重若轻的从政风采。

虽然多次强调不会哭,但到正式卸下党主席职务那天,林敬益仍有感而发,在台上当众掉泪,久久不能自己。

林敬益一手催生创办宏愿大学,临终仍不忘嘱咐后人要好好管理这所大学。他与许子根(右三)、郭洙镇(右起)等听取民政创党人林苍佑对宏愿大学总院建筑发表意见。

林敬益与中国总理朱镕基(右) 会谈。他多次访华, 成功开拓中国市场, 为我国种植原产业领域蓬勃发展奠定重要基础。

  1. Late Tun is the one who should be credited for the water act for the consolidation of water business in the country. But sad after the change of government, the PR government in Selangor politicised it and move backward instead. Selangor should learn from Penang respect good decision even if it is from past government.

      • Ubah, keep your fact right before you open your month! Tun Lim was famous with his righteousness and the opposition party never dare to accuse him of corruptions!

      • Dear ubah,
        Your venomous comments shows you PR guys has no humility nor humanity in your souls. Your adamant of hate and anger has killed your soul within.

        Your lack of respects for the passing of a human being has in turn shows you aren’t fit to be call a person let alone a Malaysian. Wheather you agree with his political views or not, this is not the time and place to degrade him.

        PLEASE SHOW SOME HUMILITY AND HUMANITY IF YOU CAN.

      • By the way, Utah.
        Your slandering of a dead person, that his is corrupted, whom will never able to defend himself is low, very very low indeed.

      • Dear dear dear ubah,
        Similarly, please list down what your PR, especially MB, has done for the state of selangor beside helping TALAM, ignoring WATERGATE, buying a BUS for his master.

        Has he done anything on his previous election promises for the poor, eg free water, single mothers allowance, housing for poor?

        THE ANSWER IS NO, NO, AND NO!

        So what BULL SH** YOU PR TROOPERS trying to claim!

      • Ex your mother, PR is not the federal government yet and that’s why they cannot give free water to all. Be eNd is federal governemnt, why they cannot give free water? Malaysians want a change, you all Fx Be eNd dogs will lose your job soon.

      • Dear Ubah,
        For your information, the FREE WATER, ALLOWANCES FOR SINGLE MOMS, AND LOW COST HOUSES were some of the manifesto made by PR before the last 12GE. OH! my apologies, your MB said “MANIFESTO” is NOT a promise.

        YEAH, TO PR MANIFESTO IS ONLY FOR GULLIBLE BRAIN DEAD PR SUPPORTERS. PR NEVER MADE ANY PROMISES ONLY MANIFESTO!

  2. (木威23日讯)曾任5届木威区国会议员的敦林敬益医生,对本身选区学校建设、公共设施等贡献良多,尤其木威区所有华小,都于他在任期间重建。

    一元对一元筹款

    木威培青华小董事长李顺民说,林敬益是勤政爱民的好议员,为了选区的发展和建设,曾以一元对一元方式,挑战华小董家教及华团进行筹款建校舍和礼堂,培育华小就是在他大力支持下重建,让区内华裔子弟享有完好的教学设备。

    他说,在木威区,除了所有华小在林敬益协助下重建新校舍,多所印小学生也在他努力下进入新校舍上课。

    “林敬益为民服务和积极争取建设发展的态度,深受木威区各族居民爱戴。”

    比教育部早推动电脑计划———木威区国阵协调员●姚宜铨

    林敬益非常重视乡区教育,教育部未在小学推动电脑教学计划前,他已在木威区各源流中小学推动电脑计划,一些郊区学校更在电脑设备送到学校后,才装置电供设备。

    木威各甘榜、乡村或重组村都备有民众会堂和多元化礼堂,这都是林敬益在任期间,有系统的兴建起来,甚至连花园住宅区也建有供居民聚会活动的场所。

    幽默亲和印象深——班台直民华小董事长●许保持

    直民华小的兴建和德教会大礼堂,以及各种基本设施,都是在敦林敬益的任期内落实的。

    区内的华小校舍、礼堂等许多公共设备都以林敬益名字命名,就是明证。

    敦林的幽默表达方式与亲和力,让大部分木威选民留下极好印象。
