This morning, there was a big traffic jam happening around Jalan Dato Keramat and Jalan Patani in Georgetown, Penang when the MIC-led demonstration took place near Komtar when they attempted to march together with the so-call residents of Kg Buah Pala to have a face-to-face talk with our CM Lim Guan Eng.
But what was suprising to this latest ‘march to save Kg Buah Pala’ was it happened when the CM and the State government has managed to hold a heart-to-heart talk in Komtar yesterday night that went on till almost 10:30PM. Barisan Nasional has always claimed that Pakatan Rakyat of trying to win cheap political mileage through silly stunts but here we got MICkey mouse playing cartoon comedy in order to gain some cheap political gain from our fellow Indians.
IF (the conditional if is here again) MIC was serious in truly SAVING Kg Buah Pala, they should have done something when the previous deputy CM of Penang by the name of Rashid so-and-so officially announcing the ‘transfer’ of the land from our ‘adik-beradik yang membela lembu’ to the Koperasi. Why wait until Pakatan took control of the government and then start to stake your stupid demand that the State Government should buy up the land when it has been ‘nasi sudah menjadi bubur??’
These people just don’t understand, do they? Yes… we are concern about the heritage of our fellow Indian people and their livelihood. But as the government of the day, the CM has to abide by the verdict of the court of law! At the same time, we ought to ask ourselves how come the issue was only brought up after the world economy dipped? Don’t you all smell something was fishy? CM Lim Guan Eng was right when he pointed that to buy back the land from the developer would only benefit NO ONE but the developer who stand to earn hundreds of millions by doing NOTHING at all! Will it be accountable to the people of Penang when the government is to use the public’s fund to ensure the existance of Kg Buah Pala? I’m very sure that many people (including most residents of KBP) will find that RM150 Million will be better utilized than to fatten a company with strong connection of umno – the ‘daylight robber’ of rakyat Malaysia.
As for the case of Teo Beng Hock, I was quite relieved yet sceptical when I heard from the radio of my car that our dear Najiv Rojak has decided to call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry in order to give a reasonable account to the public on the latest hottest issue in our country.
But after reading the blog of Taikor Jeff Ooi and going through the newspaper, I was shocked that RCI was only being LIMITED to the interrogation methologies of the MACC while the unfortunate death of Teo will only be probed by an Inquest led by a low-ranking majistrate.
This is entirely purely Najiv Rojak’s style! He wanted to give something to the people and yet would hold back his hand – fearing that he might given too much to the people and seen as being ‘weak’ by his hordes of cronies. Remember the ‘Touch & Go’ subsidy which he announced a few weeks ago? Only those who use the card 80 times would be able to enjoy a 20% discount. What if you only used it for 75? 78? or even 79 times a month? Ophssss… so sorry, you will not be entitled to the subsidy at all! How absurd and insincere…
The insincerity of our Malaysian government in handling the death of Teo Beng Hock is soooo apparent when they separated the same case into 2 different scenarios. Are they trying to ‘deceived’ the people? Since the people want a RCI, ok… we give them RCI but we limit the scope of the inquiry. Only the devil knows how in the world could our cabinet came up with such an idiotic idea when we all know Teo Beng Hock could have died due to the gross interrogation methods applied by the MACC. No matter what happens, you just can’t change the fact that Teo died under the custody of MACC!
Until today, we have yet to see the MACC chairman Ahmad Said Hamdan took the honour to resign from his post to take responsibility over the incident of Teo Beng Hock. It only shows that MACC is still very arrogant and refused to take the blam. Is it has to do with any pantang larang nenek moyang again??? or there is an unwritten law that no matter what happen, one should not admit one’s fault under BN’s adminstration??
Remember Ahmad Ismail, if someone is to approach him, he would still maintain his innocence. How ignorant and arrogant! Talking about taking responsibility and apologizing, I think we should commend the courage of PKR Penang municipal councillor Razali who openly apologised to Penang CM on his mistake. This has nothing to do with race. Let us not raise any sensitive racial issue here… We are talking about the entire bangsa Malaysia. Come on, we all make mistakes. Bumi mana tidak pernah dilanda hujan? But to come out, admit our mistakes and take responsibility over the mistakes require great courage from any man on the earth. Remember Bill Clinton who faced the entire world and apologized over his scandal with Monica Lewinsky? I salute him… not for his crazy act with his intern, but for his courage to face the television and tell the world that he has actually made mistakes!
Sadly, we have yet to see any of our so-call leaders in the Feds level who has this kind of courage. In fact, ‘hantu’ like Toyol and gang are still in the state of denial and thought that they really could do ANYTHING in this land call Malaysia without having to pay for their sins.
