PAS pledges 100000 members for Bersih 2.0

Posted: 19 Jun 2011 12:30 PM PDT

Opposition party PAS has pledged to mobilise 100000 of its members for the Bersih 2.0 rally planned for July 9 to push for free and fair elections. "At least 100000 thousand PAS members will come down for the rally," said party central working committee member Syed Azman Syed Ahmad Nawawi, the Islamic party's representative for the event launch tonight. Syed Azman (right) also pledged PAS' support for the movement, although he was quick to add that Bersih does not belong to any political party but to the rakyat. PAS members are known for their discipline and they often make up significant numbers in many opposition and civil society movements and rallies because of the party's ability to mobilise mass support. PAS also operates the much praised Unit Amal or volunteer corps that is experienced in maintaining order during demonstrations and providing logistical support. Syed Azman was one of the several allied representatives and Bersih 2.0 steering committee members who spoke during the launch tonight of the event and its eight point agenda.

Former Finance Minister Tengku Razaleigh Speaks...

Posted: 19 Jun 2011 10:09 AM PDT

The UMNO MP for Gua Musang is a "unique"voice in the party that just didn't give him a chance to serve as Prime Minister. But this Kelantan prince still has a chance -- IF HE WOULD JUST MAKE SME RIGHT MOVES OUT OF UMNO who doesn't appreciate his talent. Maybe Pakatn Rakyat would.......


Sunday, 19 June 2011
Tengku Razaleigh speaks.

1. Malaysia's post-colonial history began with optimism and a grand hope in 1957. When Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, proclaimed our Independence at the Merdeka Stadium in the unforgettable words that "Malaysia is a parliamentary democracy with an independent judiciary," he had a vision of a happy people in spite of the formidable economic problems we needed to solve. After that dawn of independence, there was a search of how we could achieve this happy society, Fulfilling the needs and aspirations of all Malaysians which was to continue for the Generations to come. He symbolized the concept and conviction of generational responsibility in his vision.
2. Tunku Abdul Rahman and his generation were dedicated leaders, not for power but a sense of duty to the present and the future. They were not in politics for the money or for themselves. Indeed, even after they had assumed power, they never used their position to benefit themselves or their families, nor did they build loyal cronies who would act as their financiers or hold any wealth unlawfully earned at the expense of the people.
3. The guiding philosophy was responsibility of public office. Public office was seen as a duty, not as an opportunity. The public office was also part of their sense of political commitment to create a Malaysia that was fair, just, cohesive, and balanced. This was combined by a deep conviction of generational responsibility for those who would come after them.
4. One of the greatest losses in public life and in politics today in Malaysia is that loss of generational responsibility. Everything seems to be surrounded by greed and the desire to be billionaires. This had led to a pyramid of cronies within the incumbent political parties and their associates in business. It is this combination of the hierarchy of political cronies and business cronies that led to the centralization of power in the incumbent political leadership and in the office of the Prime Minister.
5. This power in one individual allowed the manipulation of the political system; I mean by this the institutions of power including the media. In exchange for the centralization of power greed and self-interest was encouraged by example and in the guise of racial loyalty deserving rewards. This is the case in all the parties within the power structure. This state of affairs is one of the most dangerous and difficult to dismantle because there has been three decades of centralized power.
6. The political style that has dominated in these lost three decades has been "double-think" and "double-talk". One of the features which is alarming in this plan to maintain status quo is the encouragement covertly of racial and religious obscurantism. The underlying theme was a policy of using a balance of racialism and religion on the one hand and talks of unity on the other hand in order to make the people hostage to the status quo of power. As a result, racialism and racial concerns seem to have a grip on all aspects of our lives, in politics, economics, education and employment, irrespective of the present reality which has got nothing to do with race or religion. We are deliberately made to feel that we are hostage to these forces.
7. Freedom of speech and expression of our political concerns to change the atmosphere are restrained by how it will be interpreted by those who want to deny us the right to differ. Article 10 of the Constitution which guarantees this freedom is almost non-existence or subject to fear of retaliation or defamation. Legal suits intended to silence legitimate concerns of public responsibility are increasingly used. Unfortunately, our judicial system has forgotten the fundamental importance of Article 10 to the democratic life of Malaysia. Common sense seems to have been taken out of the law.
8. On the economic front, income inequality in Malaysia has widened. Some studies suggest that Malaysia's inequality is wider than Thailand's or Indonesia's. Historically, the concern was about ownership and control of the economy. It was the view of some that if ownership was de-racialized or balanced at the top, economic justice would follow. It is no longer a valid premise for the future. Income inequality is no longer a problem between races; it crosses the racial divide and it is a problem of the majority of Malaysians who feel the pressure of inflation in almost every essential aspect of their lives, challenging their wellbeing of themselves, their families, and their future. Today and the in the near future, this is the most serious challenge we face. It is not an easy challenge to overcome. It is a time when Malaysia needs leadership of the highest quality and of those who have the moral courage to change and re-think our economic policies.
9. It is in these circumstances that we face the serious problem of rising food prices, inflation in price of houses compounded by shortage in housing for the vast majority of young Malaysians. Lack of economic expansion to give all levels an opportunity to use their talents to seek work that is commensurate with their contribution, their needs of daily life, and to narrow the inequality gap, is the threat of the future. Therefore, we should be concerned about the justification of the removal of subsidies that affects the low income because that will further widen the inequality and open the society to social disorder and disintegration, and increase social in cohesion. It is in this context that I raise the issue about Independent Power Production Companies (IPP). The privatization contracts are today protected by the Official Secrets Act, and therefore we are unable to really know whether or not the public and PETRONAS, as trustees of the public, are directly or indirectly subsidizing these companies and the tycoons who are benefitting at the expense of the public.
10. Related to the question of the withdrawal of subsidies is the deficit that the Government suffers from in managing the economy. This question cannot be separated from the way that the Government has managed the nation's finances. If the deficit is as a result of wastage, corruption and extravagance in the use of public funds, then the solution to the problem should not be passed on to the public. What is needed is a reexamination of the management of the country's finances before taking any drastic steps that would affect the well-being of the people. We need to know the reality behind the apparent subsidies that are given to the public and its relationship in the totality of the management of the public finance. Only after we know the truth – and the whole truth – should any change in the policy of subsidies be implemented, as the consequences would have life-changing impact on the livelihood of the people. In the circumstances of rising inflation in food, stagnation of the economy and income, we should not do anything that would widen the disparity of income which would cause social instability.
11. The challenge today is for the return to generational responsibility in politics and public office. This can only be achieved if we have democracy and parliamentary power which is responsible. Democracy was the basis of the founding of the state of Malaysia by the Constitution in 1957. When it was briefly suspended in 1969, the leaders of that generation were uneasy, and they restored democracy as soon as possible.
12. That is because they realized that democracy has an intrinsic value in creating a citizenship that is not made up of sheep but of responsible citizens. Only responsible citizenship that understands democracy can bring about stability, cohesion and economic prosperity. During those days, it was ingrained in that generation of leaders that democracy was not only a form but a value system that respected the essential institutions of democracy like the independence of judiciary, the supremacy of parliament subject to the Constitution, the respect for fundamental rights, and free speech. They also understood the meaning and primacy of the rule of law and not of men. They also knew that democracy is the common heritage of humanity that we inherited and have a duty to continue. The law that they understood was also from the common heritage of all civilized nations.
13. And one of our inheritances is the common law system of the rule of law which is enshrined in our constitution. They knew that the phrase "common law" meant the wisdom that is passed to us in the progress of law and the values that are encapsulated in the law governing public office and responsibility to society. That laws are meant to enhance democracy and freedom but not to maintain and continue political power that is inconsistent with the rule of law and the constitution.
14. Independence did not come with peace but with very difficult problems, particularly the management of the economy and transforming it to bring about a balance between all the racial groups. They realize that some of their problems had roots in the history of Malaysia. There was a serious imbalance between the countryside and the urban sector with racial dimensions which were too sharp. Indeed, poverty was also quite prevalent. There were open discussions and experiments.
15. Some of you may remember that one of the highlights of public debate was organized at the University of Malaya under the title, "The Great Economic Debate" every year. That disappeared with the changes in the University & Colleges Act and the decline of Universities' autonomy. The search was to eradicate a sense of inequality between the various peoples of Malaysia, whether because of one's identity and social origins, or for other reasons.
16. It was as part of this search that during Tun Abdul Razak's time, the Second Malaysia Plan was launched in 1971. We need to be reminded of the objective of that plan:
"National unity is the over-riding objective of the country. A stage has been reached in the nation's economic and social development where greater emphasis must be placed on social integration and more equitable distribution of income and opportunities for national unity."
17. That dream was slowly eroded from the mid-1980. The hope that we had at that time is now challenged in the most serious way.
18. Recently, PETRONAS announced that it had made a 90.5 billion pre-tax profit. If we accumulate the profit of PETRONAS over the years, it would come to a mind-boggling figure of billions and billions. Yet, the greatest poverty is found in the petroleum producing states of Kelantan, Terengganu, Sarawak, and Sabah. This moral inconsistency in a way exemplifies how the nation's economy is mismanaged and how the institutions set up in the 1970's have lost their objective and commitment to solving the immediate and pressing problems of the nation.
19. PETRONAS was set up with the objective of serving the nation's interest as a priority. It was never intended to give PETRONAS a life of its own as an incorporated company for selected individuals to profit at the expense of the national interest, nor was it the objective to allow PETRONAS a cooperate existence independent of national interest. 20. What is needed is for institutions like PETRONAS is to have a national focus rather than maintain a multinational status. The aim of making PETRONAS a multinational cooperation at the expense of national interest is contrary to the Petroleum Development Act. PETRONAS should have a Petroleum Advisory Council to advise the Prime Minister on the operation of the law as well as the management and utilization of its resources as spelt out in the Petroleum Development Act.
21. Another example of the abuse of power is the privatization of certain government institutions which were set up as a public service to serve the people. Bernas is one example of a privatization of an essential commodity as a monopoly for a group of people and owned partially by two companies in Hong Kong. An essential commodity such as rice should not have been privatized for business purposes. We are the only rice producing country that has privatized and given as a monopoly to one company the importation and distribution of all rice products.
22. The reality today is Thailand and Indonesia are self-sufficient in rice and we are dependent on 30% of imported rice. But because it is a monopoly, imported rice is cheaper in Singapore than Malaysia. Privatization for the benefit of private individuals to profit from such an essential commodity is a clear abuse of power. It would not have happened in those days. But with the centralization of power in the office of the prime Minister who had the party under his absolute control, anything was possible!
23. I will suggest to you that there was a deliberate plan to centralize power in the leadership in a surreptitious manner. Unfortunately the nature of racial politics blinded us of the reality behind certain policies and conduct of leaders at that time. The decline of democracy, the abuse of power, and the mismanagement of our economy and the nation's finances, the economic waste, the lack of national cohesion in our economic policies led to the flight of capital in the region of RM880 billion over the years from the 1980s. That was the beginning the lost decades and the full impact of the consequences of the economic policies which has continued since then, is yet to have its full impact on our national lives. And when it does the consequences are unpredictable.
24. The centralization of power in the office of the Prime Minister and the Attorney general had a major role in this state of affairs. The challenge today is to reverse the centralization of power and restore the check and balance of a genuine democracy.
25. We need to reclaim as citizens of Malaysia our rights in a democracy; that power and authority are positions of trust and responsibility, not to serve personal interest or as an opportunity for personal enrichment. We need to reassert as politically active and responsible citizens the concept of social obligation and public service in those who seek political office. Power is duty, NOT a prize.
26. We need to rethink our economic policies. Particularly in the focusing on the national objectives that are urgent; economic policies is not only about wealth creation but needs to have a moral dimension which takes into account the wellbeing of all citizens as the ultimate priority over profits.
27. I have given you a broad sweep of the past and a bird's eye view of the looming problems of managing our economy as it is today. I hope this will open a dialogue which benefits all of us.

Anything can happen on July 9, Perkasa warns

Posted: 19 Jun 2011 09:06 AM PDT

Perkasa's president Ibrahim Ali has claimed the group's planned 'Peace March' on July 9 is aimed at defending the peace and stopping the Bersih 2.0 coalition from holding a demonstration on that day. In a show of anger at Bersih leaders during the launch of its march at the Sultan Sulaiman Club in Kuala Lumpur today, members of the purported Malay rights group took to burning and stomping on pictures of Bersih chairperson Ambiga Sreenevasan before holding a press conference on the matter.

Anwar “GE13-People Decides …!”

Posted: 19 Jun 2011 07:56 AM PDT

Our last article the people power decides we said,"Of course its the people who will decide as when they have done it each and everyone of the 222 elected Parliamentarians will be the peoples choice. Its just ironic that at the PKR Shah Alam Convention Anwar is telling the whole world that Pakatan will win the GE13. The titled article by the internet portal seems to have challenged the BN to fight back-Anwar: BN no match for Pakatan, GE-13 is the best opportunity to win  

What do you sincerely and honestly think BN will do? Sit Back and Get hammered..?? Or Better still let the People Decide….

We shall see as the challenge has been thrown towards BN…

The article:- Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim said Prime Minister Najib Razak's BN was no match for the Pakatan Rakyat and the time had come to finally win the federal government in the 13th general election, widely expected to held within the next few months.

Anwar, who is de-facto head of both the PKR party and Pakatan coalition, said BN had clung on because it cheated and used all forms of unfair means to win. This was why it feared the Bersih 2.0 anti-election fraud rally slated for July 9.

Anwar also said if Najib could promise he would hold free and fair elections, he would recommend to Bersih chairman Ambiga Sreenevasan to call off the rally. But the likelihood of the Najib administration acceding to the Bersih's 9 demands for transparency are as good as zero.

"BN cannot debate us on governance or the economy, but only try to divide us," said Anwar.

He added that despite the obstacles thrown in their way, Pakatan and PKR survived because they had "the programmes".

The Opposition Leader and Permatang Pauh MP was speaking at the PKR election convention held in Shah Alam on Sunday. More than 4,000 delegates thronged the hall and the mood of elation and barely suppressed excitement could be felt as election fever gripped the party.

Earlier, secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution told delegates that the time had come for Malaysia to finally emerge from a dark age of feudalism and corruption dominated by the UMNO elite.

"It's development time for Malaysia, it's Anwar time for Malaysia," Saifuddin said to thunderous applause from the hall.

Best opportunity

Pakatan came to power in 2008, sweeping control of 5 of Malaysia's 13 states and denying BN its long-held two-thirds majority in Parliament.

In the past three years, Najib and his UMNO party have focused on how to wrest back these states which included jewels Selangor and Penang through the use of all ways and means and at "all costs".

To maintain the upperhand, Najib also fully exploited the judiciary, tarnishing its credibility which is now at the lowest ebb following the Perak power grab. None of the other instututions such as the police, the MACC, the media, the civil service and even the government hospitals hold much traction with the people anymore, as Najib also bent them to his will in order to show his might over the Pakatan.

But the more the PM applied his strong-arm tactics and the more unprofessional the institutions became, the more the people rejected him and his UMNO party. Even the economy has suffered with few large investors willing to put their money here until credibility in the country's system was restored.

Anwar told delegates the 13th General Election was the "best opportunity" to form the federal government as the Pakatan needed just a five per cent swing in votes to win. In 2008, Pakatan won 47 per cent of the 8 million votes cast, while BN took the balance.

"We have come this far from 1999, 12 or 13 years is a very short time. Now we need just five per cent to change the Malaysian landscape. This is our best opportunity, not just for Pakatan but for the people to change the government," Anwar said.

Focus on election, not on whether I am jailed, says Anwar

Among obstacles that BN has thrown in Pakatan's way include manifestly fabricated sodomy charges against Anwar, which he has denied and accused Najib and wife Rosmah of plotting, the Datuk T sex video conspiracy by 3 UMNO members with close links to Najib and ex-premier Mahathir Mohamad, the innumerable attacks against DAP and the Penang state government as well as merger offers to PAS, which the Islamist party has rejected.

However, the most immediate risk is from the sodomy trial, where Malaysians generally expect Anwar to be jailed, just as Mahathir had imprisoned him for 6 years in 1998. Many pundits worry this will set back Pakatan as Anwar is regarded as the glue that holds the coalition together.

Even so, Pakatan top leaders have braced themselves for such an eventuality and PKR itself has strengthened its leadership structure with deputy president Azmin Ali poised to step in and help PKR president Wan Azizah run the party should Anwar be incarcerated again.

"Forget about whether Anwar is thrown in jail but just focus on the election," said Anwar.

He added that BN actually faced more problems than Pakatan and supporters should be confident their leaders can easily recapture their seats in the coming GE.

"Who doesn't know about inflation? Independent power producers? The Port Klang Free Zone? Teoh Beng Hock? Don't underestimate the wisdom of the people," said Anwar.

"Machang, Permatang Pauh, Merbok and Gombak were all Umno strongholds. But look what happened in 2008. So make sure you work hard because you don't want to lose by a small margin."

BN and Pakatan will be at each others back and the People will decide during GE13 of course it very much still depends on the CANDIDATES PRESENTED.. 

Nothing will escape the PEOPLE NOW…

BERSIH 2.0 Maybe The Catalyst For An Arab Style Jasmine Revolution In Malaysia!

1 Malaysia Bullshitter Bulbir Singh

By Admin

As it gets closer to the Bersih 2.0 Rally on July 9, 2011, the BN/Umno Regime of PM Najib Razak appear to be on panic mode. Apart from the 'sorties' of police reports by so-called 'concerned citizens' and 'NGO's', we are also heraing threats and intimidation being made by pro-Umno extremist groups such as PERKASA and PERKIDA. We have also seen the fake Malay wannabe Indian Muslims from KIMMA (Indian Muslim Congress of Malaysia) lending their voice to the chorus of 'opposition' against Bersih 2.0.

Threats have also being made by the braggart former Selangor Mamak CPO (another Indian Muslim masquerading as Malay) the current Deputy Inspector General of Police, Khalid Abu Bakar to use force on this peaceful gathering of Malaysians who are only exercising their democratic right.

What's disturbing is that we find so-called 'concerned citizens ' like the 1 Malaysia Bullshitter Bulbir Singh telling the Bersih 2.0 organizers to have the rally in a stadium. Why are you and your heroes from BN/Umno afraid of Bhaiya? Are you people afraid of the world media like Al Jazeera and the Rakyat seeing how the BN/Umno Police brutalizing peaceful citizens? Why the silence about PERKASA and Umno Youth going to the streets Bulbir? Best you spend time with your grandchildren Bhaiya, rather than to earn curses from Malaysian at the twilight of your life.

The Scribe gets the feeling that a police crackdown on Bersih 2.0 on July 9 may well turn into a popular uprising lile what is happening in the Middle East where the Opposition had very little to do with it. Who knows, we may have a regime change even without going into GE13!

Malaysians pay more than Sings do for imported rice

Posted: 18 Jun 2011 10:45 PM PDT

Two weeks ago I posted Cronyism, where I asked:

What is cronyism? […]

In the Malaysian case, cronyism is more about commercial awards with outrageous terms, usually at the expense of the rakyat […]

… for example, such as the disgraceful extent of the government's refusal to make public the contractual terms the government had signed with the IPP, and outrageously declaring the contracts as classified.

What is the BN government hiding?*

* er ... just a rhetorical question, meaning we know the answer to it, wakakaka

Ask yourself whether today's The Malaysian Insider's
Ku Li: Putrajaya should rethink economic policies as income gap widens suggests another act of cronyism?

In TMI news article, Tengku Razaleigh ...
criticised Malaysia for being the only rice producing country that has privatised rice production and given it to politically-linked Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary's company Padiberas Nasional Bhd (Bernas) a monopoly over the market.

He said: The reality today is Thailand and Indonesia are self sufficient in rice and we are 30 per cent dependent on imported rice. But because it is a monopoly, imported rice is cheaper in Singapore than Malaysia. Privatisation for the benefit of private individuals to profit from such an essential commodity is a clear abuse of power.

If only non-Malay Malaysians eat rice, I can at least understand (if not disagree with) a BN favoured individual being allowed to monopolize the provision of rice, an essential commodity.

But don't Malays eat rice too? So, via this rice monopoly, hasn't someone f* the Malays up kau kau, forcing them to buy rice at prices far more expensive than what a Singaporean, a citizen of a non-rice producing nation, needs to pay for imported rice?

I hope those ├╝ber Ketuanan Melayu types like Ibrahim Ali and his Perkasa, Pembela, Utusan Malaysia and Awang Selamat, Big Dog, etc would say something about this.

Thus, may I just reiterate, that in the Malaysian case, cronyism is more about commercial awards with outrageous terms, usually at the expense of the rakyat

… and the rakyat of this country, our nation, naturally includes the Malays.

Why man-hole? Why NOT a WOMAN-HOLE?

Posted: 18 Jun 2011 08:41 PM PDT

Ah, I got thy attention, didn't I?

Before I proceed, can I ask that anywan with an extreme gender-equality gene in his/her system, please don't read on. My post may contain thoughts that can upset you sensitive sex chromosomes such that we become enemies for life. You don't wanna want dat,do you? UNLESS of course you are a diehard RPK clone or fanor fannie, or whatever!?

Okaynot that I have 4warned awe my ER, whom I hold in HI esteem, I will cuntinue, with DDC wordpray et al.

Yesterday I read about a CPO -- hey,that's for chief police officer-lah, why you have to ask wan? -- tripping over a man-hole and having to seek medical treatment; if I recall rightly or leftly, he was admitted a couple of days. To a hospital-lah, knot an asylum-lah2! Why you have to interrupt Desi so off10?

As I was saying, the news item at the Furong main Pasar yesterday brought back memories. Bad. Badder than if it didn't bring back any -- I could have died. Yes, I also tripped over a man-hole -- at that time I was working freelance -- some bosses interpret that to mean "free of charge", hence wouldn't even pay RM200 for five articles well-writ -- despite Desi chasing for five fool months.

Okay,enough digression/aggression, so at that time I had just left the Moon newspaper for short period 0-- no,it'sknot about that monthly routine, it doesn't apply, Cos Desi was born "male" -- it stated that the lust time I looked. At the birth cert-lah, where else you donkey!

So it brought back bad memories -- I didn't tell the Press about it -- the act of my foot beng cai-ught in that iron-grip protruding ear as I headed for the phone booth three metres from it. I know THREE cos i fell headstraight4thebooth, and was about 1-1/3metres short of hitting it. I was 1-2/3metres in height, so if you do a mental Sherlock Holmes deduction,you are quite near it-lah!

Back to my Q:WHY NOT A WOMAN-HOLE? Yes, why didn't those bra-burning feminists in England insist on the Oxford dick list it as a man-hole; woman-hole; person-hole, to be truly gendre unbiased?Why, why, why -- indeed WHY NOT call the damned dangerous orifice cover an IT-HOLE? As far as I know, I haven'tcome across one man-, woman-, erson-, it-hole having a life of its own. Maybe Alfred Hitchcock/Hirchhen? didn't have such a rich imagine as Desi'safter all -- he thought of prettywoman-attacking Birds, neber thought about women-swalling man-holes. CPO- swallow yes1; newsdogNAMEDdesi-swallow yes2 BUT KNOT LadyInRed-Swallow Hole! (starring Julia Roberts course -- why knot July Roberto indeed?)

So before Oxford dick -- which is short for Dictionary, why you dared not aRsEk wan? -- update its sext edition next March 15, Imust send this entry to the bookmakers and politely request they modernise their vocab and do the right thing by the CPO and Desi.

Meanw'ile, anyone has that number of the poor CPO -- pass to Desi can? I am gonna suggest we link up to sue the council buggers for a million bucks/buckeroos so we can retire gracefully. Not having tochurn out artTICKLES like this wan to catch some newspaper pub'ic eye to use it for love/laff/cough so Desi can chase for that RM200 payment for another S'X months. I was once reported to have been paid RM1k per article, but yet my account is seeing red.Too much of Julia Roberts I hgas:(

Visage of non-existent buildings and mountains appearing in China?

Posted: 18 Jun 2011 08:10 PM PDT

How does one explain this phenomenon … buildings and mountains suddenly appearing in mist above a river in China after days of continuous rainfall?

This cannot be a mirage, which under normal circumstance only happens in hot desert-like condition giving the illusion of the existence of water.

So what is this? Is it a display of China's sophisticated hologram technology in preparation of its people against a false UFO attack or perhaps there's a leak of differing timelines taking place? It's a very strange world we are living in these days.

Masa Zunar keluarkan katun bawah ini, kenapa semua diam?

Zunar samakan makluk dengan tuhan dan nabinya. Bukankah ada implikasi aqidah?

Please link Star-LRT to Putrajaya, Najib!

Posted: 18 Jun 2011 06:14 PM PDT

I took a few South Korean friends to Putrajaya recently. Like most foreign visitors, they were much impressed with the well-planned and modern city.

However, at Parcel D which houses the Home Ministry, the MACC and the Human Resource Ministry, among others, I was caught in a tight situation. After seeing the steps which go down to the basement of the entrance, they asked: "Where do the steps lead to?"

My simple answer was: "The LRT station."

"But where is the station?," one of them asked.

"They have to build the rail first."

"But why aren't they building it?"

These are questions that I was not supposed to attend to. Former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi should. However, since he is no longer with the government, its Datuk Seri Najib's responsibility to answer it now, should anybody asks him.

And I told my Korean friends that Najib was busy planning for his 'legacy' project, the MRT from Sungai Buloh to Kajang which will cost about RM3.6 bilion. As to whether he 'likes to continue' with the Seri Petaling-Putrajaya Star-LRT project, the foreigners felt that it was necessary for Putrajaya to have such a link.

Of course, I agree. Former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has started the project during his tenure and a few stations are already in place for Putrajaya. TDM hope Pak Lah would proceed with it but the man he chose to replace him had, in fact booted out many of his plans.

I was made to understand that Najib himself will launch the MRT (from Mass Rapid Transit, it is now known as My Rapid Transit) next month at the Kuala Lumpur Concention Center. The government has yet to appoint any contractor but I personally believe the Prime Minister should reconsider connecting Putrajaya with the Star-LRT.

Yes, we have a bus service plying the Administrative City but it is not as frequent as hoped. And what will happen to the existing LRT stations there? To serve as bunkers?

Anwar: Tiada tempat untuk yang 'merengek' di AMK

Posted: 18 Jun 2011 01:00 PM PDT

Beliau juga menggesa AMK terus bekerja sedaya upaya dengan menyusun jentera serta turun ke akar umbi untuk berdepan dengan BN dengan penuh yakin dalam pilihan raya umum itu. "Kita perlu berubah, (pemimpin yang) tak yakin duduk di barisan belakang, (pemimpin yang) yakin duduk di barisan hadapan. "Orang (yang yakin) di barisan hadapan, pimpinan (AMK yang) kurang yakin, tolak ke belakang," tegasnya. Menurutnya, syarat tersebut turut diaplikasi kepada pemimpin AMK di semua peringkat termasuk di peringkat pusat atau negeri. Oleh itu, Anwar menggesakan ketua AMK Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin - yang hadir dalam himpunan itu - mengkaji kepemimpinan AMK di semua peringkat yang mempunyai tahap keyakinan tinggi untuk diketengahkan ke hadapan.
