Between 2008 and 2010, the number of registered drug addicts in Pulau Pinang increased from 1,622 in 2008 to 3,753 in 2010.
Tokong’s Political Secretary Wong Hon Wai must have been smoking something when he told reporters yesterday that Pulau Pinang has better anti-corruption initiatives than that of the MACC. Probably, he has been breathing the same air as the Tokong for far too long and has become as delusional, or psychopathic, as the Tokong has.
He said that since 2008, when DAP first came to power in Penang, it had adopted 10 initiatives to show its commitment to be a corruption-free state. They include:
Selling off government land in exchange for the opportunity for an under-priced purchase of a bungalow on Jalan Pinhorn by Tokong…okay, it has no swimming pool;
Award projects to a company that has a paid-up capital 1,900 percent below the level stated in the government guideline;
Allowing the Chief Minister to practice corruption and have him charged in court for graft;
Pay a company 400 times more than the scheduled fees according to the Board of Engineers for a feasibility study.
Construct the 19.5km Penang Island Link 1 (PIL-1) at RM7.5 billion, or RM385 million per km;
Increase water tariffs several times since coming into power in 2008 to cover the 500 percent increase in the State Government’s annual operating expenditure;
Allowing Kumpulan PDC Pulau Pinang (Penang Development Corporation) to register a pre-tax loss of RM17.18 million in 2015 despite selling off RM1.94 billion worth of government land since 2008;
Pulau Pinang’s only affordable housing project gets planning approval from Majlis Bandaraya Pulau Pinang within 233 days; the Federal Government’s affordable housing project gets its planning approval from the MBPP in 516 days; yet a luxury condominium project built on a former government land given as payment to the company that has been awarded the Penang Tunnel project had its approval done by MBPP in just EIGHT (8) DAYS;
The Klang Valley’s 37km LRT3 project which includes 2km of tunnel costs RM9 billion, or RM243 million per km. Yet Pulau Pinang’s 30km LRT cost is at RM8.4 billion or RM280 million per km. This went up by RM1.4 billion from the previous year;
Suing every journalist that questions or highlight the lack of integrity of the Pulau Pinang State Government.
So, if the standard of anti-corruption in Pulau Pinang is higher, then Wong Hon Wai should just tell the state government to sign the MACC’s pledge because there should not be any compliance issue.
Monkeys jump easily. Especially pet monkeys. This includes the ones kept by the Tokong to pick coconuts and lice for him.
Today one such pet jumped when the MACC asked for the Pakatan and Opposition states to take an anti-corruption pledge.
In a opposition-leaning Malaysiakini report, Saifuddin who is Tokong’s adviser on God-knows-what chastised the direction in which Dzulkifli Ahmad is leading the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), questioning if he was out to become a politician or celebrity.
“What the country needs is a MACC chief who is effective and substantive, not a celebrity,” said Tokong’s pet. “People did not want public relation exercises in the form of pledges.”
Tokong’s pet was responding to MACC Chief Dzulkifli Ahmad’s push for Penang, Selangor and Kelantan to sign MACC’s anti-corruption pledge.
It also questioned that despite MACC’s apparent blitz against those involved in corruption, how many had actually been convicted.
We know he is as eager as we are to know the verdict of Tokong’s corruption case.
The Menteri Besar of Selangor Azmin Ali also brushed aside Dzulkifli’s push for the pledge to be signed.
Azmin said Selangor had its own way in dealing with integrity and corruption issues which is why Teoh Beng Hock had to be silenced and various reports on corruption against Azmin’s administration have been made by PKR.’s own members.
While Tokong’s pet was busy criticising the MACC’s effort to combat corruption, the MACC raided the FELDA Investment Corporation office and seized some documents to investigate alleged corruption activities involving the senior management of the GLC.
Works Minister Fadillah Yusof today issued a statement revealing that DAP Pulau Pinang’s Exco member Chow Kow Yeow had lied again about the cost of the consultation fees paid for three roads leading to the proposed Pulau Pinang Tunnel.
Fadillah said the DAP justification that the RM177.5 million payment was not an overprice as 10 additional components was just a double-counting as the 10 additional components mentioned by Chow Kow Yeow were found to be sub-componens of either the detailed environmental impact assessment (DEIA) or in the feasibility studies, or the detailed design.
His Ministry noted that that the total pre-construction consultancy fees for the 20km of roads is RM208.7 million where RM31.2 milion is for the feasibility studies and RM177.5 million is for the detailed design.
“Besides consultation fee, the RM177.5mil mentioned by Abdul Rahman was also used for 10 other job scopes,” said Chow at a press conference after visiting the Yayasan Belia Buddhist Malaysia head office in Jalan Seang Tek.
I suppose he muts have used the DAP’s version of Microsoft Excel to calculate the fees.
Nampaknya untuk mengalihkan perhatian terhadap tuduhan-tuduhan rasuah yang dilakukan oleh keraajaan Pulau Pinang pimpinan Lim Guan Eng, DAP mengkaldaikan ahli keluarga Teoh Beng Hock untuk mengajak orang ramai berdemo hari Jumaat ini (7 Julai 2017) membuat bantahan terhadap apa yang disifatkan sebagai sikap pilih kasih pihak SPRM kerana tidak membuat sebarang siasatan terhadap MO1.
Teoh Beng Hock telah ditemui mati setelah terjatuh dari pejabat SPRM Selangor yang berpusat ketika itu di Plaza Masalam di antara 3.45 pagi dan 1.30 tengahari pada 16 Julai 2009.
Teoh Beng Hock ketika itu ditahan SPRM untuk memberi keterangan mengenai kes penyelewengan peruntukan wang sebanyak RM2,400.00 yang telah dibayar oleh ADUN Seri Kembangan, Ean Yong Hian Wah yang merupakan majikan Beng Hock, untuk pembelian bendera sambutan Hari Kebangsaan tetapi tidak pernah diambil dari pembekal.
Wang tersebut juga telah disahkan BUKANNYA berasal dari 1MDB, dan jauh sekali ianya merupakan duit rakyat seperti yang digembar-gemburkan mereka yang tiada keupayaan untuk berfikir.
Kes 1MDB adalah jauh berbeza dengan kes yang melibatkan Teoh Beng Hock dan Ean Yong Hian Wah kerana kes mereka berdua benar-benar melibatkan wang rakyat dan konspirasi untuk pecah amanah. Inilah yang disiasat oleh pihak SPRM tetapi terbantut akibat kematian Beng Hock.
Jumlahnya tidaklah berbillion namun ianya melibatkan wang yang telah diamanahkan oleh rakyat tidak kiralah kecil atau besar jumlahnya. Kalau Teoh Lee Lan tidak faham apa itu amanah, jangan bertanya kepada Lim Guan Eng sebab beliau telah didakwa di mahkamah atas perlakuan rasuah.
2. SPRM TIDAK MENYIASAT WANG RM2.6 BILLION TETAPI MENAHAN TEOH BENG HOCK YANG KEMUDIANNYA MATI SEMASA DI DALAM TAHANAN MEREKA. IANYA SATU PERBUATAN YANG AMAT KEJAM
Teoh Lee Lan hanya mampu mengulangi kisah “RM2.6 billion” yang ternyata adalah wang yang telah didermakan. 1MDB telah disahkan sendiri oleh Jawatankuasa Kira-Kira Wang Negara yang keanggotaannya termasuk enam orang Ahli Parlimen dari pihak pembangkang sebagai tidak kehilangan sebarang wang.
Di antara enam orang Ahli Parlimen pembangkang yang dinyatakan di atas termasuklah juga seramai dua orang dari parti DAP, iaitu parti mendiang Teoh Beng Hock.
Dalam kes yang melibatkan mendiang Teoh Beng Hock, wang rakyat telah lesap begitu sahaja. Kononnya RM2,400 telah dibayar kepada pembekal bendera, namun tiada penghantaran bendera dilakukan.
Saya amat bersetuju bahawa perbuatan salahguna wang rakyat seperti dalam kes mendiang Teoh Beng Hock adalah suatu perbuatan yang amat kejam.
3. MENGAPA SPRM MENYIASAT SATU KES TETAPI TIDAK KES YANG LAIN? INI PERSOALAN YANG KAMI INGIN MEREKA JAWAB
Video selama 1 minit 42 saat ini sebenarnya membosankan. Jika kita lihat soalan yang ketiga ini, ianya tidak ada bezanya dengan soalan-soalan pertama dan kedua. Tetapi tidak mengapalah jika Teoh Lee Lan masih inginkan jawapannya.
Semasa Teoh Lee Lan masih bersedih, SPRM telah menyiasat dan membuat banyak tangkapan terhadap ramai orang tanpa mengira pangkat mahupun darjat.
Setakat ini ada lebih kurang 5,500 kenyataan media yang telah dikeluarkan oleh pihak SPRM mengenai aktiviti-aktiviti yang teah dijalankan oleh Suruhanjaya tersebut, termasuk kenyataan-kenyataan berhubung siasatan dan tangkapan kes-kes yang melibatkan perlakuan rasuah. Teoh Lee Lan boleh membaca kesemuanya apabila sudah hilang sedikit rasa sedih dan mata kurang kabur akibat terlalu banyak membaca skrip yang disediakan oleh pihak DAP.
Untuk mengetahui kenapa tiada tangkapan yang dibuat terhadap MO1 kerana kehilangan RM2.6 billion, saya harap Teoh Lee Lan boleh merujuk kepada jawapan saya kepada soalan pertama dan kedua.
4. AMALAN DWI-STANDARD SPRM TELAH MELEPASKAN MO1 DARIPADA PERTUDUHAN TETAPI TIDAK TEOH BENG HOCK
Sekali lagi, Teoh Lee Lan, para penyokong DAP boleh merujuk kepada jawapan saya kepada soalan-soalan satu hingga tiga di atas untuk kes RM2.6 billion. 1 MDB juga tidak kehilangan sebarang wang. Malah, Department of Justice Amerika Syarikat juga tidak menamakan MO1 sebagai orang yang terlibat disiasat oleh mereka.
Tidak ada satu pertuduhan pun yang dibacakan sama ada di Singapura mahupun tempat-tempat lain yang melibatkan konon-kononnya 1MDB ada menyebut perkataan “1MDB” dalam pertuduhan dan prosiding mahkamah mereka.
Sebagaimana Teoh Lee Lan ada persoalan, saya juga ada beberapa soalan untuk beliau:
1. TEOH BENG HOCK MATI KETIKA MEMBERI KETERANGAN MENGENAI SALAHGUNA WANG RAKYAT OLEH DAP. SIAPA YANG AKAN DITANGKAP SEKIRANYA BENG HOCK MASIH HIDUP DAN MENCERITAKAN KESEMUA MAKLUMAT YANG ADA PADA BELIAU?
2. SIAPA YANG MENERIMA MANFAAT POLITIK SEKIRANYA TEOH BENG HOCK HIDUP DAN SEMPAT MENCERITAKAN KEPADA SPRM MENGENAI MAKLUMAT-MAKLUMAT PENYELEWENGAN YANG BELIAU KETAHUI? BARISAN NASIONAL ATAU DAP?
3. SIAPA YANG MENERIMA MANFAAT SEKIRANYA TEOH BENG HOCK MATI SEBELUM SEMPAT MEMBERI MAKLUMAT MENGENAI PENYELEWENGAN WANG RAKYAT YANG DISYAKI DILAKUKAN OLEH WAKIL-WAKIL RAKYAT DAP?
Today, His Majesty The Sultan of Selangor attended the Selangor Hari Raya Open House held at the MPAJ field in Pandan Indah. In attendance was the Menteri Besar of Selangor, Azmin Ali. The event invitation to the Selangor people was posted by Azmin on his Facebook page on 29 June 2017. As with other states, Exco members, ADUNs and Members of Parliament are expected to attend.
His Majesty the Sultan attended the event together with Her Majesty The Tengku Permaisuri, and His Royal Highness The Raja Muda.
Where were the Selangor Excos, ADUNs and MPs?
Let us for instance try and locate Sivarasa Rasiah who was chided by His Majesty The Sultan for giving a ceramah in a mosque was nowhere to be seen. His last Twitter post was on the 18 June 2017. Maybe he was away in another mosque somewhere in Sarawak, giving a ceramah judging by his Twitter display photo.
Another famous for nothing MP from Selangor is Pony Tua. He too seems to be missing in action from the Selangor Open House, which is an event held for the Selangor people to celebrate Hari Raya together with His Majesty The Sultan of Selangor.
It seems that Pony Tua got all excited about another event held on the same day that has nothing to do with Selangor at all. As a matter of fact, it has to do with Pulau Pinang. Pony Tua was not promoting the event where HIS Sultan is attending, but was in fact promoting Tokong’s event!
Although Pony Tua did not specifically mention anything about it being Tokong’s event, take note that it was held at 1Utama Shopping Complex. There was another event, also held at the 1Utama on the same day as the Selangor Hari Raya Open House.
Wow! So, Tokong was in Petaling Jaya signing books instead of answering allegations made by the Barisan Nasional. The fact that the book signing was held at 1Utama, it can be safely assumed that Pony Tua was also there to support Tokong’s event instead of attending the Sultan’s event.
Some may say that it is coincidental, but Tokong and his artist called Tomato were there to sign the comic books. And guess who were there?
So, Pony Tua was supporting the event for the Tokong rather than attend the one with the Sultan. After all, it is the DAP that is in control of the Selangor State Government, not PKR as believed, so why should Pony Tua care?
Let us now check on the Speaker of the Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor, Hannah “Goat of God” Yeoh. Since she is the Speaker of the Dewan, she should be at least promoting the Hari Raya event as did Azmin Ali on 29 June 2017. Let us check her Facebook to see if that did happen.
Hannah likes to show those who voted for her events that she attended or promoted not just on Facebook but also on Twitter. Let us now check her Twitter account.
Perhaps a Hari Raya event is unChristian for the Goat of God. She wants to make sure that if Jesus had died on the cross for her, so should she.
So what was this I Heart Penang Run event? Apparently Tokong can no longer con the Penang Lang so he needs to con the Selangor people as well. So, this morning, he brought his Pulau Pinang people down to lead the Selangorians to run with him. Not only that, these suckers were fleeced by the Robbing Hood called Tokong by RM25 per person! Isn’t it odd asking Selangorians to pay RM25 to HEART Penang? Why not organise only in Pulau Pinang?
Steven Sim above was not just in Petaling Jaya for the Tokong do at 1Utama, he also participated in the run…with another Selangor MP, Ong Kian Ming! So, if all DAP MPs from Selangor was running for Tokong, who attended the Sultan’s event?
Truth be told, the DAP MPs and ADUNs of Selangor do not respect His Majesty The Sultan of Selangor. To them, Tokong’s position is higher than the Sultan’s. Tokong is the CON-SULTAN.
So, dear Steven, our Menteri Besar and other Chief Ministers do not feel the need to run. They have not done anything wrong, have not been charged in court for corruption, and do not run away from questions and allegations like the Tokong does. And I am still waiting for him to answer the questions and allegations made by the Barisan Nasional against him.
Until then, someone should keep the coffee warm for him.
Corrupt Minister Lim Guan Eng a.k.a Tokong must be pretty livid at being attacked left, right and center. We are not just talking about the attacks by members of his opponent parties, but also from his own party, the DAP.
Guan Eng was charged in court for corruption after abusing his position to purchase a RM4.7 million bungalow at No.25 Jalan Pinhorn for only RM2.8 million. This was in return for the sale of a state land at Taman Manggis to a developer linked to the bungalow.
On Tuesday, BN’s Abdul Rahman Dahlan questioned the Pulau Pinang DAP-led government’s act to overpay by 400 percent above the gazetted scale of fees the feasibility studies and detailed design fees to concession holders. Lim Guan Eng’s government paid RM31.3 million for the feasibility studies for 20.23 kilometers of road, and an additional RM177.5 million for the same for the detailed designs bringing the total paid to RM208.8 million.
This is way above the RM41 million calculated by the Malaysian Board of Engineers based on the gazetted scale of fees. The project was signed in late 2013 and was supposed to have commenced in 2015 to be completed in 2018. The project has yet to take off.
The 20.23 kilometers of roads are namely the 10.53km Tanjung Bungah-Teluk Bahang paired road; the 5.7km Lebuhraya Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu-Air Itam bypass and the 4km Lebuhraya Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu-Persiaran Gurney bypass.. These roads were supposed to be linked to the proposed Pulau Pinang undersea tunnel to the mainland which feasibility study has yet to be finalised despite the several changes of deadline.
The feasibility study for the undersea tunnel, promised to be completed at end of 2016 by Lim Guan Eng himself, has thus far cost RM305 million. In April 2017, the Tokong announced that the study is only 87 percent completed and would be submitted to the Works Ministry in October 2017.
Tokong has also come under fire for excessively destroying the environment from within the DAP ranks. Teh Chee Yau, the ADUN for Tanjung Bungah, has repeatedly protested the destruction of the environment namely the uprooting of old trees to make way for unnecessary widening of roads, as well as the sand dredging and reclamation projects offshore.
Veteran DAP lawmaker Tan Seng Giaw also voiced his concern against the excesses in Pulau Pinang in his Facebook and Twitter postings.
Perhaps, Tokong only knows how to use the Internet to spread lies on social media but does not know that besides searching for porn and spreading lies, the Internet could also be used to send messages through E-mail, WhatsApp and other media.
Tokong may be a bungling bungalow buyer, lying through his teeth and hope people will buy his lies. But you have to give it to him for believing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel he is not looking at. Perhaps, people in DAP and Pulau Pinang can help him see the light even better by giving him the boot.
In an incredibly amazingly stupid feat, the DAP has blamed the death of teenager Nhaveen on the Barisan Nasional federal government.
Jagdeep Singh Deo on his Facebook account said that “the crux of the matter is that the Federal Government has failed this family by not preventing this incident.”
Nhaveen died after being assaulted by other teenagers in DAP-run state, Pulau Pinang. He never regained consciousness.
How do you blame the Federal Government for something that happens in your backyard? Pulau Pinang is the only state that has its own Volunteer Patrol Force (Pasukan Peronda Sukarela) with the publicised aim to assist the Royal Malaysian Police to combat crime, on top of the already legally existing Volunteer Patrol Scheme of the Rukun Tetangga that was formed under the Rukun Tetangga Act.
However, the PPS is just the DAP’s version of Hitler’s Sturmabteilung (Storm Detachment) or more popularly known as the Braunhemden (Brown Shirts). The PPS, or Penyangak Purple Shirt, was used mainly to do DAP’s party works, intimidate the population, and stifle resistance.
Tokong’s purple mob assaulted Ong Eu Soon, a Pulau Pinang activist who has been outspoken towards Tokong’s government. Ong, who was at a newsvendor in Air Itam one night, was approached by ten PPS members including Lee Chan Kwong and Lee Yew Kuen who attacked him with their motorcycle helmet.
This is all ‘leadership by example.’ Just as how the Tokong believes he is above the law, the PPS thinks that they are licensed to eliminate resistance to Tokong’s administration. And just like Tokong who does not believe in press freedom, they too attacked journalists. A PPS member, Lim Ah Chye, was found guilty for attacking Guan Ming Daily’s Deputy Crime Chief, Ang Kean Siang, and destroying his camera. Ah Chye also harrassed Kean Siang and his girlfriend by threatening them with death should Kean Siang refuse to withdraw his police report.
PPS looks up to the Penang administration which is led and controlled by the DAP. DAP is famous for bullying not only its own members who go against Tokong’s wishes, but also representatives from its partner-parties into submitting to the wishes of the Tokong as the Chief Minister, a role Emperor Lim Kit Siang is said to want to fill in when his Tokong son goes to jail for corrupt practices.
The Tokong would do anything to stay in power in order to fulfill his greed no matter if he breaches the law and even the Federal Constitution. Therefore it is no wonder that even a Malaysian-born foreign citizen could knowingly be fielded as election candidates.
There are already those who want to curb Tokong’s excesses. DAP’s Tanjung Bungah rep as called for the Chief Minister’s term to be limited to only two terms, effectivly ending Tokong’s reign by the next general elections.
It is no secret that Tokong is trying to bully Tan Seng Giaw out of the political scene like Boo Cheng Hau of Johor has, and much like his bully-of-a-father the Emperor Lim Kit Siang who killed off those opposed to him in DAP namely Lee Lam Thye and Hu Sepang. Lee Lam Thye would have been the leader of the DAP had Lim Kit Siang not cheated and had the DAP election results his way. Lam Thye resigned from the DAP and politics.
So back to ‘leadership by example’ and the death of poor Nhaveen. If the Chief Minister of Penang could commit corrupted acts and go about acting innocent, what are sexual assault and bullying compared to that? It’s embedded in the Pulau Pinang genes now by its political leadership.
Therefore, the Pulau Pinang state government has itself to blame for bringing the culture of terror into the state and encouraged its citizens to behave like its leaders.
