If they fail to save the village, Pakatan Rakyat’s objective has failed and we will know what to do in the next general election,” said Penang Island Hindraf Coordinator K. Kalaiselvam, 34.
Lim, who questioned whether the movement had been “infiltrated by Barisan Nasional collaborators”, also called on former Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon to give a full public explanation on why he sold the land at a “cheap price” of only RM10 per square feet and without consulting the residents.
Was Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng right in side stepping the issue and try to drag former Chief Minister Koh Tsu Koon into the fracas?
Every succeeding government is responsible to take over and take care of what its predecessor had done, right or wrong. You can't run back to the previous administration, it's you baby now, take care of it.
Needless to say you have to take over both good and bad policies of the previous administration.Unless, there is criminality involved, in which case the law should take care of the problem , Lim Guan Eng calling on Dr Koh Tsu Koon to give full public explanation goes to show his obvious perplexity and inexperience in the running of government.
Government needs not consult residents every time it gives away land for development and for Lim to suggest so again shows his ignorance and inexperience.
Would he constantly consult the people every time he gives away land, projects or any dealings of the state government? You are elected by the people and they have given you the mandate to rule, just do your job and stop harping on past mistakes.It is your job to rectify if you feel mistakes have been made in the past.
Unless, Lim can prove there have been corruptions involved in the giving away of the land, in which case, he should report the matter to the MACC, it was very silly of him to call Koh to give public explanation.He is the Chief Minister now, it's for him to explain and resolve the problem.
Since when squatters have the rights to demand possession of state land they squatted on.The court have issued an order of eviction, therefore, those Hindraf leaders are breaking the law by instigating the villagers to demonstrate.
The right thing for Lim to do is to command the police to arrest the Hindraf leaders for instigating the villagers to cause public disturbance.Their refusal to move out is tantamount to contempt of court.
If many others have accepted exgratia payment from the land owner and moved out, it is obvious those remaining squatters are trying to squeeze more money from the developer, more than what they deserved.
It's typical of Pakatan playing the blame game.Blame the BN for any of their troubles.Now, he says Hindraf is infiltrated by Barisan Nasional troublemakers?
Cancelling the project would incur costs beyond the financial capability of the state government,” Lim said, chiding Hindraf for “not being able to distinguish who its friends and opponents are” and being blinded by rage and anger.
Now you know what these people are capable of doing.When they gave trouble to the BN government you blindly supported them. What do you make of Hindraf now that they are trying to break down your front door.
After the fall-out with Penang PKR and now Hindraf, what next Mr Lim?
Just slightly over a year you were already making unpopular decisions.The BN took almost 50 years before the chickens come home to roost.
Here, like father like son, father singing the same song.Incompetents looking for scapegoat.
