KDN preys on 6P agents
It was Tuesday, Aug 23 2011. At 4pm, Home Ministry's sec-gen Mahmood Adam called about 200 6P agents for a briefing. It was only a week earlier that he called for a similar briefing to 'screw' the agents appointed by the ministry to assist the government with the program.
KDN didnt treat the agents as its clients. No respect, no appreciation. As most of them are 'Melayu', so the 'Melayu' at KDN simply preys on the other 'Melayu' by turning them into a bunch of 'idiots'.
On top of that, I have heard remarks such as "Siapa suruh awak semua sign nak jadi agen?", "Biarkan dia orang tak buat duit, diorang ingat tugas ni boleh jadi kaya ke..." and "Padan muka agen ni semua!" It came from KDN and the Immigration Department's high ranking officers.
Wahhh lann!!!! You appointed them to assist you but you prey on them... your own agents whom you should treat as the ministry's clients!
Are you aware that out of 330 agents you appointed, about 100 had given up. Why? Read this:
First, you said these agents will only register and thumbprint the illegals in the country. Then you waived off the fee for the illegal Banglas too (KDN estimated them at around 500,000 but they are actually close to 1 million). What's so special about the Banglas? I though we are much closer to the Indonesians than to the Banglas?
Its ok. But then Mahmood issued a directive to the Immigration Dept to register the illegals for free. And that was NOT OK. Agents were deprived of the RM35 per head fee. Do you know that some agents already spent more than RM100,000 to rent the stupid-and-suppose-not-to-be-that-expensive machines? What happens to the RM1 billion the government has paid for it... and who got the contract?
This led to many agents had to close shop. Many couldnt afford the machines. A few had to seek help from 'ah longs'.
So, many illegals who have been 'wooed' by the agents had run away to the Immigration Offices nationwide. I would like to urge the MACC to investigate some Immigration officers who are making tonnes of money for appointing their own 'runners' to bring in the illegals to register with them. It is free on paper but they impose charges to speed up the registration. The gain will be split by half - the officers and runners share it.
Again, its NOT RIGHT. And quite recently, KDN allowed the Post Office and the MYEG website to register the illegals... also for free.
And at yesterday's briefing, Mahmood Adam issued a stern warning to agents with the thumbprint machines to return it to NERS between Sept 1-4 once the registration process completes on August 30.
I dont know what's got into him. I have known him ever since he was with Mindef and as DG of the Immigration Dept. He was a nice, humble person... dedicated and helpful. However, since his contract with the Home Ministry was extended recently, he is a changed person. I am not able to find the right word to describe him!
Sept 1-4 is Hari Raya, sir! Public Holidays. Many believe Prime Minister Najib will declare an extra public holiday on Friday Sept 2 should Hari Raya falls on Wednesday Aug 31. What is he up to? Does Minister Hishammuddin know about it?
(I attended one press conference by Mahmood recently. Before it got started, he reminded reporters that he was no longer a Datuk Seri but a Tan Sri...).
DBKL preys on Raya shoppers
Also Tuesday, around 4pm. Raja Nongchik visited the Bazar Ramadan in Lorong Tunku Abdul Rahman.
Its a normal atmosphere every 'puasa month'. Traders and shoppers have been able to tolerate it. No complaint.
When the minister was making his rounds, DBKL's enforcement officers were busy issuing summons to any vehicles parked on both sides of Jalan TAR. Fine, and I agree as 4-9pm is a busy period. They were obstructing traffic flow.
However, the officers got busier after 9.30pm. They were not only issuing summons but also towed away dozens of cars and other vehicles parked at the lane behind Coliseum.
There are two parking lots which can accommodate about 400 vehicles along the lane. Not sufficient. Some had to park at further places and had to walk about 500 to 1,000 meters to the Bazar Ramadan. The back lane is a familiar and easier spot for parking, especially for shoppers who bring along their babies and parents who cant walk that far.
At about 10.30pm, I saw some people crying over their 'lost' vehicles. A few women were carrying babies and kids aged between 2-4 years old. I also saw six elder couples aged between 60-75 sitting by the road side, wondering how to get home. A couple came a long way from Seremban.
Where is DBKL's human senses? Why didnt you use your jurisdiction? They were not obstructing traffic on the main Jalan TAR! They are all 'Melayu' shoppers in their Hari Raya mood! Are you human or what?
Ahhh.... before I forgot. Where would Nongchik pee if he feels the urge? The only public toilet is about 500 meters away. I still keep the SMS sent by one of his senior officials to a Harian Metro's reporter who alerted him about my blog post last week.
He said that I didnt do my homework. Ha ha ha.... he fell into my trap. Since you mentioned 'homework', let me ask you this - after more than 30 years manning the Bazar Ramadan, dont tell me that DBKL didnt complete its homework to install a few makeshift toilets in that area?
Dont talk nonsense laaarr bro! You people are just like the cannibals, eating your own brothers' flesh!
I think in this two cases, Barisan Nasional will lose many votes in the coming general elections. PM Najib will be in big trouble... and so will Hisham and Nongchik!
