Snobbish!

Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim says whoever the contractor for Langat 2 water treatment plant is, will eventually has to face his office.

What a snobbish way of handling the issue!
 "The exco has discussed the issue. The Federal Government's decision to open tender is because it has a responsibility on the matter, but the state government wants to remind bidders and the Federal Government that the state has certain powers as stipulated in the Constitution and National Land Code. The state government wants to remind everyone that it will protect this responsibility. You (Langat 2 bidders) know the cost and boundaries..."
After all difficulties faced by the people, Khalid still wants to play marshal to effort taken up by the Federal Government in finding solution to the woes.


I believe in matters like these, the State and Federal should work hand-in-hand. Politics and personal interest aside, the project must be co-supervised as it benefits everybody.

Selangor is already on the verge of a water crisis and this is all due to the rapid economic development in the state which has outstripped the infrastructure available at the moment, and the Langat 2 plant can address the issue.

Two years ago, Selangor's water reserves stood at 6.0 per cent but had dropped to less than 3.0 per cent this year, compared to the ideal reserves of 10 per cent.

Khalid had recently said irrespective of the federal government’s decision to push ahead with the tender offer for the treatment plant, the Selangor government still reserved the right to approve the plans for the RM8.65 billion project.

Although he had given his assurance that the state would not interfere with the federal government’s plans, Khalid said all state agencies such as the land offices, local authorities, Forestry Department, Irrigation and Drainage Department, Selangor Water Management Board (Luas ) and the Environment Department had been ordered to forward all applications regarding the project directly to him.

“You can offer the tender, but when you make the plans, you have to bring it to the state government for approval.”

Again, why can't both sides - the State and Federal - form a committee to look into it? Why only Selangor?

Or is Khalid having something up his sleeves?

selangor pakatan rakyat wants to have a total control of the project. means that the fed will have no final say except in calling for the tender.

with the project in their hands, khalid and gang can do anything they want, including holding the contractors by their balls to abide to any rule imposed.

imposing strict conditions will eventually see the project taking a longer period to complete, after taking into account the percentage selangor state govt wants from it!

we should learn how PKNS imposes up to 40 per cent kickback from any of its project!

salam tn,

janganlah kita angkuh dan sombong sebagai pemimpin.

sama ada kita di pihak kerajaan atau pembangkang, pemimpin perlulah sedia bertolak ansur dan bekerjasama dengan sesiapa pun demi kepentingan dan kebajikan rakyat.

cara tan sri khalid ni sedikit keterlaluan kerana ingin menunjukkan kuasanya kepada orang lain.

tidak perlulah sebegitu, tan sri.

yang memberi kuasa ialah rakyat, jadi berkhidmatlah dengan jujur kepada rakyat!

jadi, tak payahlah nak mengata dia!
