Four senior DAP leaders responded but no questions answered

BNSC MEDIA STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



1. We are encouraged that four senior DAP responded to our statement on Sunday questioning if Penang is on a path to a failed state or bankruptcy.

2. Penang EXCO YB Chow Kon Yeow's response was merely to say f Penang is a failed state, the Federal government should call for a general election as soon as possible.

However, we are unsure how that answers our questions. 

3. YAB Lim Guan Eng was next to reply. He claimed that Penang had only registered revenues of RM657.6mil from land sales from 2008 to 2015.

4. YAB Lim's reply has raised many questions from people who remembered YAB Lim praising the sale of RM1.07 billion worth of sate land in Bayan Mutiara in the year 2011. Or the sale of RM484 million of land in Batu Kawan to Aspen Vision in 2014 saying that the entry of IKEA to sell furniture to Penang people would be an economic game-changer for the state.

5. Questions were also raised as YAB Lim was reported on 16 December 2016 to have confirmed that the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) had sold RM1.94 billion in land from 2008 to 2015,  

6. Most are aware that PDC is 100% owned by the Penang Government thus many are curious why YAB Lim still claim that Penang only registered RM657.6mil in revenues from state land.

7. We are also dismayed that YAB Lim did not want to challenge our claim that as much as RM37 billion of state land, land rights and assets have been sold or traded away since 2008 and take up our offer for us to show him our list for him to confirm or dispute.

8. DAP Supremo YB Lim Kit Siang's reply however was that Penang will not fail but Malaysia will become a failed state instead - a claim that Kit Siang had repeated since the 1960s including in a 1978 book of his titled "Timebombs in Malaysia". 

9. Malaysians have been waiting 50 years for Kit Siang's much-repeated prophecy of Malaysia becoming a failed state.

However, a key question would be if Malaysia is set to become a failed state and bankrupt then how is the Federal Government going to guarantee the billions in loans from China's EXIM Bank that YAB Lim Guan Eng wants to borrow for the state?

10. Penang Deputy Chief Minister II YB P.Ramasamy also responded by claiming that Penang has been saved by DAP.  As proof, YB P.Ramasamy said that DAP had educed 95% of Penang's state debt. 

11. However, YB P.Ramasamy had neglected to explain that it was the Federal Government who in 2011, had converted a RM655 million debt of Penang into annual lease payments over 45 years - which means the state actually ends up paying the same RM655 million amount - that allowed the Penang State Government to boast a 95% reduction in state debt.

In fact, YAB Lim had issued a press statement to thank Prime Minister YAB Najib Razak and the Federal Government for this assistance.

12. We are disappointed that despite four top DAP leaders responding to our statement with various rhetoric and diversion, none of our questions were actually answered. We repeat them in brief here:

a)  Is it true that the Penang Govt has sold or traded away at least RM37 billion worth of state land, land rights and assets since DAP took over in 2008? 

b)  Is it true that there is not much state land left to sell as stated by Penang EXCO YB Chow Kon Yeow last year?

c). Is it true that the cost of the Penang Transport Masterplan Project has increased in price from RM27 billion to RM46 billion over the past year as stated by YB Chow Kon Yeow?

d) Is it true that the Penang State Govt will resort to bank borrowings to make-up the RM19 billion gap between RM27 billion and RM46 billion as was stated by YB Chow in his interview with The Edge last July?

e). Did the Penang Govt recently diverted funds from the state reserves as emergency loans of RM609 million to the state-owned Penang Development Corp, which has seen its profits plunge by 80% in recent years and another RM30 million to the Penang Water Supply Corporation (PBA)?

All these questions are relevant to the future of Penang and its people - especially in light of the recent confirmation by the State Government that yearly state operating expenses have increased 500% since DAP took over in 2008.

Perihal Elaun Keraian Kakitangan Kerajaan

ELAUN KERAIAN
BAGI pegawai-pegawai kerajaan gred 43 ke atas, mereka di peruntukkan dengan elaun keraian yang merupakan sebahagian daripada pendapatan mereka. Elaun minima RM400 sebulan di kecualikan daripada cukai pendapatan.

Imbuhan Tetap Keraian yang diberikan kepada pegawai dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan Tertinggi dan pegawai tertentu dalam Kumpulan Pengurusan dan Profesional merupakan elaun yang dibayar atas kadar tetap secara bulanan.

Tujuan pemberian Imbuhan Tetap Keraian adalah sebab jawatan dan tanggung jawab pegawai memerlukan mereka meraikan tetamu bagi mewujudkan suasana ramah mesra. -- FAQ SSM oleh JPA

Namun pada kebiasaannya, Imbuhan Tetap Keraian ini hanya digunakan untuk meraikan diri sendiri ataupun keluarga sendiri sahaja ataupun untuk membayar hutang-hutang peribadi sahaja.

Andai kata ada tetamu yang datang ke pejabat dan mereka di jamu, itu adalah dari perbelanjaan pejabat. Malahan ada pejabat yang membayar makan minum tetamu yang diraikan di hotel/restoran menggunak…

#SIAPA_ARAH_BUNUH_ALTANTUYA?

(By: Ariff Ahmad)
Walaupun Kerajaan Australia telah bersetuju untuk membenar Sirul dibawa pulang ke Malaysia tetapi reaksi Mahathir terhadap isu tersebut adalah seperti dia tidak berminat untuk membenarkan Sirul Azhar pulang ke Malaysia (sila rujuk FAKTA 1).  
Mengapa Mahathir tidak berapa bersetuju dengan cadangan tersebut. Untuk memahaminya, maka kita perlu rujuk kepada sejarah pembelian kapal selam tersebut.
Mengikut siasatan saya, Rancangan untuk membeli kapal selam telah mula dibahas di Parlimen seawal tahun 1993 lagi (sila rujuk pada beberapa SCREENSHOT HANSARD dibawah). Persoalannya ialah, jika Mahathir sebagai Perdana Menteri merangkap Menteri Kewangan berkata dia tidak tahu tentang rancangan hendak membeli KAPAL SELAM, jadi apa yang Mahathir buat semasa isu tersebut dibahas di Parlimen. DIA TIDUR AGAKNYA  
Ini adalah fakta-fakta tentang siapa yang terlibat didalam pembelian kapal selam Scorpene
👉1) Yang mencadangkan pembelian kapal selam ialah
a) Mokhzani Mahathir dan 
b) Ibrahim M…

APA SEBENARNYA TUN MAHATHIR MAHU?

TS Zeti dan Tun Daim telah mengakui ekonomi negara kekal kukuh dan rezab simpanan negara mempunyai rm436 billion, tertinggi dalam sejarah negara!
Terbaru Tun Mahathir telah membuat kenyataan yang mana 1MDB ...penubuhan siasatan diRaja ( RCI ) tidak perlu kerana tiada bukti kukuh untuk disabitkan kesalahan pada Najib.
Kini semuanya sudah nyata dan jelas..100% sebelum ini isu2 tersebut telah di politikkan kerana ada sesuatu yang tersembunyi hanya Najib dan Mahathir sahaja yang mengetahui.
Dulu Mahathir kata Najib dan kerajaan BN perlu ditumbangkan untuk menyelamatkan negara dari MUFLIS  dan juga tak mahu aset2 negara dijual ke negara luar. 
Malah dengan konsisten mengatakan Najib penyamun dan pencuri harta rakyat serta mengayakan keluarga mereka.
Hanya 5 hari sahaja Mahathir dapat kuasa..segalanya sudah terjawab hanya dengan kenyataan Zeti dan Daim sahaja.
Adakah Mahathir jujur dengan perjuangan agama bangsa dan negara?
Dalam sejarah satu permainan politik yang amat kotor...fitnah, pembohongan…
