Raub MP Ng Yen Yen today said that there is no cause for concern for the villagers of Bukit Koman adding that she had already looked into the matter three years ago.
“I met the residents, I met the committee, I brought up the specialist to see them, everything had been done (three years ago),”
She added that she had maintained her silence on the matter because when “people refuse to listen to scientific facts, one cannot talk reason”.
Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, T Murugiah, on Thursday had given the green light to RAGM for the usage of cyanide in the mining process.
Ng said that the matter was closed with Murugiah’s statement.
“There were some fish in the area. If there are traces of cyanide, the fish will die first. But the fish were still there.”
When Ng had pointed this out to the residents, they had answered: “(We think) the fish were just placed there (a moment ago), as a gimmick to mislead the residents.”
She said despite her consultation with the residents, “they still went on and on and on”.
They will continue to talk because their lives demand that they get listened to. It may take three years or more.
Three years ago you thought they believed you.
Three years, many things can happen.
Three years ago you thought we did not know you got Australian PR.
Three years ago you in BN did not know what hit you on 080308.
Three years ago Altantuya was still alive.
Three years ago you would not believe that the Star will feature Dottie every day (with pictures).
Three years ago I didn't even start blogging.
Three years ago I did not believe that I would be arrested for wearing black.
IN THREE YEARS TIME, YOU WILL LOSE YOUR RAUB SEAT, NO?
Three years ago, the people of Kampong Bukit Koman, did not believe that that RAGM was going to start operations in February 2009
.....so that is why they said......
