AFTER 5 DECADES, CAN BN SEREMBAN GET DOWN TO BASICS?

WE are hardly out (albeit Zeti says we are) of the economic gloom and on the eve of the Bagan Pinang by-elections the PM unveiled grand plans of our own F1 team. Even the Singapore F1 show has seen a drastic trimming down of spendings by corporate sponsors and we are pumping millions into the Malaysian F1 dream team. Has the PM gone NUTS? (as in areca nut aka pinang) Areca nuts are chewed with betel leaf for their effects as a mild stimulant, causing a mild hot sensation in the body and slightly heightened alertness, although the effects vary from person to person.

The F1 money should be used for the rakyat of Bagan Pinang and Seremban. For 5 decades of rule they have done little. They have sidelined Bagan Pinang where the infrastructure is wanting. Buses ply the town, but getting out of the village to come into PD town can be a shore. And who lives outside PD? We are not asking for an F1 t4ack to be home for our dream team. Do what Selangor did for its citizens, hardly 6 months after taking over. The Selangor Government gave its citizens BENEFITS, and non-taxable benefits at that. Here is what they got!

Kudos to the Selangor

State Government

Thank you Selangor for taking steps the Federal Government should have taken. Maternity leave is now 90 days and the health of senior citizens is being looked after:

Female civil servants with the Selangor Government are now entitled to 90 days maternity leave starting this year. Announcing this yesterday, Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim said the extra days of leave was part of the state’s economic welfare programme.

“Husbands whose wives gave birth will also enjoy a 14-day paternity leave, up from a week previously. Female staff whose husbands pass away, will also get 30 days’ leave, compared to three days emergency leave in the past,” he told reporters after presenting appointment letters to more than 6,000 village committee members here yesterday.

The Pakatan Rakyat state government had proposed the extra days after it came into power last year.

On another matter, Khalid said Selangor was meeting with various groups, including insurance companies, to work out a plan to help the 300,000 to 400,000 senior citizens in the state to cope with their medical expenses.

Under the programme, senior citizens might only need to pay a maximum of RM5 each time they received treatment from a clinic, he said, adding that the elderly must, however, be registered with the state government.

The proposed Malaysia F1 is a mad idea and a grandiose scheme. Or shall I say scam. Are we so flushed with money that the government cannot find a good use for it? Millions, nay billions are going to waste again and we poor peasants are going to pay every sen of it.

now this is wat we called, "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, ...". YB Khalid u have set an exemplary state gomen for the rest to emulate! Bravo!

I attest to what was promised by the Selangor gov. My sister's mother-in-law just passed away recently. She submitted all the relevant documents to the PAS Paya Jaras service centre. To her surprise, the first RM1,000.00 was delivered within one week directly to her house in Sg. Buloh by a lady representative from PAS. It showed PAS does not discriminate the Chinese community. Bearing in mind, BN-Umno is the Paya Jaras current state assemblyman.

Bagan Pinang PKR just lost indian votes, thanks to smart Najib... MIC also die.

The Malaysian Insider) KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 24 — The invitation card is glossy, in gold colour and of superior quality, in keeping with the VIP who is guest of honour at the Oct 10 launch of the new kid on the block — the Parti Makkal Sakti Malaysia.

The VIP will be Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who appears to be signalling that he is not going to solely depend on Barisan Nasional (BN) stalwart parties like the MIC and MCA to reach out to the non-Malay communities.

He will launch the new Indian-based party formed by former leaders of Hindraf at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park in Serdang next month in a strategy which bears similarities to his father Tun Razak Hussein's move in the 1970s to welcome more political parties into the establishment fold.

Anon642, Good luck to you and Najib. If you think I can be of any help do give me shout. Strange....his father invited and formed the BN and under his son they might lose the two biggest partners. God's ways they say are wonderful...and miracles do happen every day.

REALLY??
I AM surprised at the selangor benefits you listed. So are the benefits applicable to all selangor resident citizens regardless of net worth?

I should think this benefit should be applicable ONLY for those in great financial need. It just wld seem crazy to apply this evenly to all.

pardon me but I have read abt cases in singapore where free school books were given out to the poor but those in mercedes also rocked up, & I wouldn't be surprised this would also happen here if it's a free for all!

Greenbug said...

Zorro, the three benefits offered by the Selangor government are no well-publicised. The communication is no good, many Selangorians do not know about this. Just my 2 sen feedback.

WOW, Funeral expenses for Senior Citizens; better than rich S'pore.
Syabas to PR Selangor.
Day by day you are getting more experience to GOVERN although there are pitfalls and obstacles on the way to good CAT governance.
PKR,DAP & PAS Aduns should put aside their individual differences for the COMMON Good of the Rakyat & State.

I just checked the TAWAS website (http://www.tawas.org.my/prosedur.htm) - for the newborns it's from Jan 1 2009 onwards, and not 2008 (my daughter was born in mid-2008).

It's good that such a gesture is made by the S'gor gov, although it is true that it should be for lower income group rather than all across the board.

Finally Najis has let the cat out of the bag. His chosen Indians aka known as the traitors of the HINDRAF movement under the guise of Makkal Sakthi Party has decided to be the next Samy Velu and neoMIC.

Indians (NOT ALL) are said to have the crab mentality. To these traitors they just wait to stab the backs of fellow Indians. Just imagine sucking up to UMNO who has been the driving force in marginalizing the Indians for 50 years of ketuanan rule.

When these scums find one begger (Samy Velu) is out of favour with UMNO, these traitors can't wait to fill the void.

If they ever think of standing for election on their own or as part of UMNO/BN, they can rest assured that they will lose their deposit.

Is it any wonder why the Indians have been taken for a jolly good ride by UMNO for the past 50 odd years?

gobloking....a GOBLOK you are!....you have shit brain?

Zorro,

I through a mutual friend met some PKR supporters in Ijok, Selangor. That was the early PR tenure last year....they have just formed the TASK FORCE to check the illegal CURI of sand in the IJOK-BTG BERJUNTAI areas....they showed us the tracks of the lorries ferrying sands.....we followed some tracks and able to see the men at work!....CURI-ing!!...

Their feedback when asked is these lorries are owned by many gangsters ALLIGNED to khir toyo!....they were still at it....STEALING!. The task force did a bold move to stop the lorries....many scuffles happened....eventually they relent to follow the PR govt's suggestions...a new company was formed to oversee legal ferrying of sands....and I was told that the monies gained by this state govt company will be chanelled to benefit the elderly and poor rakyats.....and this is the RESULTS!!!...congratulations Khalid....an ingenuine and bold effort!

the only person who cursed this effort is the toyol....the only one toyol who owns an Istana.....may he die in that istana buried by the collapsed walls built by STOLEN SANDS!!!.....and a GOBLOK too!

The MIND!!!
