Penyokong2 Din mahu Din ganti Najib...

Pemimpin UMNO cawangan mahu Muhyiddin ganti Najib, anggap Khairy angkuh...

Pemimpin Umno cawangan Syed Rosli Syed Harman Jamalullail berkata, Datuk Seri Najib Razak perlu berundur dari kedudukannya dalam parti serta sebagai perdana menteri agar ruang itu dapat diberikan kepada timbalannya, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

"Saya cadang timbalan perdana menteri ambil alih kedudukan Najib. Beliau lebih layak dan ini supaya dapat memberi nafas baru kepada parti," kata beliau kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Cadangan ini dibuat sebagai tambahan kepada surat terbuka Ketua Penerangan Umno cawangan Taman Chempaka, Pandan, sebelum ini yang menuntut supaya Najib berundur.

Dalam pada itu, Syed Rosli mengingatkan Ketua Pemuda Umno Khairy Jamaluddin beliau tidak mungkin berada di tahapnya seperti sekarang tanpa sokongan akar umbi.

Malah beliau juga turut mengingatkan menteri belia dan sukan itu suara akar umbi itulah yang menyaksikan bagaimana bekas perdana menteri Tun Abdullah Badawi terpaksa berundur daripada jawatannya.

"Khairy Jamaluddin kena ingat undian daripada akar umbilah yang menyebabkan beliau menang dan daripada suara akar umbilah membawa kejayaan desakan Tun Abdullah Badawi meletakkan jawatan," katanya kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Menjawab reaksi Khairy dalam surat terbukanya kepada perdana menteri pada Rabu lalu, ketua penerangan Umno cawangan itu berkata, kenyataan Khairy selain bersifat angkuh dan sombong, juga akan memberikan persepsi negatif kepada ahli Umno yang sememangnya menjadi suara akar umbi parti itu.

"Beliau tidak boleh kata suara akar umbi ini tidak relevan. Tidak adil kalau ahli Umno ini tidak dapat bersuara, jadi apa tujuan menjadi ahli kalau tidak dapat bersuara atau suara kami dipandang hina.

"Umno sendiri cuba permudahkan cara bagi rakyat menjadi ahli, jadi dengan kenyataan Khairy bukan sahaja menyebabkan ahli berasa kecewa tetapi menyebabkan timbulnya tanggapan negatif rakyat apabila suara akar umbi ini dianggap paling rendah.

"Sebagai pemimpin Umno, Khairy sepatutnya lebih menghormati suara akar umbi," katanya.

Khairy dalam reaksinya kepada surat terbuka itu menghina Syed Rosli dengan berkata ia adalah suara yang paling rendah dalam hierarki Umno.

Bercakap di sidang media semalam, Khairy berkata beliau hairan mengapa media memilih untuk menyiarkan surat Syed Rosli kerana beliau tidak mempunyai jawatan tinggi dalam Umno.

Apatah lagi kata Khairy, Syed Rosli pernah mencabarnya untuk jawatan ketua pemuda, namun tidak mendapat sebarang undi.

Mengulas mengenai surat terbukannya yang mendesak Najib untuk berundur agar Umno dapat dikukuhkan semula, Syed Rosli berkata pandangannya itu dibuat secara ikhlas tanpa ada agenda tertentu.

Penolong Setiausaha Pemuda Cawangan Umno Taman Chempaka, Pandan, itu berkata beliau bebas menyuarakan pendapatnya menggunakan media sosial tanpa sekatan.

"Saya ikhlas apabila menyuarakan hal ini, saya rasa ia salah satu cara menarik perhatian pemimpin Umno. Saya bukan ahli majlis tertinggi juga bukan berada dalam Kabinet. Saya tidak ada akses untuk bercakap terus dan surat terbuka merupakan medium saya.

"Saya juga tidak mendapat apa-apa manfaat, tidak ada projek atau tender yang saya perlu jaga. Saya cuma ahli biasa, apa yang saya cakap adalah luahan dari hati yang bimbang dengan masalah parti," katanya.

Tambahnya lagi, gesaan mendesak Najib berundur bukan hanya datang daripada suara akar umbi, malah daripada pimpinan tertinggi sekalipun, seperti bekas perdana menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

"Seperti saya nyatakan dalam surat terbuka, Najib perlu berundur kerana sudah menjadi liabiliti dalam parti, terlalu banyak isu seperti 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) dan beliau sepatutnya sebagai menteri kewangan menjawab isu tersebut, namun hanya bertindak mendiamkan diri," katanya.

Selain itu, Syed Rosli mengakui tidak gentar sekiranya Umno bertindak memecat atau menggantung keahlian beliau kerana kelantangannya itu.

Beliau berkata sekiranya parti itu bertindak menggantung atau memecatnya, ia membuktikan tiada kebebasan untuk ahlinya bersuara atau bercakap mengenai pemimpin.

"Saya ini lebih sayangkan parti daripada pemimpin dan andai kata saya dipecat, jadi perjuangan saya bersama Umno akan terhenti setakat ini, namun perjuangan saya bersama rakyat akan berterusan," katanya.

Dalam surat terbukanya, Syed Rosli menuntut Najib berhenti kerana perkhidmatan beliau tidak lagi diperlukan.

Beliau berkata, Umno ketika ini sudah semakin lemah daripada segi sokongan orang Melayu, mahupun pengundi parti komponen Barisan Nasional (BN) terutamanya parti berteraskan bangsa Cina dan India.

Sebelum ini, Naib Ketua Umno Bahagian Batu Kawan, Pulau Pinang Datuk Paduka Khairuddin Abu Hassan membuat laporan polis terhadap 1MDB tentang pentadbiran kewangan syarikat hak milik kerajaan itu.

Beliau yang merupakan penerbit buku "50 dalil kenapa Anwar tidak boleh menjadi PM" itu berkata, siasatan terperinci harus dilakukan bagi mengenalpasti punca masalah kepincangan pentadbiran kewangan yang dihadapi syarikat tersebut.

Pada masa sama, Syed Rosli turut mencabar Najib membuat undian secara online, adakah khidmat perdana menteri itu masih diperlukan bagi membuktikan dakwaannya mengenai penolakan akar umbi.

"Selama ini Najib pegang jawatan tersebut tanpa bertanding, jadi saya cabar, adakah beliau berani secara terbuka mengadakan undian online dan saya jamin daripada situ kita tahu beliau diperlukan atau tidak," katanya. – tmi

Can Najib survive...

Umno President Najib Abdul Razak was checkmated by his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin at last month’s Umno general assembly, according to an analysis by Dzulkefly Ahmad, who heads PAS’ research outfit. PAS' research chief says Muhyiddin checkmated his boss at the recent Umno general assembly.

“Muhyiddin just stopped short of declaring that his boss was a failure,” says Dzulkefly in his latest blog entry.

He says that Muhyiddin, in his bold call for a new national economic policy, was practically dismissing the “GTPs, ETPs, NKRAs, NKEAs, KPIs, SRIs” and the plethora of other so-called transformation programmes initiated by Najib.

“In other words, Najib has failed because the Malays and other Bumiputeras are still poor and the gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen,” Dzulkefly writes.

“And as if that wasn’t enough, Muhyiddin tightened the screw by turning to the burning issue of Najib’s promise to repeal the Sedition Act.”

Dzulkefly reminds us that Muhyiddin’s speech, which was delivered at the opening of the Wanita, Youth and Puteri assemblies, came before Najib’s address, in which he announced that the Sedition Act would be maintained and fortified.

He notes that Muhyiddin was firm and biting in his call for the retention of the act. He quotes:

“It is appropriate for the government to take firm action to ensure that no one can spark the fires of conflict by issuing statements that are insensitive to racial and religious sentiments.

“It is better for us to prevent than to treat the wounds of enmity. That is why I’m stating my stand with regard to the Sedition Act. To me, this act should be preserved and improved upon.”

Dzulkefly speculates that Najib cannot but feel threatened by Muhyiddin’s boldness.

He says Muhyiddin was especially direct in his attack when he spoke on the issue of party elections. He quotes again:

“We don’t have much time to wait for change to happen. If change does not happen, we have to engineer the change. And so, to me, it is appropriate that we consider having party elections according to what the Umno Constitution stipulates and not postpone them till after the general election, as has been done before this.”

Dzulkefly dismisses talk about Muhyiddin wanting to retire, saying the rumours were spun by people who want him replaced.

His discussion on Muhyiddin as a threat to Najib’s position is only part of a very long blog posting. He ends the section with a pointed question: “Can Najib survive?” - fmt

Apa sebenarnya kerja yang DBKL buat...

Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) nampaknya telah menjadi agensi penyumber luar (outsourcing agency) terbesar di Malaysia.

Ahli Parlimen Segambut Lim Lip Eng berkata, sama ada benar atau tidak, Datuk Bandar dan juga Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan, Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.

"Mula-mula kita lihat pengurusan sampah disumberluarkan kepada Alam Flora. Kemudian kontrak pembetungan pula diberi kepada Indah Water," ujarnya dalam satu kenyataan.

Tandas awam pula, katanya dikawalselia oleh Kementerian Kesejahteraan Bandar, Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan.

Tambahnya, pembersihan sungai pula menjadi urusan syarikat swasta di bawah arahan Jabatan Perdana Menteri, kontrak Sistem Maklumat Pengangkutan Bersepadu (ITIS) memantau aliran kesesakan dan kesalahan trafik pula didapat oleh Telekom Malaysia Bhd.

"Hal ehwal bil dan kutipan hasil pungutan daripada pengiklanan, serta lesen perniagaan dan komersial pula dipantau dan disimpan rekodnya oleh Oracle Synergy Sdn Bhd.

"Jadi apa sebenarnya kerja yang DBKL buat?" tanya beliau.

Justeru, katanya tidak hairanlah kenapa RM1.044 bilion yang merupakan 64.2% daripada belanjawan pengurusan DBKL berjumlah RM1.63 bilion bagi tahun hadapan akan dibelanjakan untuk perkhidmatan dan bekalan bermacam-macam kontraktor dan sub-kontraktor itu semua.

Selain daripada aktiviti berbasikal sebulan sekali pada hari tanpa kereta setiap pagi Ahad pertama setiap bulan, beliau ingin menggesa Tengku Adnan untuk menjelaskan kepada warga kota apa sebenarnya kerja DBKL setelah demikian banyak tugas-tugasnya disumberluarkan.

"Adakah tugas DBKL begitu picisan tarafnya setakat menukar nama jalan dan mengambil tindakan terhadap gelandangan?" soalnya lagi.

Bagi beliau, tidak masuk akal bagi DBKL mempunyai belanjawan RM2.44 bilion bagi tahun 2015 yang lebih tinggi sedikit berbanding belanjawan Selangor yang bernilai RM2.42 bilion walhal Selangor mesti melayani populasi 3.2 kali ganda lebih besar daripada Kuala Lumpur, dan kawasan perkhidmatannya pula meliputi seluas 33 kali ganda keluasan ibu kota. - harakahdaily

MP blasts DBKL RM2.44bil budget 'for nothing'...

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has been questioned for having a budget larger than the whole of Selangor, when most of its key services have allegedly been outsourced.

“It doesn’t make sense that DBKL has a RM2.44 billion budget for 2015, which is slightly higher compared with Selangor’s budget of RM2.42 billion, when Selangor serves a population 3.2 times larger than Kuala Lumpur,” said Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng.

Lim said Selangor also serves an area 33 times the size of the federal capital.

Noting that most of DBKL’s services have been outsourced, he asked what the city council’s job was.

Lim opined that DBKL has become the country’s biggest “outsourcing agency in Malaysia”, this being evident in how waste management had been outsourced to Alam Flora, the sewerage contract outsourced to Indah Water, public toilets regulated by the Urban Well-being, Housing and Local Government Ministry, as well as other contracts.

“Is DBKL’s job so miniscule that its role is reduced to changing road names and taking action against the homeless?” he quipped in a statement today.

DBKL raised a furore earlier this year when it announced a revision of land assessment rates of over 100 percent, with some going above 200 percent.

While the rates were eventually reduced following intense protests, it again raised national indignation when it attempted to ban soup kitchens in the city centre to get rid of the homeless and beggars.

Lim also said it was not surprising that RM1.044 billion which is 64.2 percent from DBKL’s management budget of RM1.63 billion for next year - would be spent on the services of the various contractors and sub-contractors.

“Apart from the monthly free car-bicycle ride, I want (Federal Territories Minister) Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to explain to the city dwellers what exactly is DBKL’s job, since most of its services have been outsourced,” he said.- mk

MH370 bersama 3 badut yang angkuh lagi sombong...

Apa terjadi dengan cakap berdegar-degar mengenai MH370...

Tiga individu utama dalam kes ini – Perdana-Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak dan Tony Abbott, dan Pemangku Menteri Pengangkutan dahulunya, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein – telah banyak bercakap mengenainya. 

Tetapi mereka terus mengeluarkan kenyataan-kenyataan kosong dan menganggap yang mereka adalah "wira", tanpa menyedari bahawa mereka menambah derita keluarga-keluarga mangsa MAS Boeing 777 itu. 

Mereka semua bercakap besar, berterusan mengeluarkan kenyataan-kenyataan memaparkan keyakinan dan memberi harapan palsu kepada keluarga yang sentiasa mencari apa-apa bukti mengenai pesawat penumpang yang hilang itu.

Sewaktu jam terus berdetik, harapan menjumpai apa-apa bukti semakin malap tetapi adakah sesiapa telah dip ertanggungjawabkan bagi pesawat yang hilang itu?

Tiada siapa dalam MAS atau mana-mana pegawai kerajaan telah dipertanggungjawabkan atas pengendalian proses mencari dan menyelamat (SAR) yang cacat. 

Dua ratus tiga puluh sembilan nyawa terkorban tetapi tiada siapa yang bertanggungjawab. Menakjubkan, tidakkah begitu? Tidak ada satu peletakan jawatan dari MAS atau kerajaan. 

Menakjubkan, tetapi tidak menghairankan di Malaysia Darul Boleh!

Dan lebih banyak pendedahan telah dilaporkan oleh The West Australian pada 15 Disember dengan tajuk berita utama "Malaysia Airlines menolak data penting", mengenai ketidakcekapan SAR yang dipimpin Malaysia.

Laporan itu mendakwa bahawa tempoh berhari-hari kritikal telah hilang dalam pencarian MH370, kerana pihak berkuasa Malaysia pada mulanya menolak bukti dari sebuah syarikat satelit British bahawa pesawat itu berada di selatan Lautan India.

Sumber-sumber British memberitahu The West Australian bahawa dalam masa 24 jam dari kehilangan pada 8 Mac, Inmarsat menasihatkan pihak berkuasa Malaysia berkaitan penemuan mereka, tetapi telah ditolak. 

"Malaysia Airlines telah menolak data penting. Mereka tidak mahu tahu," kata sumber itu. 

Mengapa? Mungkin untuk menutup konspirasi mengenai kargo "sensitif" (manggis dan bateri litium) yang diangkut MAS?


Inmarsat kemudian pergi kepada Cawangan Siasatan Kemalangan Udara British dengan data itu, dan ia dengan segera mengiktiraf kepentingannya. 

Inmarsat telah diminta untuk menyediakan pautan data satelit kepada armada pesawat MAS, dan terus mendapat isyarat dari MH370 setiap jam sehingga jam 08:19, masa WA.

Isyarat itu diterima dari satelitnya yang berada 38,000km di atas Lautan Hindi dan disampaikan melalui stesen bumi di Perth.

Pihak berkuasa Malaysia terpaksa mengambil serius penemuan itu apabila AAIB bekerjasama dengan Inmarsat dalam menyampaikan semula data MH370 itu, lima hari selepas pesawat itu hilang. 

Data pengesanan radar tentera Malaysia juga mengambil masa yang lama untuk disediakan.

Ia menunjukkan MH370 menukar laluannya dan terbang merentasi Malaysia ke arah Laut Andaman, tetapi carian diteruskan di Laut China Selatan, timur negara itu. 

Pada 16 Mac, pencarian telah dipindahkan ke selatan Lautan India, dengan carian udara yang pertama dijalankan dari Perth pada 18 Mac, 10 hari selepas MH370 hilang.

Pakar-pakar kaji lautan bersetuju bahawa apa-apa peluang untuk mengesan kawasan serpihan utama telah hilang.

Selepas 10 hari, serpihan yang terapung akan dimasuki air dan tenggelam atau dipecahkan ombak kuat. Laut dan arus akan menyebarkan serpihan-serpihan ini dengan jauh dan luas. 

Terdapat banyak perdebatan tentang data satelit Inmarsat yang merupakan asas pencarian yang dilakukan di Lautan Hindi. 

Walau bagaimanapun, unit-unit penyiasatan nahas udara berwibawa, Lembaga Keselamatan Pengangkutan Kebangsaan Amerika Syarikat, AAIB, Biro Keselamatan Pengangkutan Australia dan BEA Perancis, dan juga Boeing dan pengeluar enjin Rolls-Royce, bersetuju bahawa data ini sah. 

Presiden Emirates Tim Clark telah mendakwa bahawa terdapatnya usaha menutup kemalangan itu oleh pihak antarabangsa.

Selepas beberapa bulan berlalu, Najib dan sepupunya Hishammuddin masih tidak mahu bertanggungjawab atas kegagalan SAR? Itulah kewibawaan Malaysia. - theantdaily

What have MH370's boastful trio got to say now...

MH370 with 239 people aboard went missing on March 8 and there is still no closure.

The MH370's three stooges – Prime Ministers Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Tony Abbott, and then Acting Transport Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein – have had their fair share of boastful big talk since then.

But they continue to issue crap statements thinking that they are “heroes” but without realising that they are agitating families of victims of the ill-fated MAS Boeing 777.

They are all big talk and continuously issue statements displaying flawed confidence and giving false hopes to the families of ever finding any evidence of the missing passenger jet.

As the clock continues ticking, hopes of finding any evidence gets dimmer but has anyone been held responsible for the missing aircraft?

No one in MAS or any government official responsible for mishandling the Search and Rescue/Recovery (SAR) has been faulted.

Two hundred and thirty-nine lives were lost but no one is held responsible. Amazing, don't you think so? Not even a resignation from MAS or the government.

Amazing but not surprising in Bolehland Malaysia!

And more boo boos have been unearthed and reported by The West Australian on Dec 15 with the damning "Malaysia Airlines rejected crucial data" headline being the latest disappointing news of gross incompetency by the Malaysia-led SAR.

The report claims critical days were lost in the search for MH370 because Malaysian authorities initially rejected evidence from a British satellite company that the plane was in the southern Indian Ocean.

British sources told The West Australian that within 24 hours of the disappearance on March 8, Inmarsat advised the relevant Malaysian authorities of their findings but were rebuffed.

“Malaysia Airlines rejected crucial data. They didn't want to know," the source said.

Why? Perhaps to cover up a conspiracy like what "sensitive" cargo (mangosteens and lithium batteries) MAS could be ferrying?


Inmarsat then approached Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch with its data and it immediately recognised the significance.

Inmarsat was asked to provide a satellite data link to the MAS fleet and continued to get a signal every hour from MH370 until 8.19am, WA time.

Those signals were picked up from its satellite 38,000km above the Indian Ocean and relayed via a ground station in Perth.

The Malaysian authorities were forced to take the findings seriously when the AAIB teamed with Inmarsat to re-present the MH370 data five days after the MAS Boeing 777 disappeared.

It also took days before Malaysian military radar tracking data was made available.

It showed MH370 changed course and flew across Malaysia towards the Andaman Sea but the search continued in the South China Sea, east of the country.

On March 16, the search was moved to the southern Indian Ocean with the first aerial searches conducted from Perth on March 18, 10 days after MH370 was lost.

Oceanographers agree that any chance of spotting a major debris field was lost.

After 10 days much of the debris that would have floated would have become waterlogged and sunken or been broken up in the heavy seas. The seas and prevailing currents would have spread the debris field far and wide.

There has been a lot of debate about the Inmarsat satellite data that was the basis of the Indian Ocean search.

However, respected air crash investigation units the US National Transportation Safety Board, the AAIB, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and the French BEA, as well as Boeing and engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce, agree the data is valid.

Emirates president Tim Clark has claimed there is an international cover-up of the crash, which claimed 239 lives.

After some nine months and 239 lives lost, Najib and his cousin Hishammuddin still feel no remorse and responsibility for the failed SAR? That's Malaysian integrity for you.- Ng Kee Seng,theantdaily

Gomen Najib kutip RM274 juta cukai petrol secara senyap2...

BN/UMNO kutip RM274 juta cukai petrol sejak 1 Nov - 15 Dis...

Harga pasaran bagi petrol RON95 dan diesel bagi tempoh 1 Disember 2014 hingga 15 Disember 2014 disertakan di dalam Lampiran A (harga pasaran RON95) dan Lampiran B (harga pasaran diesel) yang disertakan bersama.

Data harga telah diperolehi secara sah dari pasaran seperti berikut: 

RON95 – ditentukan oleh MOPS bagi Singapore Mogas 95 Unleaded

Diesel – ditentukan oleh MOPS bagi Singapore Gasoil


Kadar tukaran matawang – ditentukan oleh kadar rasmi Bank Negara


Dari Lampiran A dan Lampiran B, jelas bahawa harga pasaran bagi RON95 (tidak termasuk jaminan keuntungan dan kos yang diberikan oleh kerajaan kepada syarikat minyak) telah menjunam dari paras RM1.73 seliter pada 1 Disember 2014 kepada RM1.58 seliter pada 15 Disember 2014.

Keadaan yang sama juga berlaku dengan harga diesel yang menjunam dari paras RM1.87 seliter pada 1 Disember 2014 kepada RM1.71 seliter pada 15 Disember 2014.

Malah, dengan jaminan keuntungan dan kos yang diberikan oleh kerajaan kepada syarikat minyak sebanyak 32 sen seliter (RON95) dan 23 sen seliter (diesel) seperti yang terpaksa dibayar rakyat sekarang, harganya juga masih rendah berbanding harga yang ditetapkan oleh kerajaan.

Mengambil kira jaminan keuntungan dan kos kepada syarikat minyak itu, harga RON95 ialah RM2.05 seliter (pada 1 Disember 2014) dan terus menurun kepada RM1.90 seliter (pada 15 Disember 2014); berbanding harga yang dibayar oleh rakyat RM2.26 seliter.

Harga diesel pula (termasuk jaminan keuntungan dan kos kepada syarikat minyak) ialah RM2.10 seliter (pada 1 Disember 2014) dan terus menurun kepada RM1.94 seliter (pada 15 Disember 2014); berbanding harga yang dibayar oleh rakyat RM2.23 seliter.

Oleh kerana rakyat terus membayar pada harga yang lebih tinggi dari harga pasaran (walaupun tanpa subsidi), rakyat Malaysia sebenarnya telah membayar cukai petrol sejak bulan November 2014 lagi.

Perkiraan cukai petrol tersembunyi yang telah ditanggung oleh rakyat ditunjukkan di dalam Lampiran C.

Anggaran ini dibuat berdasarkan jumlah penggunaan petrol sebanyak 14 bilion liter setahun dan penggunaan diesel sebanyak 9.64 bilion liter setahun seperti jawapan Perdana Menteri di Parlimen.

Bagi tempoh November 2014, rakyat membayar sebanyak RM47 juta cukai petrol.

Bagi tempoh 15 hari pertama Disember, rakyat membayar sebanyak RM146 juta cukai petrol bagi RON95 dan RM81 juta bagi diesel.

Maka, jumlah cukai petrol yang dikutip secara senyap oleh kerajaan bagi tempoh 45 hari sahaja ialah RM274 juta tanpa diketahui oleh rakyat.

Oleh sebab itu, saya terus menegaskan bahawa sistem penetapan harga sekarang ini tidak telus dan memangsakan rakyat.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak perlu menjawab segera ke mana perginya cukai tersembunyi sebanyak RM274 juta yang dikutip dari rakyat dalam tempoh 45 hari sahaja di antara 1 November 2014 hingga 15 Disember 2014. - Rafizi Ramli

Gov't secretly collected RM274mil in fuel taxes...

PKR secretary-general Rafizi Ramli has flayed the government for quietly collecting RM274 million in petrol taxes in a period of 45 days.

According to Rafizi, the people have paid higher petrol prices with hidden taxes without any subsidy despite the world fuel price dropping.

“For the month of November 2014, the people have paid RM47 million in fuel taxes.

“Meanwhile, for the first 15 days of December, the people have paid RM146 million in fuel taxes for RON95 fuel and another RM81 million for diesel.

“The total fuel taxes which has been collected silently by the government for this period of 45 days alone has accumulated to RM274 million, which the people do not know about,” Rafizi said in a statement today.

He said that the people were paying extra for the fuel, inclusive of the profit margin and cost reimbursement despite the world fuel prices plummeting.

The profit margin and cost reimbursement the government promised the oil companies are 32 sen per litre for RON95 and 23 sen per litre for diesel.

“The cost of RON95 (on Dec 1) was RM2.05 per litre and dropped to RM1.90 per litre (on December 15), but the people are still paying RM2.26 per litre.

“For diesel, the price was (on Dec 1) RM2.10 per litre and has dropped to RM1.94 per litre (on Dec 15) compared to the RM2.23 per litre the people still have to pay,” Rafizi said.

The Pandan MP also called on Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to answer where the RM274 million collected in taxes has gone.

“I stress that the current managed float system is not transparent and has victimised the people. Najib has to immediately answer where the hidden taxes, accumulating to RM274 million from the people’s pockets, have gone to in just 45 days,” Rafizi added. - mk


Pakistan
Taliban Penggal Kepala Murid, Bakar Guru Hidup-Hidup...

Beberapa laporan mengenai serangan militan Taliban ke atas sebuah sekolah di Pakistan amat mengejutkan dengan dakwaan kepala kanak-kanak dipenggal dan seorang guru dibakar hidup-hidup.

Kumpulan pengganas itu menyerang Sekolah Awam Tentera di Peshawar di barat laut Pakistan pada Selasa, mengorbankan lebih 140 orang, dengan kebanyakan mereka adalah pelajar.

Laporan mengejutkan membabitkan tragedi berdarah itu bermula daripada satu sumber menyatakan beberapa kanak-kanak terbunuh, dengan mendakwa antara mereka yang berusia lima tahun telah dipenggal kepala.

Satu sumber lagi memberitahu NBC News bahawa seorang guru telah dibakar hidup-hidup di hadapan sekumpulan pelajar yang dipaksa untuk menyaksikan kejadian ngeri tersebut.

“Mereka bakar seorang guru di hadapan para pelajar di sebuah kelas.

“Mereka membakar guru itu menggunakan minyak gasolin dan memaksa pelajar untuk menyaksikannya,” kata sumber itu kepada NBC News.

Sekurang-kurangnya enam militan memasuki sekolah berkenaan dengan memakai uniform pasukan keselamatan sebelum mengadakan serangan.

Pegawai rasmi Pakistan masih belum mengesahkan mengenai kesahihan laporan mengenai pelajar sekolah dipenggal dan guru yang dibakar.

Destruction left in the wake of the attack on the Peshawar school on 17 December 2014
Taliban Targeted Soldiers' Children in Horrific School Massacre

The horrific attack in Pakistan on Tuesday was not the first time the Taliban has targeted a school — but sources told NBC News the massacre was motivated more by the militant group's war with Pakistan's army than it was by its anti-education ideology.

The Taliban has claimed that the siege on the Army Public School in Peshawar, one of nearly 150 schools across the country run by the military, was "revenge" for the Pakistani army's ongoing operation in North Waziristan, a hotbed of terrorist activity for years. Pakistan officials said the attack, which killed more than 140, appeared to be aimed at the children of senior military personnel who attend the school.

Peshawar is headquarters for the XI Corps, a branch of Pakistan's military that has led its operation in North Waziristan and includes many members of the armed forces who send their children to Army Public School. But that operation — dubbed "Zarb-e-Azb" or "Strike of the Prophet's Sword" — has recently slowed in pace after making gains since its June launch. Former military officials say the dense, heavily forested region in the Shawal Valley, the site of numerous U.S. drone strikes, has "held up" the military's advance. - continue reading...

1MDB - Najib nak saman atau tak...

Tak mohon maaf, Rafizi masih tunggu saman Najib...

Naib Presiden PKR Rafizi Ramli masih belum mendengar apa-apa daripada peguam yang mewakili Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dan isterinya Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.
 
Ketika dihubungi hari ini, beliau berkata, memandangkan sekarang adalah akhir tahun, mungkin semua orang bercuti.
 
Bagaimanapun, ahli parlimen Pandan berpandangan bahawa tiada alternatif untuk Najib dan Rosmah selain menyamannya.
 
Menurut Rafizi, surat tuntutan guaman dari Najib dan Rosmah menyatakan beliau perlu meminta maaf dalam tempoh 14 hari dan tempoh itu akan tamat pada 28 Disember.
 
"Mungkin mereka sedang menunggu sama ada saya akan ubah fikiran," katanya sambil ketawa.
 

Sementara itu, Rafizi berkata beliau bersedia untuk berdepan dengan perdana menteri dan isteri di mahkamah.
 
Minggu lalu, Rafizi melalui peguamnya menjawab bahawa beliau akan mempertahankan kenyataannya di mahkamah, dengan berhujah bahawa kenyataannya adalah berasas dan adil.

Pada 4 Disember, Najib dan Rosmah menghantar surat tuntutan guaman kepada pemimpin PKR itu berhubung ucapannya pada 23 November di mana beliau bercakap tentang subsidi bahan api dan cincin berlian yang didakwa dibeli untuk Rosmah.- mk

'No apology' Rafizi still waiting for Najib's suit...

PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has yet to hear from the lawyers representing Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor.

Contacted today, he said that since it is the year end, everyone could be on holidays.

However, the Pandan lawmaker saw no alternative for Najib and Rosmah apart from suing him.

"I don't think they would back down, which is a good thing. I don't see how they could back down," he told Malaysiakini.

Furthermore, Rafizi said the letter of demand had stated that he should apologise within 14 days and this expires on Dec 28.

"Perhaps they are waiting to see if I would change my mind," he added with laughter.

On a serious note, the Pandan lawmaker said that he would not reconsider and was prepared to face the prime minister and his wife in court.

Last week, Rafizi responded via his lawyers that he would defend his statements in court, arguing that his remarks were justified and fair.

  
On Dec 4, Najib and Rosmah slapped the PKR leader with a legal threat over his speech on Nov 23, where he talked about fuel subsidies and diamond rings being purchased for Rosmah.

Rafizi had told the audience that each month the Umno government saved RM1 billion from the removal of subsidies, which could be used to purchase 20 expensive rings for Rosmah, each costing RM20 million.


Najib and Rosmah’s lawyers stated that the allegations against the couple were "baseless and false", made with the "primary intention of attacking and damaging" their reputation for no justifiable reason.

It also added that the allegations had caused the couple great distress and embarrassment.

After receiving the letter of demand, the Pandan MP said he was looking forward in going to court as his lawyers were eager to grill Rosmah.

Furthermore, he added that the "ring had been a source of intrigue for years".- mk

Kos Perubatan di Hospital Swasta Malaysia Tahun 2015 Naik Sekurang-kurangnya 5%...

Punca Kenaikan Kos Perubatan di Hospital Swasta Malaysia Tahun 2015 Sekurang-kurangnya 5%! : Pelik. Banyak yang melawan arus sekarang daripada cakap-cakap pemain industri berbanding kenyataan menteri menjelangnya pelaksanaan GST 6% di Malaysia 1 April 2015 kelak.

Apabila ditanya kesan GST kepada Malaysia, apa jawapan yang rakyat terima? banyak harga barang akan turun. Apabila diajukan pula persoalan mengenai kos perubatan terkesan atau tidak disbealik pelaksanaan GST? Jawapan menteri….

Menteri Kesihatan Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam hanya mengatakan kenaikan kos perubatan di Malaysia naik hanya akan berlegar antara 1% dan 2% apabila GST 6% dilaksanakan kelak.

Walaubagaimanapun, Presiden Persatuan Hospital Swasta Malaysia (APHM), Dr Jacob Thomas telah melangungkan amaran dan peringatan kepada rakyat Malaysia supaya bersedia lebih awal dengan kenaikan kos perubatan di hospital swasta Malaysia naik yang akan berlaku kelak iaitu sekurang-kurang 5% atau lebih walaupun kerajaan mengatakan perkhidmatan kesihatan dikecualikan daripada GST.

Dr Jacob Thomas mengingatkan kerajaan malaysia supaya bercakap benar, menyampaikan fakta yang sahih dan jelas disebalik kesan pelaksanaan GST 6% kepada rakyat Malaysia. - beritasemasa.com.my


Punca Kenaikan Kos Perubatan di Hospital Swasta Naik 2015...

  1. Ramai profesional kesihatan yang bekerja secara bebas atau sebagai bukan kakitangan hospital sebagai punca peningkatan kos tersebut
  2. Walaupun sektor penjagaan kesihatan sering dilabelkan terkecuali daripada GST oleh kerajaan, tetapi
  3. Jabatan Kastam DiRaja Malaysia pada 7 November 2014 menyatakan profesional kesihatan bebas di hospital swasta dikenakan GST kadar standard.
  4. Hampir 99 peratus daripada profesional perubatan yang bekerja di hospital swasta bukan kakitangan hospital dan mereka bekerja secara bebas tanpa terikat dengan pengurusan hospital
  5. Akibat daripada pelaksanaan cukai tersebut, sekurang-kurangnya 45 peratus daripada bil penjagaan kesihatan keseluruhan akan di caj GST.

Stop price hikes in private healthcare due to GST...

Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) exco member and Sungai Siput MP Dr Michael Jeyakumar has urged consumer associations to look into the price hike of healthcare in the private sector, due to the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) on April 1.

Speaking to Malaysiakini yesterday, he was responding to a statement made by Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia (AHPM) president Dr Jacob Thomas.

Jacob had said that costs for private healthcare will go up after the government rolls out the GST.

This is because private doctors are considered by the Customs Department as ‘outsourced services’ and their services will be charged with a tax of six percent.

Jacob added that the AHPM had explained to the Customs Department that almost all private doctors are independent consultants who have very close working relationships with the private hospitals. They are therefore not “outsourced services” as the services are provided by both parties. However Customs has not revised its policy.

“The consumer associations should look into this matter closely. Even though the government is exempting a few items including medical products from GST, it will still be a factor in the costs,”  Jeyakumar (left) said.

He added that PSM has also been urging the government to postpone the GST as a recession is about to hit the country.

Meanwhile, Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations (Fomca) president Marimuthu Nadason said that the government should look to exempt healthcare wholly from GST.

He added that the government cannot compromise on healthcare as it was part of the essential services that people expected the government to provide.

“We elect the government for security, food security, healthcare and education. If they cannot compromise on something like healthcare, it is better to privatise Parliament then,” Marimuthu told Malaysiakini yesterday.

Previously, Health Minister Dr S Subramaniam and Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan had said that there would be no increase in private healthcare after GST is implemented as it is part of the GST-exempt category.- mk

Apa 'senjata' Bik Mama pakai untuk tawan bang Jibby...


Golongan perempuan patut menggunakan “senjata rahsia” masing-masing untuk mendapatkan apa yang mereka mahu daripada suami, kata isteri perdana menteri Rosmah Mansor.

Beliau mencadangkan kaum hawa menggunakan “pendekatan lembut” dan kuasa memujuk.

“Jangan minta banyak sangat. Jangan minta, saya mahu itu, saya mahu ini. Lelaki tidak suka, betul tak.

“Jika dia nak bagi, dia akan bagi. Kita boleh bayangkan (mahu apa), tetapi jangan minta atau paksa mereka dapatkan untuk kamu.

“Kamu boleh pujuk. Kita ada senjata rahsia, jadi gunakanlah sebaiknya,” katanya yang mendapat tepukan gemuruh daripada hadirin.

Rosmah (atas) berkata demikian ketika berucap dalam pusat bantuan wanita dan nasihat guaman MCA, yang dikenali sebagai “LAWA”.

Use 'secret weapon' on hubby, says Rosmah...

Women should use their "secret weapon" instead of bugging their husbands to buy them things, said Rosmah Mansor.

The wife of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak suggested that women employ their “soft touch” and powers of persuasion.

"Don't ask him too many things. Don't ask him 'I want this, or I want that', men do not like that, am I right? If he wants to give, he'll give it. You can hint, but don't ask and don't force them to get it for you.

"You can always persuade. We've got our secret weapon, so use it to the very best we can," she said amid a resounding applause.

Rosmah was speaking at the launch of MCA's Legal Advisory and Women's Aid Centre (Lawa), of which she is the patron.

Sharing her thoughts on relationships, she said that wives must obediently stand by their husbands, just as how she is with Najib.

They should selflessly serve their men, regardless of their profession.

"I'm sure men are not so boisterous. Don't fight them, be with them, work together with them. If they don't want to eat, you (should) still prepare their food, no matter if you're a doctor or a lawyer, you have to be there with them.

"Make sure that you stand by your husband when he needs you to stand by him, like I do," Rosmah added.

As such, she said that married couples should not be argumentative all the time, however, if it is done in moderation, slight arguments can lead to a better love life.

"After a little bit of argument and then you make up, you will find that your husband will love you a little bit better," she added as the crowd erupted in laughter.

On a more serious note, the PM's wife pointed out that education is important to ensure that boys are raised to be chivalrous. - mk


Hudud: Yang ditulis sudah tertulis...

Tiada gunanya membahaskan sama ada ia sesuai untuk abad ini, atau sama ada ia harus diguna pakai di Kelantan sahaja atau seluruh Malaysia.

Tiada gunanya bertanya bagaimana tangan akan dipotong atau sama ada perogol akan terlepas jika hudud dilaksanakan.

Kesemuanya telah ditulis dan dibahas seolah-olah tiada berpenghujung. Namun hakikatnya hudud masih dilihat subjek yang masih 'seksi', khususnya bagi orang-orang di luar Kelantan.

Bagi penduduk negeri Cik Siti Wan Kembang itu, jika ditanya sama ada mereka menyokong hudud, jawapan penuh warna warni akan diperoleh.

Bagaimanapun, bagi orang di luar Kelantan hudud menjadi magnet, tidak kira bagaimana melihatnya – seperti bola kristal yang menyemarakkan sinaran cahaya tidak berkesudahan.




PAS harus dipuji kerana berjaya menarik perhatian parti-parti politik di Malaysia. Walaupun tanpa hudud, seperti tiada ruang untuk menghentam PAS.

Masih banyak perbincangan berkaitannya yang tidak selesai walaupun undang-undang jenayah itu sering dilihat turun daripada langit untuk mentadbir manusia.

Tambahan pula, perbincangan hudud begitu menarik, terutamanya apabila melibatkan perbincangan mengenai jenayah dan berkaitan anggota badan manusia.

Perbincangan mengenai hudud oleh pemimpin kanan PAS kadang-kadang menyebabkan siri drama penyiasatan jenayah CSI menjadi malu.

Umat Islam di semua peringkat membuat pendirian - sederhana dan melampau, bersedia dan tidak bersedia.

Ada yang berhujah, sebagai umat Islam mereka akan menyokongnya. Sementara yang lain pula menolak hudud untuk semua, walaupun untuk orang Islam sahaja. - mk


The 'sexy' hudud toy of PAS...

There is no point asking or debating what it is or if these are laws for this century’s Muslims or whether it is for Kelantan or for the whole of Malaysia. No point asking how the hand will be ‘guillotined’ or if a rapist will get away under hudud.

All of these have been written, debated and are still being discussed - definitely to no end - but for the fact that hudud is still very much a sexy subject, that is, for those outside Kelantan.

As for those in Kelantan, one can spend the whole day going around asking Kelantanese whether they are for hudud or not. You will probably get answers as colourful as their reactions when supermarket queues were first ‘gender sensitised’.

For the non-Kelantanese, however, hudud is interesting no matter how you look at it - almost like a spherical crystal ball emanating rays of endless colours.

One truly has to give credit to PAS for having given a red herring to political parties in Malaysia. For without hudud, one cannot bash PAS and be seen to be for non-Muslims. On the other hand, without hudud, one cannot talk about being for Muslims and be seen to be aspiring to be pious and attaining heaven.

The fact whether it gets implemented or not is another story altogether. For, can one even remember Malaysian politics without hudud being brought up? Perhaps very long ago.

The hudud issue may be likened to the ‘Allah’ ban for non-Muslims. The difference is that the ‘Allah’ issue can only be whipped left and right, while hudud has so many issues which are inexhaustive, as is always the case in human-made laws in the name of the divine power.

Furthermore, hudud is so engrossingly interesting, especially when it has all the elements of crime and body parts in it - the discussion of hudud by PAS big wigs sometimes puts the TV series CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) to shame.

Muslims in all parties will take stands - moderate and extremist, willing and unwilling. Some non-Muslims will say so long as it is for Muslims, they are for it; while others say hudud must not be for anyone, even if Muslims want it.

Carrot for the kampung folk

PAS has been dangling the hudud issue, used to symbolise their piety, as the carrot to get votes from their key voters - the kampung folk.

One PAS leader, when asked why not ditch hudud, asked, “What are we then to tell the kampung people?

“We told them that we are an Islamic party and we will implement hudud and they voted for us for we told them we are here to put God’s laws in this land. Even if we cannot implement hudud, we must still be seen to strive for it.”

In fact, despite them seemingly in the final push for hudud, many top party bigwigs remain unconvinced that hudud will be implemented in Kelantan.

Moderate PAS leaders still insist there will be no hudud, no Islamic state but a welfare state, and hudud is something the party has shelved for now.

The man who was appointed as the Kelantan spokesperson for hudud is Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Mohd Amar Abdullah.

He had time and again said that hudud will only be implemented "when the time is right, (and) the people are ready - at least mentally."

With the present rush to push the private bill to implement hudud in the Kelantan state assembly on Dec 29, the question remains: Are the Kelantan people ready for it, mentally, when many are still ignorant of the basic facts, even among the PAS members?

Mohd Amar had also repeatedly said that the implementation of hudud has to be done properly, over fear of overzealous executors, as has happened in countries like Pakistan and Nigeria.

Many in PAS say the main problem in Kelantan is Menteri Besar Ahmad Yakob (left). They say he is a man who is not keen on weighing the political success of hudud.

It is true Ahmad Yakob is not the shrewd politician like his predecessor, Nik Aziz Nik Mat. Some say Nik Aziz’s political shrewdness is second only to that of his most bitter enemy, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Ahmad Yakob, ever since he sat on the MB’s seat, does not mince his words. He has wanted hudud from the day he took office.

Nik Aziz shelved the implementation of hudud when Mahathir threatened to cut off federal aid to the state. Ahmad Yakob has probably failed to see Umno suddenly making a U-turn on the matter and now wanting to support hudud.

One cheeky PAS member quipped, “Perhaps the MB wants to go to heaven fast and he does not mind if the bird he flies on is Umno’s.”

A piece of advice

Like it or not, PAS will stay on in the opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat, and DAP will continue to bash PAS, while at the same time holding the hands of moderate leaders within the Islamic party.

From the looks of it, it is not likely that DAP or PAS will leave Pakatan over hudud - the coalition is their political survival. They will tell everyone they agreed to disagree, as they are wont to do every time.

After all, DAP needs the votes of the kampung folk and PAS needs the non-Malay votes. Therefore, they will both beat each other on the head over hudud and yet will still get into that big Pakatan bed and snuggle in with PKR for the sake of riding into Putrajaya, with or without hudud.

All said, Ahmad Yakob and his eager band of followers who are rushing to shut everyone up on the hudud issue by pushing ahead with the special sitting to discuss the tabling of a private member's bill in Parliament for Kelantan to enforce hudud, would do well to take this small advice.
                               
It is from their now ailing PAS’ spiritual leader and former menteri besar of Kelantan Nik Aziz Nik Mat (left), who days before he stepped down from the MB post, called on PAS members not to follow their leaders blindly and to continue questioning them on matters of faith.

“PAS allows its members to question as Islam asks us to be convinced and have faith. If we talk only and people listen, they will not be convinced. To be convinced, one has to question.

“Only one thing cannot be questioned - that of whether God is black and white. Other than that, everything can be questioned.

“Islam itself makes it compulsory to question. How can you be convinced if you do not question? If you only listen, that is called blind following. Following blindly is not allowed in Islam,” said Nik Aziz.

Ahmad Yakob and gang should fear if Kelantanese suddenly decide they want to be convinced on hudud and start questioning their leaders on it. - mk
