Janji Perdana Menteri Sementara, Datuk Seri Najib Razak untuk memansuhkan tol motosikal di Jambatan Pulau Pinang jika Barisan Nasional menang, dilihat sebagai janji tidak laku bagi penduduk negeri itu.
Menyambut ucapan Najib itu, Setiausaha Agung DAP Lim Guan Eng berkata, bukan setakat tol motosikal, bahkan seluruh tol jambatan terbabit akan dimansuhkan apabila HARAPAN mengambil alih kerajaan persekutuan.
“Undi BN, hanya tol motorsikal Jambatan Pulau Pinang pertama dimansuhkan.
“Undi HARAPAN, selepas kita mengambilalih Putrajaya, semua tol Jambatan Pulau Pinang pertama akan dimansuhkan,” ujar Ketua Menteri Sementara Pulau Pinang itu di laman Facebook.
Manifesto HARAPAN menjanjikan pemansuhan tol secara berperingkat.
Menurut Pengarah Pendidikan Politik DAP negeri, Steven Sim, janji untuk menghapuskan tol motosikal di Jambatan Pulau Pinang sudah pernah dijanjikan oleh UMNO-BN dalam pilihanraya sebelum ini.
“Perkara seperti tol Jambatan Pulau Pinang semuanya berapa di bawah bidang kuasa kerajaan pusat,” jelas beliau.
“Walaupun BN kalah di Pulau Pinang, BN masih menang di peringkat pusat dalam PRU ke-13.” – Roketkini.com

Kit Siang hurls 'turtle egg'
at UMNO minister over 'fake news'...
The DAP veteran also asked if the Umno leader and the party-owned newspaper Utusan Malaysia would be charged under the Anti-Fake News Act 2018.
Lim was responding to Ismail's warning that the special rights of the Malays and uniqueness of Islam would be eliminated if DAP and Pakatan Harapan win the election.
The turtle egg jibe refers to a controversy in 2015 when the caretaker minister came under fire from conservationists after a photograph of him at a dinner where turtle eggs were served went viral.
Ismail denied eating the eggs, citing his high cholesterol level and later filed a lawsuit against Sabah-based newspaper Daily Express over the matter.
Meanwhile, Lim pointed out that Harapan's basic documents, including its election manifesto, had been clear and specific in giving unconditional support to Article 153 on Malay special rights and Article 3 on Islam as the official religion of the Federation.
“There are people who are trying to put back the clock of Malaysian nation-building by sowing distrust, hatred, and animosity instead of fostering greater tolerance, harmony, and unity in multi-racial, multi-religious, multi-lingual and multi-cultural Malaysia.
“The 'turtle-egg' Umno (caretaker) minister is one such character, who is trying to frame the 14th GE as a battle between Malays and Chinese as well as between Islam and enemies of Islam, when it is, in fact, a battle between (caretaker prime minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) and Umno kleptocrats against the people of Malaysia.
“The 14th general election is a battle between Malaysians to want to save Malaysia from a kleptocracy ending up as a failed and rogue state and Malaysians who do not care whether Malaysia is the international laughing-stock because we have become a global kleptocracy as a result of the multi-billion dollar international 1MDB scandal,” he added in a statement.
Lim also warned that Ismail's and similar allegations were most irresponsible and dangerous, and if unchecked, could spark off chaos and conflagration in Malaysia.
“Will the 'turtle-egg' Umno minister be arrested and charged under the Anti-Fake News Act to save Malaysia from political desperadoes who are prepared to risk Malaysia's peace, harmony, and tolerance... in pursuit of their selfish ends?” he asked.
The Anti-Fake News Act was gazetted on Wednesday and came into power with immediate effect.
Press freedom groups and global watchdogs have criticised the new law on the grounds that it would further stifle press freedom and freedom of expression whereas Lim claimed that it was crafted to shield Najib from the 1MDB scandal. - mk
The Pawn Game In Johor...
The kleptocrats are losing much support in Johor which has now become a front line State. They are desperate.
Losing support of the Johor Malay voters. The Malays are of course closely identified with notions of bangsa, agama and negeri.
They will pounce on any issue, any story and anything else that will help turn the Johor Malay voters against the Pakatan Harapan. There will be plenty of focus over the next few weeks on very sensitive Johore issues.
It will not be beyond them to put in place a strategy to put the Opposition and the Johor household in direct conflict. All Malays in the past usually fall back on the household. It is their identity. The Johor Malays are no less.
This is being done in Johor because the State is moving towards the Opposition and this conflict may arrest the slide.
This could be another Pawn Game. - ostb
