Sebalik apa yang berlaku dengan kenyataan para menteri khasnya dari kementerian kesihatan, memberi gambaran yang kerajaan PN terdiri daripada mereka mempunyai pemikiran "mamba". (Mamba bahasa Kelantan diistilahkan kepada orang lelaki yang senjatanya hidup tidak hidup).
Seorang bersikap tidak menunjukkan dia berkelayakan sebagai menteri kesihatan manakala seorang lagi terus mempamerkan rupa diri lancau seperti mana lagak serba tahunya dalam parlimen. Dia boleh langgar begitu sahaja PKP.
Malang dihadapi Muhyiddin. Beliau sebagai PM barang kali tentu malu memiliki menteri berkenaan dan barisan kabinet yang mambai. Tetapi apa boleh buat, kerana keadaanya sendiri di hujung tanduk dan jadi PM dengan kuasa curi, menyebabkan dia tidak boleh berbuat apa-apa. Untuk pecat dan ganti lain, sudah tidak boleh lagi sebab yang dilantik itu dikira yang terbaik setelah disaring latar belakang.
Malaysia ada 15 negeri???
Mungkin apa yang berlaku kepada menteri kesihatan itu masih boleh dimaafkan sebab, bukan sahaja ilmu perubatan yang beliau tidak tahu, pengetahuan amnya gagal.
Tetapi kalau menteri agama yang tahu fekah, tasawuf, pandai berdoa pun berbuat benda yang sama, ia adalah sangat sangat teruk. Nasib kamu Muhyiddin. - mso
Sesuailah. Dua2 kaki kelentong. Zahid pernah beritahu mahkamah, minta tangguh bicara kerana beliau ada perjumpaan di pejabat Putrajaya. Tiba2 kantoi, tiada perjumpaan. Dia juga pernah bagi tau yang dia telah temui raja Arab yang derma berbilion2 kat Najib dulu. Tak sampai tiga bulan jadi kerajaan pintu belakang, dah mula nak kelentong sana sini...sana...sini... - f/bk
Kisah buluh lemang kahak lebai...
PAS adalah parti politik. Parti politik bukan agama. Parti politik macam PAS boleh berubah. Ada masa dia boleh jadi khadam DAP. Ada masa dia boleh kafirkan Umno. Ada masa dia boleh pula jadi perempuan simpanan Umno.
Ada masa dia boleh jadi pelacur politik murahan untuk siapa sahaja mendapatkan kuasa. Ada masa dia boleh jadi khadam siapa saja, dan dia boleh juga panggil siapa sahaja sebagai khadam.
Ada masa dia sokong Syiah dan ada masa dia benci Syiah. Ada masa dia boleh mengisytiharkan jihad lawan Kristian. Ada masa dia boleh kempen sokong parti Kristian di Sabah.
Ada masa dia menentang tanaman buluh, ada masa dia promosi buluh. Ada masa dia kata wajib sokong DAP, ada masa dia kata haram undi DAP. Anda masa dia kata haram undi calon bukan Islam, ada kala dia kata wajib undi bukan Islam.
Ada kala dia kata hudud boleh ditangguh, ada masa dia kata hudud tak boleh ditangguh lagi.
Ada masa dia bagitau kalau nak tukar PM kena buat usul di parlimen, ada masa dia bersekongkol boleh tukar PM tanpa sidang parlimen.
Jadi ... kesimpulannya, PAS adalah parti sama macam parti-parti politik yang lain, malah dalam banyak segi jauh lebih buruk dari parti-parti politik lain.
Bila dia pakai jubah, dia kata Allah suruh dia pakai jubah. Bila dia telanjang, dia kata Allah suruh dia telanjang. Bila dia bohong, dia kata Allah suruh dia bohong. Bila dia khianat, dia kata Allah suruh dia khianat.
Orang-orang dari parti lain pun ada juga yang pakai jubah, ada juga yang telanjang, ada juga yang bohong, ada juga yang khianat .., tapi mereka tak berani kata Allah yang suruh mereka lakukan itu semua. Alkisahnyer!!! - Jamzuri Ardani
Jangka hayat PN kurang 22 bulan...
Walaun kena ingat, UMNO nak kuasa sb nak duit. Sebab itu mereka bersetuju bersama PN walaupun persetujuan UMNO itu sehingga ke hari ini belum dibuktikan majoritinya.
Malangnya, UMNO sekarang rasa punca duit mereka tersekat. Pengerusi GLC dah kena balun dek pepuak PAS. Awal2 lagi Takiyuddin isytihar kesemua 18MP PAS akan dilantik Ketua GLC. Seolah2 dia nak bagitau bahawa PAS dah cop siap2 jawatan GLC dan UMNO toksah dok nyibuk laa nak jugak.
Habis tu, 54MP UMNO yg lain tu jadi apa? Jadi beruk? Tengok aje MP PAS dapat jadi Menteri, jadi Pengerusi GLC, jadi Duta Khas? Semalam 3 Pemuda PAS dapat jawatan kat Lembaga Getah. Ketua Pemuda UMNO dapat apa? Habuk pun tarak. PAS ingat UMNO tak nampak kaa benda2 ni?
Tu bab jawatan. Bab peruntukan COVID19 pun sama. Mat Said dah bising bila peruntukan DUN pun PAS dok main tarik tali dengan UMNO. Kenapa Mat Said sampai terpaksa "merafak sembah" kat MB Terengganu pada musim PKP ni? Kata PAS dan UMNO dah sekapal dalam PN. This is too much. Maknanya jika Mat Said tak bising, DUN2 UMNO akan terus dianaktirikan kerajaan PAS laa kan? UMNO Terengganu berdendam tu. UMNO Pusat ingat tu. Tu belum lagi jawatan exco. Ada 10 ADUN UMNO di Terengganu, takkan 1 pun tak dilantik exco. Kata dah nikah, sekalipun nikah free, tapi nak berjimak pun takkan macam2 halangan.
Itu baru sikit sebab PN pun belum 2 bulan usianya. Lagi lama, lagi parah ni rasanya. Najib sendiri pun dah terang2 mengkritik PN. Dia ada kes mahkamah tu. Sepatutnya Najiblah yg bermatian mempertahankan PN namun sebaliknya berlaku. Bayangkan MP UMNO yg tak ada kes mahkamah, tak dapat jawatan & tak dapat peruntukan.
Tak mustahil jika PN ditumbangkan oleh UMNO sendiri nanti. Nothing to lose what. UMNO pegang kuasa majoriti namun UMNO hanya jadi khadam dalam PN. Presiden, Timbalan Presiden, Ketua Pemuda tak dapat apa. Diorang ni tak nak Pengerusi GLC punya. Diorang nak menteri kanan. Ada kuota lagi kaa? Kuasa Allah kita tak tau. Jika PH ditumbangkan oleh PMnya yg mungkir janji sendiri, tak mustahil PN juga ditumbangkan oleh khadamnya iaitu UMNO yg punyai majoriti. Cuma ramai menjangkakan PN tumbang lebih pantas dari PH. Sama2 kita lihat. - Dr Ariff Kadir Al-Katami
Dear Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin...
The first signs appeared two weeks later when the menteri besar and chief ministers from opposition-controlled states were left out of a meeting to discuss matters related to the coronavirus pandemic. Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd Zuki Ali (photo, below) took the rap and apologised, but the damage had already been done.
Since then, there have been so many errors and omissions by your cabinet colleagues, party members, coalition partners and their leaders. Citizens are beginning to ask if you are really in charge or that there are forces – visible or otherwise – operating the joystick. If the gaffes of your ministers can be dismissed as “early day blues”, the same cannot be said of the subsequent announcements demands that have come to the fore.
It must be acknowledged that you head the weakest government since we gained independence 63 years ago. We know that you need every conceivable support from every nook and corner, but this does not mean having to forsake values. We understand the need to appease the warlords from the various parties which in turn will consolidate your position, lest you get swallowed by a party with a bigger number of seats in Parliament or individuals with lofty ambitions.
But you possibly can’t go wrong if you had observed the cornerstone of good governance – transparency and accountability – from the very start of your term. Throw in meritocracy, integrity and honesty and the results may have made you come out smelling like a bunch of roses.
Unthought of and arbitrary decisions are the last things that should be shoved down the throats of the rakyat. We are aware that the shylocks are demanding for their pound of flesh, the holy men are beginning to anticipate materialistic gain while the small-fry bystanders are eagerly awaiting the crumbs to be thrown at them.
Each time we watch you on TV, we can notice the stress, strain and pressure on your face. Yes, heavy is the head that wears the crown, but you have inherited an extra burden with each horse veering to its own ambitious destination.
Whose bird-brained idea was it to put members of parliament (MPs) and party stalwarts as heads of government-linked companies (GLCs) and government agencies? Was this debated, argued and justified by the cabinet or was it an issue of “you scratch my back, I scratch mine”? Or were you forced to agree?
The claim made by the de facto Law Minister Takiyuddin Hassan (photo,below) that “MPs are qualified” holds no water in the Malaysian context. Haven’t we learnt from mistakes made in taking such a nonsensical approach?
Without wanting to be accused of contempt or sub judice, allow us to touch on the evidence adduced in the on-going trials of three of them. These will suffice. From what we have read, hotels were purchased at highly-inflated prices and kickbacks were received from investing the people’s money in shares. The damage that has been done is humongous, and the only lesson the taxpayer has learnt is the art of enriching oneself and doing business the “Malaysian way”.
Let it be stated that the rakyat will have no problems accepting your proposals on appointing your friends or the choice of other parties provided they have the necessary prerequisites – appointments made on merit. Not all the incumbents were ineffectual or bungling idiots who had attempted to put their hands in the cashbox. So, why the change?
Sir, you have been in the cabinet for a long, long time. You have headed so many ministries, and your experience is impressive and the knowledge from dealing with people from all walks of life would make you the right man to make the right decisions. So, the phrase “fit and proper person test” would not be alien to you. Why isn’t this simple test being carried out? We would be able to get the crème de la crème of our talent.
Initially, we were reluctant in wanting to venture into saying this. Knowing our “business culture”, cronies will be lining up for contracts. Of course, they would charge a hefty fee and demand for the spoils to be shared. However, you have faltered, remained silent as incompetent and unqualified people have been allowed to occupy the hot seats, and you gave in to some ridiculous demands.
Almost daily, near demands come to the fore. We are told that a group in Sabah has made demands for posts in federal statutory bodies and a senatorship for an ex-minister who was defeated in the last hustings. But the credentials of some are far from acceptable. Each is carrying baggage – real huge and heavy ones.
Elsewhere, a kleptocrat is beating the war drums with snide remarks and his expectations of getting away with charges of felony. Instead of ignoring and containing the baloney, he gets your ear too.
Mr Prime Minister, this country is going back to bad old days of governance which you abhorred. You were unceremoniously removed for your bold stand against everything that was wrong. The people applauded you and supported you for your principled stand of foregoing all the power and perks that came as the country’s no 2.
You didn’t walk away like a coward and sell your conscience. You stood your ground and said your piece and they were compelled to get rid of you.
What has since gone wrong? What has made you change? You wouldn’t want to admit it but many feel that you are being held to ransom by some opportunistic political groups with their own agenda. If you stand up to these unprincipled guys, the rakyat will rise again in your support for a clean, honest and trustworthy government.
As you are aware, the nation is suffering from effects of the coronavirus but what is more contagious is a disease called the “truth deficiency syndrome” which brought the Barisan Nasional government almost two years ago. With the change in May 2018, it was contained but whatever traces remaining are imploding without control.
Are you going to contain this disorder by standing up, speaking up and making the right decisions? Or are you going to allow this government to operate on autopilot or remote control until there is no time to retreat? The choice is yours. - R.Nadeswaran,mk
Duit Deposit Bazar Ramadan
Sudah Di Telan Buaya...
Minister should stop trying to cheat poor Ramadan bazaar traders’ deposit money. After insisting Ramadan bazaars wont be cancelled, Minister no choice but to ban it
As early as March 31, Minister arrogantly said – “Just because Singapore no bazaars does not mean we say same thing.” Then Negeri Sembilan first state to cancel Ramadan bazaar, state of Terengganu followed suit
By April 2, Melaka, Kedah, Selangor cancel all Ramadan bazaars. April 14, almost all states banned Ramadan bazaars.
But different story at federal government. Federal government still considering options
very keen to have Ramadan bazaars
Ministers boys sold permits to traders in 66 locations in KL, Putrajaya. Minister convinced he could bulldoze the event His ministry reportedly planned to meet hawker associations to finalise stalls. Then on April 16 Minister finally threw in towel,no Ramadan bazaars in FT in any form this year
Yearly Ramadan bazaar provides opportunity for cronies to make killing,in March Minister revealed 66 locations could accommodate 50 stalls each. The calculator says that would be 3,300 permits up for grab. But the story of cash cow has just begun
Last year DBKL stubbornly wanted to be in charge of 2019 Ramadan bazaar.
Former FT Minister Khalid Samad exposed the reason, rental per lot RM500, could be "resold" for RM30,000 (depending on location) after going through chain of "rent-seekers" DBKL, with UMNO parasites, middle men, would resell permit
3,300 permits could fetch as much as RM99 million in free cash. Even at RM2,000 a piece, 3,300 lots could fetch RM6.6 million
- traders have demanded refund of their deposits
- now Ramadan Bazaar is officially cancelled.
- traders unhappy rental deposits carried forward to next year
- why should traders’ rental money be locked up for a year
- to deny traders their rightful money is pathetic, despicable and corrupt
- PM Muhyiddin should be ashamed minister trying to cheat poor traders
- Minister's minions had already split money and spent it
- impossible to fully refund back to traders (This is adapted from Finance Twitter) - OSTB
