BN Should Win With Honour In The Teluk Intan By-Election And Not Win Dirty Through Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi And Wee Ka Siong’s Lies About The PR Penang State Government To Create Hatred Against Dyana Sofya.(en/cn)

Press Statement By Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng In Komtar, George Town On 27.5.2014.

BN should win with honour in the Teluk Intan by-election and not win dirty through Home Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and MCA Deputy President Wee Ka Siong’s lies about the PR Penang state government to create hatred against DAP Candidate for Teluk Intan Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud. Ahmad Zahid had claimed that Pakatan Rakyat only fights for the rights of criminals, partly because it is funded by criminals in the last general election.

This is a blatant lie because if true, PR leaders would have been charged under existing criminal laws for being involved with criminals. Zahid Hamidi could not produce any proof except to claim that the late Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh did not visit a policeman from his constituency in Bukit Glugor who had died in the line of duty in Melaka.

This attack against a dead leader like Karpal is most disrespectful and dishonourable because Karpal is not around to defend himself. Karpal did not visit the policeman, Corporal Zal Azri because he was not in Penang at that time. However it is untrue that PR leaders did not show any concern.

Regretfully, Zahid did not mention that I had personally handed over a RM 3,000 contribution from the Penang state government to his widow, Atiqah Mohd Rsdi witnessed by Penang Chief Police Officer Datuk Wira Abdul Rahim Hanafi(see Sinar Harian report on 13 November 2013) I am disappointed that Zahid is now politicizing the important issue of national security, public order and safety.

Further the Penang state government contributed the highest amount amongst all state governments by giving RM30,000 per policemen/soldier who lost their lives defending the country’s sovereignty against terrorists invading Lahad Datu in Sabah. The Penang state government contributed a total of RM 300,000 to 8 policemen and 2 soldiers who lost their lives in a ceremony witnessed by Zahid Hamidi himself.

Wee Ka Siong had also attacked Dyana for her double standard stand in opposing the hike of electricity tariff but not daring to comment on the 300% tariff hike on water in DAP-led Penang since 2008. (see The Sun report on 25 May) This is untrue as the Penang state government did not increase water tariffs by 300% since 2008. The Penang government has just proposed and is awaiting approval from the Federal government for an increase in domestic water tariffs of 20%, to prevent water rationing by reducing excessive water usage.

The Penang state government is willing to be criticized for increasing domestic water tariffs by 20% to prevent water rationing but not the 300% hike lie. Increasing domestic water tariffs by 20% is preferable to imposing water rationing. I am disappointed that Wee Ka Siong can so quickly abandon his promise to stick to the politics of right and truth after winning election as MCA Deputy President.

国阵欲在安顺补选中取得胜利,就应光明磊落地去赢取支持,而非耍尽手段,透过拿督斯里阿末查希及魏家祥摸黑槟州民联政府,制造民众对黛安娜的憎恨。

国阵欲在安顺补选中取得胜利,就应光明磊落地去赢取支持,而非耍尽手段,透过内政部长拿督斯里阿末查希及马华署理总会长魏家祥摸黑槟州民联政府,制造民众对行动党安顺补选候选人黛安娜的憎恨。内长之前表示,民联只为罪犯争取权益,某程度上是上届大选时,一些罪犯给予民联金钱援助。

这根本是一项无谓的指控,如果一切属实,“和罪犯同流合污”的民联领袖早就在刑事法之下被检控了。阿末扎希无法出示任何证据,只表示前武吉牛汝莪区国会议员,即已故卡巴星议员,没有探视一名在马六甲执勤时殉职的警员,而有关警员乃来自卡巴星的选区。

对一名已故的领袖做出如此的攻击是不敬且不公的,因为卡巴星已不在人世,无法为自己辩护。卡巴星没有探视有关警员,原因是当时他并不在槟城。即便如此,若因为这样而说民联领袖不关心此事,则完全不正确。

很遗憾的,阿末查希只字不提我曾亲自移交来自槟州政府的3千令吉抚恤金,给有关警员的遗孀Atiqah Mohd Rsdi ,并获得槟州总警长拿督威拉阿都拉欣韩纳菲(请参考2013年11月13日的《阳光日报》)在场见证。我对阿末查希政治化国家安全、公共次序及安全等重要问题,感到失望。

再说,槟州政府是所有州政府当中,分发最高抚恤金给在沙巴拿笃恐怖份子入侵事件中牺牲的军警人员。槟州政府分发3万令吉给每名因保卫国家主权而不幸牺性命的警察及军人。槟州政府在一项仪式上,共发出30万令吉给殉职的8名警员及2名军人,而这项仪式,阿末查希本人也有出席见证。

魏家祥也攻击戴安娜具双重标准,因她反对电费起价,却不敢对行动党领导的槟州政府自2008年后调整水费高达300%而作出任何评论(请参考《太阳报》于5月25日的报导)。这是不正确的,因为槟州政府并没有在2008年后调整水费高达300%!槟州政府仅是为了避免过度浪费水源、引致配水不便,而建议调整家用水费20%,目前还在等待联邦政府的批准公文。

槟州政府愿意为了避免配水,而被批评调整水费20%,但却不是因类水费调涨300%的谎言而被批评。调整水费20%总比实施配水制的建议来得更好。我对魏家祥中选署理总会长后,这么快忘却了他自己承诺要一个政治正确及寻求真理的政治承诺,感到失望。
