Deepavali Message 2011(en/cn)

The Abuses Of Power, Wrongdoing And Financial Malpractices Exposed in The 2010 Auditor-General Report Will Be Repeated Next Year Unless Action Is Taken Against The Departments And Officers Responsible.

DAP wishes all Hindus a Happy Deepavali with the hope that Malaysians can also celebrate a victory of good policies over bad policies. For good to prevail, we must shine our light on good policies that benefit the people. However shining the light on these wrongdoings will be meaningless if no action is taken.

Unfortunately the 2010 Auditor-General Report reminds Malaysians of everything that is wrong in the BN Federal government. Night-vision marine binoculars costing only RM 1,940 are bought at a price of RM56,350, a TV LCD and DVD player bought with a contract price of RM16,100 was supplied with an inferior brand valued at only RM195; RM770,000 was spent to supply electricity to one house; more than a billion ringgit in additional costs are incurred for poorly supervised projects and even a Minister is involved when a RM73.6 million cattle-farming project is given to her family.
The Auditor-General has done his duty to shine the light at all the wrongdoings. However, the abuses of power, wrongdoings and financial malpractices exposed in the 2010 Auditor-General report will be certainly repeated next year unless action is taken against the departments, officials and even the Ministers responsible.

The Federal government has failed to stop the rot of wrongdoing, abuses of power and financial malpractices over the last 54 years. Only a change of government can bring about the transformation for good to win over bad.

A government can only prove its sincerity about implementing good policies that benefit the people, by “institutionalising” the people-centric policies by practicing it yearly not once every 5 years or when there are elections. Giving money once every 5 years is obviously targeted to buying votes and an exercise in money politics. There is only sincerity in making good people-centric policies when such financial assistance to the people is given yearly.

2011 DAP Deepavali Message By DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 27.10.2011

民主行动党秘书长林冠英于2011年10月27日在吉隆坡发表的屠妖节献词:

除非当局采取严厉的行动,对付那些负责的部门与官员,否则在2010年度总稽查师报告中所出现的滥权、渎职及财政纰漏问题,依然会在未来重复地发生。

民主行动党祝贺所有兴都教徒屠妖节快乐,也希望马来西亚人民可以为好政策战胜坏政策而庆祝。要让好事继续存在,我们需要点燃利民好政策的曙光。然而,只是点燃希望之光、没有就舞弊事件的发生采取严厉的对付行动,是毫无意义的。

不幸的是,2010年总稽查报告提醒全体马来西亚人国阵联邦政府做错的事。当局以5万6350令吉购买一副价值1940令吉的夜用海底望远镜;以1万6100令吉购买只值195令吉的液晶电视和光碟机;花费77万令吉为一所房子提供电供;由于一些工程监督不当,导致额外费用超过1亿令吉,而一名部长也涉及她的家人获颁7360万令吉的养牛场工程。

总稽查司已经尽责指出所有的纰漏,不过,除非当局采取严厉的行动,对付那些负责的部门、官员及部长,否则在2010年度总稽查师报告中所出现的滥权、渎职及财政纰漏问题,依然会在未来重复地发生。

联邦政府在过去54年,一直无力纠正好那些舞弊、滥权及财政纰漏。唯有改朝换代,才可以拨乱反正。

一个政府只能通过实施利民良政才能证明它的诚意,包括制度化民本政策,每年都推行这些证策,而不是等到每五年一次的大选,每五年才给钱一次,很明显地是志在买票的金钱政治。唯有每年发放援助金给人民,才算是真正制定良好的民本政策。

林冠英
