As I Have Explained The Sale By Open Tender Of The 1.1 Acre Taman Manggis Land Sales, Teng Chang Yeow Should Explain The Cheap Sale Of Over 2,000 Acres of State Land But Also Why 1,600 Acres Of Reclaimed Land Off Butterworth Were Given Free To Rayston?(en/cn)

As I have explained the sale by open tender of the 1.1 acre Taman Manggis Land Sales, BN Chairman Teng Chang Yeow should explain the cheap sale of over 2,000 acres of state land but also why 1,600 acres of reclaimed land off Butterworth were given free to Rayston Consortium(Butterworth) Sdn Bhd or Rayston when he was part of the previous BN government. BN has clearly run out of political capital when it resorted to not only attacking members of my family but also even my landlady.

BN had lodged reports with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission claiming that I had actually owned the house I was renting. Now they turn around and admit my landlady owned the house but she has a share in the Taman Manggis land. First, my landlady did not bid for the land. She is also not part of any company bidding from the land.

As the Taman Manggis land is by open tender, anyone can bid. Even my landlady or Tan Sri Syed Moktar can also bid and will be awarded if they pay the highest price. BN has no shame in harrassing my landlady when she did not even bid for the 1.1 acre piece of land?

Instead of talking of 1.1 acre piece of land, BN should answer for the nearly 4,000 acres of state land sold without open competitive tender as follows:-

a) In the Tanjong Tokong Reclamation, under Agreements dated 1990 & 1999, the developer was given the right to reclaim and develop 980 acres of land off Tanjong Tokong at the price of RM 1 per square foot!

b) 750 acres of land in Batu Kawan was sold in 2004 at between RM3.05 to RM 4 per square feet.

c) As for the Jelutong Expressway, under Agreements dated 1997, 2002 & 2003, the developer was given the right to reclaim 325 acres of land in exchange for constructing the Jelutong Expressway at an estimated cost of RM300 million and cash payment of RM25.4 million. In other words, the total cost is RM325.4 million for 325 acres or the cost of reclaimed land at Jelutong Expressway is RM 1 million per acre or over RM 20 per square feet. What’s more the developer can pay RM 25.4 million over 10 years from 2005 up to 2015 – surely a record for length of payment period.

d) 1,600 acres of reclaimed land off Butterworth was given to Rayston free. Rayston only had to pay RM50 million reclamation cost and build a highway which they are paying through toll collections.

Teng should also explain why 18.7 acres land in Midlands Court and the site of Prangin Mall was sold by tender but not to the highest bidder. Instead for both sites, the 2nd highest bidder was selected. Finally if BN is sincere about building low-cost housing, why is it that BN did not fulfill its promise and plans to build two 17-storey block of low-cost flats on the present 1st Avenue and Traders Hotel sites? This caused financial losses to the people of Penang and were amongst the many reasons Gerakan lost all its seats and BN was rejected in the 2008 general elections.

Clearly, BN is using the Taman Manggis issue to try to save BN Penang Chair Teng Chang Yeow for failing to show proof that myself, Chow Kon Yeow, Phee Boon Poh, Wong Hon Wai and Ng Wei Aik has a personal interest in the hospital project. BN is desperately clutching at straws by even attacking my landlady even though she did not bid for the land. Teng knows he is lying because the sale of the Taman Manggis land was conducted by open competitive tender where anyone bidding the highest price will be awarded to build a private hospital.

Unless Teng answer, the state government would no longer respond to BN’s lies and attacks.

槟州首长林冠英于2012年9月7日在乔治市光大发表声明:

我已经解释山竹园1.1英亩地段是公开招标出售,邓章耀也应该解释为什么贱卖超过2千英亩州土地,还有免费赠送Rayston北海 1600英亩的填海范围?

我已经解释山竹园1.1英亩地段是公开招标出售,邓章耀也应该解释为什么前朝政府贱卖超过2千英亩州土地,还有免费赠送Rayston Consortium(北海)有限公司1600英亩的北海填海范围?邓章耀当时是前朝州政府的一分子。国阵明显已耗尽政治资本,所以不只攻击我家人,也包括我的女屋主。

国阵已向反贪会报案,指我现租的屋子是我的产业,现在他们转过来承认屋子是女屋主的,但她有参与山竹园地段交易。

与其针对1.1依格的土地小题大作,国阵应该就没有公开招标出售近4千平方尺的土地一事作出解释:

a) 丹绒道光填海地在1990及1999年的合约中,前朝政府让发展商以每平方尺1令吉的价格,在丹绒道光进行填海发展980英亩的土地。

b) 在2004年,峇都加湾750英亩以每平方尺3.05至4令吉的价格出售。

c) 日落洞高速公路在1997年、2002年及2003年的合同中,前朝政府让发展商以2540万令吉及一条价值3亿令吉的日落洞高速公路,进行填海发展325.4英亩的土地。换句话说,日落洞高速公路的325英亩地段总值3亿2540万令吉,或 1英亩100万令吉,或每平方尺20令吉。更何况,发展商可以用10年(2005年至2015年)偿还2540万令吉,这么长的偿还期,肯定破了偿还期限记录。

d)免费赠送Rayston Consortium(北海)有限公司1600英亩的北海填海范围。Rayston 只需要缴付5千万令吉的填海费,以及承建一条大道的费用而已,而这些费用,也可以靠收过路费赚回的。

邓章耀也应该解释为什么在Midlands Counrt 及柏兰宜广场地段的18.7英亩经过招标却不是最高价者得。而是把土地出售给第二高价的竞标者。最后,如果国阵是真心诚意要兴建廉价屋,为什么国阵没有履行诺言和计划,在之前的1st Avenue 及Traders Hotel 的原址兴建两座17层楼的廉价组屋?这让槟州人民造成巨大的损失,这也是为什么民政党失去所有议席及国阵在2008年全国大选被选民拒绝的原因。

很明显地,国阵只是利用山竹园的课题,来拯救国阵槟州主席邓章耀,他们根本没有办法证明曹观友、彭文宝、黄汉伟及黄污益在医院工程涉及私人利益。国阵真的 是黔驴技穷,连我的屋主也要攻击,而她根本没有参与竞标。邓章耀知道自己撒了谎,因为山竹园的土地是在公开招标的情况下出售的,任何人都可以用最高的价格 来购买土地、兴建私人医院。

除非邓章耀回答我们的问题,否则州政府将不会再回应国阵的任何谎言及攻击性言论。

林冠英
