PERMOHONAN PENGANGKUTAN AWAM ALTERNATIF BAGI MENGURANGKAN MASALAH KESESAKAN LALULINTAS DI PULAU PINANG

Dengan hormatnya saya ingin menarik perhatian YB Datuk Seri berhubung perkara tersebut di atas.

2. Dimaklumkan bahawa jumlah kenderaan keluar-masuk ke negeri ini kian bertambah dan menyebabkan kesesakan lalulintas yang kian meruncing. Kerajaan Negeri mengharapkan janji mantan Perdana Menteri dan juga YAB Perdana Menteri kini untuk membina dan membiayai sistem perkhidmatan LRT atau MRT dapat ditunaikan. Sungguhpun Kerajaan Negeri Pulau Pinang lebih cenderung kepada sistem ‘tram’, maka Kerajaan Negeri sedia menerima sistem pengangkutan awam yang dipilih dan dibiayai oleh
Kerajaan Pusat.

Malaysia’s Failure To Protect Malaysians, Ensure Security And Stop Illegal Filipino Immigrants From Freely Entering Sabah To Threaten Malaysians Highlighted Only When A Foreign Tourist Is Killed And Another Kidnapped. (en/bm/cn)

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 19.11.2013.

Malaysia’s failure to protect Malaysians, ensure security and stop illegal Filipinbo immigrants from freely entering Sabah to threaten Malaysians highlighted only when a foreign tourist is killed and another kidnapped. Taiwanese media and TV stations have painted a negative picture of Malaysia as a failed state by reporting on alleged lax security, slow police response and bad PR in handling the incident that involved two Taiwanese victims.

There is a lack of persistence and absence of disciplined focus on fundamentals of maintaining security. Malaysian police had said that a resort guard ran to inform the General Operations Force (GOF) base about 800m away. Taiwanese television reported that when a guard who heard the gunshots during the incident tried to contact police, eight of the officers on the island did not respond to him.

UMNO’s Racist Ideology And Extremist Policies That Entitles UMNO Being Masters Whilst Others Must Be Subservient Has Caused Friction Not Just Between Putrajaya And Sabah/Sarawak But Also Between Ordinary Malaysians Especially Non-Malays And Non-Muslims.

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 17.11.2013.

Sarawak Land Development Minister Tan Sri Dr James Masing has accused young Umno leaders of causing friction between Putrajaya and the Sarawak state government, by adopting the attitude that UMNO are the masters and leaders from Sarawak and Sabah should be subservient to them. This surprising attack against UMNO leaders show that the people of Sabah and Sarawak has begun to realise that they are not being accorded full respect but instead are exploited.

James is wrong in blaming UMNO young leaders for their lack of understanding of the Malaysia Agreement and how the federation was formed, and suggested that UMNO relearn the history of Malaysia and the special autonomy enjoyed by Sabah and Sarawak. Instead, it is UMNO’s racist ideology and extremist policies that entitles UMNO being masters whilst others must be subservient that has caused friction not just between Putrajaya and Sabah/Sarawak but also between ordinary Malaysians especially non-Malays and non-Muslims.
