Ha, ha, ha…
Really, things can change in a day. The former UMNO yes-men, Gerakan is now standing up for its rights; not the rights of Penangnites, mind you.
In the New Straits Times:
GERAKAN acting president and former Penang chief minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said infrastructure projects promised by the federal government should continue for the benefit of the people.
Citing the second Penang Bridge, Penang Outer Ring Road, Monorail, public transport system and expansions of the airport and port as examples, Koh said: “These projects are crucial for the future economy of Penang and its neighbouring states.
“Gerakan appeals to the federal government to expedite the implementation of these projects.”
Koh made it clear that the party was issuing the statement in response to Umno Penang’s call to scrap the projects. He said the successful implementation of the projects would ensure that Penang would continue to grow as the hub for the Northern Corridor Economic Region (NCER) and Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle.
On Thursday, Penang Umno held an emergency meeting and later declared that the party would press the prime minister to stop the implementation of all mega projects, including those planned under the NCER.
UMNO is so vindictive. Have they ever asked “what the people want?”
It is also what UMNO wants. UMNO wants this, wants that. Hell, it doesn’t even ask the Malays, who they claim to represent “what do you want?”.
UMNO, I have realised through they years DOES NOT EQUAL to MALAYS.
UMNO = vindictive. Malays = forgiving and forgetting.
If UMNO really represents the Malays, why are they so many poor Malays around?
