The headlines “Lack of largesse triggers rebellion in Khalid’s backyard” in Malaysian Insider dated March 14th, 2010 caught my attention. The article makes reference to the unhappiness among some PKR Kuala Selangor division members who are not too happy with the Menteri Besar of Selangor, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim; reportedly for not giving its members some top party post and business contracts. It was also reported that the disgruntled members will attempt to cause a furor at today’s PKR Selangor division AGM that will be attended by TS Khalid Ibrahim himself.

If the above report is true, I would like to advise TS Khalid Ibrahim, to stick to his guns and not to be shaken by any threats by some disgruntled members. Should they threatened to quit, let them quit, and your action not to be cowed by threats will definitely win the respect of your party members. Please remember that as a Menteri Besar, he has a much larger responsibility, i.e. to the entire people of the state, and not merely to his own constituents and his division party members.. And the few in his division who seemed to inhibit elements of self interest and greed ought to be shown the exit door, if they persist with their selfish interest and bad attitudes.

It would seem to me that this business of demanding for top party posts and business contracts among politicians (the mediocre ones included) is a function in politics. If UMNO is said to be corrupt to the core, I suppose PKR politicians too are trying hard to be in league with UMNO, and the few disgruntled PKR Kuala Selangor division members have demonstrated themselves to be exactly that. If TS Khalid Ibrahim succumbs to their demands, he thus opens the flood gates to more demands from other division members, and this will not end.

Dear Johan5150,

I thought there are 4 companies involved in the Klang river rehabilitation project i.e. TSS Mako Engineering, GJA Engineering, Wessex Water and DPZ Asia, and not just two companies. Need to check on this.

,,,if its a win/win,why not ? the klang river has tin too, don't ever forget that trillions too !!

,,,improve drainage is just a cover-up guys, be aware of the hidden agenda-lah.

,,,the sungai besi camp is sitting on a mountain of tin too.

,,,i smell something fishy here !

,,,what TS Khalid must remember is that the trouble with the profit system has always been that it was highly unprofitable to the rakyat.

Capt's Longhouse said...


,,,the rm50b Klang River rehabilitation project should be reviewed again instead it should be providing billions back to the nation from its potential tin mining and sandy income ?.
,,,indeed, there are lots of "trash" to be weeded from the system rather than just from the klang river !.

dear Dato,

1. Would you highlight his fact to the authorities, there is money to be made for the nation here !. And not just spending taxe payor money only. geee !!
2. This is very similar to the Bakum Dam project whereby Ting Pek King harvested billions of timber for free !.

You should ask Malaysia-Today or other bloggers to investigate it. Though I'm a Pakatan supporter but if there is corruption involved then we need to shed some lights on it.
