PENALISING PENANGITES?

It was announce that two Penang Mega Projects, PORR and Penang Monorail is put off for the time being.

As reported in Malaysiakini, the government has put off two major projects in the state - the RM2 billion monorail and RM1.5 billion Penang Outer Ring Road (Porr). Malaysiakini also quoted that the government decision might anger Penangites.

In my opinion, the Federal government MUST justify the cancellation of these two projects. Was is money or was it just plain penalizing the Islander for its strong support for DAP.

I think PORR has been a controversy ever since the project was announce. From its original route with many request for adjustment. Malaysia maybe the only few country in the world that build roads more than improving its public transportation. Shelving it probably a good idea, so that it will encourage the use of public transportation. However, Penang is in a desperate need for an efficient public transportation.

Monorail project should go on. Just look at most Penang' roads, the traffic jams are terrible. Monorail would be a good alternative. I think most Penangites would agree with me.

We seriously need less roads, what we really need is a good public transportation in all our cities.

What so special about Penang and wanted special treatment from the Federal Government?

What has LGE done for the better of Penang? What DAP's 5 Year Plan? What was done only talk, talk and talk. Just try to find "mistakes" from previous administration. What about administration?

Just better public transport and not asking anything special!

100 days, you want to see results! what has the previous government done in 50 years.

It is not trying to find mistakes but to clear the "shit" that they left from the 50 years!

DAP has been in Penang slightly over 100 days...and you are asking about results? how foolish could be of you...it is like asking a new born baby to start talking after 100 days...what utter rubbish....

Before asking about results, and going into a so-called 5 year plan...one needs to understand simple economics....DAP is not finding mistake...but only reporting the truth....the coffers in the council has been emptied....what is the point of talking about 5 year plan and promising roses while you only have an empty bank account...the Rakyat money has been squandered away by the previous administration...

I fully support DAP in all its quest to uncover the years of lies and deceits....mind you, I am not a member of any opposition party..but just an ordinary folk very concerned about the state of our nation...

Penalising penang people for their choices will only draw the people furhter away from BN...one could see the fool hardyness of such politicians....the next election will surely spell the demise of politicians who squandered our money for the benefit of their cronies....

The money belongs to the people...penang and selangor are the biggest contributor of taxes to the federal government....without proper insfrastructure...it will only draw investors away....the money belongs to the people...make it work for them, instead of punishing them...

in future, pls use common sense before your post such ludricous statements....it only showed how shallowed minded your are...remember, we are paying taxes and are not asking for any special treatment...just simple things to make our life better.... that's all....

LGE is projecting his image whereas he's nothing more than shit. Just shit. Prove your vision, prove your ability in management and administration and not rhetoric. Like father like son. Racist

I'll say next year Penangites should pay taxes to the State Govt!
Certainly the money will not be used to pay the BN ministers' holiday!

1st, they cancel off the subsidy for petrol... now they halt the monorail and PORR project.... im going to ask a simple question... where does all the Rakyats' money went to?? they already saved up to 23 billions by canceling petrol subsidy n they can easily fund the monorail and PORR which will only cost 2 billion each...

n to those who criticized LGE, u should ask urself who is the one making LGE having a hard time now... (u should know urself who)--> 1st they encourage us to go for public transport when they hiked the petrol price but now they are also the one canceling all the public transports project for the rakyat.... these really pisses me off n they will nvr ever gain my vote for the coming election...
