PRIME Minister Mohd Najib Abdul Razak, who celebrated his 100th day in office yesterday, announced a slew of measures as a gift to the people.

He also pledged to take drastic measures to fight crime and corruption.

Among other things, according to media reports, he announced a 20-percent discount for frequent pre-paid toll users and up to 70 percent reduction for driving license fees for motorcycle riders.

Other measures include:

1. Priority to tenants in the Federal Territory to buy the 44,000-housing units on offer;

2. Small traders and vendors in the Federal Territory will be given a 50-percent discount for their fee renewals.

He said, an appeal for the licence fee to be reduced was made at a function he attended with the Federation of Malay Hawkers and Petty Traders Associations of Malaysia in Tanjung Karang, Selangor, last month.;

3. RM150 million will be allocated to Tabung Ekonomi Kumpulan Usaha Niaga (Tekun) and RM15 million to young Indian entrepreneurs;

4. More taxi permits to be issued. As of now there are 70,000 individual taxi permits and 3,000 more permits will be approved in the next three months;

5. Drastic measures to be taken to fight crime and corruption, the details of which will be revealed at the end of this month;

6. Overcoming the birth certificates issue in Sabah and Sarawak. Since 2005, Sabah has 36,000 applications and 92 percent of which have been approved. Sarawak has 19,000 applications and 80 percent of which have also been approved;

7. As of last month, 46 percent out of 34,000 delayed citizenship applications had been resolved. The rest will be resolved by year’s end;

8. More roads will be built in Sabah and Sarawak during the 10th Malaysian Plan;

9. Water and electricity supplies in Sabah and Sarawak will also be improved, details of which will be announced at the end of this month;

10. Some 20,000 family members of urban hardcore poor will be given 10,000 houses under Skim Amanah Saham Wawasan trust fund; and

11. A new RM10-billion “1Malaysia Trust Fund” will be launched and is open to Malaysians aged 18 years and above.

These and the hints that more good things are to come were made at a gathering of about 3,000 – including school children -- at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

The announcements were in addition to the larger measures like opening up of the banking sector, the abandonment of the Bumiputera shareholding requirement for new IPOs and for 27 sub-sectors of the services industry, the abandonment of the teaching of science and mathematics in schools in English and the proposal to build a third bridge linking Malaysia and Singapore, which he had announced earlier.

Salam Datuk AKJ

Seronok dengar pengumuman demi pengumuman yang sekali pandang nampak menggembira dan menguntungkan kita. Yang dulu-dulu pun banyak umum itu dan ini, semuanya ke arah kebaikan. Tapi banyak daripadanya jadi tidak seronok bila memasuki peringkat pelaksanaan. Macam mana nak pilih sasaran, itulah yang lazim menjadi punca tidak seronok. Macam mana nak pilih siapa yang berulang alik ke tempat kerja untuk diberi diskaun tol tu. Macam mana nak bezakan yang tinggal di Seremban dan kerja di Kuala Lumpur dengan yang sekali sekala ikut laluan tu. Permit teksi tu, siapa yang dapat. Proses pemberian kerakyatan pun tak sepatutnya dilonggarkan semata-mata dijadikan sebagai gula-gula. Rumah DBKL yang akan dijual tu pun, bakal jadi masalah dari segi pengurusan dan penyenggaraannya, serta akan berlaku ketirisan bila jual beli akan berlaku selepas itu. Wallahua'lam.

Dear DAKJ

PM KPI

So, what do you thing about Dato’ Najib KPI. Are you satisfied or vise versa? It is not easy to become a prime minister especially to satisfy everybody. But for sure, his KPI is better than previous PM.

At least, he has a lot of idea to make Malaysia wealth and prosperity. He is not afraid to take oath in mosque; not like his competitor. He is also opened for a discussion with PAS regarding United Government; not like the one who claimed to be an Islamic Party but accused everything and anything towards UMNO. On the same time, they are not able to handle a pig slaughter house in Kedah.

He announced a discount; reduce highway tolls and going to built new roads in east Malaysia. He also replied email to the sender. Meaning, he knows the priority and implements all tasks according to priority. Thumb up. Sekian, TQ.

PM najib and warlords of UMNO have done it again.
Rather than resolving internal issues and malays woes, they rather sell their souls to other races in hope what they have in hands are not taken.
PM Najib and warlords have gathered enough war chests to live a life of happiness and cheerfulness forgetting that those who have helped them.
Looks like Pak Lah legacies continues. Mahathir mistakes won't be forgotten and Anuar claims lingers on.
how easily malays forget.

Datuk Scribe,

Ini kata Bernama Tok.

Speaking at the "100 Days of Najib with the People" function at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) here, Najib said a 20 per cent discount would be given to users of the pre-paid Smart Tag and Touch n Go cards who pay toll 80 times or more in a month.

Jadi Datuk, macam Datuk kata dalam tampalan lalu, walhasil balik asal.

Betullah meritokrasi. Orang kayajuga yang dapat.

Siapa yang dapat diskaum?

Orang kaya dan mampu yang pakai Smart tag dan touch&go.

Kami miskin yang beratur bayor tunai ni macam mana?

Kumpoi risit Yeop, kumpoi.Lepas tu kita bawa ramai2 jumpa Najib. Kalau tidak Yeop, melepas lagi kita.

India dapat RM15 juta Yeop. Tapi Najib tutup MeCD.

Parah jadi Melayu Yeop.

Mr. Mahid said...

Assalamualaikum Datuk,

The only measure that troubles my mind is that of the 20% discount for the frequent pre-paid (Touch 'n Go and SmartTag) toll users. Why only pre-paid toll users? And why is it only for frequent users? Isn't it better if we revise the overall toll rates to help ease the burden of all road users?

It leaves a little bit of bitter aftertaste.

Y.Bhg Datuk,

Ini saya saja nak kemukakan sedikit persoalan yang agak 'naive':

1. Adakah acara duduk bersila di atas lantai yang dilakukan oleh pembesar-pembesar BN semalam itu merupakan satu gimik murahan atau kelangsungan seruan PM supaya pembesar-pembesar tidak disambut secara besar-besaran dengan permaidani merah, bunga manggar dan lain-lain?

2. Adakah pembacaan sajak/bermadah oleh PM Najib itu merupakan satu 'pre-requisite' untuk sesiapa saja yang hendak memegang tampuk PM selepas ini? Hehehe. Dah macam-macam sajak dah yang kita dengar ni....

Terima kasih

Azman Mohd Isa

Congratulations, Najib. It is a great initiative. Long overdue to overhaul to whole economic system.
Stay focus and do what is necessary for the benefits of all Malaysians particularly the bumiputras. Forget about the 30% per cent quota. The best measurement to gauge whether the bumiputras are moving forward is to measure the percentage of quality of life they are enjoying especially the quality of life in the rural area. Get all the bimiputras out of poverty line (rural and urban poverty) and don't think so much of the 30% target. Emphasis should be given to get the bumiputra children the maximum opportunity and the best quality of education for them.

EDUCATION IS POWER !! That is the best tool to get the bumiputras stand on their own feet. They will survive with better education, no matter where you throw them even right in the centre of a barren island. Every bumiputra family members must have at least one professional.

Pasal nak bagi kerakyatan tu 100% tak setuju. Sebab apa? Nak dapat undi?

Bagi permit teksi juga bukan penyelesaian yang baik untuk menyelesaikan tahap perkhidmatan teksi di negara ni. Tempat orang lain pakai camry, kita masih dengan proton model 1985.

Kalaulah majils tu Najib buat pengumuman menyambung semula projek Jambatan Bengkok, nescaya rakyat akan bangkit ceria dan menyokong kerajaan semula.

Salaam, Dato'

I note that Sdr Syed Mahmod has posted a comment: "they rather sell their souls to other races...."

Could I please request the good Syed Mahmod to explain and justify his comment?

It seems to this humble writer that there appears to be a lot of angst and self-denial amongst certain quarters in the country about the economy, liberalisation, globalisation, competitiveness etc. All of which get conveniently lumped under tye issue of "race" and "privileges".

It's almost as if these quarters expect a "free ride" on the coat tails of liberalisation and globalisation. Or that they seem to be stuck in some kind of time warp where competition does not exist and benefits are guaranteed in perpetuity. It's almost as if Malaysia is some sort of Shangri-la where things should never change and where the sun always shines no matter how dismal the environment in the outside world.

Why, it's almost as if these quarters are afraid of competition. Or that they would prefer to have competition defined on their own terms and according to their own agendas. Or that they are in denial about basic economic facts.

It would be a tad rude to label such a worldview as "misguided" or "self-delusional", but I would be interested to find out why exactly Syed Mahmod and others who share his mindset feel, think and comment the way they do.

Dear Datuk KJ,

In a nutshell, it was worth waiting for when PM Najib took the opportunity to unveil his 100 days in office of the prime minister.

Najib has also chosen the "Ying & Yang" along with his favourite lucky number "11" as his push button to start his day. Well done Mr. Prime Minister but not all were roses of glory in your first 100 days as our PM.

Tun Mahathir's comments on Najib's 100 days were both sweet and bitter when he had defended his right to comment, just like all of us in the name of press freedom, etc. Perhaps, as a fellow Muslim either good or bad, Tun Mahathir should leave Tun Abdullah Badawi in peace and not to demoralise him, even if he is not in the same league
as himself.

Najib's 100 days in office will definitely go into history as part of the Razak's legacy for this nation. I opined that Najib's KPIs should not be assessed in his 100 days, but perhaps the next thousand days and beyond.

Najib is known to be a man in a hurry, but a highly misunderstood leader in the making. In life, nobody is perfect and borrowing the quote from Francois Fenelon, "It is only imperfection that complains of what is imperfect. The more perfect we are,the more gentle and quiet we become towards the defects of others."

100 day's assessment is too short to evaluate the performance of the prime minister,but some say that Najib has revealed a little to much and thus it has devalued his visionary agenda in the eyes of the public. In short,we can't expect to be measured in tandem to the momentum of Najib's speed and his mobility, which will give some negative effects that will only confuse the rakyat.

I believe Najib has successfully achieved what he had intended to do in changing the mindset of the people, with all his gimmicks and the handout of political, economic and social goodies. Some indecisive Malaysians are the most ungrateful lot, as they will not be happy or satisfy in whatever the BN government had offered during the last 52 years of governance.

It is not easy for Najib to unwind this negative perception of things that had been fueled by the emotions from the frustrated opposition camp. Under such a difficult situation, Najib should move forward and do what he believes is right for the people with absolute sincerity and transparency.

Najib has compromised to Tun Mahathir in the past when he was not appointed as the DPM by virtue of his political seniority, a blunder which Tun himself had admitted in public. Najib had compromised with deep respect to Tun Mahathir, but Najib should no longer compromise to those who just wanted to undermine or sabotage his political power and absolute authority as the incumbent prime minister.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PRIME MINISTER AND THAT IS NAJIB RAZAK, ELECTED THROUGH THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS WITH THE BLESSINGS FROM GOD ALMIGHTY.WE ARE ALL TARGETED AUDIENCE AND OBSERVERS AS PART OF NAJIB'S ADMINISTRATION.WE SHOULD CRITICISE CONSTRUCTIVELY WITHOUT NEGATIVE VIBES OR UNCONTROLLED EMOTIONS.

Hidup 1Malaysia and be part of Najib's vision and inspiration to build an equitable Malaysia for all of us as 1Malaysia and 1Nation.1Malaysia is a powerful communication tool between the PM and the people without any protocol or obstructions.

We should treat and value the 1Malaysia concept without being suspicious as a responsible Malaysian, not as an individual Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban or Kadazan by our national identity. Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban or Kadazan by our national identity.

Non Malay said...

Honestly, all these don't bother me. I would prefer to see a freer media, transparency, a civilized police force, a non-partisan Judiciary, EC and MACC.
What's the point in being a santa claus if Democracy and good governance is dead, and the leaders protected from prosecution and remain above the law and Utusan Malaysia goes on to insult the non-Malays?
Najib falls flat if I bring up the Perak issue.

Niat untuk memberikan 'gula-gula' kepada golongan yang tidak henti-henti mengeluh-rintih dan melabel-label diri sendiri dengan berbagai label reka-rekaan seperti kalangan yang 'terpinggir', 'tertindas', dan 'dinafikan hak' untuk mendapat perhatian dan diberikan sumbangan itu dan ini, pada satu sudut nampak kerasionalan dan justifikasinya.

Namun, kalau dibuat berlebih-lebihan, ia nampak lain, pelik dan ada yang tidak kena. Dalam keghairahan menabur gula-gula, ramai yang mungkin terlupa kisah tentang anjing tersepit. Buat baik harus tidak menjadi 'terbalik kot' yakni jangan sampai golongan majoriti pula berasa terpinggir dan mengalami apa yang diistilahkan sebagai "reverse discrimination"!!!

Bercakap pasal Amanah Saham ni, saya punya ASB pun jauh lagi nak sampai takat "tak buleh masuk" dah. Dah berpuluh tahun ASB ni ada, belum pun lagi dapat digunakan sepenuhnya oleh Para Bumiputera. Sengaja tak nak guna atau pun tak ada daya nak guna?

Lain pula cerita dengan Tabung Amanah Saham yang lain-lain tu yang terbuka pada semua. Lancar saja, sejam dua lepas tu habis licin. Lancar lagi yang lain juga. Begitu juga, "licin monne" kata orang Kelantan.

Ada tak kajian siapa orang-orang yang "GAGAH" ni yang menyapu bersih setiap Tabung Amanah yang dilancarkan? Berapa pula nilai-nilai Tabung Amanah yang disapu bersih ini jika dibandingkan dengan nilai yang di "ambil guna" oleh Bumiputera dalam ASB tu?

Saya bertanyakan soalan ini cuma sekadar ingin tahu sebab saya dengar banyak suara-suara bahawa Yang Berkenaan Itu tidak berlaku adil, sama rata terhadap mereka. Asyik-asyik Bumiputera saja yang jadi anak emas. Tapi bila anak emas ini nak bersuara sikit, terus di bagi "tempeleng rasis" oleh bapaknya sendiri. Macamana tu Dato?

JY said...

In my humble opinion, it is way too early to judge Najib based on his first 100 days in office.

Furthermore, the quality of a leader should not be based by how much goodies he is providing as all these are possible by raising more taxes or reallocating tax money from one area to another. Otherwise, it will only result in higher government deficit which will burden the future generations.

I'm more interested to see how Najib can bring about more changes to the political structure of the country - more press freedom, more transparency, independent judiciary, independent police force, less corruption within BN and better ties between Malaysians of all races and religions. Malaysians deserve a government with more integrity.

Bancian isu PPSMI:

Dari laman chedet.com

86% tidak setuju (60,703 undi)
14% setuju (2,465)

Dari laman Utusan Malaysia:

57% setuju (3,540 undi)
39.9% tidak setuju (2,465 undi)
2,8% tak kisah

comment:

Yang mana satu betul?

Pada pendapat saya dua-dua tak tepat.

Adalah lebeh baik jika diadakan national referendum untuk meyakinkan rakyat sama ada PPSMI patut dimansuhkan atau dikekalkan.

Too many reforms in short time would be too dangerous to the people and the country. Hopefully Premier Najib do not get too excited about the reforms. Focus on result.

Do not too much excited in introducing 100 reforms but only 1 reform ended to be good for the people and the country.

Hopefully our Premier Najib is not out for reforms spree for God Sake.
Do not end up making earlier policies hay wires and remember every reform need time to materialize...if so.

We need a real policy with real substance. Do not indirectly let the Rakyat becoming guinie pig of the said reform.

More hope so it is about time our UMNO leaders to think and act smart.

pakbelalang said...

I would like to repeat statement made by Tun M and would like to comment further :-

Asked about the relevance of the New Economic Policy, Dr Mahathir said it should be retained but the Malays should use it well.

“We found many abuses. A lot of approved permits were given, but they were sold. A lot of contracts were given, but they were sold. A lot of licences were issued, they were sold.

“It is the fault of the Malays. We have to correct it. It is not the fault of NEP, it is the fault of the Malays.”

comment:

Why this thing happens? Basically, the Malays do not appreciate how valuable those "gifts" given by the govt. Opportunity given but they abuse it. They are not willing to sacrifice the hard way how to go about in managing their business affairs. They want instant comfort and enjoy their life without having to undergo the hassle of learning and experiencing the actual trade. They are unable to utilise all the basic managment tools how to make their business successful. The Malays are not stupid but their simple attitude and lack of discipline make them fail in business.
They always blame the govt. as a scapegoat for their failures.In fact the govt. have provided all the tools available at their disposal ie. capital, training etc by setting up relevent agencies to help them and yet they prefer the shortcut way to success by selling the "gifts" given to them for immediate gain.

As'kum Dato'

1. Secara ikhlas saya nyatakan bahawa sejak PM DS Najib mengambilalih tampok kepimpinan negara saya mula mempunyai keyakinan terhapanya dan Kerajaan BN. Nampaknya pada mulanya, walupun agak awal, I think he is moving on the right track to lead a stable goverment, SEHINGGALAH TPM merangkap Menteri Pelajaran mengumumkan pemansuhan PPSMI.

2. Bagi saya the first 100 days PM telah dirosakkan oleh pengumuman tersebut. Till now I still cannot accept their unrealistic explaination to abandon the PPSMI. The reasons given are unacceptable. To me the Ministers of Education during that six years period of its inception should be blamed for the failure of the policy. They should have monitored the effectiveness of the policy during such period and not just make their analysis only after the 6th years and then make their unreasonable conclusion to cancel the policy.

3. In fact I was told during the period the teachers have abandoned the usage of computer and LCD as their teaching tools. Most of the Science and Math teachers never make any efford to improve their teaching technic to make the subjects be more effective and interesting. And make matter worst no serious efford were made by the Ministry to review the approach. Should these corrections and improvements being made from time to time since its inception I am sure the outcome will be different. Sekarang ini cuma diharap " yang dikejar tidak dapat dan yang dikendung keciciran".

4. Oleh itu sekarang saya terpaksa memerlukan 100 hari lagi untuk menilai semula prestasi PM DS Najib bagi memulih semula keyakinan saya terhadap kepimpinan Kerajaan barunya dan BN.

Salam Dato',

Saya berasa hairan kenapa apabila ada seorang Melayu memberikan pendapat yang berbunyi:"they rather sell their souls to other races...." (yang ditujukan kepada seorang Melayu yang lain), maka ia dianggap mengandungi elemen rasis atau berada dalam sindrom penafian?

Sebaliknya apabila juak-juak pembangkang bukan-Melayu melontarkan pandangan sinikal kepada sesama mereka (puak bukan-Melayu yang lainnya) agar jangan jadi pak turut, balaci, pengkhianat, jangan menjual maruah mereka semata-mata kerana mengejar matlamat politik dan bla, bla, tidak pula dianggap bersifat rasis atau berada dalam sindrom penafian dalam konteks realiti politik nasional yang majmuk sifatnya.

Nampaknya, golongan majoriti sentiasa dipantau dan dipersenda tutur kata mereka waima yang ditujukan kepada sesama Melayu meskipun atas dasar untuk kebaikan bersama. Sebaliknya kalau perkara yang sama berlaku kepada bukan-Melayu, kenapa konco-konco bukan-Melayu berasa sensitif dan mudah tersentuh hati?

Contoh yang lain ialah apabila orang Melayu menyatakan hasrat untuk berunding bagi memperkukuhkan kefahaman antara satu sama lain, bukannya Parti Islam yang terlebih dahulu memberikan respons sebaliknya parti yang didominasi oleh bukan-Melayu yang memberikan respons berlebih-lebihan meskipun tidak diundang!!

Apa maknanya dan apa impak jangka pendek dan sederhananya kalau suasa sebegini berterusan?

Orang Melayu harus terima perubahan yang berlaku masa kini tentang globalisasi dan liberalisasi. Kita mesti terima hakikat ini kerana negara kita adalah sebuah negara terbuka yang berdagang dengan semua negara didunia. Semua negara didunia telah terikat dengan sistem globalisasi dan liberalisasi.

Jadi kita tidak boleh tersisih dengan sistem ini.Jika negara kita bersendirian dan tidak menyesuaikan keadaan realiti sistem ekonomi dunia masa kini maka akhirnya kita akan ketinggalan dan tercicir dari arus untuk mencapai tahap ekonomi yang lebeh baik untuk negara kita.

Globalisasi dan liberalisasi ada "pro dan con nya" tapi semua negara di dunia telah memilih sistem ini sebagai yang terbaik untuk meningkatkan ekonomi negara masing-masing.

Jadi dalam hal ini Najib telah berpadangan jauh.Dia terpaksa membuat penyesuaian struktur ekonomi kita untuk mengekalkan kedudukan ekonomi kita supaya tidak terjejas dan bersaing dengan negara lain terutamanya negara Asean. Kita perlukan "foreign direct investment (FDI) untuk memajukan ekonomi kita. Untuk tujuan mendapatkan FDI kita perlu tawarkan insentif yang menarik berbanding dengan negara lain yang juga mempunyai strategi mereka untuk menarik FDI.

Saya rasa Najib terpaksa menggubal semula DEB untuk disesuaikan dengan gelombang globalisasi dan liberalisai yang telah melanda semua negara di dunia dan telah pun sampai ke pantai negara kita.

Jika ini tidak dilakukan oleh Najib saya rasa DEB akan punah terus dan tidak akan mencapai matlamat yang diharapkan.

Kita harap perlantikan 9 orang penasihat ekonomi dalam Economic Council akan dapat membuat strategi yang berkesan dan meneliti secara terperinci kearah mana ekonomi kita akan berkembang dan ditingkatkan lagi untuk kesejahteran rakyat kita terutama sekali dikalangan bumiputra. Mungkin ada dasar baru yang lebeh berkesan lagi untuk menggantikan DEB.

Kita harus mempunyai fikiran terbuka dan tidak harus MELATAH !!

Mentaliti pemimpin UMNO era baru ni selalu ingat yang naikkan diorang adalah taukeh taukeh tu sebab 4 tahun lebih selepas dari tarikh kemenangan, mereka bergaul dengan taukeh taukeh, umum sana , umum sini.sibuk!!!, menteri lah katakan, tak ada masa nak cakap sambil bersela, atau pakai kain pelikat aje ke pasal ketuanan bangsa, melawat orang tua tu, anak yatinm ni, derma sana derma sini. Akan tetapi bila bila nak pilihan raya diorang datang kat kampong, bagi kain pelikat dan buat longkang dan sebagainya.adalah dalam 3 minggu.

Tak hairan dengan dasar NAJIB dan MAHYUDDIN, sebab di ULU LANGAT ni dulu, begitu lah kaedahnya, nyampaikan Masjid Kajang tu pun nak di jual di Mad Taib. Begitu juga dengan Semenyih. Yang banyak diluluskan kepada individu bukan melayu untuk dapat tanah (selaian ajk bahagian), kalau orang kampung nak mohon tanah kerajaan nak buat pembesaran kampong, disekat sekat, sahingga ke pilihanraya. Bila tengok siapa yang dapat, tak payah nak jawab. Nama orang kampung yang disusun dulu dah hilang tah kemana. Itu kerja ADUN Semenyih dulu tu. Nasib baik PR dapat Selangor. Stop Sekejap. Tapi menengok pada scenario sekarang, pun akan jadi lebih kurang je kot?

Jadi bila No. 1 dan 2 dan Gerombolan nya berfikiran dan bertindak begitu, tak berapa nak teperanjat. Kerana, ia nya begitu dan seterusnya begitu. Tak payahlah kita nak menangis mengenang nasib ugama dan bangsa.

Despite liberalisation, Bumi interests will be supported: Najib
By TEH ENG HOCK


KUALA LUMPUR: Bumiputra interests will be well supported despite the recent liberalisation moves, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak on Sunday.

He said that while the approach had changed, the aim of looking after Bumiputra interests remained.



“The success of the government and my administration depends on the KPI achievement.

He added that with the key result areas clearly spelt out, the government would be more focused as the yardstick had already been identified.

“We have to set a high target, but not too high until it is unrealistic. If the target was too low, then the people would think the KPIs were meaningless,” he said.

Najib said it would be more appropriate to measure the success of his administration after a full term and not in 100 days.

He also said that the moves announced by him were not populist but well-studied move for long term progress of Malaysians.

Najib made an intelligent statement. There is substance in his statement and sounds simple and logical. Very scientific approach in his presentation. He has done his homework quite well for the last 100 days. He has got a very clear mind. I think he will shine as a Prime Minister. Tak malu lah !! Thumps up for him. Hopefully, he will not make big "political blunders" along the way.

After his 100 days he is nothing more than a fire brigade man putting out bush fires here-n-there.

After his 100 days he is still clueless on what needs to be done so that the average person on the street can feel the difference.

Or isn't the whole crux of the matter is that even before his 100 days got started, we've already know that we can't make a silk purse out of...?

YBhg Dato'

Assalamualaikum.Tahniah saya ucapkan kpd YAB PM kerana telah berjaya melepasi 100 hari sebagai PM. Dalam jangka masa tersebut terdapat pelbagai pendapat yang dicurahkan rakyat , setengah positif dan setengah negatif. Alhamdulillah dalam jangka masa tersebut seperti YBhg Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi , YAB tidak melatah dan menjalankan tugas dengan tenang.Pendirian seperti ini akan membawa kestabilan yang amat diperlukan negara sekarang.

Saya berpendapat mengukur prestasi seseorang mengikut apa yang beliau bolih beri kepada rakyat secara umum atau golongan-golongan tertentu tanpa terlebih dahulu membuat kajian "socio -ekonomi" dan bersandarkan kepada kemampuan adalah sesuatu yang tidak tepat.Sebagai contoh mengapakah pihak yang ber"privilege" mempunyai smart tag dan touch and go sahaja layak menerima diskaun 20% bagi penggunaan jalan bertol.Melalui kajian mungkin penurunan kadar 5% bagi semua pengguna jalan bertol lebih bermakna kepada konsep 1 Malaysia yang sedang dipromosikan sekarang.

Apa yang rakyat perlukan adalah sejauh mana Kerajaan telah berjaya memenohi kehendak rakyat bagi mengwujudkan sebuah negara yang sejahtera dan berkebajikan. Malanghya ada ahli kabinet yang tidak berhati-hati dalam membuat kenyataan seperti 'berjanji akan membina sebuah jambatan jika BN menang dalam pengundian'.Adalah tanggungjawab sesebuah Kerajaan menyediakan sesuatu kemudahan itu mengikut keperluan sebenar dan bukannya kerana undi.

Pada saya tiga bulan pertama adalah untuk mengwujudkan stratigi untuk membangun negara mengikut aspirasi rakyat. Marilah kita bersama-sama berganding bahu membantu PM menjadikan negara kita sebuah negara yang sejahtera dan berkebajikan.

Dear Datuk,
I hope all readers here remember these "gifts" is actually your money. These doesn't come out from Najib own pocket but from your coffer paying to the government via various taxes. Najib is doing effort to make him a popular PM to grab back the states that been lost to the oppositions. Will this make those "old sins" be forgiven? even murder? Bigger topics have been sidelines, how do we battle the bigger corruption cases.

100 hari DSN sebagai PM, jika ditinjau dari sudut konsep dan ciri pengurusan organisasi moden,bagi saya, merupakan satu period yang beliau wajar gunakan untuk menjelaskan secara komprehensif pada 100 hari tersebut mengenai dasar-dasar awam yang beliau ingin laksanakan sebagai PM baru dan bagaimana cara pentadbiran beliau menterjemahkan dasar-dasar awam tersebut untuk memastikan matlamat-matlamt yang beliau sasarkan di sebaliknya itu diyakini tercapai.

Betul, DSN ada menjelaskan mengenai dasar -dasar awam beliau bersama matlamat-matlamatnya. Tetapi bagaimana dengan cara pentadbiran beliau menterjemahkannya?

Assalamualaikum Dato',

The annoucement by PM Najib in my personal opinion is somehow lacklustre. It does gives reasons for some quaters to celebrate but I cannot see any reason to celebrate.

At least he did announce some sweeping measures to upgrade the livelihood of the people regardless of their race. Hindraf shouldn't complain much now and so do the Chinese. However, a lot of damage has been done to the overall well-being of the Malays.

I do not want to comment much on the 'goodies' announced recently because I am more concerned on the fate that Malays in the country would face in the future. In order to gain support from other races, the Malays are being compromised. There were those who posted comments on your article by saying that Malays should be willing to compete rather than seeking hands-out from the Government. I am not of afraid of competition and I am willing to compete in business terms to say the least. The reality is somehow on the contrary. I am involved in the manufacturing and fabrication of electrical components. My list of clients includes Panasonic, Daikin, Dunbush and Hitachi. Sadly, I cannnot supply direct to these companies and have to go through their main vendor and they are mostly run by Chinese. Most of the senior post in the multi-national companies are controlled by Chinese and when a bumi company like me wanted to get a piece of the business, I have to basically beg to be given a chance. I have gone through great pains to develop my company and I wonder what would happen to me if not for the government policy like the DEB.

We open up and librealise the economy but will the other races like Chinese open up to a deserved bumi entreprenuer and give them the chance accordingly? I have worked through toil and sweat for the recognition that I badly yearned. I have to admit that there are Malay businessmen and entrepreneurs that have not performed to expectation and keep asking the Governement for assistance. The governement in turn have gave them numerous opportunities but they still fail in their quest. However this does not mean that all Malay businessmen and entrepreneurs are the same. When we talked about level playing field then in must be in practical and not theoritical.

I have no ill-feelings and do not begrudged the success of the Chinese and I try to emulate them. In reality, the Malays must work extra hard to achieve what the Chinese have gained all this while. In my humble opinion, the policy of DEB/NEP or Dasar Pembangunan Negara or whatever they want to call must remain in force not because we Malays are afraid of competition or lazy but because other races like Chinese are so well ahead of us in the field of business and if the Government do not impose such a pre-condition, there is no way that the Chinese business people will open their doors to deserved Malay businessmen and entrepreneurs.

Salam.

Selangor MB To Seek Mufti's Approval To Use Baitul Mal Funds For Development




SHAH ALAM, July 13 (Bernama)-- Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim wants to meet state Mufti Datuk Seri Mohd Tamyes Abdul Wahid to discuss the possibility of using Baitul Mal funds for development and administration purposes.


comment:

Khalid jangan nak cuba memandai-mandai nak gunakan tabong Baitul Mal.

Baginda Sultan Selangor mesti campur tangan dalam hal ini supaya si Khalid, Menteri Besar yang mentah ini tidak menyelewengkan Tabong Baitul Mal.

Carilah hasil lain untuk pembangunan dan pentabiran negeri. Jangan nak cuba cari jalan ringkas untuk mendapatkan sumber kewangan dari Baitul Mal hinggakan nanti duit Baitul Mal akan digunakan untuk buat KANDANG BABI YANG TERMODEN DI SELANGOR.

Jangan cuba nak mempengaruhi Mufti Selangor dengan cadangan yang bercanggah dengan hukum.

MACC Report Lodged Over Sale Of Kampung Buah Pala Land




PENANG, July 13 (Bernama) -- The Penang government on Monday lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) urging the commission to investigate the sale of a piece of land in Kampung Buah Pala, Bukit Gelugor, here.

The report was lodged by the two deputy chief ministers Mansor Othman and P. Ramasamy at the Penang MACC office at about 3pm.

Ramasamy told reporters that the state government wanted the MACC to investigate why the land, which was priced at RM6.42 million, was sold at 50 per cent discount to Koperasi Pegawai Kerajaan Pulau Pinang.


comment:

The State Government is trying to divert attention simply because the Chief Minister is jammed for not having the solution to resolve the issue. Again he is trying to find a scapegoat.

el-Barokhas said...

Looks like gift giving had caught the imagination of our political leaders.

It started with the former(?) Perak Government upgrading thousands of Temporary Occupation Licences to Permanent Titles.

Selangor's new government followed suit with free water supply for the first 200 (or so) cu. meters per household per month.

Not to be outdone, the new Penang government expressed it's readiness to award land in Kampung Jalan Buah Pala to its settlers, if it could afford it or if somebody else could be tricked into paying for it.

And of course the Federal Government, having a much bigger purse-string, has got to announce a gift of eleven items, presumably to make up for as many states that had not been covered. Or, is it meant to coincide with somebody's lucky number, like number thirteen to the former PM?

And let's hope this phenomenon would never end, unlike durian runtuh, because durian runtuh only occurs seasonally.

In local context, political parties are divided into two factions. They are coalition A and B. There is no coalition C. At least for now.

At 12th GE, it was coalition A (PR) who made all sort of promises (in actual fact an empty one). This was part of PR quick fix strategy to gain supports.

More than that, PR even have a long lists of various "gifts" and "goodies" which would be deliver via air drops supposedly they struck big! It was an open secret at that time around.

Therefore, beyond a shadow of a doubt, it is actually PR who started this unprecedented trend of handing out all kind of unrealistic promises in a big way and nowadays we see it becoming part and parcel of being a 'celebrity'.

The good thing is, it helps PR to secure some seats. The bad part is, the most PR could do to fulfil its promises is by delivering those "gifts" in ones and twos.

It is non others a politician gimmick for the sake of his survival in staying into power.... have we seen the outcome of the previous promises made by the government? Have him actually ensure that all of that being realized before actually giving us another promises and hope?

Get these long outstanding issues straightened first

Dear DAKJ,
One of the most important 100 day gifts that Najib forgot to deliver is correcting what politically he has done wrong in Perak. What had happened in Perak is a big blemish on his 100 day job record.Perhaps he can consider doing it when his 200 days in office is up for evaluation.

Ramai sangat beli kereta baru sekarang, tertarik dengan pakej zero downpayment, 9 years financing. Maka ramailah yang "mampu" berhutang rm40k, rm50k, macam-macam. Tengoklah jenis kereta di sekitar kawasan rumah atau flat kos rendah. Hutang banyak-banyak untuk beli aset yang susut nilai, bagi saya tak bijak. Ada lagi kos lain, seperti minyak, tol, kos selenggara, aksesori. Saya cadangkan kalau nak beli kereta, hadkan pembayaran balik tidak melebihi 5 tahun. Pilihlah kereta setakat yang mampu, kereta cc rendah, pakailah kereta terpakai, tak salah. Utamakan monthly savings, tak panik masa gawat. Sekadar cadangan dari tuan punya kereta yang akan masuk usia 10 tahun.

Dr M gets a sharp reproof
2009/07/14

KUALA LUMPUR: Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, former inspector-general of police Tun Hanif Omar and former attorney-general Tan Sri Abu Talib Othman were described as “crooks” who had forgotten that they used to serve
and defend the administration.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said the three men were strong government supporters when they were in the government.

comment:

Orang yang berkata begitu mungkin dialah "the mother of all "crooks". Sedarlah diri. Bersopanlah sikit kalau nak kritik pun.Ada banyak perkataan yang sopan boleh digunakan.

Saya setuju dengan pandangan berasiam yang mempersoalkan
"gift" 100 hari DSN mengenai tawaran penjualan rumah DBKL yang menyentuh soal pengurusan, penyelenggaraan dan ketirisan.

Apa yang saya tahu,mengenai apa yang dipersoalkan oleh berasiam itu dianggap oleh DSN sebagai aspek teknikal yang akan dibincangkan, perhalusi dan diselesaikannya dengan pihak DBKL dll yang berkaitan dalam tempoh sebulan. Tetapi, bagaimana jika aspek teknikal tersebut gagal diselesaikan dalam masa sebulan, sedangkan "gift" tersebut sudah dijanjikan?

Saya sebenarnya tidak setuju dengan cadangan penjualan lebih 40,000 unit rumah DBKL atas alasan ia bercanggah dengan dasar menyediakan rumah sewa oleh kerajaan tempatan dikawasan bandar dari segi mengawal harga sewaan di paras yang munasabah seperti seadanya sekarang.

Ini bagaimana pun, berdasarkan andaian akan berlaku gejala meraih keuntungan cepat, dalam erti kata rumah yang dibeli akan dijual semula dengan harga sekali ganda.

Antara ciri utama senibina bentuk pasca moden atau postmodernism ialah penerapan dan paparan elemen-elemen klasikal penting luaran bangunan seperti tiang, bumbung, tangga, tingkap dan pintu di tahap berlebih-lebih atau menjolok mata seperti membesarkan saiz tiang daripada sepatutnya, tetapi rekaan dalaman bangunan jenis moden.

Di mana ia dikaitkan dengan pemikiran golongan arkitek zaman moden ini yang menekankan mengenai pentingnya dikembalikan artifek elemen-elemen penting seni bina silam tersebut yang dikatakan kaya dengan ciri- ciri huminiti itu.

Soalan yang ingin ditanya Dato', apakah nama yang sesuai diberikan kepada pemikiran DSN dan lain-lain pemimpin Melayu kita yang jika dicontohi kepada pengumuman "100-Day Gift" DSN itu dilihat membesar-besarkan elemen-elemen tidak penting dari sudut seni bina bangunan?

Terfikirkah kita apa akan terjadi kepada negara kita kalau ditakdirkan Pakatan Rakyat dapat memerentah negara kita.

Kita akan hadapi sama ada negara kita mungkin akan jadi "Taman Syurga Firdaus" atau "Taman Neraka Jahanam".

Kalau ramai pemimpin Pakatan yang menyerupai "malaikat" maka "Taman Syurga Firdauslah" negara kita jadinya.

Tapi kalau ramai yang menyerupai " iblis dan setan" maka ke "Taman Neraka Jahanamlah" negara kita jadinya.

Takut-takut sebelum memerentah semua pemimpin Pakatan jadi "malaikat" dan bila dapat memerentah semuanya bertukar jadi "iblis dan syaitan".

Sekarang ini sekurang-kurangnya pemerentahan BN kita dah dapat mengenal pasti pemimpin yang mana perangai macam " malaikat" dan yang mana macam "syaitan".

Tidak mungkin semua akan mendapat "hadiah" dari mana-mana pemimpin. Hadiah adalah sesuatu yang ekslusif dan diberikan kepada orang tertentu dalam keadaan tertentu saja. Kalau setiap seorang dari kita mendapat benda atau barang yang sama makanya itu bukanlah hadiah namanya, kan, kan?

Contohnya biasiswa: bukan semuanya akan dapat. Kalau semuanya dapat makanya ia tidak dipanggil biasiswa agaknya!!!

Dalam konteks biasiswa kenapa semua kita tidak membantah apabila ianya tidak dihulurkan kepada setiap pelajar? Apakah pelajar yang sederhana pencapaianya tetapi tidak berada tidak perlukan bantuan kewangan?

Oleh itu, kalaulah isu diskaun tol 20% yang menimbulkan perasaan kurang bersetuju kerana ianya dilihat menguntungkan sesetengah pihak saja, maka dalam konteks yang sama kenapa pula kita bersetuju benar yang hanya segelintir pelajar saja berhak mendapat biasiswa?

Begitu juga kalau benarlah kesamarataan dan keadilan menjadi intipati perjuangan pembangkang, kenapa pulak 'hadiah' dari kerajaan negeri PR tidak diseragamkan? Kenapa di Selangor ada air percuma tetapi di negeri lain tidak ada?

Justeru, dalam soal hadiah, juak-juak pembangkang jangan jadi hipokrit. Sepatutnya yang dapat itu baguslah tetapi yang tidak dapat tu janganlah berkecil hati. Kalau tidak begitu nanti akan timbul pula isu lain misalanya kenapa sekolah jenis ini tidak sama tarafnya dengan sekolah jenis ini, itu dsbnya. Huh, letih hendak menjawabnya!

saya adalah salah seorang diantara beribu yang tinggal di flat PPR KL. Memang kami merasa seronok sangat dgn pengumuman tersebut apatah lagi kami tidak mempunyai rumah utk membesarkan anak2. walaubagaimanapun saya berharap pelaksanaan penjualan kepada penyewa sekarang di buat dengan telus tanpa pilih kasih. saya juga berharap SPRM akan memantau cara agihan yg dibuat oleh DBKL dan Kemterian Perumahan Kerajaan tempatan. Sebelum rumah dijual, sebuah jawatankuasa hendaklah memeriksa rumah2 yang hendak dijual kerana sebahagian besar rumah yang kami duduki kebanyakannya telah reput, terkopak, berlubang sana sini.Perbaikilah dahulu rumah2 yersebut jika tidak diskaun hendaklah diberi kp bakal pembeli. Kami juga berharap DBKL akan terus menjalankan servis spt sedia ada supaya lif lif berfungsi dengan baik. Jangan jual kalau prasarana nya tidak diperbaiki sepenuhnya. nanti rakyat akan memberontak dan PRU ke 13 kelak mereka akan berpaling sekali lagi kepada pembangkang.Kerajaan juga hendaklah menyediakan tabung pinjaman perumahan kepada gulongan yang tidak mempunyai pendapatan tetap dan gulungan asnaf yang perlukan pembelaan. oleh itu saya harap PM akan melihat perkara ini dg serius, jangan sekadar membuat penguman sahaja. Sapa pun boleh umum itu dan ini, ttp kaedah/makanisma yang boleh merealisasikan pengumuman itu lah yg penting supaya rakyat benar mendapat pembelaan dan faedah secara langsung dari dasar2 kerajaan yg hendak dilaksanakan.
