S’gor opposition questions car accessories cost

SHAH ALAM, 12 March 2009: An opposition Selangor state assemblyperson today questioned the need for an LCD screen and tinted glass for the official cars of state executive councillors (excos) that were paid for with state funds.

Yap Ee Wah (BN-Sungai Pelek) said the cost of the accessories for the 15 Toyota Camry 2.4 litre cars should not be borne by the state government.

This was because the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, in his speech to declare open the state assembly had called on the state government to be prudent in spending, said Yap when debating the motion of thanks on the Sultan’s speech.

He said the cost of the tinted glass for a car was RM2,000 while the LCD screens cost another RM2,000 each.

The costs should have been borne by the state excos, he said.

Yap also said there were relatives of deceased elderly persons under the state government’s Mesra Usia Emas scheme who only received RM2,500 while the government had promised RM3,500.

The scheme was launched by the state government last year to help relatives of deceased elderly persons pay for funeral expenses.

Yap also said that demonstrations by various quarters recently gave a poor picture of the country to outsiders, including investors.

 “Outsiders view us as being a disorderly state,” he said. — Bernama

    This is kettle calling the pot black. Jokers in the Selangor state assembly.

    It has been said that the PR has no experience in governing. Well, the same can be said of the BN having no experience in opposing.

    Trying to equate the cost of tinted windows and LCD screens with the astronomical sums previously paid for maintenance?

    Does he really think we are that stupid?

    While it is true that the former BN government is very much worse than the current PR government, the PR government should not start going down the path of poor government.
