Elak fitnah pembangkang- PM | N9 Kini - Portal Berita Negeri <b>...</b>

Posted: 24 Feb 2012 08:28 PM PST

Rakyat diingatkan agar tidak mudah terpedaya dan digula-gulakan oleh pembangkang termasuk janji bagi menurunkan harga minyak sekiranya berjaya memenangi pilihan raya umum akan datang.

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata, sedangkan hakikatnya harga minyak global yang tidak menurun menyukarkan pengurangan harga minyak negara, kecuali dengan menambah pemberian subsidi minyak.

"Memang harga minyak boleh diturunkan dengan cara menambah subsidi. Potong daripada yang lain, kurangkan harga minyak, tetapi itu bukanlah pengurusan yang cekap dan baik.

"Pakar ekonomi memahami, kalau kita mencurahkan peruntukan kerajaan begitu banyak untuk subsidi tetapi tidak menjana kekayaan dan pertumbuhan ekonomi maka negara akan menjurus kepada ekonomi yang semakin menurun.

"Mungkin satu hari nanti, kita akan mengalami nasib seperti Sepanyol, Ireland, Portugal dan Itali yang dulu dipandang tinggi, tetapi kini ekonomi negara kita lebih baik daripada mereka," katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika berucap merasmikan perumahan Taman Seri Manggis serta majlis pecah tanah pembinaan surau dan balai raya di Machap Umboo di sini hari ini yang turut dihadiri oleh Ketua Menteri Melaka, Datuk Seri Mohd. Ali Rustam.

Perumahan yang dibina di atas tanah seluas 3.2 hektar itu terdiri daripada 244 unit rumah teres setingkat kos sederhana yang dijual pada harga RM88,800 seunit dan 50 buah rumah kos rendah yang dijual dengan harga RM42,000 seunit.

Najib turut mengumumkan peruntukan sebanyak RM120,000 bagi pembinaan surau dan RM120,000 untuk balai raya oleh kerajaan negeri.

Dalam pada itu, Najib menggalakkan lebih banyak projek perumahan yang dibuat secara perkongsian pintar antara syarikat swasta dan kerajaan tanpa terlalu menumpukan kepada perumahan bagi golongan mewah sahaja.

"Dengan itu, kita dapat memastikan apabila kita memacu pembangunan, kita mahu pembangunan itu seimbang. Kita mahu ramai yang mendapat faedah meskipun projek itu dilaksanakan oleh sektor swasta, kita tidak mahu sektor swasta itu menumpu kepada golongan yang mewah sahaja.

"Kita beri perhatian secara seimbang bagi kepentingan ramai rakyat, inilah yang saya maksudkan kerajaan yang ada hari ini adalah kerajaan yang mendahulukan rakyat," katanya.

&#39;I don&#39;t want to die useless&#39; « ALIRAN

Posted: 06 Mar 2012 02:22 AM PST

National laureate A Samad Said believes that if Malaysians choose to keep their mouths shut, doing nothing; then "don't blame the government. Blame yourself". Aneesa Alphonsus of FMT has the story.

A Samad Said

Walk into the National Museum and head into the "Malaysia Now" Exhibit at Gallery D and you will see him among the nation's literary greats. National laureate A Samad Said, a diminutive man with a larger than life persona and much revered by Malaysian.

Conversation with him is a surreal experience, more so when he ordered a hot chocolate with an impish smile, dashing the notion that all serious literary people drink coffee – black.

At 76, Pak Samad has the kind of zen persona that makes even his most vitriolic statements sound like poetry. It does then seem odd that he should co-chair the Bersih coalition.

So how did this quiet, unassuming man get involved in one of the biggest demonstrations the country has seen?

Those who saw the photos or who were at the walk in July 2011 are likely to remember for a long time to come the sight of him walking barefooted to the palace to deliver a memorandum after having lost his slippers in the foray of the demonstration.

After so many years of quiet, why now, at this age, did he decide to lend his voice and be a part of such a rally?

A native of Belimbing Dalam, a village near Durian Tunggal in Malacca, Pak Samad received his early education during the Second World War years at Sekolah Melayu Kota Raja (Kota Raja Malay School) in Singapore.

When the war ended, he continued his education at Singapore's Victoria School and went on to work as a clerk in a hospital.

Pak Samad confessed that he had always wanted to be a writer. He began an unsuspecting career in 1954 by writing short stories, poems, features, dramas, novels and even diaries.

Later, he would get a job with Utusan Zaman in Singapore and other well-known Malay language magazines like Mastika and Remaja. He added that the reason why he wanted to write so much was so that he could chronicle everything he saw as sincerely as possible as seen through his eyes.

His calling as a writer was cemented in 1957 and 1968 when a novel he had written won the consolation prize in a writing competition organised by Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka.

The novel was Salina. Salina was the story of a woman who, due to poverty, finds work in Singapore's red light district of the 1950s.

Salina the novel is today touted as a literary masterpiece, moving in its portrayal of humanity.

Much ugliness in Malaysia

When asked if Pak Samad personally knew a woman like Salina, he proffered that he knew and met many women like her. Salina, he said, was a composition of characters he had met.

"When I was in Singapore in the 1950s, I lived in places like Lorong Lalat before moving to Rangoon road. Both these areas and the surrounding ones like Johor Road and Deskar Road were red light districts.

"The rooms and houses were cheap, so that's where I stayed," he smiled.

"It was during this time that I got to know a few waitresses and sex workers. I would say that the character of Salina was a combination of these women I met."

Salina took Pak Samad to greater heights and his writing career flourished.

As the years began to roll out, he realised that settling to recording and writing what he saw wasn't enough.

Leaning forward in his chair, he said: "Here there were so many ugly things happening in front of me. I would see unfairness, intimidation, fraud and this moved me a step ahead from what I was used to.

"I saw that after 54 years of independence, we have come to point zero again. We have become racial when we want to win votes.

"I think there's something wrong somewhere if, after five decades, a nation cannot stand on solid ground; I think it has failed.

"This is why I decide to walk, as you asked me. I wanted to do more than just write about what I saw."

'We need sincere leaders'

Pak Samad has his own idea of what it would take for the country to thrive as she should.

It's a big idea, but he put it simply when he said, "We need sincere leaders with a vision and with a real project in mind to galvanise a nation. We don't have that right now."

He added that having said that, it would only be fair to exclude Tunku Abdul Rahman from the equation.

"Tunku Abdul Rahman was the beginner… who started things.

"Tun Abdul Razak may have had a vision but this didn't quite turn out because he was too pro-Malay.

"After that, everything became rojak … because things became messy; you don't come to the ideal to have a nation which is now symbolised by a motto – 1Malaysia. That's what it is – 1Malaysia is just a motto, an advertisement."

At this point, Pak Samad opened his eyes wide in mock annoyance, then quickly broke into a smile and, laughing heartily, he asked, "Do I look angry? I'm not angry. I just act angrily.

"My wife always reminds me to be careful about what I say and write. But I know that whatever I write, there will be repercussions. I have always said that poems are weapons. I even have an anthology out called Puisi Itu Senjata but people don't read it."

But Pak Samad's sense of reassurance is settled in the fact that Malaysians are beginning to voice their thoughts.

He said he believed that the younger generation is making an impact in some of the changes being witnessed. The "old people" he has discounted because they already know who to vote for.

'Don't blame the government'

Pak Samad is hopeful that this will eventually bring about the balance which is needed for democracy.

He said that this equilibrium will end what the government is doing by (allegedly) giving abrupt citizenship to immigrants just to make sure they vote for Barisan Nasional.

Why should someone who has just been here for three or five years be (allegedly) given the power to determine the country's rule is a question, he posed.

He said there were millions of other genuine rakyat who are not been given that chance.

"I will come back to the same thing again and again. I'm afraid that Malaysians won't do their bit.

"If you keep your mouth shut doing nothing, don't blame the government. Blame yourself," he stated.

Perhaps it is this dogged determination which he says is part of his personality that has kept him doing what he has all this time.

To those who are not familiar with Pak Samad, fiery is not how one would describe him. But make no mistake that he is.

He doesn't suffer fools gladly but is still very compassionate about the rights of Malaysians, and there isn't an iota of doubt that this is a man who is in love with his country.

He laughs at his repetitive self and says he knows he sometimes sounds like a broken record.

'I am still same person'

But he doesn't mind, of course, because someone has to say something. And at the risk of getting into trouble for it, he is completely at peace with it being him.

Acknowledging that he is in the twilight of his life, Pak Samad expressed a desire to see Malaysia become an example of a new country – harmonious, rich, fair, respectful and dominant in a way that her voice will be internationally respected.

"Some people have told me that I have changed as a person. But I know I am still the same. I do what I do, say what I say and write what I write because I don't want to die uselessly.

"I want to be able to die knowing that I did something for my country, even if it's a small part, to bring about the change I hope to see in my lifetime."

Mohamad Taufek Abd Ghani: 235 Projek Perumahan Sakit <b>...</b>

Posted: 28 Feb 2012 08:06 PM PST

Laporan dari laman web Kementerian Perumahan dan Kerajaan tempatan menyatakan terdapat 235 Projek Perumahan Sakit sehingga 31 Disember 2011. Satu daripada projek tersebut ialah Taman Desa Indah terletak di Lubok China, dalam DUN Kota dan kawasan Parlimen Rembau. Projek ini bermula sejak tahun 2003. Pembeli 95 unit rumah teres kos sederhana rendah dan 60 unit rumah teres kos rendah di Desa Indah ini terdiri dari mereka yang berpendapatan rendah, ada yang kerja kilang ada yang kerja kampung.

Ada yang sudah bayar deposit beribu ringgit, ada yang dah keluarkan simpanan KWSP. Kini setelah 9 tahun, rumah hanya siap 10 peratus. Dalam pada masa yang sama, walaupun rumah hanya 10 peratus siap, mereka perlu membayar cukai tanah dan sewa rumah sementara menunggu rumah tersebut siap entah bila.

Alangkah baik kalau mereka yang terlibat dengan projek perumahan terbengkalai ini dilayan seperti Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli.

KUALA LUMPUR, 25 FEB 2012 : Adakah penyelesaian di luar mahkamah berhubung hutang tokoh korporat Tan Sri Tajudin Ramli bernilai RM580 juta yang tidak perlu dibayarnya bererti semua rakyat Malaysia harus menanggung hutang itu?

24 Feb 2012
KUALA LUMPUR – Maybank mengumumkan pertumbuhan keuntungan selepas cukai dan kepentingan minoriti (PATAMI) sebanyak 20 peratus kepada RM2.58 bilion bagi tempoh enam bulan perniagaan berakhir 31 Disember 2011. Dalam tempoh yang sama, kumpulan perbankan tersebut turut mencatatkan pertumbuhan keuntungan sebelum cukai sebanyak 20.1 peratus kepada RM3.56 bilion sehubungan peralihan tahun kewangan berakhir Maybank dari 30 Jun kepada 31 Disember.

KUALA LUMPUR: Beberapa bank tempatan didakwa bersikap kejam terhadap pelanggan apabila melelong rumah milik peminjam tanpa sebarang notis selepas mangsa gagal melunaskan bayaran bulanan seperti dikehendaki.

PUTRAJAYA 25 Jan. 2012 - Tidak mampu lagi menahan sabar dengan sikap lepas tangan pemaju dan 'tekanan' pihak bank, kira-kira 100 pembeli unit kediaman di lima projek pangsapuri di Pulau Indah, Klang hari ini membuat laporan kes projek rumah terbengkalai itu kepada Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) di sini.

Feb 5, 2012
Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd (SPNB), tidak lagi bertanggungjawab memulihkan projek-projek perumahan terbengkalai sejak 2010, kata pengarah urusannya, Datuk Kamarul Rashdan Salleh.
