Eyesore...Hannah with MPSJ councilors and urban services department staff looking at one of the dumping spots in USJ2

SUBANG JAYA: RESIDENTS who are in the habit of dumping their rubbish indiscriminately along the roads will find themselves RM1,000 poorer if they are caught in the act.

ADUN Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh said those caught in the act would have to face the music since all efforts by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council to deter such irresponsible behaviour had failed to stem the worsening problem of indiscriminate dumping.

"I urge residents to be more civic conscious and to dispose of their rubbish properly. Don't just throw it anywhere you like."

"If you see your neighbour dumping their rubbish improperly, advise them. If they still do it, call MPSJ for them to take action," she said during a press conference held in USJ2 to highlight the worsening problem.

Residents who have bulky waste to dispose of or for those who wish to lodge complaints can call the council's urban services department hotline at 03-8026 7431 (during office hours) or call MPSJ's main hotline at 03-5637 6545 (24 hours).

More illegal dumping

Indiscriminate dumping of rubbish at its worst in affluent neighbourhood of Subang Jaya

SUBANG JAYA: THE CONTINUOUS indiscriminate dumping of rubbish by residents of Subang Jaya and the nonchalant attitude of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council in addressing it has earned the wrath of ADUN Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh.

Despite it being the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, Hannah took to the areas most affected in USJ to look at the situation on the ground with MPSJ councilors Dr KM Loi and Rajiv Rishyakaran, together with officials from MPSJ's urban services department.

The situation along Jalan USJ11/3 was bad, with rubbish piled up along the roads, spaced out between every two trees along the stretch.

"It is crucial for MPSJ YDP Dato' Asmawi Kasbi to address this problem. This area is the closest to the council's location and yet it happens, right at their doorstep."

"He (Asmawi) should turun padang to see the problems for himself. Two 3ton lorries to pick up bulky waste and garden refuse is not enough to cater to the whole municipality," she said.

Hannah said MPSJ needs to mobilise more resources to address this issue and not just turn a blind eye.

"The pattern starts with garden waste bags being placed along the roadside by MPSJ contractors. Uncollected, these bags of grass or leaves attract residents to add on to the pile with their own rubbish."

"Rubbish is piling up everywhere and it appears to be at its worse in affluent areas like USJ4, USJ5 and USJ11," she said, adding that homeowners also needed to be more considerate and refrain from dumping their rubbish everywhere.

Hannah who stopped to ask a security guard at USJ11/3 was told by the guard on duty that domestic maids from the houses were the culprits, dumping rubbish along the road junctions and at the trees.

She said MPSJ had started a pilot project in USJ2 by placing bulky waste bins for residents to dispose of their rubbish at designated spots.

"This is to gauge the volume of rubbish and costings before we will consider extending it all over Subang Jaya as one of several measures to address this nagging problem," she added.

Urge BN And UMNO Leaders To Throw Your Lies And Hate At Me But Please Leave My School-going Children Alone! (en/cn)

Posted: 27 Jan 2012 07:22 PM PST

My family and I are upset at the statement made by Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in Sibu yesterday, dragging my daughter into his latest spin that the National Service (NS) training programme is now widely accepted and trusted by parents for the positive effect it has on their children. Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid claimed that both my father and me had seen how my daughter had changed for the better after attending the programme in Balik Pulau NS camp in Penang.

This is untrue. My daughter is a good kid and is the same before and after joining the NS Camp. Both my father and I had never told the Defence Minister as claimed by him and neither had we thanked him for it.

My daughter was selected to join the NS Camp for the 2008-9 session and she had duly complied. We have never talked about my daughter's experiences, good or bad in NS, because she is still under 21 and a student who is not involved in politics.

My family and I love our daughter and want to protect her privacy. We have shielded her from the glare of publicity so that she can grow up and enjoy life with her friends as a normal kid. We hope that Datuk Seri Ahmad can respect my daughter's privacy and not drag her into his political games to justify the NS programme.

If children of politicians venture into public life involving public interest, then they are subject to public scrutiny. However for BN leaders to try to use my children as political capital to boost BN when they are still studying and not involved in public life is wrong and regrettable.

This is not the first time that my children have been unfairly targeted by BN and UMNO leaders. Last year, my 15 year old son was defamed by UMNO leaders and UMNO Online for sexually molesting his classmate and that I have to pay RM200,000 to cover-up the scandal and transfer my son to another school. A picture of the alleged girl victim of my son was even put up by the UMNO blogs.

This cruel and barbaric lie by UMNO against my minor son was quickly exposed when the picture of the girl victim was discovered to be a fake and belonged to a Hong Kong chess grandmaster who had never met me or my son. So far no UMNO leaders had apologised to my son and me for this vicious lie that had caused my son to miss school for 2 days.

I urge UMNO and BN leaders to throw your lies at me if you must but please leave my children alone. They are still studying and are not in politics. By continuing to drag my children with lies or misrepresentation, is an act of desperation that shows their lack of moral values and absence of ethical judgment. Have BN and UMNO leaders run of ideas and ideals that their only political capital is to preach lies and hate not only against PR leaders but also at our children?

Penang Hopes That the RM4 billion High-Tech and Solar Energy Investments by Ibiden and Robert Bosch Solar Will Be Included in the 2011 December Investment Figures (en/cn)

Posted: 27 Jan 2012 07:39 PM PST

Penang hopes that the RM4 billion high-tech and solar energy investment by Ibiden and Robert Bosch Solar will be included in the 2011 December investment figures. So whilst the statement made by International Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir of a drop in investment compared to last year is correct, the final analysis can only be made when the December investment figure are tabulated.

In May 2011, the Penang State Government announced that Penang is targeting to achieve RM6.1 billion investments for 2011. Penang recorded its highest ever investment figures of RM 12.2 billion in 2010 topping the investment charts for the first time in history in Malaysia. A lower figure has been set to attract high value-added, high-tech, knowledge based companies that engender high-income, technology transfer and innovative industries.

Up to November 2011, Penang stood at RM6 billion in investments achieving the target of RM6.1 billion set. At the same time, there is a need to “digest” (consolidate) the record investments in 2010 so that the workers and skills shortage engendered does not overspill and damage the industry.

Penang hopes that the RM4 billion high-tech and solar energy investments by Ibiden and Robert Bosch Solar will be included into last year's investment figures which will then put Penang's investment at RM10 billion.

According to the recent report by investment and research firm Tholons on the 2012 Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations in the world, Penang has moved up 2 notches from 79 to 77 in ranking. The state government hopes to attract more of BPO and other preferred industries such medical, aerospace, LED and photovoltaic into Penang for 2012.

Lawatan ke Tapak Pembakaran Jalan Pantai

Posted: 27 Jan 2012 07:31 PM PST

Kenyataan Akhbar Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang Lim Guan Eng di Komtar, George Town Pada 27.1.2012

Saya merujuk kepada lawatan saya ke tapak pembakaran sepanjang Jalan Pantai, Butterworth bersebelahan dengan stesen bas sementara Penang Sentral, di mana 25 gerai dibakar semalam. Pagi ini semasa membuat lawatan saya telah menyatakan bahawa saya akan mempertimbangkan bantuan kewangan kepada mangsa peniaga dan meminta mereka bekerjasama dengan Pejabat Daerah dan MPSP dengan memberikan maklumat.

Oleh kerana tapak yang dibakar adalah tapak perniagaan maka mangsa peniaga tidak layak menerima bantuan Tabung TYT Pulau Pinang, yang dikhususkan hanya untuk mangsa-mangsa yang kehilangan rumah kediaman. Apa-apa pemberian Tabung TYT untuk mangsa perniagaan yang kehilangan gerai sepertimana yang berlaku di Jalan Pantai adalah melanggari peraturan yang ditetapkan.

Untuk membantu mangsa-mangsa perniagaan ini,saya bersedia menggunakan peruntukan saya sendiri tetapi perlu mendapatkan maklumat demi memastikan mereka adalah rakyat Malaysia. Kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang tidak mahu memberikan bantuan kepada yang tidak layak menerimanya, kerana difahami ada ramai peniaga di sana daripada negara asing. Saya kesal bahawa ada pihak tertentu yang cuba memutar-belitkan kenyataan saya tidak akan memberikan bantuan kewangan kepada orang asing sebagai enggan membantu mangsa peniaga tempatan tertentu.


Only Economic Policies That Are Clean, Fair, Competitive And Improves The Well-being Of The People As Well As Attract Back Talented Malaysians Can Help Transform Malaysia Into A High-Income Nation Enjoyed By All(en/cn).

Posted: 27 Jan 2012 07:24 PM PST

The time has come to implement economic policies that are clean, fair, competitive and improves the well-being of the people as well as attract back talented Malaysians that can help transform Malaysia into a high-income nation enjoyed by all. What better time than the year of the water dragon to initiate such changes so that the coming general elections marks the new beginning that would be enjoyed by all Malaysians rich and poor by 2020.

Present policies which are corrupt, opaque with no open tenders and benefits only certain cronies would only bring Malaysia backwards. A good comparison is South Korea. In 1970, Malaysia's Gross National Income(GNI) per capita was USD 380 as compared to South Korea USD 260. But 40 years later in 2010, Malaysia's GNI per capita was at USD 7,760 while South Korea had exceeded us by almost 3 times at USD19,890 (World Bank)

Malaysia's failure to compete is compounded by the horde of Malaysians leaving. Even the BN government concedes that 2 million Malaysians have left the country since Merdeka in 1957. Countless Malaysians have PR in foreign countries including present Ministers and former Ministers. No one blames the 2 million Malaysians for leaving when the present policies stresses more on politics of division and hate than results-oriented performance drive our best and brightest away.

A recent example is the unfair, harsh and humiliating treatment of temporary Chinese primary school teachers by reducing their benefits arbitrarily without any consultation. How much will it cost the Federal government to continue maintaining existing benefits or even increasing them to temporary teachers? I doubt that such costs will exceed the RM250 million National Feedlot Corporation scandal where money meant for rearing cows is used instead to purchase luxury condos.

Why allow the few cronies to earn extraordinary profits at the expense of 28 million Malaysians. For instance, it took RM 6 billion to build the North-South Highway. But the toll operators have collected RM 24.3 billion as at 31.12.2010 and yet can continue to collect toll till end 2038 and increase toll every year! As the toll operators have already made RM18.3 billion in profits, there is no reason why toll can not be abolished.

Even more talented Malaysians will leave if BN continues to blame the Chinese and minorities for the federal government's failed policies or use the Chinese threat to frighten the Malays. How can the Chinese be a threat to Malays when critical economic sectors such as banking, insurance, ports, highway toll concessions and infrastructure, transport, automotive industry, IPPs, sugar, rice, flour, plantation products, oil and gas are dominated by Malays?

We must grow up believing in our abilities, trusting each other and have faith that Malays and non-Malays can be world champions. Malays and non-Malay kids must grow up respecting each other as Malaysians and hating only corruption. 2000-9 is the lost decade of corruption where RM1,077 billion of "black money" was illicitly and secretly taken out of Malaysian.

Enough is enough! Let us implement policies that will stop corruption, wipe out poverty, attract back Malaysian talents so that Malaysia can be a high-income nation enjoyed by everyone regardless of race, religion or gender.

Instead of focusing on cronies, let us implement people-centric policies that are clean, fair, competitive and improves our standard of living.

Khairy should Get Out from the Racial Mindset

Posted: 27 Jan 2012 12:00 AM PST

I read with bemusement and disappointment not for the first time, MP for Rembau, Khairy Jamaluddin asking DAP to declare its number of Malay members to prove our 'multiracial' credentials.

It is unfortunate that Khairy is not able to rid himself of the UMNO paradigm of race-based ideology and politics. The DAP has never denied the fact that Malays form a small proportion of our membership base, and this "weakness" has been exploited by BN politicians stuck in the racial mindset to the hilt to frighten the Malay community into submission.

Khairy and his fellow BN leaders subcribes to the quota-based "multi-racial" definition where it can only be multi-racial if 70% of scholarships are awarded to Malays or if 30% of corporate wealth is in the hands of bumiputeras (excluding Government ownership).

The DAP's political ideology is based on social justice, democracy, freedom and equal opportunity and not based on race.  Hence we are multi-racial because we do not ban membership based on the colour of one's skin, unlike the key BN parties of UMNO, MCA and MIC.  The DAP accept all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or geography as members, as long as they believe in our struggles and subscribe to our political ideals.

There is no question that we face the uphill task of convincing the Malay community to join our struggles over the past decades, especially in the light of UMNO's use of racial arguments to fan sentiments, attract and retain members. However, our leaders have never been dismayed by the uphill battle and have no intention of sacrificing our ideals by doing a "Perkasa", just to attract more Malay members.  The means will not justify the ends.

Instead we believe that over time, the principles of social justice, freedom, democracy and equal opportunity will emerge victorious against race-supremacist ideologies.  Increasingly, we can see greater dissatisfaction among the Malay community of UMNO's antics of hiding corruption, cronyism and abuse of power under the guise of the New Economic Policy. We are happy that there are an increasing number of leaders and activists in the Malay community who have joined DAP recently because they believe in our cause.

The numbers will only increase once the Malay community, and Malaysians at large see past the lies printed in BN-owned mainstream media, and understand that the DAP causes will benefit all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion and geography.  Hopefully Khairy, of all people, will be able to rid himself of his preoccupation with race by then.
