On The Other Hand!!


Klang Valley chokes up


KUALA LUMPUR: Round-the-clock roadblocks have been set up in the Klang Valley as part of crime-prevention activities in the lead up to the illegal assembly called by the Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) in the city this Sunday.

The assembly is to submit a petition with 100,000 signatures to Queen Elizabeth II to appoint a Queen’s Counsel to represent the Indian community in a class action suit against the British government for bringing Indians as labourers to the then Malaya and exploiting them.

The suit, filed at the Royal Courts of Justice in London by Hindraf chief P. Wathyamoorthy in August, seeks compensation of up to US$4tril (RM13.5tril), or US$1mil (RM3.4mil) for every Indian in Malaysia.

This will make every Malaysian Indians either a millionaire or a laughing stock of the British. And if you ever had a chance to visit England please don’t ever declare yourself a Malaysian Indian.

Look at the bright side, if you’re forefather were not hijacked to Malaya, what would you be in India? Soruuu pun not sure!

By now even a mamak like Zam would declare an Indian.

Flat tyre for Pak Lah in Singapore

SINGAPORE: Singaporean officials were caught with red faces when the official car carrying Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi suffered a puncture while on the way to the airport.

The puncture occurred just a few kilometres away from Changi Airport. Abdullah was heading home after attending the Asean summit and the East Asian summit here since Monday.

According to officials, the BMW7 series car was forced to stop along the highway.

Abdullah and his wife, Datin Seri Jeanne Abdullah hopped into a security car since there was no other official car available.

Officials said since Abdullah and his wife were in the security car, two Singapore security officials were left at the side of the highway.

Singaporeans are testing AAB and Johoreans, before they really embark on their Plan A. Plan B? God knows.

Hefty RM380mil bill if toll rates stay

THE Government will have to fork out a total of RM380mil to compensate toll concessionaire companies next year if the Cabinet decides not to increase toll rates.

Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said although the Cabinet had not decided on the issue, the ministry had worked out the amount of compensation to be paid.

Except for the Penang Bridge where the toll rate is scheduled to be revised on Oct 1, seven expressway operators are due to revise their rates on Jan 1.

The Government would have to compensate Ampang-Ulu Kelang Elevated Highways RM28mil, North-South Expressway (central region) RM18mil, Seremban-Port Dickson RM178mil, Kulim-Butterworth Expressway RM10mil, Second Link to Singapore RM6mil, Sprint Highway RM34mil, NKVE RM9mil and Penang Bridge RM22mil, he said.

The Government, having increased toll charges of the Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP) from RM1 to RM1.60 instead of RM2.10, would have to pay Litrak, the operator of LDP, RM75mil.

I’m confused!! Does that mean all those concessionaire companies profit comes from Government that is you and me?? Like this A Keong or Pak Chat or Wak Karno from Pasar Tani can do better.

Malaysian memang bolih!!!
