Effectiveness and amalgamation of ministries

The amalgamation of ministry of education and ministry of higher education attracts attention. How does it work? After general election or the appointment of new minister, such thing occurs. Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin talks about Malaysian education as a regional hub. The public can perceive the truth. Its status in the world such as the rankings of its universities is a criterion.

Ban on public officials bidding for government contracts

The public understand that public officials including ministers and their relatives should not bid for government contracts. If this is enforced, scandals such as the National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) might not have happened.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Consultation & Prevention Panel repeats the above-stated principle. The Government must be fully committed and the people must speak up.

After May 5, thousands of people of all races continue to throng peaceful rallies in many parts of Malaysia. Malaysians want to know why with 52% of popular votes Pakatan Rakyat cannot form the federal government, whereas Barisan Nasional with 47% of popular votes is the Central Government.

KL traffic, floods & housing

The new Federal Territory Minister YB Tengku Adnan says he will focus on traffic, fladh flood and civil servant issues. We hope he truly means what he says.

There are many areas of traffic woes in Kuala Lumpur; these are mostly connected with Selangor. Flash floods occur; we need to improve the maintenance of rivers and monsoon drains. The housing problems are serious, including the defective Joint Management Bodies (JMBs) in some highrise flats. 

For example, JMB at Pelangi Magna, Kepong, owes Syabas RM77, 999; the water supply has been disconnected. JMBs at low-cost flats in Taman Fadason, Kepong, are facing the impasse of some residents refusing to pay service fees.

We keep the minister posted.

Effective measures against riverbank collapse

In Metro Prima, Kepong, there are two blocks of 17-storey Mutiara Magna condominium near the bank of Keroh River. There is a block of 17-storey low-cost flats opposite. Hitherto, there must be at least 7,000 residents.

Recently, the Irrigation Department has been implementing River of Life project. Suddenly, the river bank collapsed.

The Kuala Lumpur City Hall and the Irrigation Department must be watchful, taking effective measures to prevent riverbank landslides. There are 120 Km main rivers and 330 Km big drains in Kuala Lumpur.
