Kancil Car Park's Saga :: The pot calls kettle is black (Not metalic black)

In his eagerness to rebut Ng Yen Yen’s chiding, Penang Chief Minister has lost his cool and made two silly mistakes or irresponsible statements in his press conference yesterday. See youtube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJELAJ8LF3k&feature=player_embedded

Firstly, he argued he has no link with PDC Consultancy Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of PDC where he serves as a Chairman. In order to support his point, he even said and implied that PM Najib also should not be held responsible for NFC Cow Bungalow scandal from his subordinate.

This is an amazing twist of tongue from a politician who raped his own CAT principle merely to cover up his own mistake.

The fact is any CEO for a company is accountable for any decision made by his/her subordinates.

Secondly, the investigation panel’s official report was not released to public prior to his press conference, but he questioned Ng’s credibility as a doctor on understanding technical jargons in the report is also an uncalled for and immature response.

A panel consists of a Professor, a President of a professional body, etc. does not guarantee the report is accurate, unbiased and professionally presented.

The fact is any technical report has to be reviewed and debated based on facts and data by independent engineers and professionals in the field.

As a trained engineer, I have several doubts on the technical validities and conclusions in the panel’s report leaked out to the press earlier.

I hope Lim puts the panel report in the Penang state government’s website for 28 million Malaysians to download and review the validity of the reports. There are many qualified Malaysian professionals from the world’s top 10 universities are willing to review the report for free. This is a true transparency we are asking for from PR government.

In a nutshell, both Ng Yen Yen and Lim Guan Eng are accountable for the kancil car park’s blunder. Both are trying to wash their hands off is a shame and dirty political game. We do not need another pot calls kettle is black in Malaysia political landscape.

I quote a Malay saying, “Dua ekor gajah berlagak, kancil yang dipijak mati.” Stop bickering now, Ng and Lim are no more representing their parties, they are representing rakyat in the state and federal level. They must talk to each other and work together to serve their end customers, the rakyat.
