UMNO is using a private owned, Utusan to twist and lie about anything. But LGE goes a step further by using Buletin Mutiara funded by public fund to twist and lie.
Both BN and PR governments have to be responsible for kancil car park’s blunder. Ng Yen Yen and Lim Guan Eng both are spinless politicians who have never accepted responsibility and accountability.
PR machai is taking Buletin Mutiara like a Bible and expect me to believe it blindly, otherwise my mental health is in question.
PR running dogs are hitting below belt like UMNO PapaButa.
Twisted take on fiasco
GEORGE TOWN: The state government’s bi-monthly bulletin has misled the people with its take on the controversial ‘Kancil car park’, said Bukit Bendera MCA division chief Tang Heap Seng.
He said its recent “misleading essay” had led the public into believing that the state government had nothing to do with all that had gone wrong because it was a federal project.
“Please be very clear that while the Federal Government funded the car park, its implementation, calling of tender and construction were all under the administration of the Penang Development Corporation (PDC).
“This is something the public must be made aware of. It’s because they do not know the administrative procedures involved, they think the state government is not to be blamed,” he said yesterday.
Tang said Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng should just accept the responsibility as he was “a YB to the rakyat” and owed them an explanation.
He said the inconvenience continued for residents and visitors to the tourist attraction.
Slated for demolition, the car park at the foot of Penang Hill continues to be a bone of contention for the state government.
The issue has been thrown into centre stage once again by Buletin Mutiara that front-paged a comment defending the state against allegations of blame.
The two-and-a-half-page comment entitled ‘A big lie over a small car park’ placed the blame of the failed car park on the Federal Government.
The writer alleged the Government had failed to study the project in depth and monitor the construction of the complex.
It also pointed the finger at the previous Barisan Nasional state administration, claiming that the administration’s predecessor played “a major role” in the blunder.
The comment, in the December issue, was attributed to Lim’s media consultant Thomas Lee Seng Hock.
State Gerakan Publicity, Information and Communications Bureau chief Dr Thor Teong Gee said the article was a poor reflection of the competency, accountability and transparency (CAT) principles.
He said as a state-owned publication, it was obliged to print the truth and not political rhetoric.
