If Penang still under BN’s ruling, KBP will not be any issue at all. KBP will be long gone ,completely demolished, all the poor folks in KBP will get nothing! And it is sacarstic that these people try to get help from BN when they think PKR government don’t offer them enough compensation. Just think logically, who’s the ‘boss’ behind the developer that bought this piece of land with dirt cheap price, you think KBP’s folk will really get help from them ….

Dear Anil, I read that now KBP problem is now settled – the KBP residents decided to take up the dbl-storey house and $8000. My wishes – all the best to them in their new residence (temporary and future). I am wondering about the cows and goats, chicken and duck. Perhaps you can advise them to VERY POLITELY talk to LGE-govt for renting/using a piece of unused land for the birds and cattle to graze? Of course the cowherds are responsible to ensure no strays. (the cattles can stray from KBP to Minden Height to eat up our shrubs 🙁… Read more »

There is no denying the fact that there are a whole lot of people out there who are envious and jealous of the good fortunes of the KBP Folks who had been compensated with RM 8,000 and a 500K house, brokered by the State led PR Government. Who in their wildest dreams would think that such a compensation can be brokered by a State Government for the Rakyat? This is unheard of in the history of Malaysia, but it had been done by the PR Government for the Rakyat. This is what we want where the interests of the Rakyat… Read more »

To eagle-eye I am not here to contradict your statements or to dwell further on a matter that had been solved and done! What is the point of crying over spilt milk? Just be magnanimous enough to congratulate the KBP folks who had agreed to the compensation done by the PR Government. Again, I request you to think whether the KBP folks would have got this extremely lucrative offer of compensation if the state is under the BN? Since you are “mind set” that the PR Govt. had not kept their promise, well, please fight for the KBP folks, through… Read more »

//You name me another blunder by PR govt….and I can easily give you a few other big BN blunders… . So who is the bigger devil????// Penangite, Is PR competing with BN on the number and scale of blunders? You are pathetic. This isnt about the size of the devil . We dont want devils! that is why the BN was booted out. This is about what the DAP promised and didnt deliver. This is about what the PR govt could have done which it didnt do. Why is LGE refusing to declassify the Exco minutes after March2008. What happened… Read more »

It is absolutely clear now the poor village folks had been seriously and badly exploited by those who had their own interests at hand, rather than those of the KBP folks. To those who had accepted the deal brokered by the state Government, congratulations and well done. You deserve what you get, and a 500k double storey home for free is something most Malaysians can dream of. Forget whether you are the legal owner of the land, forget about who is right or wrong, what is important is that you are amply rewarded for your prudence and wisdom. To those… Read more »

1. It all started as to who is the owner of the land: KBP said it’s theirs but no proof Koperasi showed proof of purchase. It’s theirs. Verdict (albeit bias) the Court ruled against KBP. 2. What should be done: KBP wanted LGE to show proof of fraudulant – hence reverse sale of land. KBP wanted land back. To preserve as heritage. KBP wanted assurance and clear road-map of 2-stry compensation. DAP wanted fair compensation to KBP – but what it thinks fair may not be fair to others. LGE cannot/dont want to show proof of fraudulant – figures you… Read more »

Why isn’t anyone pointing the guns at KTK? He should in fact be answer to this. Good deal has been lost due to ignorance from the KBP rep or maybe the people got disillussioned with the DPM before the Permatang Pasir elections, even dare to accuse LGE for doing nothing on the case. So stop … about LGE after what he has done for the resident of KBP!!! He’s not your fall guy to begin with. Just wait for your DPM and his slogans.

Hi Eagle Eye and others who are critical of the PR govt. Lets talk facts. If you think this KBP issue is the blunder of LGE PR govt. Than I can name you a few bigger blunders by BN GOVT….PKFZ, ISA, Teoh Beng Hock, Kugan, BMF scandal etc. You name me another blunder by PR govt….and I can easily give you a few other big BN blunders… . So who is the bigger devil???? Dont simply shoot. Nobody is perfect. At least LGE tried to get this TOL residents a comfortable home when most of us penangites only live in… Read more »

Anil, I got to agree with all the outcome of the probes including the Kampung Buah Pala must be made known as soon as possible. However, using that as the pretext that these villagers would be staying there forever would be “Castle in the Air”. Fairy Tale dream! Anil, Like it or not. It’s Economy, Stupid! Eng Soon, you hear me! It’s Economy! It’s economical benefits to developers to develop the land. It’s also economical benefits to villagers to secure the best deal possible. Anil, The problem was these villagers refused to be realistic. One good analogy is Arab Isreali… Read more »

Hope the LGE government were able to sleep well last night.

Next time you come out with allegations about the former BN government actions, we will definitely think twice or thrice……

Ong, kalau LGE made an honest mistake, I say we move on and that he doesn’t make the SAME MISTAKE twice.
Pakatan and BN must always “listen to the people”.
There is a danger that there are those that intentionally ignore and continue making the same mistakes over and over again. Only time can tell. Let’s wait and see what other stupid blunders by Penang CM Lim Guan Eng to add to his contribution list in Malaysian history.
Not everyone can be Lee Kuan Yew .

Thanks SOS for your proposed ways forward.
What is happening at KBP may be development, but it is not progress – each action like this slips a country further back from attaining its goal of developed nation status – its time to rethink.

Ong Eu Soon, I can understand your feeling. You are jealous because people get fixed asset worth RM500 for free, but you still need to serve your bank housing loan every month. You are jealous on PKR govt able to negotiate with developer for this deal but your BN govt unable to do anything previouly for more than 50 years. Your are jealous on PKR can give the house title to most of the Perakian but your BN govt only those top head like Khir Toyo able to buy ‘bunga-lo’.

OngEuSoon – I pity your IQ capability. 1. You demonstrated lack of knowledge in Management. When a newly appointed manager takes over in office, the 1st few months are trying to grasps the organizations of offices,its people and big issues like PGCC before going down the ‘fields’. LGE would be also doing just that, tackling priority issues first. When the final payment was done 19 days after 308 how would LGE know and also its the normal operations of payment – LGE does not take care of minor activities like payments in civil offices! Dont tell me you know what… Read more »

My dear Indian friends. This is a wake up call for you all. Nothing much can be done in a capitalist set up. Money talks. People will do anything for money. To some money is God. The fittest will survive in this game. Blame yourselves for what has happened. You have no genuine leaders to help you. The are good talkers, though. Most Indian leaders have no power to change the formula. Gerakan was of no help to you all. They never hinted anything to you when the land was about to be sold. Why? You are poor and have… Read more »

Dear MIC, Please see the cow head by your UMNO brothers Whole Malaysians are insulted, please protest to Hishamuddin… And please pay those who doesn’t sign the deal with Maika shares. Ask also your Gerakan brothers why they sold of the land when they are in charge. Use your brain to think can we sell land matter in 3 weeks time. You stupid idiot, when Pakatan won the state government, it took them 1 week to be sworn in and few days to to determine their exco line up. You think LGE can see all the case files in 1… Read more »

Congratulations DAP cyber troopers. You guys are truly dedicated to your cause.
I have said it before and I say it again, LGE is not fit to be a CM, he can only be an opposition politician.

When DAP was in opposition they screamed Malaysian Malaysia.
Now that they are in power they are no different from BN.
Big Business always wins.

Ong Yu Soon, i believe you are a good guy but things are not as simple as you think… and this is not the first time houses are being demolished.

Do you know one was killed when Farlim evicted the poor farmers in Thean Teik Estate? Where were the voices then? I didnt see any one jump at Gerakan’s leader? Why?

When i watched the tv just now, i felt very, very sad, for the people of Kg Buah Pala.

If i want to blame i will blame Koh Tsu Koon, get it?
