Is the relocation of Parliament to Putrajaya going to be another case of flip-flop, after the sports betting fiasco?
In his written parliamentary reply to Sim Tong Him (DAP-Kota Melaka), Nazri said the relocation was decided by the cabinet recently.
But according to Malaysiakini, Nazri later clarified to the press that the matter was still being mulled over by Cabinet. “It’s not decided yet… We will bring it to the Cabinet to be discussed,” he said.
Not again! Flip-flop – or testing the waters?
Even Khairy disagrees with the RM800 million plan.
disagrees w/ building a new Parliament in Putrajaya. Unnecessary. Money can be better spent on other programs for the rakyat.
Parliament underwent extensive refurbishment couple of years back. Ya still some leaks in the roof but doesn’t require relocation.
I thought the country was supposed to be short of funds; so the government had to slash/remove “subsidies” for sugar, cooking oil, hospital fees and petrol and introduce GST.
So where is the RM800 million (plus the inevitable cost over-runs) for the relocation coming from?
And think of the greater distances that MPs have to travel to Putrajaya and the unnecessary construction. Not eco-friendly either!
Umno is running out of ideas. They are unwilling to make real changes – or maybe they are just incapable of changing old habits, hot air over NEM notwithstanding.
