What Subsidy?

No end of short sighted, money wasting people in Malaysia…

(We don’t have money falling out from the sky for white elephant projects – a fact some idiots in Malaysia have yet to realize it. Image source: Lababo)

It is not 1st of August yet for the increase of petrol and sugar price but already there are already calls for waste more of taxpayers’ money

The wife of the Prime Minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, today opened the Sabah Wisma Wanita here and asked the Finance Ministry to consider allocating funds for a similar building in every state

The Sabah Wisma Wanita was built at a cost of RM18.7 million provided by the state government.

Please lah – don’t tell me that all these years, the development and welfare program for women have never taken off without a building? Don’t we have a Ministry and well-fed, back door Minister for that? You need a building before you can do anything ah? We have many under-utilised Government buildings that can be used for the same purpose. What about those under the local authorities?

No need to waste RM18.7 million x 17 states (including 3 FTs) = RM320 million to have one “bullshit” in every state. Before you can say “the fat lady says”, the RM320 million “construction” costs will balloon up and we would have another “palace like mess“. At the end, the taxpayers would be footing the bill and those who proposed these white elephants would have wash their hands off.

Instead, focus on more serious issues that are facing women in Malaysia like this one. Don’t syiok sendiri with just having fancy buildings and having good image on the media.

Enough of wastages! Not when people are already not happy with the calls of reducing the subsidies and on the other side, politicians (including some fat wife of someone) happily wanting to burn off taxpayers’ money like their own.

P.s. Every state includes states under PR? Just asking since everyone knows about  the double standard at Federal level when it comes to PR led states.

  1. Did you know that the wife of the Prime Minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, when she opened the Sabah Wisma Wanita in KK and asked the Finance Ministry to consider allocating funds for a similar building in every state in her speech, she is deadly serious about it?

    The Sabah Wisma Wanita was built at a cost of RM18.7 million provided by the state government, and multiply that by 12, see how much you get. Take away or add 12% to that, see how much she will get.

    The Finance Ministry is now very busy looking for the funds, and from where they can siphon them. EPF, LUTH, LTAT, FELDA, etc, watch out!

    1. I just worry some over-zealous civil servants wanting to make this lady happy…will be looking high and low to fulfill her “request”. So, how not to worry about the reduction of subsidy?
