(Ijok) Khir: Only RM 36 million?? April 18, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Democracy, Economy, Malaysia, Politics.
This RM36 million allocation is damn insulting to the people of Ijok.
After years of being left out from ‘development’ and considering Selangor is the nation’s FIRST ‘developed’ state, the good folks of Ijok deserve so much more.
Let’s take this sum of RM36 million as a base figure. Multiply by how many ‘Malaysian Plans’ we have (9) = RM 324 million.
Because I like the number ‘2’, I’ll multiply with RM 324 million = RM 648 million.
To make things easier to remember, I’ll round it up and make it RM650 million.
Khir … you can do it!

KUALA SELANGOR, April 18 (Bernama) — The Selangor government has allocated RM36 million for various development projects to be implemented within these two weeks in Ijok.
Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo said these involved the upgrading of public facilities such as road widening and resurfacing works as well as constructing drains and lighting up major roads.
“All of them will start immediately. We have chosen the contractors,” he said at a meet-the-people session here.
Tomorrow is the nomination for the Ijok state by-election while polling is on April 28. The seat fell vacant following the death of BN assemblyman Datuk K.Sivalingam in Chennai, India, from heart failure on April 4.
The Barisan Nasional has named Tanjung Karang MIC secretary K.Parthiban, 38, as its candidate while Parti Keadilan Rakyat is betting on former Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and Kumpulan Guthrie chief executive officer Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, 61.
Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir said the projects were not aimed to fish for votes as claimed by the opposition as they had been planned by the state government for quite some time.
He urged the contractors involved to complete the projects as soon as possible, warning that the contracts would be awarded to other parties if they failed to do so.
