Why lah Ong Ka Ting? March 4, 2008Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, Democracy, Malaysia, Politics.

In my interactions with local residents at Kayu Ara and Desa Jaya (yes… a sliver of Kepong has been carved into Bukit Lanjan!), I was appalled to find that there are still places which had temporary Certificate of Fitness (CF) that have since lapsed. Yes, there are still people living in flats with no CFs!
Ong Ka Ting, who used to head the Ministry of Housing (now caretaker Minister) must think so poorly of those who are middle to lower middle income. In the papers, MCA puts out ads about how they are ‘delivering’ but yet its head allows abodes with no CFs in sight to be built. Another classic example of how greed supercedes basic fundamental concerns for human lives.
Ong and his counterparts in Gerakan, tries to frighten voters about the imaginery loss of ‘Chinese’ influence in the BN, if these two parties were to thrashed in 5 days times.
Frankly, someone like him does not qualify to be a Minister (addition note:- even my dad speaks better Malay than him) and it is dubious to assume MCA and Gerakan have any influence in the first place. (refer to keris waving for two consecutive years, dissolution during CNY etc.)
