The central government must give recognizance to the fact that in the 5 states ruled by Pakatan Rakyat, there are both supporters of Barisan Nasional and the opposition. By diverting the development funds through MARA means:

  • the voters who voted Barisan Nasional in the 5 states are deprived of any development
  • Mara is synonymous with Malays, and hence Chinese and Indians in the 5 states can forget about getting any help.
  • the government is driving the people more closer to the Pakatan Rakyat, and in the elections to come, Barisan Nasional can forget any support, because the policy goes against the Malays, Chinese and the Indians.

This is a move just to cut your nose to spite your face. Barisan Nasional loses in the end.   

Funds For SEDCs In Five States Will Now Be Channelled Through Mara

IPOH, April 26 (Bernama) — The Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development Ministry will stop disbursing development funds to the state economic development corporations (SEDCs) in five states controlled by Pakatan Rakyat namely Kelantan, Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor. Its minister Datuk Noh Omar said the fund would now be channelled to Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara).
“From now onwards it will be given through Mara,” he told reporters after opening the annual general meeting of the Perak chapter of the Malaysia Malay Chamber of Commerce here Saturday.
He said the disbursement of the fund was a long-held policy to help the people.
As the state governments controlled by the Pakatan Rakyat were hostile to the ministry, it was better for the fund to be disbursed through Mara, he added. Noh also said that the move by the Selangor and Perak state governments to impose rentals on training centres run by the ministry showed that they were not adopting people-friendly policies.
He said from August, the Sabak Bernam Giat Mara in Selangor which occupied 10 units of Sabak Bernam District Council’s stalls would have to pay a monthly rental of RM1,500.
A skill training centre in Lahat near here would also have to pay rental soon.
There were no rentals prior to this, he said.
“We will pay the rent for the benefit of the trainees,” he said, adding that the two state governments were thinking only in terms of profits without regards for the need to serve the people.

  1. Just goes to show how stupid these so called “ministers” can be. No right in left brain and nothing left in right brain.
