Yes they are not safe and not economical to maintain. People can tighten belts, Terengganu senior exco members, officials, can unwind by loosening their belts – it is a bit tight is it not. Scums of the gutters spending money to annoy the people who are suffering from every angle. And mind you Terengganu is not a rich state. Where is the conscience of the Mentri Besar and his group of plunderers.
Terengganu officials switch car brand
KUALA TERENGGANU: State exco members and senior officers started using their new Mercedes-Benz E200 Kompressor cars today.
The state bought 14 of the luxury cars for RM3.43mil to replace the Proton Perdana V6 Executive cars that had been purchased in 2004.
The new cars are for the exco members, the state assembly speaker, the state secretary, the state legal adviser and the state finance officer.
The new cars with tinted windows carry the state emblem with the wording “Exco Kerajaan Negeri” embossed on the number plate.
State Secretary Datuk Mokthar Nong said the decision to use Mercedes-Benz cars was made several months ago.
The state took delivery of the cars earlier this month.
He said the German cars were bought for the safety of the state officials who had to travel extensively and to reduce the cost of maintenance.“After much evaluation, the state felt the Mercedes-Benz cars are more reliable for long term use. It was also time to replace the Proton Perdanas,” he added.
