One after another, embezzlement and abuse of power in Selangor are made public, yet the only answer Azmin could provide is he is not aware.
Within these few months, scandals involving the Mentri Besar Incorporation (MBI), Jana Niaga Sdn. Bhd. (JNSB) and the University of Selangor (Unisel), as well as several other reports including the issue of land sales in Ijok, proved how much Azmin administration practices abuse of power and is indeed corrupt.
After the Sungai Sireh Tambahan residents complaints on Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) land ownership was deliberately ignored, and now a more shocking issue rose from Sungai Yu.
The squandering of granting land in Kampung Sungai Yu was revealed by local residents. It is said that Members of the Electing Committee are appointed by PKR Selangor to determine who is most ‘eligible’. Out of 175 approved applicants, there are 18 puzzling approved recipients.
They are found to have no identification registered in the National Registration Department (NRD) records. None of the mysterious recipients is known to local residents. Not only that, they did not appear as voters as at the Election Commission (EC) revision gazetted on June 20 for the Last Quarter of 2017 lists.
When scrutinised further, three families believed to be PKR leaders in Sungai Yu, they are involved directly to clinch at least 15 lots of land. One of the three families is said to acquire up to nine lots in his own name, his wife, son, sister and in-law. Another recipient applying similar method is given four lots.
In the lot application approval terms and conditions, local residents are given priority and they must earn less than RM3,000 per month. It is rather shocking when there are among the approved applicants reside more than 400 kilometres away from the Sungai Yu where some of them are from Batu Kawan Penang; Ipoh Barat in Perak; Masjid Tanah in Malacca and Rembau in Negeri Sembilan.
Worst still that among the approved applicants, there are a 43-year-old businessman and two medical doctors aged 37and 45 years old respectively.
However, Selangor PKR-led government, through its Chairman for the Standing Committee on Poverty, Caring Government and Plantation Workers, V Ganabatirau, who heads the selection committee and through its representative had deliberately avoided to respond by simply giving the reason that the issue has now been reported to the police.
Hence, is this how Azmin’s so-called caring government works?
