Malaysiakini - Selangor MB 'father of hypocrites'
Allowing the controversial Kinrara-Damansara Expressway (Kidex) project to go on will deem Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali the “father of all hypocrites”, says the state Umno.
Selangor Umno chairperson Noh Omar said Azmin was beginning to show his true colours and has forgotten his promise to serve the people.
Referring to Azmin's decision to continue with the Kidex agreement, Noh said Azmin was being hypocritical as he was merely 'all talk but no action' and that the menteri besar’s motive reeked of personal interest. [...]
The Kidex controversy is one of the reasons former menteri besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was asked to step down in the first place.
Khalid's administration was flayed for its handling of the Kidex issue, and there were massive objections to the highway from Petaling Jaya residents.
Azmin had promised to review the project as well as all other highway projects involving the state government.
“The most important aspect of Kidex is whether all conditions are fulfilled. We will review all agreements,” Azmin had said upon assuming his post as menteri besar.
Last Friday, Azmin, after his visit to the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), said the state government will not oppose to the construction of Kidex.
A few days back, Azmin Ali backed fatwa against SIS for having as deviated from Islam in subscribing to “religious liberalism and pluralism”.
Now, he backs the continuation of Kidex. Hey, didn't PKR make 'noise' about Hafarizam Harun, a prominent Umno lawyer, being a director in a company that was awarded the highway project? Wasn't former MB Khalid Ibrahim excoriated for allowing Kidex?
Thunderous applause for Azmin Ali please.
|BTW, is that Captain Anwar?|
No wonder UMNO and Dr Mahathir in particular had backed (directly or indirectly) his MB-ship - see TMI's Dr Mahathir supports Azmin as Selangor menteri besar.
I did ponder over his becoming the first non-Selangorean to be MB of Selangor.
And I wonder whether (though I won't be surprised if) UMNO will soon rule Selangor again, as demanded by Ah Jib Gor, wakakaka.
