Lim: Orkestra filharmonik satu pembaziran
Fauwaz Abdul Aziz | May 13, 08 9:08pm
RM130,000 sebulan? Itulah gaji bulanan yang dibayar kepada konduktor Orkestra filharmonik Malaysia (MP0).

Dan menurut ketua menteri Pulau Pinang, Lim Guan Eng, langkah mengekal konduktor dan anggota MPO yang ramai rakyat asing, adalah satu pembaziran wang Petronas.

lim guan engSetiausaha agung DAP itu membangkitkan isu tersebut sewaktu membahaskan titah ucapan Yang di-Pertuan Agong di Dewan Rakyat hari ini.

Lim mendedahkan bahawa kos membiayai anggota MPO itu mencecah RM3.5 juta sebulan.

Menurutnya, 95 peratus pemuzik asing itu dibayar antara RM16,000 hingga RM28,000 sebulan dan mendapat dua bulan cuti bergaji setiap tahun. Konduktornya pula dibayar RM130,000 sebulan manakala penolongnya dibayar gaji RM50,000 sebulan.

Sejak 10 tahun ia ditubuhkan, kata Lim, kos pembiayaan orkestra tersebut berjumlah RM500 juta.

Lim juga mendakwa, bekas konduktor residen MPO, rakyat Malaysia – Ooi Chean See – telah meletakkan jawatan selepas tidak diberi peranan sewajarnya.

Katanya, pemuzik tempatan dipinggirkan manakala Petronas membelanja begitu banyak wang untuk melayan orang asing, terutama dari Eropah.

Menurut Lim, sikap tersebut yang membuat rakyat begitu marah dengan Barisan Nasional (BN).

Sebaliknya, Lim yang juga ahli parlimen Bagan, menggesa kerajaan supaya mengagihkan secara saksama perolehan dan keuntungan syarikat minyak nasional itu untuk faedah rakyat Malaysia, terutama yang miskin, bukannya mementingkan Pengeluar Kuasa Bebas (IPP).

Sebagai contoh, katanya, ia termasuk bayaran bonus RM6,000 setiap tahun kepada setiap keluarga dan ia tidak akan menjejaskan keuntungan Petroasn yang mencecah hampir RM80 bilion.

Mengenai pembelian jet pejuang Sukhoi dari Russia, Lim bertanya mengapa harga yang dipersetujui adalah AS$50 juta sebuah, sedangkan India membeli pesawat yang sama pada harga AS$40 juta sebuah.

Ramalan pelaburan

Sementara itu, menteri besar Selangor, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim (PKR-Bandar Tun Razak), dalam ucapannya, mempersoalkan unjuran bahawa 12 juta pekerjaan akan diwujudkan dalam tempoh lima tahun akan datang, ke arah mewujudkan 23 juta peluang pekerjaan pada 2013.

Katanya, andaian hendaklah berdasarkan kepada angka-angka yang betul, kerana memandangkan keadaan ekonomi semasa dunia, angka tersebut mungkin terpaksa diubah.

Beliau juga mempersoalkan ramalan bahawa RM30 bilion akankhalid ibrahim dilaburkan dalam bidang hartanah, pelancongan dan sektor rekreasi memandangkan “bencana” yang menimpa Zon Bebas Pelabuhan Klang dan mempersoalkan faedah projek Iskandar Malaysia di Johor kepada negara.

Mengenai keputusan kerajaan Selangor memberi bekalan 20 kubik meter air percuma, Khalid berkata, risiko pembaziran air diimbangi dengan sistem bil progresif di mana penggunakan air seterusnya akan lebih mahal.

Berhubung dakwaan Ahmad Maslan (BN-Pontian) bahawa pemberian bekalan air percuma itu boleh dianggap sebagai ‘merasuah’ rakyat, Khalid mencadangkan ahli-ahli Umno Selangor yang tidak bersetuju dengan langkah tersebut, supaya jangan menerima bekalan air percuma dari kerajaan negeri.

Dengan itu, katanya, bekalan tersebut boleh disalurkan kepada sekolah agama, sekolah Cina dan sekolah Tamil.

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
