Pengurusan tenaga negara yang tidak menepati keperluan rakyat

Posted on: June 8, 2008

Kiriman Rozaini:

Isu kenaikan harga minyak mendedahkan kelalaian kerajaan umno-BN dalam mengutamakan kepentingan rakyat dan masa depan mereka.   Kerajaan umno-BN telah berulang kali diperingatkan oleh ahli-ahli dalam sektor energy (tenaga) untuk memikirkan keperluan, kesan dan kemaslahatan jangka panjang terhadap negara dan rakyat dalam penggunaan energy.  Insiden kenaikan minyak tanpa sebarang dasar yang jelas dan nyata mengenai keperluan alternative energy bagi menampung pertambahan yang berterusan dalam penggunaan energy di masa depan adalah suatu sikap yang amat tidak bertanggungjawab kerajaan umno-BN.
Negara-negara yang peka dalam soal ini telah jauh ke hadapan dalam melaksanakan kajian dan penyelidikan yang serius untuk menangani isu bekalan bahanapi minyak yang akan kehabisan suatu hari nanti dan juga kenaikan harga minyak yang akan menjadi tamparan hebat terhadap rakyat dalam menjalani kehidupan seharian mereka dan memenuhi keperluan diri dan keluarga mereka di masa hadapan.  Itu disebabkan kenaikan harga minyak mempunyai chain reactions (reaksi berentetan) kepada seluruh ruang lingkup kehidupan rakyat Malaysia; yang akan menhasilkan berbagai bentuk tekanan dalam kehidupan mereka.
Di antara bahanapi alternatif yang boleh diperluaskan ialah gas NGV.   Ia telahpun digunakan oleh sebahagian teksi-teksi yang beropersai di beberapa tempat di negara ini, khususnya Kuala Lumpur.   Malangnya penawaran alternative energy NGV ini terlalu terhad, dengan itu tidak mencetuskan anjakan dari petrol ke gas.   Saya juga telah difahamkan bahawa ada gas pipeline yang melalui Johor hingga ke utara negara.   Gas adalah sebahagian dari proses pengeluaran minyak juga.   Justru, bagi mengalihkan penggunaan minyak ke gas bukan suatu usaha yang tidak munasabah.   Persoalannya ialah kenapa kerajaan umno-BN tidak melihat keperluan sedemikian sebagai cara dan usaha untuk membantu rakyat menghadapi kenaikan harga minyak yang tidak mungkin dapat dielakkan sama sekali?  Kenaikan harga minyak ini bukan suatu yang sukar dijangkakan atau tidak disangka-sangka akan berlakunya.
Bagi para pemimpin politik yang mentadbir kerajaan negara Malaysia, adakah wujud perkara yang lebih utama dari memikir mengenai kepentingan dan keperluan rakyat jelata?Untuk kesekian kalinya, Kerajaan umno-BN memang tidak berupaya lagi memikirkan perkara-perkara untuk kepentingan dan kebaikan rakyat Malaysia.   Dengan itu, pastilah rakyat akan dibebani terus-menerus di bawah pemerintahannya.  Tunggu saja lagi kenaikan-kenaikan  harga hampir segala barangan dan perkhidmatan sebagai hasil lonjakkan harga minyak ini.

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.
