Justice For All Malaysia

Personal Musings

Shah Alam, 24 Oktober; Saya telah ke Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor pagi tadi untuk bertemu pimpinan EXCO Wanita KeADILan – YB Gan Pei Nei, Elizabeth Wong, Rodziah Ismail dan Haniza Talha.

Kehadiran di sana merupakan pengalaman saya pertama kali berada di DUN Selangor dan menyaksikan persidangannya.   Saya tidak dapat mengelak dari membuat perbandingan perjalanan persidangan dan substance perbincangan dengan yang berlangsung di Parlimen.

Perbahasan di DUN Selangor, khususnya daripada pihak Kerajaan Negeri Selangor adalah jauh lebih perinci dan bermakna daripada yang biasa didapati di Parlimen.   Perbahasan lebih terkawal, cultured dan beradab.

Dewannya juga cantik, dengan setting yang cermat agar dapat dimanafaatkan sepenuhnya oleh Ahli-Ahli yang Berhormat dan pihak-pihak Jabatan Kerajaan yang memberikan input terhadap perbahasan.

Kuantan, October 21; Last Sunday, after sending my children to their respective educational institutions (we seem to be communicating much in the car these days), I had wanted to rush to Kuantan to meet the grassroots.   Alas, on the road in Subang, the car’s accelerator suddenly got stuck and the gear didn’t work.   Well, I was quick enough to play with the clutch and brought the car to the roadside.   It was close to 8pm and quite dark without anyone in sight.   I didn’t think I should leave the car – this is post-modern Malaysian urban area where crime rate is high.

It took me some minutes to think the next course of action…then called up some people…A couple of friends called back to say that help was on their way.   Well, thank God for such friends in need…

It was some while when someone called to seek my actual location.   It was some another while when the help came.   He knocked on my screen, smiling…

“Apa hal ni , Kak Rozaini?” he inquired with his continuous smile; he looked young and energetic.

“Laa…sorrylah menyusahkan you malam-malam macam ni.  Ha-ah, kereta ni tiba-tiba accelerator nya jam semacam…kete tak boleh move.   I have no idea apa kenanya…” I responded.   Saw that he brought his wife and two little children.   One of them had come out of their car parked behind mine and was so eager to help Dad repair my car.

While Ahmad(not his real name) saw to my car, I chatted with his wife, Wati(not her real name either).   They were from Shah Alam.   My friend whom I called had contacted another friend, who contacted Ahmad.

Ahmad, it seemed was an expert in cars and often help friends in distress.   Frankly, I did not know him personally.   The bond of friendship from the friend I called had reached Ahmad to relieve me from my distress.   Ahmad, to my surprise was actually an Ahli Majlis in the Selangor State (from KeADILan).   Great choice of an Ahli Majlis.   Is he the sample for the rest of Ahli-Ahli Majlis Pakatan Rakyat in all states that that it governs?   I hope so.

My car repaired…as good as it was before…God knows how the lid cover of the engine oil tank got stuck on the accelerator gadget.   Must be my son who last filled the engine oil tank – he must have forgotten to put back the lid and the lid just rolled to jam the accelerator’s gadget.

But I was really impressed with Ahmad, his wife and little children who came all the way from Shah Alam to help.   I wonder, what was the process that produce such products like Ahmad & his family?

Well, I decided to cancel going ahead to Kuantan, as the advice by Ahmad and his wife, too, and went home  before travelling to Kuantan early the next day.

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.
