By having such a leader in Penang is proven to be disastered and luckily Penangite rejected them mostly in 12th General Election. Hope Penangite who still support these idiots can know their true faces now. If they (UMNO) think by stopping the federal funding to Penang's mega projects as a way to revenge Penangite who support DAP, PKR & PAS, then they are totally hell wrong! Anyway, Penangite do not want PORR, can't you Datuk Azhar Ibrahim understand the wish of Penangite? And Penang Monorail is under Scomi, your BN President's son!
Time will tell and people will understand why Penangite are lacking behind compared to other states, because we are having these short-sighted BN leaders. Opps, they are NOT qualify as leader anyway!
News from The Star:
PENANG: The state Umno will “persuade” the Federal Government to scrap all the mega projects in the state in view of the people’s clear rejection of Barisan Nasional.
Since Penangites do not want development, the Federal Government should not force it on them, said state Umno liaison committee secretary Datuk Azhar Ibrahim.
He said that this was not Penang Umno taking revenge “but we are actually giving the people what they want”.
“They voted for change, so let us see what the DAP can do,” he said after the party’s emergency meeting at Menara Umno yesterday.
Azhar, who is Penaga assemblyman, was appointed the state Opposition Leader at the meeting.
Meanwhile, Umno liaison committee deputy chief Datuk Abdul Rashid Abdullah hit out at the new administration for its decision not to practise the New Economic Policy (NEP).
