SURAT TERBUKA KEPADA YB RAFIZI RAMLI

Sebab sekarang ini macam dah trend, asal sahaja ada perkara yang tak puas hati mesti nak tulis surat terbuka, maka MatRodi juga nak tulis surat terbuka. :-p

Ke hadapan Ahli Parlimen Pandan YB Rafizi Ramli.

Politik Malaysia bertuah kerana mempunyai seorang ahli politik yang dikatakan bijak pandai, petah berbicara dan otak bergeliga. Tetapi bijak pandai sahaja tidak menjamin seseorang ahi politik itu untuk tidak menjadi bijak auta dan berkata dusta.

YB adalah perancang Kajang Move. Kononnya ia penting untuk misi ke Putrajaya di samping menghalang kejatuhan Selangor daripada gerakan ultra Tun Dr Mahathir.

Tetapi hairannya, selepas 8 bulan, yang saya nampak hanyalah Tun Dr Mahathir dilantik menjadi Pengerusi Proton, bukannya Pengerusi Perhubungan Negeri BN Selangor.Tidak mungkin kerana pejabat Proton di Selangor maka YB berasa Tun Dr Mahathir cuba merampas Selangor.

Apapun pada forum malam semalam, YB berkata Kajang Move adalah untuk menggantikan TS Khalid kerana beliau disyaki mempunyai masalah integriti. Yang menggelikan hati saya adalah apabila YB berkata ‘what we heard was enough for us to initiate the Kajang Move without enough document on Tan Sr Khalid.’.

Adakah ini bermakna saya boleh mendesak YB daripada menjadi ahli parlimen Pandan walaupun saya tidak ada bukti kukuh tentang ‘cakap-cakap’ liar mengenai skandal YB dengan syarikat konsesi air SPLASH?

YB juga berkata sanggup kalah pilihanraya di Selangor demi prinsip. Bolehkah saya ingin mencadangkan agar YB- atas nama prinsip- lancarkan Segambut Move untuk desak DS Anwar Ibrahim yang buktinya lebih daripada 50 muka surat mengenai salah laku, krisis moral dan integritinya untuk berundur daripada menjadi ahli politik? Boleh? Atau tidak boleh kerana semua itu konspirasi?

Antara isu yang dibangkitkan YB adalah urusan jual beli tanah di antara kerajaan Negeri dengan pemaju Eco World. Ini sangat aneh memandangkan TS Khalid telah membekukan kelulusan pembangunan di 1,172 ekar tanah di Canal City selepas Tropicana menjual 308 ekar  daripada tanah yang dibeli daripada Selangor kepada Eco World untuk ‘easy money’.

Oleh itu, mengapa YB menyalahkan TS Khalid yang cuba mengajar pemaju hartanah tersebut? Bukankah apa yang beliau lakukan itu selari dengan prinsip integriti yang YB canangkan? Atau sebenarnya ada sesetengah ahli politik di belakang pemaju iini?

YB, saya faham yang jarak Selangor lebih dekat dengan Kemaman berbanding Pulau Pinang. Oleh itu mungkin YB telah terlepas pandang mengenai urusan jual beli tanah di bawah harga pasaran yang telah berlaku di Penang Waterfront dan Penang Turf Club oleh IJM Land dan Berjaya Land.

Pada masa yang sama pembinaan terowong bawah laut di Penang yang bernilai RM4.3 Biliion telah dijalankan tanpa tender terbuka dan akan menyebabkan rakyat Penang membayar tol. Bukankah ini bertentangan dengan apa yang YB perjuangkan mengenai pembinaan Kidex?

Mengapa prinsip YB tidak diserlahkan di negeri Penang dengan mendesak Lim Guan Eng berundur sebagai Ketua Menteri?

Bukan sahaja YB sudah kantoi menipu, tetapi YB juga bersikap hipokrit dan double standard. Sesungguhnya saya amat sedih kerana saya melihat YB adalah harapan rakyat Malaysia dan saya begitu kagum dengan prinsip YB.

Akhir kalam saya akhiri dengan serangkap pantun untuk YB:

Orangnya bijak, petah berkata-kata.
Bukan anak Selangor tapi orang Kemaman,
Langkah Kajang semuanya dusta,
Silap hari bulan, YB boleh kena tangan.

STAYING OR NOT, SELANGORIANS ARE REALLY SCREWED

1

As a Selangorian, what happens in Selangor is really disturbing. Even it is quite scary. The issue of Menteri Besar of Selangor can’t be taken lightly. In fact, it must be seen in the wider context and not just hovering around the question of whether Tan Sri Khalid will stay or not.

Selangorians must prepare for the worst. This is because the state will be leaderless and directionless for longer they can imagine. Most likely it will remain so until PRU14.

Let us analyse the situation further.

Firstly Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor is collapsing for the simple reason; they have no better candidate than Tan Sri Khalid to be the Menteri Besar. No doubt, this is the only reason why all the component parties can’t agree n Kajang Move.

Secondly, if TS Khalid remained as Menteri Besar, he will not be able to govern the state according to his wishes. Just imagine, some of his Exco Members, local councillors and supporters are against him and will likely to do anything to ensure the downfall of him.

Any policies proposed by TS Khalid will depend on the support from a component party (PAS) and the opposition party (UMNO) since his own party (PKR) and DAP are not behind him. Therefore, the policy cannot be implemented and things will remain the same, even it needed to be changed. What’s more, there is a real possibility of sabotage within his government.

Any attempt to ‘neutralize’ the anti-MB faction will be seen as undemocratic and will be exposed to the public. Infighting, indecisiveness, and instability will erode investor’s confidence. In the end, TS Khalid will become a lame duck Menteri Besar, just like any civil servants who wait for their retirement age to come. They are unlikely to be aggressive, visionary and just ‘play it safe’.

But does it mean that things will get better if the MB Selangor changed? Not necessarily. As a matter of fact, it may be worse.

If Pakatan Rakyat manages to replace TS Khalid, the new MB did not have the full support of all component parties. Not only the new MB needs to compromise in order to appease each party, practically speaking, the new MB will forever be exposed to power grabs just like what has happened to Tan Sri Khalid. It may be Azmin Ali- the MB Selangorians never have. It could be PAS or DAP- the party with the most seats. Or it may go back to TS Khali d again. Anything is possible. The point is, ‘what you give, you get back’.

The new MB will spend most of the time to pacify people who sulk and to fend off any political attacks and manouvres from political nemesis. If this is the case, when the new-MB will actually govern? This situation is like some GLC CEOs who work only to appease their political master so that their contract will be renewed. In the context of Selangor, the chairman is no other than the husband of the new MB. Nepotism much?

Apart from the mentioned possibility, the most pressing question is, can Dr Wan Azizah provide a radical approach in dealing with water restructuring exercise, the new highways issue and the greedy corporate tycoon in Selangor? With due respect to her, she had no experience in administration nor does she enjoys the reputation as a party president who ‘call the shots’. So is this the deal to Selangorians by offering the worse MB to lead the state?

Or is the new MB a mere puppet?

Pakatan Rakyat’s poor governance, nepotism and blatant disregard for the needs of the people have crossed the line. But Selangorians will still support them. They have no alternative. Despite all the problems, UMNO also can’t put forward anyone credible than the current warlords who would be acceptable to the Selangorians.

Even after the disastrous General Election, BN Selangor appoints the same politician who is responsible for the dismal performance of the coalition. The party machinery has failed to capitalise the MB saga to win back the trust of Selangorians. Now we heard that BN Selangor wanted Khalid Ibrahim to continue BN Selangor.

Maybe they are not interested to be in power. Or maybe for them the water fiasco, the public housing issue and the pothole problem in Selangor are acceptable. Maybe after some times being the opposition, they found that it is very much easier than to be the administrator.

BN Selangor seems to suffer from amnesia. They forgot under their administration the state recorded average growth of 7.2% for nearly 40 years compared to average 4.5% during Pakatan’s rule.

Therefore it is right to say whether TS Khalid will stay as MB or not, Selangorians are really screwed. The current MB, who according to the brilliant Rafizi Ramli, has set gold standard for administration will be replaced. His successor’s credential is questionable and they have no alternative to vote for.

It is that bad, to the extent that the politics in Selangor have to be dictated by non-Selangorians such as those from Permatang Pauh and Kemaman. Seriously, where have all the Selangor politicians gone?

Selangorians, you (we) are really screwed.

 

Ps: The Selangor state government is in the process of finalising the restructuring of water industry that will ensure water supply for the state.
