The Political Cost of PKFZ Transparency

A man who is at the peak of his career as Minister and President of the largest Chinese based organization in Malaysia, will he stir the hornet's nest by going transparent and open if he knows that the bees will sting him in the end which might spell the end of his career ?

Only a senile man will do so and definitely not the President of MCA. Read this good article : Tough times call for tough measures

Since the very beginning, the Malaysian Chinese Association President Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat held on firmly to his pledge that the Ministry of Transport will come clean, open and transparent in the case of PKA - PKFZ project.

Never once was anything hidden or shrouded in secrecy. Never once was there any attempts to sweep the case under the carpet. Never once was there any procedures to seal and close the case under the Official Secrets Act.

In fact, some of the following chronological news headlines which carry the efforts of MCA President and his Ministry officials will show to the public who is walking the talk.

It is indeed a big political cost. But MCA shall persevere and march ahead with Barisan Nasional.

MCA president: Duo trying to divert people’s attention from issue
“If indeed I have received pecuniary and financial benefits for myself or the party, there will be more reasons for me to protect the interests of the givers, as opposed to proceeding to expose their misdeeds.

add
What about those who condemn the one who dared to speak up while hugging and remaining quiet on the ones who who are involved ? like for eg the barking mad dog of Asia , the mutant , the alien from the Dirty Arse Planet ?
What about the one above who posts under chapTohSi , ruyom , reek TiuNyaSing , NiaMaFulat , WMW ?

Bro

Ong Gua Tak Kut had no choice.

Not only that, it is downright dishonest of him to claim that he is championing transparency. This is mega BS.

The entire fraud was exposed by blogger Capt Yusof aka Ancient Mariner, Nades of the Sun and Lim Kit Siang of DAP.

Only then did OGTK moves his butt as otw, it would have implicated the whole of UMNO and MIC.

Those are the facts.

Let no one spin it and make it appear as though OGTK is some knight in shining armour. And his persecution of CSL is adequate proof that this man is hoping to distract his own dwindling popularity by diverting the atttention of M'sians elsewhere.

No one implied that it was OTK who exposed the fraud . Only suckers like you do . OTK dared to go all the way to clean up what is considered a dirty issue .
Do you think you dare do what he did ?if you were the MT ? I think you would be enjoying bonuses by the courtesy of Tiong King Sing .
And by the way please don't mention that alien mutant father of yours . He's well known to all of us as the mad man of Asia or barking mad dog of Malaysia .
You are already in his pack of barking mad dogs , nothing much to do except pollute all the blogs with your dog poo .
And btw donplaypukis , its better to do cunnilingus

Your profile says you are an accountant , but the way you post your comments on OTK , you are nothing more than a nincompoop .

donplaypuks® said...

The scumbags are here with nothing else in their pathetic armoury but personal attacks.

Donplaypukis, OGTK HAD NO CHOICE but to investigate or resign AFTER PKFZ was exposed by 3rd parties. It's not as though he went into it willingly. Live with that!

Now he's trying to distract us with vendetta against CSL and he's been exposed by Tiong. So, he's no angel. You ever heard of LKS, Karpal or LGE accused of corruption?

As for cunnilingus, I'm sure you know all about it coz your other equipment doesn't work. You HAVE NO CHOICE, poor limp man. Or like Aisehman says 'winners get to f...k the prom queen' while limp dicked losers like you only know how to use your sharp tongue?

dap punk, if you have nothing original or sensible to say, it would be better for you to wallow in your own poop!
