Chor: Several technical issues need to be reviewed
ALOR SETAR: Technical glitches have delayed the enforcement of the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleanliness Act 2007, which was initially due to be implemented next month.
Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung said the delay was to allow an in-depth study of several technical aspects before the Act was to be enforced.
“The Act was tabled before the Cabinet recently and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, after listening to the enforcement aspects, felt that there were one or two technical issues that needed to be reviewed,” he said ………
ANOTHER MOCKERY, she fumes……..
These people are very good at managing by excuses.... and not managing for results. It looks like the PM’s theme of 1 Malaysia, People First, Perfomance Now doesn’t sink in doing their work. It is scary to even think, if a law need to be passed and yet the implementation and worst, repercussion (so called technical) has not been fully thought out. It can mean 2 things,:
(1) the Consultant ( Kue Low) that the Ministry fully depends are not effective or are more interested in having their relevance being there ( off course with the blessing of relevance tuan pegawai who is so worried about position and pencen, or who are already on pension, now its Pay Off time at the cost of the public) until they MAMPUS, (how I wish the government are transparent in telling how much they are paying these so called consultants), and
(2) my friend thought the Act was bulldozed through during the time by the Ah Keow Minister (for reasons well known to a lot of people – 1 + 1 equals one for you and one for me) so no one must question. Now, we all can see the result. Don’t be ashame Mr. Authroity, what has been done has been done, but since it has yet to be implemented, better take time to think through and implement what is best for 1 Malaysia, People First, Performance Now ( Malaysian are already matured by now if they think that all this are not known to people.
Another friend voiced out his concern that, with this so called “ the period to correct technical glitches” , all this give rise to “kawanlonies” to quicky grab whatever projects they could ( of course through the comrades in the power that be) in the name of technologically advance company ( in actual fact without the relevant track record ) but being backed up by the KONSULTANS ) while things are grey, so much so by the time the Act is in being implemented and, the PEMUTIHAN is now complemented, and everybody lives happily ever after.
One other friend also was curious, and asked why with so many independent reports provided by third parties (some sponsored by UN and at times by our government), why don’t they go along with the recommendations, rather they (KONSULTANS) will tell our pegawai what to do (according to their plans). I think its high time, those reports should be made available for public to comment rather than hiding in the closet. Post it into the virtual library. Then at least the public can see that they WALK THE TALK, and NOT TALK THE C_ _K.
