I heard from a Gerakan leader in Kedah that the State has not called off the 50 % Bumiputera in housing development (for swap Malay Reserve land) - an increase from 30%.
He has written it in his blog article here - Pakatan Rakyat, One Malaysia and Kedah Housing Policy.
Why didnt Anwar Ibrahim or Lim Kit Siang take a drive down to Kedah and talk to Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak there?
Kedah initially announced that they will revert to the 30% quota housing policy in late 2008. In Feb 09, MB Kedah then slammed Tan Keng Liang for his press statement and reverted back to the 50% quota housing policy.
I have a lot of respect for the Malay reserve land because after all, this was once Tanah Melayu before the formation of Malaysia.
But I don't think this policy is in line with the ideologies of Anwar Ibrahim and Lim Kit Siang. Moreover, freehold lands have been developed and the remaining land left to build on is the Malay reserve land.
So does the 30 % quota policy apply as a blanket rule or not ? Are the Pakatan leaders People First Performance Now or are they Politics First Putrajaya Now ?
The Bumiputera land quota has been relaxed in Perak - under Datuk Seri Mohd Tajol Rosli Ghazali and the current MB Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir.
Cheers to you, Dr Zambry. In the words of Dr Zambry,
"We don't want to live in a polarised world, but in the context of practicality, we have to discuss and study such policies."
Also, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak recently announced the financial sector liberalisation. Published HERE.
1 Malaysia is in Barisan Nasional. Minority Malaysia in Pakatan.
After Aminah Tape and A Thiruvenggadam's expose HERE and HERE, where is the voice of the vocal Teresa Kok, Lim Kit Siang, Teng Chang Khim and Anwar Ibrahim ?
How long will the "elegant silence" of Pakatan leaders on their own mess and the roar on Barisan Nasional's matters continue?
