Tackle economy, Penang told reads the headlines in an English daily while the sub-heading reads Groups want government to stop politicking and deal with pressing issues.
This is the state government that Penangites have today. The state leaders, especially Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, is busy politicking and digging the past mistakes of the previous state government.
He has failed to live up to the expectations of the rakyat and fulfill his election promises.
Based on what I observed, Lim had gone to the extent of becoming a beggar when he constantly beg for money from the federal government to help boost Penang economy.
The latest was when he confidently said that the federal government would help Penang inject RM30bil to put the state’s economy back on track following the current economic crisis.
RM30bil? Lim must be joking and dreaming.
Why should the federal government waste that much money for Lim when there are many other states ruled by Barisan Nasional that need the fund.
What happen to his 2008 election manifesto? He was overwhelmingly confident when he said the DAP do not need the help from the federal government when he appealed for votes during his election campaign.
He and his father condemned the federal government for wasting money on mega projects. But Lim is singing a different tune now when he helms the state. He begs the federal government to fund mega projects which he had vehemently opposed when he was outside the state government.
The projects include the RM4.3bil Second Link Project, the RM1.02bil Penang Outer Ring Road project and the LRT plan for Penang.
Actually, Lim is a confused man now. He doesn’t know how to generate income for Penang and maintain the economic competitiveness of the state. Bear in mind that Penang is the Silicon Valley of the country.
So, Lim has no choice but to go back to Barisan Nasional’s drawing board and copies the projects that had been drawn up and planned by the previous state government.
He will then claim that the projects are implemented during his time. But where is Lim going to get the money for the projects? He can keep on dreaming.
This is the CAT philosophy promoted by Lim in his state administrative. A lazy CAT that likes to copy.
