I don't know whether to laugh or get so embarrassed with BN's tactics.
Latest saga - on the car issue (Trgn buying MBenz for their Co-Execs)
KUALA TERENGGANU: The state government has defended the purchase of 14 Mercedes E200 Kompressor cars at RM3.43mil for the use of its state executive councillors and senior officials.
Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said said the state government had planned to purchase the cars for a long time now to replace its Proton Perdana V6 Executive fleet in a move to cut cost.
“Please understand that the Proton Perdanas go through continuous long-distance journeys. It’s costing us a lot of money due to high cost of maintenance.
“We are not saying that the national car is not good but in reality we are coughing up more money for maintaining the Proton Perdanas, particularly the gear boxes,” he said.
Ahmad cited the example of the Proton Perdana of state Commerce, Industry and Environment committee chairman Toh Chin Yaw, which has twice undergone expensive repairs costing RM50,000 within 36 months.
“In the long run, Mercedes cars are cheaper to maintain and could also save us fuel costs.
“This is the state’s long-term plan – we are farsighted. The cars could also fetch a high market price, when sold as second-hand cars.
“We studied all angles before deciding to buy the Mercedes E200 cars,” he added
Yes and that's why they need MBenz..but how about the poor people in Terengganu?? Why spent so much money on cars when they can on infra-based projects (not that it would not start another BN - based corruption cycle somewhere!!)
They have the cheek to say all these and more!!!! You mean to say they can't buy lets say a Honda or Toyota (all within RM130k) instead of spending something like RM300k on 1 car! Lets do simple maths ok...14 cars multiply RM150k equals RM2.1mil..wah that can go fund a school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No No No No No No ..cannot must have Merc if not maruah jatuh...blah blah!!!
JOKERS to the 1st Degree!!!
Now BN you have never learnt and will ever learn from the mistakes you keep doing over and over again!
Sad...your rakyats are never your priority..we take the back seats compared to cushioning 'your-kind' la!
