MP CHIDES SUPP KUCHING FOR PETITION ON EXEMPTION OF GST

Posted: 12 Oct 2015 09:49 PM PDT

KUCHING: Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chieng Jen has ridiculed SUPP Kuching's campaign to gather 500,000 signatures to request exemption of Goods and Services Tax (GST) for Sarawak.

The Kota Sentosa assemblyman and state DAP chairman said the SUPP branch ought to make a clear stand whether action should be taken against it very MP who had voted in favour of GST, before going around asking people for their signatures.


"I was shocked when I read the papers today (yesterday) that SUPP Kuching is launching a signature campaign to request for exemption of GST for Sarawak. I think before they even ask people to sign, they should check the parliamentary record as I am certain their MP Richard Riot, who is also a minister in the federal cabinet, agreed and voted for GST.

"The GST Bill was passed in 2013 after the general election. All the opposition MPs were against it, but BN (Barisan Nasional) MPs including Sarawakian MPs all voted for it. Had the MPs from Sarawak voted against GST Bill, it would not be passed because they would not have gotten more than 51 per cent of the lower house.

"Now that SUPP wants to launch a full campaign on this, the first thing they should do is to take action against Richard Riot as well as Senator Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hian for voting for GST. We do not want a scenario whereby your MP and Senator supported the Bill in Parliament when you try to be hero outside," he told reporters outside Wisma Bapa Malaysia in Petra Jaya here yesterday.

Chong described the move to gather signatures as 'ridiculous' and said SUPP Kuching was trying to fool the people on the matter.

"It is a very laughable move on their part. Outside, you say you're against it, but your MP in Parliament voted for it, supported it. This is what we call political cheat."

He also wondered whether the branch had received blessings from its partners in Sarawak BN.
"Ask them to make a stand first before getting signatures," he said, adding there was no point in collecting signatures if after that, Sarawak BN ordered the branch or the party not to go against the policy.

Chong pointed out that SUPP Kuching was bound by its party and BN discipline and it should therefore, put its house in order before anything else.

"There is no question about the people against GST, and the people of Kuching have spoken through DAP — we oppose. That is already very clear. What are you (SUPP Kuching) trying to do? Sandiwara! (Theatrical drama)."

At a press conference on Sunday, chairperson Datuk Lily Yong said SUPP Kuching would launch a signature campaign today to collect as many as 500,000 signatures to push for GST exemption for Sarawak.

She said 'everybody is suffering' since the implementation of GST in April this year, based on the feedback the branch had gathered, which had also prompted her to assert: "Sarawak is not ready for GST."

DAP Sibu reps submit ‘road’ proposal to CM’s Office

KUCHING: Three DAP elected representatives from Sibu submitted their proposal for a Sibu Outer Ring Road to the special admin officer of the Chief Minister's Office, Azmi Bujang, yesterday.
Pelawan David Wong (Pelawan), Dudong assemblyman Yap Hoi Liong and Sibu MP Oscar Ling, who were accompanied by state DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen, had wanted to submit the proposal to the chief minister but they did not get to see Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem as they did not make an appointment to see him.
They were instead met by Azmi outside the security booth at Wisma Bapa Malaysia. Azmi acknowledged receipt of the proposal.
The proposal, said David, was to build three new roads and upgrade an existing road in Sibu for about RM70 million.
"One of them is at the Jalan Wong King Huo roundabout, connecting to JPJ, which is about 4.5km. There will be a bypass in the middle. We estimate it cost about RM30 million. Another one is connecting a residential area to another by constructing a bridge across Sungai Merah. That would cost around RM10 million.
"Another one is Teku Road to Sibu Golf Club area. A lot of those in Kampung Dato and Kampung Nangka will be relocated to this golf club area, so that road would be around 7km, costing some RM20 million," he told reporters after handing over the proposal to Azmi.
David opined that one of the oldest roads in Sibu – Jalan Oya – needed upgrading, too. The stretch from SMK St. Elizabeth to the traffic junction, he said, needed to be upgraded to a dual carriageway. That would cost about RM10 million.
He alleged there had been no new roads built in Sibu in the last two years, which led to massive traffic congestions during peak hours.
"What we are proposing is something good for the people of Sarawak, especially Sibu, and should be good for our chief minister and the state government."
He said Bawang Assan assemblyman Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh, who is also Second Finance Minister and Minister of Local Government and Community Development, had announced last March his proposal to build two roads in Sibu at a cost of RM106 million.
David claimed Soon Koh's proposal for the new road from Jalan Wong King Huo to JPJ would cost RM35 million while the other new road, which would connect directly from Sungai Merah to the golf club area, would cost RM71 million.
"His (Soon Koh) two roads cost RM106 million, but the ones we are proposing totalled only RM70 million."
He said their proposal also included urging the state government to source for 500 acres of state or NCR land along Teku Road for low-cost housing development.
"There is a lot of 'un-surveyed' land there. If we can have that new ring road, we will have more 'un-surveyed' land coming up. The state government can acquire and allocate them for low-cost housing projects, which would be good for Sibu people.
"I hope Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh does not just carry the name of Second Finance Minister but cannot do anything (with it). He should have some authority, or at least he should support our proposal. Whatever is good for Sibu … we should put politics aside."
To a question, David said they did not make the appointment because "what we want is to submit this proposal to his office and make sure that he receives it."
"I do not think the chief minister knows the conditions of Sibu like myself and my colleagues. So, he will need people from JKR (Public Works Department) and Land and Survey Department (LSD) and other authorities to source for the information that he needs."
He said the DAP had approached LSD Sibu for the information necessary to draft the proposal, stressing: "We do not just pluck the figures from the air. What we propose is credible and workable, for as long as it is through open tender."

火箭呈预算案建议书 7000万改善巫交通

Posted: 12 Oct 2015 06:00 PM PDT


 
行动党多名国州议员欲进入国父大厦呈交砂州财政预算案建议书,但不获保安批准进入该大厦内。左起为砂行动党主席兼哥打圣淘沙区州议员张健仁、都东区州议员叶海量、柏拉旺区州议员黄培根及诗巫区国会议员林财耀。

(本报古晋12日讯)砂行动党于今日往古晋国父大厦向首长提呈财政预算案建议书。该党希望砂州政府在来临11月召开的州立法议会中,拨出一笔为数7000万令吉的款项,以改善诗巫多年来的交通道路系统。
在该建议中,行动党提出4项道路扩建和开拓的意见,希望可改善诗巫交通道路系统,以解决诗巫多年来的交通及发展瓶颈。
该建议书是于今日由柏拉旺区州议员黄培根交予首长署特别行政官员阿兹米布章。而陪同出席的有哥打圣淘沙区州议员张健仁、诗巫区国会议员林财耀及都东区州议员叶海量。
车多瘫痪市区
也是行动党砂州委员会副主席的黄培根表示,诗巫已有多年没有发展新道路了。该市目前所拥有的道路衔接导致许多车辆必须进入市区后,才能分流出去。同时,诗巫的车辆数目又不断增加,特别是高峰时段,诗巫的交通简直陷入瘫痪。
因此他指出,该党认为诗巫应建设外围道路,让没有必要进入市区的车辆,可以通过外围的道路抵达目的地。
同时,他也提到,在该党所提出的新外围大道计划中,其中有一条开辟道路计划是与高级部长拿督斯里黄顺舸于今年3月份在媒体上公布的一条大道计划相同,即由阿曼路交通圈通往陆路交通局附近的交通圈。
应建外围道路
然而他指出,该党所提出的新4条外围大道兴建是征求过有关领域专人的意见,以及根据实际情况才结出此计划。
他直言,一旦四条外围大道计划被落实,诗巫的交通联络网将更加便利及通畅,而诗巫的发展也将连带蓬勃起来。
"我们所建议的诗巫外围道路建设计划费用只需要7000万令吉,是拿督斯里黄顺舸所提出的1亿600万令吉的三份二。"
他说,砂州财政预算每年总计50亿令吉,7000万令吉只不过占了其中的1.5%款项数目。
黄培根是于今日提呈其建议后,向媒体如是表示。
发展落后沐胶
与此同时,行动党都东区州议员叶海量也表示,过去的发展中,诗巫已慢民都鲁、美里许多,甚至于沐胶,而且在过去的10年中,除了治水计划外,并没有其他的大工程在开拓。
他披露,诗巫车辆数目以每年6000辆下增加,与美里是同等级。
"如果首长真的想发展中区,我们希望首长能即刻批准行动党这项建议,而不是采取不公平的发展方式。在民都鲁发展局一年可以拨款7000万,而诗巫市议会只有350万,这是远远落后不足够的,这对于中区的纳税人是不公平的。"
他也说道,身为巴旺阿山人民代议士的拿督斯里黄顺舸,应确保这建议被接纳,因他也是诗巫人民的一分子。
黄培根一等人是于今日约10时30分抵达国父大厦,欲将建议书呈交予砂首长阿迪南,然而却不获保安批准。经谈判后,最后是由首长署特别行政官员阿兹米布章到保安关口接收该建议书。
