BN To Hit Out At Pakatan’s Unfulfilled Promises

(Bernama) – SHAH ALAM — Selangor Barisan Nasional (BN) will hit out at the unfulfilled promises of the Pakatan government which has administered Selangor for more than three years in its debate at the State Legislative Assembly Meeting today, said Opposition leader, Mohamad Satim Diman.

He said BN as the opposition in Selangor would expose various issues as well as missappropriations in the Pakatan administration formed by PAS, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and DAP after having led the state administration since March 8, 2008.

The Pakatan government had failed to fulfil its promises made in its manifesto during the 12th General Election among which were to create a competent, responsible, transparent, efficient, honest, trustworthy and high integrity administration, he told a media conference, here on Tuesday.

Mohamad Satim said the state government had not met its promise to reduce assessment by 20 per cent for residential houses till today.

“Local authority assessment is one of the major issues as 60 per cent of the community in Selangor are in urban areas and why was the the rate not reduced at the local authority level,” he said.

Mohamad Satim said there were controversies in the management of the Selangor State Development Corporation’s (PKNS) and yet to date, the audit report on PKNS operation had not been released.

Touching on the intention of DAP to reduce the size of the civil service to cut down on government expenditure, Mohamad Satim said he would challenge the DAP with PAS and PKR to start reducing the number of civil servants in states administered by the opposition such as Kelantan, Kedah, Selangor and Penang.

On transparency, he said the Selangor State Legislative Assembly had yet to receive the complete report of Selangor Islamic Religious Department against the Damansara Utama Methodist Church which sparked a controversy in August.
