Huge instant “noodle” projects for Batang Ai?

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak made it very clear that it will do away with the practice of announcing “instant noodle” projects during election times (Ref: http://www.bernama.com/bernama/v5/newsindex.php?id=396226)

Instead, he said, development programmes and projects would be planned in a holistic manner and implemented based on the people’s needs. This “instant noodle” approach where we see tractors coming in during elections will be done away with.

On the comments made by the Deputy Prime Minister, the people are divided over this approach. While the Opposition describes this type of instant projects during election times as a form of corruption and abuse of power, the government says it is their duty to give projects to the people.

For Batang Ai by-election, it is perhaps good that such instant projects continue to be given to the people as they are 45 years behind West Malaysia. If it is possible, every minister should come to campaign at Batang Ai so that each one of the minister brings his own “instant noodle” projects.

For example, Deputy Chief Minister Alfred Jabu anak Numpang who is also the infrastructure development minister as well as rural development minister should ready his “instant noodle” projects such as roads, electricity, clean water supply to be given to the people of Batang Ai.

He should not talk too much about the success of other’s ministry like the Ministry of Land Development, of which SALCRA is one of them. Although he may be chairman of SALCRA board of directors, James Masing is the boss.

The fact that Jabu does not speak much about projects under his ministries seems to project that he has not done much; his Rural Growth Centres (RGCs) through out Sarawak have failed to generate the desired objectives; the State roads which are under his ministry are full of “lobangs” here and “lobangs” there. And the Penan welfare programme seems to go no where.

Even in his Layar constituency, we often hear of people’s complaints against Jabu’s “instant noodle” projects when tractors came during election times. After the elections were over, tractors and bulldozers were withdrawn leaving the roads uncompleted; the construction would begin again come next election.

As Najib mentioned that although the BN would not practise the “instant noodle” projects any more, the voters have also to be wary as the government has other means of giving another version of “instant noddles” (a.k.a. angpaus).

We have heard that a sum of RM20 million is ready for such purpose and what the BN needs is only 4,000 voters to win the Batang Ai by-election. It is up to the voters of Batang Ai: if they play smart, they take the money and vote for the Opposition candidate. And if they are stupid and “takut” of “tulah” then they will succumb to the temptation. Like the Eve of the Garden of Eden, they will pay for their “sins”. – The Broken Shield

This 'instant noodle' hangouts have been going on for far too long and it's the main cause of BN public relations disaster.You can see how stupid umno/BN is and only till now do they realise that this is absolutely bullshit that have been used to cheat the rakyat.
And today,sarawak is following what was umno's failure,giving out 'instant noodle' again to bluff the people of Batang Ai.If Bn think that the people of Batang Ai haven't grown up,then they are dead wrong.The last election saw BN winning by only a small margin shows that the people of Batang Ai are indeed waking up for they have been cheated for far too long.Can any dayak leader put their hands up and tell the people of Batang Ai that BN have been helping or making lives in Batang Ai a better one.May be I see nothing is been done at all since the white rajah times or is it that I'm deaf and blind.
Still I say it's time BN MUST be shown the door and let the people of Batang Ai chart their own course .BN will surely face defeat and this defeat will surely be the end of BN grip to power and the beginning of PR entry into sarawak.Let make it happen becos we have enough of all those crap that BN dump on us.We must be united in our mind to rid this dictator that have been clinging to our back .This mugabe style of gov't must end and let us all start with a new beginning.Yes,we can!

Mr.Anonymous 16th March, 09 ll.l5 am,

Your spelling, grammar and pronunciation in Iban tells that you are not an Iban. Am I correct?

For your information, Iban in Sarawak, youngs and old, not in BN, love PKR and will die with PKR.
