Budget losers

24 Oct 2011

SIBU: Rural students in Sarawak will have to spend RM300 on transportation charges just to claim the RM100 allocated to them under the Budget 2011.

At a Press conference on 23 October, Sarawak teachers’ Union president William Ghani Bina said it was not only inconvenient for the students to go to the town to collect the money but also costly for them to do so.

He said that spending RM300 to get the RM100 would defeat the purpose of giving them the money to buy books.

“It will be more meaningful for the RM100 to be given to the students’ respective schools to buy library books or computers as this will be more useful to them. If a town schools has 2,000 students, the money collected will be big enough for effective long term use,” he added.

William said that RM100 was not much today and it would be better for the government to consider giving the money to the schools to handle. – The Star.

Transportation is not a problem. Mr.FairviewBetong can request his prominent chief to arrange for helicopters to transport the students to get their aids.

Mr. FairviewBetong,

I think you are the right person to distribute the said cash aid to rural students. You may wish to request your prominent chief to arrange for helicopter to take you to rural areas. Let see whether you can do it. Talking too much is no use.

Dear all.

We in the beloved town of Betong does not encounter such "tiny winnie petty" problem of disbursement. Our road and telecommunication / transportation system is grade A1.

All we need to do is make a simple announcement through Waifm and make arrangement with Dewan Rentap. Job done.

Like it or not, still we all (WE ALL) have to say thank you to YAB Tan Sri Datuk Patinggi Alfred Jabu for his tireless efforts to upgrade our life standard to a level higher than you all. Thank you YAB Tan Sri Datuk Patinggi Alfred Jabu.

On the same note, we Betongites are "ashamed" and felt rediculed by the mention sum. We are so used to receiving 100 times better perks than just the RM500 so to say. E#nvy us if you wish but that is a fact. Thank you YAB Tan Sri Datuk Patinggi Alfred Jabu.

Good luck to you all.

Loves, Fairview Betong

We in Betong are lucky lot, projects keep on coming sometimes projects came without requesting for them, thanks to our YBS especially Dato Sri Douglas Uggah and YB Robert Lawson Chuat (I'm under ADUN N.32) now he is the Assistant Minister of Welfare am sure more projects to come. Some YBs are looking after their cronies and Apple polishers
