SHAH ALAM 7 APRIL: Beberapa loji rawatan air (LRA) yang menggunakan sumber air mentah dari Sungai Selangor telah dan sedang meningkatkan pengeluaran air terawat masing-masing berikutan penambahan aliran air sungai ekoran hujan beberapa hari lepas.

“Bekalan air tambahan telah disalurkan SYABAS ke kawasan terlibat dengan catuan, namun situasi ini bersifat sementara.
PETALING JAYA: We are too dependent on rain water for our daily consumption, said former Selangor exco Dr Xavier Jeyakumar today.

He was responding to the National Water Services Commission (SPAN) decision to extend the water rationing period to April 30 as the water levels in Selangor dams were insufficient to revoke the rationing exercise.

“We cannot rely on rain water supply alone for our consumption. Other alternatives must be considered,” said Jeyakumar.
ADUN Seri Andalas Dr Xavier Jeyakumar mahu kerajaan Selangor bawah Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim bertanggungjawab mengenai isu penjualan tanah di Kuala Langat kepada syarikat Tropicana yang mungkin menyebabkan kerugian jutaan ringgit kepada kerajaan negeri.

Beliau yang juga bekas exco negeri mencadangkan pertikaian penjualan itu dibawa ke Jawatankuasa Pilihan Khas Mengenai Keupayaan, Kebertanggungjawaban dan Ketelusan Selangor (Selcat) bagi mengenalpasti kelemahan perjanjian “berat sebelah” itu.

Xavier  turut mempersoalkan mengapa perjanjian penjualan tanah April tahun lalu itu dibuat ketika ahli exco belum mengangkat sumpah sejurus sebelum pilihan raya umum ke-13.
The ARTICLE by the Star “Khalid Caught off guard”  (March 29, 2014) indicated that Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim has erred in his call as the deal that the state had entered into with Tropicana Corp Bhd  exactly one year ago has returned to bite the back of the state government.

It was reported in several business dailies that under the deal, Tropicana acquired 1,172 acres from the state for RM1.3 billion to be paid over 20 years as the land is being developed. Under payment  terms, Tropicana had to fork out RM50 million as deposit and make two advance payments over a period of six months. The remaining is to be paid with interest over various schedules stretching over 18 years. However, since then Tropicana has sold out a portion of the land to Eco World Development Group Bhd for a cash payment of RM470.57 million.

This has now prompted Khalid on behalf of the state government to seek for an accelerated payment of RM844.2 million, as it is the opinion that it is the current value of the land.

However, neither does the agreement  restrict Tropicana from disposing a portion of the land to accelerate payment nor does it have to accelerate it payment to the state government as stated by the deal.

With the state government wanting the money back desperately and realising that the sale was a bad move, the Selangor state government, via Menteri Besar Selangor Inc, has made a fresh offer to Tropicana for the sale of the 1,297 acres of “Canal City” land on Friday.

This offer whereby Tropicana only needs to pay the net present value of RM844.3 million this time around compared with RM1.3 billion previously, which was supposed to be payable within 20 years.

Given the terms of the new deal which in my opinion heavily favours Tropicana and gives the perception that Selangor government could potentially lose millions of ringgit, the issue in contention would be how was the deal allowed to go through in the first place? How could the Menteri Besar allow any deal involving the state government to be signed with any party during the time when the state had a caretaker government in administration?  Who had signed the deal if it was not Khalid?

The state government should look into the matter seriously as it involves the rakyat’s money. The Pakatan-Rakyat government has always been a proponent of competency, accountability and transparency since it was elected to power since 2008. If necessary a Selcat hearing should be held in the nearest time soon to identify those responsible for the agreement.

Hujan di kawasan Lembah Klang sejak 16 Mac lalu masih gagal meningkatkan jumlah paras air di empangan utama bagi membekalkan air mentah ke loji rawatan air sekitar Selangor, Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya.
   
Menurut kenyataan Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Air Negara (SPAN), paras air di semua empangan negeri Selangor terus menyusut berikutan hujan yang sedikit sejak dua bulan lepas berbanding tahun sebelumnya selain peningkatan pengeluaran air terawat.
   
Tujuh empangan, termasuk yang membabitkan Sungai Selangor, kini mencatat bacaan meter 190.00 sehingga semalam berbanding 206.60 pada Januari.  
KUCHING: Balingian constituency which has seen only former chief minister Taib Mahmud as their assemblyman since 2001 go to polls this morning to chose a new representative.

Taib, who resigned as CM on Feb 28, also vacated  his state seat to take on the post of governor.

His incumbency is being defended by former Dalat district officer Yussibnosh Balo, 48.  Rivalling him is PKR’s Abdul Jalil Bujang, a 55-year-old businessman from Bintulu.

Barisan Nasional is fervently hoping for a big voter turnout today.  The challenge among others is the wet weather which is predicted to continue today.
Susulan pendedahan bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tun Musa Hitam, keluarga dan mangsa tragedi  Memali melahirkan rasa kesal mereka dengan penggelapan berita selama ini lalu membuat kesimpulan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad mungkin adalah dalang sebenar peristiwa ini dan Musa hanya kambing hitamnya.

Salah seorang mangsa, Yusof Che Mid dalam kenyataannya kepada The Malaysian Insider berkata, "Kalau begitu, bagi saya Dr Mahathir mastermind dalam kes ini."

"(Tun) Musa hanya kambing hitam sahajalah kalau begitu," kata Yusof kepada The Malaysian Insider ketika dihubungi di rumahnya di Baling.
Pendedahan bekas timbalan perdana menteri Tun Musa Hitam berhubung keberadaan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad di Malaysia semasa peristiwa Memali dan bukan di China seperti dipercayai selama lebih 30 tahun menunjukkan wajah sebenar ‎bekas perdana menteri itu, kata ahli Parlimen Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam, Khalid Samad ‎berkata Dr Mahathir sanggup menjadikan Musa sebagai mangsa untuk dipersalahkan sedangkan bekas perdana menteri itu berada di Malaysia.

"Ia menunjukkan sikap dan perwatakan Dr Mahathir dalam soal Memali sanggup memangsakan timbalannya dan itulah jenis manusia yang masih disanjung‎ ramai.
PETALING JAYA 28 MAC: Tindakan kerajaan negeri Sarawak menghalang beberapa pimpinan KEADILAN memasuki negeri itu merupakan tindakan terdesak menjelang Pilihan Raya Kecil DUN Balingian, kata ketua Wanita KEADILAN, Zuraida Kamaruddin.

“Ini satu tindakan terdesak BN di Sarawak kerana mereka takut kepada pemimpin PKR untuk berkempen dan mengekang rakyat bergerak secara bebas dalam negara demokrasi.

“Ini hak kita. Mengapa mereka menafikan hak ini? Mereka menggunakan kuasa negeri yang tidak bertempat. Perbuatan ini memberi kesan kepada keputusan pilihan raya nanti,” katanya pada satu sidang media di Ibu Pejabat KEADILAN di Petaling Jaya hari ini.
