Muhammad hits out at Pakatan - The Star

KUALA LUMPUR: May 10, 2008

Selangor Barisan Nasional chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib yesterday, with a tinge of sarcasm, congratulated the Pakatan Rakyat-led state government for a job well done.

"I heartily congratulate the state government of Selangor, because after less than two months in power, it has succeeded in openly lying to the people who voted for it," he said in his blog yesterday.

Muhammad joined Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in chastising the Selangor government for not living up to PR's pre-election promises of lower taxes and free education.

The state government recently said it would be unable to deliver its promise of a 20 per cent and 10 per cent reduction in assessment taxes and commercial property taxes respectively this year.

Muhammad said it was irresponsible to make a promise and then retract it.

"Some might even construe it as a breach of trust, an abuse of goodwill, because a lot of people might have voted for the opposition based on that promise," he said, adding that Barisan Nasional always made promises based on its ability to deliver them.

Maybe it cant be implemented this year does not means it wont happen.
There are other ways to make up .
Alternative ideas that may be beneficial to the people .
PR already planned for reduction or free X gallons of tap water to household .

Other examples to follow might be , free WIFI to certain areas , using RELA members to guard road junctions in major town or crime prone areas ,reduces public parking rates , revamps all state sgencies to serves the public within 15 minutes of waiting time , proposal to set up night courts or extended hours courts ( proposal for weekend public services already in planning stages ).
Approval for large scale bazaars to make Selangor tourist friendly . Similar to the "Jak Tu Jak "found in Bangkok.

Cant fulfill one thing not meaning it failed , just requires more time .
As most of datas are corrupted and files missing when the former government left in a huff or puff .
