Please get your act right! In the morning , YB Datuk Ir Md Zin announced that toll rates will be hiked up. In the afternoon, YAB Pak Lah says that he wants the toll rates to remain. He said that although the decision was made two or three weeks ago in the cabinet meeting, he has had a change of heart about the rates because of the economic scenario presently.
First and foremost, with due respect, even if Pak Lah has had a change of heart, he should have informed the Works Minister early before the announcement was made. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud and greatly appreciate Pak Lah’s change of heart. This shows that Pak Lah has the rakyat’s well being in his heart, but I just wish he had managed the whole issue better. The minute that Pak Lah felt the hike was not right, even after cabinet had made the decision, he should have called Ir Md Zin to re-table it in the following cabinet meeting.
Now it is like Pak Lah and Ir Md Zin do not communicate with each other. That is bad. But whatever be the case, I thank you Pak Lah and the entire cabinet in advance for reviewing this announcement. The hike is really at a bad timing. It shows that for whatever faults there are on the process arriving to the final decision, the Cabinet members will always have the Rakyat’s well being in their hearts.
