Lulu Truly Disgusted With The BN For Witholding What Is Due To Penang

Met at a BN function later, Arif Shah cited the allocation - where the five schools will get RM200,000 each - as an example why the voters should back the ruling coalition.
"The Permatang Pauh people will benefit, you can see it happen (such as this allocation)," he told reporters after the launch of the BN Youth election machinery in Permatang Pasir.
Arif Shah, who is also the Seberang Jaya state assemblyperson, appealed to voters to give him a chance as he said he will then be able to have more allocations to develop the constituency.
"Although I am the Seberang Jaya state assemblyperson but in the state government, I am the opposition. I don’t have the allocation.

Malaysiakini - Goodies roll in, RM1 mil for Chinese schools

It is blatantly obvious why Penang is not getting any allocation.
Arif Shah, being from UMNO, of all people should know that allocation is controlled at Federal level.
The PM and the Second Finance Minister, both Penang MPs, would rather withold the allocation from the people than to allow the Opposition-led Penang state government decide how to spend the money.

Voters in Pematang Pauh need to understand that even though these next 10 days they're going to be given and promised all kinds of things [like how Arif Shah says he can get more allocation to develop the constituency], but at the end of the day, even IF Arif Shah wins, Pematang Pauh is going to get no better than the voters in Kepala Batas and Tasek Gelugor.
Voters in Pematang Pauh should just take what Amir Shah and gang are offering and cast their votes independant of that lest their offering is misconstrued as a bribe.

maklum-lah ya....

Don't you think we should have more by-elections then? Everytime they have one, depending on ratio of Malay/Chinese /Indians in the constituency, the people benefit from government allocations that seem to fall down from the sky like magic. The general elections are not that useful in that sense.

So I guess if a one way tolook at it is if an MP or ADUN really cares for his or her constituency, he or she will resign and cause a by-election. Then the people benefit!..Hey, got sense in that logic ah?
