MB S'gor: Sesuaikan agenda PAS bersama Pakatan

Reactions: 
PAS boleh menyesuaikan agenda Islamnya dalam kerjasama bersama Pakatan Rakyat seperti DAP berbuat demikian, kata Menteri Besar Selangor Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

"Kita telah terima parti PAS. Saya pernah jadi setiausaha agung PKR. Kita telah terima parti PAS dan DAP sebagai rakan kita dalam politik.

"Kita terima hakikat bahawa PAS memperjuangkan pembangunan Islam, dan (hakikat) ini kita dapat sesuaikan dengan pembangunan negeri kita.

"Rakan kita dalam DAP (pula) memperjuangkan rakyat keseluruhannya. Dan ini (Pakatan) merupakan platform bersama," katanya, mengulas amaran Presiden PAS Datuk Abdul Hadi Awang bahawa parti itu akan meninggalkan Pakatan Rakyat jika gabungan itu gagal melaksanakan idealisme Islam di peringkat persekutuan.

Abdul Hadi dilaporkan berkata demikian sebagai merujuk kemungkinan Pakatan membentuk kerajaan persekutuan selepas 16 September ini seperti sedang diusahakan oleh penasihat PKR Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Bercakap di sidang akhbar di Subang Jaya selepas menghadiri dialog bajet negeri itu bagi 2009, Abdul Khalid berkata:

“Dan saya rasa ucapan Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi itu menegaskan perlunya masyarakat Malaysia menerima perjuangan mereka untuk memperjuangkan agama Islam dan ummah sebagai salah satu perjuangan yang tidak boleh ditolak ansur.

"Dan kita (Pakatan) menerima hakikat tersebut."

Sementara itu, exco agama kerajaan negeri Datuk Dr Hassan Ali berkata kenyataan Abdul Hadi itu hanya satu kenyataan dan dalam proses perbincangan dengan rakan-rakan lain dalam Pakatan, sudah tentu ada “tolak-ansur”.

"Itu satu kenyataan. Dalam Pakatan ini, saya fikir, dalam musyawarah (mesyuarat) sudah tentu ada tolak ansur dan sebagainya. Apa pun dasar-dasar (PAS) itu perlu dipertahankan.

"Dan saya fikir untuk membawa dasar seperti itu, tentang ahli-ahli (Pakatan) yang lain, patut dihormati pendapat masing-masing. Dalam penghormatan itulah, saya fikir, kita dapat satu kesepaduan terhadap sesuatu matlamat yang kita perjuangkan," katanya, yang juga pesuruhjaya PAS Selangor.

Menjelaskan lanjut perkara itu, beliau berkata:

"Itu sebenarnya pendirian PAS tentang pemerintahan, tentang pentadbiran, sebab itulah (yang ada) dalam perlembagaan PAS. Maksudnya kalau kita membuat cadangan yang berlainan daripada itu, maka ia bertentangan dengan pendirian PAS."

TP - Yang ni TGHH kene baca betul-betul & kena faham betul-betul.kalau dah DAP boleh sesuaikan agenda depa dalam Pakatan Rakyat,tak kan PAS tak boleh? aku rasa PAS boleh... yang tak bolehnya cuma pimpinan PAS yang kadang-kadang lebih sudu dari kuah. tak salah jugak kalau ada yang bercakap kat belakang - gelojoh-gelojoh DSAI,gelojoh lagi pimpinan PAS sekarang (sebahagian bukan semua)... kadang-kadang tu TGNA cakap lain,TGHH cakap lain...

Pimpinan lain pun bercakap jugak dengan media,tapi tak pernah pulak nak kena perbetul@perjelas balik statement lepas tu,yang sorang ni aku tengok,tiap kali buat statement kat media,kena buang masa 3-4 minggu nak perbetul,nak perjelas balik "yang sebenaqnya macam ni"...


Hampeh...baru pimpin parti dah kalut...belum lagi pimpin negara...yang pening...kami-kami yang dok perjuang dasar Pakatan Rakyat...

Pimpinan PAS kene banyak belajar macam mana nak bercakap & keluar statement pada media...tak kan tak tau peranan media perdana sekarang?

Putar belit mengalahkan ular... pimpinan pulak ingat semua yang baca tu paham bahase kias-kias...berapa kali nak ulang kesilapan yang sama?

Abdullah: ACA free to probe Umno money politics

Reactions: 

Abdullah Badawi being briefed by Fama chairman Datuk Zuraidah Atan at the Maha exhibition in Serdang today. - Bernama

SERDANG, Aug 12 - Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) is allowed to investigate cases involving money politics in the run up to the Umno party elections in December.

Abdullah, who is also Umno president, said however they concerned certain cases which enabled the ACA to take action.

"The Umno headquarters has decided and allowed the ACA to come in and investigate," he told reporters after launching the Malaysian Agricultural, Horticultural and Agro-Tourism (MAHA) Exhibition 2008, here today.

He said this when asked to comment on a report that a “Datuk”, who is an Umno division head, and the division secretary had been interrogated by the ACA yesterday following allegations that they were involved in money politics.

The duo, who are in their 50s, were said to have offered several Umno branch leaders RM1,500 each to secure nominations for the divisional election in October.

He said he had not been informed about the person involved and it was possible that there were certain aspects that required the ACA to come in.

Earlier, the ACA had detained a candidate for the post of the Seremban Umno division head, Mohd Nor Awang, who was suspected to have offered money to an Umno member to vote for him at the branch meeting.

Mohd Nor was detained when he was offering RM500 to the Umno member in Seremban.

Commenting on the statement by Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin that the practice of money politics was rampant at branch meetings and that such practice was placing Umno in a dangerous situation, Abdullah said: "I have also heard that there were many such stories."

"It's pointless. A leader who buys support is not a genuine leader," he said.

"We want someone to be supported because of his capacity, capability and his contributions towards the party's struggles. Money is not the yardstick, and we should not make any mistake in this matter," he said.

Asked on the ACA report lodged by Selangor Umno veteran leader Datuk Mazlan Harun last week alleging that there was an abuse of power in the transition process between Abdullah and his deputy, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, he pointed out that the allegation was baseless.

"This is an important matter decided by the Umno Supreme Council. It's not a private arrangement between Najib and I," he said.

On the preparation by the Barisan Nasional machinery to face the Permatang Pauh by-election on Aug 26, he said everything was proceeding smoothly.

I was not informed of Sabah ACA case(because i'm sleeping at the moment): PM

Reactions: 

(The Star) - The Anti-Corruption Agency has stepped in to act on allegations on money politics within Umno on a case by case basis, Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.

He said he was not informed about Sabah ACA investigating the case involving two Kota Kinabalu Umno branch leaders who were alleged to have offered bribes but there might have been certain aspects that led the agency to act on it.

“I was not informed who they are. Maybe there are certain aspects involving the ACA,” he said when asked to comment on Sabah ACA probing two Kota Kinabalu Umno branch leaders allegedly offering RM1,500 to each delegate in order to get nominations.

Dont you see how busy i am?
Abdullah said Umno headquarters had decided to allow the ACA to step in to investigate complaints on money politics within the party.

On Aug 2, Negri Sembilan ACA arrested a Seremban Umno division leader Mohd Nor Awang for allegedly offering RM500 to a branch chief to nominate him as division chief in the coming party polls.

Abdullah also brushed off claims that he and his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak were involved in abuse of power in the power transition plan.

He said the plan was decided by party supreme council and announced to members.

“It was not that Najib and I were quietly conspiring. It was an important decision by the supreme council and announced to members so that they would understand.

He was asked to respond to veteran Selangor Umno leader Datuk Mazlan Harun’s ACA report against him and Najib on alleged abuse of power.

The report was lodged based on a letter written by Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno division head Kapt (R) Datuk Zahar Hashim which accused Abdullah and Najib of “political corruption of the highest order”.

Asked to comment on party vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin saying that money politics was rampant in the party, Abdullah said: "I have also heard a lot of stories on this matter. There must be some truth to it. Otherwise, how can the stories be so widespread.

“I hope those involved will stop such acts. It’s meaningless to seek popularity through money politics. There is no meaning to it. It’s not genuine if one gains support and victory because he used money politics.”

He said one should be given support based on ability, capability and contributions that were proven to help party struggles and the people.

“That is what we want to be the measurement for one to be given the trust to hold certain positions in the party that provides hope for him to succeed in the party or the government.

“Money is not the measurement. If we use money politics, eventually we will lose out. If that is so, only the rich can hold positions. The poor who do not have the money cannot become leaders. It is not that they are not capable but because they don’t use money.”

He also expressed hope that those who had been punished for money politics not to repeat their offence.

On whether those who had received punishment should be given the opportunity to contest in the party polls, he said: "There are limits to punishment relating to money politics. After they have served their sentence they are free to contest and move around like before.”

End the business of political contracts

Reactions: 

(The Edge) - The news that Umno has been ordered by the High Court to pay an election merchandise supplier RM218 million for campaign paraphernalia for the 2004 general election is indeed stunning.

As the online news site Malaysiakini describes it, the amount is the highest ever that the party has been ordered by a court of law to pay.

The circumstances surrounding the case are deeply disturbing on a number of counts. Firstly, the plaintiff had obtained millions of ringgit of supplies from various companies based on its alleged links with an “influential” politician. This implies that a contract is seen as unnecessary when people in power are believed to be backing a project. The question that reverberates through this episode is, what has become of the basic rules of doing business?

Secondly, some politicians had acknowledged receiving the campaign materials for “free”, and said that it was normal for them to receive such gifts from supporters at election time. This situation leaves ample room for vested interests to influence politicians, and clearly poses an ethical issue that is crying to be addressed.

Thirdly, Umno treasurer Datuk Seri Abdul Azim Mohd Zabidi’s response to the judgment reflects a serious lack of accountability in political affairs. His argument that Elegant Advisory, which had supplied the election materials, had sued the wrong body, since it was the Barisan Nasional (BN) and not Umno that had contested in the election does the party no service. It is not an answer that is expected of the party that calls the shots in the ruling coalition. (Abdul Azim has applied to set aside the judgment as well as to strike out the main suit, on the basis that he had not been served the writ of summons.)

Fourthly, it is disturbing that the supplier’s attempts to obtain a response from BN leaders were met with silence and denial, and that even overseas sub-contractors had failed to get satisfactory replies to their repeated queries to high-level sources. The damage to the country’s reputation from this caper is not to be taken lightly.

Clearly, the need for the business of politics to be cleaned up is imperative. Each of the mistakes that has been made in this case has a clear remedy. There must be no room for “contracts” that are based on the backing of important individuals. The onus of killing this culture of patronage lies primarily with company boards that receive such “offers”.

Political parties have to open their accounts to public scrutiny so that anyone can verify who is paying for what. Politicians must also learn about honour, that forms the basis of their moral authority to lead. Ultimately, leaders must recognise that the time for a national rejuvenation is at hand. They ignore the opportunity at their own peril.

Nik Aziz akan iringi Anwar di hari pernamaan calon

Reactions: 
KOTA BHARU, 12 Ogos: Mursyidul Am PAS, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat akan mengiringi Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim di hari pernamaan calon pilihan raya kecil Permatang Pauh 16 Ogos ini.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam wawancara khas dengan Tvpas.com baru-baru ini.

16 Ogos adalah hari kedua muktamar PAS yang akan diadakan di Ipoh mulai 15 hingga 17 Ogos.

"Saya akan turun di hari penamaan calon, insya Allah," katanya sebagaimana yang dilaporkan Tvpas.

Beliau juga yakin Anwar boleh menang bahkan lebih besar berbanding dengan apa yang diperolehi oleh isterinya, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah.

"Kalau Wan Azizah boleh majoriti lebih 13,000, saya yakin Anwar akan dapat lebih lagi," katanya.

Nik Aziz yakin, pengundi Permatang Pauh tidak akan termakan dengan fitnah yang dihadapi Anwar.

Beliau menyifatkan mereka yang membuat tuduhan liwat ini sebagai tidak bermaruah dan bersifat kebinatangan.

"Belum dibawa ke mahkamah lagi sibuk dah luruhkan nama baik Anwar. Tv, radio, akhbar dah tuduh Anwar. Binatang ini akan masuk neraka jika Anwar tidak maaf. Mana boleh maruah tidak dibela," kata beliau.

TP - Geng-geng "EDI" tak nak komen apa-apa ka???

Confusion Between Right And Wrong

Reactions: 

Today, two politicians suffering from sexual scandals are launching a new political game respectively. Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is going to contest in the Permatang Pauh by-election as a major step taken for his 916 power seizing plan. Meanwhile, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek declared that he will be contesting in MCA's party elections in October, marking his comeback to politics.

Compared to Anwar, Chua is undoubtedly “lucky”. Anwar was imprisoned before, got punched in the eyes and he is now facing another charge. As for Chua, he can still unashamedly face the media, talking about his “courage to admit mistakes”.

Datuk Ong Tee Keat said that “tainted” political leaders should face up to society's values and norms instead of blaming others for exposing their misconduct. We know who he was referring to.

Needless to say, this has triggered new controversies.

Firstly, should personal moral behaviours be a consideration for the selection of a party's leader?

"I'm wrong, but the others are more despicable."

Secondly, is Chua sincere to admit his misconduct or is it just a political struggle result?

We will leave the first controversy to MCA members. As for the second controversy, I believe different people will have different views.

We can actually survey Chua from two points of view. From the political point of view, he has great political performances. This is in fact very controversial and complicated as people from different camps may make a totally different conclusion.

On the other hand, morality has a universal standard. Right means right and wrong means wrong. You cannot simply rationalise your own behaviours because others have exposed your misconduct by a dirty means. Of course, morality should not be counted in political performance. But once a person is found morally guilty, even he has owned up, he will still have to accept the criticism from the society and pay the price. This is what we call politics.

Moreover, there are differences between introspection and admission of misconduct. Introspection is humble as a person will review his fault on the basis of admission. He will further prove that he will redeem himself by a thorough change.

A person needs courage to admit his fault but it does not mean that he will have introspection. Just like a murder suspect has courage to admit his murder in court but it is not necessarily means that he has reviewed his fault, understands that he has done something very wrong and make up his mind not to do it again.

The controversy about Chua is whether he really made the confession with remorse?

To Chua, he is a person who has committed a wrongdoing, as well as a victim who was secretly videotaped. Such a “confusing” status may lead him falls into the confusion of “I'm wrong, but the others are more despicable”. At this moment, the confusion between right and wrong seems to be unable to be clarified.

Malaysian ruling party women declare 'jihad' against Anwar

Reactions: 

(AFP) - The women's wing of Malaysia's ruling party has reportedly declared a "jihad" or holy war to prevent opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim returning to parliament in a by-election this month.

"It is a jihad because this individual should not be given the chance to destroy the country's political stability and prosperity," women's wing deputy chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said according to The Star newspaper.

Shahrizat, a former cabinet minister, lost her seat in parliament to Anwar's daughter Nurul Izzah in landmark March elections that handed the opposition unprecedented gains against the ruling coalition.

"If we allow him to lead the country, he would lead us to destruction," she said as she launched the women's wing campaign for the August 26 by-election in Anwar's home state of Penang.

The United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) leads the coalition and represents the interests of Muslim Malays who are the majority in Malaysia, alongside ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities.

The three-member opposition alliance is led by Anwar's Keadilan party which for the first time in Malaysia's political history has established itself as a multi-racial party representing all the communities.

Anwar's wife, Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, stood aside to allow him to make a bid to return to parliament, a decade after he was sacked as deputy premier and jailed on sodomy and corruption charges.

He spent six years in jail until the sex conviction was overturned by the nation's highest court in 2004, but now faces new allegations that he sodomised a 23-year-old male aide.

Anwar has been charged in court but is still eligible to contest the by-election. He has said the charges have been engineered by the government to prevent him from seizing power.

Kabinet Lulus Beli 21 Helicopter Baru Buat PDRM, Kata Musa Hassan

Reactions: 
LABUAN, 12 Ogos (Bernama) -- Kabinet meluluskan permohonan Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) untuk memperoleh 21 helikopter baru pelbagai jenis bagi menampung keupayaan tugas PDRM.

Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Musa Hassan berkata bagaimanapun kerajaan belum memutuskan lagi tarikh pembelian aset berkenaan.

Buat masa ini PDRM sudah memiliki 12 helikopter, katanya ketika ditemui selepas melawat Stesen Lima Tentera Laut Diraja Malaysia (TLDM), Terumbu Layang-layang dekat sini hari ini.

Musa menghadiri Ops Pasir iaitu eksesais bersama Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM), PDRM dan Agensi Penguatkuasaan Maritim Malaysia (APMM) di perairan Sabah.

Beliau berkata pemilikan aset itu bukan sahaja untuk menjalankan rondaan tetapi untuk membantu tugas pencegahan jenayah.

Dua helikopter PDRM kini digunakan oleh Pasukan Gerakan Am (PGA) bagi tujuan pengawasan kawasan perairan Sabah.

Ketika ditanya mengenai eksesais bersama ATM, PDRM dan APMM itu, Musa berkata ini merupakan satu kerjasama bersepadu antara agensi penguatkuasa dalam menjaga perairan negara di bawah angkatan tugas bersama.

"Kita sentiasa mempertingkatkan latihan-latihan dari masa ke masa. Kita juga mempunyai pangkalan kita di negeri ini iaitu di daerah Semporna yang menempatkan Polis Marin dan PGA," katanya.

Beliau berkata terdapat kira-kira 3,000 anggota Polis Marin yang ditempatkan di sini bagi menjaga perairan Sabah.

Will Hadi be in the line of fire?

Reactions: 

Hadi may be given a hard time by delegates at this weekend’s muktamar.

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 12 — Will Pas delegates dare to openly criticise their president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and his deputy Nasharudin Mat Isa for having secret talks with Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi recently?

Or will Hadi convince them of the need to foster relations with their ideological enemy Umno for the sake of Malay and Muslim unity?

These are among the major questions that will be answered at the Pas general assembly or muktamar in Ipoh this weekend.

It will begin with Nasharudin opening the Youth wing meeting tomorrow night. The Youth as well as the ulama (religious scholars) and muslimat (women) wings will convene their respective meeting on Thursday.

Hadi will open the three-day muktamar on Friday morning with his highly anticipated keynote address — and the party faithful are speculating and anticipating any clear references to the secret talks with the Prime Minister as well as the proposed unity talks with Umno.

A Pas insider said Hadi had initially planned to include the proposal for unity talks with its political enemy in his address but recent developments — mostly fierce criticism by grassroots members — called for some changes.

"The president will still have to address the issue. Most probably he will reiterate his most recent stand that there is no way for Pas to work together with Umno," said the insider.

Some leaders in Pas believe that despite the opposition Pakatan Rakyat's success in gaining four states in addition to Pas-controlled Kelantan and denying the Barisan Nasional's two-thirds parliamentary majority, their party does not play a major role in the coalition.

Some of them even argued that despite having a Pas menteri besar in Perak, the state exco is dominated by the DAP, which has a majority number of state seats. Although having a clear control of Kelantan and Kedah, these leaders are not satisfied at being sidelined in Penang, Perak and Selangor.

With Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's perceived liberal stance — promoting multiracial politics with emphasis on justice and fairness for all — some Pas leaders are worried that the Islamist party would have to sacrifice its Islamic state agenda.

So it seemed like a golden opportunity for them to flex their Islamist stance when Umno offered a coalition in several states including Perak and Selangor if they were willing to cross over. When the news broke out, the Pas grassroots — whose aim is to see the end of the BN — were absolutely livid.

For the grassroots, the secret discussions between their top leaders and Abdullah were already on the verge of betrayal and they will have a chance to air their views through the delegates at this muktamar.

The question is — how far would they go to chastise their top leadership, or it will just fizzle out during the debate, in the name of party unity?

Perhaps the timing is perfect for Hadi as the nation is watching the Permatang Pauh by-election campaign as a possible political comeback for its former MP Anwar. As long as the focus to bring Anwar back to Parliament — and to renew attacks on Umno and the BN — the muktamar may spend less time chiding the top leadership over the controversial covert meetings.

Perhaps some Pas delegates would like to see Hadi in the line of fire but party unity is expected to see the leaders closing ranks and living to fight another day.

The debates at the muktamar are also expected to touch on Muslim issues including the rowdy demonstration against the Bar Council forum on conversion to Islam last Saturday. Delegates are expected to insist the Bar and other organisations have no right to question Islam — although the Bar Council did no such thing — and will express support for such demonstrations, although some are expected to question the storming into the forum hall.

This topic will expand into a wider issue of Islam being allegedly marginalised; and that the BN's Islam Hadhari is expected to be blamed for confusing Muslims and non-Muslims alike over the misunderstanding of the religion.

Still the muktamar is expected to endorse the continued cooperation in Pakatan as many Pas leaders including grassroots members believe the end is near for the BN although many are also sceptical of Anwar's Sept 16 deadline to take over the federal government.

For them, the important thing is to prepare for the coming general election, either a snap poll or a proper one within the next two or three years. While delegates will insist that leadership must never abandon the dream of an Islamic state for Malaysia, they too are pragmatic enough to share the spoils of political war, as long as elements of Islam are included in the administration of the soon-to-be-formed federal government.

The pragmatism, while never admitted openly, is said to be the brainchild of vice-president Datuk Husam Musa, backed by spiritual leader Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, with the support of the party's young turks such as Dr Syed Azman Nawawi, Datuk Kamaruddin Jaffar, Dr Hatta Ramli and Salahuddin Ayub.

While this does not imply a split within the top party ranks, at the moment the young turks are the ones having strong support from grassroots leaders and members, especially when revered ulama Nik Aziz, who is also Kelantan menteri besar, is backing them.

The muktamar is also not just a political talk shop. The party headquarters are assisting organiser Perak Pas to provide some entertainment for delegates and guests with a concert by religious pop groups Far-East and Saff One on Thursday night, contrary to public opinion that they are against all forms of pleasure. The organisers even tried to get the participation of rock legend Amy Search but the singer had already confirmed a booking in Sabah.

Some 3,000 delegates from 175 divisions are expected to attend the muktamar at Ipoh's Indera Mulia Stadium. This is the first time the muktamar is being held in Perak.

Kayuh cermat jiwa selamat,
Gatal jari tangan digari,

Kalau memblog tidak berhemat,

Dicekup polis di malam hari.

Memang. Memang saya tak puas hati ditangkap. Saya tak puas hati kerana saya bukannya ditangkap kerana memperjuangkan nasib mustadh'afin (the oppressed atau golongan tertindas).

Saya juga bukannya ditangkap kerana memperjuangkan golongan terpinggir (the marginalised). Bukan kerana menentang rasuah, penyelewengan, penyalagunaan kuasa dan bukan kerana memperjuangkan Malaysia baru yang lebih bertamaddun akhlaknya. Bukan, bukan, bukan!

Saya dicekup polis di malam hari kerana kesilapan bangang (stupid mistake).

Saya bangga?

Nak bangga apa?! Tangan digari kerana gatal jari. Saya tak bangga sikit pun. Menyusahkan anak bini aku ja. Menyusahkan kawan-kawan aku. Tak pasal-pasal depa kena berkumpul di hadapan Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersil (JSJK) kerana kesilapan bangang aku. Saya merayu kemaafan mereka. Merayu sangat-sangat!

Saya juga tak bangga copy and paste crest puaka tu. Nak bangga apa?! Kesilapan bangang.

Saya pun dah delete crest puaka tu dari posting bertajuk "Kenapa tak usik Raja Petra?" Saya dah malas nak ingat benda tu.

Saya nak jadi orang yang sama

Ketika saya diberitahu sebab penangkapan saya, saya terus beritahu pegawai-pegawai polis yang menangkap saya, "Kalau yang ni, aku tak nak bela diri aku". Sejak saat pertama saya diberitahu sebab penangkapan saya, itulah jawapan dan perasaan saya.

Saya hanya nak jadi bakaq a.k.a. ~penarik beca yang sama. Kalau di JSJK saya kata saya tak bangga dan saya kesal (alahai, di bangunan itu jugalah terletaknya Kementerian Dalam Negeri dulu, di mana saya berkhidmat dari 2 Mei 1980 hingga 31 Disember 1983), di luar pun saya cakap perkara yang sama juga.

Saya tak kata saya kesal sebab saya nak bodek polis yang tangkap saya supaya mereka tak debik saya atau sumbat saya lama-lama dalam lokap. Saya tak perlu bodek polis. Nasib saya bukan di tangan mereka.

Kalau Allah s.w.t. yang dikasihi mentaqdirkan saya akan didebik macam anjin kepala buruk dan diterajang masuk lokap sampai mampuih, kalau itu taqdir Allah terhadap saya, bodeklah polis sampai berguling-guling atas tanah pun, itulah nasib yang terpaksa saya harungi.

Kalau Allah tidak mentaqdirkan saya disiksa bagai di neraka, buatlah apa pun, bulu roma pun tak gugur. Nasib saya di tangan Allah yang saya sembah.

Saya orang, bukan plastik

Saya tak ingat apa depa kata dengan tepat. Tetapi beberapa pegawai polis yang tangkap dan siasat saya dan juga pegawai-pegawai lain, termasuk ACP Kamaruddin Md Din bagaikan berkata kepada saya, "Gamak hang buat gitu kat lambang yang kami letak atas kepala kami!"

Saya beritahu mereka, bukan saya buat. Saya gatai tangan copy and paste crest puaka tu. ACP Kamaruddin memang marah kat saya. Tetapi, dia tak debik saya. Sama seperti kita, dia pun orang jugak, bukan robocop yang mungkin dicipta supaya tidak berperikemanusiaan.

Bila depa kata gitu, saya orang, bukan plastik. Saya rasa rasa kesal sangat. Sebab itulah saya beritahu Malaysiakini:
"Saya memohon maaf mana-mana yang tersinggung kepada semua (anggota) polis. Tetapi tulisan dalam artikel itu saya pertahankan," katanya.

"Saya rasa saya tidak patutlah meletakkan lambang itu."

"Apabila disebut (dalam siasatan) tentang lambang (PDRM) itu, saya langsung tidak mempertahankan. Saya kesal dan saya tidak pertahankan. Kalau ada orang bertanya bab itu, saya malas layan lagi," tambahnya.

"Saya kesal, dan saya balik, saya mahu buang."
Semalam pun saya mohon maaf lagi dalam berita Malaysiakini bertajuk "Blogger apologises for lampooning police logo".

Ni saya nak mohon maaf lagi. Saya memohon maaf kepada seluruh anggota polis kerana copy and paste crest puaka itu dalam posting berkenaan. Saya mohon maaf sungguh-sungguh!

Mengelak didakwa?

Adakah saya beria-ia memohon maaf kerana mahu mengelak didakwa? Dakwa tak dakwa bukan urusan saya. Itu urusan undang-undang. Saya tidak ada kuasa nak ubah undang-undang.

Saya mohon maaf dari dhamir saya

Saya pun ada kelemahan. Bila saya diasak pelbagai persoalan oleh polis mengenai crest puaka itu, saya teringat sangat kat mak mertua saya. Saya dok teringat, macam manalah agaknya kalau mak tahu (memang dia dah tahu pun).

Saya jahat. Mak mertua lebih tahu dari orang lain bahawa anak dia bersuamikan orang jahat. Tetapi, jahat-jahat saya pun, saya tak mahu menyakitkan lagi hati mak, walaupun saya tahu dia amat merana sejak saat pertama dia menerima saya sebagai menantunya.

Menyakitkan hati mak mertua saya sama seperti menderhakainya. Menderhakainya sama seperti saya menderhakai mak yang melahirkan saya. Sama seperti saya menderhakai Fatimah Az-Zahra 'a.s. yang sangat-sangat saya kasihi, puteri RasuluLlah sallaLlahu 'alaihi wa alihi wasallam yang teringin sungguh hati saya hendak memanggil bonda kepadanya, tetapi saya tak berani kerana orang jahat selama-lamanya tidak layak memanggil bonda kepada Fatimah yang suci.

Mak mertua saya isteri anggota polis. Isteri saya dan adik-adiknya dibesarkan dan disekolahkan dengan gaji seorang anggota polis - abah yang dikasihi. Sebab itulah saya takut sangat mak mertua saya tahu sebab apa saya ditangkap. Tapi nak buat macam mana, mak dah tahu.

Good cop, bad cop

Saya berkali-kali memberitahu kepada pegawai-pegawai polis di JSJK, yang saya lawan ialah polis yang jahat.

Pasukan polis juga seperti yang lain. Ada baik, ada jahat.

Dalam PAS yang saya sokong pun ada yang baik. Ramai juga yang jahat. Dalam Umno juga ada yang baik, ramai yang jahat. Malah di masjid pun ada yang baik dan ada yang jahat. Ada yang pergi masjid kerana hendak mendedakatkan diri kepada Allah - qurbatan ilaLlah. Mereka baik.

Tetapi, ada juga yang pergi masjid kerana hendak curi kasut. Itu jahat.

Begitu juga dengan pasukan polis. Selepas ini saya akan sebut, i am targetting the bad cop. Polis baik saya tidak akan sakiti lagi hati mereka. Kalau saya buat begitu, saya yakin Allah s.w.t. yang dikasihi pun tak suka.

Takat ni dulu. Saya nak kena pi lagi JSJK. Saya nak pergi dan balik sebagai bakaq a.k.a. ~penarik beca yang sama. Seperti yang saya janjikan kepada majistret ketika merayu supaya reman ke atas saya dikurangkan dari lima hari dan majistret bagi dua hari sahaja, saya bersedia berkerjasama sepenuhnya sepanjang yang berhubung penangkapan saya. Berhubung dengan penangkapan saya sahaja.

Terima kasih tidak terhingga kepada semua yang bersimpati terutama yang bersusah-payah. Terima kasih tak terhingga.

Bila BPR Akan Tangkap Ketua Pengarah LKIM?

Reactions: 
Jika tidak kerana dilindungi seorang menteri kabinet kanan, sudah pastinya Ketua Pengarah Lembaga Kemajuan Ikan Malaysia, Dato' Mustaffa Haji Ahmad akan di berkas Badan Pencegah Rasuah (BPR) sebaik sahaja BPR berjaya membongkar kes penyeludupan diesel bersubsidi di Sandakan pada awal tahun ini.

LKIM, sebuah Badan Berkanun yang ditubuhkan pada 1 November, 1971 di bawah Akta 49, Akta Lembaga Kemajuan Ikan Malaysia, 1971 untuk meningkatkan taraf hidup nelayan kini menjadi agensi penghisap darah nelayan kerana gagal mentadbir urus pengagehan diesel bersubsidi.


Jawatankuasa Khas Kabinet Mengenai Harga dan Bekalan Diesel yang dipengerusikan Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Najib Tun Abdul Razak meluluskan penyaluran bekalan diesel bersubsidi di peringkat kawasan dilaksanakan oleh Persatuan Nelayan Kawasan mulai 1 Jun 2006.


Sehubungan itu, mulai tarikh tersebut Pengurus Besar Persatuan Nelayan Kawasan (PNK) hendaklah mengenalpasti jeti milik LKIM atau PNK untuk dijadikan Pusat Jualan Diesel Bersubsidi atau menyewa jeti persendirian yang telah mendapat kelulusan Jabatan Kastam dan Eksais Diraja serta mempunyai lesen PDA untuk penjualan runcit petroleum daripada Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna.


Menurut peraturan yang berkuatkuasa, Jawatankuasa Induk Skim Subsidi Diesel Nelayan akan hanya menimbang permohonan memperbaharui atau menambah kelulusan kuota diesel kepada Persatuan Nelayan Sabah (PENESA) dan Ko-Nelayan berdasarkan Pusat Jualan Diesel Bersubsidi PNK yang berdaftar sahaja.


Jawankuasa Khas Kabinet Mengenai Harga dan Bekalan Diesel juga mengharamkan semua aktiviti penjualan diesel bersubsidi di jeti persendirian, namun arahan Jawatankuasa Kabinet ini gagal dipatuhi Ketua Pengarah Lembaga Kemajuan Ikan Malaysia, Dato' Mustafa Haji Ahmad.

Dato' Mustafa telah melantik JC Petroleum yang dimiliki oleh seorang penjenayah yang telah menjalani hukuman buang daerah, Mr Tay, melalui beberapa anak syarikatnya untuk mengagehkan diesel bersubsidi yang terletak di bawah bidang kuasanya.


Mengikut modus operandi yang dijalankan secara haram, Dato' Mustaffa telah mengarahkan Pengurus Besar Ko-Nelayan, Haji Mashood Salleh dengan kerjasama Mantan Pengerusi Ko-Nelayan, Datuk Haji Jasa Datuk Haji Rauddah membolot semua kuota yang diberikan dengan melantik JC Petroleum sebagai pengedar tunggal.


Dengan kerjasama Pegawai Kanan Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna, kebanyakan diesel bersubsidi yang dibekalkan dijeti swasta tidak mempunyai tag nano bagi mengelak tangkapan atau dikesan.


Semua depo di Sandakan dan Tawau hanya membekalkan kira-kira 25 peratus diesel bersubsidi pada waktu siang, manakala bakinya 75 peratus dikeluarkan secara haram pada waktu malam untuk di seludup keluar dan di jual di pasaran gelap oleh beberapa syarikat pengumpul diesel milik JC Petroleum.


Seorang pegawai penguatkuasa Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna yang hanya mengenalkan dirinya sebagai Hamid mengakui beliau gagal melaksanakan tugas dengan sempurna kerana ketuanya turut terlibat dalam aktiviti haram berkenaan.


"Saya pernah di ugut oleh Mr Tay dan Datuk Chin, tetapi saya tidak melaporkannya kerana bimbang keselamatan saya terancam. Saya tidak dapat berbuat apa-apa melainkan melaporkan hal ini kepada BPR," ujar Hamid yang berpuas hati dengan kejayaan BPR memberkas ketuanya.

Tinjauan Malaysia Today mendapati sejumlah 12.417 juta liter diesel bersubsidi telah diagehkan di lapan kawasan di Sabah dalam tempoh satu bulan iaitu bermula 1 Jun 2008 hingga 30 Jun 2008 sebagai kerangka kajian.


Bahagian Sandakan mendahului kawasan lain dengan 3.829 juta liter berbanding Kota Kinabalu, Kudat dan Tawau masing-masing 2.860 juta liter, 2.327 juta liter dan 1.079 juta liter dan selebihnya untuk kawasan Labuan, Semporna, Kunak dan Lahad Datu.


Dalam tempoh yang sama, pemantauan dilakukan hampir kesemua Jeti Pendaratan Ikan mendapati arahan Jawatankuasa Kabinet tidak langsung dipatuhi di Sabah apabila pemberian kuota diesel bersubsidi diberikan kepada pihak swasta yang tidak mempunyai lesen PDA yang sah.


Bagi kawasan Kota Kinabalu, Persatuan Pemilik Kapal Nelayan KK (Menggatal) mendapat kuota 450,000 liter diesel bersubsidi daripada Depo Petronas.


Agehan 4.850 juta liter kuota diesel bersubsidi bagi Daerah Kota Kinabalu diberikan kepada Jeti Pendaratan Ikan Safma sejumlah 1.65 juta liter; Jeti QL Deep Sea Fishing Sdn.Bhd (Sepanggar) 450,000 liter; Jeti Fook Soon Seafood Product 600,000 liter; Jeti Kompleks Perikanan Nelayan Kudat 850,000 liter; Jeti Siong Ann Trawler Sdn. Bhd. (Kudat) 600,000 liter dan Jeti Pendaratan Ikan Ko-Nelayan Kuala Penyu 250,000 liter sebulan.


Manakala bagi Daerah Sandakan, sejumlah 4.95 juta liter kuota diesel bersubsidi diagehkan masing-masing kepada Jeti Persatuan Perikanan Sandakan 720,000 liter; Jeti Barter Trade Sandakan 270,000 liter; Jeti sabah Sea Produce Sdn. Bhd. 810,000 liter; Jeti North Borneo Fishing Sdn. Bhd. 900,000 liter; Jeti Pendaratan Ikan Hing Lee Sdn. Bhd. 720,000 liter; Jeti Tung Hai Sdn. Bhd. 630,000 liter; Jeti Geran TL 077555125 630,000 liter dan Jeti Persatuan Perikanan Nelayan Beluran 270,000 liter.


Sementara itu, sejumlah 4.6 juta liter kuota diesel bersubsidi telah diagehkan bagi daerah Tawau dan Labuan masing-masing melalui Jeti Thai Chia Fishing Sdn. Bhd. (Kunak) 270,000 liter; Jeti Visikurnia Consolidated Sdn. Bhd. (Kunak) 270,000 liter; Persatuan Nelayan Kawasan Kunak 450,000 liter; Persatuan Nelayan Kawasan Tawau 1.08 juta liter; Jeti Pendaratan Seafest (Semporna) 700,000 liter; Jeti Persatuan Nelayan Kawasan Semporna 450,000 liter; Jeti Kompleks Perikanan Ko-Nelayan 300,000 (Lahad Datu) dan Jeti Pendaratan Labuan Fisheries 720,000 liter.


Tinjauan Malaysia Today mendapati peruncit yang di lantik oleh Ko-Nelayan telah menjualkan minyak diesel bersubsidi kepada nelayan asing dari Filipina dan Indonesia atau kilang kelapa sawit swasta di Sandakan.


Kejayaan Badan Pencegah Rasuah Sabah memberkas Ketua Penguatkuasa Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna Sabah, Ismail Yunus bersama dua orang pegawainya membuktikan penyelewengan diesel bersubsidi begitu ketara terutama kehilangan lebih 2 juta liter setiap bulan di Sabah.


Serbuan BPR ke Jeti Barter Trade Sandakan juga mencatat kejayaan besar sehingga terbongkar skandal menjual diesel bersubsidi kepada kapal asing yang berlabuh di Zon Merah berkenaan.

Mungkin kerana Mantan Pengerusi Ko-Nelayan, Datuk Haji Jasa Haji Rauddah berasal daripada Kunak, maka tidak menghairankan jika Ko-Nelayan memperuntukan kuota diesel bersubsidi sebanyak 990,000 liter sedangkan hanya tujuh orang nelayan sahaja yang memiliki kad fleet diesel bersubsidi.


Penjualan diesel bersubsidi secara haram di Kunak turut didalangi Ketua Polis Daerah Kunak, DSP Dingka Utoh dan rakan sekutunya, Alimuddin Haji Ajay sejak awal 2006.


Amat menakjubkan diesel bersubsidi ini didapati di jual di Keningau dan Nabawan sedangkan Keningau tidak mempunyai walau seorang nelayan laut dalam.


Walaupun hampir kesemua jeti yang menjual diesel bersubsidi, hanya sebilangan kecil sahaja mempunyai lesen PDA4 iaitu lesen menjual runcit diesel kerana selebihnya hanyalah lesen borong.


Keuntungan yang dicatatkan oleh JC Petroleum menyebabkan, Dato' Mustaffa dan semua Pengarah LKIM di seluruh Malaysia membantah perlantikan Datuk Abdul Rahim Ismail sebagai Pengerusi LKIM yang baru menggantikan Adam Hamid yang selama ini mendalangi aktiviti penjualan diesel bersubsidi secara haram.


Bilakah BPR akan mencekup Ketua Pengarah LKIM ini sebagaimana kejayaan mereka menangkap Ketua Pengarah Imigresen, Datuk Abdul Wahid Mohd Don kerana terlibat dengan pengeluaran visa kepada warga asing secara tidak sah?

10,000 sertai Perarakan 'Baju Hitam' bantah buka UiTM kepada bukan Bumiputera

Reactions: 
(Dikemas kini) SHAH ALAM: Hampir 10,000 penuntut Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) berarak ke Bangunan SUK Selangor di Shah Alam pagi tadi bagi membantah syor supaya pusat pengajian tinggi tersebut, berusia lebih lima dekad, dibuka kepada bukan Bumiputera.

Tinjauan mStar Online mendapati penuntut UiTM telah mula berkumpul sejak 7.30 pagi untuk bergerak secara konvoi - menaiki bas UiTM, kereta dan menunggang motosikal bagi melahirkan pendirian bantahan mereka.

Pada awalnya pihak penganjur menjangkakan kira-kira 2,000 orang sahaja akan menyertai perarakan tersebut.

Perarakan yang diberi nama "Perhimpunan UiTM Di Hatiku" telah menyerahkan memorandum membantah syor tersebut kepada wakil Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Ketika dihubungi sebentar tadi, Yang Dipertua Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar (MPP) UiTM, Luqmannulhakim Mohamad Idris berkata, pihaknya telah menyerahkan memorandum kepada wakil Menteri Besar Selangor pukul 10 pagi.

"Kami mendesak agar Menteri Besar memohon maaf dan menarik balik kenyataan tersebut (syor 10 peratus tempat di UiTM dibuka kepada bukan Bumiputera)," katanya.

Tindakan susulan termasuk menyerahkan memorandum bantahan kepada Perdana Menteri dan Canselor UiTM akan ditentukan selepas reaksi Khalid, kata beliau.

“Kita telah merancang pelan tindakan secara terpeinci. Susulan fasa kedua dan ketiga akan diteruskan termasuk memohon perkenan Tuanku Canselor (Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin) bertitah agar UiTM tidak diganggu,” katanya.

Bercakap kepada media di hadapan pintu masuk Bangunan SUK, Luqmannulhakim berkata pergerakan bantahan hari ini bukanlah atas desakan oleh Naib Canselor UiTM, Prof. Datuk Seri Dr. Ibrahim Abu Shah atau mana-mana parti politik.

Tambah beliau agar isu pembukaan UiTM kepada bukan bumiputera tidak dipolitikkan oleh pihak-pihak tertentu untuk meraih simpati dan juga undi dalam pilihanraya kecil yang akan diadakan nanti.

“Kita melihat ini adalah taktik pihak tertentu menjelang pilihanraya kecil di Permatang Pauh nanti.

“Sekiranya tujuannya ialah untuk itu (politik), maka tolonglah hentikan kerana telah termaktub dalam Perkara 153 Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang ditubuhkan khas untuk Bumiputera,” katanya.

Diminta mengulas mengenai pendapat yang mengatakan percampuran pelajar Bumiputera dan bukan Bumiputera akan mewujudkan satu persaingan yang sihat, beliau tidak bersetuju dengan pendapat itu.

“Saya amat tidak bersetuju kerana telah terbukti seperti apa yang berlaku di universiti-universiti lain setiap kaum tertentu hanya akan bergaul dengan kaum mereka sendiri.

“Ini bukan persaingan yang sihat. Keadaan ini lebih bahaya jika wujudnya perasaan mementingkan kaum sendiri walaupun belajar dalam satu institusi,” katanya.

Tegas beliau walaupun UiTM terdiri daripada kaum Bumiputera sahaja, tetapi para pelajarnya telah dididik untuk menghormati agama, adat dan kepercayaan kaum lain.

Diminta mengulas mengenai pembukaan UiTM kepada pelajar antarabangsa, beliau berkata tindakan itu adalah bagi kepentingan jangka masa panjang.

“Kepentingan kita diperingkat pelajar sekarang ialah agar dapat mewujudkan jaringan hubungan dua hala dengan pelajar antarabangsa pada masa-masa akan datang,” katanya.

Dr. Ibrahim dijadual mengadakan sidang media di pejabatnya di Shah Alam pada pukul 2 petang ini.

Sementara itu, penuntut UiTM yang membanjiri perkarangan Bangunan SUK bersorak melaungkan kata-kata seperti ‘selamatkan UiTM’, ‘UiTM untuk bumiputera’ serta ‘hidup UiTM’.

Mereka juga memegang sepanduk yang bertulis ‘kami pertahankan hak bumiputera’, ‘kami bantah buka UiTM kepada bukan bumiputera’ serta ‘UiTM hak bumiputera’.

Pukul 9 malam tadi, wakil MPP UiTM telah mengadakan pertemuan dengan Ibrahim bagi memaklumkan tindakan mereka pagi ini.

Ketika dihubungi malam tadi, Luqmannulhakim berkata: "Kami komuniti pelajar UiTM membantah keras pandangan (membuka UiTM) sedemikian."

"Kami mendapati alasan bahawa tindakan mengkhaskan UiTM hanya kepada masyarakat Bumiputera menyebabkan pelajar Bumiputera kurang berinteraksi dan sebagainya adalah tidak benar," kata beliau.

Malah, pada pukul 9 malam tadi, wakil MPP UiTM telah mengadakan pertemuan dengan Naib Canselornya, Prof. Datuk Seri Dr. Ibrahim Abu Shah bagi memaklumkan tindakan mereka.

Kata Luqmannulhakim, pada pertemuan itu pengurusan tidak menghalang MPP untuk mengambil langkah sedemikian.

Malah, tindakan ini hanya disertai pelajar UiTM, bukannya pengurusan dan kakitangan.
"Kami difahamkan pengurusan UiTM akan mengeluarkan kenyataan kemudian," katanya.

Perarakan menyerahkan memorandum itu kepada kerajaan negeri merupakan langkah pertama, kata beliau.

"Selepas ini kami akan menyerahkan memorandum yang serupa kepada Perdana Menteri dan kemudian Yang di-Pertuan Agong yang juga Canselor UiTM. Ini akan dilakukan minggu depan," katanya.

Mengulas lanjut, kata Luqmannulhakim, pihaknya akan menghimpunkan penuntut-penuntut UiTM di kampus induk di Shah Alam awal pagi esok sebelum berarak ke Bangunan SUK.

"Sehingga malam ini (Isnin) kami sudah memperoleh tandatangan menyokong memorandum bantahan daripada lebih 5,000 pelajar dan ia mungkin akan mencecah 10,000 orang esok," katanya.

Kata Luqmannulhakim, pendirian kerajaan negeri Selangor dan Menteri Besar yang meminta 10 peratus diperuntukkan kepada penuntut bukan Bumiputera dan rakyat asing telah menimbulkan rasa tidak puas hati di kalangan pelajar.

“Memorandum ini bertujuan meminta beliau (Menteri Besar Selangor) menarik balik kenyataannya kerana bertentangan dengan prinsip penubuhan UiTM sebagai sebuah institusi pengajian tinggi bagi melahirkan profesional di kalangan Bumiputera,” katanya.

Perhimpunan pelajar secara besar-besaran akan diadakan esok di Padang Kawad UiTM Shah Alam seawal pukul 7.30 pagi bagi mendapatkan tandatangan pelajar sebagai bantahan.

Sementara itu Naib Canselor UiTM ketika dihubungi enggan mengulas lanjut mengenai perkara tersebut.

“Maaf, saya tak dapat nak beri komen mengenai perkara ini sehingga Menteri Pengajian Tinggi membuat kenyataan rasmi mengenai perkara ini,” katanya.

Beliau hanya akan memberi komen dalam sidang media khas yang akan diadakan di pejabatnya esok setelah Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin mengeluarkan kenyataan.

Dalam pada itu, mStar Online gagal mendapatkan komen Khaled berhubung isu ini.

Menteri Besar Selangor mencadangkan 10 peratus daripada jumlah semasa kuota pelajar di UiTM dibuka kepada bukan Bumiputera serta pelajar asing.

Khalid berkata, cadangan itu akan dapat mempertingkatkan kualiti pendidikan dan persaingan di kalangan pelajar institusi pengajian tinggi (IPT) tersebut.

Menurut beliau, syor itu juga dianggapnya sebagai wajar dan tepat dengan usaha UiTM yang mahu melahirkan pelajar daripada golongan Melayu dan Bumiputera yang berdaya saing.

Beliau melahirkan pandangan itu ketika mengulas kenyataan Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Tetap Pendidikan, Pengajian Tinggi dan Pembangunan Modal Insan, Dr. Halimah Ali dalam sebuah akhbar hari ini yang berpendapat UiTM perlu 'dibuka' kepada kaum lain jika ingin mewujudkan persaingan yang sihat.

Bagaimanapun, kata Khalid, cadangan yang dilontarkan ini perlu difikirkan sedalam-dalamnya daripada semua aspek agar tidak bercanggah dengan dasar penubuhan IPT itu dalam melahirkan generasi bumiputera yang berilmu dan berdaya saing.
