Malaysiakini had reported that the issue of the purchase of 14 Mercedes Benz by the Terengganu State government had been resolved with the approval been received by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
New reports indicate that these vehicles are supposed to be used to ferry visitors and not for the State Executive Councillors.
So which news is true.
We have yet to hear what PM Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has said. But sources say that the Prime Minister had stated that he approves the purchase of these 14 Mercedes Benz but they must be use for official visitors and the State Executive Councillors will still have to use the Proton Perdana V6 as directed by the federal government.
Now, the question is why have 14 Mercedes Benz VIP cars. This clearly demonstrates that the Barisan Nasional State government has just wasted public funds for a non-worthy cause when the Terengganu rakyat are crying for help due to hikes in prices.
