Malaysiakini reported that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has finally agreed to the decision by the Terengganu State Government in their purchase of 14 brand new Mercedes E200 Kompressors for RM3.43million for the use of their State Executive Councillors, in place of a government directive of Proton Perdana V6 Executive cars have to be used which according to the Terengganu government has a very high maintenance cost.
This was conveyed yesterday while speaking to reporters after chairing the UMNO Supreme Council Meeting in Kuala Lumpur. The state government started using these vehicles from yesterday.
This certainly shows that our Barisan Nasional government had wasted public funds in commencing this Proton project. With rising fuel cost and high cost of maintenance of proton cars, it will not be long that this company will face a bleak situation and would require a another BAIL OFF. Once again public funds are going to be wasted on BN's corrupt ideas just to uplift and make UMNOputra leaders rich.
Its time for the rakyat to GET RID of this 'useless and corrupt' Barisan Nasional government NOW before more damage is created by these irresponsible leaders.
