Sakmongkol ak 47

Mr.PKNP sir, soalan tambahan.


I'd better ask the questions now. After the whole thing ends up a mess or when the rice has turned into porridge, it would be utterly useless to start asking questions.

The promoter of the Tanjung Agas Industrial Park is TASBSB- what a mouthful. PKNP is a 30% shareholder. The TAS needs RM 2b initially to develop the area.

Where will it get this money? It says it will get this money from KAF Investment bank- the Kuwaiti bank and the Government. Will this mean the government gives them a soft loan?

Where will the RM2b be applied- will be applied to work done on the 4000 acres?

I repeat, what is the price psf of the land that will be sold to TAS? Will it be similar to the bloody daylight robbery price by which the Pahang government sold the land to MEC city?

Since the land belongs to the government, the government must state clearly how much is the cost per square foot? 50 sen per square foot? RM 7 psf? Will it be RM 25 psf?

After land improvement- and you can bet, the contractors for earthworks have already been selected, what will the price psf? RM 35 psf as in PKFZ? That's RM 1 over million per acre.

And so if I want to build a warehouse on a 5 acre site- you know to store all those fabricated materials, steel, Molotov bottles, flamethrowers and maybe some C4, I will have to fork out RM 5 over million for the land alone. Luckily the price of steel has gone down a bit. I will probably have to spend another RM 2 million plus other expenses, maybe another 2 million. Hence before my business starts, I have already sunk in RM9 million. Perhaps, the TAS can incorporate one finance company so that it can lend money to subprime borrowers? No? But why?

I challenge Dato Lias of PKNP to give the details of the 7 companies which have invested into this industrial park. They are Vantech Dockyard, Tec-Steel Manufacturing Sdn Bhd, Usatech Marine (M) Sdn Bhd, Bitari Abadi Sdn Bhd, Core Competencies Sdn Bhd, Competent Selection Sdn Bhd and Damini Corporation Sdn Bhd. How much money have they sunk into this project as equity?

Who are these people? Come on, don't be shy. If not I will repeat what I first said in the Dewan Undangan Negeri- lets close down PKNP.

Speaking at the event, Najib said the industrial park was consistent with the government’s policies and efforts, adding that its strategic location in the east coast would strengthen the viability of the development and spearhead more economic benefits for the region.

“As this maritime park matures and is fully occupied by the target industries and companies, the entire area will be rendering a critical service to the oil and gas and petrochemical industry,” he said.

Najib also said the bulk of basic infrastructure for the development project would be undertaken by the government through the East Coast Economic Region Development Corporation (ECERDC).

Dato' Sak,
It seemed the matter has been agreed upon as another mean of amassing another war chest for the next GE. There is nothing much for people like you or me can do about it.
A change of government maybe good for Malaysia.

Salam Datuk,

I was directed here by Zorro.

When I first read about this in the papers, I just laughed. Deja vu and what have you. I smell rats like in PKFZ and wish Pahangites all the luck. But I sokong Pak Zawi when he says we need a change of govt, there is no other way.
