“Return Penang Port to the people of Penang run by Penang”, in statement issued by Penang Chief Minister’s Office to some of he resolutions send by various parties with regards to the privatization of Penang Port by Seaport Terminal Sdn.Bhd., a Johor based company.
All and well. These are some of opposition, being drummed up by DAP controlled Penang State Government to the privatization of a port which has a lot of potential. The bidding party of this privatization has shown tremendous performance with their Port of Tanjung Pelepas, which has now manage to compete against the Post of Singapore and handle 1/5th operations and TEUs of one of the top five world’s most busiest port.
Our “Thirteen Million Ringgit Plus question” to Penang Chief Minister’s Office and Officials:
Is the Penang Chief Minister a Penangite in the first place?
Isn’t he a Johor Bahru born bloke, whose father hails from Batu Pahat?
So if Seaport Terminal’s bid for Penang Port privatization is unacceptable because “They are not Penang company run by Penangites”, shouldn’t the same principle apply to YAB Lim Guan Eng and other Non Penangites like Prof P Ramasamy, Jeff Ooi too?
