my take on Johor Super Corridor?
Welcome back, MEGA projects!
Watch out, Pak Lah. Just as they went after Dr M for the Twin towers, Putrajaya, KL International Airport, Sepang International Circuit, Multimedia Super Corridor, the Penang bridge, monorail/LRT, North-South Highway, etc. , the foreign news wires, the IMF, foreign analysts, and the sceptics in general are going to go after you for this mega Johor Super Corridor project of yours.
The papers didn't use the word MEGA, though. BIG, BIGGEST, HUGE, MASSIVE .. but not MEGA. Looks like "MEGA" is Dr M's copyright.
So how MEGA is this big JSC project?
Well, it's bigger than many of the mega projects were were used to under Dr M. We are talking here about, among other things:
RM15 billion immediately waiting to come pumping in from foreign investors
One million jobs in the next 20 years
10,000 hectares of prime land, twice the size of neighbouring Singapore
BIG push for Johor tourism
The PM has many good reasons to be proud of the project.
"Let me stress that this is my idea. It did not come from anyone else. It is my own vision and plan to create this super corridor in south Johor to make it the nation’s premier growth centre," he was quoted by NST as saying.

"Let me stress that this is my idea. It did not come from anyone else. It is my own vision and plan to create this super corridor in south Johor to make it the nation’s premier growth centre," he was quoted by NST as saying.) - WHY STRESS THIS POINT?
THE WHOLE IDEA WAS 'PICKED UP' FROM THE PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION'S PLAN FOR SOUTHERN JOHOR. ASK GHANI OTHMAN IF YOU WANNA BE SURE. EVEN SHAHRIR KNEW OF THE PREVIOUS PLAN UNDER DR.MAHATHIR.
I don't know how to react now ... to laugh or cry for Malaysia.
Bro, any idea what happened to the "report cards' which Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was supposed to check and sign? If I'm not mistaken the report cards were supposed to be submitted by all MP.ReplyDelete
Is the "smart' Abdullah still checking the MPs performance or has this "job" been contracted out to KJ & Gang?
It is not our "mega" project it will be Singapore's, it is now official that this project will become an official de facto extension of Singapore. If you cant take it forcefuly, you do it by other mean and the island republic has done it but not without the help of some traitors. Yes, Pak Lah was in Singapore recently and I am sure he was given the final instruction on how to spin the announcement, well done! And no, Sultan of Johore is not happy with the project as reported. And yes it is a sad day for Johoreans and Malaysians in general that we are definitely not in control of our destiny, sad so very sad! Yes Rocky the disease is gettng very serious, and amputations is the only way! May God bless us!
Why do I have to tell people I have a large endowment? It should be the people, after they have seen it, after they have witnessed that I mean business that I can do business, that should know it. You know, branding by reference. Branding by word-of-mouth.ReplyDelete
Did Tun M said Vision 2020 "my vision"? He said our collective vision. It did not even start as Vision 2020. It started as The Way Forward. It was the late Noorordin Sophie and AKJ who came up with the tagline.ReplyDelete
Mega project, massive project, biggest project, hugest project... does it matter?
What matters is the economy and the well being of the rakyat. Bravo Pak Lah. More original Pak Lah please!
Hey this is cool news! As a Johorean, I should balek kampong and make it big!ReplyDelete
Sebagai pemimpin Islam dan Melayu, apatah lagi yang berlatarbelakang agama dan daripada keluarga ulama, tak eloklah jika Perdana Menteri mendabik dada mengatakan itu dan ini original idea beliau.ReplyDelete
Kalau Korodor Raya Selatan idea ori Pak Lah, pembatalan Projek Tambak Johor idea ori siapa? Idea ori Pak Lah jugakah?
Janganlah pilih yang elok-elok untuk mengaku ia idea ori Pak Lah, tapi serah yang najis-najis untuk orang lain tanggung dan bersihkan. Ini bukan pemimpin Islam.
Kalau Pak Lah ori, peruntukan RMK9 tahun ini bukan RM20 bilion tapi RM40b sebab kesemua petuntukan RMK9 RM200b. Jadi setahun RM40b. Fasal pelaksanaan RMK9 lewat setengah tahun, maka peruntukan purata setahun sekarang bukan lagi RM40b tapi RM44.4b setahun.
Kalau Pak Lah ori dan Pak Lah pemimpin ulama, Pak Lah kenalah juga adakan Koridor Raya Utara supaya orang Islam Siam boleh datang Malaysia tumpang cari makan. Jadi tak lah habis kena bunuh. Kalau ori nak setakat majukan Johor yang dekat dengan Singapore, bukanlah ori sangat! Dr Mahathir, Mahyuddin dan Ghani dah lama buat. Dah ada macam-macam -- Pasir Gudang, Tanjung Pelepas, Tanjung Bin, Semai dan macam-macam lagi. Yang batalkan projek zaman Mahathir bukan orang lain tapi Pak Lah. Kalau begitulah hebat koridor selatan Pak Lah, kenalah mulakan balik Projek Tambak Johor supaya orang Singapura boleh mai melawat!
Terima kasih Pak Lah. Bila-bila mai belah ni, nana bawak pi kena mee udang batu maung dengan derian balik pulau.
- WHY STRESS THIS POINT?
This is a statement by a desperate PM whose image has gone down the drain.
Masuk bakul, angkat diri sendiri.
Itu pun, it aint his own idea.
Temberang, temberang, temberang!

"...Maaf tetapi saya tidak pernah mendengar ucapan mana-mana PM sebelum ini yang mengaku bahawa satu-satu projek atau cadangan itu adalah cetusan ideanya sendiri. Orang lain yang menganggap demikian ada, tetapi tuan punya badan sendiri yang mengaku, seingat saya tak pernah pun didengari.
Mengapa Dollah perlu isytihar pada orang ramai bahawa projek SJER itu ideanya sendiri? Mengapa tidak cukup sekadar memaklumkan bahwa ia idea kerajaan sebagaimana biasa?
Pasti beliau terdesak berbuat demikian selaku raksi terhadap tuduhan Tun bahawa beliau selama ini seorang PM yang lemah dan banyak bergantung kepada bantuan dan input menantunya Khairy Jamaluddin. Oleh itu Dollah telah memilih untuk mengambil pendekatan pre emptive dan terpaksa mengangkat dan menonjol dirinya dengan harapan selepas ini jangan tuduh beliau lemah, half past six dan no guts lagi.
Saya sendiri tak tahulah samada kita perlu bersimpati dengan Dollah ataupun menyorokkan wajah kita kerana malu melihatkan pemimpin nombor satu negara terpaksa angkat bakul naik lift?!"

hmm, stressing that it is his idea is like a man saying in a boardroom of people that it is his idea when everyone knows that it was a project that was tabled way before his time and the board meeting is only scheduled now when he is at the helm...so...please lah...this is "trop petit" to comment....ReplyDelete
