PWD to explain. The DPM said yesterday the Public Works Department will be asked to explain to Cabinet this Wednesday why the Parliament's roof was not repaired when the department spent RM90 million to renovate the august House just two years ago."The expenditure .. should have taken into account problems like the leaking roof .. During the submission (for allocations) there was no request to repair the roof. So we are wondering how come it escaped our attention," Najib said when responding to Works Minister S. Samy Vellu.Samy, who once even blamed God for a major catastrophe under his ministry (and got away with it), said last Thursday: "As an architect, I can tell you that the present condition is severe. We must dismantle the whole structure and build it again with the waterproofing equipment .. If the roof of the Parliament House is leaking we have no choice but to repair it because Parliament is a very important institution for the country."

I am just wondering why it's the PWD and not Samy who is being asked to explain the RM90 million leak. And is no one angry and upset with him?
