And to his friend, he said: Ask, and you shall be given. The value of Datuk Seri-ship is about to change. Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan, according to my sources in Penang, is on the list for the Darjah Gemilang Pangkuan Negeri (DGPN), which carries the title Datuk Seri.
This will be his third datukship: in 2001 he was given the Darjah Setia Pangkuan Negeri by the Penang State governor. His second came from the state of Kelantan.
He does not deserve it but that's my view. Someone in Putrajaya thinks Kalimullah has done enough for Penang and its people to get the title next week in conjunction with the official birthday of State Governor Tun Rahman Abbas.
Oops (at 11.39am, 9 June) .. Actually, Kalimullah got a title from the state of Perak recently. My apologies. So the Penang title will be his fourth!
