Khalid: Yes, I wanted to be the YBK BOSS


But (again I have to ask), wasn't that BLACKMAIL, Tan Sri? Those who accused The Malay Mail of fabrication and a la RPK spin with its cover yesterday (pic), quietly go to one corner and read below the Press release issued by the Selangor Menteri Besar today in response to our report yesterday.

Khalid admits he wanted the Chair.

He said it's for the sake of transparency. The state government gave YBK the land and he wanted to make sure the foundation is run efficiently, no hanky-panky, etc.

But isn't his job as MB to run the state, not an NGO?
Did his government give YBK the land?
Was there NO transparency in the way YBK was run?
Was the YBK not acting "responsibly" before?

The Paper That Cares ran an FAQ on the Serendah scandal today, which even answers some questions asked in this blog by my commenters: Q&A: What you need to know about the UiTM campus controversy. It also has this story today:


Now, the press release, in full.

[And just so you know, the YBK is calling for a press conference tomorrow morning].

For minutes of the meeting where Khalid's demand to be YBK Boss was made, go H E R E.

KENYATAAN MEDIA

PENGLIBATAN KERAJAAN NEGERI DALAM YBK AKAN JAMIN KETELUSAN


SHAH ALAM : Keputusan Kerajaan Negeri Selangor untuk mengambil bahagian dalam operasi Yayasan Basmi Kemiskinan (YBK) adalah untuk memastikan ketelusan dan kebertanggungjawaban dalam mengurus tadbir sumber negeri yang diserahkan kepada yayasan tersebut.

Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri telah membuat keputusan pada 20 Oktober lalu untuk melantik dua wakil daripada kerajaan negeri supaya duduk di dalam Lembaga Pengarah YBK dan berpendapat Dato’ Menteri Besar perlu dilantik sebagai pengerusi YBK dan sementara Exco Selangor yang memegang portfolio kebajikan dilantik sebagai anggota lembaga.

Keputusan ini diambil kerana kerajaan negeri khuatir dengan masalah ketelusan dalam memastikan sumber kewangan yayasan itu diurus tadbir dengan baik dan memberi manafaat kepada golongan miskin di Selangor. Sumber kewangan ini termasuk 448 ekar tanah di Serendah.

Memandangkan kerajaan negeri telah memberi tapak tanah yang nilainya berjuta ringgit kepada yayasan tersebut, kami perlu memastikan orang miskin di Selangor mendapat faedah daripada penggunaan tanah tersebut. Ini bukan keputusan bermotif politik, tetapi satu langkah untuk memastikan sumber negeri diuruskan dengan telus dan bertanggungjawaban,” kata Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Khalid berkata kerajaan negeri boleh mengambil bahagian dalam entiti bukan kerajaan yang menerima dana kerajaan. “Ini bukan konsep baru. Persatuan Bola Sepak Selangor juga bukan satu entity kerajaan tapi ianya dipengerusikan oleh Menteri Besar juga menerima dana kerajaan.”

Tambah Khalid lagi, pembabitan kerajaan negeri tidak akan mengganggu program membasmi kemiskinan di Selangor yang dijalankan oleh yayasan tersebut. “Melalui kerjasama semua pihak, kami akan bertambah baik dan akan wujud ‘check and balance’. Malah dengan pembabitan Kerajaan Negeri, kami boleh memberi lebih banyak sumber kepada yayasan itu,” kata Menteri Besar.

Kerajaan negeri berharap isu ini tidak akan dipolitikan lagi kerana keputusan telahpun dibuat atas dasar kepentingan rakyat Selangor.

You can write anything you want. But the public knows your agenda. The Malay Mail's rebirth was premised on one target. And that target was the Selangor Pakatan government. Enough of lies and deceit. The Malay Mail became trash when Kadir Jasin took over. It has become trashier ever since. Now it wont qualify as a toilet paper. Go on spreading lies, but the public are smart enough to detect a fake when they see one.

Khalid wants that chairmanship......Ah so what's the problem. Your beloved Mahathir got Petronas chairmanship

Habib RAK said...

Rocky, you asked,"Did his government give YBK the land?" No, it was given during the time of BN government headed by Mohamed Taib. The point is as stated in MB Khalid Ibrahim's press statement, they are desirous to ensure transparency and accountability. Isnt such good aspirations good for the State as well for the people? Im still trying to figure out any bad faith or ill intentions here by the current MB. Perhaps the investigative team could provide more revealing info into what is the concern. Cheers.

Republican Reds said...

That's what I called transperency and accountability, he admitted that he did want to be the chairman and willing to be accountable for making such statement holding on to his stand that by doing so will be good for transperency of the NGO eventhough it might be damaging to his political standing(while making sure the money does not go elsewhere).That's leadership not like UMNO flip-flop, just look at the issue of those jet engines,instead of being accountable and transparent Zahid Hamidi gave excuses like it's not 50 million,the deal was an old deal back in the 70s instead of accepting the fact that there's a weakness in the defence ministry that alowed such a thing to happen and that he'll correct it.Congratulations Khalid,as a Selangorian I'm proud that we took a stand against corruption and boot out that UMNO MB(he still doesn't what to admit that he's corrupt even though there's pictures of him going to Disneyland on state money back by admission of one of the civil servants involved in approving the fund,talk about dishonesty).

donplaypuks® said...

Bro

I repeat, MB Khalid is not stealing land to build a $24 million mansion or asking for $5 million a year gaji buta chairmanship or for fancy million $ taxpayer funded trips to Disneyland and bellydancing junkets to Egypt or Morocco!!

It's incredible is it not that 3 UMNO nominees should be appointed YBK Trustees for 1,600 acres of the PEOPLE's land given it FREE for poverty alleviation in Selangor, but the Selangor State administration SHOULD NOT oversee that there is no corruption and there is accountability and transparency?

And what are the qualifications of these Trustees that the Rakyat should place their trust in them? Pray tell us.

After the rape, pillage and plunder that has taken place in Selangor in particular between 1981-March 2008, I, like many, am glad Khalid has 'turun padang' and taken a hands on approach to governing instead of whiling away his hours 'tempe' beautifying his face like someone we know who is now apparently in mourning.

What do you want? Another PKFZ, Perwaja or $540 million "not a commission" submarine scandal to surface or that proper independent oversight committees should be in place from the beginning to nip corruption in the bud?

Prevention is always better than cure!!

Setahu umum, ahli2 YBK sekarang ni semuanya kaki UMNO, tahulah saje siapa tu UMNO....kalau tak buat projek kelentong itu bukan UMNO namanya !!

Harap Kerajaan PR Selangor dapat sekat ke semua projek kelentong UMNO di Selangor.

ROC,
Deep in your heart you know why Khalid wanted that post! Umno time is up and RM 300 mill is alot of money!The landbank is also worth alot!You serious lah that they will be no hanky panky when there is umno involvement !
It's only right the MB have a final say!Who was the last MB that gave that land so freely???Dont tell me he did it out of compassion for the love of the poor! It,s craps man !
Be serious lah! When we have an MB who is trying to be transparent you are trying to shoot him down.
The way you are doing it so openly shows a hidden agenda and its all for us to see your slant!
Anyway hurrah!! for Khalid and the pakatans!They are beginning to rule honestly not like that guy who lavish on a 20 mill bali castle!
No perception here but real truth!Anytime we selangoreans prefer this pakatans than those umno pukis!!!

bujai said...

bro,

first, let see the course of action to be taken by the MACC against the reports.

second, let khalid provide more answers as what he issued today was not making any sense rather that full of bulls!

third, let the rakyat who supported him during the last polls re-evaluate his position as a mentri besar, and

fourth, let the court (should the MACC files a case against him) decides his fate.

this is a leader of cronyism and hegemony. the late saddam hussein was a similar leader who imposed such rulings not only on local businesses but also foreign-owned. golda meir was such too.

why on earth did he want that position. transparency can be observed from many directions. khalid instead can install one of his officers at the company. frequent reports on its progress can always be attained at any time on his request. he used to be an PNB and Guthrie and he didnt take much time to get it from subsidiaries.

i dont think he's greedy. what i personally perceive from this is that, he could be doing it for someone else... possible, dont you think so?

Anonymous said...

Rocky,
the truth will prevail. My salute to PKR Secretary General Dato Salehudin who just resigned. Reasons? Because he can smell rots in MB move on Talam debts decisions and Kumpulan Semesta sand scandal. Some said that there is no transperancy in the deals, no details provided and is not business wise.

The people of Selangor want Khalid to be the YBK boss for one simple reason: To prevent abuse of power which turned Selangor into one big joke. The Malay Mail, otherwise known as MACC Suara Rakyat, wants Umno to take charge of the corporation. Good luck to them. In the meantime, I urge the people to stop reading trash, even though it is free.

GAGAL PATUHI SPESIFIKASI PUNCA STADIUM RUNTUH - malaysiakini

Bahan dan kualiti hasil kerja yang tidak memenuhi spesifikasi dikenal pasti antara punca utama struktur bumbung kerangka Stadium Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin, Terengganu, runtuh Jun tahun lepas.

Menurut laporan jawatankuasa siasatan kejadian itu, faktor reka bentuk yang tidak memadai, bumbung yang tidak dibina dengan sempurna dan kawalan kualiti yang tidak dilaksanakan di tapak projek turut menyumbang kepada kejadian tersebut.

Menteri Kerja Raya Shaziman Abu Mansor yang mendedahkan laporan jawatankuasa siasatan itu hari ini berkata, siasatan juga mendapati pengawasan yang agak kurang ketika kerja-kerja pembinaan selain dilakukan secara tergesa-gesa turut menjejaskan kualiti stadium berkenaan.

Yes, Mahathir is Petronas Chairman and he is a retired PM. TS Khalid is a serving MB and definately have a lot of other things to do. Why not let others run YBK. Anyway, YBK has been able to be run by the present management team for almost 20 years.

TS khalid intimidated YBK to agree with his proposal.
'If you do give in, I don't let you to go ahead with your ptoject". Hei, isn't that a clear cut intimidation by the power of the day?

In the MB's office media statement, TS Khalid claimed that the names he had proposed shall be in the board to represent their posts rather than individual. Janganlah kelentong TS. Please read again the minute of the meeting to discuss this issue dated 14/10/2009.

As the effected party, YBK has the right to seek legal redress. Let it be known that no government, I said it again NO government or any power of the day can do anything they fancy on to others. All of us should be accoutable to our actions. Go ahead YBK, let see how TS Khakid defend himself!

1. Khalid Ibrahim is as transparent as the RM64.7million that he owed Bank Islam which he did not tell the public when he became Menteri Besar of Selangor.

2. Do not forget about the round tripping exercise involving Talam Corporation by Khalid Ibrahim to show that the Selangor State Government income is better than its Budget 2008. By the way exPKR Secretary General who is no small time businessman himself wrote an email to PKR members about this and used the words "This is an old trick used by the crooks in the corporate sector." That's right Salehuddin used the word crook to describe Khalid Ibrahim's maneuvering. Definitely not something that a transparent person would do.

3. and dpp dan sewaktu dengan, the "tempe" which you used to derogatorily describe Dr Khir, his BN Government left at least RM1.4BILLION in the state coffer before the loose coalition of PKR,DAP and PAS took over OK.

The Pakatan State Government budget 2009 is RM1.9 Billion and it is expected to have an income of only RM1Billion this year so deficit is RM0.9billion. So how to find the money? Takeover YBK and another round of maneuvering to have its projected hundreds of millions of revenue shown as income for the Selangor Government?

4. Khalid Ibrahim should concentrate on getting more income he promised from the sand revenue and getting more Investments into the state and leave the YBK to do what they have been doing for decades way before PKR came into being to help the poor.

ps. Menteri Besar's are traditionally elected as YangdiPertua of the State Football Association that is nothing new. But what is strange is a menteri Besar wanting and forcing an NGO to accept him as Chairman, that is perverse and new.

Anonymous said...

His explanation sounds reasonable.

Now Rocky, what is your agenda?

Given how these UMNO "charities" (lets not kid ourselves about BN since these organisations are 100% Malay) are run, I think it is valid for Tan Sri MB to take control.

Anyway Rocky, why no news on your Mamak friend up north and his RM400m law suit? I believe that is a national record in terms of amount for a politician.

Also, thanks to some numbskulls this morning, UMNO's "fixed deposit" is about to walk away.

Prima facie, there is no problem with the MB's statement, as the reason is given as to safe-guard public interest. I think the language used in that statement is very clear - unless people don't understand Bahasa Melayu...

Nevertheless, apart from the language, I understand there are some folks who are not satisfied with the MB's statement.

I think what Rocky should do is to ask the MB or his representative to hold a dialogue on this matter, so that this issue can be resolved amicably. Or at least that dialogue will allow people to voice out all of their concerns.

Finally, Rocky may also want to blog on how should the MB and the Selangor state govt SHOULD resolve this issue. That will be a great posting for you, Rocky!!!

Dear Anon who wrote,

"rocky,did you read the minutes that you have attached?

--------------

Anon,
There are two sets of minutes. The first one 1 Okt where the chairman of the meeting, Dato Arif Rahman, said the MB wanted:
1. the Sultan of Selangor to be made the Patron of YBK
2. Raja Arshad Raja Uda be made Chairman of the YBK and
3. Two reps from the state govt be appointed to the board of YBK

The second set of minutes are from a 14 Okt meeting, chaired by Hassan Ali. This time, the MB's demands were:

1. Make Raja Arshad, NOT Sultan of Selangor, the Patron
2. Make him (the MB) Chairman of YBK
3. Appoint three (NOT two) reps from the state govt to the Board of Directors of YBK

Both meetings held that if YBK agreed to the conditions and demands, the paper on approval for the UiTM Serendah project will be taken up.

If the YBK did not agree, it was to stop work on the Serendah project.

Thank you.
