|The real heroes|
Well, well, well, YB Tony Pua seems to have rediscovered his voice (Kudos to Francis Yeoh´s ...). Pua was so quiet when YTL and royal partner SIPP got the power project via negotiated tender from the Energy Commission. By right, he should have immediatley condemned not just the EC and SIPP but also YTL Power - even TNB - over the negotiated tender. But especially YTL because of what Francis Yeoh said about crony capitalism.
I have to say |I´m not surprised that Pua is all praise for Francis Yeoh again (read my Feb 19 posting Tony Pua a YES man) and out to get the EC and Putrajaya now that YTL has come out to say it was opting out of the deal ¨¨to dispel any misgivings over the government´s commitment towards transparency and good governance¨¨. Right on cue.
Tony Pua is trying to make YTL look like the hero. Well, YB, let me tell you something: you can´t fool all the people all the time.
I agree, the EC has a lot to explain; in my posting h e r e I asked if someone at the EC was resigning over this scandal. But make no mistake about it: YTL Power is no hero in this scandal. If we really need a hero here, then we should salute the trade union leaders at TNB who fought against the attempt to get their company involved in what they saw as an unholy alliance (read h e r e).
