KL, Wesak Day: Well, I'm not sure if the Sultan of Selangor is willing to get his hands dirty but the 2,000-strong union at Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad wants him, nonetheless, to back them in their fight against tycoon Desmond Lim's takeover bid of Subang, one of the few lucrative airports run by MAHB.
Basically, the trade union leader Encik Husin Shahar says as seeing that the nobody in the government is standing up against the proposal by Desmond to run Subang till 2092, or thereabout, the union feels it has to resort to a "higher" force to stop the bid even as it tries to get the Prime Minister, through a rare memorandum, to step in.
The only airport in the country that isn't managed by MAHB is Senai in Johor, which is now owned and managed by tycoon Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary. We know that the Sultan of Johor was never happy with this but Dr Mahathir Mohamad, when he was Prime Minister, went ahead and took the Senai airport from MAHB and gave it to Syed Mokhtar, anyway.
But that's Johor and this is Selangor ...
