  • There are leaders question the purchase bcos Johor increase the assessment rate and other rates substantially. Timing is very important what leaders are doing. No sense of prudence in hard time complaining insufficient budget yet can buy expensive cars. Do like Penang and Selangor, make the money first then buying what they deserve. A good PH leader will question whenever necessary and appropriate.

  • Public must start questioning leaders for what they are utilizing public fund. Like this case, if I were the MB, I will postpone the purchase until the state financial position is more stable. They just don't care, after all its govt money. Next round voters must know what leaders to vote for.
