Penang Ex-Adun’s plea to the state government to make SRS’ PTMP Proposal Public

Penang Ex-Adun’s plea to the state government to make SRS’ PTMP Proposal Public


I think that it is very worrisome that up
until now when I look at the penang master plan website the full master plan
that was submitted by Gamuda is not yet uploaded they give you enough
information to make you think that you know but actually you don’t know there
is only skimming the surface without the information of what exactly are the
plans that’s why we have this situation now where it can be very confusing
because the information is not out there how did they decide to run an LRT
whether or not you agree the people of Penang can support this system whether or not you agree the highway is necessary actually we don’t have that information
the information is in the Gamuda proposal but the information is not made
public the information on how we plan how the original plan was to pay for the
transport system is in the tender documents but it is not made public if
we are talking about a new Malaysia we need to start thinking and believing in
our people the people who put Harapan in in the first place we need to trust
that the people are mature enough to be able to read your documents and we need
to admit that we may be a very good government but we are only human how
knowledgeable are our staff and the many many many many as expertise that is inside transport master plan is the Pakatan government in Penang and our
civil service so superhuman that we know for sure that we are so able to protect
the future of Penang that we will keep this master plan secret is it the right
thing to do that your download master plan button in your website actually
downloads the Halcrow master plan only the executive summary of the Halcrow
master plan not even the full Halcrow master plan and you continue to keep the
Gamuda master plan secret is it right that when the Gamuda master plan was put on display that people were only allowed to go during office hours it was not
available online hand phones and cameras were not allowed if everything is above
board it will be the perfect solution to solve them the transport situation in
Penang then why don’t we make it open what is wrong with publishing the full
SRS consortium proposal so that all the people of Penangites no need to be confused anymore it is fully out there they can everyone can read it and debate
amongst themselves it’s not just the government and SRS debating
against the public or debating against NGOs make it open and let all of us
share your burden in delivering Penang’s future and we hope that the government
will do their part in making that information public my message to them is to be confident enough to be open to allow the people of Penang to help you
to help you ensure that we are really not a developer action party let us make
sure that future of Penang is not only dictated by developers
