DAPSY challenges BN Youth to send “fake award” memo to those federal government GLCs and universities. Kindly not to forget about the trophy to be presented as well as a symbolic gesture to condemn those entity under federal government, who have also been receiving the fake award.
The Penang state BN Youth led by H’ng Chee Way was clearly practising double standards policy where he never reacted dramatically nor even mentioned that federal GLCs or federal entities such as Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB), Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM), Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), Universiti Teknikal Malaysia (UTeM), Universiti Malaysia Perlis UniMAP), including private university, Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UniTAR) had also received the fake award from EBA in the past. Not to mention, FRIM is under the purview of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
The Prime Minister Najib had even congratulated the Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) openly for receiving the top three awards from EBA, which has been reported by media on 26 December 2013. If such incident of receiving a fake award is something so embarrassing like what BN youth told to press, so are Barisan Nasional, where our beloved Prime Minister never condemn the said university for receiving the fake awards, and yet congratulate them!
DAPSY Penang condemns BN youth for not reacting the same like what they did when they finally realised that both the local councils in DAP-led state are not the only EBA award winner from Malaysia. BN youth dares not question back the federal government and BN-led states who have also been awarded by EBA.
The Penang State government has responded to the allegation the very minute it came to public attention, and the Mayor of City Council of Penang Island has also called up a press conference to apologize and clarify the whole incident immediately she is back in Penang and promised that the local council will be more careful in future to prevent repeating case happens.
However on the other hand, we do not see any BN leaders nor any federal agency spokesman to respond and apologize publicly when news reported that numbers of public university, federal GLC and institute are also the awardees under EBA.
Taking DAP-led Penang State Government as good example, DAPSY Penang urges Barisan Nasional to hide no more, but to face the issue by telling the public how much did those federal entities spend to be awarded by EBA.
By putting words back to Penang BN Youth, “This will certainly undermine the confidence of foreign investors because the credibility of the whole nation has been tainted too! So what are the ‘damage control’ measures taken by the federal government and BN youth wings other than practising double standards in this incident?”, DAPSY Penang advises Penang BN Youth to stop the deaf-blind culture, proving BN is not double standards for public accountability.
