Is Wong Koon Mun an UMNO spokeman when he mentioned that there is nothing wrong for BN component parties to get cheap lands from the State Government?
Worst still when he said in a press conference on Friday that the lands alienated to BN component parties were meant for community purposes when the 24 pieces of lands are all commercial lands and are only meant for commercial activities.
Wong Koon Mun even made a joke out of himself when he claimed that BN component parties should be getting cheap lands from the State Government as BN component parties like UMNO, MCA and MIC fought for the independence of the nation and they needs lands during the early days of independence to carry out community activities, when the lands are actually given to UMNO, MCA and MIC between 1981 to 2008 (a piece of land in Sungai Way New Village was given to UMNO Petaling Jaya in 1981).
And how is Wong Koon Mun going to explain the fact that Gerakan also got a piece of land in Puchong? What role had Gerakan ever played in fighting for independence for Malaya in 1957?
The mind-boggling reason that UMNO who fought for the country’s independence should be given cheap land was first suggested by UMNO Assemblyman for Kuang, Abdul Shukor Idrus when he stood up and interjected the speech of DAP Assemblyman for Sekinchan, Ng Suee Lim on 20th November 2012.
By reiterating and supporting the same reason, Wong Koon Mun is not making himself one of the biggest laughing stock in town but he is also implying that he is willing to be UMNO spokeman on this issue, conveniently ignoring the hard fact that the 24 pieces of lands were never meant for any community activities but were commercial lands alienated to UMNO, MIC, MCA and Gerakan to enrich their party’s coffer!
Before pointing his fingers to others, Wong Koon Mun should also answer why MCA continues to occupy a hall in Bukit Chandang new village at Batang Kali and refuses to return it to land office? The hall is actually built on a Public Works Department reserve land and there is no way such reserve land can be occupied by anybody.
Hulu Selangor Land Office has been serving warning letters and notices to MCA Hulu Selangor to vacate and surrender the hall to the authority but all the notices have fallen on deaf ear. The Land Office has also been very lenient against these law-breakers but MCA should not take things for granted.
MCA had even turned the hall into an operation centre during the 2010 Hulu Selangor by-election and removed Selangor State Government emblem by putting up party flags as if the premise is owned by MCA. As law maker, I urge Wong Koon Mun to set an example and he shall immediately return the premise to the authority.
