PDC to handle housing fund

February 2nd, 2012 Leave a comment

THE state government’s fund for affordable housing will be managed and implemented by the Penang Development Corpo- ration (PDC).

Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the PDC would ensure that the RM500mil was used to build affordable units for the lower income group in the state.

“This is the largest amount ever allocated by any state government in the country for this purpose.

“It was decided during the state exco meeting today that the fund would be handled by the PDC, which is part of the state government,” he said.

Lim, who is PDC chairman, said the fund was from the Bayan Mu-tiara privatisation project conducted via an open tender.

He added that the state government had rejected the previous administration’s plan to move the administration centre from Komtar to Bayan Mutiara when it took over in 2008.

“Building a new administrative centre would have caused between RM600mil and RM800mil.

“We wanted to use the money for social projects that can benefit the people — like affordable housing,” he said during the PDC Chinese New Year open house in George Town yesterday.

Lim said a total of 11,596 affor-dable homes costing between RM42,000 and RM72,500 had so far been approved by the state government.

After the event, some 20 state Pemuda Pakatan Rakyat members presented Lim with an invitation to a debate.

An official invitation was also sent to Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop’s service centre in Tasek Gelugor.

Organised by the group, the debate titled ‘Abolishing expressway toll would bankrupt the country’ is scheduled for Feb 29 at the Seberang Prai Municipal Council hall in Sungai Dua, Tasek Gelugor.

State DAP Socialist Youth (Dapsy) secretary Ng Wei Aik, who is also Komtar assemblyman and the chief minister’s political secretary, said Lim would accept the invitation.

“Pemuda is organising this debate between the two leaders so that the rakyat can hear for themselves the arguments for and against the abolishing of expressway toll fares for concessionaires that have made huge profits.

“We have given Nor Mohamed a week to respond to the challenge and hope that he will accept it,” he said.

    敬爱的佛教信土:
    我是甲洞三宝寺 (暹廟) SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST ASSOCIATION NO: 19-21 JALAN 38 TAMAN DESA JAYA KEPONG 52100 KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA. 的理事, 当任此职多年, 对内的事務也一清二楚。

    最近, 在网络上看了PHRA PIYATHAMMO和尚和马华公会鸱唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的双方信件, 使我的内心久久不能平伏, 良心受到很大的譴責, 不吐訢不痛快, 所以我要誠恳的説:他叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)侓师叫外来的流流氓到三宝寺(暹廟)挑衅和尚打架及电招警方人员扣捕沙彌, 其嘲笑手法, 不外是要显示其权力, 而鞏固其职位, 以达到权力就是一切, 好让住持难堪, 自动離开, 方便行事……这种举动, 已间接的表逹其含意, 住持和尚兼顾问, 都无能为力,你们这些信徒能做什么?即使告马耒西亜佛教总会又能为难什么?这种心态, 的硧令人反感, 不是一个正信佛教者应有的行为。

    至今, 三宝寺的理事成员多数是其親戚, 这是实事, 加入会员需交RM100元费用,同时,必须经过叶金福(Yip Kum Fook)律师的同意,否则免談, 所以会员也不多。

    马华公会鹅唛区主席叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师,自控制三宝寺之後,把三宝寺(暹廟)当着私人產業,聘用和尚賺钱,利用佛教的道地为政治活动埸所,而处理三宝寺的钱财也不透明?这点,值得信众追问。马来西亚地擴人多,和尚也不缺乏,为什么不用本地和尚当任住持化缘,却偏偏劳心劳神,浪费签证费,交通费? 还要烦劳梹城佛总的推荐信, 向文化不同, 而語言又不通之千哩外囯缅旬和尚求助? 为什么….为什么? 只要我们用头脑想一想,便一日了然, 不必晝虎添足。

    叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师说:欢迎任何人如有意见,可以电话03:62762369/0122039700 Email: YIPKUMFOOK@HOTMAIL.COM 戓到其马华公会鹅唛区会甲洞三宝寺及以下地圵:NO.2,B JALAN 53 TAMAN DESA JAYA KEPONG 52100 SELANGOR, MALAYSIA.討論, 我要老实的提醒大家, 最好不要一个去見他, 因为这个人狡滑, 笑裡藏刀, 很阴险, 出家人都不放在眼裡, 連TAMAN DAYA 52100 KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR. 众人的印度廟也敢放火燒, 利用权势把场地佔为己有, 由此可见, 他是何等的心毒? 还有现在三宝寺内, 各处都按裝计孔监视来人一举一动。

    目前, 三宝寺很多信徒及当地居民, 已经对叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak )律师不满, 但也不能做什么。他计划把三宝寺主席的职位轉给其子YIP JIUN HANN律师, 续承皇朝. 想近一部了觧詳情, 可上网得知。

    再说, 根据前理事在网络上给叶金福(Yip Kum Fook, MCA Gombak)律师的批評, 説他懂得包裝自己的道德守则, 以宗教为幌子手, 到处募款, 啇業经营, 政治活动为重, 并没依循佛教守則行事, 也没对人道作出貢献, 只不过借三宝寺宗教之名捞取权和私利而己, 其言也不为过, 是实事。

    在此, 我恳切希望, 廣大的佛教信仰者, 给予关注, 并共創義举, 弘扬佛教. 谢谢。

    Mr Lim Sok Chia敬啟
    Ms Yap
