RM200,000 for the Indian NGOs?

The Malaysian Insider reported that Dr Zambry blamed the opposition for picking on BN’s weaknesses instead of its strengths. I believe that the Pakatan Rakyat government could have done much more if not for the unethical and unlawful power grab by the BN in Perak as compared to BN (in 50 years) as one can see for the last few months when PR was in power. PR is well accepted by the people not only in Perak but throughout Malaysia. PR obtained 56% of the votes in Perak during the general election in 2008. They garnered stronger support in the Permatang Pauh, Kuala Terengganu and Bukit Gantang by-elections. PR may not have solved all the problems faced by the people but what the PR government could do was acceptable and people are well pleased.

Dr Zambry also announced an allocation of RM200,000.00 for all the 157 Indian’s NGOs in Perak at the Perak Indian NGOs Consultative Convention in Sungai Siput today. Every NGO will get RM1,273.88 –One thousand two hundred seventy three Ringgit Malaysia and eighty eight cents. These are only crumbs under the table. What is there to shout about?
