PDRM Spend RM15 Million For Kuala Terengganu By-Election
February 18, 2009 14:42 PM
KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 18 (Bernama) — The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) spent RM15.153 million for deployment of personnel for the recent Kuala Terengganu by-election, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.
Deputy Home Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung said the cost incurred was higher compared with that spent for the by-election in Permatang Pauh.
He said the expenses incurred for the Kuala Terengganu by-election were for travelling and living allowance (RM2.7 million), communication and utilities (RM50,000), canopy rentals (RM6 million), dried food and beverages (RM65,000), fuel and spare-parts (RM698,000), raw materials and others (RM310,000), maintenance and minor repairs (RM830,000) and food stuff and accommodation (RM4.5 million).
He said a total of 3,376 police personnel from various branches in the PDRM were deployed to maintain order and ensure smooth election of the Kuala Terengganu by-election.
Let’s look at the numbers again:
Travelling and living allowance – RM2,700,000
Communication and utilities – RM50,000
Canopy rental – RM6,000,000
Dried food and beverages – RM65,000
Foodstuff and accommodation – RM4,500,000
Fuel and spare sparts – RM698,000
Raw material and others – RM310,000
Maintenance and minor repairs – RM830,000
Total expenditure incurred by the taxpayers – YOU AND ME??
What kind of dried food and beverages cost a freaking RM65,000!!! Okay fine, I did some calculations, it’s only RM19.25 per police personnel. 6 cans of Pringles or Mister Potato will cost that much. Eat your snacks and catch the criminals, will ya?
Why they have living allowance on top of accomodation?? Accomodation provided, so why need living allowance again? Redundant.
Fuel and spare parts, must be helicopter fuel damn pricey. Minor repairs? RM830,000 just for maintenance and minor repairs? I wonder how much major repairs would cost. Must be the damn helicopters again.
RM6 fucking million for less than a week job, where else you can find this kind of kangtao??! Good lobang I tell you! I am so tempted to resign from my job with immediate effect. You want to be listed among the richest people in Malaysia?? Use your calculator, few days of work already RM6 million, one year definitely can make couple of million profit!!!!!!!!!
In Malaysia, everything we do, we must try our best to have a win win situation, as demostrated in Kuala Terengganu by election. You win the election, I collect the winning chips.
I see the logic now. More by-elections, more stimulus packages like this, to STIMULATE where it matters. More chances to make money in this shitty economic downturn. Not like the rest of the world when everything is going downside, we are doing very well. Now I understand, why our Finance Minister has stressed again and again that Malaysia’s economy is picking up!
ps: I am in the wrong line of work!! I should quit my job and open a canopy rental business, specifically tailored for PDRM!! Er, nevermind, I can take garbage collecting contract also. Sure make money as well, no doubt. I want to be a garbage collector!
pss: I bet this the STIMulus package our great leaders are rolling out for Malaysians. Are you STIM yet?? I am so STIM now..
psss: Any of you got kangtao, lubang, jalan please sound-sound leh… We split 60-40. No? Okaylah, 50-50. What? Fine. 40-60. Deal!
kangtao – one’s contacts or connections
lubang – opening. also refers to one’s contacts or connections.
