Pahang Enlists Pensioners As Bloggers
TEMERLOH, Nov 23 (Bernama) — The Pahang government has appointed three pensioners as bloggers to thwart slanderous comments and allegations posted on the Internet.
State Information, Science, Technology and Innovation Committee chairman Datuk Mohd Sharkar Shamsudin said the bloggers, who would be paid allowances, would be provided with computers and the Internet access in their homes.
The pensioners can capitalise on their experience to explain the actual situation to the people besides providing feedbacks and opinions to the government, he told reporters after attending the Senior Citizens Day organised by the Pahang Chapter of the Malaysian Government Pensioners’ Association here Saturday.
“More bloggers will be appointed. We value pensioners’ thoughts in our efforts to improve the state’s economy and prosperity and unity of the people,” he said.
Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob told the state legislative assembly recently that he was slandered by a blogger.
Aww… This is so cute. They just don’t have a clue, do they?
ps: Uncles and aunties, welcome to the blogosphere where no holds barred!
pss: STP, faster apply! Paid allowance, free computer and Internet access.
psss: No offence to the retirees, it’s just that if the government has problem explaining some of their stupid actions to the people, how can they expect some ex-civil servant to explain on their behalf? Trust Umno to come up with brilliant ideas.
