A new Mercedes to replace Perdana V6 for T'ganu State Excos

Exco Terengganu dapat Mercedes E-200 Kompressor ganti Perdana V6
I got this piece of gem from blogger Jelapang who picked up the story from Utusan Oline.

‘‘Setelah dibuat kajian, kerajaan negeri mendapati untuk tujuan jangka panjang, penggunaan kereta baru ini adalah lebih baik menggantikan Perdana V6 Executive yang digunakan sejak lebih empat tahun lepas.” - Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri Datuk Mokhtar Nong.
Translation:
(“After having made a study, the state government finds that in the long run, it is better to use a new car to replace the Perdana V6 Executive which has been in use since more than four years ago.” - State Secretary Datuk Mokhtar Nong.)

And guess how much did it cost the state government for the fleet of 14 units of Mercedes E200 Kompressor? A whopping RM3.43 million.

The full report from Utusan online: here

(What''s going on in his head? Certainly the timing is NOT right... not NOW when the rakyats are suffering because of inflation and increasing cost of living. And here we have the the State government spending ...on what? New cars for the State excos to replace their 4 1/2 year-old Perdanas? Yet the PM and DPM have the audacity to ask us to change our lifestyle. This is sheer wastage and excesses using the taxpayers' money and blatant case of abuse of power. That allocation could have been put to better use!)

Ini yang aku marah dengan BN. Tak fikir ka rakyat sedang menghadapi kehidupan yang amat perit dengan harga barangan makanan semakin naik dan setelah kerajaan naikkan harga minyak.

Tengoklah si Jin bini PM suruh rakyat bercocuk tanam. Dengan sekeping tanah di belakang rumah aku sebesar sekakang kera, apa yg aku nak tanam?

Tengok2 exco - pemimpin2 hidup semakin senang.

Aku ptuiikan semua pemimpin Umno.

Kak Ton,

Seruan PM supaya ubah gaya hidup adalah untuk rakyat bukan untuk mereka, isteri2 & keluarga mereka.

Para pemimpin masih mahu hidup bergaya tanpa mengira kesusahan rakyat.

Kak Ton,
Don't tell me that Proton Perdana of just 4 1/2 years old -Gear Box rosak and heavy maintenance cost. That means they are telling us that the Perdana is USELESS or that they have been using the vehicles macham "Kapal Terbang". These are just lame excuses. You have all voted them in so that they become instant "Orang Kaya" and enjoy at your expenses.

Bab pembelian kereta Merc E200 untuk menggantikan Perdana V6 ini memang amat keterlaluan dan alasan mereka juga agak bodoh bila mereka mengatakan kos maintenance Perdana V6 yang berumur 4 tahun adalah tinggi. Pak Lah suruh kita berjimat cermat dalam menghadapi krisis ekonomi, mereka dengan senang hati nak bermewah2 dengan memberi alasan bodoh. Pak Lah sendiri pun guna Perdana v6 exec je. Mereka lak yang lebih-lebih..

Life that comes with luxury is something BN leaders can't resist. I've been using a Perdana for the last 5 years. Believe me at times I service my car twice a month as I'm into marketing. There is no such thing as spending 50k to maintain a perdana car. Bullshit..

Now I know why BN has always encounter deficit.

Yes, I also own the same type of mercedes here in the US. The car has a good warranty upto 50,000 miles with a FOC maintenance service - bumper to bumper. You need to fill up the car with premium gasoline to run plus a top quality engine lubricant like Mobil One. If you choose otherwise, you are not complying with the required specification. These stuffs are not cheap although maintenance services are free during the warranty period. In the US, it's relatively cheap to own this car as the price is still reasonable for an ordinary professional like me. But the idea that to own this car is cost saving in Malaysia is definitely a joke. This MB has an ego of a sand mountain. No wonder Trengganu folks are MAD, so am I.

God help us when we have an idiot as MB. Disgraceful. The problem is.... we have too many JAGUH KAMPUNG' as politicians and when they hold high postions in the government, they apply their kampung mentality...and think that it's perfectly OK. Susah loh... come next election ...just throw them all out!
