Najib's walk about ... some thoughts and whims

KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 — Three weeks after Datuk Seri Najib Razak went down to the ground to visit three localities in the heart of the city, the prime minister today sprung another surprise when he had a walkabout at the bustling Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Jalan TAR) and Puduraya here.

However, he was not happy with the congestion and the inefficiency of the public facilities during his one-hour inspection, according to Federal Territory Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin.

Najib, who was dressed casually in a brown shirt and beige pants, arrived at Jalan TAR, near Semua House at 3.20 pm, accompanied by Raja Nong Chik, his deputy Datuk M. Saravanan and Kuala Lumpur city mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail

Aiyoyo.... Plaza Rakyat, traffic jam, lack of parking space .... these existed since the previous century. Are we suppose to feel "terhutang budi" for our PM to walk about in places where a million of us converge daily?

Better late than never but this is a damning evidence of DBKL's dismal failure. Have you ever seen the American President or the British Prime Minister doing the same thing in Washington D.C. or London? Where is the tangible return on my assessment, quit rent and parking fees?

We have been having longkang MPs and now we have a traffic jam PM! Malaysia have a bunch of civil servants that can be argued as unpatriotic as their failure to do what they are paid to do is making Kuala Lumpur a miserable capital city to dwell and work in. Let our MPs and DUNS focus on what they are suppose to do and not to become a mandur (supervisor of manual labour) unless these civil servants take it literally that they are kaki tangan only. I suppose their canteen should make otak-otak a staple dish.

Also, can the DBKL look into the vandalism as well as litterbugs and spitters? KL is disgraceful compared to Phuket. That little piece of land of wonderful sinners have very clean and tidy walkways - no litter, no damaged tiles and wonderfully lit.

I am all for huge fines, jail time or forced community service on these disgusting people. I once got into an argument with an old man who discharged a huge load of saliva onto the walk way of Pasar Seni. He enquired about the well being of my mother and egging for a fight until I indicated to him that he might not have the physical advantage and at his age, he should consider presenting himself as a right example. He walked away knowing he lost a fight (still concerning for the well being of my mother)...well fighting for the cleanliness of your country is also a form of patriotism, eh?
