Cancelled Project to Cost RM0.70 Billion

Every human beings in Malaysia has been advised to spend properly in view of rising costs in all aspects. This advise came from none other than Malaysia's Deputy Prime Miniser, Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.

On the contrary, it's not being practised in government projects especially the controversial RM1.5 billion Asia's biggest incinerator project in Broga, Selangor which had been disputed since 2003 by landowners/ residents/NGOs. And the government has now decided to cancel the project citing high operational costs.

With the cancellation of the project, it was rumoured that the contractor that was given the project may get to pocket as much as RM0.50 billion to RM0.70 billion in compensation. Wah lau eh!!!! The Board of Directors/shareholders of Ebara Corporation, a Tokyo-based company, as the incinerator contractor will be having sumptuous celebrations. And a portion of the compensation will be given to certain parties as commission?

Didn't the government did a proper study before proceeding with project first? Whatever the amount of compensation, it's still negligence by the government. How can a contract be executed when the government hasn't made up their mind? Now, who's going to pay for it, taxpayers' monies again? If this happened in a private commercial company, the staff involved would have been sacked.

Do you smell something here?

I'm going to register a company, proposed some highly charged ideas at huge costs, get the contracts signed and sit and wait for it to be cancelled as what I have quoted is definitely too high to proceed. Then start sourcing for nice properties throughout the world in view of the huge compensation I'll be getting.
