I was approached by the media in regards to the joint press statement issues by MCA Ministers and Deputy Ministers to support the MCA President Ong Tee Keat in the PKFZ controversy.
The people do not attach much importance to such show of support.
As the President of MCA, he can get all the Ministers and Deputy Ministers to sign the statement. They are all appointed by the Prime Minister on the recommendation of the President.
As a political party, the rakyat is more concerned whether we are doing things right.
What is important is that the people wants to see whether the cost of the PKFZ project is justifiable, whether it is viable and whether there have been abuse of public funds. We have to ensure that the rakyat's money is well spent.
In short, how do we move forward so that the PKFZ controversy can be put to an end without affecting the image of the BN government.
The MCA President always emphasize that we must work hard to meet the expectations of the rakyat at all times. This is more important than just fulfilling the needs of MCA members.
I believe that as long as the MCA President does the right thing, all MCA members will fully support him.
