HIGHWAY TOLL HIKE- BLOOD SUCKERS



Photo: UMNO-BN GOVT IS ALLOWING THE  UMNO TOLL-CRONIES TO INCREASE TOLL RATES BY 50 SEN TO RM 2.

 THE TOLL PRICE HIKE is extraordinarily large and even Works Minister Fadhillah Yusoff has acknowledged the hike may be 'DOUBLE' as the concessionaires had not adjusted their prices in 6 years.

The 15 highways that would be affected include
- the new Pantai Expressway (NPE),
- Damansara Puchong Expressway (LDP), 
- Ampang-Kuala Lumpur Elevated Highway (Akleh), 
- Western KL Traffic Dispersal System (Sprint), 
- Konsortium Expressway Shah Alam Selangor (Kesas),
- Kuala Lumpur-Putrajaya Maju Expressway (Mex), 
-Sungai Besi Highway (Besraya), 
- Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (Smart) and 
- Sistem Lingkaran-Lebuhraya Kajang (Silk).

MP for Pandan Rafizi Ramli said PM Najib Razak's administration had the power to stop a much-dreaded toll hike as they controlled most of the toll concessionaires in the country through stakes held by government-linked firms.

Rafizi said,

“The government possessed the power to renegotiate terms of the concessionaire’s contracts.

"Most concessionaires in the country had obtain immense monetary aid from the government during construction. For example, the Maju Expressway (MEX) was practically fully funded with grants worth RM 976.7 million.

" Most of the deals inked with the toll firms involved the government granting subsidies for land takeover, easy funding (through the Development Bank) and financial grants.

"As it is, they (toll concessionaires) are already making obscene profits. 

"You do not subsidise obscene profiteering. The money will ultimately go back to Putrajaya's pocket."

Abdul Wahid Omar, the former Maybank CEO, handpicked by Najib as the Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, said the proposed toll rate hike, slated for next year, WAS UNAVOIDABLE because it was an "express condition" in the concession agreement between the government and highway concessionaires.

Wahid also said that the toll rate should have been effected in 2011 and if it was delayed, the government would have to fork out RM400 million in compensation from taxpayers’ money, which he added could have been used for other purposes.

Political analysts also believe Najib and his Umno ruling party were trying to dole out all the "bitter medicine" NOW before the next general election in 2018.

wahid Omar, Minister lacking in intelligence. Better Wahid Satay, the actor than this Wahid.Hard to believe that this Wahid was helming Maybank before being appointed Minister.

InI kerana anak un Razak ini sudah jadi Melayu bangsat dek berdampingan dengan manusia bukan binatang pun bukan!
Ape jadi kkepada Rakyat hanya mainan baginya dengan segala janji-janji semata tong kosong untuk mendapay undi!
Harap manusia Melayu yang menyokong mereka insaf? Jangan Harap kerana mereka fatalistic - mmemang ingat rezeki mereka hanya secupak!
Sementara itu mereka yang makan dan hidup mereka ditaja oleh wang Rakya terus merompak dan penipu!
Nak tunggu PRU14?
Siape, kami memang dari 2012 sejak menjadi-jadi lagak Kadok dan danu hina, mendoakan mereka diC4 mana-mana lah kerana Allah menjanjikan akan mengabulkkan doa orang yang diZalimi.
So tunggulah 2018 siape yg sabar dengan kejahatan melampau ini!

Buat apa nak maki wahid. Dia ikut arahan. Tak buat nanti kena tendang walau pun wahid tahu yang najib tu bodoh. Kadang2 kita hairan orang2 koporat yang sepatutnya hebat jadi lembu suruhan najib yang jelas mempunyai iq yang jauh lebih rendah dari wahid. Jadi saudara wahid cepat2 bangun dari mimpi ngeri ini.
