Our Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been calling for our former chief minister Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon to go meet him to talk.
He had tried to make appointment. No response.
He had tried open invitations through the press. No response.
He continued in almost a pleading tone (but not begging) through the media again. Still no response.
So, finally the media got hold of Koh Tsu Koon and make him give an answer to all those invitations.
His response, according to Malaysiakini (you can read the full article here):
Former chief minister Dr Koh Tsu Koon is in ‘no hurry' to meet his successor Lim Guan Eng to discuss any administrative matters pertaining to the previous state administration.
Wah, do I sense some sour grapes here or what? Lim Guan Eng has been openly inviting him over to talk and discuss administration matters and he is in no hurry to talk?
Then some more have the cheek to say that he 'does not want to interfere with the current state's administration' and that he will let 'the current government do what it deemed fit first'.
Woi, you think Guan Eng wants to ask your advise kah? Please. You honestly flatter yourself too much. It is obvious that Guan Eng wants explanations from you and NOT to ask you how to run the state government. From the look of things, Guan Eng knows perfectly well how to run the state government without 'your interference'. Ceh, so berlagak.
It is obvious that Koh Tsu Koon screwed up somehow when he was Chief Minister and Guan Eng was being so gracious about it all by politely inviting his predecessor over to explain it behind closed doors.
So, Guan Eng has responded to that and said, according to Malaysiakini (the full article here),:
Lim said it would be unfair of the state government to reveal the previous administration’s wrongdoings without hearing Koh’s side of the story.
“However, if he refuses to meet me, I would say he is running away from his responsibility and attempting to cover up,” said Lim.
I guess Guan Eng just about sums it all up. Koh Tsu Koon is running scared. Being the coward that he is, he is probably in hiding somewhere. From what I heard, he is also not answering phone calls from strange numbers.
Talk about paranoia.
I wondered how we, Penangites, managed to allow this lily-livered coward to helm the state for so blardy long? 18 years to be exact.
Luckily we woke up from this long bad nightmare and chose another path.
I am not saying the current administration by the DAP-PKR alliance is going to be perfect and smooth-sailing. They are newbies after all and teething problems are inevitable. They have yet to prove themselves and I do hope, they won't go down the arrogant, corruptive and destructive path of their predecessors once the realisation that they are in power now sets in.
