Is Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon running scared?

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.

if the yab chief minister got proof of wrong doing by the previous govt under koh tsu khoon then he should bring it out in the open. by threatening to expose but not doing is covering up for koh tsu khoon. just wonder if it's a crime doing so??????????

Tsu Koon is worried that he might have no answers to most of the questions asked by Guan Eng because he did not actually govern the state himself.Guan Eng should summon all those exco which include Tsu koon to be present for questioning.

Incompetent leader of BN brings about incompetent MBs and chief ministers.This is an universal truth !

am afraid that guan eng is not so powerful as to summon the previous govt to explain. the best action is to report them with the necessary proofs and not playing politics.

Sometimes, it is better to leave sleeping dogs alone. KTK is gone. Actually he has been a sissy and pandering to us and not spoken up for us and now he is not doing us any good either. It is better to get all the facts abou the wrongs and expose them. But do not forget we don't want just opening the graves to look at skeletons and rotting corpses, we want to make sure there are no more graves but good fresh air, sunshine and healthy citizens and a growing economy built on transparency. Lim Guan Eng and the rest of his government should concentrate on that latter part too.

Doesn't it make you puke looking at rotting corpses?

to all the anonymous here and teong wha: whatever I have to say about this whole issue is in the post. I will do a KTK by stating "I will reserve my comments in response for later".

My view is however, leave the past to be the past unless you have proof of wrong doings. Or else make a five years plan what you going to bring to the rakyat. We are not leaving in a world alone but competing with outside world and we move faster if we don't wast times in unimportant activities.
