Spending RM40,000 On A Seminar For 50 People Is Peanuts, Says Selayang Municipal Council President!
The gumption of that man is quite incredible. Among the gems in his statements:
1) The three-day, two-night stay at the Awana Golf and Country Resort for MPS councillors and department heads was a working trip aimed at fostering good ties.
2) Accommodation for the seminar was being provided on a twin-sharing basis, which showed that the council was prudent with its expenses.
3) “I don’t think spending RM40,000 on a seminar for 50 people can be considered an expensive venture!”
***** Why, I would like to know, is it that only in a luxury surrounding such as the Awana Golf and Country Resort can good ties be fostered? Can it not be achieved at the workplace? Or does the 'fostering' require more 'conducive' surroundings like those purportedly used by a certain political pair?
Why spend forty thousand ringgit on a totally purposeless seminar which can be held at the council building itself? Will the president or the other monkeys calling themselves councillors have gone ahead with this luxury meeting if they had to bear the entire expense? Just because they have control over the ratepayers' money, do they have the guts to splurge like this. They are nothing but a bunch of greedy freeloaders and should be condemned as such.
