A few days ago. The Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Si Abdul Khalid Ibrahim announced that the state government has decided to cancel the construction of a condominium building near Batu Caves.

Tan Sri Khalid’s announcement is most welcomed and it was certainly a correct decision.
His announcement has once again proven that Pakatan Rakyat is a coalition that the people can count on.
Recently, the Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib told the people that if Barisan Nasional wins power in Selangor in the next general election, BN government will can cancel the condo project.

Hence, the first two things which he should have done were, firstly, to tender a public apology for BN’s unacceptable decision to approve the project and secondly to take disciplinary actions against the councilors concerned.
But Najib has failed to do these two. Things. His promise to cancel the project lacks sincerity.
I have no doubt whatsoever that if Pakatan Rakyat did not win power in Selangor in the 2008 general election, Selangor government would definitely give the green light to continue with the project.
Malaysia is a very blessed country with great people. But decades of BN rule has brought too much political darkness.
