Recently, the nation saw YB Dato Ong Tee Keat, Deputy Minister of Higher Education get some flak from the Cabinet for exposing the scams taking place in the contracts being given to contractors dealing in school repairs, etcetera by the Ministry of Education!
The New Straits Times report today exposes the Works Minister Dato Seri Samy Vellu getting pissed off with the shoddy work being done by the contractors of the projects in the schools of the nation, yet not really delivering up to the standard of the contracts awarded to them!
So, is Ong Tee Keat wrong by his exposing the scams by such contractors?
The way he was ostracised and condemned by the Cabinet ministers for daring to speak up against the ministry officers who were in cahoots with the contractors in screwing the Ministry of Education of large sums of money but delivering substandard work endangering the nation's schoolchildren who are in danger of being killed, hurt and injured if those buildings come down on them as proven in cases before where structures crashed down as a result of inferior work being done by them is really something we the public need to object and support Ong Tee Keat for doing his duty!
As it is , too many corrupt practices are swept under the official carpet and those who dare to blow the whistle on the corrupt ones are instead taken to task and harrassed by the culprits!
The BN government is really not living up to it's promise of being clean and clear in governing us! We have yet to see anyone be charged in court for their corrupt activities!
We heard that 18 ferocious sharks who had been in a feeding frenzy all these while were said to be in line to be taken action against them by the Barisan Nasional Government of Malaysia as promised to us , who voted for them in the last election!
What has happened so far? Nothing much! Those who are corrupt and have screwed the nation are still happily roaming out there whilst the Prime Minister and his Cabinet pussyfoot around with empty rhetoric and false promises!
Ong Tee Keat, has done his part in trying to bring those corrupt and treacherous contractors to justice but what has happened to him? He is the one these irresponsible government ministers gang up against and try to threaten him into silence!
Almighty Allah is with those who are righteous and just in carrying out their responsibilities to those who have placed their trust unto them.
The corrupt ones might escape punishment here on Earth but in the Hereafter, they will not get away from their just retribution! Wallahi wa billahi!
YB Ong Tee Keat, I am with you! May Allah SWT give you the strength to stay true to your principles of being just and live up to your responsibilities. Ameen.
