Some years back, there was an article on Malaysia Today about discriminatory practices in Putrajaya Holdings Sdn Bhd (PJH), the developer of Putrajaya.
Good thing that the 2010 article can still be found. It ia about PJH staff being sacked enbloc upon the entry of new shareholders KLCC. The strange thing is PJH and KLCC Holdings are subsidiaries of Petronas and it is merely a corporate re-organisation. [Read it here.]
PJH also has some strange ways of doing things, as a blogger The Flying Kick [read here] ranted about the design of a new Masjid of Putrajaya in 2011 that is devoid of Islamic symbolism and looks more like a new age church or highly stylised hangar for Airbus A380.
It seems such strange and discriminatory attitude is also practiced in dishing out contracts for the commercial development of Parcel F which is located next to the Gemilang bridge at Putrajaya.
Putrajaya Holdings is now 65% owned by KLCC Holding.
PAS's losing Director of Election for Kuala Besut by-election and "loser" of his lawsuits against Kickdefella and Faisal Robhan bin Ahmad, Dato Husam Musa tried to make an issue of some strange group of owners collectively owning 205 under names presumably registered under CIMB Nominee company.

That issue has to be taken with much salt because it was reported a week before casting of vote for the general election on May 8th 2013. There should be a genuine legitimate reasons.

The issue to be raised now is about contracts for the commercial development of Parcel F. Details of the planned development can be read in The Edge here.
A source explained to us yesterday that the value of the development planned for parcel F is RM1.6 billion. It is divided into 4 sections of about give and take RM400 million each. Eight companies ntered their tenders. It is supposed to be merit based thus there is no issue of four Malay companies and non-Malay companies.
Four sections and eight companies involved. Theoretically, half of those tendering companies should get. Those that qualify should have a bite at the cake. It is enough for everybody.
[Read in The Malaysian Insiders here.].
WCT is a water-related engineering company and their non-Executive Chairman is Dato Captain (R) Ahmad Sufian.
here reported Pesona Metro (Pesona) had won an RM87 million contracts from PJH but there was for Presinct 2 work. One would wonder what is the relevance of Astro carrying out that news.
It seems that Persona is a Malay front company for Sunway group and perhaps an associate company.
Usually, the real work will be passed on to Sunway's construction arm, Suncon and they merely act as commission agent and justify their existence by doing some contract management.
According to our same source, this Ali Baba company was awarded another section of Parcel F.
Information gathered so far revealed that other companies that also tendered are KUB Malaysia Berhad's construction arm, Hatimuda, Juruteras, Perembun Sdn Bhd., etc. Out of the remaining six companies, two other companies qualified, namely KUB Builders and Perembun Sdn Bhd.
The tender documents clearly stated that lobbying is not allowed but WCT and Pesona aka Sunway had lobbied. By right, they should be disqualified.
There is a famous quote of Mahatma Ghandi. "The world is enough for everybody but not for everybody's greed." For whose greed we do not know but PJH wants to give it all only to WCT and Sunway's Ali Baba company.
In the company's meeting, the other companies tendering the contracts were not given a fair treatment. PJH CEO, Dato Azlan Abdul Karim kept repeating the names of WCT and Sunway.
The listeners felt Azlan was working hard to sway or let's not try to be politically correct, he was imposing his position on other members of the decision making "committee" and Board of Directors.
Of course, one do not need to lobby directly to the PJH people but one can lobby someone higher and in not so obvious manner. That person can exercise his will on the people inside PJH.
After much digging all morning and missing the TPPA Open Day at MITI (no worry we have our spies to act as ears and eyes to attend and inside MITI too), the shovel struck something hard.
Hands of Omar Ong
A high level source inside an agency under the Ministry of Federal Territories, the Perbadanan Putrajaya or Putrajaya Corporation revealed that anything to do with PJH is decided by one Datok masquesrading as a Malay by the name of Dato Omar Mustapha.
It checks out with our source within the Ministry of Federal Territories. The source had just recently left but he damn well knows the crappy going-ons at PJH.
Unfortunately, Omar Mustapha is not Malay but son of a Chinese convert by the name of Mustapha Ong, thus making his real name Omar Ong.
The Oxford graduate in PPE was smart enough to impress and marry a beautiful Malay lass and daughter of a pious Dato. It helps to numb the Malay senses from the fact that he is a Cina kuey (sorry for the slur but it was taught to us by a Chinese).
When she was studying, he was a highly paid consultant with McKinsey and Co. in London. He could afford to lure the lass from other gaping young Malay men (one happens to be also a Dato now) by flashing his money, sportscar and lifestyle.
Despite his liberal disposition after studying at Oxford and now trying to break-up the so-called shackles of NEP, his father Mustapha Ong had put him through a boarding school meant for Bumiputera at the school with a graveyard in front, Sekolah Menengah Sains Muar.
Used to starring at the the dead being buried in the graveyard outside the school fence, the now influential and conniving Omar Ong is keen to replicate those burial ritual. He is making others die with his Rasputanic hallucination of change.
He is very powerful and can arrogantly ridicule and brush aside anyone he see as smaller than his physically challenged height. Rumours say he has CIA link and had undergone training when he was sent for a stinct at the Rooservelt Foundation. A picture of himself next to Air Force One is widely available on the net.
Omar did had kept a sexy Chinese escort service girl at his disposal. He was caught with his "hands in the midst of repeated entering and pulling out of the cookie jar." It cost him his marriage.
Good woman from respectable family cannot tolerate anymore this man who wanted to use chicken as aqiqah for his first born son. Infidelity extinguish the flame and they divorced. She has remarried to a more decent and grounded man.
The grapevine is saying he is now going around, or perhaps now married to a sexy Chinese girl with exposed fair skinned bareback and long slender legs peeking out from a slit in her dress that goes up as high as her armpit.
Can anyone pin down Omar Ong for breaching the tender requirement and entertaining an alleged lobbying by WCT and Sunway? These two companies are owned by Chinaman type owners and probably have gangsters in their payroll.
By rights, someone so personally close to the PM should not have such formal role in Government and corporate. An advisor should advise and not involve himself in implementing although he does not ahve a formal role.
Omar Ong is only on the Board of Petronas, but not on the Baord of PJH. He should read the papers sent to him, attend a meeting and decide collectively. Let the Petronas management do the rest.
Since PEMANDU talks a lot of cock on performance and delivery, Omar Ong must not interfere and allow the hierarchy to function and deliver .
The problem is how is anyone to resist when he say PM wants this and this. More so for someone down the line like Azlan, he has no way of checking with PM.
But the problem also is that Azlan is a typical Melayu Liberal with a discriminatory attitude towards Malays. He tend to presume few Malays fail that all Malays are hopeless. Some Chinese do fail, but it is tolerable to him. Not Malay!
If Azlan has such a stereotype view and bias attitude in favour of WCT and Sunway, he could be even a racist albeit to his own race.
The complain on Omar Ong's meddling and discriminatory practices in Petronas is everywhere to be heard. Petronas staff has been making exodus out of the company and refuse to sacrtifice for a relatively low pay to serve the nation with working condition is irrational.
Those inside are co-erce to leave and make way for untested outsiders and lucrative pay package. If they are good, it is fine but what is blatantly seen is that it is reverse discrimination.
When Petronas pay peanut, these people are not willing to join and serve the country. Now that Omar Ong is around implementing policies recklessly at breakneck speed, they are coming in.
At the same time, corruption is on the rise and contracts rigging is heard to be more blatant. Recently, newspaper reported a staff of Petronas was charged for corruption.
The staff and officers can predict who will get contracts in Petronas by merely observing their so-called tendering companies friendliness to ... ahem ahem.
Pity Dato Najib not able to know all this going-ons on the ground. Even if he tries to go to the ground, it does not come out naturally to our aristocrat-born PM. He should cast aside his gentleman disposition and apply his aristocratic meanness in the right places.
It is to safeguard the nation and rakyat interest. But not the carpet baggers.
