Daim raised issue of Taman Tugu and Bukit Kiara
Latest The Edge published a viewpoint of former Finance Minister, Tun Daim Zainuddin.
His article about chronic trust deficit was translated to Malay and published in Sinar Harian on Sunday here.
Daim seldom speak thus his comments tend to draw attention.
Usually his views could be interpreted in many ways. Different interest different understanding.
He had three major points of concern. But the second is interesting:
It is fair to express concern on the empathy of those above for the rakyat.
Quite sure the opposition including BN-turned opposition voices would use that to attack the government. Election is drawing near.
Most of his comments have been heard before in one form or another. It is the part about Taman Tugu and Bukit Kiara that is of interest.
Daim is known to be resourceful in securing information. He knows something others do not know yet. He tells he is sold stocks to makan rojak and market tumble.
Does he know something we do not know happening with the Taman Tugu project?
Heard one of the party mentioned as part of the group to develop do not know head or tail about it. But why would Khazanah be doing name throwing?
Since Bukit Kiara is mentioned, there is land allocated for national park. Daim asked why it was not gazetted?
It is fine for Khazanah to develop and do cross funding for Taman Tugu. But it is not fine should companies without link to Khazanah has interest.
Worse still, some personality with position within Khazanah has interest for the ungazetted land.
Believe it was in mid 80s that DBKL, an entity under the PM Department gave away land cheap cheap ... to Tan Sri Vincent Tan.
The land is believed to be the present Bukit Kiara Country & Equesterian Resort under Berjaya.
Maybe Daim do not wish to see a repeat of the same incident. Lim Kit Siang wrote of it in his blog.
Kit Siang will be silent on past issues and not likely to remind the public of the issue. Someone can help google it but Lim Sian See raised this issue in his October FB posting [read in this blog here]
Kit Siang has change stand to praise Mahathir's 22 years. With Mahathir and Kit Siang changing their stand, it vindicated those changing side one and a half year ago. :)
Is there more than meets the eye in Daim's point 1?
Khazanah boys are usually associated with one former trader who lost RM16 billion or some say RM30 billion.
Images are taken from Apanama.
He should have published the third concern and better, the whole article. Then it is clearer for other's to analyse.
Rhetorics is not analysis. It is is hardly a conclusion and could be presumptous.
