- Khazanah Nasional & KWSP to take over PLUS
- 5 years guarantee of no toll hike.
What else can I say, other than it’s a relief. But it’ll all come with high price for GLC which need to complete the takeover the ownership of the company. But to think about it better the GLC takeover rather than MMC which been a while talks about taking over PLUS. If MMC take over PLUS there is no guarantee that no toll hike will took place.
In a way to think about it that’s why its possible to control the toll hike. Bravo!
My advise :
-Improve or have more R&R PLUS highway.Women
- 90 days of maternity leave (paid ones)
This maybe a start for something big in the future. I do hope that the private sector should follow the government footstep on giving higher maternity leave. Unfortunately as a father of a born child I do hope that the government in the future takes the step of European country which gives a compulsory paternity leave.
Early days of child’s birth are very crucial. Not only to the mother but for the father. There’s lots of stuff need to be done. Things such as baby’s registration, settle the bills, buying stuff, unexpected thing etc2. At the moment only certain MNC (multinational company) having this leave.
My advice :
-Adopt Paternity leave for husbands.
- RM 111 million
At the moment I still try to find a light through this programme. I don’t see it’s beneficial as a whole to the people but only to certain quarters of children which have access to the programme. Until now the existence of the project is still synonym to the wife of Prime Minister Datin Rosmah. Even sometime I wonder where this programme falls into. Under which portfolio or Menteri ? Sometime I even think that Datin have a portfolio in like a menteri when addressing Permata event. A layman on the street even will relate Datin with Permata.
I even comment the programme under different post before. I always assume that only certain quarters of people benefited the programme. People who have access & upon others rural people will be left out. Anyhow, some people might think differently, please check & evaluate yourself. Here & here.. But since my last comment about Permata there's some improvement which i actually quite impressed.
I see the programme already started to reach out to people. Deep to rural areas. Which is a positive sign. Well. I'll reserved my thoughts & comment till sometime. As for Permata Pintar i can see there's quite transparent on statistic of student which attend the exams. That's for the statistic.
But Permata still need to show that the programme benefit all the people & if it can bring out a true potential of students from a very rural area then it will shed the light to a lot of people.
My advice :
- Permata programme shall be handover to relevant Kementerian ASAP to avoid misinterpritation of the community. The faster the better. (Penaung- Datin Rosmah)
- Extend the Permata Programme to benefit the rural one like PAPN. This one should be largely promoted not the Permata Seni etc2..
I will be closely monitor the activity done Publish Post by Permata..
