Don’t blame others for mishaps, Pak Lah tells Selangor govt

JAKARTA: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has hit out at the Selangor Government for apparently trying to wash its hands of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide tragedy.

The Prime Minister said the Pakatan Rakyat government should accept responsibility and correct any mistakes or weaknesses which have occurred.

“This is not the way to govern – taking credit only for the good things and blaming others for the mishaps.

“As the new state administration, they should improve on all aspects and take things in their stride,” he told the Malaysian media here when commenting on claims by Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim that a total of 99 risky hillside projects were approved by the previous government.

Abdullah said there was no need for him to teach the present administration how to do their work as they should be fully aware of what was good for the people.

On the Kuala Terengganu by-election, Abdullah said Umno leaders should not be campaigning for themselves but use the time to help the Barisan Nasional candidate.

“We must bear in mind that if our candidate loses, it will affect our party’s image.

“I hope those vying for posts (in the Umno polls) will not use the by-election for personal gains,” he said.

seals: Pak Lah.... BN Approve the projects (knowing the risk and the history) and you expect new government to take responsibility? That's a joke Pak Lah. It is a key thing that the right info reach the people. That the projects was approved by Khir Toyo and this is the result, before any action be taken by the new government. And you can say "should accept responsibility"?
