Who gets Santa Rais' RM1 billion handout?Sementara blog 'bigdogdotcom' dahulunya mendedahkan...
Christmas is stll over two months away but the talk is Santa is already in town in the form of Rais Yatim, our Information + Telco ministry. How much? Close to a billion ringgit, courtesy of existing telco players, including Telekom Malaysia. The money will go to three out of nine companies which have been awarded licences to operate Wimax and 3G. Why three companies? Dunno. Which three? Dunno, but Big Dog heard some disturbing rumor about a Minister's son being part of the nine, or three. There's also talk about a D-G's son or KSU's son being involved. But talk is cheap and gets cheaper by the day. The business site T n T also has the story, here.
...However only three out of the nine companies bidding would benefit from this grant. The three is not ascertained yet at this time.*baca selengkapnya di SINI..
One damning rumour that looms with this is that a close family member of the minister-in-charge Dato’ Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim has been associated in lobbying for part of the grant for one of the operators bidding. This cannot be true as Dr Rais is a respected senior member of the Cabinet and has been around in the Federal Government since third Prime Minister Tun Hussein Onn’s time (with the exception of the interegnum period between 1987 – 1999). If this rumour is true, then it would be a scandal which Prime Minister Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak is gravely unable to afford.
The right way to do this is transparency. The industry is very small. Any movements would be known. More over if it involves grants which are RM hundreds of millions.
Favourtism would simply be detected almost automatically. How the grants would be awarded would create negative perception. It is imperative that the delivery of the 2.6GHz spectrum is done properly to the parties who are deserving and able to follow it through. The challenges arisen from technological, commercial and growth demands for the 100Mbps service will determine how the high value economy that PM Najib’s New Economic Model grand plan is able to be realised. At this point, confidence is very important. Communications is one of the National Key Economic Area focused by the Federal Government.
After all, transparency is what PM Najib promised when he assumed the premiership from PM ‘Flip-Flop’ Dato’ Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi on 28 March 2009. Corruption is one of the National Key Result Area which PM Najib’s leadership has to follow through.

p/s: Pendedahan ini telah dibuat oleh blogger yang pro-Umno..jika dakwaan ini terbukti benar, maka ia bukan sesuatu yg pelik dan mengejutkan..lumrah dari dahulu sehingga kini pemimpin Umno dan skandal/rasuah/penyelwengan tidak dapat dipisahkan...
Adapun jika pendedahan ini tidak benar, maka ia menunjukkan blogger Umno juga adalah antara agen penyebar fitnah, bukan sahaja terhadap pembangkang, tetapi kepada pemimpin mereka sendiri..fikir2kan...;)
