rm 22 million just for checking/inspecting buildings?!?...

am sure a lot of people out there should know by now that malaysian umno-led govt buildings have tons of negative effects to it... millions of ringgits spent... another millions of ringgits needed for just to do checking/inspecting...

uncle sam mentioned in the below article that rm 22 million needed!... will this 'project' be another one like mrr2?!?.. fm rm 22 million to some other bigger amount?!?..

also, why rm 22 million?!?... the rakyat have every right to know!...

mind you, as per the report rm 22 million is only for checking/inspecting.. wat about repair work?!?... the way they are spending the money is like they can tear down the whole buidling and build another brand new one!...

p/s ; at times i wonder whether, did they do this on purpose... think the long term effects can definitely make them richer tho... :) ...







Checks for defects will cost RM22m, says Samy

KUALA LUMPUR: Inspections of all government buildings in Putrajaya for defects will cost about RM22mil, said Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

The inspections will be carried out in six months and a proposal had been submitted to the Cabinet, he told reporters.

On April 30, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi ordered an immediate check on government buildings following the third case of structure collapse in three weeks.

A month ago, a burst pipe at the new Immigration Department Headquarters in Putrajaya brought its operations to a halt.

On April 29, chunks of the plaster ceiling at the multi-purpose hall at the Entrepreneurial Development and Cooperative Ministry collapsed.

The third incident was at the new Jalan Duta Court Complex here on April 30, where two parts of a ceiling collapsed.

On the malfunction of the runway navigation lights at the Sultan Mahmud Airport in Terengganu, Samy Vellu said new Public Works Department director-general Datuk Dr Judin Abdul Karim would investigate and take action against the contractors doing the upgrading works.

The inspections will be carried out in six months.....are they going to check brick by brick! Is this not a long time. Then in the interim is it safe? Samy cannot guarantee I am sure. Use the building at your own risk. Wonderful.
