Hadi: Fuel price hike is BN’s doing, not global pressure’s

September 4, 2013

 Sept 5: Harakahdaily.net

PAS president Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang describes BN’s decision to hike fuel prices as extraordinary as there is no sign that global crude oil price is trending upward over the past two years.
“There’s no upward trend in crude oil prices over the past two years. In fact, there is no change in OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries)’s quota for petroleum,” said Hadi in a statement Sept 4.

According to the Marang MP, OPEC has kept oil output at 30 million barrels per day over the past two years.

Together with shale oil production from United States that is expected to increase from 7 to 9 million barrels a day, Hadi said the crude oil market should  remain stable.

“Based on this fact, it’s illogical for Malaysia to increase fuel prices because there’s no pressure from the market,” he stressed.

As such, Hadi said the recent fuel price hike was BN’s on-doings, citing the country’s ballooning debt and expenditure due to the wastages incurred during the 13th general election.

“This is confirmed by the latest Fitch’s rating downgrade (on Malaysia’s sovereign debt from ‘stable’ to ‘negative’),” he said.

The decision to hike fuel prices showed the welfare and interest of the people are the least concern for BN government, added Hadi.

“The people must take lessons from this and ponder ahead on the country’s fate should it continues to remain under this corrupt administration,” he advised.

PAS, he said, would discuss on the measures to alleviate the pressure on the people arising from the fuel prices hike.

RON95 and diesel were increased by 20 sen to RM2.10 and RM2.00 a litre. The sharp spike has triggered transportation companies to demand the government to allow adjustment to their current fares.

    Yes the hike is due only to the reckless spending and worst of all at inflated prices on projects without the need to call for tenders for them. If only there is a need for tender to be called for all the government projects at least half of what the projects cost will be slashed.
    The other half are given out to all the Umno cronies and warlords and when egregious Mahathir was implementing all the white elephants the prices of those projects were so badly inflated just to cover his ‘commissions’. How else can one become the richest man in Asia ? But will this egregious Mahathir ever get to enjoy the ‘commissions’ ?

    If UMNO is bad, why Tok Guru Hadi Awang and the puak ulama was (and probably still is) negotiating with UMNO for over 5 years? And why there is a division between the ulamaks and the professionals in PAS.? I am afraid the talian hayat of religious based political parties are coming to an end in every country..

    Harga barang ketetapan ALLAH – Fatul Bari
    FATHUL BARI
    8 September 2013
    Dalam dunia ini, tidak ada yang gembira jika terpaksa bayar lebih untuk satu produk yang sama. Tidak ada yang suka harta berkurang sedangkan pekerjaan dan tanggungan kian bertambah.

    Semua orang suka kesenangan, keuntungan, rezeki yang lapang, bonus, hadiah, serta pulangan lumayan dari apa yang dibelanjakan. Namun tidak semua harapan itu terealisasi di alam nyata. Realitinya manusia sering diuji dengan perkara yang dibenci.

    Dunia bukan syurga yang semuanya ideal. Manusia yang sedar tahu bahawa dunia dicipta sebagai tempat ujian dan mereka melaluinya dengan cara yang Penciptanya redai.

    The problem with egoistic holier than thou self appointed godmen is that they suffer from delusions of granduer.Even quite number of PAS’s self appointed godmen suffer from this disease.Just like the firauns,dictators,despots,these “special breeds” think they are all high and mighty,and people must kow tow to their every stupid whims and fancies.
