On Tun Dr Mahathir's blog, he asks: "Where has the money gone to?"
"I reproduce here the payments made by Petronas to the Federal Government since 1976. That year the Government received RM300 million. The amount increased to RM2 billion in 1981. By 2003 it paid RM15.6 billion to the Federal Government. The total from 1981 to 2003 is RM168.8 billion in 22 years.
From then onwards it increased from RM19 billion in 2004 to RM67.8 billion in 2009. The total for six years is RM253.6 billion.
I am sure the Government had spent the money wisely. It would be interesting to know what the RM253.6 billion was spent on".
YES, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RM253.6 BILLION? THE RAKYAT MUST KNOW.
Jebatmustdie writes on his blog:
"Wastage is one of the government’s worst enemy. But in our case, the main perpetrator for this wastage was Pak Lah’s own mismanaged administration. With RM173 billion for 28 years we have had Penang Bridge, PLUS highways, KLCC, KLIA, Sports Stadiums for the Commonwealth Games, Sepang F1 circuit, Putrajaya and many other infrastructures. And those were just infrastructures. Many other fiscal policies were made which required money yet the economy was vibrant while the cost of living was kept low.
What did we get after the government spent RM253.6 billion for the past 6 years?"
I think we need to know...WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RM253.6 BILLION?
