THE low-cost apartment scandal in Selangor is just the tip of the iceberg. If the Government dares to dig deeper into this scandal, they will find that this is happening all over the country.
The rich who are well-connected are getting these housing units meant for the poor.
The problem is not only limited to low-cost apartment units but also scholarships, welfare handouts, diesel for fishermen and food for poor students. The list can go on and on.
Can such abuses be justified? It is absurd for the Selangor Mentri Besar to say that morally it is wrong to own these units but legally it is right.
And all because these rich people have contacts in high places who misuse their power!
There are many deserving poor people out there who have been wondering why the Government is not helping them?
There are lots of schemes started by the Barisan Nasional government to help the poor and the downtrodden.
But all these are being misused by well-connected rich people.
