Politics and a cattle farm

MARCH 18 – When public funds for a national cattle farm were found to be used to buy properties, is that politics or a crime?

What if the firm running the cattle farm is related to a government leader? Is it only politics or still a crime?

While the jury (a quaint phrase with no practical use in Malaysia) is still out on what went wrong with the National Feedlot Centre (NFC), Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil told a court today the opposition attack on the project was because they feared the strength of her Wanita Barisan Nasional (BN).

The Wanita BN and Wanita Umno chief had filed a RM100 million defamation suit against PKR strategy chief Rafizi Ramli and PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin over their statements, and the case was heard today.

“Your client was gunning for me as Wanita BN chief because he’s afraid of the strength of Wanita BN,” an angrily-gesturing Shahrizat told Rafizi’s lawyer, Ranjit Singh, in court today.

It may be politics, but it is still a crime, no?

Shahrizat might think that the entire world fears Wanita BN’s strength but her Selangor Wanita BN chief is also embroiled in a publicly-funded project that has yet to bear fruit.

Coincidence that both Wanita BN chiefs are linked to business problems or is it just a plot to weaken the movement?

The fact of the matter is, public funds were used and someone has to be accountable, no matter if they hold high positions or their movements are feared by many.

It is time that one sees the issue as it is: The abuse of public funds for national projects as exposed by the Auditor-General.

If there was no hint of wrongdoing and it being a case of political manoeuvres, would the Najib administration have not renewed Shahrizat’s senatorship, effectively dropping her from the Cabinet?

Shahrizat should know better than to blame this on pure politics.
