ALOR SETAR, May 28 (Bernama) -- Kedah Gerakan Youth has taken on PKR deputy

president Mohamed Azmin Ali''s challenge by providing proof that the Kedah

PAS-led state government did not carry out open tender for four projects worth

RM37 billion.

Its chief Tan Keng Liang said with the proof, he was exposing the truth so

that the people in Kedah would not be confused and be able to judge for

themselves the lies of Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak on the

projects.

Last Friday, Mohamed Azmin when asked by reporters on the projects, accused

Kedah Gerakan Youth of slander and of trying to confuse the people. He also

asked Tan to provide proof that the Kedah government was allegedly trying to

hide something from the people in Kedah.

Azizan was reported to have said that the Aman Central project worth RM500

million and Amansuri Residences worth RM109 million were private funding

initiatives, with the Kedah State Development Corporation (PKNK) holding 20 per

cent equity in the projects.

The Sungai Limau Hydrocarbon Hub (SULIHH) project worth RM36 billion was

also said to be a private initiative, while the Kolej Universiti Insaniah (KUIN)

project in Kuala Ketil costing RM330 million was to be implemented through a

bank loan by the state government subsidiary company, Kedah Sato.

"Aman Central should be a state government project instead, because the land

in Jalan Kancut had been obtained by the state government and gazetted for

development by PKNK, which is a company owned by the state government.

"The Amansuri Residences project, although fully-funded by the private

sector, the land belongs to Bina Darul Aman Berhad (BDB), a subsidiary company

of PKNK and the chairman is the Menteri Besar.

"Mohamed Azmin''s statement was thus nothing more than trying to hide the PAS

state government''s weaknesses," Tan told a press conference, here, today.

He said the Kedah government should have carried out open tender for the

SULIHH project as the cost was very high while the state government did not have

the funds.

The failure to implement the SULIHH project on the excuse that the appointed

company was facing technical problems and the PAS state government not being

able to get a new investor was another proof of its weakness, added Tan.
