Claiming that Kedah Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak has been stonewalling on their query over open tenders, Gerakan has decided to bring the matter straight to the top.
Weeks after raising the issue of the sale of Kedah government land purportedly without open tender, state Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang has submitted a memorandum of protest to Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
“The Kedah MB already said he was not interested in entertaining me. So this memorandum is for Anwar, and I hope he will advise the Kedah Government if he has any authority at all,” said Tan.
After handing the memorandum at the PKR headquarters here yesterday, he said he wanted to involve Anwar in the matter because of Pakatan Rakyat’s Buku Jingga contained a pledge on open tenders.
Tan had previously alleged that the Kedah Government, through its subsidiary, had gone into a joint venture with a Penang-based developer Belleview Group Company to develop two plots of land worth a total of RM600mil.
Tan said that if Anwar fails to deal with the matter, he will be exposing more claims of irregularities in the Kedah Government.
The memorandum was received by Anwar’s aide Najwan Halimi.
