PETALING JAYA: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has been taken to task for running the country down during an official mission to woo foreign investors in Hong Kong.
SEMUT (Sensible and Ethical Malaysian United Team) president Huan Cheng Guan said Lim had to justify the use of state funds to go abroad with a delegation only to run down the Government and the country.
“Lim must explain why he persisted in running down and shaming our country in a most unethical manner,” he said.
Lim had taken part in a state investment delegation to Hong Kong at the same time as another mission by International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed on Sept 5.
Huan said Lim gave a false impression to the audience that Malaysia was not a safe place.
He lambasted Lim for claiming that the Federal Government had resorted to phoney measures to cut costs.
“Would any sane investor want to invest in Penang or Malaysia after hearing this from a state leader?” asked Huan.
He also slammed Lim for claiming that Barisan Nasional had avoided tackling real problems such as crime, corruption, rising debts, declining education standard and productivity and workforce issues.
This is like blaming ROS for problems arising from his intention to cheat the Indian and non supporting voters in the DAP CEC election.
So he is blaming Malaysian government for Penang's investment problem. In the early part of CMship,Guan Eng benefit from MITI's effort to attract investors but he is not shy to claim as his.
Now that Guan Eng can't bring any investment and he knows his mission will be a failure because of current slowdown in global economic climate, he run down Malaysia to blame the Federal Government for his failures.
