When I was in Form One, a class-mate asked me "Engkau ni bodoh ke, bangang ke atau bahlul" ? . That's when I learnt that there are 3 categories of stupidity. I forgot all about it untill this week - when I suddenly remembered that question again. It was triggered by 3 pieces of news, all about spending money on unessential projects, splashed all over newspapers.
Government's plan to build a new Parliament House in Putrajaya at a cost of RM800 million.
Cost of building the new palace escalates to RM811 million.
Minister Datuk Nazri Abd Aziz says "government hasn't got enough money to provide our students with scholarships".
Bodoh, bangang or bahlul? If you spend RM1.6 billion on building a new Parliament House and a new palace, you of course won't have money to provide scholarship for our students. Many have already questioned the need for a new Parliament House. The country already has many palaces, many of them hardly used. So people wonder how does the idea of "rakyat didahulukan" fit in here.
RM1.6 billion can finance the entire university education for at least 40,000 students or be used to build at least 40,000 low-cost houses for the poor rakyat.
So think about this, which category do we fit in : bodoh, bangang or bahlul?
Hello Malaysians, in future, think carefully before you cast your valuable votes because the 50 odd years old corrupted govt believes we are bodoh, bangang or bahlul.
