PM and KSN are RIGHT! Credit where it is due!!!

During the Finance Ministry’s Hari Raya open house in Putrajaya on Monday 20/10/2008, PM said to Dato’ Sri Najib, “You are lucky to have these people (public officials in MOF) who work very hard and know their job so well.” Yes! We salute!

Further, during an interview with SOO EWE JIN, Deputy Executive Editor of The Star, beginning of the year, the Chief Secretary (KSN) to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan lamented:

KSN said, “…the public is more demanding of the performance of the civil servants but the civil servants themselves have to face challenges like never before.”

“The mindset change which I keep getting asked about all the time is basically this. The “benevolent public official of I know-what’s-good-for-you” attitude does not and will not work in these times anymore. This must and has to be shed and shed fast to a system of listening to the community.” Yes! Listen to our complaints!!!

“It is in the nature of most people to be vocal in their criticism but quiet in their praise.”

It has often been said that the people pay the civil servants and that they are therefore to serve the people civilly as it is their job.

KSN said, “I would turn this rhetoric on its head by saying that with a public service of some 1.2 million public officials, a ratio of 26 Malaysians to each public official, it is the responsibility of all Malaysians to ensure that these national assets are effectively mobilized to sustain progress, peace and prosperity for the nation.”

“Therefore, whilst you may argue we are here to serve, I would add that every Malaysian has a MORAL responsibility of ensuring that our society develops as we would want it to. If continual bashing without the occasional CREDIT where it is due brings out the best in a person, then I would disagree. As with any relationship, it has to be meaningful partnership of consultation, discussion and negotiation.”

“Often, we do not have all the answers as we are serving an ever changing demographic and nation. When needs change, this must be articulated through effective channels by all parties. Critics are great to listen to when you are not the affected party. Critics with a “way out” solution are truly beneficial for everyone.”

We must be accessible. We must be contactable. We must be approachable. That is one of the facets of creating a customer-centric public service. We are aware of many civil servants who diligently attend to public enquiries efficiently even way beyond office hours.”

We certainly AGREE with PM and KSN! Without doubt, 99.9% of public officials are hard working, diligent, helpful and responsible.

However, we must also accept the FACT that there are a few BAD APPLES in civil service as admitted by KSN himself. Nobody in the right mind would want to waste their precious and limited time given by GOD to gossips and ‘fitnah’ someone out of sheer pleasure. (BIG sin you know!)

However, occasionally there are senior public officials escaped the selection screening process and got promoted. For instance, Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican is smart at pretending, good PR, hypocrites and resourceful enough to get close to politicians (initially, Pak Lah and now, Dato’ Sri Najib) for personal agenda. Not on MERITS or PERFORMANCE.

Of course, KSN must not be blamed but with countless complaints and solid evidence, KSN must also take note and investigate! Constructive criticisms with practical solution to remove him out of Ministry of Health (MOH) and let proper investigation by Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA ) and Polis. If NOT, nobody in MOH dare to open their mouth because scared of intimidations and repercussions. He has PROVEN to be very intimidating. No respect for human beings.

It is an open SECRET within few ministries (MOH, MOF & MOSTI even EPU) that Dr Nor Shahidah was elevated in various senior positions and campaigned by Tan Sri Ismail Merican almost everywhere. Isn’t that abuse of POWER? Lots and lots of public fund wasted traveling around the world and money down the drain.

KSN should request from Tan Sri Ambrin bin Buang, our Auditor General for the report on Dr Nor Shahidah and READ! We’ve got a COPY plus other documentary proofs and hard to believe if that is not admissible evidence. Who to blame? Why did that happened? Why KSU allowed and covered up? That is the questions!

The famous Shakespear’s statement: “To Be, or Not To Be: That is the QUESTION”. To act or not to act, that is the challenge for our dear Tan Sri KSN?

KSN must be fair and firm. If found GUILTY, punished. If not, investigate! The Malay proverb: “Kalau tidak ada angin bertiup, pokok tidak akan bergoyang” Literally, if there is no TRUTH, there will be no ‘Tax Payer Rambling’. No NEED! Waste of precious time. We are answering KSN’s calling “…every Malaysian has a MORAL responsibility of ensuring that our society develops as we would want it to.” Yes! We are morally responsible as an independent party (especially as tax payers) “YAQIN” and wish to highlight the wrong doings in MOH by Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican and ‘The Money Making team’. We are telling the TRUTH nothing but the TRUTH. May “Justice will prevail”.

YES! Tan Sri KSN. Critics with a “way out” solution are truly beneficial for everyone.” We salute YOU!
