Penang Lang, get to know your state better.

The questions often asked nowadays by your friends and relatives from other states when you met them are;

Is Penang really performing better than the pre 308 government?

Has Penang really change in every aspect of governance under Pakatan Rakyat?

Some can give their answers straight away while some will have to ponder a while or could not know really how to answer.

Those who can answer will most probably have daily involvement directly or indirectly in the state, i.e being part and parcel of the working force (private or civil servants), moving and seeing the actual transformation going on.

For those who could not answer are most probably those staying at home, not mixing or less interacting with others etc. Even for me who is well connected online seldom realised what is actually happening to the state.

You cannot find much news about the state progress on the internet and worst is the total silence from the MSM. Those online news portals are more interested in reporting political oriented news, especially when they got winds of political fights within internal parties from both sides or rumors of PR wrong doings spread by the other side.

So how are you to know what is Pakatan Rakyat state government being doing all these years? READ the BULETIN MUTIARA that is delivered to your house every now and then by the state government. You will be surprised to read and see so much ongoing and the progress that have been implemented by the PR state government inside the BULETIN MUTIARA.

BULETIN MUTIARA is the state government news bulletin providing information about the state progress and NOT a political newspaper as some people might think. Some may question that since it is a PR state government bulletin surely they will only print all the good side of them. This is a good question indeed. Let me try to answer it this way.

For over five years the whole force of umno/bn including various federal authorities and their party owned msm have been trying their very best to find a single wrong or fault that PR government may have done. From corruptions, land developments, open tenders, questioning the CAT system to almost everything even trying to spin, create something out of nothing but till date found none.

Secondly, why worry that the state government will not report their wrong doings. Should there be any or even a single ringgit corruption you will never miss out this news as they will be front paged by all newspapers and repeated over and over again on RTM & TV3. Till today the eager angry hawks are still hawking around in search for the slightest mistake by PR government. Just relax and let these hawks do the dirty jobs.

Do seriously read the BULETIN MUTIARA to know your state better, its full of information and it comes in four different languages. You want a government that cares and works for the rakyat equally and fairly, this is it,
Pakatan Rakyat!

    Is it really that difficult to tell the difference between the DAP and the BN?
    One stands for all that is transparent and people centric and the other, all that is corrupt, race and religious centric.
    It looks like that there are some Malaysians who still go around with blinkers on!!!

    Our Penang Pakatan State govt is doing great. LGE is a simple peopleā€˜s CM. He eats beef noodles with his sons in a coffee shop. He is leading by example. State and MPPP are also doing well cleaning up the streets, coastal areas and publishing Buletin Mutiara even on the internet.However, the state bulletin and dappg websites could be more informative. I have also seen big rats running around in small restaurants in Gurney Drive and Campbell St. MPPP should go after the rats and maybe get somebody to replant trees on Relau hill which has been bald since the May GE. There are also potholes on some roads e.g. the road to Bayan Lepas airport frlom Bayan Baru. Or is that Federal govt responsibility just like buses and taxis? The Penang State govt is doing well. Keep up the good work!!!
