In a move to ensure 2,600 public toilets in the country are clean, Putrajaya has decided to take over the cleaning job from local councils come 2016.
The takeover is in line with the Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act 2007 (Act 672), and the Local Government Transformation Action Plan by the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry.
Minister Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan, in a statement today, said this was to ensure that these toilets remained clean and safe for use at all times.
He said his ministry had set aside at least RM5 million annually to upgrade and build toilets nationwide, and this year, RM26.5 million was distributed to local governments for the repairs and upgrades of public toilets around the country under the My Beautiful Malaysia (My BM) programme.
Is Syed Ali Alhabshee going to allege that Tun Mahathir has politicised 1 MDB issue to tarnish the Prime Minister’s image?

Umno Cheras divisional Chief Datuk Seri Syed Ali Alhabshee’s response to my statement dated Nov 20 shows one simple fact—that he is not bold enough to raise 1MDB issue at the Umno General Assembly.
In order to hide this fact, he has chosen to make baseless attacks against me and DAP. The attacks include the allegation that I have in the past insulted the position of Malays and Muslims.
It is not surprising that he has not backed his attacks with any evidence because his allegation is a complete lie and there is no way he can produce any evidence.
Tonight I was invited to attend the TOP ASIA CORPORATE BALL 2014 at Palace of Golden Horse ball room. The event was organized by RHA Media Sdn Bhd, publisher of Top 10 of Asia magazine.
In the past years, I used to be invited by commercial magazines which organized such award-giving ceremonies as special guest who gave away awards and prizes. But tonight, I became one of the recipients of an award. I was honoured with the “Malaysia’s Top 10 Most Inspiring Woman Award”.
The organizer said that they had put up names of some 20 women public figures online and I was one of those voted into the “Top 10″. Ha ha……. the voters must have been “inspired” by my controversial “Onederful Malaysia” video clip which had caused me to be the target of the “slap for RM500 cash” threat and to be charged under the draconian Sedition Act.
Tonight, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Wee Ka Siong was the Guest of Honour who officiated the event. Thank God the organizer did not arrange for me to receive the award from him, as he was one of those who whacked me on my video clip after some Malay NGOs started their “drama”. I received the award from Dato’ R. Rajandran, Founder/CEO of the Top 10 of Asia magazine.
Well, I will hang the award on the wall of my office. I hope I will inspire more women to produce creative video clips that reflect the truths in the society……. Ha ha! :-))

It was reported yesterday that the Pahang sultan has reprimanded Natural Resources and Environment Minister cum Camerons Highlands MP Datuk Palanivel for not being serious about the Camerons Highlands landslides.
“What has he done? Nothing… the people are suffering mentally and physically when such a tragedy happens.
“The people voted and chose him during the last election; is this what he gives them?” Sultan Ahmad Shah was quoted saying.
While the environmental ravage of Camerons Highlands has happened for some time, Palanivel and Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob must take responsibility for not taking serious, quick and effective actions and measures to save Camerons Highlands.
Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob was reported to say on Nov 7 that he had surveyed Cameron Highlands many times by air and noticed that Cameron Highlands forest had been stripped bare due to excessive land clearing, whether done legally or legally.
National Evangelical Christian Fellowship (NECF) denies supporting calls to bar the serving of alcoholic drinks on Malaysian Airlines flights.
Referring to the the Malay daily Sinar Harian’s report yesterday, NECF’s executive secretary said that he was “misquoted” and that his words were “taken out of context”.
“I never at any time stated that I or NECF supported the proposal to bar the serving of alcoholic drinks on MAS flights.
“My words were taken out of context. I was completely misquoted,” he said to Malaysiakini when contacted today.
Tais added that the question on the proposal to support the bar was never put before him or NECF.
Umno Assembly delegates must be bold in taking up 1MDB issues raised by DAP and former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir

Last week, Umno Vice President Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein announced that topics expected to dominate upcoming Umno General Assembly include single-stream schools versus vernacular schools and the role of government-linked companies in strengthening the Bumiputera economy.
Amid recent insensitive and even seditious calls by Umno divisional leaders to discuss abolition of vernacular schools at Umno Assembly, the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib has subsequently responded at the MCA General Assembly held on October 12 by assuring the Chinese community that they need not worry about the future of vernacular schools as their rights were enshrined in the Federal Constitution
The Deputy Prime Minister cum Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin also said in Parliament on Nov 3 that the government is firm in its stand that vernacular schools are part of the nation’s legacy.
So what is it that Umno Assembly wishes to achieve by making vernacular schools a main debate topic and in the context of single stream versus vernacular school?

KUALA LUMPUR, 18 NOV: Ketua Parlimen DAP Lim Kit Siang mencabar semua Menteri Kabinet agar mendedahkan apakah anak dan cucu mereka mendapat pendidikan di bawah sistem pendidikan negara atau swasta dan luar negara.
“Inilah masanya untuk semua 33 Menteri Kabinet mendedahkan sama ada mereka telah menghantar anak dan cucu belajar di sekolah swasta dan antarabangsa, di dalam atau di luar negara,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan, hari ini.
Beliau berkata demikian sebagai respon kepada kenyataan bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir yang memberi amaran bahawa jurang perbezaan sosial ekonomi negara akan melebar jika kebanyakan orang kaya menghantar anak-anak mereka belajar Bahasa Inggeris di sekolah antarabangsa dan di luar negara manakala golongan miskin terus tertinggal di sekolah kebangsaan mahupun vernakular.
Menurutnya, Mahathir sebenarnya tidak mendedahkan sebarang rahsia apabila mengatakan bahawa menteri-menteri menghantar anak-anak mereka ke sekolah swasta dan antarabangsa.
Malah hal ini sebenarnya ibarat sebuah rahsia terbuka.
