My friend forwarded this story by Rakyat Post via Wassap yesterday,
Mandatory for households to separate garbage from September
1. Solid Waste and Solid Cleansing Management Corp (SWCorp) Chief Executive Officer Datuk Ab Rahim Md Noor said every family member should know how to do it and dispose off garbage properly.
2. “A company has been appointed to collect garbage in Putrajaya, Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah and Perlis. It will also observe and note down households which flout the rule.”
3. He said notices would be issued to those who flouted the rule starting September and a maximum compound of RM1,000 would be imposed on errant households by 2016.
My friend commented,
"Wah! Another initiative to grab money from rakyat leh."
I know that he was baiting me for a debate, knowing well that I am a pro-establishment person.
Normally, I would entertain him.
However, at present, I am too disillusioned by what's happening with the establishment that I was not in the mood to go to its defense over such things.
Let the highly paid professional mercenaries defend the establishment, I told myself.
To my friend, I just replied:
Well, if he really wants to pick up a quarrel with the establishment over the matter, he can write a letter to the pro-BN newspapers. Maybe they will publish it...and reply on behalf of the establishment.
I'm just not volunteering such services anymore.
