Idris Jala responds to criticism
Following the announcement of Budget 2011, questions have been raised related to allocations that sit under the Performance Management and Delivery Unit or Pemandu.
Outlined below are my responses to these questions. I have also taken the liberty of using this opportunity to address other key concerns and issues, which have appeared in the public domain in recent weeks.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
