LABU AGAIN?

DPM vs EPU or ... DPM vs BADAWI & TONY?

I thought Tony's ludicrous 'Labu-Labi" airport project was in the dustbin after Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak disagreed with the project.

But Tony seems to be pulling his powerful cables, before the cable snaps by end of March.

Wah! Looks like this Tony is more powerful than the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister.

"The proposal for a new low cost carrier terminal (LCCT) in Labu, Negri Sembilan, is still under discussion between the government and related parties, the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) director general Tan Sri Dr Sulaiman Mahbob said.

He said the government had approved the project in principle as it was viewed as a form of private sector investment but there was a need for concerned parties to study the matter with respect to all technical and safety requirements.

Labu itu adelah "red herring".

"Capital market" dah tade duit...
Tuan punya estet dapat free promotions...
"Win Win... taxpayers lose."

I also suspected it is not dead when reading Jeff Ooi's posts that mentioned all the MPs got an envelope from airasia regarding the labu lcct. major lobbying it seems..macam mana nak verify what's in the envelope eh?

Kerajaan Tetap Tolak LCCT Baru Di Labu, Kata Najib



Oleh D. Arul Rajoo

PHUKET, 22 Feb (Bernama) -- Kerajaan tetap dengan keputusannya untuk menolak cadangan AirAsia Bhd dan Sime Darby untuk membina sebuah lapangan terbang tambang murah (LCCT) berharga RM1.6 bilion di Labu, kata Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

Beliau berkata, projek di Labu tersebut tidak dapat diteruskan cadangan asalnya kerana Sime Darby tidak akan menampung kos pembinaan infrastruktur yang dianggarkan kira-kira RM800 juta.

"Mereka hanya akan menjual tanah sahaja kepada pihak yang membinanya. Kalau Airport Malaysia (Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), maknanya jual kepada Airport Malaysia...dia (Sime Darby) tidak akan membelanjakan untuk kos infrastruktur bernilai RM800 juta," katanya kepada wartawan Malaysia yang membuat liputan Mesyuarat Khas Menteri-menteri Kewangan Asean+3 (AFMM) di sini pada Ahad.

Najib berkata, beliau telah mendapat pengesahan secara hitam putih daripada Sime Darby berhubung perkara itu.

"Dan kalau mereka tidak memberi sumbangan, tidak ada asaslah untuk projek ini untuk dipertimbangkan," kata beliau.

Najib berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas mengenai beberapa laporan bahawa cadangan pembinaan terminal LCCT itu di Labu, Negeri Sembilan masih dalam perbincangan antara kerajaan dan pihak berkaitan.

Beliau berkata, LCCT baru akan dibina di Lapangan Terbang Antarabangsa Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) di Sepang tetapi kaedah tuntutan AirAsia terhadap LCCT baru itu berkaitan soal bayaran tempat meletak kapal terbang dan lain-lain masih dalam rundingan.
