JKR Unable to carry out project?

Pak Lah said:

"We, in the Cabinet have decided that if JKR (Public Works Department) is unable to carry out a project, we will let other contractors help out. There are many other possible methods. Interested parties should submit their proposals. We will select the best in terms of quality and pricing."

JKR unable to carry out a project? OMG, JKR, how is it that such a big institution with thousands of engineers and hundreds of Pengarah, with 100 years of background experience, you are not capable or unable to carry out a project? I don't see the reason unless it's JANGAN KERJA RAJIN or JAGA KAKI ROMPAK!

JKR, and all the engineers, do you have other reasons?



Was it JKR's fault?




Was it JKR's fault too?






2 weeks have passed, yet many still waiting!!!!




Computer Lab fiasco & Matrade Building; Was it JKT's fault?

Ok, seems PWD also having the same problems like DID. Pak Lah said if they cannot carry out, he'll call other contractors to carry on, so who else will be called? Is that another strategy?

The govt privatise everything b'coz of system failure, now the JKR ppl are also similarly useless. Why?? Because our civil service is in a rot. Because their leaders are one bunch of rotten fishheads. What a stench!

JKR is far more better than PMC. When JKr complete projects in time, nobody give credit. But when somethin happen, JKR get the blame. It is the politician who fuck the whole thing up.

I have a long-term solution. Privatise JKR. Then all the engineers and huge workforce will be busy earning their salaries. Otherwise if the government has no money they will have no work to do. :)

Maybe they don't know the definition of project.How to implement things they don't even know what is it?

I remember a speech by my a former DG of JKR.... JKR is like a laundry basket; if you add in another soiled cloth, what difference does it make?

Uncle Sam once said in an opening speech of a senior officer's conference; JKR ni macam Bini Tua. Dia kerja saje. Apa orang suruh buat, dia buat dan dia tidak buka mulut. Orang marah pun dia diam. Orang kata macam-macam pun dia diam dan dia kerja juga.... Bukan macam Bini Muda (PMC). Bila Bini Muda tak dapat siap kerja, Bini Tua juga siapkan dan dia diam juga...

I think that quite sum up things. A few rotten egg in a delivery bunch shouldnt be made too much noise of when elephant corpse lay in front of our eyes and those in the proper places seem not to notice....

Gukita,

I strongly agree with you. However, the public won't know the truth within JKR. There may be a few rotten eggs in JKR but JKR is such a huge institution with tens of thousands of employees; there's bound to be a few rotten. But the critical issue in JKR is the fact that many of the difficulties and bureaucratic inefficiencies are largely due to political interferences, minister's act of defiances and interferences to the engineering aspects, plus, the lack of incentive such as promotion and motivation. Now we have a great general in the D-G who is a visionary leader but unfortunately his term is so short that before he could get the engine started, his retirement is due. I am afraid that it will take another century to get another visionary leader like Datuk Wahid.

Gukita said...

Doc Mave,
You hit a sore spot there. The KP was my Pengarah at Pahang and I think I know him. Though his term is short he has shown the way that no others had dared....He stuck to his ground, lay the cards bare and in the end....Integrity wins...as it should be.

Maverick SM said...

Gukita, KP stcuk to his ground, lay the cards bare and in the end ... ya, in the end, but... it is only the end of his term; the fact goes is that what he had done, was it sustainable? I am no pessimist, however, I observed the probable successor, and derived that the legacy will end too, by April 2007, the end of Dr Wahid's term. What a sad episode. I could never envisage the successor has the capacity and competency and courage to continue the good work which will come to nothing, by then.
