Second email to Khir Toyo asking why UMNO
leaders should be aiding and abetting the mishandling of the worst dengue
epidemic by MCA A and B Ministers because of their MCA power struggle when
saving lives and stop unnecessary and avoidable dengue deaths should be top
priority of UMNO leaders
by Lim Kit Siang
The Selangor Mentri Besar, Datuk Seri Dr. Mohd Khir Toyo, had broken his
word when he launched his own website, www.mbselangor.com, on 5th February
2003 that he would personally read all emails sent to him through the
website and that he would promptly reply to them.
It is more than 24 hours since I sent an email to him through his website,
asking him why Selangor has 140% higher incidence of dengue cases and more
than 1,000 per cent dengue deaths than Singapore although both have almost
the same population of slightly over 4.1 million people, and why Singapore
could successfully bring the dengue epidemic under control with its
anti-dengue campaign while in Selangor, the dengue epidemic has entered an
even more critical stage than last year - although both received the same
WHO warning last July of an impending dengue epidemic in the region. I have
not received any reply from him.
Khir Toyo should know that a human year is normally equated with five
Internet years, which means that he had not replied to my email for five
I have today sent him a second email on the deterioration of the dengue
epidemic in Selangor state, asking him what the Selangor state government
was doing to bring the dengue epidemic in the state under control and to end
all dengue deaths in the Selangor State.
In my second email to Khir Toyo, I also asked him why he is aiding and
abetting the mishandling of the worst dengue epidemic by MCA A and B
Ministers and leaders because of their own MCA power struggle, when saving
lives and stop unnecessary and avoidable dengue deaths should be the top
priority of UMNO leaders, especially in his case as Selangor Mentri Besar.
