Supplying inferior quality fire engines & ambulances - vote for BN again?

Our Fire and Rescue Services Department purchased 242 fire engines for RM420 million in 2007, 2010 and 2014 respectively. 

From this, 40 per cent or 97 engines nationwide are now lying in workshops after facing problems with their drive shafts and power take off units.

Apparently, a local company, AVP Engineering (M) Sdn Bhd owned by Lim Chai Beng had monopolised the Fire Rescue Tenders and the chairman of this company was none other than Datuk Seri Azeez Rahim.

Apart from this, AVP also monopolised certain contracts involving ambulances with the Health Ministry and Mindef contracts.

Reports stated that the fire engines supplied were not according to specifications and the assembly was not properly done.


It was also revealed that following the interference of certain politicians at the time, the fire engines were also purchased at bloated prices.

This raises numerous questions - were engines of inferior quality supplied to the department and how much were they actually worth.

Well, we are know the previous administration was full of corrupt politicians who milked everything possible, but this takes the cake - making money by putting the rakyat's lives at risks!

Imagine supplying fire engines and ambulances which are inferior in quality.

How would you feel if your loved one was being rushed to hospital in an ambulance that meets with an accident just because of faulty brakes?

Or your home is on fire and the fire engines never arrive because they broke down along the way?


What kind of heartless people are these? Seriously, it is hard to believe there are those out there who still support Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak and his band of corrupt others.

We understand you want to make money, but putting the lives of the people at risk?

Well, you may be able to get away with it in this life, but one day, you will pay for your sins and I am pretty sure it is not going to be sweet.

Stealing, cheating and lying to the people all these years and yet you are able to walk around with your head held high and pretend to be holier than thou!
