【本刊郭华盈撰述】雪兰莪州民主行动党今天中午把所收集的14558个反对巴生河流域大道过路费涨价的签名请愿书,移交给工程部长三美威鲁三美威鲁新闻秘书莫伽纳迪文及私人秘书西华巴兰接该份请愿书,表示将会转交给三美威鲁。

前往呈交请愿书的雪州行动党代表包括新任雪州主席欧阳捍华、秘书刘永山、武吉加星区副主席张添贵及陈彼得。

欧阳捍华较早前对媒体,他们发起的反对大道收费涨价的签名运动获得良好的反应,在短短三个星期的时间内,共收集了万多个签名。

马来西亚人民目前生活在水深火热之中,汽油涨价,之后电费水费又涨价,现在大道收费又涨。对驾车人士来说,他们更是向政府缴付双重费用,既缴路税又付过路费。

也是签名运动发起人之一的刘永山指出,收集签名的目的在于抗议不合理的涨价,同时将会提呈请愿书之际,促请政府公开大道合约内容,假使合约条款对人民不利,要求政府收回经营大道的经营权。

他表示:希望政府可以收回大道经营权,以低廉的价格向使用大道的驾车人士收费。

刘永山(右图)说,工程部透露为了不允许大道公司在1999年涨价,政府缴付几十亿的赔偿金给大道公司的数据。他指出,赔偿的数额如此巨大,甚至于超出了建造大道的费用。

我们希望政府尊重民意,在做出任何涨价的决定前,应该调查民意,以及涨价可能带来的影响。我们也收到不少民众寄来的电邮,申诉大道涨价给他们带来的影响,这些电邮内容会一并交给工程部长,希望他之后把民众的意愿传达给内阁其他成员。

他希望工程部长可以把人民的心声带到内阁,与其他内阁成员讨论,暂缓涨价决定。

刘永山强调,他们所收集的签名来自马来西亚各大种族,代表各大种族反对大道收费涨价。

与此同时,刘永山也透露,民主行动党将会在本月21日上午在蕉赖11英里路展开另一轮的抗议大道收费请愿。17日,几千民众走上白蒲大道,抗议大道涨价。

马来西亚政府允许巴生河流域的条大道,由200711日起涨价20%60%不等。白蒲大道由马币一元涨价至160,蕉赖加影英里大道70涨至元,蕉赖加影11英里大道60涨至90,吉隆坡加叻大道(鹅麦站)元涨至元, 吉隆坡加叻大道(文冬站)250涨至元,沙亚南大道150220,以及牙直利大道元至140

    It is good to know the reaction from the ground and share the info.That is it and be prepared for a deaf ear from the umno-led govt.Even if the signature exceed a million,nothing will happen,but to remind dap to get beyond fact finding and moves towards a working plan to bring down umno[which must CERTAINLY include pas]Excluding pas ,whatever plan will just be a DREAM
