SHAH ALAM, 29 Nov: Datuk Teng Chang Kim today criticised the Chairman of the Selangor Backbenchers Club (BBC), Mohamed Azmin Ali, who was silent and did not make an objection during the debate session on the salary hike.
During the entire debate session, the Exco for Local Government, Studies and Research said that no one stood up to oppose the motion after the third reading was done despite given the opportunity by the Speaker, Hannah Yeoh.
“He (Azmin) was in the Assembly when the motion for the salary increase was read and passed. He did not say even a word…,” he said.
During the debate session on the salary increase, two Assemblymen, Sekinchan (Ng Suee Lim) and Kampung Tunku (Lau Weng San) debated and supported it.
The Executive Councillor for Tourism, Consumer Affairs and Environment, Elizabeth Wong, said that the proposed salary increased had been informed in a special Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) meeting last weekend.
“In the meeting, we mentioned about the salary increase,” she said.
Azmin, who was me today, however refused to comment on the issue and was instead seen as trying to dodge questions by reporters.
“Thank you.” “No comment,” he said.
