BN govt orders federal dept heads to resist Perak state government

We have a grave situation here. Reports from the press had confirmed that the Barisan Nasional (BN) federal government is stepping up its resistance first against the Pakatan Rakyat-led Perak state government.
The minister in the prime minister's department Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi had said yesterday, with immediate effect all federal heads of departments would not be allowed to attend state-level meetings and these federal departments will only consider recommendations and applications from their own created federal village and security committees (JKKKP) instead of the original state village and security committees (JKKK).

According to Datuk Zahid, the move was needed to cut off the state village and security committees (JKKK) appointed by the Perak state government from obtaining any development funds from federal departments. This will eventually make the state JKKK weaker, unreliable, with lack of funds and thus, making the people dissappointed with the state JKKKs' ineffectiveness and moving their grievances to the JKKKP instead.

It is believed that resistance organised by the BN government would eventually move into the other Pakatan Rakyat-led state governments like Kedah, Penang, Selangor and Kelantan.

However, Datuk Zahid had declined to reveal further plans on the other Pakatan-held states when asked to disclose the similar plans in the future.

Looks like the BN is seeking some sort of revenge on the people who voted in the opposition coalition in the five states. The BN is still in a denial mode.
