Alternatively, Tony Pua and Arul Kanda can ignore the Parliament Speaker and go ahead with the scheduled debate this Friday and in not so many words tell the Speaker to take a hike and resign if he so wishes.

The state government was told to table a white paper and yet there is none tabled this sitting, and we only got a short statement from the state executive councillor saying that the MB’s explanation at the last sitting suffices.

Budiman Zohdi, Sungai Panjang assemblyman, claiming that the failure of Selangor state government to table a white paper on Darul Ehsan Investment Group (DEIG) at the ongoing state assembly shows the state’s disregard for a select committee’s recommendation

We need to table the proposal at the state assembly each time we want to use it, so we know what happens to the reserves. Otherwise, with how things are moving, we would not know what our reserves are and what we used it for in the next decade.

Abdul Khalid Ibrahim Pelabuhan Klang state assemblyman, calling on Selangor state government to reveal how it has spent its reserves, and use some on development projects like building schools and mosques

Wherever there are tolls, there are alternative routes. So you can avoid tolls just that you would have to brave the traffic. You would have to invest in more time, waking up earlier. It's about trading off.

Abdul Rahman Dahlan, Housing and Local Government Minister, calling motorists in the Klang Valley on a budget should put more effort to get organised and use alternative routes if they want to avoid paying tolls
