The Chief Minister has not properly handled the recent disclosure that CM Lim Guan Eng bought a bungalow at below market price.
The series of bizarre responses given by LGE is evidence that he is like a drowning man clutching at any straw to stay alive.
Amongst some of the excuses offered, include:
* The absence of a swimming pool (which does not validate the undervalued selling price)
* The age of the bungalow (first stated by CM Lim in his tweet as a 40-year-old bungalow and then corrected to 30-year-old bungalow when Malaysian News reposted his tweet). The fact that LGE is uncertain about that fact underscores the fact that it is the MARKET VALUE that is important, not the age of the bungalow.
* A challenge to Tasek Gelugor MP Datuk Shabudin Yahaya to meet him on a one-on-one basis at his office in front of the media to provide evidence of 8 allegations exposed at Parliament last week.
The absence of LGE’s famous “You report- I sue” maxim fizzled into thin air this time as a flurry of various vernacular and English presses reported on this issue.
Previously, his reaction would be quite vehement but this time, it seems he has been cornered because evidence exposed in various reports last week points in the direction of a link between the Taman Manggis land sale and the low purchase price he paid for this bungalow.
