It is now becoming clearer by the day. Abdullah Badawi said they have heard the message, but from their actions, they are still deaf. We are seeing how the BN (Barisan Nasional) Federal Government and its agencies are placing obstacles in the path of the PR (Pakatan Rakyat) controlled states by various means such as stopping funding to the state government agencies and channeling it via BN controlled bodies. The latest is the announcement by Noh Omar that the Entrepreneur and Cooperatives Development Ministry will stop disbursing development funds to the SEDCs (state economic development corporations) but channel them via MARA (Majlis Amanah Rakyat) instead. This was announced at the annual general meeting of the Perak chapter of the Malaysia Malay Chamber of Commerce.
