Mereka selalu mendabik dada.... bahawa kerajaan di bawah pimpinan Guan Eng adalah sebuah kerajaan yang mempunyai pentadbiran yang sangat hebat walaupun belum genap sepenggal memerintah Pulau Pinang...
Di dalam ceramah Guan Eng di Selangor beliau berani bercakap bohong mengenai kejayaan kerajaan DAP melupuskan hutang RM600juta yang sebenarnya dilupuskan oleh kerajaan pusat.

GEORGE TOWN: Hard bargaining by the Penang Government with the Federal Government is the reason for the state’s success in reducing its debt reduction.
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the hard bargain had resulted in the Federal Government taking over the state government’s RM630mil in water supply loans.
“These water debts were not incurred by us, but we managed to strike a hard bargain with the Federal Government to take these over when we signed over the state’s water-related assets.
“We refused to sign the water deal (with the Federal Government’sPengurusan Aset Air Bhd) until they agreed to our conditions.
“At the end of the day, no one can dispute that our debts have been greatly reduced and future generations of Penangites will not be saddled with this burden,” Guan Eng said yesterday.
He said that in addition to the water debt being solved, the water deal also ensured that the expansion of the Mengkuang Dam in Bukit Mertajam would be borne by the Federal Government while the dam’s ownership was retained by the state.
On Monday, Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Donald Lim was reported as chiding Guan Eng for allegedly misleading the public into thinking that the state had settled the loan on its own.
Guan Eng had claimed that the Penang government had successfully reduced its debt from RM630mil in March 2008 to RM30mil in October last year through prudent and transparent financial management.-ThestarSUMBER : I4TT
