KUANTAN – Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said that allocations have been distributed to all opposition members of the State Legislative Assembly in the state.

However, he said the allocation given was not the same as the assemblymen representing the government.

He also questioned the motives of the opposition who continue to raise issues regarding the distribution of allocations, especially through social media.

"If I guess (why), it might not be right so the correct answer should be asked to them (opposition assemblymen). Go ask him why (always) ask about allocations, even though we've already given them.

"But, it (allocation) can't be the same with the government, after all they are opposition right?" he said when met by reporters after the house key handover ceremony for the Bunut Rendang Fisherman Resettlement Housing Project at Wisma Sri Pahang here on Tuesday.

Previously, Pas Pahang Treasurer Shahril Azman Abd Halim said the Pahang government failed to comply with the order of Regent of Pahang Tengku Mahkota Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim Alam Shah Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al Mustafa Billah Shah that a fair allocation be given to opposition representatives and that action was deeply regretted.

The Jengka Assemblyman said that it was more appropriate if allocations were distributed through elected representatives instead of through the State Assembly coordinator.

He said the Pahang government's action to create the position of state assembly coordinator also raised questions because most of them were Umno leaders who lost in the 15th General Election.

In the state assembly meeting on Dec 5, the Pahang Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man confirmed that the state government channelled aid during Ramadan and development allocations in areas represented by the opposition.

"(The Pahang government) gave some (allocation) recently, but it is not as desired by His Highness. His Highness proposed that the allocation to the opposition assemblymen be given equally to the government assemblymen.

"Pahang gave RM5,000 for Ramadan and recently RM30,000 for projects in the area," he said.

In the meantime, Wan Rosdy said, the Pahang government had never been selective in channelling aid to the people.

He explained that anyone eligible would get help regardless of the area.

"Just like the houses for fishermen, whoever needs help, whoever deserves it can get (help), no matter which area they come from," he said.
