Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said the over 2,000 chiefs in Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang would be absorbed into a newly-formed committee under the ministry."Once they resign, they will be absorbed into the new committee with immediate effect and will continue to get their monthly allowances of RM400 and other miscellaneous allowances that are due to them.

In Perak, a total of 817 village chiefs and 11,438 JKKK members have been absorbed into the ministry's new committee.
2000 village chief x RM400 = RM800,000 allowance allocation a month = RM9.6million a year = RM48 million in 5 years of BN ruling = Tax Payer money!!!
This is not including miscellaneous allowances and allowance for the JKKK.
Your tax is going down the drain. BN overspending continues. DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE SUPPORTING THEM???

(STAR) SERI ISKANDAR: All village chiefs and village development and security committee members (JKKK) in Pakatan Rakyat-led states who have resigned from their posts will continue to get their allowances from the Federal Government.


Rural and Regional Development Minister Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said the over 2,000 chiefs in Selangor, Perak, Kedah and Penang would be absorbed into a newly-formed committee under the ministry.


"Once they resign, they will be absorbed into the new committee with immediate effect and will continue to get their monthly allowances of RM400 and other miscellaneous allowances that are due to them.


"Their duties will be the same as usual and they will take care of the same villages, but they will now be working under the Federal Government," he said yesterday after meeting Perak's 817 village chiefs at the Kemas building here yesterday.


The proposal for the new committee, tipped to be named the Federal Development Coordinating Committee, would be submitted to the Cabinet for approval as soon as possible, he added.


Muhammad said federal projects in Pakatan Rakyat-ruled states would be handled directly through the Barisan Nasional-appointed village chiefs.


Asked about the state's plan to let the villagers elect their new village chiefs, he said: "Let them (the state governments) have their own and we will have our own."


On the possibility of the separate chiefs having overlapping duties, he said: "They wanted it this way."


So far, he said the village chiefs of Selangor and Perak have resigned en bloc to show their support for the Barisan.


In Perak, a total of 817 village chiefs and 11,438 JKKK members have been absorbed into the ministry's new committee.
