I literally read my newspapers at night. What seemed like a good day for me turned out otherwise. Yesterday’s main story was about the SMART tunnel. Samy Vellu said bullshit throughout his entire life which I couldn’t avoid to care less. Inside yesterday’s The Star, page 15, the whole sixth paragraph was, “Samy Vellu said his ministry would come up with the toll rates in the next two weeks, based on construction, maintenance and the bank loan costs.”

Bank loan costs? We have to pay for the construction costs AND bank loan costs? Logically, the appointed concession company made bank loans to cover the construction costs. If what being said is true, toll payers will be paying more than the appropriate amount. Who cares if the tunnel is the first of its kind in the world? As always, we are the brainless people who always agree with the rotten people in power.
