Kerajaan negeri menyangkal khabar angin kononnya nama jalan Persiaran Gurney, di sini akan ditukar kepada Persiaran Chin Peng mulai 1 Jan depan sebagai mengenang sumbangan pemimpin Parti Komunis Malaya itu.

Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kerajaan Tempatan, Pengurusan Lalu Lintas dan Tebatan Banjir negeri Chow Kon Yeow menyifatkan khabar angin itu sebagai tidak masuk akal.

"Perkara ini tidak benar sama sekali," katanya ketika dihubungi Bernama di sini hari ini.

Ahli Parlimen DAP Seputeh Teresa Kok Suh Sim menggesa kerajaan menjelaskan mengapa perbezaan petrol RON95 dan RON97 hanya 20 sen, sedangkan RON95 tidak dikenakan cukai jualan.

“Kenapa ada perbezaan 20 sen antara kedua-dua jenis petrol jika tidak ada cukai jualan dikenakan ke atas RON95? Atau pengecualian cukai yang dulu diambil kira?

“Jika cukai jualan yang dulu adalah faktornya, harga RON95 sepatutnya lebih murah.

The financial performance of Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGVH) continued to deteriorate after it registered its first loss in the latest quarterly report – will it become another Malaysian Airlines System?
 
Last week, Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGVH) reported its first quarterly loss of RM12 million for the quarter ending September 2014 since its much-hyped public listing.  The financial markets have responded by selling down the stock further, with the stock hitting a low of RM2.99 since the announcement.  FGVH closed at RM3.08 as of yesterday, which represented a 42.9% decline since its listing in June 2012.
 
The performance of FGVH was terrible because the 9-month results only achieved 53% of the market consensus full-year profit forecast thereby significantly disappointing the investors.

Permintaan tinggi terhadap petrol RON97 punca bekalan minyak itu kehabisan stok sejak beberapa hari lalu.

Menteri Perdagangan dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan, Datuk Seri Hasan Malek berkata, permintaan terhadap petrol RON97 meningkat secara mendadak berikutan harganya yang tidak jauh berbeza dengan RON95.

“Sebelum ini, perbezaan harga RON95 dan RON97 besar. Jadi, bekalan yang dihantar untuk RON97 hanya 12 ke 20 peratus.

Petrol dealers are fed up of being blamed for the shortage of RON97 and are insisting that it is the oil companies which are at fault.

Petrol Dealers Association of Malaysia (PDAM) president Datuk Hashim Othman said the oil companies were not providing them with sufficient supply, stressing that there was no reason for petrol dealers to hold back on sales of RON97.

“If we do not sell, we don’t earn. It is as simple as that,” he said when contacted.
