Phase 01 – When he took over the helm of Selangor, together with his “political minions” he expose plenty of corrupt practices that leads to the massacre of the former Selangor MB on corruptions, the “cow-gate” scandals and water concessionaire lopsided privatization schemes and the sort. Wide exposure from all media. He practically squeeze the juice out of non-performing contracts one being well known as the Talam Scandal. He continues to do so for every possible means his hand can lay upon that also include diligently going after accrued payments from quit rents to property assessment tax. The most remembered of all was his attempt to make Syabas to their knees for providing free supply to a ratio agreed in the agreement. It follows corporate maneuvering of tightening outflow.
Phase 02 – Where normal CEO will start disposing assets to get liquidity and pay off debts, his stingy approach in governing results in the increase of the Selangor coffer par excellent! Everyone is happy including the stakeholders – the people of Selangor. Such is deemed unconventional norm. Most MB will dispose state lands in favor of cash and increased taxes. State lands are assets. They will start making deals – you scratch my back and I scratch yours, it makes people from his party happy and the leftovers are distributed among the less fortunate as he continues to rob from the middle income via increase prices and no freebies. Unfortunately he is too late to do that and make his boss in the party very angry. States unlike company is supposed to be Non-profitable and charitable, Khalid makes it a profitable venture. Because of Khalid’s failure to do what is expected out of him from his own party, in the pretext of Kajang Move to allow his party’s boss to have a locus-standi in the State assembly, the following steps are the clear sign the he is no longer welcome not by the people but by his party.
Phase 03 – He moves hyper speed into last phase of reaping the State apart for his own political salvation. Among others are the water restructuring agreement, approving the construction of the highways and most notoriously, awarding state projects to the developer of his choice. Under the pretext of potentially CBT, his party moves in to destroy him once and for all. The most interesting point is he manages to get the support of the Sultan who is the pillar of the people – stakeholders. We are exactly at this juncture now.
Truly he was a corporate figure and his strategic maneuvering is par excellent and compared to Anwar Ibrahim who repeatedly dishing out empty promises proves one thing – Rafizi is very much a novice!
