Umpan yang digunakan ialah tanah. Kalau dulu apabila Nizar beri gran tanah kepada penduduk Cina di Perak, maka berbuihlah mulut UMNO/BN mengatakan Nizar menjual negara. Tetapi sekarang apabila Ong Tee Keat memberi gran tanah sebagai umpan bagi mendapatkan undi nelayan Kuala Sepetang, semuanya betul dan bagus belaka.
Beri tanah dia orang ambil, tapi undi mereka beri kepada PAS!
On Saturday, Ong, who is also MCA president, announced that squatters staying on KTM Berhad land in Kuala Sepetang would be offered land titles soon.
This came about after KTMB and the Railway Asset Management Corporation agreed to swap the land, which residents are squatting on now, with the state government.
With the swap, Ong had said that the state would be able to offer titles to the affected residents.
Most of the squatters are fishermen who live on the land where a railway track connecting Port Weld (now Kuala Sepetang) to Taiping used to be.
Ong said that the land swapping process would begin after the Bukit Gantang by-election.[the star online 6/4/09]
