“首相和能源部部长不要只光喊口号,应该以实际行动来达成2009年财政预算案的主题,“关怀的政府”(Caring Government)。”



他指出,欧美国家政府推行“谨慎避免”(prudent avoidance)的政策,是避免人民长期暴露在高压电缆所发出的电磁场辐射而导致患上癌症、儿童白血病、老人痴呆症和不育症。



“我再次呼吁首相和能源、水务及通讯部部长表现国阵政府关怀人民利益的行动,把人民的健康放在首位。” (完)

The Chief Executive Officer of TNB, Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh is reported in the Star today that TNB rejects the options provided by the Pakatan State Government of Selangor to use the alternative route or to use underground cables and insists on going through the densely populated Kampung Sungai Terentang New Village in Rawang for the CAR Project because of the costs.

It is clear that the Pakatan State Government is not the party that is delaying the CAR Project nor the villagers. It is TNB that has rejected the options and have put profits before people. We call on the Prime Minister and the Minister of Energy Water and Communications to put into practice their slogan that the Barisan Nasional Government is a “caring government”.

In countries such as Spain, Sweden and other European countries, the Governments there have prohibited the construction of power lines near residential areas, schools, hospitals, day care centres and public gardens. This is because those Governments show that they care for their people by putting into practice the policy of “prudent avoidance” and not expose the public to the risk of cancer, childhood leukaemia, Alzheimer’s disease and infertility to the prolong and chronic exposure to the electromagnetic field radiations (EMF) emitted by high voltage power lines.

TNB is urged to exercise their corporate social responsibility not to expose the public to the health hazard and the Prime Minister and the Minister of Energy, Water and Communications are urged to show that the Barisan Nasional Government puts the people before profits.
