Malaysiakini: Gov’t defends Petronas’ Philharmonic Orchestra

 The government has defended the decision to continue with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) being funded by Petronas, the state-owned oil company.

Deputy Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, SK Devamany said that not many companies in the country which could well-afford to sponsor its musical programme.

“This initiative by Petronas should be emulated by other companies in the country,” he told Mahfuz Omar (PAS-Pokok Sena) during the oral question session.

He said its ‘intrinsic value’ was priceless for many and cannot be compared with money.

I think it would be better if Petronas can Channel that money to help poor malaysian…

You say well afford? Dont you see the wastage of Publics money?

The event will bring “intrinsic value” for peoples like you, not the common public.

At the moment, Malaysia government should focus on solving public grieveness. Not on intrinsic Value, which is priceless only for you!

You want event that promote intrinsic value? why not you promote local musical orchestra, or traditional music? Believe me it contain more value than the philharmonic orchestra!!! And Cheaper!!!

    This Devamany fella is a coward b…… who shamelessly retracted his statement wth regard to the temple demolition last year which was the last straw which broke the camel’s back.Now he is defending the orchestra,when the rakyat is struggling to make ends meet.

    This moron’s days are also numbered,we Indians will teach him what is the meaning of makkal sakthi soon.These are the scumbags disgracing the Indians in the name of MIC.Shameless swine.
