KUALA LUMPUR: MCA Young Professionals Bureau chairman Datuk Chua Tee Yong has challenged Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim to a debate on the RM1bil questionable deal involving Talam Corporation Bhd.
He said he only wanted to debate with Khalid and not other exco members, including those from DAP.
“I don't want to debate with any DAP members that have third hand information.
“I want to debate with the Selangor Mentri Besar on this Talam deal,” he said at a press conference in Wisma MCA Wednesday.
Chua in recent months, has raised various questions pertaining to the exercise, which he said was to recover RM392mil in debts from Talam but instead had ended in deals worth more than RM1bil.
The state government is said to have acquired land worth RM392mil and bought additional assets for RM248mil from Talam, bringing the total acquisition to RM676mil.
The RM676mil is part of the RM1bil in questionable deals.
tunku : wonder if khalid dare to accept this challenge.if khalid think he's right then he should take this challenge.otherwise what ever chua had said all these while regarding talam is true.
