Wind up Proton as it’s a failure, says Bung Mokhtar
BACKBENCHER’S Club deputy chairman Datuk Bung Moktar Radin has called for Proton to be wound up claiming that the national car maker had embarrassed the nation by trying to pass off a rebadged Mitsubishi Lancer as the Proton Inspira.
Bung Moktar (BN-Kinabatangan) said he could not accept Proton’s excuse that it was too costly to develop its own car to replace the Proton Waja.
“Proton said it would cost RM700mil to produce a new car. If it cannot afford (to design a new model), then just close down
“Do not embarrass the country. Proton has been doing research and development for years. Don’t tell me that there is no design that can make the people proud,” he said while debating the Budget 2011.
Azmin Ali (PKR-Gombak) then pointed out that Proton made RM301.8mil in losses in 2009 and asked Bung Mokhtar for his opinion.

Le...ah bung mokhtar beri statement lagi ka?
Sometimes i laughed at how foolish our local politicians can be, saying things without filtering and directly from the heart without thinking about the consequences.
The statement that he gave about proton shows that as though he graduated from the university of hutan, cmon ah-bung, how can you just shelved PROTON just like that? Do you have any idea how many suppliers is working under it and shelving this gigantic company means breaking the ricebowls of at least hundreds of small time suppliers.
I admit that i do hate proton, and they should have taken the offfer to merge with VW ages ago if not for their JUAL MAHAL attitude. Ah-bung even a street kid like me knows that proton is an important component to our artificialy balanced motoring industry, but shelving proton is not the answer, and if proton embarass you so much, why dont you find a strategic partner for them?
Ah-BUNG, why are you still active in politics when you should be making babies with your Oh-So-Young Zzzz....wife?
