DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang tick off Dr Rais Yatim for doing nothing about rolling out better broadband service to country.

Lim said he was shocked that Dr Rais had not uttered a single word about broadband in his 12 days of helming the ministry.

“It should be his most important portfolio especially at a time when there is so much broadband development internationally,” said Lim during a press conference yesterday.

On media freedom:

Lim said Dr Rais should not try to bring back the old media controls which would be at odds with pledges made by the Najib administration.

Lim was referring to recent statements by Dr Rais which, amongst other things, had cautioned about legal actions against errant bloggers and stern warnings to the public to not abuse the Internet.
