Someone is angry being called MOST FAIL and prefers to be called THIRD MOST FAIL and released his own data.
Who do you trust more for data?
If you trust the official Department of Statistics date (which LGE himself used last Sunday), then Lim Guan Eng is the MOST FAILED state Minister among 15 states and territories in terms of GDP per capita growth.
But if you trust Lim Guan Eng, based on data that he himself released yesterday, then Lim Guan Eng is the THIRD MOST FAILED state Minister among 15 states and territories.
Anyway, even if you used data from Lim Guan Eng and Penang Institute, this is what happened.
At the end of 2007 just before DAP took over Penang, if you were staying in KL then your GDP per capita was RM49,687 - which was RM18,306 higher than Penang's RM31,381.
But 8 years later, the KL GDP per capita is now RM49,875 higher than Penang.
And if you are in Selangor then in 2007, your GDP per Capita was RM26,359 - or RM5,022 less than Penang.
But 8 years later, the Selangor GDP per capita at RM42,611
is just RM2,236 less than Penang.
But whether you use figures from DOS or from Lim Guan Eng, he is still grossly underperforming.
So, Lim Guan Eng is angry being called the worst performer and he released data to show he is actually 3rd worst performer! LOL.
