Kerajaan Barisan Nasional angkuh , minda dan pemikiran rakyat terus diperlekehkan .

بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم

Kenaikan kadar baru tarif  elektrik yang dilaksanakan kerajaan Barisan Nasional memang jelas telah membebankan rakyat jika diperhalusi atas ketempangan pengurusan dan kepemimpinan Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB)  yang tunduk dengan cengkaman dan dasar serta strategi  kerajaan melalui Unit Perancang Ekonomi sepertimana pendedahan dan penjelasan bekas Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Tan Sri Ani Arope yang menyalahkan Unit Perancang Ekonomi kerana menaikkan tarif elektrik .  
Dasar dan strategi Unit Perancang Ekonomi  telah memaksa TNB membeli tenaga elektrik daripada Pengeluar Tenaga bebas  (IPP) dengan kadar yang telah dimanipulasikan demi untuk memperkukuh dan memanfaatkan keuntungan Pengeluar Tenaga Bebas (IPP) , jesteru kenaikan kadar tarif elektrik yang diumumkan kerajaan hanya menjadikan rakyat sebagai hamba untuk mendapatkan pelayanan dengan menyumbang sumber saraan dan kebergantungan dalam  keterpaksaan sebagai pengguna , walaupun dikatakan kenaikan itu tidak menjejaskan rakyat , akan tetapi kenaikan itu  tetap memberikan impak yang besar dan beban kepenggunaan kepada rakyat secara keseluruhannya.
 
TNB sebenarnya telah dijadikan kuda tunggangan oleh kepemimpinan kerajaan untuk memperteguh dan memanfaatkan  keuntungan Pengeluar Tenaga bebas (IPP) , yang jelas dimanipulasikan melalui sistem perolehan swasta yang dimiliki hanya segolongan kroni yang dilindungi dibalik kemegahan dan kekuatan kuasa politik .
 Perlaksanaan dasar kerajaan inilah yang telah menghilangkan sokongan rakyat kepada kerajaan Barisan Nasional dalam Pilihanraya Umum 2008 . Kerajaan sebenarnya tidak mengambil ikhtibar dengan keserakahan kepemimpinan peringkat penggubal dasar yang terus menerus merobek robek poket rakyat untuk mempertingkatkan keuntungan serta kekayaan segolongan manusia yang serakah dan menjarah darah majoriti rakyat malaysia .
Dasar Mahathirisme yang selama ini  menghantui dan memanipulasi minda majoriti rakyat terus  didiamkan tanpa sebarang tindakan dan kajian bagi kepentingan awam. Pendedahan dan penjelasan bekas Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Tan Sri Ani Arope , nampaknya tidak mampu menyumbangkan keinsafan kepemimpinan peringkat tinggi kerajaan terutama keterampilan  kepemimpinan Perdana Menteri dan rakan rakan kabinetnya . Tidak hairan jika Barisan Nasional pasti akan terus kehilangan sokongan dan dokongan rakyat secara keseluruhannya dalam pilihanraya umum ke 13 akan datang.
Walaupun banyak pendedahan akan kepincangan dasar dan strategi kerajaan telah didedahkan tetapi kerajaan lansung tidak mengambil ikhtibar dan keegoan kepemimpinan tinggi kerajaan ini pasti menjadi halangan yang sangat besar untuk kerajaan kembali menarik sokongan awam dalam pilihanraya umum ke 13 nanti. 
Teknologi dalam Media Baru ini telah sebati ,kemana saja kita selusuri pasti kecacatan dan kepincangan kerajaan akan tetap memonopoli pemberitaan dan kegagalan kerajaan untuk memperbaiki dasar dan strateginya telah menyumbang persepsi kepada seluruh rakyat dan  mengakui bahawa kerajaan sedia ada terlalu angkuh dan ghairah dengan kuasa, sedangkan kekuasaan itu semakin berkurangan dan rakyat secara umumnya hanya boleh melihat dan menerima apajua dasar perlaksanaan kerajaan dan mereka terus menerus menerima tekanan dengan pelbagai permasaalahan seharian disegi ekonomi dan sosio budaya mereka.
Fenomena ini akan terus menerus mengaburi mata dan minda kepemimpinan negara yang terlalu ego dengan kuasa yang ada , sedangkan natijahnya secara perlahan kekuasaan dan cengkaman dasar dan strategi yang dilaksanakan gagal mempengaruhi sokongan majoriti rakyat .
Berdasarkan pemerhatian keatas ruang siber (Media Baru ) , kerajaan mesti peka dan mengambil inisiatif penambakbaikan disemua sudut perlaksanaan dasar yang terang terang telah didedahkan kepincangannya . Kealpaaa kerajaan dalam menangani penambahbaikan ini pasti memberikan impak dan kemungkinan kekalahan mengejutkan dalam pilihanraya umum akan datang .
Keterlanjuran dan kesilapan kerajaan memang jelas membuka ruang bagi pembangkang meluaskan cengkaman dan mengukuhkan kekuasaan dan kemungkinan pembangkang akan mendapat kelebihan dalam pilihanraya umum memang sudah jelas dan tidak bolih dinafikan .
Kemungkinan Barisan Nasional tumbang memang telah ditakdirkan kecuali  ada usaha untuk merombak dasar dan strategi perlaksanaan yang membabitkan kepentingan rakyat secara keseluruhan diambil tindakan dengan serta merta sebelum piliharaya umum ke 13 diadakan .

What happened after the first major blackout in 1992?
Ani: TNB had plans in place to pump out more energy by building plants in Pasir Gudang and Paka. Financing was no problem and our credit standing was very high. We had the land acquired and were ready to move in and plant up.
But we were told by the Economic Planning Unit (EPU) that it had its own plans. We cautioned EPU that if those plants, which would take two years to complete, were not built, Malaysia would get another major blackout. When you have a place with 250 engineers, it does not make sense to say (the blackout) is because of poor planning. But the EPU said it had its own plans and we were told to surrender the land.
Then it surfaced that it wanted to privatise the power plants. I am not anti-IPPs per se. It is good to have other players but it has to be done fairly. It has to be fair to the consumers, not just TNB, which is a conduit. TNB, because of the electricity hike, has been treated as the whipping boy. The focus should be on the consumers.
When the generous terms were given to the IPPs, all my other peers around the world asked what was happening. They said they would like to have a share in the IPPs. They said (the contracts to IPPs) were “too darn generous.'' (The terms) were grossly one sided.
Tan Sri Ani Arope
How was the Malaysian model of IPPs created?
Ask our previous Prime Minister.
How was the process of negotiations with IPPs conducted?
There was no negotiation. Absolutely none. Instead of talking directly with the IPPs, TNB was sitting down with the EPU. And we were harassed, humiliated and talked down every time we went there. After that, my team was disappointed. The EPU just gave us the terms and asked us to agree. I said no way I would.
What about the pricing and terms of the contracts?
It was all fixed up. (They said) this is the price, this is the capacity charge and this is the number of years. They said you just take it and I refused to sign the contracts. And then, I was put out to pasture.
Why did you disagree with the terms?
It was grossly unfair. At 16 sen per unit (kWh) and with the take or pay situation, actually it was 23 sen per unit. With 23 sen, plus transmission and distribution costs, TNB would have had to charge the consumer no less than 30 sen per unit. If mixed with TNB’s cost, the cost would come down but that was at our expense because we were producing electricity at 8 sen a unit. We can deliver electricity at 17 sen per unit.
And then there is a capacity charge. Nobody produces excess electricity like Malaysia and it goes to waste because there are no batteries to store that power. TNB only needs a reserve of 15% to 20%.
TNB was producing electricity at 8 sen a unit. What should have been the right price for IPPs to sell to TNB?
Twelve sen. They could not beat our price as we had already amortised our assets. But for the new guys or even ourselves to come in then and (having) to meet interest charges and to make a small profit, it would cost 12 sen a unit.
This was what we told one IPP. The IPP agreed to it but the EPU said that unless the IPP raised its price, the contract would not be given to the IPP. So he got it for 14 sen per unit.
And then, there is the cost pass-through. If the price of fuel went up, the extra cost is passed through to us. And in other words, it is passed on to the consumer.
Under what terms would you have agreed to the IPPs being set up?
Have an independent buyer for the electricity and in one way, let TNB come in and bid for the plants. Get other people to come in. Get a commission to see (to) our needs and TNB can be one of the producers.
It is argued that the IPPs' contracts are too lucrative but there are IPPs in other countries in Africa or Asia that have better terms.
There are IPPs charging 50 to 60 US cents per unit but they use diesel. Take our own situation and compare oranges with oranges. Then it is fair. Do whatever is fair.
How were you affected by the process of awarding the IPP contracts?
I felt sick. It was morally wrong and not fair. If it is legal and not fair, I will not do it. If it is fair and illegal, I still won’t do it. It has to be legal and fair.
We work for the consumers, workers and shareholders. TNB is morally obligated to these three, but the consumers come first, otherwise we won’t be around. It is then the workers and the shareholders.
When I said that, they said ‘Dia ingat bapak dia-punya’ (He thinks this is his father’s company). This job is an amanah (trust). You are entrusted with this responsibility and you carry it out to the best of your ability. I do not want somebody to come and urinate on my grave. In the Malay culture, that is about the worst insult they can do to a man.
Do you think you did the right thing by not signing the agreements?
Absolutely.
How should a contract with the IPPs work?
In Australia, they call the IPPs and ask “what is your price''. They will pay the IPP that offers the best price. What they could have done is to throw the net wider and ask everybody (if they) are good, it would be awarded to them. But in our case, the contracts were ready-made and we were asked to sign.
What is your view on the impending renegotiation with the IPPs?
It has to be legal and fair. If we were to negotiate unfairly and illegally, the whole world will be looking at us and they will say “don’t sign anything with Malaysia because if things go against the country, the Government will void the agreement”.
We have to look at this very carefully.
But what we can do now is to say, can we bring down the capacity charge. Anything above the 15% reserve margin, we will call for bids.
The second thing is that the IPPs would have by now paid up their whole capital investments in their plants and it is all gravy (or profit) from now. Could we not bring this down a bit? Instead of paying a small amount to (a special fund), why not increase the (payment) for future planting up? In that manner, we can control the price of electricity. Otherwise, it's going to escalate.
Who in your opinion should get involved in the negotiations?
The consumers should be there. For me, you should get a very independent body. Then, you can bring in TNB, the IPPs, the consumers and Energy Commission. But these bodies and consumers should not make a judgment. source

"Kerajaan sepatutnya menanggung perbelanjaan bagi membekalkan keperluan asas ini kepada rakyat dan bukannya membebankan rakyat,"
Bekas Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Tan Sri Ani Arope menimbulkan kegemparan pada 15 tahun lalu apabila meletakkan jawatan daripada jawatan pengerusi eksekutifnya kerana enggan menandatangani persetujuan tak seimbang dalam Perjanjian Pembelian Tenaga (PPA)
Ia menyebabkan kewujudan generasi pertama IPP seperti YTL Power Services, Powertek dan Malakoff, semasa negara di bawah pentadbiran Dr Mahathir "
" Naturally, the knee-jerk reaction among consumers was not favourable. The 12% rise in tariffs appears to have re-ignited the debate on how good the going is for independent power producers (IPPs) at the cost of the national utility’s cashflow. "
" The imbalance between the generation side of the business and that of transmission and distribution has put a strain on TNB. To understand the privatisation of the power generation sector, one needs to take a look back in history to understand that the country's IPPs came about as a result of the Government's effort to address the issue of stable power supply after the landmark 1992 blackout. Lending a historical perspective to the issue of IPPs is former TNB executive chairman Tan Sri Ani Arope, who headed the national utility from 1990 to 1996. It was during his tenure that the first generation IPPs were created "
