MPSJ must change logo as it has PAS colour, says councillor
SMART COUNCILLORS Series. Newly appointed MPSJ councillor Arrifin Osman wants the MPSJ logo changed - using ratepayers' money. Or he will not wear it because it features green, and green represents Opposition party, PAS.

SUBANG JAYA, February 4:
New political appointees have taken up positions as MPSJ Councillors in a reshuffle last July.
Just one question: How smart are those who replaced the old ones?
Arrifin Osman, a new political appointee from UMNO Seri Kembangan takes offence of the MPSJ logo. He was quoted to have said:
"I won't wear the logo because it features green, and green represents the colour of an opposition party."
Apparently, the opposition party that dons green is none other than UMNO's arch rival, Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS) (See logo on the right).
The Sun reported today that, at a recent full board council meeting, Arrifin demanded to have the MPSJ logo changed immediately, and ratepayers' money was not an issue to him.
In response, MPSJ deputy president Arpah Abdul Razak said: "We do not have enough allocation for this. Furthermore, the new logo was launched just two years ago and we have just managed to replace all the old logos across the municipality with the new ones..."
Arrifin cut her short by saying that: "That is not a problem. It won't cost that much to change all the logos. We can just cover the present logo with plastic stick-ons to change it."
"It is not that expensive. After all, if we can use RM500,000 for other things, then why not for this purpose?" The Sun quoted Arrifin as saying.
"I shall not wear green, because green is not the colour of the (ruling) party," he added.
"I (and all the councillors) am from Barisan Nasional... when people see me wearing the MPSJ logo they make fun of me, they associate me with the Opposition."
"The green in the MPSJ logo is very prominent, and many people have pointed out the flaw to me," he added.
Going by Arrifin's argument, council president Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail may be in trouble. It was he who changed the logo to the present one, with the green accent, in 2001.
Observers told the usjXpress Team that political undercurrents may drag Ahmad Fuad into a quagmire, associating him as an Opposition sympathiser.
According to the MPSJ website, green was chosen for the logo as it represents unity and the council's concern for the environment.
Academics contacted by the usjXpress Team said green is generally symbolic with the Muslim community.
There's no better person to adjudge whether we are dealing with smart councillors who are appointed to defend our interests as MPSJ ratepayers.
