Penang’s polluted beaches keeping tourists away

PENANG: Polluted beaches is the main reason why tourists from Europe and Australia are avoiding the state in favour of Bali and Phuket.

State Tourism Development Committee chairman Teng Chang Yeow said he was informed of the matter by the management of Malaysia Airlines during a meeting on Monday.

Sorrying state of The Gurney Drive coastline

Well said Mr Teng .

Not only the state government need to rehabilitate Batu Ferringhi area, you, as an executive in the state government leadership, also need to take action to help the rehabilitate Gurney Drive coastline, which is full of sludge thanks to Tanjung Pinang reclamation project managed and owned by UDA holdings.

Please go ahead and do an EIA on the matter, let the public know who destroyed Gurney Drive, which is near to the Chief Minister's constituency.

I hope you are not going to play the 3 monkeys act : See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

UMNO owns your escape route

If your property is situated next to an UMNO property, then you got to be worried.

This is the mid enterance to UMNO bahagian Tanjung, official address is Lebuh Bishop, but yet the "brains" behind the building decided to open an "official" enterance facing Jalan Mejid Kapitan Keling.

Now this area measuring 20" x 10" square is not UMNO's property but public area. Their neighours are robbed from using the public space and their rear exit had been reduced to a mere 3" wide space, as can see on the second pics.

Much had be reported in the press this matter, highlighted by Democratic Action Party of Penang, the MPPP President is made known about this, Penang State Government also knows about it ...

But yet ... this building still remains, and no one dare to touch it ... unlike the 2 kuils in Shah Alam ...

So MPPP, are you still asleep ?
