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.
