Well Penangites , from the horses mouth !

BN demolished twice as many Malay stalls, Guan Eng counters

PENANG, Feb 7 – Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng claims that more stalls belonging to the Malays were demolished by the previous Barisan Nasional (BN) administration compared to the present administration under the opposition coalition.

“I wish to clarify that the number of Malay stalls demolished under the BN administration from 2006 to 2007 was 100 per cent more compared to the number demolished by the (Pakatan) coalition from 2008 to 2010,” he told reporters, here today.

Lim, who is also DAP general secretary, said what was being done to the government under his leadership now was the result of slander being spread by the state Umno.

He said the state government was now making efforts to convey correct information to the people in the state so that they were not deceived by the wrong information that was being spread.

Lim is now facing strong criticism from several Members of Parliament from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in the state, where the PKR is a member party of the opposition coalition, on the issue of demolition of stalls belonging to Malay traders in Penang, besides being described as a “chauvinist”, “communist-minded” and treating the state PKR “like a dog”. – Bernama

BN will demolish all illegal huts , stalls , houses , as long as they are deemed illegal but not DAP where illegal has become legal , so no need to demolish !


  1. j4otk,

    please visit Penang along BAtu Feringghi where huts were built for Malays families who lost their house during 2006 tsunami. Look at the conditions of the shed. BN did not do much for them. BN has collected hell lot from the rakyat and donated to Aceh. Well whether money or how much reached the Acehnese were never made known to anyone.

    But htese Malays families ------ no one ask about them since then....

  2. The malay stalls ARE BEING demolished by the little napoleons in the local councils who DO NOT want to be anwserable to DAP eventhough DAP/PKR rule the state.

    These little umno napoleons are SABOTAGING the state government but the media is not reporting it.

    So YES - it is these malay goons demolishing the ILLEGAL hawkers.

    ILLEGAL means not legal. If illegal Bak kut teh store can demolished Do you think Perkosa is going to remonstrate.

    JT4OTK - get your facts right.

    Yes I am aware of the situation in Batu Ferringhi !

    where huts were built for Malays families who lost their house during 2006 tsunami. Look at the conditions of the shed. BN did not do much for them.

    THey have since been resettled in Tg Bungah , just opposite the Mutiara Ratu condos . Those who were affected were given temporary homes ( in front of Kah Kheng's bungalow and on Boon Siew's land , and the other on a reclaimed land )which has since been demolished since they have been resettled .

    If they have been neglected , overlook , don't you think they would be making a hue and cry ? No I think these are illegal fisherman's huts or those who refused to be resettled .
