KLANG: Go to the ground, serve the people sincerely and humbly. This is the advice from MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai to grassroots leaders of the party.
“We will come up with more ideas and renew strategies to be on the ground more for the people,” he said.
The party would also expose some of the politicking ways of the Opposition, which was merely propaganda to gain support but not effective in serving the rakyat, he said after chairing the Selangor MCA meeting yesterday.
At the event, Liow – who is also the state MCA chairman – announced the new exco line-up for the state and the appointment of 15 bureau chiefs.
The new exco sees many new faces with former chairman Datuk Donald Lim Siang Chai being appointed deputy chairman.
The four new vice-chairmen are Tan Chong Seng, Goh Ah Ling, Datuk Puah Boon Choon and Datuk Wong Hock Aun.
Liow also announced the setting up of two new main committees in Selangor to oversee issues related to the state and syariah laws.
The State Government Issues and Policies Monitoring Committee is helmed by Datuk Wong Koon Mun while Yip Jiunn Hann is in charge of the Syariah Law and Policy Implementation Committee.
On another matter, Liow condemned a teacher from SJK (C) Khai Meng in Perak who was said to have forced two pupils to wear bells around their neck for not doing their homework.
He said the teacher must understand that their job was to guide the children, not humiliate them.
