TELUK INTAN: Datuk Mah Siew Keong, the Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate for the Teluk Intan parliamentary by-election, has hit out at those making personal attacks on the candidates.

“The by-election campaign is not a platform for personal attacks against both Barisan and DAP candidates,” he said after talking to a group of people performing the tai chi exercise at the Jalan Speedy field yesterday.

“Do not make baseless accusations against me or Dyana (Sofya Mohd Daud, the DAP candidate),” said the Gerakan president.

He added the by-election was a contest between two political parties with differing principles and ideology, not between him and Dyana Sofya. He said the focus should be on what the parties could do for the people.

Mah said the constituents he had met so far had raised issues relating to upgrading of roads, cleaning of drains and sports facilities.

“The provision of these facilities was disrupted after the DAP won the seat (in the 2008 and 2013 general elections). We (Barisan) wants to resume the development planned for the constituency (prior to 2008),” he said.

Mah had held the Teluk Intan seat for two terms from 1999. — Bernama
