MCA: Teresa Kok should speak up on Selangor alcohol ban in traditional medicine shops

PETALING JAYA: MCA has slammed the Selangor government for a proposed ban for the sale of alcohol in all traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) shops in the state.

MCA Selangor State Liaison Committee Secretary Ng Chok Sin (pic) said the decision was irrational and backwards, contradicting the state’s image as one of Malaysia’s most developed and richest state. 

“This move is unacceptable as it not only affects the business of TCM shop owners, but also applies subtle pressure on the traditional medicine industry,” he said in a statement on Thursday.

Ng said that when the Malacca government announced its proposal to ban the sale of alcohol in all 7-11 convenience stores in Muslim-majority areas, DAP Vice-Chairman Teresa Kok had kicked up a fuss.

“Yet, she did not utter a single protest over the Pakatan Selangor government’s proposed alcohol ban,” he said.

“Thus, Teresa Kok too must now state whether or not she supports the Selangor government’s move,” he added.
