‘Accept criticism and improve’

Penang MCA chairman Datuk Tan Teik Cheng speaking at a political talk on Pakatan Harapan

SOME 600 people attended a talk on Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) first year anniversary and its failed election promises at the Penang Chinese Town Hall.

Organised by the Penang MCA, the three-hour talk saw five MCA leaders and a special guest speaker taking to the stage.

State MCA chairman Datuk Tan Teik Cheng (pic) said the current government should accept the people’s criticism and improve themselves.

“I want to know the status of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) and whether it would be recognised for entry into public institutions of higher education,” he said on Thursday.

Tan also expressed his disappointment that the government only provided TAR UC with a development fund of RM5.5mil instead of the RM30mil matching grant.

Bagan MCA chairman Dr Tan Chuan Hong again touched on the toll collection at Sungai Nyior which has yet to be abolished as promised by DAP leaders.

“It has been 12 years since they made the promise but nothing has been done so far,” he said.

The other speakers included Penang MCA secretary Yeoh Chin Kah, Penang MCA Youth chief Lim Swee Bok and Pahang MCA Youth secretary Saw Yee Fung.

Former Penang Chinese Clan Council chairman Dr Anthony Chang, who was the guest speaker, urged Penangites to understand their rights in deciding the future of the state.

“The Penang International Airport is the source of income for the state.

“If the proposed Kulim International Airport is approved, the prices of properties in Penang will decrease and several industries will be affected,” he said.

He later donated RM500,000 towards the scholarship fund for the poor and underprivileged students at TAR UC.
