SUNGAI PETANI: Construction work on MCA’s Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) in Tapah will begin in September. 

MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Ling Liong Sik said funds collected for the construction had exceeded RM180mil and the party was ready to start the first phase of the project. 

It would cost about RM200mil, he said when opening the 17th anniversary celebrations of the Kedah Chinese Assembly Hall here yesterday.

Dr Ling, who is also Transport Minister, said the response to the fundraising campaign was good. 

“I must be lucky in that wherever I went, people donated generously,” he said. 

He also launched the building fund for the construction of the Kedah Chinese Assembly Hall in Alor Star and pledged RM200,000 from MCA.
