GEORGE TOWN: The controversy involving Pulau Jerejak continues with Penang Gerakan hitting out at the state government over the recent sale of Penang Development Corpora­tion’s (PDC) 49% stake in Tropical Island Resort Sdn Bhd (TIRSB) to a local developer.

Penang Gerakan chairman Teng Chang Yeow questioned the sale to Q Islands Development Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Ideal Property Group, when Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng rejected the deal in 2013.
