KUALA LUMPUR: DAP veteran Kepong MP Dr Tan Seng Giaw (pic) has denied that he is incommunicado, and can be contacted unless he is talking on his handphone.

"If my phone is engaged, then I cannot help.

"If it is not, then I will usually reply," Dr Tan told The Star Wednesday.

He was commenting on DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng's claim at a press conference in Komtar, Penang, that he was incommunicado with the party since early this year.

On Lim's comments, Dr Tan told this reporter that he was contactable by the fact that the latter had telephoned him.

"How long did it take for you to get (call) me?" he said.

"I have no problem (in being contacted). What's your problem," he added.

Dr Tan was critical of the DAP-led Penang state government based on his Facebook status update published last Sunday.

In the post, which was written in English, Malay, Chinese and Jawi, Dr Tan said Balik Pulau had become "less green" of late.

"Going round Penang Island today, we find the coast is changing and Balik Pulau is less green. The population of 850,000 require houses and employment. The priority is to preserve the forest and the green," he wrote.
