Hogging space: Factory buses parked on both sides of the road in Taman Sri Relau, Penang.

GEORGE TOWN: A press conference called by Paya Terubong MCA on the danger posed by factory buses in Taman Sri Relau, Relau, was briefly interrupted when a man chased away pressmen and several residents.

“This is not the place for your press conference and you are not welcome here.

“Don’t find trouble here,” he said rudely in Hokkien outside the Community Development and Security Committee office yesterday.

The man who then drove away in a Mercedes-Benz, was said to be a DAP member.

Paya Terubong MCA coordinator Marvyy Choong was unperturbed and continued with his press conference.

“This is how they intimidate the people here to prevent them from airing their grouses,” he said.

A resident who wanted to be known only as Wong said they were not happy with the presence of the factory buses which were often parked haphazardly.

“The buses hinder the smooth traffic flow and some also speed along the area,” he said.

Another resident Linda Goh said the issue was brought up to the attention of Paya Terubong assemblyman Yeoh Soon Hin but no action was taken so far.

Choong said about 30 buses would be parked along the road daily.

Yeoh could not be reached for comment.
