MBPP officers were seen taking down the posters on Tuesday.

GEORGE TOWN: Barisan Nasional has fired the first salvo in the poster war in Penang, with several posters criticising Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng appearing along Carnavon Street here on Tuesday (March 20).

Penang Barisan chairman Teng Chang Yeow said they were responsible for the posters.

He said it was meant as a reminder to Penangites that the state government had announced 51 projects since 2008, but nothing had yet to materialise.

The posters show Lim's face with words that read "Boasting Pakatan Harapan; 10 years; 51 empty promises" and are strung across the street.

The posters appear in several languages.

It is learnt that two men on motorcycles had put up the posters.

The Star is waiting for a response from the police and the Penang Island City Council (MBPP).

MBPP officers were seen taking down the posters Tuesday morning.
