MELAKA: The Melaka government is curtailing the power of four local councils in implementing or granting contracts to companies, especially in projects that involve the collection of money from the public.

This decision to apply a "chokehold" on the four local councils is believed to have come about after a Friday (Jan 4) incident in which residents reportedly torched a newly built parking booth in Taman Nirwana, Klebang Besar.
