BUTTERWORTH: The state will consider naming a road after late Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) president S.M. Mohamed Idris, says Local Government Com­mittee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo.“If there are suggestions to name a road after him, we will definitely take it into consideration,” he said during a press conference at the Seberang Prai Municipal Council headquarters yesterday.

He was responding to a question raised by the press about non-governmental organisations urging the state to name a road after Mohamed Idris, who passed away on May 17.Among the suggestions were renaming a road at the rear of the CAP headquarters near the State Mosque which is now called Jalan Kennedy after Englishman P. Ken­nedy, the president of the Penang Municipal Commissioners in 1889.
