GEORGE TOWN: There is no link between DAP and the Asia Comic Cultural Museum, says state DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow.
The Penang Chief Minister said this, following an allegation of distribution of political propaganda material at the museum, and denied that the state government is connected to it.
He, however, admitted that the museum did receive funds from the state government in the form of annual allocation to pay the rent at ICT Mall as it was considered the state's tourism product.
"We have nothing to do with the comic, we know nothing about it," he said during a press conference after attending the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the state government and Fusionex at St Giles Wembley Hotel here on Thursday (Oct 17).
The Penang Chief Minister said the state government also did not interfere in the operations and management of the museum and has been allocating funds to the museum for several years.
He also reiterated that Penang DAP has no relation or connection with the museum.
Chow was commenting on a Facebook post by former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak that the museum is spreading DAP-fuel propaganda to school children.
It is learnt that the comic book titled "Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) for Win Winsm" has been removed by the museum management.
