Tanjung Bunga residents are holding another coffee party on Saturday from 4.00pm to 5.00pm, this time at Solok Tan Jit Seng behind the Tanjung Bunga Secondary School. The tea party aims to bring together residents who are concerned about dangerous hill-slope development.
The state assembly member for the area, Teh from the DAP, who seems to share the residents’ concern, has confirmed his attendance. The residents have also invited the Chief Minister and other elected reps from the area to the event.
They are hoping that the CM will turn up to show solidarity with them.
On several occasions, Guan Eng has taken commendably strong positions against developers of other projects in Penang.
On 14 May 2008, he reportedly visited the Gurney Plaze extension site and expressed dissatisfaction that the developer did not heed warnings by the local authorities not to conduct construction work beyond the permitted hours.
On 30 May 2008, he visited the Times Square site after the state government reportedly received complaints of cracks in houses along that road.
Now, the Tanjung Bunga residents are hoping that he will attend in solidarity with them and share their concern about the dangerous hill-slope property development projects in their area.
