Penang Global City Centre PGCC

- "Nothing to review”:
Lim Guan Eng

There was at one time widespread apathy and institutionalised complaisance under BN rule.

No wonder Malaysia is now in such a dreadful state, you must have seen the decaying infrastructure, non-maintained buildings, overt bribery and corruption, the brazen plundering, the universal misuse of power, fearless non-accountability, the list is very long.

In Penang, there was the contrived PGCC project, the developers Abad Naluri Sdn. Bhd., are said to be closely related to the UNMO leadership.

(as is the UMNO linked company UEM which is building the Penang Second Bridge and interconnected infrastructure projects, and other companies, such as, Equine Capital Bhd. which was to build the new race course, to replace the one which the PGCC was supposed to occupy, and implement other projects in the Batu Kawan area on the mainland part of Penang)

The PGCC project will not benefit the people of Penang, in fact it will be festering sore which will cause great harm far and wide.

It will of course make a few well connected opportunists revoltingly rich.

The Malaysian way (culture) was to grim and bear it, this pathetic subservient attitude has changed now that there is a new State Government in Penang under the leadership of Chief Minister Lim Guang Eng, and also new governments in Perak, Selangor, and Kedah, as well as in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.

Now Penang can, and must, stand up for itself, and not give the BN UMNO led Federal Government a free hand to oppress Penang whilst simultaneously bleeding the country dry

Penangites, generally are strongly opposed the PGCC and other wasteful and non-beneficial, environmentally disastrous projects which will further tarnish the Pearl of the Orient.

The Wind of Change is blowing every stronger.

The Sun Malaysia, reported

“Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said on Wednesday there is no need to review the controversial Penang Global City Centre (PGCC) project as it had not been given any official approval in the first place.

He made the revelation after the Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) and Town and Country Planning Department reported to him that the council had not given the green light to project developer Abad Naluri Sdn Bhd for the RM25 billion mega project.

“I was informed that not a single letter of approval was given for the project by any government agency, so it does not need a review,” Lim said.”
