GEORGE TOWN, Oct 2 – The Penang Chinese New Year Celebration 2016 Secretariat Person in-charged refutes the statement issued by MCA Task Force Chief, Tan Hing Teik who accused the Penang State Government has yet to settle the allocation balance pledged for Penang Chinese Clan Council.
The Penang Chinese New Year Celebration 2016 Secretariat Person in-charged, Wong Yuee Harng said the statement has drawn to their attention that the accusation posted by MCA is untrue. He said they hereby deny that the the said problem remains unsolved.
“In fact, the issue has been settled during the meeting of Penang Chinese Clan Council committees with The Chief Minister of Penang. The Penang Chinese Clan Council working committees are working on the Penang Chinese New Year Celebration 2017 preparation,” Wong said.
“We look forward to it as one of the major event in year 2017. We do not wish to see anyone attempts to sabotage the working progress as well as the mutual understanding set between the Penang State Government and Penang Chinese Clan Council. Please let the working committees focus on their preparations and kindly stop politicising the issue”, he said.
In additional, Wong said Tan Hing Teik should not repeat the lies that may give wrong input to the public over the issue. He said it is obvious that the MCA statement merely helps Tan Hing Teik to achieve his political agenda, such as mislead public in questioning the Penang State Government integrity for wrong reason.
