New township for Kuala Sepetang if BN wins

Kuala Sepetang voters should give their mandate to Ismail to get a new township.

Gerakan Wanita Chief Datuk Tan Lian Hoe promises a new township for the voters in Kuala Sepetang if Barisan Nasional candidate Ismail Saffian wins the Bukit Gantang by-election.

The question arises: Can Pas build a new township for the voters in Kuala Sepetang if Nizar Jamaluddin wins?

Datuk Tan Lian Hoe was confident the people of Kuala Sepetang would give their mandate to Ismail, although the Bukit Gantang seat fell to the opposition in the last election,

She said the issue that most of the people in Kuala Sepetang are squatting on state land would be brought up at the state government level after the by-election.

Tan said, the issue will be resolved once and for all. It would be irresponsible if the government just gave them ownership because they live so close to the river, it is dangerous.

The only option is to create a new township, with houses, but nearby because their livelihood depends on the river, she said.

Tan said details on the township would be decided by the state government after the elections.
