Cao Guanyou: If the SRS railway plan is followed, the LRT can start construction within this year

(Bukit Mertajam, 13th) Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow said that if the Penang LRT project is carried out in accordance with the railway plan submitted by the previously appointed SRS Consortium consortium, construction will definitely start within this year because the railway plan has been approved. Environmental assessment reports, etc. have also been approved.

When asked whether the LRT project could be started within this year, he said that last month the federal Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRT Corp) had sent personnel to report to the Penang State Executive Council in order to obtain the state government’s approval for the LRT project. After making a decision, prepare to submit a cabinet memorandum to the cabinet and seek approval from the cabinet so that the next step can be made.

When questioned after attending the Penang DAP New Year’s Day celebration today, Chow Kon Yeow said that the state government can only wait for the cabinet’s decision to know the latest progress of the project.

He said it would be better for the federal government to announce the details of the LRT plan.

The Penang DAP held a New Year’s greetings. Guests at the main table and others congratulated the attendees for the New Year.

Chow Kon Yeow is also the Penang Chairman of the Action Party. In his speech, he thanked the voters of Penang for allowing the state government to continue to be in power. Although he lost several seats in the state election, this was still a victory worth cherishing.

He said that as party chairman Lim Guan Eng said, although there were many attempts to overthrow the unity government, the government had proven its capabilities and gained the support of the people and established a unity government to govern under the wise leadership of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

“Seeing the party veteran Tan Sri Lim Kit Siang reminds me that in the past few decades, Lim Kit Siang would lecture candidates in every election. If they are supported to become the people’s representative, they must play a good role to bring the voice of the people. Go to parliament to resolve the matter, ensure that the people are represented and stand up for their needs when they are in dire straits, take care of them and solve the problems, while ensuring that the democratic process is better, democracy and human rights are better, and when all terms are completed and the constituencies are handed back to the party , this constituency must be a better constituency than before, that is, it must gain the support of more people. This is how we fulfill our responsibility as people’s representatives.”

He said that he also kept in mind that when he completed his term, he had already done his best when handing over the chief position to his successor. I also expressed my expectations on many occasions. However, Cao Guanyou cannot do all aspects of the work alone. It requires the cooperation of the party, government teams and even the business circles and people’s organizations outside the party.

Action Party Chairman Lim Guan Eng said that entering the Year of the Dragon, he has witnessed that the unity government can still maintain power to this day, proving that the claims that the government will step out of power are all rumors.

He said that it is not easy to form a unity government. The DAP and Umno have been hostile for decades. However, in order to have a stable government and follow the instructions of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to form a unity government, although there are different views and opinions, if everyone can Understand the “red lines” of the other party and do not step on them. He believes and has confidence that the unity government can be in power for five years and can be in power again in the next general election.

Also speaking at the meeting were Working Committee Chairman and DAP Penang State Publicity Secretary Ong Lili, DAP Organization Secretary and Penang Vice-President Sim Chee Keong, DAP Penang Vice-President Zailier and DAP Penang Acting Chairman Jia Rixing.

Also present were Penang Chinese Assembly Chairman Tan Sri Tan Koon Hai, Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce President Datuk Seri Fong Yan Hua, Barisan Nasional Penang Chairman Datuk Musa, and DAP veteran Tan Sri Lim Kit Siang.
