More security for CM, but a danger to Komtar traders
By Phuah Ken Lin
GEORGE TOWN: Traders at Komtar are unhappy with the building management for partially closing several emergency exits for Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's personal safety.
They claimed that the closure of the five doors linking their stalls and the multi-storey car park had limited their options of getting out of the building in case of emergencies. The roller shutters and doors connecting the multi-storey car park on the second floor had being shut since Tuesday following an incident in which an elderly man confronted Lim over a housing dispute in Tanjung Tokong.
Several traders said the management had not consulted them on the matter.
Steadylah NST…you talk to a Hawker and to a Jeweller and you say that the Traders (with an ‘s’) at Komtar “are unhappy with the building management for partially closing several emergency exits for Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's personal safety”?
Well technically you are right…two traders does allow one to put an ‘s’ at the end of Trader!
Come on lah…are you that bankrupt of stories to tell about Penang? Why not write about the lovely beaches, the gastronomic hawker fare or even the nostalgic Ferry ride for those returning to Penang after being away for a while? Anyway your piece did give me my much needed daily chuckle at NST! Come on Editor - up your game a bit. I know your reporters have to ‘cari makan’ and you have your daily quota of ‘hantam Pakatan Rakyat ‘ stories to tell but guide them to be better reporters – not ask them to write drivel for Barisan Nasional…anyway when you write these kind of rubbish you do acknowledge that Guan Eng is a problem to BN. Thank you.
