1) WE are not against the government – WE just want to point out certain things, so that, the decisions made by the government would be the right decision and be beneficial to the rakyat of the present generation and generations to come. We don’t want the government to be misled by certain people.
2) WE are not against the project – it’s a beautifully done piece of work – hundreds or thousands of man hours must have gone into it. It’s a waste to throw it away. The problem is that the planners may not have known about the aesthetic, sentimental and heritage value of Tg. Aru Beach.
They got the planning factor not the human factor – the citizens’ factor.
