Penang Citizens’ Organizations Raise AnakPinang One by One to Speak for the People
Penang has long been the base of many civic organizations, and now there is another rise of AnakPinang, which is known as the ordinary people.
The organization was founded in October and currently has 15 members, slogans in the local civic organization with the slogan “For a Better Penang”.
The promoter is Timothy Tye, who said that because no civic organization speaks on behalf of ordinary people, especially on the topic of the blueprint for transportation in Penang, it is one of the reasons for the AnakPinang organization.
The multi-billion ringgit integrated transport blueprint designed to relieve traffic hindered by the Penang State Government Cypriot problem, once implemented will be phased in gradually implemented.
However, the plan has led to a fierce rebound from a number of NGOs, including the Penang Forum, the Penang Consumers Association, the Friends of Nature Malaysia, and the Malaysian Nature Association Penang Branch.
Timothy Tye has a different opinion. He told The Perspective of Malaysia that these organizations are out of touch with the local people in Penang who have to face long-term obstruction every day.
