Are there 2 Bayan Bay reclamation projects? A pack of lies and falsehood from Penang State Government

TengChangYeow 20151224 Penang Reclamation Project Bayan Bay BIPress statement by Penang Barisan Nasional State Chairman Teng Chang Yeow

The DAP-led State Government is indulging in a pack of lies and falsehood. Based on their lies and falsehood, Penang is set to get two semi covered international standard Velodrome, 6 basketball courts, 2 international standard swimming pools and two extra football fields. All are in the Bayan Bay area.

One was announced in the 2016 State budget in November 2015, and the other approved by the State Planning Committee in August 2013. The Deputy Chief Minister in his press interview with China Press confirmed that the reclamation I exposed is a different project.

If it is not lies and falsehood, it shows Ideal Gim Venture Sdn Bhd has been given two reclamation projects without tender in Bayan Bay, Bayan Baru.

First project was 13 acres which were approved by the State Planning Committee on 29 August 2013, and second project, 25 acres as announced in the State’s 2016 budget on 6 November 2015. Is Ideal Gim Venture Sdn Bhd such a privileged developer?

Both the Chief Minister and his deputy maintained that the Bayan Bay reclamation was approved in 2015. If that is the case, then the approval by the State Planning Committee on 29 August 2013 of 13 acres must surely be a different one. That would also show that another approval of reclamation was made secretly!

If they continue to maintain that the reclamation I exposed is a different project, they are creating another lies and falsehood.

The State Government had maintained that they had approved only 2 reclamation projects totaling 60 acres. With them confirming what I exposed as a different project, it means the State Government has approved more than 2 projects totaling more than 60 acres! They are now creating more lies to cover up the lies they had made!

It’s a sad thing that as a Deputy Chief Minister, he is being treated as a messenger to cover up for the lies and falsehood of the State Administration. The Deputy Chief Minister is far from acquiring the art of lies and falsehood from his boss!
