KUALA LUMPURTan Chee Teong, the MCA candidate for the upcoming Balakong election on 8 September, wants to be a check-and-balance in the state meeting.
During a press conference he was campaigning on Taman Indah Balakong here today during his third day, Tan has ensured that he will act as a kind of control and balance and will urge the government to do good with his manifesto.
Tan said that local residents often pay toll to come to places like the city center of Kuala Lumpur, Semenyih, Sungai Long and Sungai Chua.
He added that the previous Barisan Nasional government had enforced two tolls.
"Pakatan had previously spoken about abolishing tolls, but since there are some setbacks, they should at least reduce tolls to ease the burden of the people," he said.
Tan also continued to address the sudden tidal wave that plagued Taman Indah residents due to retention basins and drainage systems that still had to be upgraded.
"Overflows with flooding have been common in Taman Indah for more than two decades, despite the existing retention basins and the drainage system," said Tan. He added that he would urge the municipality to solve the problem immediately.
"I will work for the people, because whatever they stand for, I also see, because I am also a local," he said.
Tan will compete against DAP's Wong Siew Ki in the upcoming interim election on 8 September.
