Billboard controversy in PJ
A huge billboard in Petaling Jaya with the face of Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim has sparked off a row among residents. PJ folks, like other Malaysians, have long been sick with similar billboards showing Barisan Nasional leaders. For ordinary Malaysians, these billboards are just another ego trip for these politicians. But BN leaders in Selangor are claiming their billboards had e-mail and handphone numbers for the people to call them. This one, with Khalid, has nothing. State Exco member Ronnie Liu said the billboard was put up without the state government's knowledge and that the state did not spend a single sen. What's your take?
