Rais Yatim was talking cock again

25 million allocated for Penang world heritage preservation was channeled to Khazanah instead of Penang state government.

This big mouth minister politicized the fund disbursement and himself shamelessly blamed LGE for playing politics in heritage preservation matter.

There is no Penang DAP government which is another purported twist to incite racial sentiment by this big mouth minister.

Heritage preservation shouldn’t be politicised

GEORGE TOWN: Information Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim today asked the Penang DAP government to be more proactive in the promotion of activities which enhance heritage and the arts.

Lately, the Penang government was seen to be lagging in efforts associated with heritage compared to the Melaka government, he told reporters here.

Dr Rais said the federal government had allocated about RM2.8 million for three projects to rehabilitate heritage buildings in the state, namely the World Heritage Office in Lebuh Armenia, the St George’s Church in Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling and the Penang Malays Heritage Gallery in Jalan Hutton.

“Heritage is not a matter of politics. Heritage, culture and the arts are matters pertaining to nationhood. As such, we hope that the state government will be more spirited and expend a little for activities pertaining to heritage, culture and the arts,” he said.

He said more cooperation from the state government would contribute a little to the administration borne by the federal government.
