GEORGE TOWN – The Penang government continues to hold discussions with the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) and the Malaysian Chief Government Security Office (CGSO) to ensure the state’s sea reclamation project does not affect national security, said Jagdeep Singh Deo.
The Penang Housing, Local Government and Town Planning Committee chairman said serious attention is being given to the aspect of Malaysian military secrets in the implementation of the Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project in the southern waters of Penang and in Bagan Ajam, Butterworth.
“The state government has held a meeting on the proposal of the master plan for the project, which was also attended by RMAF and CGSO, to discuss issues on security, land, and so on, because we are aware of the RMAF base’s location near the area.
“National security will not be compromised and this discussion is still ongoing,” he told the state assembly today in response to an an oral question from Penang opposition leader Datuk Muhamad Yusoff Mohd Noor (Sg Dua-BN), who expressed concern that the PSR project would expose Malaysia’s military secrets.
On a supplementary question from Yusoff as to whether the mixed development of the sea reclamation project would also have affordable housing, Jagdeep said it would. – Bernama, November 30, 2021
