THE Kuala Lumpur Hawkers and Petty Traders Association has hit out at the Bukit Bintang Umno division leader for “stereotyping” traders in Petaling Street by accusing them all of selling fake products.

Association chairman Ang Say Tee even challenged Umno Bukit Bintang chief Zainal Rafique to visit Petaling Street, or better known as Chinatown, to see for himself the businesses being run there.

  • Some trruth in the views offered by others. The Association Chairman Ang shud listen and make remedies especially the volume of foreign workers who are only attracting their own kind to the place during the weekend. Tourists and the locals are shunning the place to avoid unpleasantness and troubles.

  • Hmm............ no comment from Chairman Ang on the foreign workers. I wonder why. Anyway the traders are not the only one to blame as regards foreign workers flooding our country. It is the govt. of the day who should take full responsibility for allowing millions of them into our land. The root cause is CORRUPTION & ABUSE OF POWERS. There seems to be no commitment at all to stop mass immigration of these foreigners since they are of much use to the powers that be. Our country is slowly but surely losing its identity. KL does not belong to Malaysians anymore. Scary & sad...........
