Contact numbers of reps now included in billboard - The Star

Jun 24, 2008

THE controversial billboard which has a large portrait of Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim in Jalan SS2/24, Petaling Jaya has seen some minor modification.

The billboard, which was criticised by certain quarters, now has the mobile numbers and e-mail addresses of Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua and Damansara Utama state assemblyman Dr Cheah Wing Yin.

New look: The billboard now carries the contact details of Pua and Dr Cheah.

StarMetro in an article on June 12 in which residents argued that the billboard put up by an advertising company served no purpose if it does not have the contact details and e-mail addresses of elected representatives.

Khalid when asked whether Pakatan Rakyat would follow the practice by the previous state government to provide the mobile numbers of MPs and state assemblymen in Selangor said they had no plans to do so.

That is what we will say.
Sheer wanton waste.
PR must NOT accept such billboard in the first place.
If theres any companies which wanted to say thank you or congratulations advertisements to PR , dont do it.
PR must issue a directive and make it a rule NOT to accept such adverts.
Better to advise such companies to donate to charity.

Billboards with image of current government such as badawi and najib are already making Malaysians puke and getting pissed at.

As a voter, i am voicing my displeasure and is disgusted to see any billboards with any politician face on it.
I am sure there are many thousands of voters who agrees on this.
