LANGKAWI, May 17 — The newly elected Kuah state assemblyman, Mohd Firdaus Ahmad, has been forced to delay his tasks and operations at the Kuah Assemblyman Service Centre due to vandalism.
He said there were defects at the office premises, which was once occupied by former Kuah state assemblyman Nor Saidi Nanyan, and that it needed some time for repair works.
“I have not been able to carry out certain tasks for the Kuah state constituency since the day I won (in the 14th General Election) because I do not have an office.
“I hope (the repair works) can be completed within two to three days so that I can do my work,” he told reporters after distributing 600 packets of “bubur lambuk” (savoury rice porridge) to the less fortunate at the Adya Hotel here today.
Also present were Ayer Hangat state assemblyman Juhari Bulat and hotel manager, Razmi Rahmat.
Mohd Firdaus said he had discussed with Nor Saidi on the repair works and wanted the defects to be fixed immediately.
“We are not accusing anyone. In fact, we think that this should not have happened as that is a government building. Damaging government property is an offence and a waste if we use the people’s money to repair the damage,” he added. — Bernama
