Dahlan: Penang’s confrontational attitude towards Federal costing state

GEORGE TOWN: Penang is losing out as a financial, investment and industrial centre due to the state government’s confrontational attitude towards the Federal Government, said Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan (pix).

“I travel all over and investors want to invest in a state which synchronises with the Federal Government as they know the ultimate power lies with the central Government,” said the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department when opening the Bukit Gelugor Umno delegates annual assembly here on Sunday.




“As a minister, I am fair to all states and have encouraged investors to come to Penang as do I not discriminate against any state.

“But how do you work with a state government which continuously spews lies, hatred, twists facts and adopts a confrontational attitude towards the Federal Government?” he said.

The state government had lost the trust of the people due to promises which were not kept, Abdul Rahman claimed.
