Ethnic cleansing in Penang property scene?

Penang State Local Government, Housing, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo said today that residents of more than 20 homes at the Taman Manggis People’s Housing Project (PPR) who were evicted and had their units locked up could file an appeal.

The Third Force has for years maintained that the state DAP administration was discriminative against the non-Chinese and deliberately transformed Penang into an enclave for the rich and famous with emphasis on investment by Hong Kong Chinese.

TTF hereby challenges Jagdeep to display the racial breakdown of those evicted at the Taman Manggis PPR and prove that all Chinese residents who were not served eviction notices are truly qualified to occupy their units.


PETALING JAYA: Penang State Local Government, Housing, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo said today that residents of more than 20 homes at the Taman Manggis People’s Housing Project (PPR) who were evicted and had their units locked up could file an appeal.

The said PPR is a low-cost public housing project along Jalan Zainal Abidin in George Town, Penang, comprising an 18-storey apartment complex bordered by Jalan Zainal Abidin on one side and Lorong Selamat on the other.

According to NST Online, residents of more than 20 homes at the PPR were evicted yesterday upon discovery that they no longer qualified to rent units there.


Hours ago, Jagdeep defended the eviction by calling it a “last resort,” claiming that those affected were given ample time to appeal or find other places to stay.

But not everyone agrees.

FMT quoted a senior citizen as saying she was “cruelly” evicted from her home of 12 years because she married an Indian national.

The Third Force has for years maintained that the state DAP administration was discriminative against the non-Chinese and deliberately transformed Penang into an enclave for the rich and famous with emphasis on investment by Hong Kong Chinese.

The previous Lim Guan Eng government selectively enforced licensing regulations, penalties and evictions on non-Chinese hawkers but continuously allowed Chinese food operators to sprawl businesses illegally along the streets of Chai Ling Park, Komtar and Sunway Hotel, among others.

TTF hereby challenges Jagdeep to display the racial breakdown of those evicted at the Taman Manggis PPR and prove that all Chinese residents who were not served eviction notices are truly qualified to occupy their units.

A study conducted by our team presents a compelling case against the Penang government bordering on “ethnic cleansing” activity in the state’s property scene.
