Assistant Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Edward Yong Oui Fah has expressed disappointment over the poor maintenance of cleanliness and facilities at the Sri Tanjong Market here.
Edward, who made a spot check on the market on Sunday, found many problems, including wrecked garbage bins and wet dirty floor.
At the bread and cake stalls, many people were sleeping on the shelves or playing cards. The fans were still on although the hawkers had gone home, while sewage appeared to be discharged into the drain.
Edward strongly urged the relevant agency to take immediate action to overcome the problems. “Besides keeping the market clean, I hope the Agency would ensure all the wrecked facilities here are repaired and maintained from time to time,” he added.
