NGO says people are afraid to speak or voice objections for fear of upsetting CM
GEORGE TOWN: THE normally cool and calm S.M. Mohamed Idris has finally snapped and the cause of his displeasure is none other than the Penang government, namely Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
Mohamed Idris said Lim's style of governance had turned Penang into a place where an "atmosphere of intolerance" prevailed and people were afraid to speak and voice their objections for fear of upsetting him.
He said it had come to a situation where the state government thought it was more knowledgeable than anyone else and should not be questioned now that they had been chosen by the people.
