GEORGE TOWN: A group of 60 people held a protest Friday urging Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng and Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy to step down in regards to issues involving the Indian community.
During the brief protest on the ground floor of Komtar, the group led by M.V. Mathiyalagan Veeriah, held up banners and called for the resignation of both politicians.
The group was made up of representatives from five non-profit organisations and temple representatives in Seberang Prai.
Earlier, Mathiyalagan met Ramasamy’s special officer V. Elemperu and handed over the group’s two-page memorandum highlighting five issues regarding alleged mismanagement of temple funds in Penang.
Mathiyalagan said the group was unhappy with decisions made by Ramasamy who is chairman of the state’s Hindu Endowment Board, which manages the funds of many temples in Penang.
The group dispersed at noon.
