IPOH – A durian fest is NOT happening in Teluk Intan tomorrow, contrary to a viral news on social media.
Sungai Manik state assemblyman Datuk Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin today dismissed the viral news as false and described it as an irresponsible act.
Zainol Fadzi, who is Perak Public Amenities, Infrastructure, Energy and Water Committee chairman, said he had received scores of telephone calls from friends and acquaintances from Perak and other states asking whether there was such a fest.
“What if some people believed the news and came to Teluk Intan?” he said when contacted by Bernama.
The viral news, with a picture of heaps of durian at a two-hectare site, stated that a durian fest would be held from 10 am tomorrow at a paddy field somewhere between Sungai Manik and Tukang Sidin and that it was only for people from Perak. – BERNAMA
