GEORGE TOWN, July 12 (Bernama) -- A total of 100 residents of Tanjong Tokong want the state government to dissolve the existing Village Development and Security Committee (JKKN), claiming that it is dysfunctional and monopolised by PAS.
Madrasah Al-Taqwa Committee secretary, Abdul Wahab Sini Ibramsah, also questioned the appointment of the new JKKK chairman who was not a local resident.
"We want someone from Tanjong Tokong to head the JKKK, someone who knows about the origin of the village and is capable of bringing development, not destruction," he told reporters here today.
He said the committee had sent a letter to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng Abdul to protest the appointment of the new JKKK chairman and was awaiting response from the state leadership.
Abdul Wahab also claimed that most of the JKKK committee members were not locals and alleged wrongdoings by the chairman pertaining to land sale in the village.

He also alleged that the JKKK chairman had demolished a house in the vicinity of Madrasah Al-Taqwa.
"He claimed the house was his, when everybody knows that the house was built by the madrasah and leased to his father," he added.
