Media statement by DAP Johor State Chairman and MP for Kluang Liew Chin Tong on 26th December 2014 in Kluang

DAP Johor calls on the Johor State Government and Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Khaled Nordin to instruct all state agencies to include Opposition elected representatives in the flood relief effort to showcase a bipartisan approach in handling the imminent flood situation in Johor.

DAP Johor expresses its solidarity with flood victims everywhere in the country, especially in the East Coast states.

In Johor, areas affected by the floods include Plentong, Johor Jaya, last night and in Kluang and Renggam this morning. We are deeply concerned with the possibility of a more serious flood in the days to come.

In order to coordinate relief in the state, DAP Johor has decided to form a Task Force headed by DAP State Secretary and State Assemblyperson for Penggeram, Sdri Gan Peck Cheng today. The Task Force will also liaise with Johor PAS and PKR leadership to coordinate our relief effort.

Johor DAP Special Task Force on Flood Relief

Chairwoman: Gan Peck Cheng
Vice chairman: S. Ramakrisnan, Tan Chen Choon
Secretary: George Poh
Tresurer: Chua Wee Beng
Committee Members: Mazir Ibrahim (Southwest Johor), Lim Eng Guan (Northern Johor), Ee Chin Li (Northeast Johor), Wong Shu Qi (Southwest Johor) and Ng Siam Luang (Southern Johor).

The State committee would like to urge all Johor DAP members to assist in flood relief efforts in order to minimise the impact of this difficult time on the residents. We will work together to ensure that this disaster is mitigated with the utmost priority being the safety and wellbeing of the people.
