Abdul Halim Saad, Director, MBI Licensing and Enforcement Department was quoted as saying that the stalls were demolished because they were located at a dangerous spot along a busy road.
After reading this news, a number of readers called about a stall which is occupying the pedestrian walkway at the junction of Jalan Tingkat Pasar and Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar. This is a very busy road and buses use the right side of the road next to the stall to turn into Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar. It is not safe for pedestrians to walk on the road. This stall has been there for a long time. Can Abdul Halim justify why he is allowing this stall to operate, instead of demolishing it?
