'Poorly designed abattoirs without proper waste disposal and treatment plants pose a serious environmental and public health threat. I refer to the recent threat by the Kedah DAP state assembly person to pull out from Pakatan over the issue of the demolishing of the polluting pig abattoir. I am not a member of any political party so it does not matter to me if this Kedah DAP assemblyperson quits his party or the Pakatan coalition. This DAP rep is just trying to exploit the abattoir issue and turn it into a racial one for his political agenda. I support the Kedah local council’s action to demolish the pig abattoir which was situated in the midst of a residential area. I have nothing against pigs and, in fact, I enjoy a ‘bah kut teh’ dish very much. But it is all about public health and environmental pollution.
Poorly designed abattoirs without proper waste disposal and treatment plants pose a serious environmental and public health threat. Untreated discharge from abattoirs can contaminate the immediate environment and the waterways. Those who are dependent on the waterways (rivers and streams) for their agricultural and other daily activities are at risk. Ideally, abattoirs of this nature should be located far away from the public and should be designed such that all waste generated is treated or incinerated before discharge into the environment. The Kedah local council has made the right decision to direct the abattoir to be relocated. The public, especially the Chinese community, should view this positively.
If the DAP continues with this political strategy to stir up the Chinese community with its hidden political agenda it is only going create unnecessary racial tension in the country. DAP should realise that when it comes to public health and safety there can be no compromises. The abattoir will have to be relocated and I believe the Chinese community in Kedah understands the rationale for the local council's action.
Grow up DAP!
