PAS has failed to curb rise in entertainment outlets, says Mukhriz
JITRA, June 30 — Kedah Umno Liaison Committee deputy chairman Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir today claimed that the PAS-led state government had failed to control the growth of entertainment outlets in the state since taking over the reins of the administration in 2008.
Mukhriz, who is deputy international trade and industry minister, said since then, many entertainment outlets had mushroomed in the state, mainly in remote areas such as Sik, Padang Serai and Baling.
The three districts did not have any entertainment outlets prior to PAS coming to power in the state, he added.
“The state government should control the growth of entertainment outlets and act against unlicensed operators,” he said when met at the mini education carnival at Sekolah Menengah Sains Kubang Pasu, here.
The Jerlun MP said both Muslims and non-Muslims alike were uncomfortable with the growth of the entertainment outlets without any regulation or demand for them. — Bernama
