ALOR SETAR, 9 Feb 2017: 

The Kedah state government plans to ask the federal government to review the annual lease rate paid by the Penang state government to Kedah under the 1786 Lease Agreement.

State Religious Affairs, Tourism and Heritage, and Public Works Committee chairman Datuk Mohd Rawi Abdul Hamid also said the state government strongly disagrees with the proposal to make Langkawi part of the Federal Territories.

As ‘landlords’, he noted the state government had the right to object to the Federal Territory proposal.

“Therefore, we are not only strongly opposed to the proposal to make Langkawi part of the Federal Territories, but will also try to take back Penang.”

He was commenting on the proposal by Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to include Langkawi as part of the Federal Territories.
