KUCHING DAP Socialist Youth (Dapsy) has removed the stickers bearing the Chinese road names from several road signs in and around Kuching.
The wing’s head Daphne Ting said a delegation from Dapsy Kuching would go to the Kuching North City Commission (DBKU) tomorrow to pay any fines for the alleged vandalism and request the commission to restore bilingual road signs, Sin Chew Daily reported.
This she said, was according to the plan announced by State DAP chairman Chong Chieng Jen yesterday. Ting also declined to disclose when the stickers were removed.
Yesterday, Chong announced that Dapsy Kuching would remove the stickers placed on road signs along Jalan Main Bazaar, Wayang Street and Jalan Greenhill. The wing’s leaders had on Thursday placed then on the road signs, all of which fall under the jurisdiction of DBKU.
The party had insisted that the bilingual road signs were helpful in tourists hotspots as well as promote cultural diversity in the state.
