A former fisherman of 10 years, Mohd Nasarudin Sultan, has rapped the Penang government for engaging with NGOs which reject the state's proposed Penang South Reclamation (PSR) project.

Nasarudin (photo, above) said by interacting too much with these NGOs, the state government is seen as a "weak parent" as the project, which he deemed as beneficial to the fishing community, gets delayed.
