Businesses close early

Shayal Devi

SOME businesses in Rakiraki closed early yesterday after heavy rain caused flooding in parts of town.

Prominent business owner George Shiu Raj said this was nothing new for them.

"We are concerned but we can only do so much," he said.

"A lot of business owners have closed up shop and a lot of them are affected, so it is a great concern to us," he said.

Meanwhile, a tender was advertised seeking a contractor to dredge the Penang River.

During a public consultation in Rakiraki, Minister for Waterways Dr Mahendra Reddy had said they were looking at a comprehensive program — a three-year program for Rakiraki.

This was expected to begin in the next one and a half months.
