PETALING JAYA: MCA's service centres nationwide are shutting down due to a lack of funds after Barisan Nasional's loss of federal power.
A branch leader said the service centres could no longer match the party's claim of providing services to the community as funds were no longer coming, a news portal reported today.
"The voters don't want us anymore, there's no point in service," The Malaysian Insight quoted said a Bandar Tun Razak party officer as saying. "Furthermore, we are now the opposition; we don't have the funds to keep the service centres running."
"Our job now is to keep check on the government. Now, if the people have any problems, they should go look for DAP and PKR, not MCA."
The centres had helped members of the community solve their problems, ranging from those who could not get identity cards to issues related to the local authorities.
