Encounter with Langkawi MP: Rubbish Issue

I recently bumped into Dato' Paduka Abu Bakar Taib Member of Parliament of Langkawi while waiting for my flight going back to Kuala Lumpur. I ask Dato' to comment highlighted by tourists with regards to the rubbish & cleanliness issue around the Island in the local newspaper. Refer here.

Below are his response.

"I am concerned about the cleanliness in Langkawi especially around the areas of Pulau Payar, Pantai Chenang, Pantai Tengah, Kilim Geopark, Teluk Yu, Telaga Tujuh, the Kuah town itself and all the Islands in Langkawi". 

"Eventhough actions have been taken by the local council, the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) and others, I urge the authorities to STEP UP actions & effort to ensure the cleanliness of Langkawi. I also urge the residents of Langkawi & also tourists which number more than 2.4 million visitors to help this effort". 
"I've also spoken in Parliament on the issue of cleanliness, in the previous parliament sessions and requested the relevant Ministeries to ensure the pristine beauty and cleanliness of Langkawi is maintained. Last but not least Langkawi must be "Cantik, Indah & Bersih".

Dato' Paduka Abu Bakar Taib.

AL :-
Both government & local authorities must give good response by comments of public & the Langkawi Member of Parliament with regards to the concern raised. As well, i suggest the hotels once i a while carry out events such as beach cleanup with tourist & fellow guest. Local residents also should not take cleanliness issue lightly. Together we make Langkawi "Cantik, Indah & Bersih" or "Pretty, Beautiful, & clean"
