Residents of Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur are upset with Ah Long stickers pasted on a billboard near a bus stop in Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi.
A resident, who wanted to be known only as Tan, said City Hall should remove the stickers as they were an eye sore.
“The billboard was placed there to promote the Sea Games, but it has been defaced by the stickers.
“It is not only messing up the bus stop, but also gives a negative image of the country,” he said.
Tan said City Hall should work with other agencies to address the growing number of illegal advertisements.
The City Hall said it was aware of the situation following complaints from residents.
“We have hired a contractor to clean it up.
“We will also conduct checks in other areas,” he said.
When asked if any action would be taken against the culprits, he said the matter fell under the purview of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission.
