The two housing estates which have a population of about 40,000 are particularly worried since they are located barley 5km away from the proposed coal-fired plant site at POIC Seguntor and, therefore, most vulnerable to sooty particulate of toxic fly ash from the chimneys, said Chow.

"The gathering was organized by the residents to call on the State Government and the relevant authorities to halt the plan to build the coal-fired power plant immediately", said Chow.

"It saw a strong presence of the Sandakan Anti-Coal Power Plant Action Committee members, headed by Chairman Stephen Wong", Chow noted.
