Authorities urged to clamp down on such irresponsible behaviour.
This after clean estates were ruined overnight by dirty leaflet materials left outside residents’ doors.
One resident, Fan Dui Dang, said: “This is not right. How can anyone leave rubbish outside my door when I am not around?”
“Do you want me to go to the grassroots volunteers’ houses at night and leave rubbish outside their door?”
“I can, but I won’t, because I am not so free and I don’t harbour ambitions to be voted into political office.”
Other residents who received the leaflets said grassroots volunteers are doing the people staying in the estate a disservice and courting trouble instead.
Another resident, Lai Fan Fa, said the grassroots volunteers’ actions are highly deplorable and irresponsible: “The grassroots volunteers are exposing the residents to crime. My neighbour was out of town and the leaflets at the door were uncollected for two days revealing that the occupants were not around.”
“This is stupid. Setting people up to be robbed.”
