REJECTED OUT OF HAND: A noodle shop owner spurns Mr Tung's hand during the Chief Executive's visit to Tsuen Wan yesterday. Mr Tung endured the embarrassing snub on a tour of environmental and hygiene improvement works in Tsuen Wan. The Chief Executive walked towards the man, who had his hands folded, after greeting several others. The onlooker, who gave his name only as Chow and who runs a noodle shop in the district, waved to show he did not want to shake hands with the smiling Chief Executive. Mr Chow said he had the right not to shake hands, adding: 'Nobody in Hong Kong likes him.' Mr Tung said: 'I shook many hands earlier. I'm delighted there were many people who shook hands warmly with me. It's not surprising that one among them did not want to. 'Hong Kong is a very free [society]. Everyone has his or her own choice.' He dismissed claims the snub showed his low popularity. He also said the Government would provide 8,000 temporary jobs by the end of March. Mr Tung said Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung would give details today of the remaining 24,000 jobs to be created under a Policy Address pledge.
