‘Se­lan­gor­shoul­dreturn PPRLem­bahSubang’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: The Se­lan­gor gov­ern­ment has been urged to re­turn the man­age­ment of the Lem­bah Subang 1 Pub­lic Hous­ing Project (PPR) to the Ur­ban Well­be­ing, Hous­ing and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Min­istry.

Its min­is­ter, Tan Sri Noh Omar, said this needs to be done as the Se­lan­gor gov­ern­ment has failed to man­age the PPR prop­erly.

“I was in­formed that PPR Lem­bah Subang 1 is owned by the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, it was also built above our land.

“The Se­lan­gor gov­ern­ment only han­dles the man­age­ment as­pect and there was no for­mal agree­ment on it,” Noh told me­dia af­ter a work­ing visit to the PPR Lem­bah Subang 2 here.

“The Se­lan­gor gov­ern­ment al­ways brags about their suc­cess, but in the end, the peo­ple are the ones who pay the price,” he said.

On Sun­day, Noh also blamed the Se­lan­gor gov­ern­ment for the de­plorable con­di­tions of the PPRs in the state.

Noh said most of its PPR flats are man­aged by lo­cal coun­cils and come un­der the au­thor­ity of the state gov­ern­ment.

Mean­while, re­spond­ing to the re­cent scuf­fles be­tween the Red Shirts move­ment and Ber­sih 2.0 at Sabak Ber­nam re­cently, Noh, who is also the Se­lan­gor Umno Li­ai­son Com­mit­tee Chair­man said ac­tion must be taken on those who com­mit crime.

“I am on the side of the po­lice. The po­lice are there to up­hold the law, they know how to do their jobs.

“In the end, we must re­spect the law. We must re­spect the rules and we must re­spect the po­lice,” he said. – by Aiezat Fadzell
