YB Sivarasa has spoken to me in respect of the above article in the SUN http://www.sun2surf.com/article.cfm?id=46647
and asked me to respond on his behalf as he is still on medical leave.
He has asked me to write officially on his behalf to the Datuk Bandar to request for a chronology of the events and also a copy of the said contract.
In the letter, we have also advised that the contract and other relevant documents should be made public via the MBPJ website in order that concerned stakeholders and the general public are fully informed of the history of the events here.
He has also asked me to say that he is confident that the Councillors in MBPJ are fully committed to principles of transparency and good governance and will ensure that the public hearing for the related planning approval scheduled for the 21st May will be conducted in a fair and transparent manner and will ultimately result in a just outcome.
We must all remember that such issues keep arising because of the abuses of power committed in the past. This is just another of the many examples in Petaling Jaya and Selangor where publicly owned land meant for public amenities was handed out to private parties for profit.
