Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad says it’s only fair for activists to hear his side of the story on the Taman Rimba Kiara issue. – The Malaysian Insight file pic, May 16, 2019.

ACTIVISTS opposed to the development of Taman Rimba Kiara should meet the Federal Territories Ministry in person with their allegations, its under-fire minister, Khalid Samad, said today.

“Why don’t you come and see me instead of making statements in the media?” Khalid said at a press conference.

  • Why doesn't Khalid, as FT Minister take the initiative to meet them instead?

  • Minister expecting rakyat paying homage to him rather than turun padang explaining to the people. Life is too good now?

  • Why! Are they that busy! Just fix an appointment anywhere for a meeting Cynthia or ambiga do you people have such a busy schedule that a minister needs to crawl to meet up u want to know the story why! The problem was during dumshit umno time. They should not be Arrogant.

  • Khalid you asked for it, why appeal when the Court of Appeal has already ruled that the Public Hearing was flawed. Then let the Rule of Law runs its course by having a properly constituted Public Objection Hearing to be called again and a proper process to follow suit.

    After all, the original decision was not your doing why so protective of the flawed agreement. Smells bad

  • Khalid too busy in Layang Layang or poking his nose in whatever? We the residents in the area want the TTDI matter suspended until a thorough independent investigation is carried out (not by him). Does he not get that allowing wrongful actions to proceed is the same as condoning it? Folks, thats what power can do to a person.
