RESIDENTS are taking a property developer in Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur to task for speeding up its construction work even as the local authority is being sued in a bid to cancel the project.

“It appears that the developer has chosen to accelerate the project, so that by the time the case is heard in court, substantive ground work would have taken place and can no longer turn back or ‘undo’ what has been done without incurring significant economic losses,” the Protect Taman Desa coalition of residents said in a statement today.

  • The problem with local authority in Malaysia is ubiquitous to the amazement of the public. Whatever has been reserved for parks or green lung in its initial layout plan may suddenly disappear in a blink of the eye the next day. Its all about greed and corrupt leaders helming the authority in whatever positions swaying decisions that already been in place for personal gains. A never ending episodes in Malaysia administrations.
