SHAH ALAM, Jan 13 (Bernama) — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak said many problems faced by the people in Selangor under the government led by the opposition coalition can be resolved if the Barisan Nasional (BN) takes over the state administration.
He said that after four years of administering the Selangor state since the 2008 general election, the opposition coalition had yet to fulfill the pledges made which had resulted in some of the people becoming frustrated.
Najib said this in his speech at the programme ‘Sepetang Bersama Perdana Menteri’ (An Evening With The Prime Minister) at the Rimba Jaya Flats, here in conjunction with his visit to the Selangor state under the ‘Love Selangor, Trust BN’ campaign Friday.
He said that among the problems faced by the people of Selangor now were water supply, garbage disposal and the proposed increase in rentals for traders at the Selangor State Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) complex which could be as much as 100 per cent.
At the gathering, Najib announced that the Federal Government would provide an allocation to build a surau needed by the flat dwellers.
I notice that the residents of the Rimba Jaya flats certainly need a new surau because I was taken to join the congregators for the Asar prayer this afternoon, the area is certainly unsuitable for us to retain as a surau for the flat residents,” he said.
Currently, the residents used the ground floor of the flats as their surau which could accommodate only between 50 and 60 congregators at any one time.
In addition, Najib said the Federal Government would provide the fund to build a new temple for the Indian community in the flat compound.
However, the Prime Minister did not disclose the quantum of allocation to be given for the two places of worship.
On the problem faced by some former squatters at Rimba Jaya who could not move back to the flats, he said he could not make any promise but said he needed time to study the problem and if there was a solution to it, the government would implement it.
Meanwhile, Najib also visited the traders at the PKNS Complex after performing the Friday prayer at the State Mosque.
