Indians in KKB unaware of government initiatives

Indians in Kuala Kubu Baharu are in the dark of the state government initiatives to address issues beleaguering them, said former MP Charles Santiago.

This has led to a perception that the community is being discriminated by the state government even though they can obtain aid.

The former three term Klang MP of the DAP said that the community are still facing decades old housing issues in Bukit Tagar and Ladang Nigel Gardner which has not been resolved.

“People are not interested in ceramahs. They want an avenue to express their issues to the authorities, namely the state government. It’s, therefore, time to set up a complaints mechanism and work on tackling them.

“The people believe there is no political will. Solving the housing issue will go a long way to soften the anger (of the Indian community),” he said in a statement, FMT reported.

He also urged Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari to accept a meeting invitation from the aggrieved parties so that he can address their issues effectively.

“I hope he takes up their requests,” he said, pointing out that many among the community were “upset and looking at alternatives”.
