We are working on a win-win formula, Nga tells Santiago

Housing and Local Government Minister Nga Kor Ming has given his assurance that his ministry is working on a win-win formula to resolve the unresolved housing issues of the Indian community in Bukit Tagar and Ladang Nigel Gardner.

“We are working on the win-win formula after the housing problem occurred since decades ago. Stay tuned,” he said via X to former Klang MP, Charles Santiago.

In a statement earlier today, Santiago said the decades old housing issues in Bukit Tagar and Ladang Nigel Gardner 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.

He also urged Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari to meet and listen to the grievances of those affected before effectively addressing the issues.

Both the plantation area are located in Kuala Kubu Baharu where a four cornered tussle is underway involving Pang Sock Tao of the DAP, Bersatu’s Khairul Azhari Saut, PRM’s Hafızah Zainuddin, and independent candidate Nyau Ke Xin.

The Kuala Kubu Baharu by-election was triggered by the passing of its three-term incumbent, Lee Kee Hiong.

The by-election is set to take place on May 11.
