THE state government is looking at ways to ensure only Malaysians can rent units in the state’s PPR (People’s Housing Project) flats.
Selangor Mentri Besar Azmin Ali acknowledged a large number of foreigners were currently occupying the low-cost flats meant for citizens.
“There are some people renting out their units to foreigners.
“We need to ensure that only owners occupy the flats,” he said, adding the state government was looking at ways to overcome the problem.
Azmin also urged residents to pay their maintenance fees to ensure the facilities and infrastructure are maintained.
“The fee is only RM15 and will help ensure the lifts are in working order and rubbish is collected regularly.
“Although the buildings were built by the Federal Government, the state government has allocated RM5mil to upgrade the PPR in Selangor,’’ he said during an anti-dengue campaign in SS15 Subang Jaya.
Azmin visited three local councils under the Petaling District — Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya and Shah Alam.
More than 150 officers from the Hulu Selangor District Council, Sepang Municipal Council and the Selayang Municipal Council joined Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) personnel during the operation.
Officers from each council headed 16 teams which also included residents.
The teams checked houses and other areas for dengue breeding grounds and found seven spots.
Three notices, two for shoplots and another for a house, were issued.
Also present at the event were Kelana Jaya MP Wong Chen, Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh, MPSJ president Datuk Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan and Selangor Health, Entrepreneur Development, Science and Technology and Innovation Committee chairman Dr Daroyah Alwi.
