THE living conditions at Seri Pulai Apartment in Balakong have gone from bad to worse during the movement control order (MCO).
The livelihood of residents have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and as a result, some have stopped paying their maintenance fees.
Seri Pulai Apartment Joint Management Body (JMB) chairman Dr K Shankar Ganesh said although conditions had been deteriorating since residents took over from the developer in 2010, it has worsened further this year.
“Many unit owners are not paying maintenance fees. Some residents are also disposing of waste improperly and our sewage pipes are now blocked, ” he said.
Resident Mohamad Kamal Mohamed Din said the place was an eyesore with abandoned cars, overflowing rubbish, faulty lights, clogged drainage and poor landscaping.
“The attitude of residents who leave rubbish everywhere is disappointing, ” he said during a press conference organised by Bangi MCA Public Complaints Bureau head Tan Chee Teong.
Kamal said the kindergarten was also broken into recently and a group of residents had to pool money among themselves to fix the door as well as replace stolen wiring and broken lights in the common area.
Kamal said most corridors were unlit even at night as the copper wiring was stolen and residents had to replace them.
“We are worried about the long-term consequences if these issues are not addressed properly, ” he said.
