New KL watchdog aims to provide input on issues facing capital


A NEW non-profit calling itself the Kuala Lumpur Residents Action for Sustainable Development Association (KLRA+SD) has been launched with the aim of acting as a watchdog for the local authorities and development issues in Kuala Lumpur.

It comprises residents' associations, other non-profits and higher learning institutions, whose aim is to provide a platform for city folk to voice their concerns on Kuala Lumpur’s development and infrastructure issues.

KLRA+SD chairman Tan Booi Charn (pic), in a statement on Saturday (March 9), said the association would work with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and local MPs on various issues.

Among these issues included the Kuala Lumpur local and structure plans, public transportation and facilities, as well as environmental concerns.

“It is the duty of all city folk to channel correct and constructive feedback so that DBKL and the MPs can make the right decisions for the city,” said Tan at the launch at the IWK@Eco Park in Pantai Dalam.

Also present were Wangsa Maju MP Zahir Hassan and representatives from the Cheras, Lembah Pantai and Setiawangsa parliamentary offices.

KLRA+SD, in a statement, said it also aimed to enhance public participation in advancing sustainable developments in Kuala Lumpur.
