KUALA LUMPUR: Medan Damansara residents want the Damansara 21 project located in their neighbourhood scrapped.
Medan Damansara Residents Association committee member Randhir Singh said the residents had enough of listening to politicians’ constant reassurance during their visits.
“We do not want to wait until another tragedy occurs before someone steps up to stop the project completely.
“The residents here are mentally, financially and physically suffering from it,” said Randhir.
The project by Selangor Dredging Bhd (SDB) Properties that started early December last year comprises 21 bungalows costing between RM10mil and RM15mil each.
Randhir added that construction work at the site is still ongoing as some workers were spotted working, although the directive to stop hillside project had been announced.
“No one told the workers anything about it and some days they are seen working till 7pm,” he said.
This Saturday, Medan Damansara residents would gather to share their views on the project, with hopes that someone would listen to their pleas and bring the project to an end.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng visited the neighbourhood and hung banners reminding Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to stop all hillside developments in the wake of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide tragedy.
