KLANG: PKR’s Kapar parliamentary seat candidate Datuk Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid is incensed by Wanita MIC chief Datuk Mohana Muniandy's statements regarding the lack of a hospital in the constituency.
“The land for the hospital has already been allocated but the federal government doesn’t want to pay the land premium,” said the former Kuala Langat MP.
“And yet they keep insisting that it is us who don’t want to let them build a hospital,” he added during a walkabout at the Taman Cempakasari night market.
Mohana who is also contesting for the Kapar parliamentary seat had earlier stated that the people of Kapar have been living in poor conditions for the last 10 years.
She added that if Barisan Nasional is given the mandate in GE14, there would be a hospital in the area.
Sementa state seat incumbent Dr Daroyah Alwi who was also at the walkabout explained that before the opposition took over Selangor in 2008, there already was land allocated for a military camp in Bukit Raja, which was then moved to Sarawak.
“After the military camp was moved to Sarawak, it was then decided that the land was to be used to build a hospital for the people of Kapar. But instead of building a hospital like planned, that land was sold to a Japanese company,” said Daroyah.
