RESIDENTS in Sungai Buloh came together to demand answers on the fate of SJK (T) RRI’s new building, Malaysia Nanban reported.

The school which has 400 students was promised a 2.5ha piece of land in 2012 and the land was officially gazetted in 2022.

But there has been little development for the building, the residents said during a meeting arranged by the RRI Sri Maha Mariamman Temple committee.

The RRI Tamil school recorded excellent achievements by its students in education and sports.

The location of the new building, which is about 1km away from the school’s current location, is to help improve its operations.

Those who attended the meeting urged the authorities to explain the status of the land and the new building.

The gazetted land is in a prime location with necessary infrastructure in the area, said attendees at the meeting, adding that the Tamil school must be built as promised.
