Authorities must adopt pro-rakyat thinking from now on

THE apex court’s judgment on Taman Rimba Kiara is a great achievement for the rakyat as it sends a clear signal that the judiciary stood firm with the rakyat to save the environment and ecological aspects of the park for present and future generations.

We, the rakyat, are hopeful that Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL)’s new mayor Datuk Kamarulzaman Mat Salleh will drive home the message to his team for fresh pro-rakyat thinking.

In addition, we trust the Federal Territories Land and Mines Office (PPTGWP) will get the same message.

There is no need to continue with the “business as usual” attitude.

We at Selamatkan Kuala Lumpur (SKL) look to the Law and Institutional Reform Minister to initiate a “class action” provision.

It is celebration time for the Save Taman Rimba Kiara Group, TTDI RA and many others who have been waiting for this judgment. Congratulations to them.

As a matter of fact, those who had been irresponsible in pursuing the legal action against the rakyat and wasting taxpayers’ money must be made accountable for the losses.

We at SKL have been advocating for the election of the mayor and councillors for DBKL as well as all other local councils to make them accountable and responsible towards the rakyat.

Reinstate local government elections at national level.
