“They (DBKL and the KL Mayor) are the ones who came up with the Kl Structure Plan 2020 to show that piece of land is a public park and now they themselves took away the public park and turned it into a condominium project- are they proud of that?”
“ So, the message here is that, even though the draft plan is not gazetted, the spent years and lots of money to come up with the plan, at least they could honour the plan.”
“And here today, it has been shown that the public opinion doesn’t matter at all. I’d also like to put an appeal to the developer, for the sake of a public park. Please don’t carry out any works as of now, until the substantive hearing disposed of” said by Hafiz Abu Bakar.
