THE Taman Tun Dr Ismail Residents’ Association (TTDI RA) has called upon the Kuala Lumpur mayor and Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan (WP) to not waste public funds by appealing the Court of Appeal’s landmark decision last month.
On Jan 27, the Appellate Court has unanimously decided to quash the development order granted by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) for condos in Taman Rimba Kiara.
“As KL residents we object to even more resources being used by DBKL and/or Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan to appeal a decision which is already so clear and definitive in its handling of the legal issues,” TTDI RA said in a statement today.
“DBKL is a government agency and as such, has a role to play to promote and safeguard the interest of the rakyat. And since this is a public interest initiatives championed by the citizens of Kuala Lumpur and supported by the general public, we urge DBKL to perform that role and not to spend valuable resources to challenge the will of the people,” the statement added.
Instead, the resident group echoed the call by Segambut MP Hannah Yeoh for the Federal Territories (FT) Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa, who is currently also chairman of Yayasan Wilayah Persekutuan, to focus on delivering affordable landed units for the 98 longhouse families within the existing 4-acre footprint of the longhouse area.
TTDI RA is also requesting a meeting with the FT Minister, at the soonest practicable time, to collectively engage on the aforesaid townhouse permanent housing plan as proposed previously by the association.
