Kampung Pindah Residents Told To Move To PPR Air Panas – Dato’ Raja Nong Chik
KUALA LUMPUR, April 15 (Bernama) — Thirty families occupying 10 houses in Kampung Pindah, here, who are affected by the ground cave-ins following heavy rain Thursday, have been told to move temporarily to the Air Panas people’s housing project (PPR) in Setapak.
Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said Kuala Lumpur City Hall would assist in the evacuation process.
“These PPR houses is almost complete,” he told reporters after visiting the families at Jalan Hamzah Community Hall in Kampung Baru, here Friday.
Raja Nong Chik also asked the Public Works Institute of Malaysia to carry out soil inspection and other tests at the affected areas.
He had also given the Drainage and Irrigation Department two weeks to restore its drainage system.
The Federal Territory Foundation, Umno and Barisan Nasional would provide assistance to the families, he added.
A resident, Abdul Ghani Mohd Nor, 47, said it was the second time that their area was affected by the cave-in after the first one on Feb 24.
“This one is the worst,” he said.
