Bandar Puteri: Another Bandar Botanic

The new housing estate, Bandar Puteri Klang, was sealed off by flood from the Taman Sentosa entrance on Sunday morning, April 9, when I drove there to meet the house owners over their woes on the defective houses built by Malayanpine Sdn Bhd, a company related to the conglomerate, IOI Bhd. Their plight had been highlighted previously on January 15 when I first visited the place.

It was a coincidence that it rained cats and dogs on Sunday morning, since as early as 2.00 a.m., and the water flowed into the houses since 2.30 a.m. The water had not subsided when I passed by Taman Sentosa and I had to turn back to Kesas Highway to make a u-turn at the Klang-Banting junction in order to enter Bandar Puteri from the highway since the developer had yet to build the ramp and flyover from the Kota Kemuning direction as promised long ago.

I wrote to IOI in January and requested their prompt action to resolve the problems arised, however, despite intervention from Klang Municipal Council (MPK), they seems to be lackadaisical.

A 14-member action committee formed on Sunday led by Sdr Hariharan will compile all the complaints on house defects and public amenities and will fix an appointment with the President of MPK to hand over a memorandum.

A website on Bandar Puteri is also being constructed emulating the website put up by the house owners in Bandar Botanic, Klang as part of their struggle to fight for their rights as consumers and taxpayers.

MPK?? They are only interested in mony coming in - like car parking - As for problems, they push aside and pretend not to know.
