16 November 2008


This morning, the Residents of Taman Permata flat organized a gotong-royong to clean up their neighbourhood. This was a joint initiative by the Taman Permata Flat Residents Welfare Committee headed by Mr. Veanu a/l Ramuthi and Berapit State Assemblywomen, YB Puan Ong Kok Fooi.

The gotong-royong started at 8am and was scheduled to end by noon, but the diligent residents continued to work until late evening. The residents of Taman Permata have been complaining of their unhygienic living conditions for a long time with several empty flat units filled with rubbish and their drains clogged. Yet their complaints fell on deaf ear of the previous BN Government. Since the Pakatan Rakyat State Government took charge, YB Puan Ong has been visiting the neighborhood a few times to have meetings and dialogues with the residents. Today’s gotong-royong is one of the result of the meetings. YB Puan Ong has also approved an RM13000.00 allocation to repair leaking water tanks and main pipes in several of the flats.
