Road show on controversial draft KL plan June 3, 2008Posted by Parti KeADILan Rakyat Bahagian Batu in Aktiviti Ahli Parlimen, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, Pakatan Rakyat, Parlimen Batu, Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Sidang Dewan Rakyat.
The 10 Pakatan Rakyat parliamentarians in Kuala Lumpur will hold a road show from June 15 to get public feedback on the controversial draft local plan of the capital city. The draft plan, released on May 15, lists such goals as turning KL into a world-class city, achieving sustainable land use and protecting the environment.
However, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has already come in for flak from interest groups over a litany of ‘unfavourable’ proposals. There are also issues which are filled with ‘technical jargons’ as well as complicated graphs and charts in the two-volume publication. The Pakatan road show will attempt to reveal the impact of the proposals to the public. Several of the parliamentarians and the deputy federal territories minister have their say here.
