I have just been informed by several community leaders in Subang Jaya that MCA Kelana Jaya Division led by Mdm Ong Chong Swen is organising a consultation session with resident reps in her office on information pertaining to the LRT route provided by the Ministry of Transport. Since last year, we have been calling on the LRT concessionaire (Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd) and the Ministry of Transport to provide MPSJ with the proposed LRT route. To date, my office and MPSJ has yet to receive any news from them. This is despite official letters and even a public briefing for the residents which was organized by residents with my office. We have been kept waiting for months to hear of anything from Prasarana and the Ministry of Transport.
A proper consultation session should be organised by the Ministry of Transport or the LRT concessionaire involving MPSJ, the Member of Parliament, State Assemblymen, MPSJ councillors and all affected residents. The LRT project is not funded by Barisan Nasional or MCA, it is funded by the federal government using taxpayers' money. What is the role of MCA Kelana Jaya in this consultation session? So many questions remain unanswered. The Minister of Transport has to be more forthcoming. Inviting selected resident reps to attend a consultation session on the LRT route in a MCA service centre is highly inappropriate. The people of Subang Jaya is being denied key information for the sake of political mileage with MCA tagging onto the LRT project and trying to use this to score political points. I reiterate the case here again: the people's elected reps should not be denied information and access to the due process for a government project that has implications affecting everyone. The LRT is not a "Projek Barisan Nasional" or a "Projek MCA".
