Ops Tikus in SS14


Sinar Harian - Perangkap tikus berjaya

tikus

SUBANG JAYA - Tikus dengan seberat hampir satu kilogram setiap seekor antara haiwan pembawa penyakit yang berjaya dikumpul penduduk sempena gotong-royong anjuran Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) di kawasan komersil SS15, di sini.

Inisiatif pembersihan bangkai tikus dilakukan selama dua jam selepas MPSJ memasang perangkap melalui kaedah intensif dua hari sebelum itu.

Pengarah Kesihatan MPSJ, Dr Roslan Mohamed Hussin berkata, banyak lagi bangkai tikus dijangka ditemui di kawasan komersil itu dalam tempoh seminggu akan datang.

“MPSJ sudah meletakkan kira-kira 45,000 keping roti beracun di beberapa tempat strategik di sekitar kawasan bagi memerangkap haiwan pembawa penyakit itu.

“Sebanyak RM2,000 diperuntukan untuk melaksanakan inisiatif pembersihan tikus ini yang dikesan berkeliaran di kawasan SS15, dalam tempoh dua hari sebelum ini kita berjaya mengumpul 265 bangkai tikus,” katanya.

Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Subang Jaya, Hannah Yeoh Tseow Suan yang turut serta mengutip bangkai tikus dalam program itu berkata, beliau menerima banyak aduan berhubung isu pembiakan tikus daripada penduduk terutama dari SS15 yang merupakan salah satu kawasan tertua di Subang Jaya.

Jelasnya, pelupusan sisa makanan yang tidak sempurna dikesan antara punca utama pembiakan tikus berlaku di kawasan itu.

“Pembuangan secara haram sisa binaan dan perabot lama juga telah memburukkan lagi keadaan di lorong belakang kedai yang menjadi tempat persembunyian haiwan ini,” katanya.

Beliau berkata, MPSJ perlu serius mempertimbangkan untuk menjalankan kutipan sampah dua kali sehari, pada waktu pagi dan malam untuk mengurangkan sumber makanan kepada tikus.

“Sudah tiba masanya MPSJ mengkaji semula garis panduan kawalan perosak, ini juga masa yang tepat bagi penduduk memilih premis makanan mana yang bersih, berikan mesej bahawa anda tidak bertolak ansur dengan restoran kotor,” katanya.

Beliau mengakui, banyak kawasan menghadapi gangguan tikus termasuk SS15, Taipan, PJS11, SS13 dan SS19.

SELANGOR AKAN AMBIL ALIH PERKHIDMATAN AIR DALAM TEMPOH 14 HARI


KENYATAAN AKHBAR
30 JANUARI 2013
SELANGOR AKAN AMBIL ALIH PERKHIDMATAN AIR DALAM TEMPOH 14 HARI
 
Kerajaan Selangor telah menulis surat kepada Menteri Tenaga, Teknologi Hijau dan Air, Dato’ Seri Peter Chin Kah Fui untuk memaklumkan bahawa kita akan mengambil alih perkhidmatan air daripada syarikat konsesi dalam tempoh 14 hari.
 
Kita berpegang kepada kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri selaku Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kabinet Mengenai Air, YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin di Sabak Bernam baru-baru ini yang menyatakan kerajaan Pusat tiada halangan untuk kerajaan Selangor mengambilalih perkhidmatan air.
 
Justeru,  dalam surat tersebut kita telah memaklumkan bahawa pengambilalihan perkhidmatan industri air akan diteruskan dalam tempoh 14 hari sekiranya pihak kementerian tidak memberi sebarang maklum balas.
 
Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, kita mendapat aduan rakyat bahawa SYABAS telah  mengedarkan risalah yang mengkritik kerajaan Selangor dalam isu air. Hasil dari siasatan awal yang kita lakukan didapati kenyataan SYABAS tersebut telah dikeluarkan oleh Pengarah Eksekutif Pembangunan Teknikal SYABAS, Ir V Subramaniam.
 
Dengan ini SYABAS mengeluarkan risalah ini tanpa mendapat persetujuan dan pengetahuan Ahli Lembaga Pengarah SYABAS. Sehubungan itu, sebagai pemegang saham dalam SYABAS, kerajaan Selangor mendesak supaya diadakan siasatan dalaman terhadap Subramaniam kerana bertindak melebihi kuasa yang dibenarkan.
 
Kerajaan Negeri Selangor juga telah dimaklumkan bahawa mutaakhir ini berlaku kekerapan kejadian paip bocor yang memberi kesan terhadap pembekalan air kepada rakyat. Kerajaan Negeri Selangor akan memantau perkara ini dengan serius demi menjaga kepentingan rakyat dan memastikan lebih 5 juta pengguna di Selangor, Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya tidak terjejas  dengan  gangguan bekalan air akibat kegagalan SYABAS menyelenggara paip dengan baik dan berkala.

We did it - Selangor cares!

Thank you banner by SJ Buddhist Association, Kuil Sri Varatharajah Perumal and SJ Sikh Association

My speech at the opening ceremony of the pedestrian bridge built by JKR Selangor connecting SS13 and SS14 at Persiaran Kewajipan:

Today we are here to witness the official opening of a pedestrian bridge. But this is not just another pedestrian bridge. To the people of Subang Jaya and the devotees of the Subang Jaya Buddhist Association, Sri Varatharajah Perumal Hindu Temple and the upcoming Persatuan Sikh Subang, this is a dream come true. You need to know why.

Back in February 2008, during the campaign period for the last General Elections, a press announcement was made by the former state assemblyman, BN’s Dato’ Lee Hwa Beng who was then a candidate for the Kelana Jaya parliamentary seat, together with Mdm Ong Chong Swen, the then BN candidate for the Subang Jaya state seat. They announced to the public that this pedestrian bridge would be built by Ahmad Zaki Resources Bhd, the contractor of the Subang-Kelana Link project, this 10-lane elevated highway project by the federal government costing RM315 million that connects Persiaran Kewajipan with Jalan Lapangan Terbang Subang.

After the General Elections in 2008, when both Dato’ Lee Hwa Beng and Mdm Ong Chong Swen lost, I as the newly elected state assemblyman for Subang Jaya began to follow-up with the Works Ministry and the Public Works Department on the status of this bridge. We were then notified that this pedestrian bridge will not be built. The only explanation I received was from Dato’ Lee Hwa Beng who informed me then that this pedestrian bridge was a personal promise by Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu (the former Works Minister) and because Samy Vellu lost and Dato’ Lee also lost in the General Elections, the bridge will not be built. 

I then turned to our own Selangor state government for assistance even though this project is not within the jurisdiction of the state government. After 4 years of waiting on the promise made by BN and more than 1600 signatures collected in a petition, in May 2012, Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim used state allocation to finance the building of this pedestrian bridge and came here during Wesak Day last year to officiate at the ground-breaking ceremony. With an open tender, this bridge costs the state government RM1.35 million. Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim saw the importance of this pedestrian bridge for the safety of the residents and devotees and therefore set aside money from the limited state budget to finance the construction of this bridge. 

This bridge will serve as a tangible reminder to Subang Jaya residents that BN’s slogan of “Janji Ditepati” is hogwash. A simple project, a pedestrian bridge, yet it was not fulfilled. BN made this promise, but Pakatan Rakyat fulfilled it and made it a reality. We didn’t have to build it as this is a federal project and it wasn’t a promise which we made. But we did it anyway because it is our duty as a responsible state government. Duty above promises, above slogans. We do not have fancy slogans such as “People First, Performance Now”, but you judge for yourself, who is really placing the people first, and performing now for you?

We are approaching the next General Elections soon. The same BN politicians will go around town promising many things, bridges, roads, money, peace, progress, stability, everything and more under the sun. Just remember that if you can’t even fulfill a simple thing as a pedestrian bridge, how can we trust the nation to you? I believe that the people of Subang Jaya will judge us on our actions. Thank you Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim for managing this state so well that Selangor is able to step in when the federal government fails in its basic duty to care for the well-being of the people. On behalf of all devotees here, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, and people of all faiths in Subang Jaya, I thank you for doing the right thing even when you didn’t have to. The people can now cross this busy highway safely. It is saving lives every day. Thank you.

Syabas explanation does not hold water




SUBANG JAYA: Unanswered calls to the Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) call centre, Puspel, and subsequent nonsensical explanations over water disruptions have left residents fuming. 

“Syabas says the water level in the reservoir is low due to no rain for two days... It’s not even drought season and it has been raining here frequently, so how can there be no water?” said Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh.

She said during a press conference on Thursday that some residents even experienced 30 hours of no water over the past weekend, adding that she was told that Syabas had sent water tankers to the affected areas.

“How can they know where to send the water tankers if Puspel is not answering calls and taking down the complaints? Angry residents have been calling me since last weekend,” she said.

Yeoh urged Puspel to man their call centres properly and fix it if the system is down or broken. 
“I hope Puspel will note down where they (residents) live and inform them at what time the water tankers are going to be in their area. 

“If not, Syabas wouldn’t even know where the affected areas are and the residents won’t even know at what time the water tankers are coming,” she said.

This is not the first time this is happening in the area, the most recent was during Hari Raya last year when residents in SS14 had to celebrate without water supply.

Last weekend, some residents could not celebrate the Ponggol festival due to water cuts in SS12 and SS19.

Water disruption in SS12 - SS19


MEDIA STATEMENT BY HANNAH YEOH
STATE ASSEMBLYMAN FOR SUBANG JAYA

Residents in Subang Jaya have experienced water disruption beginning 12 January 2013 and this was the reason provided by Syabas:

“… disebabkan oleh penurunan paras kolam-kolam utama termasuk Kolam Bukit Dengkil dan Kolam Subang Airport yang membekalkan  air ke SS12 – SS19”.

In addition to the above, Syabas also commented that the low water level was due to the fact that it had not rained for 2 days. I find this reason simply absurd and not acceptable.

Residents have also complained that Syabas’ customer service PUSPEL was not contactable during this period of disruption. Many calls went unanswered and residents were not able to receive any information on the water disruption and restoration plan. Residents were left guessing (some for 30 hours continuously).

I have also requested for Syabas to send water tankers to the affected neighbourhoods. However, this was done on an ad-hoc basis and unless and until the complaint channel by PUSPEL is running effectively, Syabas has no mechanism to dispatch water tankers to ALL affected residents.

Previously, residents in SS14 were not able to celebrate Hari Raya due to the same water disruption and this time around, the Ponggal celebration was affected for some residents from SS12 – SS19. Chinese New Year is fast approaching and Syabas must prevent this from happening a third time.

Police reports lodged against Mukuntala Devi A/P Sivagamae


MEDIA STATEMENT BY HANNAH YEOH 
STATE ASSEMBLYMAN FOR SUBANG JAYA

On 2 January 2013, my office discovered a case of fraud committed by a former staff in my office, Ms. Mukuntala Devi A/P Sivagamae who was terminated on 31 December 2012 due to poor performance. The fraud involves the forging of signature of a beneficiary of the “Senior Citizens Scheme”. Following an internal investigation and admission, I lodged a police report on 3 January 2013 against Ms. Devi. 

A comprehensive internal audit of Ms. Devi’s work in relation to the scheme led to the discovery of more cases of similar type of fraud. We called for and met up with the people affected and expressed our deepest regret that the incident has caused them disappointment and inconvenience. Upon verification that these 22 beneficiaries have not received the payment due to them, I immediately lodged a second police report against Ms. Devi on 10 January 2013. In the course of the audit, we have also discovered that some 95 forms relating to the scheme are missing from the office. This was followed by a third police report against Ms. Devi on 12 January 2013.

I view this incident very seriously and this has resulted in Ms. Devi being investigated by the police. I have submitted all relevant evidence to the police to assist them in their investigation. I stand committed in my pursuit of a clean and transparent office and will not tolerate any wrongdoing, especially if it is committed by any one of my staff.

SJ Beacon


Article from Selangor Times - Community ambulance soon in Subang
Writer: Brenda Ch'ng
Published: Fri, 04 Jan 2013

SUBANG JAYA: Malaysia’s first community ambulance which will supplement the services provided by hospitals and other non-governmental organisations is being set up here by the Subang Jaya Bomba Emergency Assistance Community or SJ Beacon.

Yeoh (right) handing over the mock cheque to Khairi.
The registered association which was established by residents from Subang, Sunway and USJ last November has so far raised RM40,000 but needs between RM250,000 to RM300,000 to purchase a fully-equipped ambulance.

The group hopes to start providing services to the community in March.

“We need this urgently because there have been numerous incidents in the past where ambulances fail to show up in times of emergency... often taking longer than 30 minutes,” said SJ Beacon vice-president Dr KM Loi.

Dr Loi, who is also a Subang Jaya municipal councillor, pointed out that there are only two public hospitals near Subang, which are the Serdang Hospital and University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC).

But there are not even enough ambulances at the Serdang Hospital to service the Seri Kembangan area, let alone Subang Jaya, Sunway and USJ.

Ambulances from UMMC take too long to come and even when they do respond on time, often face difficulties locating the place.

“There are no hospitals in Shah Alam area as well... so we decided to follow St John Ambulance and have our own community ambulance and partner with them,” he said.

Together with the help of St John, the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department and members of SJ Beacon, this ambulance will be the first community operated one in the country.

Under the plan, a member of Subang’s Fire and Rescue Department would drive the ambulance while volunteers from St John Ambulance will provide medical assistance to those inside.

The services will be provided free of charge in cases of emergencies.

However, residents who need the ambulance to meet their medical appointments, or simply need transport back from the hospital will be charged a nominal fee.

“This fee will be used to maintain the ambulance and to keep the services in operation,” he said.

SJ Beacon is also always on the look-out for competent and passionate volunteers to join them when their ambulance is up and running.

Housed at the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department, those involved will be expected to follow the firemen to fires and to transport victims to hospital.

Apart from medical emergency services, SJ Beacon also has another arm called the Bomba Community, made up of about 35-40 residents to spread awareness on preventing and fighting fires.

An informal group, comprising of four or five residents, which organised community events with the Fire and Rescue Department has evolved into the group which meets and trains regularly.

“We want to reach out to the community and break the ice between them and the fire department as usually it is the only place of authority which people never step into,” said Bomba Community head TH Teoh.

He explained that the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department is the first to have a community bomba unit and this initiative is currently being followed by other fire departments statewide.

Members of the Bomba Community are trained for two hours every Sunday to learn how to use hoses, attach it to fire hydrants and learn to put out fires as well.

This knowledge will then be shared and passed down to other residents in Subang through event and fire fighting programmes organised by the Bomba Community.

The most recent event organised at the Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department’s premises was the New Year’s Eve countdown on Monday where hundreds of residents were given a chance to step into the building.

Children were even allowed to run around the place and at the same time be educated on the duties of a fire brigade.

“I hope more of such events will be organised throughout the year as in this urban neighbourhood, it’s not easy for children to run around at a place of authority and to see what a fire department is like on the inside,” said Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh.

She was present at the countdown event and pledged RM10,000 for the community ambulance service.

Yeoh also hoped that the Fire and Rescue Department will also set up a station in USJ.

Also present was Subang Jaya Fire and Rescue Department chief Deputy Supt Mohd Khairi Daud who is committed to assisting SJ Beacon in setting up the community ambulance.

“Our team is very dedicated to serve the community and get involved with the work and projects organised by SJ Beacon,” he said.

GANGGUAN BEKALAN AIR TIADA KAITAN LANGAT 2


KENYATAAN AKHBAR
7 JANUARI 2013
GANGGUAN BEKALAN AIR TIADA KAITAN LANGAT 2

Hari ini saya bersama Setiausaha Kerajaan Negeri, Dato’ Mohamad Khusrin Munawi dan pegawai Unit Perancang Ekonomi Negeri Selangor telah melawat Rumah Pam di Wangsa Maju bagi meninjau kerja-kerja membaiki pam yang menjadi punca gangguan bekalan air kepada pengguna di Selangor dan Kuala Lumpur.

Turut bersama saya, Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Kumpulan Perangsang Selangor Berhad, Suhaimi Kamarulzaman dan Pengarah Konsortium Abbas Sdn Bhd, Abas Abdullah. Mereka ini adalah antara orang yang akan bertanggungjawab menguruskan operasi air apabila kerajaan Selangor mengambil alih perkhidmatan air daripada syarikat konsesi.

Saya telah mendengar taklimat daripada wakil Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (SYABAS) yang menerangkan bagaimana sistem pam itu berjalan dan saya mengingatkan SYABAS menyelesaikan masalah ini dengan segera supaya operasi air kembali seperti biasa.

Saya juga mengingatkan SYABAS tentang pentingnya sistem pemantauan dan perlu lebih pro-aktif untuk memastikan kelima-lima pam ini berjalan dengan baik serta lancar.

Berdasarkan laporan Jawatan Kuasa Pemantauan Bekalan Air Negeri Selangor yang telah mengadakan lawatan ke rumah pam ini pada 2 Januari lalu, kita mendapati 4 daripada 5 pam telah rosak manakala satu pam sedang diselenggara dan tidak beroperasi  pada masa lawatan itu.

Jawatankuasa ini mendapati pam nombor dua telah rosak sejak setahun lalu dan tidak diperbaiki kerana tiada alat ganti manakala pam nombor 4 dan 5 rosak pada malam 28 Disember 2012 ketika beroperasi secara serentak.

Dakwaan SYABAS bahawa kesemua pam beroperasi melebihi had menyumbang kepada kerosakan pam adalah tidak benar. Sepanjang tahun 2012, hanya 18 hari sahaja pam-pam ini beroperasi melebihi 200 juta liter sehari. Kadar aliran purata pam-pam tersebut adalah 182.204 juta liter sehari.

Kita tidak boleh menerima alasan SYABAS kerana syarikat ini sepatutnya memastikan kelima-lima pam ini berada dalam keadaan baik dan penyelenggaraan secara berkala menjadi prosedur wajib yang ditetapkan dalam Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).

SYABAS sepatutnya membaiki dan menyelenggara pam-pam ini sejak awal-awal lagi dan bukannya membaikinya apabila berlaku gangguan bekalan air.

Kerajaan Selangor kesal apabila SYABAS mengaitkan gangguan bekalan air ini dengan pembinaan Loji Langat 2 sedangkan ia tiada kaitan langsung.  Kita mempunyai bekalan air yang mencukupi tetapi oleh kerana kegagalan SYABAS memastikan pam-pam ini dalam keadaan baik, pengguna di Selangor dan Kuala Lumpur telah terjejas.

SYABAS juga gagal menurunkan kadar peratusan Air Tidak Berhasil (NRW) di bawah paras 30% seperti yang ditetapkan dalam Perjanjian Konsesi. Jika loji baharu dibina,  kekurangan bekalan air bersih kepada pengguna di Selangor, Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya masih tidak selesai kerana kelemahan SYABAS.

Justeru, kita mendesak Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin  memandang serius masalah yang ditanggung rakyat dan mempercepatkan proses penstrukturan semula dengan membenarkan Kerajaan Selangor mengambil alih perkhidmatan pembekalan air seperti yang dihasratkan dalam Akta Perkhidmatan Industri Air 2006 atau WSIA.

Saya juga mengucapkan terima kasih kepada semua pihak berkuasa tempatan di Selangor  kerana  menghantar lori tangki air untuk membantu pengguna di Kuala Lumpur yang terjejas teruk akibat gangguan ini.

Kerajaan Selangor  perlu menjaga kepentingan kepada pengguna di Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya kerana jika Selangor mengambil alih perkhidmatan air daripada syarikat konsesi, Kerajaan Selangor bertanggungjawab membekalkan air secukupnya kepada rakyat di Kuala Lumpur dan Putrajaya dengan kadar tarif sama dengan pengguna di Selangor.

Temporary closure of KTM Subang Jaya station?


At the press conference with reps from Persatuan Teksi Subang Jaya

Article in Selangor Times - A rail woe for Subang residents

Published: Fri, 04 Jan 2013
SUABNG JAYA:  Thousands, including commuters and local business owners, will be left in the lurch if a plan to close the KTM Subang Jaya train station this month goes through.

The KTM Subang Jaya train station which will be closed this month.  
“This station sees about 10,000 users each day. Not only that, the shops and malls here will face negative economic effects,” said KTM Subang Jaya Taxi Drivers’ Society chairperson Che Ei Mohamad.

He  fears that his fellow-taxi drivers who ply the Sunway and Subang routes will also face a drop in income.
They estimate a drastic plunge of over 50% in their fare collection as they stand to lose passengers who use the station.

“We have passengers from Hulu Selangor coming here and heading to the Subang airport. They also travel here from Kampung Subang to go to Sunway Pyramid,” he said.

Che Ei expressed his concern during a press conference at the office of Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh on Wednesday.

The society had initially met with Yeoh and a KTM representative on Dec 5 to call for better infrastructure like waiting lanes and rain shelter at the station.

“KTM said they won’t be able to comply with the taxi drivers’ demands as they are closing the station in January,” Yeoh said.

She was told that  as the station will be integrated with lines coming from the Light Rail Transit (LRT) extension project, it will be closed for construction.

She is unsure when the closure will take effect, how long it will be closed  and why the public are not informed.

“So far I’ve only been told of the closure over the phone. I have yet to receive any formal notice.”
Yeoh urged railway operator KTM Bhd to announce their plans and give the public enough time to adjust.

She said aside from her constituents, commuters from USJ16, Putra Heights and Kinrara, Puchong, would also be affected.

“We also want to know if KTMB has alternate plans to help the public  get to the next closest station from here,” she added.

The train stations next to the Subang Jaya KTM station, which is on the Sentul-Port Klang route, are the Setia Jaya and Batu Tiga stations.

The Setia Jaya station is about 2.5km away, next to PJS8, while the Batu Tiga station is about 3km away, next to Taman Batu Tiga.

When contacted, a KTMB corporate communication officer said it was the first time she had heard of the station closure.

“I will need to check with the officer in charge first,” she said.

However, Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd group managing director Datuk Shahril Mokhtar on Thursday  said the Subang KTM station will be closed within the next two months for  one year to facilitate the LRT extension project.

Prasarana plans to provide feeder bus services at the Batu Tiga and Setia Jaya KTM stations to ferry passengers to KTM Subang Jaya.

Prove payment or stop BN ads, S'gor DAP tells KTM




Selangor DAP has called on Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) to prove that Selangor BN's Komuter advertising campaign has been paid for, otherwise they should stop running the campaign.

“Selangor DAP urges KTMB to disclose the total payment made by Selangor BN to KTMB for the ‘Sayangi BN’ advertisement and other relevant details, such as duration of advertisement, total unit of trains involved, any discount given for the advertisement and etc.

NONE“KTMB is government-owned and should not be abused by the ruling political parties to advance their political agenda. 

“If these advertisements are not paid, we demand that KTMB stop playing the advertisement immediately,” said Selangor DAP treasurer Hannah Yeoh (right) in a statement today.

It was reported yesterday that the Klang Valley Komuter trains have been playing theSelangor BN videos since last month.

KTMB chairperson Mohamad Zin Mohamad, who is also Selangor BN secretary, had claimed that it is a paid advertisement.

NONE
Last April, KTMB also allowed BN flags to be put up at its stations in Selangor, a state the BN has repeatedly announced that it is bent on winning back from the opposition in the next general election.

Yeoh, who is also Subang Jaya assemblyperson, also asked if KTMB had charged Selangor BN market rates.

“Selangor DAP will be writing in to KTMB to request for a quotation to display similar political advertisement materials, and we hope that KTMB will be impartial and apply the same standard/service it has accorded to Selangor BN,” she said.
