Subject: INVITATION TO PRESS CONFERENCE CUM SITE VISIT
Date: Thu, 12 Feb 2015 13:12:31 +0800
Dear members of the media, councilors, elected representatives, and respected rate payers,
INVITATION TO PRESS CONFERENCE CUM SITE VISIT
An initiative for sustainable development of Petaling Jaya will take a look at the way development takes place on the ground by visiting some construction sites in the city. In conjunction with the site visits, a press conference will be held.
Community leaders, councilors, elected representatives, and MBPJ officers have been invited for this initiative.
This event is organized as a result of the total silence on the part of the authorities, councilors and elected representatives to my earlier email (appended below) which was also copied to you. I quote a comment made by MBPJ’s director of engineering, En Ismail Shafie, last week on the non compliance of a stop-work order against Mangkubumi Sdn Bhd :
“They did not inform us about this work and there was no advanced warning about the traffic diversion either,”
It would be most appreciated it your newspaper could be present to cover the initiative to improve the good governance of the city’s administration.
DATE: 13th February 2015 (Friday)
VENUE : In front of Kompleks Kemajuan, Jalan 19/1, Petaling Jaya.
Thank you and have a good day.

A picture paints a thousand words and pains a million hearts.
These are genuine photos, cropped a bit otherwise not doctored in anyway, not photo-shopped.
Works carry on way past midnight on a regular basis.
Works going on on Sunday 18/1/2015, including cutting off access across that portion of Jalan 19/1 (about 6pm) for some works with a crane (the first photo).
MBPJ - DO YOU PEOPLE EVER BOTHER ABOUT WORK SITE MANAGEMENT?
ISN'T THERE A NEED TO HAVE CONSTRUCTION HOARDINGS AROUND THIS WORK SITE?
WHY ARE PUBLIC ROADS CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC FOR PRIVATE CONVENIENCE?
WHY THE MESS ALLOWED TO EXIST? WHAT'S THE CONDITION OF SUNGAI PENCALA JUST BEHIND THIS WORK SITE?
HELLO, PJ RATE PAYERS WANT AN IMMEDIATE STOP WORK ORDER FOR THIS FELLA UNTIL AND UNLESS WE ARE GUARANTEED THAT WORKS WILL NOT BE A PUBLIC NUISANCE, THAT MEANS INCLUDING NOT WORKING FROM PUBLIC DOMAIN AND IMPECCABLE CLEANLINESS IN THE VICINITY TOO.
YB Councilors and ADUNs, can we please have a meeting with MBPJ before the end of this month to clarify the who-when-where-what-why-which-how of work site management and enforcement of regulations?
