Residents of Kampung Pandan to Receive a New Hall

SHAH ALAM, 13 Dec: The 30-year wait for residents of Kampung Pandan, Ampang for a new multi-purpose hall will end after the application for reconstructing the hall is approved by the State Executive Council.

Housing, Building Management and Squatters Exco member, Iskandar Abdul Samad said in a media statement that the reconstruction of the public hall in Jalan Pandan Medan will use the provisions of the Selangorku Grant.

He said that the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) is responsible for managing the construction of the 5,500 square feet hall at a cost of approximately RM500,000.

“The new hall will be equipped with two badminton courts and will take about eight months to be fully completed.

“According to the MPAJ report, they have already prepared the tender documents and drawings for the reconstruction of the hall and now they are just waiting for the directive from the Grant Committee to go ahead with their work,” he said.

He added that the construction of this multi-purpose hall is an urgent need as it is used by local residents for community outreach programmes.

Iskandar added that the Umno-BN government always claims that they are fighting for the fate of the Malay community however, have failed in providing good public facilities for the people of Kampung Pandan.

“Kampung Pandan is a Malay village which is behind in terms of public facilities compared to nearby parks, for a long time. Problems of giving land ownership in the village has been long overdue and has only been solved under the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) administration,” he added.
