Bestari Jaya TKM participants can continue project

SHAH ALAM, 25 Apr: The use of the Bestari Jaya Permanent Food Production Park (TPKM), which expires in June, will be withdrawn until a date to be announced later.

The Exco for Agro-Based Industries, Zaidy Abdul Talib, said that participants can continue agricultural activities in the area as usual.

“I, together with the Selangor Agricultural Officer, Veterinary Officer and the Fisheries Officer are trying our best to help everyone,” said Zaidy when visiting the area in a press statement.

He said that the Selangor government invested RM5.4 million for the development of TKPM, which is 141.9 hectares and 21 participants, until 2013.

The total profit from TKPM until 2013 is RM38 million. However, the area is under the project site for the construction of the Hybrid Off-River Augmentation System 3000 water catchment (HORAS).

The Selangor government informed the participants that the use of TKPM ends in June 2015 for the construction of the HORAS 3000 project on the TKPM site.

Zaidy said that the Selangor government recognises that Selangor’s water requirements are increasing.

He said that the demand for treated water at this moment is 5,000 million litres per day (MLD).

The construction of HORAS 3000 is to increase the production of treated water up to 80 percent from the current treated water demand in Selangor.

The Selangor government’s target for 2017 is to complete Langat 2 and in 2020, Selangor needs to have additional water resources.

“The state government needs to think about mechanisms to meet the increased demand for treated water in the future,” he said.

Meanwhile, a participant of the Bestari Jaya TKPM, Muhd Fadzil Ibrahim 62, said that participants require assistance for living if they are taken out to TKPM and asked Zaidy for consideration to manage the TKPM issue.

Fadzil thanked Zaidy for his concern regarding the Bestari Jaya TKPM issue.

Chicken rearer, Mohd Noor Yahya, 68, asked to not abandon the Bestari Jaya TKPM participants.
