'Documents show BN okayed controversial condo'
LittleGiant: It is now very clear that the Selayang Municipal Council approved the building plans in November 2007 during the BN era in Selangor.
I hope the Indian community realises that BN is now blatantly politicising the issue to garner their support and put the current Pakatan Rakyat government in Selangor in bad light.
The whole bunch of Indian BN representatives are rotten to the core. The only way to punish them is to boot them out completely in GE13. They are a disgrace to the Indian community.
Changeagent: Former Selayang Municipal councillor and present deputy foreign minister A Kohilan Pillay and Sri Mahamariamman Batu Caves Temple committee president R Nadarajah should go and hang their own heads in shame for their dishonesty and unscrupulous lies.
They are trying to implicate the Pakatan state government by planting specks in the innocent party's eyes, but conveniently choose to ignore the gigantic plank the size of a 29-storey apartment in their own eyes.
Odin: Kohilan, on Friday, you were reported to have said, "Its (building permit) requirements were basic. It does not say how many storeys, what they want to do, none of that."
It would seem to any normal person that you either knew nothing about what you were talking about or you are just one despicable, low-down liar. But that's nothing new with you BN fellows, is it?
Daseen: All hill-side development or development near hillside need environmental impact assessment (EIA) clearance which is under the federal government.
Furthermore, this is compounded by development in the vicinity of a heritage. If in the future there is damage to the structure or a cave-in at Batu Caves, then the EIA consultant, the developer and the federal government ought to be liable.
Kit P: It certainly looks like this is one of many cases of BN maladministration prior to 2008. However, I think it is important that Pakatan, as the incumbent Selangor administration, should take a hard look at what it takes to stop the project.
In my line of duty, I have many times had to fix somebody else's mistake. Do what is right, even if it was not your fault to start with.
What is everyone going to do about this obscene condominium project that has been put up to obstruct Lord Muruga?
Wira: In all likelihood, Kohilan Pillay wasn't aware what was going on when he was the local councillor. He was just the rubber stamp of a corrupt Umno.
Asamko: The half-past-six ex-MIC president is trying again to convince the Indians that MIC is still their saviour, but this has backfired.
MIC is one of the culprits in collaboration with BN to approve this project but is now using race and religion to threaten the present Pakatan state government.
However, I think out of concerns for the Hindus and the temple, Pakatan may want to renegotiate the height of the condos with the developer.
Like Kampung Buah Pala and many other BN projects, Pakatan will have to take care of such illegitimate babies.
Lim Chong Leong: Time and again, Umno are caught lying through their teeth, without even batting an eyelid. And the Indians are again the victims.
Yet many idol worship their MIC lords for the crumbs that are handed down. No wonder the Indians in Malaysia are the first to be taken advantage of.
Abasir: Now that the details of what was quietly approved by BN is out in the open, the next thing that needs to be discovered is how many of the temple committee and MIC members had booked lots in the development.
Abuminable: I am sick and tired of witnessing such unbridled greed. Those who have made a huge pile can't seem to stop to enjoy their riches - they must carry on like drug addicts till they die.
It was disgusting to see Nadarajah garlanding PM Najib Razak and wife Rosmah Mansor like deities. He must believe that all the gods are as greedy as former MIC chief S Samy Vellu and himself.
Bert: The MCA used the Talam case to get at the Selangor government, then it did its best to use scare tactics to divide the people by using 'hudud'.
Now it is the turn of MIC and their cronies to discredit the Selangor government using the condominium issue beside Batu Caves.
It does not take a genius to come to a conclusion that it is all meant to take the current state government down in GE13.
AkuBangsaMalaysia: Enlarge the approved copy of the development order during the BN era and display it in front of the temple entrance as well as list down the names and photos of the BN councillors who sat in the approval committee for the layout plans.
