IPOH, August 21 – Sungai Siput residents have sent the state government a memorandum today asking them to address their infrastructure and business problems that have been going on for more than a decade.
Led by former Sungai Siput MP Dr D. Michael Jeyakumar, they have put their demands on an assistant of Mentri Besar Ahmad Faizal Azumu at the building of the state secretary of today.
Apart from the floods and the lack of affordable housing, the document also pointed to the deterioration of Orang Asli's ancestral land, the expulsion of small farmers and the lack of jobs for people on lower incomes.
It also covered economic issues, such as insufficient promotion of local products, low wages for agricultural workers, illegal settlements, abandoned developments and the need for a local library.
"These problems are not new, the residents have been facing it for a decade The previous mentri besar, Datuk Seri Zambry Abd Kadir, did not even want to meet us We did not receive feedback on the memoranda," Dr. Jeyakumar said.
"We hope that the current mentor will examine this issue and will be with us to talk about it."
He said he would submit the same memorandum to all sections of Pakatan Harapan in Sungai Siput, including the current MP, S. Kesavan, on Sunday.
When asked which of the problems requires immediate attention, Dr. Jeyakumar said it would be unfair to point out only one, since all 10 problems occurred in different parts of Sungai Siput and everyone needs a solution.
