Forum: MRT – Are Malaysians Taken for a Ride?

Visit the Facebook Event Page here.

Given the controversies arising from construction and implementation of Malaysia’s largest infrastructure project, the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) system, DAP will be organizing an English forum entitled “MRT: Are Malaysians Taken for a Ride” to discuss the project.

The controversies arising from the project would include, but are not limited to the disputed land acquisition exercise in Chinatown and Bukit Bintang, the planning and implementation process as well as the transparency and governance relating to the award of projects.

The details are as follows:
Date: 26 September 2011
Time: 7.30 pm
Venue: KL Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall, Jalan Maharajalela, Kuala Lumpur
The panel of speakers will include:
  • Nurul Izzah Anwar, MP Lembah Pantai
  • Fong Kui Lun, MP Bukit Bintang
  • Tony Pua, MP Petaling Jaya Utara
  • Rajiv Rishyakaran, Association For The Improvement of Mass Transit (TRANSIT)
  • Goh Bok Yen, Land Use & Transportation Planning Consultant
We have also sent an invite to the Chairman of Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD), Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar or its representative to be a panelist for the forum. We look forward to SPAD’s participation to explain the various positions taken by the Government on the project to date.

may I ask what qualification does Syed Hamid Albar have to enable him to hold this important position?

this was the guy who ISA a female journalist for reporting what Ahmad Ismail was subsequently censored for in UMNO.

how many bus, lrt, taxi ride this fellow has taken for the past years to fully understand the woes of the citizen.

probably the ridiculous land grab issue he understands better
