Najibs wants wall near TBS-BTS demolished

KUALA LUMPUR Jan 9 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has directed Syarikat Maju Terminal Management and Services Sdn Bhd (Maju Tmas) to demolish the wall obstructing a public passage near Terminal Bersepadu Selatan-Bandar Tasik Selatan (TBS-BTS).

Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said it includes the wall surrounding the bungalow of Kumpulan Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd executive chairman Tan Sri Abu Sahid Mohamed.

He said the government will not hesitate to withdraw the company”s TBS-BTS operating licence if it continues to ignore the directive.

Abu Sahid had given the area to the government for public use provided the surrounding area was developed but it the plan did not materialise.

"He can”t take back what had been given up. This is the final decision,” he said at a new year meeting with residents in Pantai Dalam today.

Abu Sahid plans to build 2,033 units of flats under Fasa 6 of Bandar Tasik Selatan but changed to five bungalows.

The plan has yet to receive approval from Kuala Lumpur City Hall.

Raja Nong Chik said Abu Sahid has the right to take legal action but it would not benefit anybody and victimise the people.

"We hope both parties will not lose out. Abu Sahid and nearby residents can use the recreation area and lake.” On another matter, he said operator has agreed to find a location near TBS-BTS for traders who could not afford to rent lots in the terminal.

The bus terminal which began operation on Jan 1 is managed by Maju Tmas, a subsidiary company of Maju Holdings Sdn Bhd.
