City Hall shelves Cheras Crematorium privatisation plan
KUALA LUMPUR: The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has been ordered to shelve its plan to privatise the Cheras Crematorium, Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said today.
He said the order was issued two weeks ago.
"DBKL and the ministry are looking into the matter and will find the best way to address the problem," he told reporters after launching a "gotong-royong" organised by Block P20 Residents Association at Jalan Pantai Dalam here.
As such, Raja Nong Chik said, the suggestion by MIC president Datuk Seri G Palanivel for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's intervention in solving the issue on the 37-year-old crematorium was no longer necessary.
On a ruckus that broke out at a Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) rally in Pantai Dalam, not far from another rally organised by Umno, last Thursday, Raja Nong Chik, who is also Lembah Pantai Umno division chief, said he would issue a statement on the matter tomorrow. -- BERNAMA
