TASEK GELUGOR: A central government allocation has improved the lives of Taman Tasek Rethina flat residents who had been living in discomfort since 2005/06.
Minister in Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop said the 502 families in the flats now live in comfort after the RM1 million upgrade from the government.
"This is important to ensure the people live in comfort. In a comfortable environment we can also ensure that children study well and succeed," he said.
He was speaking to reporters after the handing over of the completed upgrading project and opening the i-Cemerlang programme organised by the Sri
Murugan Centre (SMC) here today.
V. Gunasagaran, 52, a resident of the flats expressed gratitude for the BN government's care for their well-being.
"We suffered with clogged and broken pipes and frequent electricity cuts, now the building has been repaired and repainted. We thank the government for it
and will continue supporting Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Barisan Nasional," he said.
Another resident, Letchimy Suppaiah, 56, who has lived there for more than 20 years said the assistance has given a new breath of life to the flats and was
evidence of the government keeping its promises.
Nor Mohamed also informed that the government has allocated RM14 million to Indian non-governmental organisations nationwide this year, with RM4 million to SMC.
He added that SMC has played a significant role in creating thousands of Indian professionals and the government intends to enhance this method so that
more people can break the cycle of poverty. - Bernama
