COMMENT | Money a great leveller when it comes to bending laws

COMMENT | Ten years ago this week, history of sorts was created at the sitting of the Selangor state assembly.

A motion urging the state government through local authorities to investigate and stop any development projects implemented without planning permission was passed at a sitting of the legislature.

While the Pakatan Harapan government had always poo-pooed efforts by BN (they were fighting tooth and nail to score political points), the motion was tabled by Umno’s then Jeram assemblyperson Amiruddin Setro.

Tabling the motion, he said that such unapproved projects posed a danger to the people.

The core issue was of course unplanned development, which has spiralled out of control with existing infrastructure unable to cope with the resulting demands.
