I was informed by Ashleen Karim that so far about 50 people has signed up for the ORANGE WAVE PROJECT. After three weeks of promotion of this project, it is VERY DEMORALIZING AND FRUSTRATING
when the committee saw the numbers. We had blasted emails. We had broadcast via SMS and also published in Facebook, Yahoo groups etc. More sickening to hear is that the purchasers that calls me regularly to ask for project updates has not even shown any interest.
The committee finds this reaction is unacceptable. Are we asking too much from everyone? Some say they cannot participate because it was done on a Friday afternoon. These kinds of excuses are simply NOT
ACCEPTABLE. Why can’t we sacrifice our annual leave for half a day for a common good? To get ADEQUATE media attention we have to do it on a weekday.
The last project i.e. the banner unveiling is bearing fruit. There is now a greater interest in both state and federal government in getting this and similar projects to be completed. If you visit the site today, it can be seen that there are people working on all the blocks. The piling on water tank has resumed. For PKS/PKSR, nothing has been done as negotiations are in place for the developer wants to buy back this block. In Lestari Puchong, the SSG government has moved again and they are giving keys to about 100 buyers next week. This project is now recorded in the cabinet meetings.
As chairman without salary and perks, I have begged, appeal and face the authorities on our common interest. Is what we are asking is too much. We need to maintain pressure. It takes a strong political pressure to get this project completed and if we don’t capitalize the situation now with GE13 is around the corner, then there is no guarantee that it will be completed after the election.
I leave it up to you guys. If you want to participate, please contact Ashleen Karim at 0193891053
firstname.lastname@example.org . If by Friday 10th November, we don’t get a decent numbers of participants, then we have no choice but not to proceed. It only confirms one thing. Many people expect a lot from the committee but not willing to do their part. Is this fair?
