MIC Youth lodges report over land issue
PUTRAJAYA: MIC Youth has lodged a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over allegedly questionable decisions made by the Selangor Government on land given to a school and two residential areas.
The report claimed that the Midlands Tamil School and former estate workers of Ladang Bukit Raja and Ladang Coalfield were given a raw deal by the state government.
MIC Youth secretary Sivarraajh Chandran said in the Midlands case, the Pakatan Rakyat-led government must answer for at least RM22mil out of RM25mil raised from the sale of land in i-City, Shah Alam, initially earmarked as the new site of the school.
He said the state only set aside RM3mil from the sale of the land and built the school on an alternative site with an additional RM1.9mil from public funds.
State executive councillor Dr Xavier Jayakumar denied the charges, saying that he had no knowledge of any such sale of land as alleged.
