SHaH alaM:
Leaking and peeling ceil-ings, among other problems, have delayedthe Petaling District Land Oce’s move toits new building at Section U5, Shah Alam.“We’re very dissatised with the new build-ing’s condition,” said Sekinchan assemblymanNg Suee Lim, who inspected it recently.he building, which was completed in2009, is also ill-equipped with lack o securityacilities and inadequate urniture and parking spaces.Ng said the storeroom which would beused to store important documents like landtitles did not have sucient protection againstres and oods.“Te state would be at risk o sufering greatlosses in the event o an accident. Te build-ing’s warranty period ends this month so we’veasked the contractor to x the problems soon-est,” said Ng.o add insult to injury, the lop-sided landtransaction or the oce has already cost thestate millions.Te building’s problem was highlighted bycivil servants to the special select committeeon land and district oces headed by Ng.He added that the contractor was ap- pointed without open tender in 2004 toconstruct the new home or the Petaling District Land Oce and other local depart-ments by the previous administration.“We still don’t understand why the previ-ous administration wanted to move the Petal-ing Land District Oce rom its strategiclocation in Subang Jaya to a remote suburb inShah Alam,” said Ng.He said the move waslikely to inconvenience the public as the new oce isnot easily accessible com- pared to the current oce which is near KM andbus stations.In 2006, the BarisanNasional-led Governmentswapped 1.68ha o landthe Petaling Land DistrictOce is currently occupying in Subang Jayaor the new oce in Shah Alam.Gapurna Builders bore the constructioncost o RM24.6 million or the new oce andits adjacent our housing quarters or seniordistrict ocials in 4.51ha o state land.In return, the developer obtained 1.23hao land at Jalan Kemajuan SS16/1 and 0.45hao Land District Oce quarters along JalanSS19/2 estimated to be worth more than RM100million now.Ng said even thoughthe lands were worth lessin 2004, the manner in which the developer wasappointed and the landswap lacked transparencyand smacked o crony-ism.He added that the select committee on thedistrict and land oces would continue to probe and report their ndings to the StateAssembly.Te controversial deal was rst reportedby English daily
in 2006 and raisedagain in the State Assembly in 2009.Former Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mo-hamad Khir oyo had reused to comment onthe issue when contacted by
Selangor Times 
.Te Social Welare Department has movedinto the new building but the Petaling LandDistrict Oce, Irrigation and Drainage De- partment, and Public Works Department willonly start to move in this month.Tey are expected to start operating in thenew oce in March. Te state may providebuses or taxpayers to reach the new oceuntil the public are amiliar with the newlocation.
