PM: No property will be demolished for MRT project

PETALING JAYA: The Prime Minister has assured his followers on Twitter and Facebook that no building will be demolished to give way for the My Rapid Transit (MRT) project in Jalan Sultan.

“I assure you that no properties on Jalan Sultan will be acquired for the MRT project. They will be declared as heritage buildings,” Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said on his Facebook and Twitter accounts yesterday.

Najib’s posts reiterated his comments during Chat Time with Najib, which was broadcast live on ntv7 on Monday.

“I can give a categorical assurance that we will not acquire their land. We only want permission to go below their land and will make sure their properties are not affected.

“We will declare them as heritage properties and will strengthen buildings that are not structurally strong,” he said during the 90-minute interview.

Later on Twitter, Najib announced in Bahasa Malaysia: “The new Bill that will replace the ISA has been discussed in Parliament, as promised on Sept 15 last year,” referring to the Security Offences (Special Measures) Bill which would replace the Internal Security Act 1960.
