Stringent regulations needed for public housing projects

I am a resident of RPN Kampong Panchor Mengkubau. In 2016, I filed a complaint regarding the state of my house.

After two years of radio silence, I gave up. So it came as a surprise when I received a call from the authorities recently to let me know that they would like to inspect my living quarters.

I’m not sure what prompted them to wait four years before taking action. Despite the long delay, I am appreciative of the visit and look forward to the repair works. However, in the back of my mind, I wonder if the contractors as well as the local authorities responsible for the project were ever held accountable for risking people’s lives for profits.

I would like to see more consideration for the safety of the people when sourcing for contractors for further housing scheme construction projects.
