2nd from rt Mr Lim Chong Yee, Chairman of the Board of Governors of SRJKC Mun Yee, came to express his support for the Petition Campaign

Updated @ 5:30 pm on 13-1-2012:  Yours truly has been informed that the Ministry of Education has sent out a notice to the organiser of the “Bazar Sore 1Malaysia” to remove all properties and permanent structures on the empty land in Prima Setapak failing which the Ministry with the help of DBKL will take the appropriate actions to remove all properties and demolish all permanent structures on the said empty land at 9:30 am on 14-1-2012.

 

Updated @2:30 pm on 13-1-2012 :  Datuk Amin bin Nordin, the Ketua Pengarah of DBKL, has announced that DBKL has rejected the application for “Bazar Sore 1Malaysia”. The reason given was due to the residents’ strong objections to the said Bazaar and that it will cause traffic congestion and other social problems. To date yours truly has collected more than 5,000 signatures.  On behalf of the residents in Prima Setapak, yours truly would like to say Thank You to DBKL for not allowing the setting up of the “Bazar Sore 1Malaysia” and upholding the principle of “Rakyat Di Dahulukan’. A personal Thank You to Datuk Amin for a job well done.

The residents in the Prima Setapak have been complaining about the traffic congestion and parking problems in the area. The setting up of the “Bazar Sore 1Malaysia”  has earned the anger of the residents. This morning (8-1-2011) yours truly has launched a Petition Campaign against it at the Pasar Pagi Jalan Getting Kelang in Setapak. The reactions of the residents of the area were very encouraging. This morning alone, there were about 400 residents have signed the said petition. The collection of signatures will go on for a few more days.

The contents of the said Petition are as follows:

Kepada;

YB Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan Dan Kesejahteraan Bandar

Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur

Kami, penduduk-penduduk yang menandatangani di bawah, membantah terhadap cadangan Bazar Sore 1Malaysia di Tanah Lapang milik Kementerian Pendidikan, di Jalan Prima Setapak, dari jam 2 petang hingga 2 pagi kerana Bazar tersebut akan mengakibatkan ketenteraman penduduk-penduduk tergugat, ganggu kacau, gejala social, jenayah ( pecah kereta, ragut dan lain-lain ), “noise pollution” , “air pollution“ , masalah kesihatan kerana kotoran kawasan sekeliling, kesesakan jalan raya, mengalang lalu-lintas kepada penduduk-penduduk dan lain-lain masalah yang ditimbulkan.

Kami percaya sekiranya cadangan tersebut diluluskan, keadaan di Prima Setapak adalah lebih teruk daripada keadaan di Bazar Larut Uptown, Danau Kota, ini adalah kerana keadaan jalan-jalan raya yang sedia ada amat sempit dan dikelilingi dengan banyak kawasan perumahan.

Kami berharap pihak DBKL dan Kementerian Wilayah Persekutuan dan kesejahteraan Bandar tidak akan meluluskan permohonan untuk mengadakan Bazar Sore 1Malaysia di tapak tersebut atau lain-lain aktiviti-aktiviti perniagaan diatas tapak berkenaan.

Cadangan kami supaya tapak tersebut boleh dijadikan kawasan permainan kanak-kanak dan juga kawasan rekreasi untuk penduduk-penduduk di kawasan tersebut dan kawasan-kawsan berhampiran.

Kami juga membantah supaya pihak Kementerian tidak memberi peluang kepada mana-mana individu atau organisasi untuk semata-mata mencari keuntungan sahaja kecuali keuntugan itu sampai kepada masyarakat setempat. Dan kami berharap logo “1Malaysia” juga tidak disalahgunakan oleh pihak-pihak yang berkepentingan dimana akhirnya slogan 1Malaysia ini tidak memberi apa-apa makna.

Kami berharap pihak Kementerian akan melaksanakan dasar “Rakyat Didahulukan” dan “Percapaian Diutamakan” bukan hanya kepada masyrakat di Prima Setapak dan Wangsa Maju khususnya tetapi juga di seluruh Negara

Sekian, terima kasih

Mr Lau Kok Heng aka "Kok Kok", the leader of the "agents" of the organizer of Bazar Sore 1Malaysia

During the walk about in the Pasar Pagi, yours truly was listening to the complaints from one of the residents in Prima Setapak

    Thank you YB for having the Petition campaign yesterday and we hope that the Bazar sore 1Malaysia will not take off. Read in STAR today that the organiser of Sore Market (Lau Kok Heng) is not happy with the petition.

    Doesn’t he sees the problem that the residents in Danau Kota is facing now. There is NO need to have such bazar, what more like this one that operate from 12pm-12am.

    Lau Kok Heng…why don’t you use your bloody brain…now with the morning market the traffic is bad, what more with the setting up of the Sore Market. Any blind man can see that it will cause many more problem other than traffic congestion. We (The residents of Prima Setapak) are not having negative thoughts but we are talking facts. You are helping to invite more crime, more social illness, causing unpeacefulness and on top of that the market is situated near schools.

    STOP talking about some traders trying ot earn some money by setting up stalls at Sore Market. This Sore Market actually benefits the organiser rather than the traders. Now you talked about 1.6ha with 350 stalls…..I can bet you after opening for 1 week or so…the number of stalls will increase to maybe 600. Don’t think you can bullshit the residents here.

    I sincerely hope and ask that the residents of PRIMA SETAPAK would fully support YB’s in his petiton campaign against the Bazar sore 1Malaysia. I surely don’t want to face the same problem that been faced by residents in Danau Kota & Setapak Indah now due the “Bazar Larut Malam Danau Kota”

    Such bazaar operating daily until after midnite in any residential area must not be allowed. This is not proper and healthy for the people. Inconveniences and social problems will be order of the day for the people. I support the petition campaign. All parties must cooperate to stop it. Unfortunately, the MCA Yew Teong Look, the champion of press conference is keeping very quiet. He is good in coming out in newspapers for showing up for picture of go tong royong only but when it comes to the people problems he will be hiding away. Danau Kota flat was Yew Teong Look’s baby when he was the MP for Wangsa Maju. I hope that he is not directly or indirectly involved in this Bazar Sore in Prima Setapak.

    Thank you so much YB and Datuk Amin. Prima Setapak residents would be very happy now that the Sore Market application been rejected. Hope that the same goes to the Bazar Larut Malam Danau Kota.

    DBKL, please move the Bazar Larut Malam Danau Kota to some other place which is away from the residential area, so that all residents in Danau Kota and those staying around there would get some peace and quite.
