8 March, KUALA LUMPUR – A total of 1,200 families residing at the Taman Segar flats in Cheras will receive bigger and more comfortable homes in place of their current homes, without any charge, says PM Najib Razak.
The PM said that the government would implement the project in collaboration with the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) within three years, to ensure residents had a quality home equipped with various facilities.
“Today, I got to look into the situation, which is linked to poverty in the city, whereby the building is too old, and it requires better facilities.
“With the effort of the government and DBKL, a project to replace the homes will be implemented, and within the next three years, each occupant who now owns a 500-sq ft apartment will receive a new 800-sq ft apartment of much better quality and with many facilities, such as a pool swimming and gym,” he said.
“I strongly support this project as another proof of the government’s efforts to ensure that all levels of people, especially the B40 group, can get the best possible support,” he said.
“We will be rebuilding it. In three years, Segar Residence will replace the residents’ homes from 500 square feet to 800 square feet, complete with basic amenities,” he said.
