Kamalanathan reveals plans for Hulu Selangor's next five years

KUALA LUMPUR: Caretaker Hulu Selangor Member of Parliament, Datuk P. Kamalanathan, today revealed the numerous plans in store for residents of the constituency in the next five years.
For one, two new public universities – an Islamic University and The National Defence University are among the projects in the Barisan Nasional (BN) manifesto if the party is re-elected to represent the constituents in GE14.
Kamalanathan, who will be defending his seat, said the two universities are sure to bring plenty of economic development to the local residents in view of the expected influx of a large number of students.
"Apart from this, we will also continue with the rehabilitation of Sungai Buaya and Lembah Beringin. The BN has also pledged to build a complex for the aged in the constituency which will also cater to the needs of disabled," he said.
As for the Orang Asli community, the Selangor BN will ensure that the entire settlement in the state is gazetted if they take over the state government.
"In fact, the allocation for the gazetting has already been approved and is being done in stages. From the RM1.3 million allocation, RM500,000 is for Hulu Selangor alone," he added.
Kamalanathan also said the construction of a motorcycle race track for the youth was also in the pipeline, to provide them a safe and conducive environment for the motorsport.
"Housing is a major part in my Hulu Selangor manifesto. For one, I want to increase the number of low cost houses in the constituency, increase housing facilities for those in the public service and also provide more affordable homes for the second generation Felda settlers," he said.
Other highlights of his manifesto include the construction of more classrooms for overcrowded schools in high density areas and the introduction of Rural Transformation Centres to further enhance the government's delivery system.
"There has been plenty of development in Hulu Selangor in the last eight years. From new school buildings, such as SJKT Kalumpang and SJKC Rasa, to hundreds of millions of ringgit spent on interchanges to spur economic growth.
"Numerous projects were also carried out to ease congestion in the constituency, like the Sungai Buaya interchange and Rawang Serendah highway," he added.
He pledged to continue working hard to help improve the living standards of people in the constituency and also do his part as a member of the MIC for the betterment of the Indian community.
