“Selangor is developing and there are many complaints on infrastructure, such as on potholes, clogged drains and non functioning streetlights. “It would be more difficult if they (state assemblymen) are outside (the council),” Khir told reporters.
Dr Khir urged the federal government to consider the situation in Selangor which differed from other states. “I know the Cabinet has yet to make any decision (on the position of assemblymen serving as councillors) and the Housing and Local Government is still collecting details. I just want to say Selangor is different,” he said.
Ya, Selangor is very different from other states. Selangor had more problem... more corruption problems and also have far more councillors who built houses without the need to comply with the law. They are in fact, absolutely different!

It is too early to talk about this. Nak buat kacau buat apa? (why stir things up?)”
