TANJONG KARANG, Aug 28 ― The Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government will be reviewing agreements made with the Selangor government on the management and maintenance of People’s Housing Programme (PPR) buildings in the state, said its minister Tan Sri Noh Omar.

He said the review would include the legal aspects of the original agreement while it waits a decision by the state government on the request by the Federal government to take over the management and maintenance of PPR buildings in the state.

“We submitted a letter to the state government on Aug 17 to take over the management of the PPR in Selangor.

“We are waiting for their response. We did it the proper way, and asked properly, and we hope they will give it (back the management of the PPR) in a proper way because we see that they cannot manage PPR in the state,” he told reporters when met on the sidelines of Tanjong Karang Umno Youth’s Delegates Conference here today.

Also present was Tanjong Karang Umno Youth head Maruwan Ahmad. ― Bernama
