A Malaysia Nanban report said the families had been living there for the past 70 years. In earlier letters to the residents, DBKL requested the residents to move into rental houses built by the city council in Bukit Jalil, Puchong. The residents, in their counter offer, asked for houses in the Sri Alam, Sungai Besi area. DBKL rejected the request.
The residents are hoping that Federal Territories Deputy Minister M. Saravanan would look into the problem and find an amicable solution.
