Hulu Selangor: PKR takes away 80 & 70 year old Indian couples jasmine flower plantation land.

JasmineThe couple planted jasmine plants for flowers on a plot of land opposite their house but the local authority removed them to build food stalls. “I fell on my knees asking for them to leave us alone but they did not listen. They told me I may ask for one of the stalls but nothing worked out”. 
Today, the stalls are mostly abandoned and no one has benefited. 
“If only they had left us alone”, said, his wife R. Saraswathy, 70, tearful. The jasmine flowers would have given them a stable income to carry on with life. 
Gurusamy expects more promises during this by-election but is hugely skeptical. (NST 8/4/2010 at page 12) 
Res Ipsa Loquiteour (the facts speak for itself). 
This is just the tip of the iceberg. We are aware of scores of Indians planting jasmine flowers who have been thrown out of even land under the high tension wires in Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Klang, etc.
Well to undo the injustices done by the previous UMNO government in Selangor, the present PKR led Selangor state government who have already been ruling for over two years could have offered these Indians land for these jasmine flower plantations, something like the Felda like ten acre land schemes for the Indian poor in Selangor by the PKR led Selangor by the PKR led Selangor State government. 
Does the Selangor PKR government even have any plan for the displaced Gurusamy?
Karunai Nithi @ compassionate justice.
