Endless misery of Bkt Jalil Estate

While Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim offers better plans for the Malay muslim Kg.Baru
settlers, what plans does he have for the poor Indian former plantation workers of Ladang Bkt.Jalil which is in his Parliamentary
constituency Bandar Tun Razak?
"I was born here and worked all my life in this estate, now they want ask us to leave with RM6000 and a low cost flat, they want to demolish our temple, they want to relocate our Tamil school to a religious school but at the same time they promise to negotiate and look at our miseries and plights" That are the words from the workers and former workers of Ladang Bukit Jalil, they are willing to co-operate with the government if at a fair compensation is offered. The MP for Bandar Tun Razak is non other than the Chief Minister of Selangor, Khalid Ibrahim. CJ Arvind Raj had the opportunity to witness several digital photographs of documents which stated that the Lot No.45584 as "TDK" and not "STATE LAND"
