Selangor exco says ECRL 3.0 proves Perikatan federal govt a ‘big bully’

KUALA LUMPUR, April 5 — Putrajaya acted like a “big bully” in steamrolling through the latest version of the ambitious East Coast Rail Link (ECRL), Selangor executive councillor Datuk Teng Chang Khim said today.

Teng — in charge of investment, trade, industries and small and medium enterprises in Malaysia’s most developed state — claimed the Perikatan Nasional (PN) federal government did not engage the Selangor state government prior to changing back to an old and questionable route drawn up when the Barisan Nasional (BN) was in power.

“Under Section 20A of the Town and Country Planning Act, the Federal Government shall consult the Planning Committee of the state for such a proposed development.

“A meaningful consultation is one that satisfies the needs of both parties and not one that favoured by one party without the permission of the other,” he said on Facebook.
