SHAH ALAM, JAN 16: The State Government will re-examine the proposal to build a Chinese cemetery in Kampung Bukit Cerakah, Kuala Selangor following objections from residents of five villages in that district.

Dato’ Menteri Besar, Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said, he has directed the Kuala Selangor District Council (MDKS) to go down to the grounds, meet the residents and resolve the issues.
“There were, in fact, proposals from several parties to build a Chinese cemetery in that area, based on current needs.
“But since there are objections, we will re-evaluate and ask the local authority to meet the residents to get feedbacks,” he said recently.
Mohamed Azmin said, listening to the public is important to assess all views in arriving at the best solution.
Last January 11, about 300 residents from five villages in Kuala Selangor held a protest against the cemetery project proposal as the location is seen as unsuitable besides being too near their homes.
The five villages are Kampung Felda Bukit Cherakah, Kampung Bukit Kapar Tambahan, Kampung Bukit Hijau, Kampung Bukit Kerayong and Bandar Puncak Alam.
