The Majlis Perbandaran Ampang Jaya (MPAJ) never responded to my complaint. Is this indifference common among the local councils in Malaysia? The silence is more than disappointing. It is a blatant display of the “tidak apa” attitude that is making me lose confidence in the people who are entrusted to look after the interests of rate payers and the safety of the public.
Just when I thought that the MPAJ would sweep the matter under the carpet and conveniently forget about it, I received a copy of the letter the Jabatan Kerajaan Tempatan (JKT) sent to the MPAJ regarding my complaint. The JKT had instructed the MPAJ to look into my grievances, take relevant actions and provide a response to me.
I am waiting with bated breath for that elusive response from MPAJ. Will they be moved into action or ignore the directive from the JKT? Time will tell. In the meantime, Wuan and I are still risking life and limb whenever we need to make a trip to the shops. Does the MPAJ care enough? Lets wait and see.
* A scanned copy of the letter will be put up as soon as I get back to Penang.
