State in need of PR1MA homes

Seeking clarification: Jagdeep showing a copy of the letter to be sent to Dr Ali Hamsa requesting an update on PR1MA plans for Penang.

The Penang government hopes the newly appointed 1Malaysia People’s Housing Scheme (PR1MA) chairman will turn the Federal Government’s aspiration to prepare affordable housing for the people into reality.

State Housing, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo urged Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa to ensure the PR1MA affordable housing would be provided to Penang in line with the wishes of former PR1MA chairman, the late Tan Sri Dr Jamaluddin Jarjis.

“We hope Penangites will get their share of affordable housing,” said Jagdeep during a press conference at Komtar.

He said a letter would be sent to Dr Ali Hamsa requesting clarification of the current situation.

The letter will highlight four aspects including the housing locations, total number of houses to be built, deadline for submission for planning approval and the deadline for the actual construction of PR1MA units in Penang. - By The Star
