KUALA LUMPUR: Any housing redevelopment project to be implemented must stress on the interest of the people, says Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani.

He said local authorities and developers must discuss with the residents to explain the development concept that is planned to be implemented to avoid burdening them.

"We don't reject development but what is the use of redevelopment if the residents are marginalised," he said after opening a programme at the Seri Perlis 2 public housing project here today.

Johari, who is also Titiwangsa Member of Parliament, was referring to claims by some residents at the housing project that they were approached by developers on redeveloping the housing scheme.

The Seri Perlis 2 public housing project has 1,000 residents, most of whom are still renting their units from the City Hall (DBKL). — Bernama
