Local Councils including MBKS should help the freak storm victims to rebuild their houses and roofs.

Local Councils including MBKS should help the freak storm victims to rebuild their houses and roofs. This will expedite the re-construction work which, if left to individuals, such effort to rebuild the houses and roof top will take much longer time.

There is nothing wrong for the councils to mobilise its resources to help rebuild these houses as the houses were damaged by natural disaster.

The excuse given by Dr Sim Kui Hian that these are “private property” is not valid reason, for government agencies throughout the world have known to help natural disaster victims to rebuild their homes.

Furthermore, this is the little benefits and securities that we tax-payers are entitled for paying our taxes.

Therefore, I call upon Dr. Sim to prioritise the re-construction of these damaged houses as the work of the ministry of local governments under his charge instead of bickering and fighting with the UPP over the appointment of local councillors.

The fighting with UPP over the appointment of councillors can wait, but to these storm victims, everyday’s delay is an unnecessary ordeal.
