45 plots of land sold without open tender under Ku Nan, claim MPs

45 plots of land sold without open tender under Ku Nan, claim MPs

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has sold 45 parcels of land without open tender since Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor became the Federal Territories minister, claimed opposition lawmakers.

Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai said he had obtained this information from parliamentary replies.

“This process is completely not transparent. So much land has been converted from public land to private land, and from being intended for residential use to commercial use.

“For this generation and the next generation, we are concerned that KL will have no more public land,” he told reporters after meeting KL mayor Mohd Amin Nordin Abdul Aziz at the DBKL headquarters this morning.

Tengku Adnan has been contacted for his response on this.

Tan said when the matter was raised during the meeting, Amin (photo) had maintained that the usual procedure was adhered to when selling the land.

Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng, who also attended the meeting, said the mayor contended that the open tender process “sometimes is not a good thing”.

The mayor listed an example where, after DBKL sold a piece of prime land through open tender to the highest bidder, the buyer failed to develop the land due to unfavourable market conditions.

“So the mayor said if he had not sold it to the highest bidder and not through open tender, he could have sold it at a reasonable price.

“Then the developer could have sold (units from the development) at a more reasonable price to housebuyers. Then, everyone will be happy.

“He (Amin) said that sometimes, selling through open tender to the highest bidder is not a good thing,” added the DAP lawmaker.

Amin has been contacted to verify this.

However, Lim (photo) described Amin’s explanation as “nonsense”, arguing that DBKL could always set conditions that allowed it to re-acquire undeveloped plots after a certain timeframe.
