The spirit of neighbourliness was strongly felt at Taman Sri Aman Apartment, SS1, Petaling Jaya, on Saturday when the residents came out in full force to clean up their area.
Led by Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua, Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San and Petaling Jaya city councillor Ramakrishnan Suppiah, the residents sweated it out to scour the apartment where three dengue cases have been reported in the past months.
Alam Flora sent its workers to lend a hand, Fumakilla Malaysia Berhad sponsored the mosquito repellent products while the Petaling Jaya City Council’s (MBPJ) trucks and equipment facilitated the operation.
“This is the only place in my constituency reported to have dengue cases. The situation in areas under the MBPJ is not serious as compared with other municipalities in the state,” Lau said.
He urged the residents to take care of cleanliness in their houses and the surrounding area, adding that he was also following up on other problems they faced, such as leaking pipes and the setting up of seven more shops on the ground floor that have taken up motorcycle parking space.
He also bought a fogging machine, aerosol and mosquito liquid vaporiser for the residents.
