Kula refutes residents’ claims
IPOH: Ipoh Barat MP M. Kulasegaran has refuted claims that he has not been serving the public in his constituency, alleging it is a political gimmick to discredit him.
“I challenge my political opponents to compete with me based on my proven service record and contribution rather than using such methods,” he said here yesterday.
On Monday, a group of residents from Taman Ipoh Grove, Taman Hock Aun and Kampung Gunung Cheroh, all within the Kepayang state constituency, staged a protest against Kulasegaran and Kepayang assemblyman Diamond Loke's performance.
The residents claimed that Kulasegaran and Loke had never come to see them or looked into their problems after the 2008 general election.
Kulasegaran said he and his assistants had attended to various long-standing issues in Kepayang, which is under the Ipoh Barat parliamentary constituency.
“We have looked into the flood issue in Taman Ipoh Grove and the squatter problem in Taman Hock Aun that affected over 54 families,” he said.
He added there were two service centres in Kepayang, one in Jalan Kuala Kangsar and the other in Jalan Dato Seri Ahmad Said.
