Bukit Gasing rep urges residents to report dark streets

 | April 13, 2016

Rajiv Rishyakaran teams up with MBPJ to tackle dark streets and roads in his Bukit Gasing constituency.


PETALING JAYA: Bukit Gasing assemblymen Rajiv Rishyakaran has launched the “Please report dark streets” initiative in a bid to tackle crime in the area.

Speaking at a press conference, Rajiv said the initiative would be in force for a month, starting from today to May 15.

“We are seeking cooperation from the public. Please report to us as we are collecting data on this issue,” he urged residents of his constituency.

The assemblyman said he would also work with the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to assess and address residents’ reports of dark streets.

“Based on the information given to us, my office will make arrangements with the MBPJ to schedule their visits.

“We will then assess the situation and give feedback to the complainant.”

Rajiv said Bukit Gasing was not completely in the dark as 90% of roads and streets were bright enough.

“We just want to identify the dark locations that we have never identified before,” he said.

Rajiv added that he would accept reports from other constituencies, but would give priority to his.

“If other constituencies were to report about dark streets, I will forward the reports to MBPJ. But, I will give priority to Bukit Gasing,” he said, adding that he would also personally inform all residents’ associations about the initiative as well as inform residents via his Facebook.

“We hope the public would put their faith in this exercise,” he said.

MBPJ councillor Lee Suet Sen expressed delight on joining forces with Rajiv, saying that the cooperation would definitely speed things up.

“If this is successful, we will implement it in other constituencies.
