Stop it! Medan Damansara residents protesting against the hillslope development next to their homes by carrying a banner bearing the words, “Is the hillslope Damansara 21 project safe?” They want the Damansara 21 project, comprising 21 luxury bungalows, to be halted completely in wake of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide last Saturday.

KUALA LUMPUR: People are fed up with recurring landslide tragedies and the subsequent blame game by politicians.

Some residents in “risky areas” are now furious over new development on hillslopes near their home.

Medan Damansara Residents Association committee member Randhir Singh said residents want the Damansara 21 project in their neighbourhood halted completely.

In Bukit Antarabangsa, residents affected by Saturday’s landslide are planning to sue for compensation.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the Government was considering compensation for victims of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide.
