The Selangor state government today proposed that the conditions on Malay reserve land in the state be reviewed.
Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (pic) said the review was necessary to allow the land to be utilised for commercial and housing development, and simultaneously reap a higher return for the owners.
He noted that state Malay reserve lands were only slated for agricultural development.
"The review can also prevent the land from falling into the hands of other parties," he said, replying to Datuk Mohd Shamsudin Lias (BN-Sungai Burong) at the State Assembly today.
Abdul Khalid also proposed that any future development on Malay reserve land must be on course with the economic progress in the state geared towards urbanisation. – Bernama, December 2, 2013.
