Dear Yang Berhormat Mr Charles,cc: YB Ronnie Liu,cc: Andrew Sum (Bandar Botanic Residents Association)
Hope all is well.
I write to you in hope that something can be done with the rampant open burning that has been taking place on a daily basis at early mornings at Kg Johan Setia and Kg Kebun, area in Klang. Since last week, the daily burning has started at around 5am and ends by 8am.Everyday as I traverse KESAS from Bandar Botanic to Petaling Jaya at 7am, a thick plume of smoke is visible at Kg Johan Setia.
Now that the dry spell is in, the situation has worsen as wind directions have blown the smoke to Bandar Botanic and its vicinity. It was so bad today that I woke up this morning thinking that my house was on fire. For your information, I have made a telephone report to En Azman, from DoE, at 8:15am this morning. He said he will look into the matter but could not promise any outcome.
Please help us and this state rid irresponsible farmers and plantations of open burning for good! The hazards that open burning causes to the environment may already be irreversible!
