Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar said her 34 constituents do not need ridicule from their prime minister over the Residensi Kerinchi apartment complex.
She urged Najib Abdul Razak to respect the residents’ rights and quit slandering them.
“Najib, who could be facing a court indictment over investigations over 1MDB internationally, seems to have lots of time to attack me. I am excited about this.
“Even if he wants to politicise housing and development for the people, he need not hurt the feelings of residents by ridiculing them.
“I urge him to respect the rights of the residents, the hopes and dignity of the people of Kampung Kerinchi and the people of Malaysia,” she told reporters in Kuala Lumpur today.
Najib yesterday lambasted Nurul Izzah for allegedly trying to scuttle the redevelopment of the four-storeyed walk-up flats in Kampung Kerinchi in 2012, purportedly for political reasons.
Najib said the 34 affected residents regret being taken in by Nurul Izzah’s “incitement” that they now do not have new homes in Residensi Kerinchi.
