SHAH ALAM - Parti Ikatan Demokratik Malaysia (Muda) questioned why there is no action taken to stop the extreme logging activities up until now around the Sungai Telemong, Bentong, Pahang area.

Muda Vice President, Dr Thanussha Francis Xavier, through a post and a video on her Twitter brings up the cause of massive floods that hit the area.

“What exactly has caused such massive floods to hit the area so badly? What has been done to the point there is no action taken?” she asked on Sunday.

The Pahang government on last Tuesday (December 28) reportedly was still waiting for a complete investigation report from the Pahang Forestry Department (JPNP) following the heaps of timber logs in Sungai Telemong last week.

Pahang MB, Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail said, the report will be completed by JPNP in due time before submitting it to the government.

Dr Thanussha also claimed that the indigenous people villages in the area were destroyed due to the flood and the nearby Tamil school was also flooded.

“The villages of the indigenous people are the worst due to being hit by the massive flood and they are living in a tent up until now.

“Where is the compensation for the victims? Why is there no action taken to stop the extreme logging?,” she posted on her Twitter.

At the same time, she also questioned if timber companies need to be sued for the logging activities in the area.
