I would like to say well done to the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the police for actively cleaning up the nation's capital this time.

Starting with the massive arrest of foreigners involving 1,000 members and police officers of the General Operations Force (PGA) who surrounded 'mini Dhaka' in a special operation at Jalan Silang.

The operation was followed by a special action by DBKL in Petaling Street which is a crowded area.

The enforcement action focuses on business activities that commit obstruction offences related to placing merchandise on the street, pedestrian walk and premises without a foreigner's license.

After Jalan Petaling and Masjid India, DBKL also raided Jalan Haji Taib and Chow Kit which also became the focus of foreign traders and hawkers, especially from Bangladesh and Indonesia.

Also checked are business activities and hawkers consisting of sexual ‘medicines’, food, drinks and used clothes involving foreign workers, assistants, traders and operators from the two countries involved.

For a long time, local have been complaining about the rampant immigrants in the country.

Their presence not only brings various social problems but also reduce business opportunities and livelihoods of the locals.

In addition, their presence in large numbers and forming a colony causes the image of the capital Kuala Lumpur to be very bad, especially for tourism.

I hope that the strict action will be continued.
