Batu Caves temple panel may sue state govt over condo project
SELAYANG, Malaysia (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The Batu Caves temple committee is giving the Selangor state government one month to scrap the proposed development of a 29-storey condominium in the heritage area, failing which it will take legal action.
Temple committee chairman Datuk R. Nadarajah said he will discuss the matter with lawyers and the Attorney-General's Chambers before taking further action.
"We cannot get what we want without a fight. If there is no sign of permanent stop-work order a month from now, we will take the matter to court," Mr Nadarajah told reporters after addressing a group of protesters this morning.
Earlier in the day, a few hundred people started gathered in the compound of the Batu Caves temple complex to protest the condominium project. The protest was organised by the Batu Caves temple committee.
