Over the last 2 weeks I have been told of gangsterism issues especially when one is to construct a new building or project. Try doing it in places like Klang, Rawang, Seri Kembangan, Balakong etc. The moment there is a groundbreaking ceremony there comes some people to ask for protection moneys. If you don’t pay, be assured that your crane, tractor, bulldozer, building materials etc will soon be stolen.
This is not something new. I believe the authorities are aware of it. Similarly on the eyesore illegal advertisements which are dominated by ah longs; a never-ending problem.
Again the root cause is corruption…
Such problems can also be linked to social, education and economy factors.
