Activists say re-gazetting of forest reserve mere ‘election candy’

A POLITICAL party championing environmental causes has labelled the Selangor government’s announcement on re-gazetting the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve (KLNFR) last week as “election candy”, ahead of the six state polls.

Parti Hijau Malaysia founder Abdul Razak Ismail said Menteri Besar Amirudin Shari was supposed to announce the re-gazetting last year when he announced the revoking of the de-gazettement in September 2021.
