BY SIRA HABIBU
KUALA LUMPUR: MCA has exposed another controversial deal involving the Selangor government and Talam Corporation Bhd, this time involving four plots of land in Danau Putra, Sepang said to involve RM87.7mil.
MCA Young Professionals Bureau chairman Datuk Chua Tee Yong told a press conference on Tuesday that one plot of land, which was acquired for RM43.3mil, was totally submerged in water.
"The other three plots are partially submerged in water," he added.
He claimed that the fully submerged land was auctioned off for RM15mil, which is RM28.3mil lower than the price to acquire the land.
"80% of the area is submerged in water. Plot A (priced at RM18.3mil) is submerged two-third, Plot B (priced at RM43.3mil) is fully submerged, while half of plots C and D (priced at RM26mil) are under water," he said.
Chua claimed the Selangor government acquired the four plots of land on March 12.
"Plot B was auctioned off on Sept 7, 2010, following an advertisement placed in an English daily," he added.
