Over the last few days, concerns have been raised about the impending demolition of the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25, Puchong.

I understand that this demolition is at the initiative of the developer of the area called One City Development Sdn Bhd, who has obtained a court order giving them possession of the temple land. I am also informed that there is now a dispute over this court order.

I have discussed this matter today with YB Ganabatirau, Selangor State Executive Councillor, YB Charles Santiago, MP Klang, YB Gobind Singh, MP Puchong and YB Sivarasa, MP Subang.

In view of the fact that this is an old temple and the concerns raised by the community, I have spoken to the developer concerned and persuaded them to put their eviction of the temple on hold.

I will also be meeting all the relevant stakeholders within two weeks to discuss and find a suitable solution.
