Menangani masalah perumahan kos rendah 05/10/1994 BH
LANGKAH kerajaan menambah tabung pembiayaan rumah kos rendah sebanyak RM500 milion dialu-alukan. Keberkesanan langkah ini akan bergantung kepada sistem pengagihan serta pelaksanaan program rumah bagi rakyat berpendapat RM1,000 ke bawah. Agensi kerajaan yang memikul tanggungjawab sebagai pihak atau ejen pelaksanaan perlu memastikan perjalanan projek dengan penuh teliti. Oleh sebab projek seumpama ini membabitkan institusi dan individu, usaha ini terdedah kepada ancaman penyelewengan dan penipuan daripada proses pelaksanaan hinggalah kepada pengagihan hak milik. Walaupun pelbagai undang-undang dan peraturan digubal dan dikuatkuasakan oleh kerajaan dan menyenaraihitamkan 23 syarikat pemaju kerana pelbagai kesalahan termasuk menipu pembeli, tetapi pembeli rumah terus menjadi mangsa.
