Description: During the town hall session, Peninsular Malaysia Forestry Department's Wetlands Forest Management principal assistant director Harry Yong urged the state government to reconsider its plan as it would lead to a “waste of public funds”. This was because tax money had already been spent to restore the once razed reserve. “The state government has built a fire prevention infrastructure in this forest reserve. “We estimate that the state and federal government have invested about RM2.2 million to conserve this forest and better manage our forests from forest fires,” Yong said.
