Malaysia: The Sri Raja Rajaswari Temple situated in Taman Sentosa does not have a legal status for its land . The Hindu temple’s application for the legal status of the land has been pending since 1995. The committee of the temple appealed for land for its temple officially in 1995, when the state was under Barisan Nasional rule, but only half acre granted for its temple .

Subsequently, during the time when Pakatan Rakyat took control over the Selangor state government, the temple, Seri Andals Assemblyman Xavier Jeyakumar counseled the temple committee to reapply for the land.


“When Pakatan took over, we were advised by Xavier to reapply for the land after he confirmed that the land had not been gazetted by the authorities,” said temple Chairman Palaiya Thachinamoorthy as reported by FMT (freemalaysiatoday.com).

The temple committee was then instructed by Xavier to make an application to the Klang Municipal Council, they later ratified the application on a prerequisite to writing a formal application to the land office.

“Xavier then launched the land. (However), we later received a letter from the land office that the land had already been gazetted as Open Space in 2011 during Xavier’s time as an exco member ,” stated Palaiya.

“Subsequently, we applied to have the land degazetted. A public hearing was conducted by the Klang Municipal Council and there were no objections from the public. However, to date, the land has not ben given to us.” Palaiya added further.

From then on, the temple committee have been repeatedly asking the government to get the matter resolved.

According to FMT, Palaiya said “The authorities have been pushing us here and there and have not resolved the problem. The Pakistan government has promised to sort it out and resolve this matter. Although, even the Menteri Besar has failed to give us an appointment to sort out the issue. The present Indian exco member has not been helpful either.”
The application written by the temple’s authority to the Klang district officer in July this year stated that none of the temple authorities and the surrounding residents had been informed via letter or signboard that the land had been gazetted, as reported by FMT.

Xavier could not be reached for the remark at the time of publication.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
