Bandar Bukit Puchong UMNO was ordered by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to vacate within 30 days for illegally occupying a public playing field.

The MPSJ had issued a directive to the Bandar Bukit Puchong UMNO for the two containers to be removed within 30 days, failing which it will be demolished by the council. The notices were pasted on the containers on Feb 6.

Instead, UMNO has put up about 30 flag poles outside its "container office" bearing UMNO and Barisan Nasional flags on the field along Jalan BP3/1 in Bandar Bukit Puchong 3 on Saturday.

When contacted, MPSJ public relations officer Azfarizal Abdul Rashid said the owners of the containers have been told to remove both the cabins and the flag poles immediately.

On Jan 27, a meeting between residents and their MP to discuss the encroachment turned violent, when a group, claiming to be from Bandar Bukit Puchong UMNO, arrived with 20 others.

Resident Eugene Mark Gabriel alleged the group threatened and harassed the residents, telling them that this was an UMNO matter and that the residents should NOT interfere. Eugene claimed he was shoved and evaded a punch thrown at him by one of the men.

Residents lodged a report at the Puchong police station later that day and two UMNO members were questioned.

Early this month, when asked to comment on the matter, Selangor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo said no one is above the law, not even political parties.
