They are unhappy that the plan did not include some of the ideas that were suggested when the draft plan was first introduced…
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he had received mixed reviews from his constituency on the lack of LRT in the area. "Residents of the more affluent places like Taman Tun Dr Ismail and Bukit Damansara were unhappy when they first found out about the proposed LRT line. Now with the amended plan, no such development has been marked so they are happy. On the other hand, places like Sungai Penchala, Kampung Segambut Dalam and Desa Park City are made up of middle-income and lower-income people and they have been waiting for the LRT line to come so this is a disappointment to them," added Lim.
He also said KL mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail had left several areas untouched to accommodate the Greater KL plan by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.Lim said the Greater KL's biggest project was to provide an MRT line in the

Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng has denied allegations that he was drunk during the Selangor DAP convention on Sunday, saying that he was merely "overjoyed" with Seputeh MP Teresa Kok's victory.
