It never crossed my mind that a landslide could happen in Putrajaya, but yet it happened"


The prime minister said: "The terraced slope in Precinct 9 had undergone reinforcement work with the planting of hundreds of trees since 10 years ago. I was shocked to hear news about the landslide. It never crossed my mind that a landslide could happen in Putrajaya, but yet it happened,"

Twenty-five vehicles belonging to the residents were either buried by earth that came crashing down from the 50-metre high slope, or pushed against the walls of Block B, one of the three affected blocks.

"They thought the slope was already strong as there had been no reports of landslides here. "Probably, there are weaknesses that had been overlooked, but we are doing the tests. "

Is this a sign of bad chi? In Pak Lah's shocking words: "It never can crossed my mind that a landslide could happen, of all places, in Putrajaya but yet it happened."
