MP for Moulmein-Kallang GRC Denise Phua said in Parliament on Monday that she has received 25 appeals from residents of Rochor Centre to have a dialogue with the authorities over the fate of their homes.
This after the area was slated for the construction of the North South Expressway.
Some 20 residents said they want a dialogue session with the Housing and Development Board and the Land Transport Authority to air their concerns over the land acquisition and subsequent move to Kallang.
The residents have also been busy collecting views on the issue to bring it up to the authorities.
Some are also concerned about the compensation they would receive, as some have recently spent thousands of dollars renovating their homes.
